I like the Ben Davis pants for warmer weather and filson whipcord wool for cold weather.

The LLBean upland pants are great, but I've taken to wearing the Wrangler Riggs double front work pants. Also, I wear the D.Trading Co. upland pants, as well. A bargain are the Dickies work pants; they are made out of the same cloth as the DTC pants.

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

Not if you hunt a lot.  I can't even get two years out of a pair of
Carhartts.
Might be worth it to wash them every once in a while. :chuckle:

Yep. They last forever and you don't have to break the bank. Of course Cab, they're not a stylish as what you LL Bean boys like to be seen in!  :chuckle:

Yep, looking good is what it's about.
I love walking around in double front Carhartts saturated with water that weigh 25 pounds. Form over function for sure!!!

 :chuckle: True not great when wet. But that's not a lot, especially on the east side. I had to give my hunting partner a little guff.

LL Bean tech pants arenít cheap, but well worth it IMO.  I hunt pheasants a lot some years and we cover ground.  I shredded the legs of the Carhartts in two years, plus they are not very comfortable when they are wet.

The Bean pants are going into their 4th season and will last much longer than that, making them a better value than Carhartts.  As pointed out, value depends on your usage.  If I was hunting quail 6-10 times a year, I would probably stick with the Carhartts.

Ask Bob33 about getting wet while pheasant hunting.

You know me Pianoman, the kind of guy that has the "fancy" clothing but still decides to use a recurve  :chuckle: I think my dad might have put that under "think about priorities" category because every camo/piece of clothing looks good when theres a dead animal in front of it.

We still have yet to reach that point this season, unfortunately.  :bash:

For pheasants I am almost always in a set of rain pants.  I buy the cheap pairs that I don't mind getting torn up from barbwire.  The heavy cover I hunt gets me wet even when it's not raining.

LLbean tech pants for me. I wear them for all hunts. Grouse on the wet and dry side and Chukar early and late. I love the legs allow you crawl over logs and climb steep hills with out getting hung up. I have about 300 miles on a used pair my friend gave me. So I would say they are maid really well
