Extremely comfortable, breathable, and stretchy. Only reason for a 4 star is that I do not find them to be the most durable pant in the Sitka lineup. I own three pairs, and am reluctant to wear them in the woods for fear of getting thorn pulls, or other tears. They're certainly a great pant for everyday. If you're looking for "strong" pants, IMO, the Back 40 pant is the pant you can walk through anything and never worry about a rip. I prefer work pants to be nearly indestructible, and these do not fit that bill but golfing, a trail hike, and motor sports -- yes. Briars, climbing trees, or scaling a hill -- no.
Just picked up 2 pairs of these a few weeks ago and I love them. Super comfortable, good fit with a nice stretch when needed. I've worn them to work, around the house, and on a few conditioning hikes. So far they seem very resilient to stains and things. Looking forward to using them on a week-long Appalachian Trail hike next month.
Fit nice and are comfortable but are not something to go scouting in. I read reviews and bought a couple pair. First time out I have so many snags on these pants. I’ll see about sending them back and update a review accordingly.
First day wearing these trousers on the job, and so far so good. The only change I would make, because both outdoorsmen (Me) and Law Enforcement (also me) tend to carry things on their belts, would be to add a few more belt loops. Thanks.
The overall comfort of these pants cannot be matched. Lightweight, breathable and good looking too. The sizing does run smaller than anything else Sitka sells. Word of advice, go at least one size up before ordering online. Sizing is my only reason for not giving them a 5 star review.
I only give it 4 stars because of the sizing problem I had with them. I ordered the same size as my other Sitka pants and they were way to small. I had to return them and get the next size bigger and they are to big, but I am taking them to the tailor to get the waist taken down some. Other than that, the actual pants are 5-star quality and have great functionality. I do yard work and backpack in them.
This pant is like the utility player in baseball. It does it all! From the office, to the tree stand or just the comfy lounging pant, it does it all. The fit is great and the 4 way stretch is exactly what you want in a pant. I'll have these in all colors soon!
