And water resistance. And the convenient storage. And the outright durability. And the comfort -- especially if you are covering a lot of ground. But these are not just upland pants. They are Women's Upland Pants. And they need to work right for women. And they do.
I'm a tight size 12. After washing these size 12 pants when I got them, they fit slightly loose. But I could easilly wear my bamboo long underwear under them. I hunted through brush, high weeds and briars. I did have one briar go straight through at the knee. Overall, the pants were comfortable and am glad I made the purchase.
