For hot weather or active hunting, the Ascent Pant is a mainstay of hunters across the West. 

Big Terrain or Hot Weather
Lightweight and ultra-breathable like the rest of the Ascent line, the Pant features a quick-drying, 4 way stretch brushed nylon fabric and anti-stink Polygiene® treatment to keep you cool when the heat is on. The Ascent Pant expels heat and perspiration to keep you comfortable as you chew through the early season miles.

Scrambling or bushwhacking through blown down timber requires zero restrictions. The Ascent Pant's low profile waist band won’t chafe or bunch, and articulated knees are shaped for hunters on the move. Knee pad pockets offer optional protection if desired, and all pockets are mesh backed for added ventilation, and a gusseted crotch provides full range of movement.

These pants were one of the two new items from Sitka that I was the most excited about. I checked them out at the Western Hunt Expo and pre-ordered them when they hit the market. I was not disappointed. I wore them daily for two weeks while guiding Colorado wilderness archery hunts, they held up flawlessly. They held up to being chased out of a calling location by a moose, I was scrambling over blow down timber and caught them on a dead branch, I ended up with a pretty good raspberry and bruise on my thigh but the pants held up, couldn't even tell I'd put them through the ringer. One day I got caught in the rain without my rain pants, they did get wet but as soon as the squall moved out they dried in less than 30 minutes. Very pleased with this product.

These pants are absolutely phenomenal, being a hunting guide in Arizona I spend over a hundred days a year in the field. I typically guide coues whitetail hunts, and anyone who knows these deer knows how unforgiving this country is. I shred clothing quite often (usually in a day they have substantial threads which have been pulled loose from the thorny undergrowth). I used these pants for the first time today, not a single bit of wear after hiking through multiple cat claw thickets, and they were the most comfortable pants I've worn to boot! Sitka knocked it out of the park with these pants!!!The only cons I have are that there are no butt pockets, which I like even on technical hunting pants, and that they have integrated pockets for knee pads, which might be nice for some people, but I don't use them, and it took me awhile to figure out what the extra thick fabric on my shin was (to be fair I couldn't feel the pockets or the extra fabric wearing them, only when I reached down) obviously these are very minor annoyances and I am not only ordering a second pair in subalpine I am also ordering a pair of the solid color pants because if I can get used to the no back pockets I will be wearing these around town traveling, or when I want to look less like a hunter when I'm scouting.This is my favorite hunting related product I've tried in a few years (and I'm a bit of a gear head)

Spent 8 days at 9500-10,000 feet chasing velvet mule deer in 80-90 degree temps. The pants performed flawlessly. They breath amazingly, dry quickly, and the Polygiene is an awesome addition to keep scent down. I was impressed at how tough they were while crashing through rocks and thick brush with no snags or tears. The rubber waist lining is always awesome, keeping everything tucked in and where it needs to be. Awesome pants and I'm glad I bought them.

I purchased this for a 12 day antelope and mule deer hunt in the high desert of Arizona during the last week of August through the first week of September. Intense sun and highs into the low 90's were encountered daily. Lots of hiking and belly-crawling were encountered. The polygiene treatment worked perfectly though there was not a lot of odor in the other pants. The Ascent's material is very durable and - more impressively - seemed to repel dirt. The knee pad pockets are a huge plus for me though at this price it seems ridiculous to not include them (I used some from an old pair of Mountain Pants). Speaking of pockets, the Ascents could use one or two more. Some will probably comment that the new material is loud but I managed to stalk within 40 yards of a bedded mule deer buck while wearing them so no complaints here.
