(12 Reviews)

Our 3-layer GORE-TEX Dew Point Pant offers waterproof protection when you’re three days in and the clouds turn black. Minimally featured—including micro-taped seams and zero pockets—it’s made from a 20-denier nylon ripstop face with GORE® C-KNIT® backer technology for easy movement and packability in the mountains. Two-way side zips offer easy on/off and venting; the articulated fit won’t tug when you’re navigating rough country or hiking in the rain.

Very disappointed with the length. The Large Tall size needs to be about 2 inches longer. Pants are a little noisy but they are very light and pack down well. If they fit like the tall sizes of other Sitka products I would give them a 5.

Great rain pant if you want something pack-able. They are loud and I would only wear these in the rain when sound isn't an issue. Biggest problem is fit. If you are over 5'10' you'll likely need the large tall and people over 6'2" may find the large tall too short. When you first try them on they will appear to fit, but sit down and cross your leg and you will see how short they are.

I'm extremely disappointed in the durability of these pants. I live in Southeast Alaska where it's brushy and have used these pants on a few hunts. Each time I have worn these pants they have sustained one or more holes/tears from bushes. I honestly can't believe these are marketed as hunting pants unless the only research they did was having someone sit in a tree stand on a rainy day. Needless to say I'm out $300 bucks. If your going to be doing any kind of hiking during your hunt think twice before buying these overpriced paper bags.

Purchased these a few weeks back and have been very pleased. I’ve only had the chance to wear them 3-4 times but they’ve functioned flawlessly, especially when we caught the tip of the last hurricane. Wish I had these last spring summer. If you’re looking for a light and packable rain pant for moderate weather, this is it. The only downside is no pockets. The full leg zips give you easy access to your pants underneath but it would be great if they had two or three zippered pockets…

I have the old gen dew point and love them. The durability isn’t the greatest if your walking through heavily wooded areas. Was thinking about ordering the new ones and found they don’t have pockets. Why would you get rid of them. They’re one of my favorite things about the dew point. My current ones have two sets of waterproof zippers on each side. My garmin Montana 700 fits perfectly. I already carry enough on my upper body. I don’t want to unzip my pants just to get something out of my pocket. Hope they bring pockets back soon.

This is just a review on size. I'm 6'4" and weigh 205. I took my measurements and my waist measured 37" (when trying on sitka clothes a 34" fits my waist comfortably and I don't need a belt) my clothes I buy size 34 shorts or size 36 pants and use a belt because 34" pants are usually too tight everywhere else. My inseam is 36". i bought LT and they fit great around the waist. I can even put them on over another pair of pants and still fit good. The only thing that could make them better is if they were about an inch or two longer on the inseam, walking/still hunting they will work good and just standing they cover and go down onto my boot great; however, sitting, kneeling, or stepping high going over logs or up steep mountains the bottom of the pants do come up to the top of my hunting hiking boots or just above. The dew point LT pants inseam measures 34", if the tall size inseam was 35 or 36" i would give it 5 stars.

Love this our as an outer layer for snow or rainy conditions. I've been using them over the Mountain Pants for deep snow and temps ranging from 5-25°F. Wish they had some pockets but it’s fine unzipping and then unzipping again to use the Mountain Pant's pocket's when layering. Great pant!

I'm an avid backpacker and these pants are amazing! They fit over my hiking pants/shorts easily. They keep me dry and protect me from the elements. They're are also so lightweight which is crucial for a backpacker. I love vents in these pants too. I highly recommend them!

Loved everything about this pant....except the durability. We were hiking in the wet nearly every morning, so nearly every morning it was the Dewpoint pant over a baselayer. The fit was great, they were comfortable to walk in, light, fast drying, and did a great job of venting my sweat, and there was lots of it on our daily 1500'-2000' climbs. However, after one hunt, they have two good sized holes. Sure, I gave them a pretty good workout. There was lots of brush and some deadfalls, but I was purposefully careful on the deadfalls as my budget is small and I knew what these things cost. Listen, I get it, trying to design a pant that does everything this one does that I stated above, plus is packable, lightweight, AND durable is like trying to find a unicorn. I'm not sure there is anything else Sitka can do with this pant. But, I can't drop $300 for a new rain pant on every hunt. I guess in the future I'll have to deal with a bit more bulk and less breathability and just get a cheaper pair that is more durable.

Just got back from a moose hunt in New Foundland. It rains, drizzles, and fogs almost everyday. I have to say after doing a lot of research, I finally went with the Dew Point system. It was incredible. It really would have been miserable if I had gotten wet for the amount of hours I spent out in the field. It kept me dry in every BS. It also was very rugged. I walked through the thickest brush you could imagine for 5 straight days for 12 hours a day. It was impressive. Hope this helps you make a decision.

Great lightweight rain pants! I ordered the size large and they fit perfect over my size 36 R mountain pants. There is enough room for me to have my thick puffy pants on underneath them too. The built in belt is a great feature. My only complaint is I wish they had a single pocket that they could pack themselves into but that is a wish, not a deal breaker. These pack down extremely well and they weigh close to nothing.

Extremely Light, Easy to put on, great to store in pack. Love this system for wet/windy conditions. minor noise for Archery purposes, but not as loud as I thought it would be (Only minor Con). Still gets the job done well. Sitka continues to set the tone for hunting essentials. Cant wait enough good things.

Unpredictable: 18 Days in the Backcountry

Unpredictable. That’s how I’d describe my life as a freelance photographer and filmmaker. A lifelong thirst for bowhunting in the mountains, and tendency to say “yes” before asking questions, has landed me in a variety awe-inspiring locations and momentous misadventures. I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything, and they’ve always prepared me for going into another unknown.
