    Recommendations for new hunting pants?

    Well my last pair of hunting pants, good old milsurp camo, have finally been used and abused to the point it no longer makes sense to repair them so am looking to get some new pants for hunting. Mostly fall but some spring too, already have good winter pants so don't need anything heavy like that. I've seen some nice stuff but some gets really pricey, like up to $500. I don't think I'd spend that much but maybe up to around the $300 mark if its really worth it and will last. I have nice merino wool (icebreaker) base layer I wear when it's cooler as well as gaiters when it's wet. So, is it worth spending the extra and getting hunting specific pants or just stick with the cheap old surplus stuff? What does everyone recommend and why?

    Looking online, perhaps the First Lite Corrugate Guide Pant, Sitka Equinox, or Sitka Timberline would be appropriate pants? I think the Corrugate and Equinox are lighter, early to mid season and the Timberlines are a little heavier than that? How do they all hold up to brush etc? Worth the money?

    Costco just got in BC Clothing brand pants. There are two types one lined with cotton and one without. The ones without are 20 bucks and after a couple hikes with them I really like them. They are al light weight full poly so breathe well, seem pretty quiet and are slightly stretchy, time will tell if they hold up around the fire and through bush..

    I also have a pair of cabelas microtex lite pants which are pretty beat but I've been wearing them for 8 years and still love them!
    Unexpected wealth will arrive. Remember he is the richest, who is content with the least, for contentment is the wealth of nature. Although you look for riches, realize that wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants. When riches come don't forget that man's true wealth is the good he does in the world. So when opportunity knocks, grab it. It is easy at any moment to resign the possession of great fortune, to acquire it is difficult and arduous.

    I've been really happy with my Sitka pants, both Ascent and Mountain. Although they'd be too warm on scouting hikes, I'd pick the mountain pants if I had to choose.

    Just curious if you compared the Attack pant to any of the Sitka stuff ? I bought an used set of Timberline Pants but seem a touch heavy for an Aug 1st-15th sheep hunt ? Your thoughts ?
    Because.........I just love rifles !

    If your looking for a cheaper option that's not camo, try the Eddie Bauer Guide pro pants. I got a pair on sale last season and they are super comfortable and stretchy. I wore some merino long underwear under them and they served me well, even in colder temps.

    The only Sitka pant that I've owned that I can compare to is the 90% pant. I found the attacks to be lighter than the 90s and sure helped with the early season stuff. Sorry don, maybe someone else can chime in on this, I don't want to lead astray.

    These or Prana Zion or Renegade Kuhl Renegades are all good quality early season pants.

    I would also look at these from Icebreaker

    http://ca.icebreaker.com/en/midlayer...2683_color=301

    I have the previous model and they are great early to mid season pants.

    Cheers
