Obsidian Merino Pants

Ripstop Merino and Stretch Nylon


Color/PatternFirst Lite Cipher

Silent, odor resistant, and comfortable from 100 degrees into late season, the Obsidian merino pant takes the torch from the best-selling Kanab 2.0 pant with the fit being based off our hugely popular Corrugate Guide Pant. The Obsidian's ergonomic design and proprietary, stretch merino/nylon fabric work in conjunction to move and flex with the body and provide maximum durability all while preserving the qualities you love about Merino. Reinforced with rip-stop nylon, this woven merino pant has no UV signature or shine and fends off odor-causing bacteria better than any synthetic. Stretch nylon panels also enhance range of motion and provide durability and support in high stress areas. The Obsidian pant is equipped with detachable suspenders for a superior fit with pack or harness and can be used with other First Lite pants. This piece is machine washable and will dry quickly over a branch or on a line. These features make the Obsidian a superior choice for a wide range of stationary and active hunting applications.

Most comfortable pants ever

Most comfortable pants I’ve ever owned, hands down. They breath and stretch just right. I’ve had them for a year and wear them all the time. They are NOT a very durable pant, certainly not the ones to bash brush with. They are completely silent, and they dry very quickly. Not the one pant to rule them all, but an amazing pant for specific uses.

Fit Comments: Fits good
Location: Mountains
Primary Use: Hunting

Tried these pants for a scouting trip this weekend, comfortable, and kept me cool, but that's it. I walked through areas that had foxtail weeds and not only did they penetrate very easily they destroy the threading of the pants. I sat down on dirt to glass scooted around to get comfortable and ripped a dime sized hole in the seat.
