Corrugate Guide Pant
4-Way Stretch Nylon with DWR

The award winning Corrugate Guide Pant takes its inspiration from rock climbing and mountaineering. These nylon pants are constructed around a simple design concept that allows the hunter uninhibited freedom of movement while providing easy access to storage by way of our 3D double cargo pockets. With both belt and suspender loops as well as a DWR finish to help keep you dry, the Corrugate Guide pant has solved the problem of the complete all day hunting pant. If the Obsidian Pant is a Formula One car, this is our armored truck.

Very comfortable and very loud. 7/15/2018

THE BEST 7/10/2018

I purchased these pants for a slightly "tougher" version of the obsidians. These have by far become my go to pant for just about anything. Whether your September elk hunting in Colorado or chasing whitetails in the Midwest. I would say your safe into the 40's without a base layer. Throw different levels of base layers on and the sky is the limit with these suckers


How it fits
I'm 6'1" with a 32" waist and the Medium tall is perfect.

Best turkey hunting pants ever!! 7/5/2018

Bought these just prior to this year's spring gobbler season in Virginia and I can't say enough on how well these pants performed! The stretch of these are superior, making any situation you may get yourself in, comfortable. The nylon makes these pants extremely durable, which gave me confidence while belly crawling to get into position. The Corrugate pants will be my go to pants for any hunting situation!

Best fitting pants that I have ever worn. 7/3/2018

I bought these pants for this upcoming hunting season. I haven’t been able to use them in the field yet. But they fit so well that I wear them almost every day now. Looks like I am going to have to buy a few more pairs.

Amazing Hunting Pants 7/2/2018

These pants are amazing, I hunt down on the AZ border for coues deer every year during the early archery season and these pants keep do a great job. It's plenty hot and humid that time of year and these pants keep me nice and cool while being super comfortable chasing deer all day.

I'd wear these all the time! 6/29/2018

I'd wear these pants all the time...they are absolutely the most comfortable pants I've ever worn! I've started wearing them anytime I have to go on a long road trip...no binding, I wear them whenever I want to just relax around the house too. I like them so much that I bought the guide short and have been wearing them the last two days. I'm 6-'5" and 205 pounds...the large talls fit perfect.

Essential Elk Gear 6/26/2018

Took these on my Colorado elk hunt last September and was thoroughly impressed. Over 7 days in the Lizard Head Wilderness, these pants went up, over, around, and through every obstacle. I managed to fall and split my shin open on a log, but the pant showed zero sign of puncture or abrasion.

They repelled way more water than I originally expected and dried fairly quickly. The comfort and flexibility in these pants are just incredible, which is why I also wear these under my waders during duck season.

Only note is that I’m 5’9, 160lbs and usually wear a 32in waist, but the medium was too big, with too much extra fabric. The small was a little snug in the waist but fit perfect everywhere else.

Great Pants!!! 6/3/2018

Wore my corrugate guide pants for the Total Archery Challenge shoot this weekend at Seven Spring PA...they performed as expected...EXCEPTIONALLY! Best hunting pants I've ever worn! Hiked 8+ miles a day carrying my pack and bow while shooting around 75 arrows each day and the Corrugate guide pants kept me cool at 80+ degrees and 95%+ humidity the whole time! If there was one thing I had to critique, it was the lack of a draw string on the cuff of the pants...would have been nice to cinch them up at the bottom, but there were no issue the way they are either!

Awesome Pant for Any Weather Hunt 6/1/2018

These pants are great for that hot weather hunting, early September archery elk hunts or scouting in mid May. I can also see them being great though October or November then just adding a base layer for December January. Either way these have the perfect amount of stretch and comfort. I ordered the Medium Tall and they fit perfectly, I'm 32, 36. Hope this helps!

2 thumbs up. 6/1/2018

Used these along with the obsidian pants while spring turkey hunting. The corrugate pants worked beautifully on 2 day of season when it was windy cold and spitting snow. They kept me dry and warm. Look forward to using them this fall in BC for mtn goat and Wyoming for Elk then back to Oklahoma for deer.

Comfort of sweatpants, breathability of no pants 5/1/2018

These pants are awesome. I ordered a medium tall (175 lbs, 6'0") and they fit perfectly. The material is super soft and stretchy, reminding me of sweatpants, but they breathe very well. I have had no issues walking through any brush and it seems like any stickers just slide off the pants. Out of the box they had the "wshhh" sound when the legs glide together while walking, but they are getting quieter with time. Tough to get complete silence out of anything durable. Best hunting pants around, period.

These pants rock 4/25/2018

I went turkey hunting the other day and had to walk side hill up hill then down hill. I was never cold in the 39 degree morning. And on the 70 degree return. I was never hot. We walked thru heavy scrub and crossed 2 old barb wire fences. Even slid a little on the steep rock. It want your standard turkey hunt. These pants held up great. I can't wait to test the limits of these pants

Great Pants for Almost Every Outdoor Activity 4/24/2018

I have not had the opportunity to really push these pants to the limits yet, but after a few days of hiking and hunting with them, I am very happy. These pants are very comfortable and though. They have become my go to rock climbing pant as well. The stretch in the fabric is perfect. No matter what movement you are doing, you don't have to worry about adjusting your pants.

As far as how loud the pants are, I agree that if you are walking around your house, or anywhere that has not ambient noise, you would say the pants are very loud. However, once you get out in the woods, it doesn't seem to be an issue.

I am a 34 waist and I got the large. They are a little big in the waist, and I think I would have gotten a better fit with a medium. I am going to see if a tailor can bring the waist in a little.

Overall, these are great, and I have recommended these pants to everyone I know.

Great Fit, Great Feel 4/22/2018

Great pants 4/19/2018

These pants are great. They've turned into a day to day piece of clothing for me. Very comfortable and durable. The longer cut is nice for tall people. I never had to worry about them tearing in the brush this season. They can be noisy so I wouldn't wear them for an archery hunt.

Nickname: Cody
Awesome 4/18/2018

Just wore these the other week and did some creek crossing - repelled water well and when wet dried out at a fast rate.

What I would change in the design is adding a drawstring or elastic in the ankle to keep tight - I may add it in myself

Tough SOBs 4/17/2018

I hunt in the mountains and deserts of NM, where every plant, shrub, or roll of brush wants to kill you. These pants hold up to even the thickest of mesquite thorns without even a snag. They have also seen there share of rocks in our mountains, taken slips, falls, and slides; never needing more than a quick dusting off. on my last hunt the temps ranged from 22 Degrees in the morning to 74 degrees in the afternoon. and at no point were these pants uncomfortable. These things are also just plain functional. i bought another two pair in dry earth and conifer just for hiking.

Nickname: Rob
Comfortable and durable 4/17/2018

I did not know pants could be this comfortable. The stretch on these pants gives you full range of motion for bringing your legs up high to go over logs or whatever. The pants are surprisingly durable as well. I thought they would snag and not be super tough because of the stretch but they are extremely durable. I have used them this spring looking for antlers busting through thick nasty brush and they have held up fine. Good for wearing around town to!

Nickname: Tanner
Great pants 4/12/2018

The pants are great... comfy, super light and not restrictive albeit a tad noisy. Also note that the regular cut is way too short for me (34" inseam). Not a little bit short but... have you ever seen hunting capris? My efforts to find the tall cut has been fruitless except in the XL-XXXL. Super pants though

Bomb Proof Pants 4/11/2018

I purchased these pants last week and they immediately got put through the wringer. First off I have to give props to the phone staff at first lite. The fellow I talked to was super knowledgeable and talked hunting and tried to get me into the right gear. The first outing for these pants was a Texas turkey hunt, I ended up having to belly crawl 200 yards across rocky/cactus covered ground to get into position. The pants look no worse for the wear. 2 days later I did a 12 hour/29 mile off trail hike and the pants were super comfortable and had no rub spots. The pocket setup is awesome/zipper for phone with gps and stuff it pocket for buff/gloves. I'm 6'3 195lbs and the Large Tall fit great with room for winter layering. 5 stars.

Nickname: Elijah
So Comfortable!!! 4/9/2018

I love these pants! They have become my go to pants for pretty much all seasons. Great for early season and also warm enough for late season with a base layer. I do wish First Lite made them in a fixed sizing for a better fit...I'm not a huge fan of the elastic waste band, but they are very comfortable. Due to the elastic, the Med size is too big, but the SM is on the snug side. Exact sizing would eliminate this for me. But...I'll still be using these this year!

Best Pants I Own. Period. 4/6/2018

Where do I even begin? These pants fit amazing. I’m a 31” waist and the mediums fit me perfectly. I really like that they have an athletic cut. It just feels better to me to not have a bunch of extra fabric hanging off of me. I’ve put these things to the test and they’ve performed flawlessly. From sopping wet waist high grass to briar thickets and everything in between these pants are the ticket.
Main selling points: Extreme comfort, Durability, and I’ve not found them to be the least bit noisy.

Awesome pants 4/5/2018

I received my corrugated guide pants a few weeks back. They are extremely versatile. I have used them hiking, bike riding, shed hunting and as every day pants. The flexibility of the material make the corrugated guide pants very comfortable climbing over dead falls and hiking up and down steep slopes. I’m very happy with them. They are my go to activity pants now. Thanks for the great product.

Super comfy in any season 3/27/2018

I wear these guide pants from August antelope to late november muleys. They are super comfortable with plently of room through the seat and taper down towards the ankles so you're not worrying about making a bunch of noise on a stalk. They breath awesome in the warmer weather and when it cools down, through some long johns on keeps you plenty warm. If you like a more fitted pant I would size down, if you like a roomier fit go with your regular size.

