Out of the box, they felt like a pant that Midwest grouse covers would eat alive. They were almost pajama pant comfortable, so to say I’m surprised that after 30+ real days afield so far, there isn’t so much as a thread pull or fabric pilling would be an understatement. I’m ordering a second pair to keep a dry rotation going for next season. They do run a tad tight, so order the waist the next size up.
These pants are leading me to suggest that firstlite greatly expand their upland clothing options.
These Sawbucks are my new favorite western hunting pants. The reinforced areas are just what was missing from previous pants. I’ll be keeping my Corrugate Guide pants but these do everything they do and more. I love how they stretch when needed but are not too baggy.
Worn these 3 times. All 3 times it collected brush like Velcro, eventually poking all the way through into my skin. Contacted firstlite about this and they said "They are lightweight so they are still susceptible to brush poking slightly through the pants and certain types of burrs adhering to the fabric. I would suspect you would not feel any vegetation on your skin by wearing a pair of long johns beneath them." If you are looking for a pant that won't pick up brush and poke through the pants, these are NOT them. That is of course unless you want to wear more layers in order to protect yourself from stickers that the brush pant can't protect you. Perhaps they should change the name of the pant and the description because these are not brush pants...
I bought these to replace an old pair of Cabelas pant.
They fit a little tight around the waist (my fault) . They are also tight to the calf so much that I can’t pull them up to pull up my socks( God’s fault for blessing me with giant calves) the rest of the fit is great, they move very well with me.
They aren’t as tough as I expected, wore them on a three day mule deer hunt and one of the belt loops (attached to first lite suspenders) came unstitched at the top so it sort of just hangs there... took them out today 10/23/19 for upland bird here in central Wa. All day in sagebrush, rose hips and assorted other grass and brush has them starting too turn fuzzy... which means to me that the fabric is starting to wear... they also didn’t do as well as expected against the rose hip thorns.. I didn’t get shredded but I did get an acupuncture treatment from them especially in the goin where there isn’t any reinforcement. If a thorn misses the reinforced fabric you’re gonna get it. They protected well against tumble weed thorns and the less aggressive stuff. Over all they are a nice set of pants, but for $160 plus tax and shipping and being a First Liter product I was really expecting more .
Purchased these pants in Dry Earth to replace my LL Bean bird hunting pants for Ruffed Grouse in New Hampshire and Maine. After 5 days straight of wearing them in the thick woods, I was pleased to see no pulls or wear and they were super comfortable. Highly recommend!
