Men's Sawbuck Brush Pant

Nylon Brush Pant with DWR


Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

Durable, comfortable, and built to move, the brush-busting Sawbuck pant is the answer to navigating through Idaho sagebrush and Sonoran thorns. We've combined our proven Corrugate Guide Pant, 4-way stretch nylon with double-panel nylon brush panels and triple-needle reinforced stitching to create a workhorse that fits and moves like a climbing pant.

The rigid waistband manages a heavier overall pant construction, while the articulated construction and stretch paneling provide unobstructed mobility in the field. With both belt and suspender loops and a DWR finish to shed moisture, the Sawbuck Pant has created a much-needed solution for hunters navigating through the roughest environs.

Very good pants

Impressed with these pants. Comfortable, tough and look great in Conifer. Just a tad long in a 35 inseam as I usually wear a 34. Hope FL starts making a wider variety of sizes as it seems that most unhappy reviews are due to fit. I however and not one of those. Apart from the length they fir like a dream. I wear a 32 waist so that's what I bought and I'm happy with it. I'm a fit guy so maybe it's different if your carrying some extra fluff but I think the fit is great

Very Nice Pants

I'm an upland grouse and woodcock hunter (MI and WI), and I wanted to love these pants but ended up returning them. I've been shopping around for a new pair of pants for this fall's season and have been testing out all the major upland brands (Orvis, Filson, First Lite). I wanted something that will be thorn and briar resistant in the thickest cover, significantly waterproof or water-resistant for morning walks through dew-covered vegetation, and both light enough for a warm early-season afternoon and substantial enough for a cold late-season morning. These pants checked off two of the three boxes. When I first opened the package, I was super impressed by the quality of the Sawbuck pant. They are very well made, and I loved the Conifer color (way better than standard two-tone upland pants). The material seems tough enough to handle thorns and briars, so that wasn't an issue at all. The Sawbuck pant is on the lighter end of the spectrum, and so I would place them more as an early-season pant––though I could imagine them being substantial enough with a warm thermal baselayer, provided that you were walking rather than sitting. The two issues for me, and the reasons I returned them, were water-resistance and fit. I poured a small amount of water on the reinforced material, and almost none of it beaded off; it completely absorbed. I imagine these pants would get completely water-logged in a half hour or so of walking through dew-covered grass. They did dry out quickly, but not being more water-resistant was a major negative for me. In contrast, I compared them to the Orvis Softshell Upland Pants, and the Orvis pants shed water significantly better (though they are heavier as well). Finally, the fit of these pants was a problem for me. I am typically a 31"x30" and the Sawbuck pants in 32"x32" were way too big (too long, too baggy in the thighs/knees, and too big in the waist). I didn't try the 30"x30" because of the water issue, but I imagine they would be too tight.

Within 30 seconds of putting these on I knew I had found nirvana. I have always liked technical apparel but have found there to be a compromise between movement and durability. Not with these! The knees are sturdy but not bulky, the cuff is robust As not to be torn to shreds and the crotch is stretchy and forgiving. I’m not saying trade in your old faithful Levi’s or Car-Hurts, but as far as a do anything day to day pant that also functions in the field, two thumbs up. Can’t wait to try em out in September in the AZ brush chasing bulls. P.S. I normally wear a 28 waist and 32 inseam and got the 30x30s and I’m very happy unfortunate FL doesn’t make a men’s 28 waist.

Actual Comfort and Mobility while maintaining Durability

A lot of pants claim to be comfortable and have stretch to them. These are the real deal. They are as comfortable as a high end pair of LuLu Lemon athletic pants yet have the reinforcement for durability in only the places you need it. These will be my new go to fishing, bird hunting, camping and hiking pant