Good pants, still a little too warm for early season 3/17/2018

Great pants and perfect cut. A couple things I would like to see integrated into the Corrugate Guide Pant to make them the perfect early season hunting pant would be:
1) Leg zips with a mesh fabric to dump heat from legs when moving uphill
2) Integrated webbing micro belt to take the 0.5 -1 size out for the waist area.

Something like Prana Stretch zion belt system would be idea as wearing a belt with heavy loads becomes aggravating and suspenders bring about their own issues. Besides that, I would really like to see some internal heat management built into the pants, I cannot be the only guys sweating my legs off in Early september!

Quiver of one 3/16/2018

From elk in Colorado to whitetail in New York with squirrels, turkey and all manner of winged game in between these pants have performed well through all. Solid camo pattern works almost everywhere. Mid weight soft shell can layer up or down easily. Practical pockets. Excellent price point.

A performance hunting garment manufactered by a company that supports conservation and the future of hunting - the whole package - well done First Light!

I bought my first pair of corrugate pants at a sportsman’s show and after getting them home I immediately knew I should have bought a second pair! Soft, sturdy and most of all super comfortable!

Exceptional Pants 3/6/2018

Over the years I've went through a lot of pants, primarily hunting the Northeast where temperature and conditions vary widely from year to year. These pants have become the mainstay of my kit. As other reviewers note, they are extremely versatile--I've worn them in a variety of situations from early season deer scouting to late season small game. They are light enough for early season and yet with proper layering can be worn well into freezing. A great product, well worth purchasing.

Great fit, a little noisy while walking 3/3/2018

The Corrugate Guide Pants are extremely comfortable and fit great. Below the knee the pants are slim, but not too tight, which is perfect for me and I like not having them flap around. I bought the "long" pant which is better for covering my boot tops, especially while sitting. The fabric is tough. The only downside is it is a bit noisy (as compared to fleece or wool) but not enough that it will stop me from wearing these.

Excellent Pants! 3/1/2018

I wear these all the time when I am hunting and hiking. They are my go to pant and are excellent in terms of comfort and movement. I have climbed over fences, up mountains thru thick brush and the pants have held their own. I will be getting a couple of more pairs as I want one in the the Dry Earth Color and Conifer Color. The belt loops work excellent also with my hunting belt.. I usually hang a knife and bear spray on my belt and the loops help keep everything right where they should be. Additionally the pockets are well placed and thought out. Definitely would recommend these pants for any outdoor enthusiast/hunter.

Fantastic Pant 2/6/2018

I was pleasantly surprised by these pants. The material is stretchy and allows for a vast range of motion. I was pleased to find out it must be somewhat water resistant as well. I had to crawl through some snow on a warm day, and typically with every other pant, my knees and shins are soaked. These did not absorb any water at all. I continued to stay comfortable the rest of the day.

Great do all Pant 2/5/2018

I used these for everything from Whitetail, to Ducks and Geese and I plan to use them on turkeys this spring. It really has been a great do it all pant. I would use them duck hunting and then through them in my scent tote and take them deer hunting. Wore them early season and then added the 230 Allegany bottoms for late season mid teens weather and was fine for long sits in the deer stand. I couldn't ask for a better pant. I have heard a few people say they are kind of noisy, I'm a big guy with big thighs and did not notice it being a problem. Can't wait to add a pair of two in solids. I have yet to find a pant that I like better then these. Worth every penny!!

LOUD 2/3/2018

I love these pants. The fix was exactly what I expected. All the pockets are in great locations and are easy to use. The one and only flaw that flaw that these pants have is the material they are made from. I wore these pants during the entire early season (late Aug thru early Sep) here in southern Arizona chasing Coues deer. I was able to sneak to within 40 yards of most of the bucks I pursed despite the noise produced by these pants. It was just hard for me to continue to wear them when my pants were making more noise than anything else. Even while siting in a ground blind I had to take them off because, just moving down from my stool onto my knees in preparation to shoot these pants would make too much noise. So keep this in mind if you are looking for a pant that you want to try and get close to animals in. Its not impossible but I would highly suggest thinking about going with the “Obsidian Pant” over this pant.

Best Hunting Pants I’ve owned for mobile hunting 1/31/2018

These pants are awesome, they are durable and also very stretchy so when your going over fallen trees you don’t have to worry about rips right before shooting a giant whitetail. Also the pants are very breathable when your putting the miles in looking for that massive bull elk in the mountains of Montana.

My favorite pants 1/24/2018

If I was smart I would buy a dozen pairs of these pants, as I’m sure they will change or be discontinued someday like everything else that is perfect.
Easily the most comfortable hunting pants I have ever worn, they take all the drama and suspence out of stepping over blow downs.
They are great for a wide range of temperatures, I even wore them chukar hunting one five degree (Fahrenheit) and never felt like I needed heavier pants.

Comfortable 1/23/2018

As a lot
Of the other reviews say, these are super versatile pants. They’re lightweight, dry fast, don’t get you too hot and seem to be holding up well to the blackberry infested areas I call the elk woods. I like how they love with my body and especially that they don’t bind up in the crotch area. My Kanabs basically just sit in my closet know because I like these so much. The DWR is helpful, I did find them to be a tad noisy when I first got them, but I was comparing them to my 100% merino Kansans, so that may not be truly fair. Great pants, no complaints.

Nickname: David
Almost perfect pair of backcountry pants 1/21/2018

A friend recommended these pants because he liked them so much. I ordered a LT for added length when hiking and they fit perfect. The material is very comfortable, blocked the wind, and had great temperature range. Pocket size and design were really nice. I would probably give them 4.5 stars but then rounding up it would be 5 due to them being not as quiet as the Obsidian pant. Loved them.

Out-effing-standing 1/21/2018

First solid year running the corrugate guides. I've always had issues with hunting pants breaking down, ripping, or chaffing my inner thighs up. I've run these pants (I own only one pair at the moment I bought used) every day I've hunted this season. Nearly 100 days total including every day on a 9 day hunt in the quachitas in Arkansas in October. They get a little warm in early season but nothing you can't stand, and any sweat or water that gets them wet dries in 10-20 minutes if your active maybe a half hour or so if your not. I've only got one small stitch area that separated but that's from a saftey harness. Well worth the money spent and getting ready to buy a few solid colors for wear outside of hunting.

Great all around pant 1/15/2018

I have the guide pant and the obsidian. The guide pant is definitely the most robust pant in the line up! They repel water when walking through wet grass or brush and dry quickly. They do seem to be a bit short on me where the obsidian in the same size is not short just FYI! One thing they could improve on is some way to roll them up like the obsidians because this pant can get hot in the early season.

last pant you'll buy 1/14/2018

Got the Corrugate Guide Pant midway through 2016 season, 2017 being the first full season with the them. I wore these 75-85 days in Montana in 2017 and roughly half that in 2016. From spring bear to summer scouting/fishing trips into the high country and pretty much everyday from September through Thanksgiving in elk country, these pants were unstoppable. They do not make you overheat on July and August scouting trips, easy to layer under in November, they do not snag in the thickest of underbrush, and are extremely COMFORTABLE...great great pant..now they need a pair a little thicker

The only pants you will ever need. 1/10/2018

I am a hunting guide for about 4 months out of the year and wear them at least once a week in between hunting season. So it is safe to say that I use these more than most. I own both the Corrugate and Obsidian pants, I love them both, but the Corrugates are by far my favorite. If you need to wear one pair of pants for a whole year without washing them I would pick the Corrugates without question. The Obsidians have their place in my toolkit but there are not a lot of situations that I would pick them over the Corrugates.
So with being a guide I wear them everyday they get bloody just about on a daily basis and I beat the living s*** out of them. You get the typical beading of fabric on high wear areas but nothing serious. I have used them in terrain ranging from high shale fields to the thorns in Texas and have never had an issue, As far as blood goes, you can scratch it off once it dries and it is good as new.
I am 5'11' 210 and the the normal mediums fit a little long but I like that for hunting.
If you are balling on a budget and need one pair of pants I recommend you get these.

Great fit, does not hold up well after prolonged use 1/1/2018

I love these pants, the fit and stretchiness of these are second to none. However I use them for work, at work I drive a lot and go into homeowners houses all day everyday. The stitching near the zipper has failed and while my zipper stays up the flap stays open which in turn looks like my flys down. If it weren't for this flaw they'd get 5 plus stars.

Best pant Ever 12/27/2017

With out a doubt the best hunting pant I own or have owned. Super warm when paired with Allegany bottoms and during the early season the preform great with the Benmore boxer brief. For sure will be adding a couple of these in solid colors for the everyday. I used these for white tale in the bow stand all season and a early season waterfowl.

Versatile and durable! 12/20/2017

I just wrapped up my last hunt of the year wearing these and have tested them from early season elk to late season deer in temperatures ranging from 90 to 20. These performed great. I think the greatest thing I can say about them is while I was slogging through deadfall I found my legs looking like I'd slogged through barbed wire and the pants look like they just came out of the package. Extremely durable, dare I say indestructible.

Awesome for anything 12/16/2017

I have cut timber, planted fields, caught limits of trout while kayaking, traveled through rock terrain in Colorado to my home swamps in Louisiana. These pants won't break! Great pockets, quiet, warm and easy to fit layers under with the stretch fit technology. Not only do they keep the mosquito population at bay they keep you dry during light rains. Awesome buy I have 3 pair - ASAT, Cipher and Fusion.

