Elevated Podcast Christmas Pick - Sitka Kelvin Light pants – Brian Barney

I have had my eye on these super-insulated pants for a while now and finally pulled the trigger on a pair. I have used insulated puff ball jackets for years to keep warm while stationary on a vantage point, back at camp or anywhere you start to get a chill. The Kelvin Light pants complete this warmth system and can be used for every hunt, early season to late season. Put these pants on over your existing pants while you are sitting still and you are instantly warm. They are like putting on your best insulated sleeping bag only you can walk around in them. One of the best features of these pants is that they zip up right over your outer layers in seconds so there is no need to take off your boots to put this layer on. Another great use for these pants is under waders while fishing in cold weather. I wish I would have bought these pants years ago, but now that I have a pair they are with me on every hunt. They weigh in at 17 oz. and retail for $229. For more details visit
