Why We Made This

Waterfowl hunters have a need for an early to mid-season pant that they can build a system around. Most pants in this space have a poor fit or poor range of motion while trying to cover two weather windows. Our approach was to design an ultra-durable pant that could serve dual purposes–as a durable outerwear and also an insulating layer in colder conditions–while still allowing for a superior range of motion. The diagonal zip pockets on the thighs grant easy access to essentials while sitting as well as an alternate venting option. The DWR finish resists light precipitation and prevents face fabric from wetting-out.

Features & Benefits

Diagonal Thigh Zip Pockets

The Diagonal diagonal thigh zip pockets offer security for small essentials, easy access from the seated position and additional ventilation when necessary.

Low-Profile Belt System

The low-profile belt system keeps the pant comfortably in place , even when you weighted down the pockets with shells.

Articulated Patterning

The fit is athletic with tapered legs and a low-profile waist that won’t bunch or chafe under waders. An offset waist button further reduces bulk when layering.

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.