Pant holds up well, fit is not right for brush 12/12/2017

This pant is pretty bomb proof, and the material is great. They fit well (I'm 6'0" and 170 lbs, the medium talls are a perfect fit, I generally wear a 32x32 or 32x34) and the range of motion is great. I really like the side pocket design as well. Problem is, I bought these pants as a mountain/shed hunting pant, expecting them to be great for putting on miles through tough country, however due to the cut of the pant they cause an issue while hiking through brush. Since the cuff is relatively tight, if you walk through lots of snowberry/ninebark/ocean spray type brush that is common in north Idaho, the pants will begin to twist and wrap around your leg. Whenever I take them shed hunting I find that I am constantly stopping to twist the pant back around. Also I've read several reviews stating these pants are "quiet", they're not rain pant loud, but they're no fleece, on a quiet day if you were sneaking through any type of brush it would be tough to get into bow range.

Most comfortable pants ever but pilling badly 12/11/2017

Love the feel of these pants (buy a size down) I'm 5'10 195 pounds and the medium has plenty of room. Moves with you and feels like you are wearing nothing (in a good way). Hunted all day from 6:30 am to 5 pm in the rain and somehow stayed dry walking through thick northwest timber. However, the crotch is pulling very badly and I've only put on about 20 miles. I was thinking about getting a solid color for casual wear but the pilling has put an end to that.

Your only regret will be not buying them sooner 11/27/2017

I have owned several other brands of pants and none of them come close to touching the corrugates. These things are tough despite being incredibly light weight. I wore them 2 weeks of season this year and actually tried to abuse them walking through some nasty stuff. Not one hole or snag...still look like new. I was surprised by their ability to shed/resist snow and rain. No need for multiple pairs of pants, just these and a good base layer if temps are below 30 degrees.

Comfortable, Versatile, and Breathable 11/27/2017

Just like everyone else said, these pants are a breeze. They are more comfortable than any other hiking/hunting pants that I've worn. They worked great as an outer layer during the days with two aerowool layers underneath, but worked equally as comfortably as a layer underneath my overalls when I was stand hunting. Even after what would have amounted to a lot of sweat buildup during hiking, they kept my bottom half completely dry and un-swamped. These aren't going to cut it for a cold weather pant by themselves, but that's not what they are designed to be. However, just add a layer or two underneath and possibly one over the top and these pants can be part of anyone's system from summer hiking to winter ice fishing.

Great pant, buying more! 11/26/2017

Used these during the early bow season in CT. I walked several miles on a freak 80 degree day in October. These pants regulated heat so well I was very very impressed with performance. Have been using them now (late Nov.) through the rifle season and on a 30 degree morning (with a baselayer) was able to sit and be warm in soft comfort. The size is true and legs are roomy which I need, A+ for that!! Included suspenders are far superior to a competitor's model which I also have. The only thing I need to be conscious of is the tick situation where I live is BAD and they cling to wool very well, but probably no worse than cotton pants or jeans IMO. Only other thing is the Conifer color is much darker than advertised, but love the pants and buying more!

Nickname: JE
Unbelievable 11/25/2017

If I could give a 10 I would. These pants are so comfortable and versatile I hunted hard this year for whitetail and these pants still look great. I would recommend this to everyone looking for a good pair of hunting pants. Another great product from FL.

comfortable and versatile 11/19/2017

Most of our seasons are over here in Alaska and these pants have proven to be more than I hoped for. They have literally seen 80 and sunny on a deer hunt in Prince William sound to 35 and blowing in the Wrangell mountains for Dall sheep and they proved quiet enough to sneak in the old growth with moose. Being comfortable in the woods helps you stay longer and hunt harder. These pants are simply the best single article of clothing I own and I plan to buy a couple more pair as soon as my size is back in.

Nickname: JW
Used very hard 11/18/2017

I put these thru the ringer on a late season elk hunt in Oregon. After wearing them the whole season I am impressed. They were subjected to rocks, snow and rain daily. They wore a bit in the chaffing areas, but that was to be expected. When worn with merino wool base layers and an outer layer when needed, it proved to be a winning combo. They received a good dosing of elk blood, which washed out easily. I will be buying another pair in the future.

Great pant, more rugged than old Kanabs 11/15/2017

I loved the old Kanabs but they would quickly wear holes through the wool so I replaced them with the new Kanabs, and partway through this season they again have a pretty gaping hole in the crotch of the pant. The Corrugates seem a little louder, but feel much more robust and that they won’t have the wear issues. Time will tell, but so far I’m pleased with my change over.

Nickname: Cam
Awesome pant 11/13/2017

Roomy fit, maybe I should have ordered down a size but I liked the fit, paired with the suspenders from my Obsidians. Wore these hunting on cold and warmish October and November mornings and afternoons in Massachusetts. I was/am worried wearing these while chasing pheasants in the thick brush but so far they reveal only minor evidence of my abuse.

Tough pants 11/10/2017

I’ve put many miles on these pants and they’ve been super tough! They stretch and that’s one of my favorite qualities of these pants. The only downside is they aren’t as water resistant as I’d hoped they were, but other than that they’re my go too.

Comfortable 11/9/2017

Most Comfortable pant you will ever buy! 11/6/2017

Pros - Comfort is the best part of these pants no doubt most comfortable hunting pant I have ever owned. They stretch with you when bending, climbing, squatting, and hiking. I have them in 2 patterns and dry earth, I find myself wearing the dry earth ones as daily pants more and more often. They are also super light weight, and the zippered side pocket is handy.

Cons - I wish they included suspenders like they do for Kanab / Obsidian. I did have the crotch thread come unraveled however I was on a backcountry hunt so I sewed it myself instead of a warranty claim.

A strong buy - Better than I thought 11/3/2017

I was skeptical on the durability based on some reviews. I bought these after a weekend of thick upland game hunting up in Pittsburgh New Hampshire it was pouring rain and I was wearing a pair of mountain khaki field paints. They held up pushing through the brambles and briars chasing pointers, but my legs were junk as they got soaked with zero flex.

So I went looking for a pair of paints that had some real flex to them that would take a beating in the brush. I bought the Corrugated Guide Pant and put them to the test. I am 195 lbs 6 feet with a 35 waist in jeans. I was concerned the waist to length ratio. I went with the large and there is a bit of play in the waist but nothing a belt can't solve and the length is spot on though no break at the cuff. My first thought was these are going to ride up my boot as you hike or throw a leg over a log. They don't. That is the bonus of the stretch fabric. I put them through a test a few weeks ago following a blood trail and was amazed they weren't all snagged up from hours of pushing through the brush. For serious rose bushes, they offer no protection, but they didn't shred after a day long push through New England woods. I am happy enough that I will give the a try next year on the Fall woodcock / Grouse hunt.

awesome pants. 11/3/2017

Wore these mule deer and elk hunting, and put a lot of miles in the field, brush, blowdown and heavy timber with these on. Very versatile pants never binded up and felt great the whole time. Also going through the blowdown and heavy timber they took a beating without one hole or tear very impressed with these.

Durable, comfortable, and not too loud 10/30/2017

After 2 years of hard year round use, I feel i can finally review these. This has become my go to pant for scouts, shed hunts, and any type of activity that will be all day walking and moving. These pants have changed my comfort level and improved my endurance on all day adventures. When you are sage busting, and climbing over logs, they really come into their own. The tiny details really make the difference in these. Perfect cut, no crotch chafe or jamming up, and the cuffs are the absolute perfect diameter. They act like minor gaiters and stay over my boots without getting pushed up and allowing debris in duriing minor maneuvers. I use these for everything other than multi day hunts where i need to be silent and not smell horrid. For kill time, the wool pants come out.

Corrugated guide pants in pine color 10/29/2017

great for women 10/29/2017

I initially was looking at the women's pants offered, but was concerned about the pocket sizes. I bought this pair instead and they have been great so far. I have a 3 day hunt coming up soon, so I'll have plenty of time to test them. I am 5'4" and 160 lbs, and got the medium size in ASAT.

Great Pants! 10/26/2017

Previously I've worn the shit out of my 5.11 tactical pants. I decided to try the Corrugate Guide pants as an alternative because I heard how they stretch and move with your legs. As someone who works in a tactical capacity these pants fit the bill perfectly. They are tough, resilient and comfortable. I have no problem moving in them any way. I love these pants, they are well worth the money.

super comfy pants 10/23/2017

These pants are awesome! I want to wear them all the time. Work, play, hunting. I love the stretch fabric. I recently wore these on the plane while flying to and from Wyoming. Great travel pants. Also, wore them in the field where temps ranged from 15 F to 62F. They helped to cut the wind. Still need merino base layer of course.

own 5 pair....... 10/23/2017

So I own 5 pair of these most awesome pants....... 2 are pine, 1 pair is fusion and 2 pair are dry earth.. These pants fit and function great! range of movement is awesome. I only see 1 issue in the pant. They are thin, real thin. but this is not really an issue, because this is mitigated by layering, which when worn with a base layer like the allehgeny bottoms, ( I own 2 pair) they become much more than an early season pant. So far, I've been able to use these pants well into November & December in the south as well up in Illinois& Indiana....... great stuff... so my only real issue that I cant solve for in layering is durability... Just this weekend, my son shot his first buck and had to tramp thru broom sage, no worries, blow downs, , no worries... and the dreaded Briar patches of the worst Kind... I mean we are talking about his first deer here, so I'm all in.... The pants got trashed... knees to ankles, knees to hip...trashed. I know if I'd taken the time to put on the most excellent gators you sell, and I own, I would been covered on my shins, but not above the knees.. Anyway, Still 5 stars in my book ..I'm writing this review in hopes you will make a thicker 2 ply version of the pant.. I'll buy 5 more pair and not think twice about it.

