The Story

Our highly-technical hunting pants were inspired by extensive research that went beyond traditional hunting gear. The result is unsurpassed comfort and protection never before seen in upland clothing. It all starts with the tightly woven ripstop front panel. It's water and briar resistant for added protection where you need it most. The highly breathable base fabric is also water-resistant with a DWR finish, that keeps you both dry and cool. Add in articulated knees and technical stretch allowing for easy mobility, and you have the most comfortable hunting pants you've ever worn. You won't want to take them off after the hunt. With these do-it-all hunting pants, you can leave your chaps at home for the early morning dew-drenched hunts and open up the mesh-lined zippered ventilation for the warmer afternoon hunts. Internal adjustable cuff acts as a hidden gaiter. In slate/dark shadow. All pockets zip to keep contents secure.

Nylon/polyester/spandex. Washable. Imported.

Even waist sizes 32-46, inseams 30", 32", 34".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from most comfortable hunting pants I have had After years of searching I found THE pant. I have been hunting my whole life and have worn many different pants. My biggest need from them was use in the uplands. I live in SD and was able to get out 43 days this season. These pants are THE real deal. I wore them in 80 degrees in sage country fighting off cactus, to open prairies with mild temps, to cattail sloughs in below freezing temps. After the temp got below 30 I put on base layers. This made them even more comfortable and I wore them in negative degree weather with wind chill in a good amount of snow, my legs never got cold, and stayed dry. The pants took multiple runs in with barb wire and never tore. They were also tested in the harsh cover of pheasant hunting. They held up great!! The stretch and ability to move better is amazing. Along with the materials used to make it light and durable. Absolutely the most comfortable hunting pants I have ever owned and totally worth it. The front pocket zippers did come loose, but CS helped me get that sorted out. THE BEST PANTS FOR ALL AROUND UPLAND HUNTING

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic pants I use multiple pairs of these pants for most of my bird hunting. They are surprisingly waterproof, and alleviate the need to use less comfortable fully waterproof pants in all but the wettest conditions. I liked the pants so much at first, I immediately bought more. I’ve used them in everything from thick cattails, to brushy river bottoms, to long walks on the prairie. For me these are a cool or cold weather pant. Must haves. They transition well to other active winter and fall pursuits. The only con is the front pocket zippers fail over time (two seasons). That being said, that is over 100 days in the field.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Upland Pant!!!! I have owned this pant for 2 hunting season. I shed hunt in them. Bird hunt hunt in them, grouse in Wisconsin Pheasant in Iowa. Took them to Alaska on a 14 day Moose and Caribou hunt. They were my go to pant over my Sitka and Kuiu guide pants. They are indestructible!! I plant food plots in 90 degree heat, hang treestands, cut fire wood and TSI in these suckers. Love the fit and cut. They are pricey but worth the $$.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Pants I love these pants. Have been out hunting around 20 times this year and the pants still look new. Keep me warm and dry no matter the conditions. Had them out today in 15 degree weather. Layered with some mid weight merino wool long underwear and couldn’t have been more comfortable. Worked well during the early season as well as they are breathable and have venting. Can’t go wrong with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb cooler weather upland pant I read the 1-star and 3-star reviews on this pant to see if I was missing anything. I don't agree with those who found these pants fitting too small. They are a slimmer more athletic fit but I wear a waist 32 and these pants fit perfectly. The stretch fabric makes the athletic fit unrestricting. I have found the roomy/baggier fits to compromise movement in the field. The nylon coil zippers on the pockets offer reassuring security for items you place in those pockets. yes, the coil does rake the back of your hand when you reach in but it is a soft nylon, not metal, and I prefer the extra security and that leaf litter doesn't accumulate in the pocket. I did not hunt them in thorny habitat but did use them is stiff stubby sage brush and was very happy with the protection they offered. I like the narrower lower leg. I had no problem pulling them over my 9" lace-up upland boots and the inner cuff ensures debris does not fall into the top of the boot. I think this feature would be very appealing to those who hunt in a shorter boot, but I prefer the 8-9" high boot. These are a warm pant and they are my favorite winter outdoor pant for all activities - snowshoeing, shoveling snow, duck hunting, etc. I have friends who ear them in warm weather and they say the leg vents keep them plenty cool. Good to know but I prefer and have a lighter weight pant for the warmer part of the season. The quality of this pant is outstanding - materials, fittings, quality of stitching. You get everything and more than you pay for with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable Very comfortable and fit great. They have kept me dry and warm. They are a little tight getting boots on but to me that just ensures they aren’t going to ride up and get stuff in your boots
