In Stock & Ready to Ship

As you prepare for early season sits in a tree stand, hunting the Elk Rut in September, or getting out for Mule Deer in the waning warmth of October, you can rest assured First Lite has your pants covered. The new Obsidian Foundry pant continues to incorporate field-tested and approved ripstop merino into the outerwear's main body to better regulate temperature, remain silent when moving, and resist the build-up of odor-creating bacteria. Key friction zones through the Seat, Crotch Gusset, and Lower Leg have been constructed with durable stretch nylon to provide snag and tear resistance where it is needed most and offer moisture protection through DWR treatment. To top them off, the Obsidian Foundry pants feature and include a new suspender system with reduced hardware and friction points for hunters who pack out heavy.

This pant uses a rigid waistband with no stretch. If your waist falls close to or directly between sizes, select the next size up.

    Awesome pants for spring turkey

    I’m very pleased with the performance of my new First Lite suit after being able to use it extensively over the past couple of weeks in the varying range of weather we have in the North East for Spring turkey hunting. I’ve found it to be very comfortable all day and much quieter than my last suit (but not silent). I was initially concerned that the pants could not be ordered to an exact length but the extra length and stretch of the material made a perfect and complete fit over my boots. I ordered my usual size and it was roomy enough to add or shed layers underneath in the varying temperatures (ranged from 35F - 65F).
    Pros: very comfortable, quick dry, tear resistant, roomy flex fabric stretches over boots and permits layering, plenty of pockets. Cons: quieter but not silent, would like the ability to adjust the wrist tighter so sleeves don’t slide down over hands. Color match between pants and jacket was noticeably different but close enough(tech support said it’s normal due to different dye lots).

    Overall a big upgrade over my older suit, very satisfied.

    Awesome all around outdor pants.

    I recently purchased these pants and wore them turkey hunting. Double side pockets are very nice. Ordered my normal pants size amd the fit was great. Theyre very comfortable. The only negative i have is that the merino sections have caught on thorns and caused snags. I plan on wearing these in the fall as well, and paired with a heavier base layer could probaly keep you warm through most of the season until the temps really start to drop.

    Nice, comfortable pants

    I find myself wearing these as everyday pants more than for specific outdoor uses. Good for hiking and general field wear.

    Great pants, not obsidians

    I was really excited to try these out, as the obsidians are bar none my favorite hunting pants I own. I have not experienced any of the durability issues with the originals that some folks complain about but an upgrade is exciting nonetheless. When I received the foundry’s I was surprised to see just how much of the merino wool material has been replaced. The original obsidians are virtually silent in the woods and even with some use and a few washes the foundry’s are a bit louder when moving around than I’d like. Regardless of that particular complaint, they are still great pants and I guess a little more durable for the folks whose thighs rub together when they walk.

    In regard to sizing, I’m tall and lean, with a true pant size of 32/34 and I found that I definitely needed to size up the waist in the foundry’s to a 34 to allow for comfortable layering.