Keep making the best product out there!

Not very durable 10/16/2017

I like the pant for all the right reasons. Problem is they ripped to shreds on the very first trip into the buck brush around the knee area.

So the description "armoured truck" doesn't make any sense at all.

They are light and fit well but at this price for something that is as durable as rice paper to me...not sure I would buy them again.

I have contacted first lite to see what they will do.

My recommendation would be to have double knees at least.

Great all around pants 10/13/2017

I’ve got a few whitetail hunts in these pants now and I am very impressed. I got a little nervous when I had to cut through a thicket filled with jaggers and burrs but the pants held up great. Super comfortable and they allow for a full range of movement. Comes in handy when climbing/hanging stands. I have not had to layer under these yet but I don’t see any problems when the time comes.

Versatile use 10/12/2017

Excellent pants in the solid brown color (dry earth). Great for outdoor pursuits and equally useful when traveling. Recently on a family trip I wore these pants while on the plane and through the airports. Stretchy and comfortable. Pockets easily accessible and secure. I feel like I found a new use for my favorite hiking/hunting pants. 5 stars for sure.

Comfortable and Versatile worth the $$$! 10/10/2017

I have loved these pants!!! Didn't know what to expect, I usually hunt in some light weight BDU style pants, but not anymore! These are the most comfortable pants I own by far! The first week I owned them I put them through their paces in Rocky Mountain National Park on several hikes ranging from strenuous to moderate. Even did some bush whacking where we could and was surprised at how flexible these pants are. I was most impressed with how well they shed water and how quickly the corrugate guide pants dried out, we had ranging weather from hiking in ice/snow/rain to beautiful sunshine days where we ventured to cross a couple of the rivers in the park. I can't wait to use them for deer season here in Texas, you ever know what kind of weather you will see during your hunt, can go from very hot to very cold in a matter of hours. I know using these pants I won't have to worry about my clothing choices!

Nickname: BR Shook
Worth the price tag 10/7/2017

If your like me you buy on a budget, and I was a little worried about spending the money these pants, but I must say, I will be buying another pair soon! Quiet, comfortable, and not to mention super stretchy, I'm talking sweat pants stretchy, on cool days paired with the Allegheny 330's is the perfect combo. KUIU and Sitka has nothing on First Lite's pants!

9 Days 10/5/2017

I recently spent 9 days in a backcountry wilderness unit wearing these pants everyday. They were just as comfortable on day 1 as they were on day 9 and their durability shined in that they came out looking unscathed. Silent material, flexibility to move and shoot in any position required, these pants are absolutely fantastic no matter what you'll encounter.

tough pants, impressive DWR 10/4/2017

Up until ordering these all the other FL pants I had were wool. Heard enough good things about these and decided I needed to give them a go. When I unpacked them my initial reaction was that the material was going to be noisy but once getting them in the field I definitely didn't notice anything bothersome. What's impressed me most about these pants is the DWR and ability to not get wet. Wore them in some showers and snow and the water always beaded up more like you'd expect on a waterproof layer. Spent a good amount of time glassing and kneeling on the wet or snowy ground always expecting my butt and knees to start feeling damp but they never did, that's not been my experience with other synthetics even the ones with fresh DWR coatings. I hear they dry fast but can't attest because they never held any moisture. Great functional pockets too!

Nickname: Graham
These are the Real Deal 10/4/2017

I purchased a pair of these back in August and have been wearing them everywhere. They have been ideal in the humid heat setting deer stands, making food plots, cutting trails, and working in the woods of Maryland's Eastern Shore. They are light but tough! I wore them during dove hunts in the sunflowers and was pleasantly comfortable. I love how they shed water and do not absorb any moisture. I am 5'10 185, and the larges fit great. The range of motion compared to canvas and jean pants is unreal! The current pair I have are in Dry Earth, but I will be picking some up another pair in Cypher or ASAT very soon. These are a homerun in my book.

Wish I could ware them every day 10/3/2017

When you pay this much for a pair of pants you only ware a couple of weeks a year you expect a lot, and once again First Lite has delivered. Magical is the best way to describe them. They are probably one of the most comfortable pair of pants I own (the other most comfortable pants are you guessed it First Lite). Perfect for tree stand hunting in the early season when it's wet. I bet First lite made Spider-Man's costume because these things will let you move up a tree and the breath. Now only if First Lite made jeans.

Most Versatile Layer you'll need! 10/2/2017

My absolute favorite about this is the hood and how soft it is. Complete silence when the hoods on and you're glassing for dear. So soft and warm that I used it for bedtime while sleeping in my hammock and woke up in 40 degree weather ready to go.

Very versatile 10/1/2017

Just got back from first cold and snowy high country mule deer trip of season and these pants did great. I'd worn on a couple early scouting trips in the heat and was happy how they performed. Cool deal to have a pant that is so comfortable in one extreme to the other. Love how they don't bind while climbing. The length is perfect for not riding up when glassing for long periods. Definitely recommend as the the go to if you are traveling light and living out of your pack.

Not very "armored truck" like at all 9/30/2017

Wore mine 2 times before the stitching that held the zipper to the nylon material of the pant completely failed. For a supposedly ultra rugged "armored tank" it's pretty underwhelming. Up to that how ever they are pretty awesome pant they didn't limit my range of motion at all. They are one of the few hunting pants that are actually comfortable to wear when "going commando".

Two thumbs up 9/29/2017

I am 6'1 240 and the XL fit perfect. In Levi jeans I am a 38-34. The guide pants fit extremely well in all places. Have not hunted in them yet so my October elk hunt will be the first test for these. Super impressed though, good job FL the puffy pants are next for me.

As a backcountry hunter and forestry worker, I put the Corrugate Guide pants through hell. When the description says "armoured truck" you can count on that.

Didnt want to take them off 9/22/2017

These are by far the most comfortable pants I have ever hunted in. I had some other pants I brought on my archery elk hunt this year but I found myself always going back to these.

If Only They Stayed Together 9/21/2017

I like the pants but my 3rd pair (2 warranty claims) has just failed. The inside of the pockets has come unsewn again. My theory is that front pocket design causes the sewing in the whole pocket/crotch area to pull apart. The saddest part is that I've only worn this latest pair to work...and I'm an accountant. I'm pretty shocked by the reviews posted for these pants. I've heard a lot of other guys on the internet talking about this issue.

comfortable, tough, quiet and smart pocket placement 9/20/2017

Elk archery hunting in Idaho. Extremely comfortable and they didn't stink after days of hunting. Zipper pockets on the outside of the cargo pockets allowed secure placement of small items. Quiet and 4 way stretch made hiking over deadfalls, timber and rocks a breeze. Quickly dried after several stream crossings. Would recommend to all outdoor enthusiasts. Also enjoy the shorts version for fishing and other leisure activities. Will need to get another pair in fusion, as these are in cipher.

Finally FL offers a long size. 6'1 195 and the LT were perfect. and plenty of room for thermals underneath. Wore them in 35-55 degrees and were great. Little warm and strenuous afternoon hikes but very comfortable and breath great. Best part is they don't ride on thighs when hiking.

Good pant 8/30/2017

I liked everything about these pants except for the fit. For me to get the pant length I needed I had to get a waist size that was too large for me. This caused them to be very loose in the crotch. Good pant I they just aren’t a good fit for me.

Best piece of camo i've ever owned. 8/25/2017

These pants are hands down the best outdoor, hunting, and daily wear pair of pants that I have ever purchased. The material is amazingly comfortable and breaths really well. When wet, it dries quickly. The pants stretch when going over obstacles or hiking uphill. When the pants snag on a twig or brush, they have a slight give which prevents tearing. In two years, I've yet to have any of my four pairs tear. I've heard complaints about these pants being considered noisy. I disagree due to never having this issue affect me on any of my archery hunting stocks. This is by far the best piece of clothing I have ever purchased. Firstlite hit a homerun on this pant.

Very impressed so far. 8/5/2017

I wore these pants out for the first time this morning and was very impressed with the function and comfort. I'm also extremely happy that these fit me! I'm 6'4' and a lot of my height is in the legs so you can imagine what's like buying ordinary pants, much less decent hunting pants. These pants run a little big - not too much, just a little - which is good for me because it allows me the length I need to keep them from pulling up over my boots when I sit down and the design works great for going up and over rough terrain without having to be afraid of ripping them. I admit I was skeptical about how these would hold up and granted I've only had them out once but I covered a lot of ground and did everything I could to see if they'll hold up, including a thorough inspection when I got home, but it's clear they're well made and are built to last. I hunt in rough country in southern Arizona so I'm really glad I found a pair of pants that work for me.
They are pretty thin so if you're hunting cold weather make sure to layer them otherwise these are a great single layer if the conditions are right for it.

Nickname: Dan
Did very well 8/3/2017

Took it on late July fall hunt, used it as my single only pant. Did very well for wicking moisture and drying quick. Only did 3 ascents with it on. By second ascent my back end started to pill significantly. Got my sheep with the third. Durability might be a long term issue.

You've been missing out 8/3/2017

These are absolutely my favorite pants of all time! I waited a year to write this review so I could provide honest feedback with a year of hunting as a test and these pants performed exceptionally. I found these pants to be great during all seasons as the material stretches really well, breathes, and are very quiet. I found them to be great for a multitude of environments, from stalking turkeys through the plains, to sitting in a stand in the hardwoods waiting for whitetail. The pockets on these pants are not the shallow pockets you would find on most pants and provide ample room to store items and keeps them secure. They weren't kidding when they said these are the armored truck of pants, they are durable!

