5 Best Hunting Pants

Choosing the right hunting pants can make all of the difference on your next hunt. In this article, we'll go over some of the things to look for when choosing your next pair of hunting pants, along with our 5 best hunting pants.

Things to consider when looking for hunting pants:

  • Material

The material of your hunting pants is crucial, as it can impact both your comfort and performance. If you know you’ll be getting wet, look for waterproof pants made from durable and waterproof materials such as GORE-TEX or neoprene. These materials will keep you dry in wet conditions, and protect you from brush, briars, and other hazards that you may encounter in the field. If you will be hunting in cold temperatures look for insulated pants. For even more warmth in cold conditions, we also carry heated hunting pants!

  • Comfort

If you are going to be walking or hiking while hunting you'll want to consider comfort when shopping for hunting pants. Pants with stretchy material will make maneuvering easier and more comfortable. Pants with zippered legs can also be helpful to cool down during physical activity or temperature changes.

  • Pockets

Hunting pants should have plenty of pockets to carry any gear you plan on carrying on your person. Look for pants with multiple pockets, including cargo pockets and secure zippered pockets for important items.

  • Camouflage

If you are looking at camouflage pants, you should consider your environment and the time of year you are hunting. The species of animal you are hunting factors into it too. Camouflage for a fall mountain elk hunt would be different than a winter waterfowl hunt. Luckily for you, we carry a wide range of brands and camo patterns like Sitka Gear, Nomad, Under Armour, and more!

Best hunting pants I've owned

I have two pairs of these. Super rugged, well designed, and really comfortable. The belt and suspenders combo is much better than I expected. Knee pads took only a short time to get accustomed to and are worth their weight when crawling around out west. I'm normally a 34W but got 36W because they were on a killer sale. No problems with being too loose especially with a base layer underneath. 34W would likely be ok as well. They stretch just a little.

Great Pants for the value

These are great pants for the price. The fit is good. I am 6'2 180lbs. I order the 34 x 34. The length is perfect, and waist is true. The waist does have an elastic band so you can make them stretch if you need to. If your looking for a all around pair of pants for hunting at a reasonable price, these are a good option.
