    the Kuiu Attacks are my favorite hunting pant, and they are good in a wide variety of weather and conditions.

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).
    Now were talking!

    I'm going to date myself here but I have Winona camo system made many years ago by Bob Fratzke. Tag says 100% acrylic and made in USA. Bob told me that the only problem with them is they never wear out and need replaced. They won't be worn out before me. Also have some Kryptec that I like.

    I've got some Kryptek Cadog Shield pants in the older Mountain Mimi Cry pattern on the way that I may try this year. I've normally stuck with Scentlok Savannah but with the research I've done and following of Merino wool, I'm also going to pick up a pair of First Lite pants to try.

    I just bought the element pants from Core4 as well. They seem legit, but I've not put them to the test yet.

    im sorry guys but 150 + dollars for a pair of pants is disturbing. i ended up getting some kryptec pants last year and i was very dissapointed. if im going to spend that much money on something it better be bomb proof, wasnt even water proof. sure they were elastic and strechable but im far more comfortable in cheaper gear. core el is by far the best bang for your buck with some left over cash for anything else. i tend to pay more money on my base layer than my outerlayer. some good morreno wool undies are beautifull in thier own way. hell ive even named mine...

    Cost is justified by use and durability, high end pants last much longer.

    Are there any high end pants that aren't camo? If I pay that much for them I want to wear them camping, hiking ect.. I don't like wearing camo when it's not necessary.

    Another reason I have not pulled the trigger on any high end pants is they all seem noisy compared to fleece, I like to be silent in the woods.