Awesome pants 8/1/2017

These are all around great outdoor sport pants. There is a lot of stretch and I could see them being great for rock climbing. Light enough to wear in the summer.

Great hunting pant 7/31/2017

These are my favorite hunting pants. I use them for everything from warm summer scouting trips to mid winter hunting trips. For the colder weather I pair them with my Firstlite base layers or if it's extremely cold, I'll add my Sanctuary bibs over the top. Great all around pant.

Truly allows you to go father stay longer 7/18/2017

The first day I got the pants I put them on and didn't want to take them off. They have a bit of stretch to them almost like sweat pants! They are so comfortable and so cool. I tested them at Total Archery Challenge this weekend at Snowbird! They held up amazing and I never had range of motion issues with the pants which is huge for a hunter hunting steep terrain! I am in love with the pants and want to wear these as my everyday pants!

I've never had a more comfortable pair of hunting pant. They have the right amount of stretch in the fabric and still remain tough. Very versatile and make no noise.

Top Shelf. 7/2/2017

Wore these today scouting some public land here in Central Pa. The temperature was 86 degrees and these pants were surprisingly breathable and quiet. After multiple passes of multi floral rose, raspberry and other brush, these pants didn't show a sign of wear. I have these in dark earth because I wanted a scouting/causal outdoor pant. They will definitely get put through their paces this season in PA and NY. As always, overly thrilled with the products FL produces and never worry about parting ways with my money.

Extremely comfortable pants 6/18/2017

I received my Corrugate Guide pants a few days ago. They are very comfortable and easy to move in. I really like the large pockets. They are easy to get items in and out of. I often carry a range finder in my pocket and can easily remove it even with my release on. I was a little concerned these might be a bit warm for an early season hunt, even here in Alaska. After wearing them at work on a relatively warm day (for us) I was very impressed with how cool i stayed in them. I am excited to use them this fall when our weather can go from sunny and 70 to below freezing and snowing in a few hours.

Best all around pants I've every purchased. 6/8/2017

I bought 2 pair of these (fusion for hunting and dry earth for scouting). They quickly replaced my sitka pants as my favorite hunting pants I've ever owned. The dry earth are my go to "travel pants", I spend a ton of time on an airplane for work, sometimes 20 hours in the air to other countries, best travel pants you could ever purchase. They're light, comfortable, breath well, and layer easy when using them for later season hunts. Impressed with how quickly they dry as well. Incredible gear.

Favorite piece of First Lite so far! 6/2/2017

I recently used the corrugate guide pant in recent hunt in South Africa. These pants keep me warm in the early hours and cool during the peak heat periods of the day. The new cipher pattern blended in extremely well with the South African bush surroundings. These pants are also fairly quite. South Africa has very dense bush areas and snagging pants are almost always an issue. So much so that South Africans only hunt in shorts. These pants seemed to silently move through the bush with little to no noise.

Excellent Pants 5/8/2017

The Corrugate Guide Pants are excellent. After a few washes they are deadly quiet and very durable. On my last hunt while wearing them I slipped on a wet rock and slide a good 20 feet on my butt down a rocky mountain. Not the most comfortable experience as far as rocks in my ass but the pants show zero evidence of my callous mistake. I was thoroughly impressed!

Great Early-Mid Season Pant! 5/6/2017

These pants are extremely comfortable. If you're a pajama person I'd bet you could wear these to bed without a single complaint. As an early to mid season pant these are a great choice, much past that a good base layer will definitely be needed. The pockets are deep and extremely functional they provide good space for items such as rangefinders. They also have dual thigh pockets on each side. My only complaint is that the thigh pocket with the zippers are too small for my large hands to fit into. Not a big deal, but worth noting. The elastic waistband stretches for a very relaxed feel. When you first put them on they don't ssem very durable, but after wearing them many time in rough conditions it's safe to say they're a lot tougher than you'd think. These pants seem to run a little big, I have a 35" waist and they fit a little loose. I tried on a medium and the thighs were too tight, but fit well in length and waist. All in all these are great pants, I'd definitely recommend them!

Most comfortable pant I own 5/1/2017

I wear size 36 pants and I got these in size XL the only thing I dont like about them is they are on the bigger end for me. I should have gone with the Large pant not the XL. They fit fine but for hiking around I will just have to wear a belt (planned on it anyway). They are light weight and super comfortable. I wish they had a back left pocket because thats where I stash my wallet but on these pants I have to stash them in the right pocket oh well. I have gone on a few hikes in the off season and love the way the pant wears. I will be purchasing more of these in the future.

Favorite Pants for Everything 4/18/2017

I've had pants from Columbia, REI, prana, Uncle Sam, and various other manufacturers and I can say that without a doubt these are my absolute favorite. They're durable, they hold up to the weather, they dry quickly, and they're comfortable. With a pair of Allegheny 230s they're comfortable hiking around down into single digits with below zero wind chills. They keep me dry in light rain and they keep me comfortable during Spring turkey season and warm weather, too. The pockets are perfect because I can stash some small items like gloves and a beanie, but I can't overstuff them with a bunch of crap that I should have put in my pack anyways.

In the event of the Apocalypse, I'm grabbing my wife and child, a firearm, and these pants to get me through the end of days.

Awesome Pants 4/15/2017

I bought these in a large since I'm on the border of medium tall and large. Had to return them for a pair in MT becaise they are slightly stretchy and customer service was incredible. These pants are insanely comfortable and seem to be very durable. I've been out in the dense PA woods about 5 times now in them and they're holding up great. Now I just need to buy a pair in a solid color so I can wear them outside of just hunting.

Love this pant 4/13/2017

I have two seasons in the field with these pants and I love the fit and comfort! The 4 way stretch and light weight make them great for active hunters. They are great for early season and layered with the Allegheny, I have never needed anything warmer than this combo through late season. I do have two complaints...there are quieter nylon pants out there and mine are starting to pill despite always washing them on the delicate cycle with Nikwax Tech Wash. I'm not sure why they are doing that but it drives me crazy, hence only 4 stars.

Poor Fit 4/5/2017

The feel of these is great and they are light weight and stretchy. But I have come to feel I don't like the fit of First Lite Clothes. These pants for me are too baggy in the thigh and butt and then they taper off as you go down to look like "skinny jeans". I realize this is probably to accommodate wearing gators, but I just like the fit of Kuiu clothing a lot better.

Best hunting pants I've ever owned 3/29/2017

I've worn KUIU Attack pants for years and recently ordered the First Lite Guide Pant. These are now my go to pants as they're the most comfortable I've ever worn! I can't adequately describe how great the stretch and feel of these pants is. They fit well but with the freedom you need while hunting or stalking. I got caught out in a pretty good rain storm this past weekend while turkey hunting and they handled it well and dried quickly. I love the pocket setup, very useful and practical. The Fusion camo looks fantastic and blends well where I hunt. I've had 2 people stop me and ask about the pattern. I plan on ordering another pair for my Alaska caribou hunt and a pair in Dry Earth to kick around in and at camp.

Great for the heat of the desert 3/21/2017

I absolutely find the cipher camo pattern a must when hunting southern Arizona coues deer. This species of whitetale are very challenging to harvest but when I use my cipher corrugate pants I dont have to worry about them seeing me or hearing me, these pants are super quite and flexible. Great job firstlite cant wait to rey more of your gear on my next hunt.

Great performing and designed pant 3/20/2017

After at least trying on almost every high-end hunting pant out there, these took the cake. That includes hunting in Kryptek, ordering another brand then returning due to ill fit, and driving to NORCAL to try out another brand, design and primarily fit brought me to the FL Guides. The best features are everything I was looking for: (did I mention fit?) pocket layout and design is spot on, snug leg cuffs all but eliminate the need for gaiters (as an early season archery only hunter,) and the DWR finish is awesome. As is normal, I got myself into scorching hot days to windy on/off drizzle and a little storm that had rain coming from directions that defy physics. This combined with the cirrus jacket kept me perfectly dry - I was actually kind of shocked.

Cons? Yeah, they're not silent especially brand new. I even talked myself into thinking they were too loud - until I bagged by first bull this year from about 17 yards. So much for being too noisy. The only complaint is that after about 3 days from brand new some of the stitching in the fly just started to unravel. But the lady friend is handy and fixed that. Everywhere that took a beating from use still looks new. I'm a believer in these!

Amazing everyday pants 3/19/2017

Bought these pants in First Lite Fusion for my Montana '16 elk season. It was an 8 day hunt and I wore them every day! They are lightweight weight and easy to layer with. I was able to comfortably put overalls on during the early morning when I needed the extra insulation. Highly water resistant and highly wind resistant. trust me, there was plenty of 30mph winds to test them adequately! Oh and they never starter to smell! Even after 8 days! I was able to put a small hole in them when crossing a barb wire fence but up to that point they withstood all the crouching, kneeling, and crawling through brush that I threw at 'em. I have no complaints about quality or thoughts for improvements, honestly. However, it would be awesome to have more color options because I definitely want a pair that I can wear out everyday.

Comfort: A+ Fit: B- 3/17/2017

These are the most comfortable pants I have ever worn- combine that with how durable they are, and you have a near perfect combination for the active hunter.

