Wanted to make a few hunts before leaving a review. I can honestly say i’ve put these to the test, in a variety of climates and conditions; and these are the best hunting pants i’ve owned. Quite material, and zippers. All around perfect pants. Would Definitely recommend.

Might be my new favorite piece! Wore these down to around 35° with no base layer and stayed warm, layered under the Stratus Bib down to 17° and again, stayed warm and comfortable. These work really well for walking to the stand since the outer material is slick and will not pick up burrs like the quieter materials used on the bibs. Not to mention the inner fleece makes them feel like pajama pants! The tapered leg is great for going inside rubber boots 10/10. If these came in solids, I’d wear them all winter long!

For the most part these are a solid pair of pants during those colder sits. This would absolutely be a 5 star review if not for 2 details that I feel should have been a part of these pants. The first being belt loops instead of the built in belt, the pants fit a little lose and the belt doesn't always hold its tension. The second would be the addition of rear pockets which is not as big of a deal I'm sure for most people, I just prefer to always keep my wallet in the back pocket for organization.

I love these pants! True to size. Very comfortable. Can wear alone or as a layer when really cold. Wore them over mid weight fleece to my stand, then put on my incinerator bibs and stayed warm in low teen temps.

5’11” 215 XL fit perfect. These are one of the best pieces of gear that I own. Great for early/mid season as an outer wear piece. Then fantastic for insulation when the temps drop. I hope Sitka makes more colors for everyday uses as well.

EXCELLENT MID SEASON PANT!. Super soft and the lining is awesome. These will be a nice mid layer pant when I move into the late season fanatic bib weather. I like the built in belt for tightening. Never going to forget to grab it on the way out. And if you hunt with tall rubber boots, the legs will slide right inside since they are tapered. But they are SUPER COMFORTABLE!!! Sitka needs to make these in a solid color just to lounge around the house and watch football in on a cooler day (for those of us who keep the heat lower to afford more hunting gear HAHA). The outer material is very soft and quiet. I wore these as stand alone pants on a recent hunt with a lightweight (moisture wicking only) base layer in a 40 degree weather wind wind blowing 20mph and they worked fine. If you are looking for a good pant for that 35-50 degree period and don't want to layer merino/outer pant combo, this could be your ticket. Additionally, I cannot imagine getting cold wearing these under something like the Fanatic/Incinerator bib down to 0F. I bet you could slap these under the Stratus bib and with a merino layer, might be able to get low to sub 20F and be comfortable.

These are really wonderful pants. I don't need a base layer under them for most hunts in the early and mid seasons, and once it gets cold I wear them under the Stratus bibs. For frigid temps I layer them over heavyweight bottoms. My only knock is the length. I'm a shorter guy, and I really wish Sitka would start offering "short" options in their pants for those of us with shorter inseams. The pants bunch up almost all the way down my legs due to the length. Other than that, they are perfect. Light, warm, quiet, and soft.

These have got to be the most comfortable hunting pants ever. As soon as you slip your legs in you feel like you are wearing pajama pants! Very warm as well. I live and hunt in Michigan and these pants are my go to from early season to late season as a base layer. I’ve worn just these pants in 35 degree weather and stayed plenty warm, I’m sure if I added a base layer thermal I could wear them into the high 20’s. Definitely need these in your arsenal if you haven’t bought them yet!

I am 6' tall with a 36" waist and weigh about 220lbs. I ordered the Equinox Midi Pant Optifade Elevated II in a Large and they fit perfectly. They are the right fit to be layered under bibs or waders but not too tight where they are uncomfortable or impact movement and slid right into my muck boots without bunching up or being uncomfortable. I went whitetail hunting with just the core lightweight bottoms and these pants on 1/8/22 and it was about 30 degrees with a 10mph wind and I sat for over 5 hours an only got slightly chilled towards the end of the hunt. If I brought my bibs or waders I would have been incredibly warm.

These pants were definitely worth the wait. They are super warm and comfortable. I love how the legs taper for easy access into your boots and for layering. I wear these as a layering piece and as a stand alone pair of pants. I even wear them around the house when its really cold outside. I sized up and got an xl. Im 5'10 195 and usually size up in Sitka pants. I might could get away with a L but I didnt want to have to return them and wait for another size to be sent back. They are a little big in the waist but with the belt I can wear them very comfortably. These are a necessity for your whitetail kit if you're hunting really cold weather.

Simply amazing. Period. I hate layers. For years I dealt with three, four, five layers to stay warm when wearing most of my hunting outfits. My Walls set, best cold/frigid weather outfit you could buy in 2000... but don't walk in it. Perfect long-sit gear, snow won't melt lying on it. Now? Three layers down to "Feels like 15F". I wore these new midi pants over the heavyweight Merino base layers from 45-55F and they were great. Below 45, add the Stratus bibs all the way to this season's lowest "Feels like 15". Very comfortable, warm, flexible, great boot cut makes the boot on/off process simple. If these came in solids I'd wear them a lot more often in the house or just mucking around outside in the cold. Possibly one of the most important lower body pieces you can and should buy!

These pants are fantastic! I debated for about a week on whether or not I wanted them and can say I have never looked back since getting them. I’ve worn them as an outer layer with heaveyweight core bottoms on low 40's evening sits, and I’ve paired them with heavyweight core bottoms and stratus bibs for low 20's morning sits. They have performed amazing in all situations. I really like the fit on them. They are loose enough to allow a baselayer underneath without bunching it up, but are snug enough to fit inside my lacrosse boots comfortably. These are my new go to pants for anything in the mid-50's and below. Won’t leave camp with out them. Highly recommend!

I have been very pleasantly satisfied with these pants. I have always liked the quiet face material, but these pants have a few other assets which have put them into the heavy rotation this fall. We've had some of that weather in the 28-50 "feels like" range lately here in Nebraska, and I've worn these with the heavier core bottoms and been plenty warm for my usual 3-3.5 hour sits on stand. I like the tapered legs (something I wasn't sure of when I purchased); I can step right into your usual rubber/neoprene type knee boots with zero issues. They also stay put, so walking in those boots doesn't cause bunching and it also helps quiet those style boots down during the walk in (if you wear those boots, you know how they can be noisy as they flex depending on what is worn inside. These pants will NOT fit outside your boots, but as a whitetail guy who puts in 80-100 hunts most season, I don't really want that in most cases anyway. Warmer than I figured, and ultra quiet. Pockets are about 75% the overall capacity of the usual pockets on Sitka pants but that's what your pack is for anyway. There is plenty of room for the essentials. A great new addition to the Sitka line.

This will be a perfect early-mid season pant for me and also a great mid layer under my Fanatic bibs. I love the material and the range of motion with the pant is awesome, no restrictions of movement at all. I am 5'10 with a 32" waist and 185 lbs....I went with the Medium and the length is perfect, but the waist is a bit snug. This will not be an issue for me because I prefer a snug fit for layering purposes but if you do not like a snug fit I recommend going with the Large.
