    I like my two pairs of marmot scree pants.100$ going on 3 years of rock crawling and they are still holding up.Not 100% water proof but dry very quickly.

    Sport hill for me... Stretchy so they don't bind the knees, zipper pockets,zippers on the bottom of the legs which is great for plastic boots,and belt loops..

    I have Sporthills and have worn them a few times. Comfy but man they are warm... a little too warm for me most of the time. I like em in the brush moose hunting. Quiet and warm but stickers poke right through. I hate the thin stretchy belt loops on em.

    The last couple years I've worn OR Cirque pants sheep hunting. I love em. Windproof, breathable, stretchy and dry in minutes. The fabric is tough. They have a boot lace hook on the front which is great. I also wear em fishin and hiking in the summer.

    Only downfall was I couldn't find any pewter/grey ones when I bought mine, had to settle for black. I think gray is the best color in the sheep mountains

    color dont mean squat to me personally I'd wear pink if it was the only color available and they were great pants..lol SNYDhard to tell but they look a little shiny are the soft to the touch or more like fabric on a sleeping bag shell.... Might be worth checking out my next go around on pants especially considering OR's outstanding customer service and product guarantees..appreciate the info...

    They don't have em in pink but they have these sporty blue ones



    They are a softshell and tough. I've always had good luck with OR stuff. I bought some Revel rain gear last year and put it to the stress test in the Brooks. The fabric is a little stretchy and soft/supple. I wore the pants and jacket with just a base layer in a downpour, at night, loaded with sheep up and down scree, slipping sliding, wore them the next two days through brush and they held up well. Time will tell but so far so good.

    I found mountain hardwear ridge top pants in my size for $19 each a couple years ago and they have been my go-to ever since. They are very stretchy and dry extremely fast. I also have a set of westcomb made of shoeller dryskin which are very nice but cost a bunch more so don't get worn as much. Sitka ascent pants are in the collection as well and have been worn as my "clean pants" for the drive home for my last couple fly in hunts. I finally found a use for my sport hill pants.... They are perfect for wearing under my klim bibs during the winter, darn spendy long johns!!!! I actually did wear them hunting bears this unseasonably cold spring and they were good for that but way to hot for sheep season.

    You boys must run hot... Besides a time or two during the fires in the ak range when temps were around 90 or the first sheep hunt of the season when we wear shorts cause everything is hot I have never been overheated in my sport hills...

    I see they are better priced on Amazon, but the sizing is in M, L, XL, etc. and I have found that way of measuring to be very unreliable. Any place in the Los Anchorage area selling them???

    And of course, only tailored for short people.

    Kuiu Attack pants are my current favorite. I even bought 2 pair to wear around town.




    I wore Arcterx's Gamma MX Pant Men's, I really like these as well.

    These are a pair of Sporthill old school pants, bought my wife a set of their new stuff.

    Pants?!?!...who needs pants?... just put on both pair of skivvies

    1/2 ram and gear in the pack for a long haul out, plus sun and hot means Sporthills are hanging off the back.