My only minor complaint would be that the sizing is a touch off compared to their other products. I prefer a more tapered fit, for example the Kanab 2.0 fit me perfectly in the MT size and these were considerably longer and a little bit baggy in the leg (in the same size). Regardless, they are amazing pants and they're a must-have for any active hunter. If the cut is perfected, there's no reason to buy any other hunting pants.

Best investment you will ever make 3/17/2017

If you are a hunter, hiker, fisherman, or outdoor junky and you haven't worn the Corrugate Guide Pant you are missing out. This pant moves with you unlike any other in its class. Forget the days of climbing over logs and around obstacles with restricted pant legs, or a blown out crotch. Range of motion is entirely uninhibited. Early season archery to late season in the snow, these pants are my go to. I can not think of a piece of gear I own that I would rank above these pants. If you are looking for a new favorite pant give these a walk in the woods and you will never look back.

Guide pant more like anything and everything pant 3/17/2017

Let me just say first lite has my business, great company, great spokespeople and all around just a company you can tell has there priorities straight. I bought these pants about a year ago and I predator, upland bird, elk, deer, antelope hunt and really anything else in these pants, you get what you pay for and in my opinion you get great product's when you buy first lite I have a number of other FL products and they haven't failed me yet I bought a pair of the red desert boxers and they were just a little big I still wear them even after purchasing the correct size because they flat out work, my point is FL has something special going on, they get it, they understand what hunters and anglers and anybody that spends time outdoors needs. I'm an honest guy I'll tell you when you something doesn't work and until that time comes I'll stand behind FL and there products and even then I'll express my views and I know the company will make it better that's why I'm a FL customer for life.

These Pants are Perfect 3/14/2017

If you are bow hunting in Nevada in August or elk hunting in Idaho in December these are the do-it-all hunting pants you want. They are thick enough to not get torn climbing over wind blown trees, but thin enough you wont sweat to death hunting in the desert during the summer. They aren't water proof, but are for sure water resistant. Oh and these pants stretch. It is unbelievable. You will not lack mobility climbing over logs or onto rocks. They will not hang up when you sit down to glass. These are my new go to pants for hunting or fishing year around.

Favorite Pants 12/16/2016

I have had the opportunity to use these pants in two totally different types of hunting situations. The first time I used these pants, was during a 7 day spot and stalk hunting trip in the early archery season. I loved the breathability of the pants and was comfortable in low 40 degree temps through mid 70's. I also used these pants later in the year, while hunting from a climbing stand. The stretch material allowed for a freedom of movement that I never had before in a hunting pant and really helped when climbing up and down the tree. I also love the Fusion camo pattern. These are my go to pair of pants and will be purchasing another pair ASAP.

Passed the ULTIMATE test... 12/9/2016

I put these pants to the ULTIMATE test this year by wearing them for the Iowa Shotgun season. For those that don't know, pants can take a BEATING during this season. Most of the rips I get in my pants come from this season, and come from sticks/branches/multi flora rose/thorn bushes/barbwire.....and these things held up to it all. Besides the small strands that were pulled from the thorns (but are easily burnt back down to nothing), nothing beat these pants up. I paired them with some Alleghany Bottoms and stayed warm in 25 - 45 degree temps. I have just one request for a potential change to the pants.....and that's to use the same material that is on the gaitors, from the bottom of the pant leg to below the knee, to possibly help with the wear and tear in the area that see the most beating.

I will never wear blue jeans again! 12/8/2016

These pants are amazing, some complaints of them being noisy but after washing them a few times they have quieted down. The fit and feel are amazing most comfortable pants I have ever worn. I recently wore them in 20 degree weather on a spot and stalk mule deer hunt in Western Nebraska and they worked perfectly. I was never too hot or too cold in them I wore a pair of Polar Tech silk weight for a base layer and the Guides over top. One day it was in the teens and the wind was blowing at 20 plus MPH and my legs were warm both days with just that. They cut the wind well and kept me just right as far as hot and cold goes.
My only complaints are the material the pockets are made out of isn't too durable I've developed a small tear towards the top of the upper hand pockets and I would love to see two back pockets or options. I'm kind of a weirdo I'm right eye dominant and left handed so I prefer my wallet in my left back pocket but I can live with the lack of that for how amazing these pants are!

Nice Pants 12/2/2016

The material on these pants are great. Highly breathable. I only wish I had went with a medium tall instead of the large tall. I wear a 34x34 for jeans and these are a little lose around the waist, need to wear a belt with. The pants do have wuite a bit of stretch around the waist, so if you are befween sizes I would recommend sizing down. The length on these pants are great and they are pretty quiet. Hopefully they'll hold up well.

While they don't rank IMO with my all time favorite Kanabs these pants have certainly earned their place in my gear room.

Versatile! 11/22/2016

This weekend did three different hunts, twice in a stand for bucktail for 7 hours straight and once still hunting for muleys. It was cold (-3c or so) in the stand and they kept me warm and cozy with a merino baselayer and 0 degree bag over top. No sweating, just the right temp. When still hunting they were quiet, they didnt get ripped up when walking through brush, they kept me warm and dry and they were extremely breathable.

I love these pants, they are going to work for me all year.

On the sizing, im 6'0, 33 inch waist 34 inseam and the large works absolutely perfect. I suspect with a med/tall I'd be ok too but would not leave much room for layering underneath when needed.

Super happy. Can't wait to put them on again.

Summer scouting, travel, horseback, training hikes, antelope hunting, elk hunting, mule deer hunting...just a few ways I've used the Corrugate Duraflex Guide Pants this season.

These fit and function like a dream. They flex in all the right places, enabling you to be agile and mobile working your way through the terrain.

I would suggest two pairs, one camo and another in plain brown that you will want to wear everyday.

Outstanding Illinois White Tail hunting Pant 10/17/2016

I received my Corrugated Pants just in time for one of my White Tail hunts. These pants are Ultra lightweight, thin stretchy material. These are extremely comfortable no matter what I'm doing while hunting. Whether I was climbing tree stands, crawling through buck brush or just hiking, they are very quiet while walking/ bow hunting in IL. I have been looking for hunting clothes that will work in any environment, weather I'm hunting Midwest, Rocky Mountains, or Alaska. I don't want to be buying different camo for each environment. I want to buy one or two and that's it.

First Lite has became my favorite camo for hunting. I will also be looking at having a couple more pairs to ware on a daily biases.

I wore gaiters when it was raining and snowing also and I have never been so comfortable in bad weather. When you stay dry you stay warm. Feet and legs were dry even in a all day rain 1 day and all day snowstorm and 30+ mph wids the next day. Awesome pants

BEST PANTS ON THE MARKET!!!!!!!! 10/5/2016

These pants perform on another level! I got these pants in early August and waited to do a review on them until after my OTC deer hunt here in AZ and my OTC elk hunt in Colorado so I got a variety of use out of them.

All in all these pants are my new favorite and I wont look back at another set. I sold my Kuiu tiburons and chinooks as well as my Sitka mountain pants because I liked them so much and I am going to be getting another 2 pairs!

They have great stretch and breath on another level and and dry extremely fast!

The only downfall I would say about the pants is that when you put a belt on them and tighten the belt it rides up a bit and the belt comes in contact with your boxers or skin and find myself trying to pull the band of the pants over it to make it a little more comfortable. Also the material beading up in the crotch area possibly from your thighs rubbing together.

With that said if you're in the market for a great hunting pant or ones to just wear around town(solids) these are the best pants I've worn and will be buying several more pairs!

Thank you,
TJ

Most comfortable hunting pant 10/2/2016

Just returned from a weeklong hike-in elk hunt in Colorado. These have to be the most comfortable hunting pants I have ever worn. I was a bit apprehensive about the narrow cuff but in practice they fit around my boots almost like a gaitor and the stretchy pant doesn't allow them to ride up over my hiking boots.

We're going to Israel in February and I plan on having at least one more pair by then.

The only CON I can find with ththe pant is the lack of a left hip pocket. I mean, would it kill them to have two back pockets like any other normal pant?

Comfort and Flexibility 9/8/2016

Guys... these pants... pretty damn good. When worn appropriately, I don't think there is a better option. Great flexibility, breathability, and wear resistance. The DWR finish works well, and is better than all others I've tried. The swishy noise that you get with nylon will mostly wear away after a few uses and washes. Best temperature range is between HOT and about 45 degrees. If you are tree stand hunting, a base layer is recommended under 50 degrees.
The fusion pattern blows me away.... I've walked up on numerous small and big game animals to withing 20 yards. If footsteps made no noise, I'm sure I could pet a deer with this pattern. Haven't found any cons when using this pant for its intended activities.

2 yr tested 8/10/2016

Two best pieces of kit I own are First Lite Fusion and one of them is the Corrugate Guide Pant. (the other is the Chama Hoody)

Pros: Durable - while they are not as thick as Duck material and you will feel some briars they have not had issues getting caught nor torn. Still, I wouldn't expect them to be blackberry or thorn proof.
Water resistant - I've been in some pretty good squalls hunting turkey and deer without worrying about getting drenched and they dry fast too. That said they are NOT a rain pant - dress accordingly.
Temperature Range - Good down to about 40-45 degrees for me but I run hot. If you get cold you'd certainly want a solid base layer.
Material/design - Stretchy! really works with going up over and around anything! The knee of the pant is well made and the side zipper pockets are easy to use with one hand. Good designing! Blood/mud has washed out easily as well
Camo - Fusion Pattern I just can't think of anything better. Even pics of me on trail cam (wish I could attach them) the fusion is so well blended to multiple environments.

