  • Sheep pants

    After doing some looking here in Anchorage and on the internet, looks like finding a pair of Sporthill pants is going to be hard if not impossible before my sheep hunt coming up on the 24th of Aug. Was wondering if anyone has found any similar type pants to use for sheep hunting. Barney's has the new camo pant, but thought the price was a bit higher than I want to spend right now. Thanks in advance for your help.

          sheep pants

          I bought a pair of the sport hill pants at Barneys last week. They were the black ones. They cost 130 dollars. They had several different sizes. The camoflage ones were 150. Maybe the prices went up? I can not say enough good things about those black sport hill pants. I wore them for 4 years of hard hunting. I had to stitch the seat from sliding down rocks, but still use them. The rear did not rip but had lots of little holes from the shale. I bought another pair because i was concerned that like many things once you find somthing that works great they either change it or eliminate it. Thosse pants can be soaken wet and dry in only an hour just from the wind. They are the best thing i have ever hunted in. Hope you can find them at a good price as you will love them Chef Viktor

            Sheep Pants

            I bought a pair of Windshear pants from Cabela's last spring. They were $50.
            They have a black fleece tight weave, nylon sewn in knees. A couple of cargo pockets that aren't too large. A elastic/velcro cuff setup with a elastic and cinch buckles for the waist. You might try to find them on the Cabela's website and see what you think. I am seriously considering taking them next week for my sheep hunt.

              Pants

              Having not heard of the SportHill, I will be using REI's Minstral pants for an earler season hunt. On sale now for $70, but color and sizes limited (I got dark khaki). They also have heavier ones called the Taku which I tried but sent back.

              Which SportHill do you guys use? There are a lot of them on their website, are there different/better ones for mtn hunting?

                pants

                bizymocha;

                do you have a link or product # for the $50 cabelas pants. seems like a smoking deal. what colors do they come in?

                i hav ehad the sporthill pants in blk. from barney's for 5 years now. they are seriously windproof. they make a matching shirt as well. the down side on my pants is there is no fly. i understand they now offer a fly for the guys who don't like pulling their pants down.

                they do rip fairly easily. they are very comfortable and good to climb in. i will have them with me in the park in sept. i would not go without them.

                cabelas makes pants that are very cheap, rugged and wind proof, they are called microtex. not great for climbing, but very windproof and rugged.

                  I like camo US Army helicopter pilot pants. BDUs made from Nomex. Beat the heck out of everything. $10 on ebay, wear like iron, and will dry from your body heat in 10 minutes.

                    Just order the Sporthills direct and cut out the middle man, you can get them for less than $105.

                        Cabelas Outfitter Micro Fleece with cargo pockets. They are the most comfortable fleece pants I have ever worn. Comes with belt loops and 2 outfitter camo patterns. They are $49 and are awesome for early season anything. Got the henley too and you can sweat your ass off and they will breathe great, dry super quick, and combined with long underwear and rain pants will keep you warm enough. It stretches great so you lose no mobility also (for climbing). I love this stuff when you need lightweight, synthetic and breathable. This is my primary outfit for sheep hunting now, just a couple othe rlayering items and its perfect for early season.. Here is the link

                            I have the Microtex too and they are great pants, but for climbing when sheep hunting they restrict my mobility way more than the microfleece, which stretches and gives you more mobility. Just food for thought.

                              Sporthill still the best

                              Sporthill pants are still the best I have tried for Alaskan hunting, either as an outer pant or worn as underwear with a heavier pant for less active hunting. Climbing pants need to stretch, and Microtex pants do not compare to Sporthill pants in this category.

                              You can find these pants made from 3SP fabric on Sporthill's site or other websites. There are several varieties for various prices depending on what features you need. The important aspect is the fabric -- 3SP. It is what makes the pants.
