Why We Made This

Waterfowl hunters have a need for an all-encompassing pant that can work for the entire hunt. Most pants in this space have a poor fit or lack range of motion while trying to cover multiple weather windows. Our approach was to design an ultra-durable pant that could serve dual purposes–as durable outerwear and also an insulating layer in colder conditions–while still allowing for a superior range of motion. We included diagonal zip pockets on the thighs to grant easy access to essentials while sitting and a DWR finish resists light precipitation and prevents the face fabric from wetting-out. The Grinder pant can be worn as a standalone piece or easily layered into your waterfowl system for all-season hunting.

I really want to like these pants more than I do, I just can't really find a good purpose for them. I will wear them under my waders when its in the 45-60 degree range, but other than that, I really can't find their purpose. I have heard they are very durable & could be worn upland hunting, but personally, I don't see that. The material is too stretchy to be that durable.

I absolutely love these pants. I can wear them anytime, when duck hunting, deer hunting or just working around the house or in the fields. They are extremely comfortable and durable.

This is one of the most comfortable pairs of pants I own. Hunted in them this morning, 50 degrees in uninsulated waders with no issues. Then wore them to my sons Boy Scout event. Love this pair of pants! Great for hunting, scouting and other events!

I own way too much Sitka gear for the field and bought these Grinder Pants for a more casual environment. Best solid color pant in your lineup. Don't get me wrong I also own it in the camo colors. It is a shame though that you do not carry it in another solid color of two, pyrite would be awesome. Let's bring some more solid colors to the market.

These are my go to pants for chores around the marsh and field, and are unmatched for wearing under waders during early and mid-season hunts.

Have worn the grinder pants on several hunts this year and other than being a bit noise through the brush, they have done amazing! Walking through thick and thorny brush has had no effect on these pants. And are extremely comfortable for long hikes!

These pants are flat out amazing. Admittedly when I first got them, I didn’t see the full potential or really how amazing they were. For some reason I decided to keep them. After wearing them once, I never wanted to take them off. They are for slightly cooler temps. I’d say 60 degrees and below. They are comfy, well thought out, functional, and have a modern fit. They are different from any pants I own. Everyone needs a pair of pants like this. These pants only make me want to own more Sitka products. I’ve yet to see any other company or clothing manufacturer who puts so much thought into their garments. Oh, and the color is perfect. Goes with so much.

Great pant, comfortable, durable, and gets the job done. I have 3 pair, really like the solid colors for everyday use!

These pants are very well constructed. The 4 way stretch is super comfortable and doesn't hinder movement. Great for everyday wear as the fabric is very durable and abrasion resistant. The pants tend to be on the warmer side of typical everyday pants. The thigh pocket can be left open and used to dump heat if need be. One minor negative is the pants are quite a bit louder than expected but over all a great all around pant.
