    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 the sitka mountain pants take the knee pads out. They're nice but I'm really considering a pair of kuiu attack or guide pants. The attacks with a good base layer should suffice most of my needs especially in warmer weather with no base layer. The mountain pants are hot even with no base layer in warmer weather. And cool in the 20's with a good merino base layer. Can't decide for sure what to do.

    Spray a pair of $30.00 wranglers with a $2 can of camp dry and hang for a few days to let the smell go away... cheap, waterproof pants that will last. I own insulated nice pants for tree stand hunting but for hiking I just love jeans. Don't think I will ever change.

    It's almost always warm/hot here in California, even at 9,000+ feet. A 'cold' night is maybe down to the high 20's and usually later in the season. I'm trying some new 100% nylon hiking pants and so far they are excellent.

    I just purchased a pair of Propper tactical pants that are a little different from the normal ones. They are nylon and spandex and DWR coated. They should be here in about a week and I will try them out and update but they sound pretty good as far as comfort and water repellent. They also have a STL 2 pant that is more athletic fitting but I thought the 1's would work out better.

    Propper STL 1 Pants $50