Cons: A bit thin material - if you buy this pant it is not a heavy cold weather pant. Just be aware. Buy the stormtight if you need that.
Sizing - this was recently addressed in the 2016 line but previously there was no long inseam! So I had to buy Large pants. They are far too loose and still slightly too short - I may have to buy new ones and try to sell the original pair because of that and that's a bit frustrating. If you have a long inseam use the sizing chart to see regular sizes and note if you may need tall version. Further, they don't list the Tall sizing in the sizing chart.
Design: Internal belt system like higher end pant would be nice.

Conclusions: Great light weight hiking/early season hunting pant that with layering can still give you support in later season hunts. Be sure to layer appropriately and note that they are not a rain/snow pant. Stretchy material and fabric allow for Full Range of Motion. A worthwhile part of anyone's kit. Be sure of your sizing and hunting environment needs.

Awesome Pants 8/9/2016

The Corrugate Guide Pants are the perfect hunting pant for year round use. Lightweight, stretch fabric breathes well, sheds light rain and morning dew, and resists tears during wire fence crossings or hikes through thick nasty brush. In 80+ degree weather they are cool and paired with mid or heavy weight bottoms they handle cold weather well too. I have the Kanab 2.0s as well and it really is almost a coin toss as to which pant I like more.

Nickname: Chris
Excellent, nothing else to say 8/9/2016

I have only had the chance to wear these pants on two scouting trips so far. Both of which were in AZ in August which translates to really hot humid weather. We beat the bush hard and hiked a ton with absolute comfort wearing these pants. They were bomb proof. I even fell on a barbed fence with no tears to the pants at all. They were a bit warm for the weather but in my opinion there is no pant that would feel cool with that much hiking and hot weather. Comfort level was through the roof, they were absolutely bombproof, and they look fantastic if that matters. I highly recommend these to anyone that is looking for a new hunting pant.

The only downfall the pant that i saw and it could be just me was that as the day and myself warmed up the fit around the waist expanded and i was in deep need of a belt, my pants kept sagging down from the weight of my pack. A low profile belt would have fixed that instantly but i usually try not to hunt with a belt.

Guide pant 8/7/2016

Bought one pair in Forest as a hiking/ camping /shed hunting pant to save my camo for fall. I like them and so does the wife so I bought 2 more pair in solid color.
Love the soft shell stretch and now am wearing them to ride horse back. These are a great out door pant and she told me to wear them the last time she invited a couple for dinner. Wife approved.

Ninja quiet 8/6/2016

I have used the Corrugated pants on several hunts now. A bit last year in rifle, some bow and most recently in open hand whitetail season. Great blend of form and function and perfect for the type of hunting I do. Man these are quiet pants! I put a stalk on a nice velvet six point. Brought him down with a double leg from 2 yards and finished with a rear naked choke. Dropped the people's elbow on a doe just this past Thursday from a tree stand. She never even knew I was there until I was standing over her doing the eyebrow thing. I am looking forward to using them later this month during Montana's new Snuka season. No pant gives me the combination of durability and flexibility I need to perform complex and sometimes ariel maneuvers while being quiet enough to get in close for unarmed hunting. Top notch stuff. Buy with confidence. Do you smell me now!

You'll want another pair. 8/5/2016

These are some of the most comfortable, yet durable pants I have ever owned. They are as comfortable as sweatpants, but are resistant like denim. When walking fields for pheasants in the early season, they are breathable and stretch easily to make some longer days more manageable. They allow you to walk restriction free through tall CRP and downed grasses. IF these ever wear out, I will be purchasing another pair.

Finally some durable hunting pants 7/31/2016

After tearing up some $150 hunting pants made by another company I began a search for a pant that could hold up to the brush I'm accustomed to encountering in Oregon. These pants fit the bil they are so awesome! They are durable and light. Don't listen to others when they say they are noisy. You don't hear them at all once you break them in.

Good to go 7/30/2016

I've had these pants now for just over a year and wear them at least 3 times a week doing all sorts of activities. These pants have performed flawlessly. They are starting to pile after washing just a little but after so much wear I can deal with that They are a slightly larger fit with heaps of room in all the right places.
The only addition I'd like to see is an internal belt system to take them in a bit.

Best Pants I own 7/23/2016

These pants are legit. Super light weight and comfy. Almost feels like sweat pants. They are a super light weight, but the material doesn't feel like it will rip if caught on brush. I really like the DWR finish. They survived a mountain house spill straight to the lap. It all just wiped off leaving nothing behind. They were noisy right out the box, but after walking for a while the noise was gone. These pants are bomb proof and I will be getting an extra pair.

Pretty Darn Good Pants 7/22/2016

I ordered my Large Corrugate Pants (I am 6'3" 215 34.5" waist and they are a touch loose in the waist) before my Dall sheep hunt last year and I was excited to try them out. After 12 days straight in the field for that hunt and about 30 days of random scouting and bear hunting trips since then I can say this.
Pros:
Lightweight
They dry extremely quickly.
Super comfortable
Pockets... Seriously, a ton of pockets and deep too which allowed me to keep my pack on and have quick access to gps, range finder, sawyer water filter, phone skope, and snacks I would be eating throughout the day.
After 12 days straight of wear in hot, cold, wet, and dry they didn't seem to be stretched out at all.

Con:
Some of the high wear points could use some double stitching at least at the end of the seam. Day 7 of my sheep hunt the seem that holds the zipper flap down busted and while it doesn't affect the functionality of the pants at all it does seem like foreshadowing of things to come.

Buy two pair, you'll love them. 7/21/2016

I bought these pants fall of last year after I saw my Kanabs were showing some wear. I didn't know how I would like the "skinny Jean" fit so I was a bit reluctant.

First I used them as layering under my ice fishing/winter shell pants. I immediately purchased another pair in dry earth color. The first thing I noticed was how the legs fit into my winter rubber boots and didn't bunch up or rub. I wore them off and on all winter as a layering item. They breathed well when things got too hot and also provided the right amount of extra insulation under my shell pants, as well as a place to pocket some gear.

I wore them on spring time scouting and fishing trips, shed hunts, and hanging trail cameras.

I used them turkey/hog hunting in early April in Texas. On this hunt one of the first things I noticed was that I really liked the pocket layout. I could run and gun all day and my main calls were always at my disposal. I could easily separate mouth, slate, shaker, and my small box calls so that nothing rattled. The other thing I really liked was with the tapered legs the pants hardly ever caught on the Texas hill country brush. It was hot that week in Texas and the pants breathed very well.

I hunted turkeys in Minnesota also this year and layered these pants up with the allegheny's and waited out a gobbler in frosty wet grass on my knees and was comfortable until I was able to send an arrow his way.

Just this week I was in the BWCA in Minnesota and wore the pants paddling and portaging camping and fishing. They were great. Durability is second to none. It seems when fabric is wet all day from traveling by canoe it my get "tired" (for lack of a better term) then tear, or rot from being wet all the time. These pants held up amazingly well. They dried out very quickly, and shed most of the water out of them before entry in to the canoe. Back when I was guiding canoers I wish I had them.

So far I have worn these pants hunting and hiking and working in all kinds of different conditions snow, rain, wind, mud, humidity, heat, you name it. They haven't let me down. I've beat them up and roughed them up. Now even when I have yard work to do or chores on the farm to get done I'm sliding into these pants first. I'll be wearing them during whitetail season and as a mid layer pant when it gets colder. Then they'll go along ice fishing and winter camping. The cycle will start over. They've seen hard use since last fall and the only thing to happen to them is the iron on labels have worn off, but I don't mind, I've already put them to the test.

Best camo I have ever owned! 7/17/2016

I ordered these pants about a week ago and was able to finally get them in the woods today. I went scouting here in Tillamook Forest in Oregon, to say they work is an understatement. While scouting I saw a doe about 60yards out. I creep in without heavy cover to test my self. She could hear my steps and would look around but never focused on me. I hit to where I knew I had shot with the bow and pulled out the range finder......29 yards! She never stopped feeding on the cloves. These pants are quite and felt great. Fusion is the best camo I have ever owned.

Comfortable but not breathable 7/11/2016

These pants are very comfortable... almost like wearing sweat pants. The stretch of the material and the fit are both great! The pocket design is awesomeas well... I love having a zipper cargo pocket to secure important things as well as an open pocket for quick access to the things you need frequently. The hip pockets are deep so nothing falls out.

The downside is the breathability... You are going to sweat no matter what when hiking with 50+ pounds on your back in 70+ degree heat, but I feel like these kept the sweat in more than the Kanab's.

Haven't worn them enough to comment on the durability and if they stink after a few days of hunting.

Felt like a dream 7/8/2016

Everything I read and watched about these pants gave a green flag. My brother even had the chance to try them on before I received them, and he told me how great they felt. I thought he was just over exaggerating.

I couldn't have been more wrong. They were more comfortable than any pair of pajama pants or sweats I have every tried. Lets just say they they are the most comfortable pair of leg wear I have ever owned.

I immediately went and grabbed a bottle of water to test how water resistant they were. I dumped the whole bottle out on my legs and nothing stuck or soaked in. I was amazed.

I then started to squat and bend and walk and move. I even tried the duck walk in them. No resistance at all.

The next night I decided to put them to the ultimate test. I throw them on and headed out into the pouring rain. I climbed a near vertical hill that was full of tall soaking wet grass, shrubbery, and short trees. It was thick with vegetation. I actually sat on the wet grass at the top of the hill long enough for me to catch my breath (4 or 5 minutes) I then finished my little journey with out any restriction in any direction of movement, and headed back to the house.

