I wore these pants on a hike the other day and couldn’t believe how comfortable they were best part is they are silent! I got within 30 yards of a doe and she had no clue I was there. From the hills to the house these pants are well worth it!

Great pants overall the reason I took away 1 star was the back pocket is not deep enough and my wallet keeps falling out. I would suggest they add a zipper to their back pocket and it would be a 5 star product

I got these pants back in April for work and they are the best pair of pants that I have bought. They are well worth the money spent. I work with athletes in a sports medicine setting so I am all over the place showing athletes how to perform movements and the pants give and move without worries of them tearing like a normal dress pant. I am going to buy a few more pairs once they come back in stock.

As with all other 50+ pieces of Sitka gear I have purchased, these pants fit the bill. They feel much more durable than the territory or ascent material. (which is also bulletproof) Like someone else mentioned, they have the feel of a carhart pant but with these, you have exceptional flexibility when squatting down or crawling under equipment. I have not tested in briars yet but they feel as though they will not be prone to snags/tears.

Fit: The ONLY thing I would caution is that these pants are a little bigger in the waste than the other 8 styles I have. Typically, I am a 34x34 and wish I had gone with a 32. Other than that? zero complaints.

These pants are great! I do facility maintenance and the stretch is an added bonus along with the knife pocket. I'm husky and wear a 37R, these fit perfect but only wish they didn't come in a 33 inseam, I am only 5"10 220Lbs. So they are really baggy. I can't pass up the comfort.

Bought two pairs last September. They have made all my other pants obsolete. Rugged, stretchy material. Has held up well with no pilling of the fabric either. They are nice enough that the wife doesn’t ask me to put something else on if we go out for dinner. I do wish they would add an upland version and add some other colors to the line. Get these pants!

From church to working in the at the farm... this are the best everyday pants ive ever had. That have a nice little stretch that allows me to do what I need to do while having a great look to them. Very comfortable fabric. The knife pocket is a great touch. I highly recommend these pants. Another great job by Sitka

By far the most comfortable work pants I have ever worn. I have several brands of work pants in the closet for working in the yard, on the farm, or at my shop, that is where they will stay, in the closet. Huge fan of these pants!!!

Perfect fit. True size! I am 5'10", 165lbs and I normally wear 32r. While sometimes I have to order a 33 from some brands, these pants are a perfect 32x32! I wear these daily and they are perfect for outdoors too. Great fabric will a little stretch to them. the knife pocket does a good job at keeping the knife snug. I recommend these to anyone wanting durable everyday pants.

Overall I am happy with the pants. They do remind me of a good fitting pair of old carharts. They sit a little higher on the waist than most of sitkas other pants. Overall they are true to size. I’m 5’11” and 195 and a 34 regular guys well. They seem durable but that is yet to be determined. I bought these for work/farm pants and my only complaint is that I wish they would put a film or rubber strip in the waistband to keep your t shirt from coming untucked. I have never really had this issue with any other pants, but no matter what I do in these pants, the back of my shirt eventually comes untucked from bending, squatting or kneeling. I’ve resorted to tucking into the underoos. I do more construction, wood cutting, and tractor work than anything. I find myself reaching for my grinder pants and jet stream jacket more than anything else I own

Absolutely awesome pants! As stated in another review, it would be great if Sitka made these pants in an upland hunting version by adding the same material found on the knees and seat of the Timberline Pant to the lower legs of these pants. I know many hunters that would love it if Sitka offered upland specific hunting gear!

My new favorite pants!! A friend asked me what was the big draw for buying these pants and the only thing I could think of was it was like a brand new pair of 10 year old carhartts. Imagine your favorite pair of tough jeans, finally broke in and not so tough on your skin. The back forty pant is my new go to for travel, work and play... if only I can convince the wife to buy me all the available colors...

Absolutely love these pants. I will probably use them for upland hunting under my chaps. Nice finish on them makes them more purr resistant than other Sitka pants. Combine these with the abrasion resistant material on the Timberline pants and Sitka could have a true upland pant. Great as a work pant for around the ranch. Looking forward to the insect-repellant version of these pants coming out next year.

The Back Forty Pant is the perfectly designed pant for guides and everyday use. The fabric used is very comfortable (with some stretch) and the pants fit true to size. The bottom of the pant is constructed perfectly to fit over your shoes or boots, but not to big, where your pants drag the ground. I am a big fan of the knife pocket and the cargo pocket on side is big enough to fit my IPhone 7 Plus with Phoneskope adapter attached. I highly recommend this pant to anyone looking for a very versatile and comfortable everyday pant.

Love the way these pants feel and can't wait to put them to use! These pants can be worn for working or for casual wear because they look great! The only reason I am not giving it the full 4 stars is because the pants ran a little small than the size listed.

Owning the Off-Season

A good coach once told me that “being lucky” is actually just being prepared. It was a valuable lesson and one that also applies to the backcountry. Now is the time to prepare with a purpose, not the week before the season starts.
