Favorite Upland Pants
« on: September 27, 2017, 08:14:42 AM »
Just curious what everyone likes for upland pants? I've used some L.L.Bean Cresta hiking pants and some L.L.Bean Windstopping pants(same windstopping material as on Sitka) for grouse and really liked them but am looking for something better for abrasion.

The LL Bean Tech Upland pants are pretty nice.  I wear them a lot for pheasant hunting.  Abrasion resistance is very good, and they have a lot of wear on them thus far.

 LLbean Uplander pro nylon briar pants for me.
Flipping awesome.
The strech in the top end make the walking, climbing kneeling, jumping, etc pain free and crotch rip free.
Though if they ever rip, bean will replace no questions asked.
Best customer service of any company out there.

if you really get in the sharp heavy prickers, nothing wrong with Filson tin cloth but for normal situations lighter is better for me...

good to know you feel that way, I worked for L.L.Bean and did design work on some of their hunting line(not the upland pants but wool stuff). The guys that work on their product are hardcore bird hunters and have a real passion for getting out in the field.

I like pants that I can button around my waist.  My personal diameter has a habit of changing.  My last two pair came from Cabelas and work well in brush.

Been in some heavy stuff in my Filsons. But not for warm weather.  Use an early season from Cabelas.

Nothing wrong with double-front Carhartt pants.  They are tough and hold up well to all things pokey.

Really depends on the hunting and time of year. Early Chukar for me brings out the Kuhl Rydr pants. I don't need nor want the weight. If I'm worried about coon tails I wear my Rattlers gatters. I am going to hunt with with Eddie Bauer first ascent light guide pants this year and see how they hold up. Again, light and breath very well.

Heavier brush, the kuhl stuff is great, but not so water resistant in the wet stuff. For wet, wintry I always go to my LL BEAN GORETEX PANTS. BEST OUT THERE AND REALLY COMFORTABLE.

Not if you hunt a lot.  I can't even get two years out of a pair of
Carhartts.

Sitka Ascent pants are very good for chukars too.  Late season I just put on a pair of mid weight wool bottoms and add gaiters.

I guess it depends on your circumstances.  I am putting in six to ten days a year for Quail.  They do get ragged around the cuffs after a couple of years but they seem to hang in there.  They do get heavy when wet but I wear First Lite long johns under them.  Just my .02.

If you can wear them out that fast then you are living life the right way.