Now that I was back in the lights, I noticed that the pants were covered in water (not soaked, and not wet) just covered. I had water droplets everywere. I was surprised that the water had not soaked in at all. I was even able to just jump while stoping my feet down and 90% of the water fell right off onto the floor. I then managed to wipe away the rest of the droplets with my hands. I quickly ran inside to dry my hands and face so I could feel how dry they really were. Bone dry.

If you consider these pants and then decide on something else, then you are certifiable insane.

I'll never buy another pair of hiking/hunting pants again unless they stop making these.

Game Changer 7/7/2016

When I found out that First Lite was going to be making nylon pant, I was so excited! Down here in AZ we have this gnarly vegetation called Catclaw. That stuff is notorious for tearing up pants and all clothing for that matter. The corrugates not only held up great through the stuff, but maintained comfort without gaining any pulls whatsoever. These are a great addition to the lineup and I would recommend them to anyone. Kudos First Lite!

Tall size fits great! 6/28/2016

Just bought the corrugate size LT and these are hands down the best fitting synthetic pants I've ever owed. I'm 6'5", 210lbs and have had trouble finding pants that don't fit weird. First lite nailed it with these. The inseam of the pants came out to 34 long. I usually wear a 38 waist and the large size fits even though they say it's a 34-36. They're definitely pricey but being tall I'm used to having to pay more for something that actually fits.

Belongs in the Woods 5/20/2016

I purchased these pants, as well as some other First Lite items, in October 2015 to use in the upcoming rifle season in NY. I am 6'2" 230lbs with a 34-36" waist depending on the pant style and brand. I generally wear a more loose/relaxed fit pant, due to the fact that I have tree trunks as legs. I was a bit concerned with what size to order so I called the customer service line and spoke to Casey I believe. He was really helpful in determining what to order and I ultimately went with these in XL, thinking that I would layer underneath in the cold months, and during the early season the little bit of extra in the waist can be managed with either a belt or a pair of suspenders. I am really glad I sized up slightly because these pants do have a more athletic fit to them, so the extra size allowed me to move comfortably in the hills. The nylon stretch, breathability, and DWR coating all combine to make this the one pair of pants to have on any outdoor excursion. The fabric is also very durable. There are a lot of briars in the area I hunt, so it is nice to have a pant that will stand up to some abuse. Busting brush and through the thick stuff never phased these. I would highly recommend these pants to anyone who is looking to find a great piece that belongs in the woods as much as we do!

terrific 5/16/2016

Just got my pants a couple weeks ago and have worn them quite a bit! Worn them to work, around town, and in the hills. We have had a ton of moisture lately and these pants have held up to everything so far, feel awesome, and look awesome. I find myself putting these on first thing Saturday morning and wearing them around the house like a pajama pant:) I agree they are a little noisy but not bad and noise might dampen a bit as they get broken in.

I've worn the guide pant everyday out shed hunting. Very comfy and easy to Layer underneath to keep warm or shed to cool off. I'd say it's comfortable from 75 degrees to 20 degrees with warm long jons. Or I'd go to the kenab pant for cooler weather. I'm gonna really test these pants this fall. I've ordered another pair for elk and bear hunting. I'll also test it in the stand during our whitetail bow season.

Best Pant on the market! 5/14/2016

If your looking for a great all around pant for hunting look no further. For those days when it is below zero in the morning and 50 deg in the sun around lunchtime , these pants have you covered. Best features are the fabric itself, it is pretty water resistant and has amazing fit and stretch in all the right places. While quartering an elk you kneel down alot and they held up in the snow I wasn't wet. The suspender loops are also pretty cool, If i could add anything it would be a button to fold up the pants like they have on the kanab. Overall, of all the pants i own for hunting I will be wearing these next fall come opening morning.

These pants really are bombproof plus not too hot in late august but plenty warm even on the coldest days, they are are my favorite piece of clothing after 1 season.

Comfort and Function 5/12/2016

When I first tried these pants on for the first time I knew they would be different. But it wasn't until I had them on on the field when I realized how comfortable they were. The stretch nylon has no resistance when extending your knees. The breathable fabric makes you question what has taken the industry to come up with this! These are great pants that will be my go to pants for a very long time.

My go to pants 5/12/2016

Ive used a few other brands light weight pants which have been good to marginal. I decided to try the corrugate and was really surprised. These pants are ultra light weight, breathable and very comfortable. I have been using them in warm weather in Hawaii where I am hiking across lava fields through rainforests and alpine forests. I even use them for work because of their comfort and flexibility. They have held up very well after use in thick forest and bushes, brambles and long elephant grass. The pockets were a little different to what I was used to but have become a favorite configuration for me now.

Outstanding Pant 4/20/2016

I can't say enough great things about this pant. They are as tough as nails, yet have just enough stretch to make them the most comfortable pants I own (even compared to non-hunting pants). They are the perfect weight/thickness, too. I wear them in the Texas hill country, which can temperature swings from the 80s to the 20s in a day and these pants are ready for it all. The fabric is sufficiently quiet for bow hunting. The pockets are perfectly placed, too. The fusion camo is a superior pattern, as well. Just ditched my kuiu gear for a complete kit in fusion this year and never looked back!

New favorite outerwear 4/15/2016

I bought these pants after I was having issues with my Kanab's tearing in the thick Pacific Northwest brush. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my Kanab's, you just have to be a bit more careful in our Western Washington environment.

I was a little suspicious on how durable this nylon would be, but after receiving them- I knew even before I had a chance to take them out in the field that these were the ultimate answer. The nylon is super durable, thick, and forgiving. It is not what you would come to think of when you think of nylon. These pants were the answer I have been looking for. As another reviewer put, I would buy these over and over again. They are my new favorite pants for when I hit the field. I'm 6'0, 210 lbs., wear a 34 waist and the larges fit absolutely perfectly.

You won't be disappointed with this piece.

Great early season or high activity pant 4/8/2016

One of my favorite pants. Breathes Great, fit is spot on, dries fast. I like the contoured/tapered fit in the calves as it fits snug around calves and boots but allows plenty of room for motion in the seat and thigh, even for us guys with bigger behinds and thicker thighs. I ordered a medium and I usually where size 31"-33" waist and 30" inseam and these fit perfect.

I used these last hunting season with the fusion camo and they worked really well with the first lite base layers. They hold up well in brush and are really comfortable. They can be a tiny bit noisy if you are trying to scout/spot, like carly said. I really want these in dry earth but I wish they came in black too.

I thought my kanab 2.0 pants were my go to pant, well the corrugate guide pant may be my new go to pant. These offer great stretching material so you'll feel a snag before they rip.

Best All-Around Pant 10/26/2015

After 20-25 days of mostly backpack hunting in Idaho in Montana, these pants show essentially zero wear. They are remarkably comfortable due to the amazing stretch fabric. Yet, compared to other pants I own (Sitka Ascent, Kuhl Renegage) the Corrugate Guide do not become stretched out after getting wet or several days of use. Speaking of wet, the Corrugate Guide easily outperforms the Sitka when it comes to DWR. It takes way longer for water to eventually soak through the Corrugates. Drying time on on the Corrugates is fantastic. I am a big fan of the pockets on these pants. There are 3 pockets on each leg. The traditional hand pockets are deer and lines with a very nice feeling fabric. On each leg there are 2 cargo pockets, one zippered and one with a flap. Perfect.

Their are just a few things that were less than perfect. I personally do not like the big metal button that First Lite puts on these pants at the waist. I had an alterations shop replace it with a flat plastic button for $5. Another note, I am 6'3" and 185lbs. The perfect pant size for me is a 33'x35". To get the right size waist (33"), I had to order the Medium pants, which are then fairly short for a someone with a 35" inseam. I had the pants altered to 'let out the hem' to buy me about 1" of additional inseam. Not a design flaw, just something to keep in mind if you have long legs and a relatively small waist.

The real icing on the cake is that my wife actually gives me 2 big thumbs up on these pants from a fashion standpoint. I have the Pine color (in addition to Fusion) and I regularly wear them out to dinner and almost any social engagement.

Long story short, after wearing the pants once, I reached for the Corrugate Guide on EVERY backpacking and hunting trip I went on this year and left my other hunting pants at home.

Oh, and they are plenty quite for bow hunting. At lease according to the 2 elk I shot this year while wearing them.

Out of the Box/Initial Thought: Great Pant 6/25/2015

I just received my Corrugate Pants and I have been walking around in them for a number of hours getting a feel for them and figuring out its strengths and weaknesses. So far, my overall consensus is that these are great pants. The stretch is fantastic. I can freely kneel, stoop, and raise my knees without discomfort/without hiking my pants up. The pockets are great... front pockets are lined for cold days/nights if I need to put my hands in to keep my fingers warm, and the side pockets have sewed in top flaps so that whatever is in there, wont jump out aka keys, calls, gps, etc. The legs are nicely tapered so that I don't have extra baggage hanging around and they hug my ankles well. I also appreciate the elastic on the back, as a girl who is quite small and finding anything in my size in camo is impossible. But First Lite offered the smallest waist size and now elastic so I am on board!
Now, with all these positives there is one thing I would like to have changed for the next line. These pants are rather noisy. They aren't as bad as some pants out there but for the price of the Ascent Pant by Sitka, I was hoping for something as quiet as Sitka. Spreading my feet apart as I walk helps a little bit, and sneaking wont be an issue, but if I want to scout/spot quietly? ehh that may take some effort.
But overall I do like these pants and I will be interested to see how they do in the field.
