I've used these pants on a total of 9 days worth of Olympic rainy days in the mountains. I have tons - TONS - of rain gear and usually prefer to hunt with just a rain jacket, but this elk season was calling for an exceptional amount of rain (on the Olympic Peninsula even), so I decided to pick up another new pair of rain pants to the bewilderment of my wife. These bad boys performed. At one point, four days into constant rain, we spotted some spikes on a far off mountain and had to cross a valley river. At one point, the river was just under my belt line. The only wetness I had when I finally extracted myself was around my ankles where I lacked protection from gaiters. I've never cared for gaiters, but I would recommend a pair if you plan on doing river crossings in November. The pants dry extremely quickly - much faster than any GoreTex pants I have. The pants for some reason held up better to prolonged rain than the Seak jacket. It probably has to do with fewer openings. One thing I didn't like was the velcro thigh pockets. A lot of comments here talk about how noisy the pants are when moving - they are - but these pockets are worthless unless you are in elk camp. I walked 62 miles in these during elk season, a majority of which was bushwacking, and beat them up pretty badly. They will hold up through general brush walking, but if you're pushing through devil's club and blackberry vines, they're going to get torn up. If First Lite allowed pictures in their reviews, I would post some of the scratch damage. This isn't really a jab at the Seak as I pushed it to the absolute limit to see what it was capable of, but something to be aware of. It's heavy duty, but you still need to take care of it.
Overall, I highly recommend the Seak. In 62 miles, 29,000' of elevation change over 9 days - largely bushwacking in mid November on the Olympic Peninsula, I have had a chance to put it through its paces and I am highly satisfied with the performance. I love how quickly it dries and the durability exceeds any GoreTex shell I own. 93/100
The PNW is a wet wet area and weather shifts can be almost instant. These pants are light but bulletproof. Whether im in the duck blind or in the thick of the coastal rainforest on the peninsula, this pant crushed the task at hand. Sized a little large making it easy to layer up when needed.
Amazing pants for wet weather. Used shortly after I purchased them for a upland bird hunt, kept me warm and dry when the weather turned to wet snow and rain. Easy to vent excess heat while hiking with full length side zipper. Looking forward to years of use as my hunting specific rain wear.
I bought this along with the jacket, definitely will not keep you warm when the temps drop, but will keep you dry when mother nature pulls out the fire hose. I used this for hiking through the wet thawing woods of the Idaho Panhandle following a freak snowstorm and bitter cold temps. This was of course my outer layer when appropriate. Under this I was able to very comfortably layer my Fuse Long John's Obsidian Merino Pants, Brambler Gators and Uncompahgre Puffy Pants. The cut on these pants is very well executed. The leg fabric does not seem to easily rub on itself during your stride and are fairly quiet while walking...considering they are rain gear.... These are very breathable and the two point suspenders worked well with the traditional three point suspenders on my Obsidian Merino pants. All in all these are very well thought out and comfortable. Did I mention the pockets are epic? I recommend this system. . . If you're backpacking consider the Stormlight system.
These pants are the best wet weather pants I’ve ever used. From a drizzle to a downpour, these keep me dry.
These are amazing. I have hunted in Alaska a handful of times in cheaper rain gear and always ended up miserable and wet. I bought these for a caribou hunt and it rained the entire trip however I stayed nice and dry.
I ordered these pants because I have the seak stormtight jacket and I love it. I didn’t use these for a couple months since the weather was holding up. I took them out in my first hunt in the snow and sat down to get out of the weather and As soon as I sat down a gaping hole tore in the right cheek of the butt from a small stick. I still love my jacket but the pants disappointed me and I only got one use out of them. They still look brand new.
I purchased both the Stormtight pants and jacket for use during hunting and fishing trips. I tried them both out for the first time on a weekend fishing tournament with temps running from 50s to 80s and off and on rain with occasional downpour. I will say I'm extremely impressed with both. I stayed bone dry during rain periods regardless of how heavy it came down and both were shockingly breathable. I kept the pants on all day both days over my regular clothes and never got over-heated or sweaty underneath. At the end of each day I shook them off a little and hung them up under our deck and a half hour later you couldn't tell they were ever wet. Fit is very good for me and I intend to wear them over other clothes and even the sleeves fit great for me and appear to be fit close enough to not interfere with bowhunting. They are not dead quiet but I feel they are a great compromise between quiet and completely water proof. Overall this is the best rain gear I have ever used and I couldn't be happier with it.
I bought these for hunting/ice fishing as they are waterproof and at times thats exactly what I need. I bought L(large), and maybe could of gone for the XL but I hate when stuff is too baggy. I wear 36x32 in levi jeans and I would say these have a bit of an athletic fit, but I can wear jeans under them. If your waist is bigger then that go for the XL. They are some of the quieter pants in regards to waterproof ones, but no they are sneakworthy when compared to fleece like pants. Hope that helps.
These pants are amazing. My only issue with them being that the Velcro fasteners on the pockets. Hunting in ultra quiet no wind white tail stands, try getting these pockets open without bumping the whole area. Suggest a magnetic fastener system or a quiet snap like Sitka uses. Great piece otherwise.
