Stormfront Pant [NEW]
The perfect partner to the Stormfront Jacket, the Stormfront Pant provides a critical shield against a saturated mother earth by utilizing GORE-TEX® laminate and is also durable enough to last above the timberline.
- GORE-TEX® Fabric
- Full Length Side Zips
- Articulated Patterning
- Internal Belt System
- Rugged 3 Layer Hard Shell
- DWR Finish
- Micro Taped Seams
20.0 oz. ; Large
Completely redesigned for 2013, the Stormfront Pant is built for hunters and guides in sopping coastal regions who literally live in their rain gear. Constructed from a rugged three-layer GORE-TEX® Hardshell fabric, this is the most durable and abrasion resistant rain jacket in our line. It is ideal for extended wet-weather hunts in the thick, unforgiving willows of moose and brown bear country.
The uninsulated Stormfront Pant breathes well in mild temperatures, but it’s fit to accommodate layers from the Kelvin Series underneath, so it can be used well into the coldest, most brutal months of far northern winters. All zippers are welded and watertight. Full side zips make for easy on and off when changing underlayers. Two zippered hip pockets, quiet snap cargo pockets, and zippered cargo pockets cache your necessities and keep them dry. Dual zipper fly, built-in, low-profile nylon belt, and included suspenders keep the pant comfortably aloft. Adjustable cuffs allow you to cinch the pant over your boots and shingle water away from your feet.
Reserved for extended periods of time in the most extreme, wet weather conditions, the Stormfront is our most bombproof and livable rain pant.

This is truly a very solid pair of rain pants. A definite must have for anyone planning on being out in nasty weather for extended periods of time. I have put these pants to the test from Prince of Wales Island to Kodiak Island Alaska and many places in-between and they have out-performed anything else I have worn in the field to date. The full length side zippers are great for quickly donning the pants on/off without removing any gear you’re already wearing, including boots. This is a major plus when it’s been raining on/off for several days and everything around you is soaked. The side zippers are also crucial in venting off excess heat from over exertion or when there is a break in the wet weather. The suspenders are a must and effectively keep the pants around your waist where they belong. The anti-slip backing on the inside waist of the pants and backs of the suspenders really help at keeping a shirt tucked in and suspenders in-place over your shoulders. The suspenders are also designed to have such a light foot print that you don’t even know you’re wearing them yet they’re tough enough to handle quite a bit of abuse. The many pockets are well placed and can hold quite a lot of gear. I would have to agree with other reviews on the belt being somewhat annoying due to it being sewn into the pants. Seems like standard belt loops and a regular belt would have worked well here. Ounce counters beware, these are not the lightest pants out there but in my opinion are well worth the added weight when it comes to durability and staying dry. I have tried the competitions version of light yet tough and they failed miserably. I would warn that the material is loud when walking and moving through underbrush and branches so it may not be the best choice for hunts that require complete silence. Sitka has addressed this issue with their Whitetail line of rain gear. The Gore-Tex material is tough as nails and the taped seams are put together very well. Sitka has put a lot of attention to detail in these pants which is what one would expect for a top of the line piece of equipment such as this. I would definitely recommend this piece of rain gear for any serious outdoor person who wants to stay dry in extreme wet conditions.

Living in Kodiak we get to spend some time in our rain gear and the Stormfront Pant keeps us warm and dry even when subjected to consecutive days of wind and rain. Pros: Warm and Dry, Excellent Fit, Tough enough to handle Alders, Salmon Berry bushes, Devils Club, and late night fleshing chores over your knee. Thank you Sitka for the Cargo Pockets and their little zippered friends. I use them both everyday. The cinch on the lower leg does well when matched with the stormfront gaiter making stream crossings a breeze. Full length leg zippers make dumping heat a cinch. Cons: The nylon belt is sewed in the rear to prevent it from sliding out, but this causes the buckle to be way off center when tightened. I'm sure this would vary depending on the person, but that's how it works for me and is slightly annoying. They are not the lightest rain pant in the line, but the added extras/conveniences added are worth it IMO. Overall an excellent addition to anyones system if you enjoy staying warm and dry when subjected to multiple days of wind and rain.

Let me begin with the question everyone asks. Are the Storefront pants and jacket worth it? Absolutely. I am an upland hunter, which is not a Sitka category, but hey, we have to stay warm and dry just like the big game guys. There are three things that should be mentioned. First, the pants and jacket are 100% waterproof. They will keep you dry in rain or snow. Second, they will keep you warm when used with a layering system (I prefer wool). I am talking about extreme conditions of cold and wind. Their wind breaking properties are phenomenal. Third, they are tougher than anyone would have any right to expect. It's rain gear not chaps. Nevertheless, I have worn them in thick brush with no problems. Last fall I took my dog into really thick stuff to find a buddy's downed pheasant. I would have had no reasonable complaint if the pants ripped. But they came through without a scratch. Well worth the money, and Sitka you have a world of upland hunters to market to.

First off I would like to compliment Sitka's customer service. I received these as a gift, but in the wrong size. I sent in the pants and got the right size back in no time! Aside from that, I can say from experience that these are the real deal. Used them on a seven day elk hunt in Idaho where I practically lived in rain gear. Wore these pants every day, rain, snow, or shine. My buddy had the same pants, and we both agreed they were an amazing piece of equipment. I also love these pants for coyote hunting, they keep you dry stand after stand. You won't regret purchasing these.

I love Sitka, and I realize nothing is invincible; but after a couple days on a Dall hunt in AK, inhad several tears in my seat and an inseam rip in my crotch. I plan on returning to sitka in hopes of getting a new pair. I may try the downpour pant for archery hunts anyway.
