    Pants for the Mountain Hunter

    Out of curiosity, what pants are all of you wearing into the woods? I have to go with the brands that offer tall sizes and I am curious what all of you are using.

    I've been using the Sitka Mountain Pants for a couple years now and really like them. Light enough for early season and with the addition of a layer or two, warm enough through the end of October. I have yet to experience any durability issues as well.

    I like the Core4 Switchback pant when it's really hot, but it better be dry, not even a dew in the morning, or I get soaked.
    I really like the Sitka 90% pant, I've been wearing them for 3-4 years now, they are great. Shed water well, breath well, don't get too hot in them, and I don't get cold, unless it's really cold.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Sitka Timberline and Mountain Pants with the suspenders. I really like the stretchable fabric. It makes them really enjoyable to wear.

    I've been using the Sitka Ascent and Dew Point. IMO even though the Dew Point pants are a bit on the noisy side, still money well spent.

    Cold weather: Levi's with 15 year old Browning Fleece pants over them. If it really cold I will wear long johns too.

    Warm weather: Kings Camo not sure what? or the same Browning fleece pants I wear in cold weather, with shorts under them.

    I'm not up to speed on hunting clothes.

    You all can laugh, but try them and you'll be sold. Target brand C9 golf pants. Search them. They are $29.99 retail and buy one, get one half off right now. I wear them in a light khaki or slate gray color for high country elk, deer, or bear hunting. For anything down to 20 degrees, these are my go-to's. Merino base layer which I shed mid-morning and these pants are indestructible. 100% polyester - you can jump in a creek at 10:30 AM and be dry by 10:50 AM in the low humidity high country climate of September. Far and away my favorite archery elk hunting pants. For the ultra-lightweight freaks among us, they are feather weight too. 11 ounces for my 32x32's.

    (I do have a couple pairs of Core4 pants - both the switchbacks and more insulated version - but they usually stay in the closet).

    Im rolling with Sitka 90% pant. Will match that with merino wool base layer and when it gets cold I will throw on my sitka Kelvin pant.
