    Default Which Hunting Pants?

    I'm trying to find the "best" choice in a synthetic hunting/climbing pant that is:
    a. warm enough for fall deer hunting;
    b. windprood to at least 25mph;
    c. stays warm when wet and dries quickly.

    Looking at these:

    Cabelas High Country Super Shell Pant;
    Cabelas Microtech;
    3SP Mountain Pants.

    Doesn't need to be camo but that's an extra feature I wouldn't mind. Who has experience with these, especially the High Country?

    Thanks.

    Default Have you thought about Sporthills

    Check out this link, I just got mine after many sheep hunters recommended them. I have worn them out with temps to -30 with only fleece underwear. They stretch and are extremely comfortable. There is a thread about them on the pristine adventure forum. They are on sale at this link for $99.95, the normal price about 200 bucks. I really like them and they are the only pants I'm taking on my fall Brown Bear hunt.
    Happy spending

    Default Got 'em

    I picked up the last pair of medium 3SP pants at Mt. View Sports (where they had them for $109) but I'm thinking that they are a bit light for fall hunting. That's why I'm looking for a more "fleecy" pant.

    Still looking for someone out there who can tell me the difference between the Cabelas High Country Super Shell Pant and the Cabelas Microtech.

    Thanks.

    Default Naturalgear

    You might want to try a pair of these they are a thick fleese, and dry quickly. I have a pair and like them, I do like the SP3s better. They are very soft and warm. So much gear, so little money, LOL

    Default microtex

    I have both sporthills and microtex. Sporthills are great but my go to pants for a third of the price are the micro tex. Get the outfitter camo.
