    I try not to worry about "bombproof" or not at the bottom. I always have the gaiters in my bag, so why not just wear em. Even when it's dry, it helps protect all that stuff on the ground level like pant cuffs and laces. Pants that have a drawstring cuff will snag everything you pass, and this is also avoided with the gaiters on.

    I've got some high end pants and some cheaper pants. There are some good ones in both categories.

    I've got Filson Whipcord wool pants that are nearly $200 new, but will last a lifetime of hard use. I really like them.

    Kuiu attack pants are nice, but based on the picks and small tears I've gotten so far they won't last but a few years. The stretch is really nice on these.

    Railriders are the toughest pants I've ever worn. They dry really fast, are versatile with base layers, and are comfortable. But they're pricey at around $100 a pair.

    Arborwear makes some good stuff that is a bit cheaper. 5.11 Taclite Pro pants are a great value at around $50.

    I'd like to try a pair of the cheap golf pants mentioned. I bet they will work surprisingly well.

    i bet those golf pants work well too, all this fancy cammo stuff really isnt important and all these new fancy patterns is whats driving some of these pants so high. obviously along with some diff material here and there. scott, i thought bout sending those pants in for exchange for new but once i get a bad first impression it leaves a foul taste in my mouth. i do want to check out those railriders though.

    Next pants I get will be grey timberlines from Sitka. Camp is a tool that helps, but can't fix bad hunting tactics and practices.

    I wear Sitka mountain pants and %90 for colder hunts. I like them both, light weights a durable.
