I read a bunch of reviews of how these pants are too short and I was worried because that often happens to me with pants that fit well otherwise... maybe first lite listened to previous reviews, these pants are long and fit great. I wear a lot of outdoor brands every day for my job - columbia, prana, marmot, rei, moutain hardware, etc. These pants are my fav. Well made and comfortable. Wish they came in more colors.
I haven’t been able to use these in the field yet but I can review the fit. I am just about 130 lbs & was undecided between size XS and S because I wanted something more form fitting, but the S fits great, no bulk or bagginess, and I can layer under if need be. So happy to have some women’s gear that isn’t cut like a kids’ XL! I love the feel of the material.
The only feedback I have is on the length - I’m 5’7”, so I wish the inseam was a little longer. It looks alright with boots on but a couple more inches at least would make this pant perfect for me.
I've worn these pants for all types of hunting. They are my go to hunting pant. Even though they are a thin, stretchy material, they are a lot more durable than you'd think. I've worn them in thick places you'd normally wear a brush pant and they handled it perfectly! No rips or holes and kept me from getting poked by most brush. Very comfortable to hike in and keep you relatively warm. I only would not recommend for cold tree stand hunting.
These pants are my go to's for any backcountry mountain hunt where I know I'll be hiking a lot. I've worn them from early archery where they shine the most into the late season. They aren't the best for late season, but they are a great option if it's in the 20s or 30s and you'll be hiking a lot, I just pair them with some puffy pants if I switch to an ambush setup or glassing. I bought a second pair of these pants because I really enjoyed the feel, breathability, quickness to dry, and pockets. They are super quiet and really are the best hiking pants ever. I might buy a third pair to put in the rotation. My only complaint is that if you're really hard on them (like going through tons of scrub oak or other super thick areas) they can pill but I've never had them tear despite putting them through the wringer. Whatever, no clothes are bomb proof but these are pretty dang durable.
These pants are super comfortable and go well with layers to fit most weather conditions. The only thing I would change would be to make them a bit longer.
