At just 10.4 oz. in a Medium, the Dewpoint Pant is our lightest and most packable rain pant. It is built uncompromisingly for ounce-counting backcountry hunters who rely on their rain gear in dicey situations far from any road. We worked with the scientists at W.L. Gore to invent a new three-layer, extremely light GORE-TEX® Fabric with one of the highest abrasion resistance ratings in our rain gear line. The innovative face fabric, a 20 Denier stretch woven nylon mini ripstop, bestows a stretchability that was previously impossible in waterproof garments.
By design, we kept features to a minimum. Articulated patterning means the Dewpoint Pant moves with you as you forge ahead. An enclosed, low-profile belt adjusts the waist. All zippers are welded and watertight. The full side zippers makes for easy on and off as conditions change.

I finally got the opportunity to really field test these pants on a Selkirk Mountain elk hunt this week. It rained hard and steady for the whole day; these pants kept me dry. I wore long underwear and pants under the raingear and stayed pretty warm. The brush was THICK and soaked wet, staying dry in those conditions is nearly impossible. I'm really impressed and will absolutely be recommending the dewpoint pants/jacket. Top notch!

To fragile to be used on a sheep hunt in the N.W.T. After 7 days the seat was pretty well shredded. Wet rocks are slick and you do fall on your butt from time to time. Fortunately Sitka did replace them and I will save them for a less physical kind of hunt.

Hi Kevin - As always appreciate the feedback. It's great to hear both sides; we get a lot of comments about how surprisingly durable the Dewpoint Pants are and then there are those like your own. It truly comes down to perception and how conscious you are as the user. Your are right, they are not our most durable pant but I can tell you from my own experience they are durable. Are they designed to take 170 pounds of dynamic pressure when you fall or put your head down and push through broken timber, no. When you are pushing through that thick timber you have to recognize when a branch is jabbing you, relieve that forward pressure and step a little more left. You do have to be more conscious of your surroundings. If you were looking for a durable, bust through thick brush without hesitation Pant than we highly recommend the Stormfront Pant. http://www.sitkagear.com/products/big-game/pants/stormfront-pant

Awesome minimalist design and cut but the durability... Well it's non existent. I'm a huge sitka fan, and really want to love this pant as much As the dewpoint jacket, but the fabric just isn't durable enough for a pant. Mine have probably 18-24 holes and I've only hunted in them for about 5 days on backcountry hunts where the weather turned south. I won't be looking to buy another pair.

When I first made the decision to go with the Dewpoint pant, it was based off Sitka's reputation (and my experience with other items). I was under the impression they would be waterproof, which they certainly are, but only when you can keep them from getting holes in them. Before purchasing, I read the bottom paragraph on the Dewpoint pant page, and C. Foss says, "bushwhacking through wet willows..." I need to stress, this is not the case! I have used them for two hunts (one sheep and one mule deer) and I have had to repair them 4 times, also need to add that I wasn't hard on them. I called CS as soon as I returned from my sheep hunt this past August to express my concern about how fragile the pants are and was told that normal wear is not covered. I just want people to really think if they need to save the few ounces over a more reliable pant. I really regret spending over $400cdn on these pants and want others to understand they are a very expensive item for the less than expected durability.
