These pants are great for early to mid season and as a layering piece into late season. They do run smaller. Im 5'10 195 and I typically wear a 34 in pants but in Sitka gear I wear a 36. I love these pants. I would recommend these over the ESW pants because I feel like you can get more use out of these than the ESW pants.

The Equinox pant is the most comfortable and versatile hunting pant I have ever owned. The pants allow free movement, breath well but also keep out a chilly breeze well. They also are much easier to remove burrs, stickums, ect. I wear them from early season to November in Ohio.

By far my favorite pair of sitka pants (I have the apex, traverse and stratus pants too). These are super comfy like all their pants but these offer tons of storage in the pockets. I hang and hunt often so having straps and gear hangers in my pockets on the way up is standard. The material has a stretch to it and also has a belt included which is amazing! The best part is these are nearly burr proof, where I hunt there are those small triangle shaped burrs everywhere though I think my apex pants have harvested most of them but not these pants, the burrs mostly stay off these and if they do stick they are easily removed. I wish all of their pants were made from this material. Oh and they are dead silent too!

I love these pants for the price. If you are looking for a cheap outer pant for being to mid or even late these are perfect. They have no isolation what so ever but if you get them big you can layer under and they keep you warm because the wind and the water don’t get through these. Lots of pockets and they are super light and comfortable. They are also nice because it is not fleece so nothing sticks to them.

The Equinox pants are the perfect early to mid-season pant, as I wear them until it gets into the low 50’s. I am normally a size 34, but wear a 36 because they do run a little tight for my liking if you get your exact size. I highly suggest getting them.

Ive used these pants in Central texas guiding hunters in the early heat throughout the season into the cold season with a layer underneath. Quiet, comfy and durable. Ive used them in south texas early season and late season and had the same results. While guiding in Natchez Mississippi at Giles Island, i used them on almost every hunt. Early hot season for bow hunting into the late season when it was colder in tree or box stand they are great. Roomy pockets and quite material make them a great pant to go to. Another pair would not hurt.....

Wore the Elevated 2 pattern for a Maine black bear hunt this week with temps from 70s-80 degrees. With a light weight hoodie on as well. The pants pockets were awesome for storing my phone while sitting down making it easy access and to fill the other pockets with my gloves and rope. These pants kept me from sweating unlike a pair of jeans. Maybe add a two way zipper down the legs like the bibs for late season hunting I think would be helpful in keeping cool. The bear I killed came down wind of me and had no idea I was there till the shot.

The Sitka equinox pant are the premier hunting pant. The durability is just as good as a pair of work jeans, the comfort level is through the roof, and the pockets are a dream. First, I have taken these pants through thick underbrush, briars, and slid the backside through the dirt and rocks and found the pant to hold up extremely well. Second, the pant is comfortable, the pant does not ride up or bind. I have spent many days walking several miles a day in these pants and they are just as comfortable when you’ve walked 5 miles as when you put them on. They breathe really well and will not leave you sweaty and stinky like a denim material. Finally, the equinox pant offers strategically placed pockets that will hold everything you need. I’ve never seen a more well thought out pant. The pockets are plentiful and deep, and there is not a single pocket that lacks functionality. Therefore, I would recommend the Sitka equinox pant to anyone. The pant is rugged, comfortable, and functional. Great work Sitka.

Absolutely cannot say enough about these pants. They are by far the best piece of clothing I have ever owned. They are comfortable, don't ride up, legs don't slide up when you bend over, and they help keep your shirt tucked in. I have worn them so much since I got them last spring! Fishing, hiking, hunting, lounging, and even sleeping in them! Extremely tough as well, thorns won't tear them up, but they will leave little scratches and loose strings, but no holes!. Don't hesitate with these pants, it will be the best money you've ever spent on clothing.

These pants should be illegal, they are ridiculous.

The temps have range from 40-70 (F) and these have been so comfortable....and oh yah the pockets are nice too, if I could get away with wearing these to the office, I just might.

I Should've considered high end hunting clothing much earlier in my hunting career! I'm about 6' and 330 lbs so naturally most brands don't fit. I convinced myself to try Sitka and all i can say is WOW. I ordered the early season Equinox pants and jacket and the fit is excellent! As a big guy its nice to find a pair of pants that fit comfortably in the thigh and groin area. The four way stretch paired with the stretch fabric has to be the best feature of this combo. If you are of bigger build you need to consider any Sitka line.

I bought the Equinox pants right before spring turkey here in Oklahoma.. Needing a light weight early season pant I thought I would try Sitka.. I know these were designed for a stand hunter and or blind. But I run and gun turkey hunting.. And I took these pants to hell and back. Then two more times.. I mean straight through the briers and brambles... Was honestly astonished on how well they took the abuse.. Literally tearing through the thorn bushes and I haven't ripped a single hole in them. So don't think these are just a pant to set in a blind or tree stand cause they can handle what ever you have to go through. The fit and comfort of these pants is something I'm very pleased with... I lounge in these dudes constantly.. Another thing I'm very pleased with is the pattern.. If it would have been fall deer instead of spring turkey I could have cashed in 3 of my 4 doe tags in a couple days.. While easing my way down a trail at about 30-35 yards I had a doe and fawn walking straight at me. Naturally I came to a motionless stance.. That doe and fawn closed the gap to 15 yards before she blew at me.. They are a must have pant. Hats off to the Sitka design team on the Equinox pants and the whitetail pattern.

These are my favorite pair of Sitka pants. They truly are as comfortable as sweats but somehow manage to hold up against thorn bushes, briars and whatever else you might encounter. Great for the early season alone or mid season with some layering. I also wear them walking to my stand in the late season and then throw my fanatic bibs over them once I get there. Not only does this help to avoid overheating but it also eliminates the issue of briars and stickers loading up on the fanatics.

I purchased the Equinox pant as a lightweight early to mid season pant, and they have not let me down. The material is very durable for its weight, and despite being an early season pant, it still manages to hold its own in cooler temperatures. It is definitely the heaviest of the three pants I have (Ascent and Grinder). I like the two zip thigh pockets for stowing various items. I took off a half star only due to the button pockets popping open on me occasionally when traversing terrain or sitting/standing. May just be an isolated issue. Outstanding pant, very comfortable, quiet, and durable.

If you're heading into the deer woods pre-rut, you're going to want the equinox set. Absolutely perfect for early season stand hunting. It breathes, flexes, and protects better than anything I have ever tried. Pant bottoms damp from sneaking through tall grass or a standing corn field early in the morning? No worries, the equinox will dry before the sun comes up. I love the entire whitetail series, but as far as comfort, the equinox is the benchmark.

I start my hunting season in the middle of August for early archery season chasing antelope and then hunt until the first of December of our rifle season here in Montana. This year I missed 4 days of hunting total between all season. I wore these pants every day. I experienced hot, dry temperatures, along with freezing cold rain and snow and I was not disappointed to say the least with these pants. They are comfortable, flexible, and durable. I would put long johns on underneath them and hunt in below zero temperatures, but I was hiking while doing this. These pants blew my mind! I love how quite they are and how deep the pockets are. They offer many pockets that are in ideal locations whether it be for a range finder, GPS, or extra gloves or a beanie. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE PANTS!
