    The foundry pants are awesome! Plenty warm, waterproof in all the right areas, and the new suspender design is pretty good. The only thing I would change is I prefer a mesh backed side zip for venting. The new suspender set up is nice, but it does bug me when wearing a bino harness and my mystery ranch backpack. Overall I really like the pants!

    Catalyst Foundry Pants - Terrific

    Loved these pants. Hunted first rifle season Colorado. Weather was low to mid 20's in the morning and up to mid 50's to low 60's in the day. Just wore merino wool thermals under them and stayed warm while relatively inactive in the cold mornings. Did some afternoon hikes and unzipped the sides a bit to dump heat and worked really well. Only criticism is the way the knee pads are retained. The knee pads were awesome but the right side felt like it was slowly working its way out of the fabric holding it. They are inserted from the bottom and there is no elastic or anything to retain them. I wish they were inserted from the top or the side instead.

    Finally broke down and upgraded from my Army surplus camo pants. These pants exceeded my expectations. So comfy, warm and most importantly sexy.

    Pants are awesome!

    I normally wear a size 32 but I wish I would have ordered a size up in these. A little tight on the waist but that’s the only issue!

    Great Hunting Pants

    I've only had the chance to use these pants once but they performed great. They seem really resistant to tears. They were very warm and had nice zippered pockets on the legs which was very handy. Side zippers work great for dumping heat. Also loved the knee pads.

    Tough as nails

    Not only are these pants comfortable and warm, they’re extremely tough. First time hunting in them I went through a huge sticker bush and a bur patch, not a single rip or tear on them.
