Dakota Pant  


The Dakota Pant is ideal for waterfowlers hunting through the mid to late season. This pant is durable enough to wear as an outer layer in the Fall, and cozy enough to wear as a mid-layer when winter truly takes hold.

These bad boys right here are the cats meow. I wear a 36 but had to go up to a 38 because they were very tight. Im a farmer in Michigan and wear these pants all the time. Insulated for the cold mornings and with the thigh zippers they dump excess heat fast. When it gets warmer in the middle of the day i leave the zippers undone so i don’t get too hot. My favorite pants made by Sitka that I own.

The Dakota pants are simply the best hunting pants I have ever worn. Very warm when the temperature drops but zippered pockets allow for ventilation if necessary. I have worn these beneath my waders and as a stand alone for deer hunting. These pants look and fit great, cant say enough about them.

I did not have these pants for the start of the season, so I only have about 15 days of hunting in them. By far the best waterfowl pant I have ever worn! I hunt in Colorado, where weather conditions change all the time. Teen’s in mornings with high 40’s even 50’s in the afternoon, high winds, dead calm blue bird days, some rain and one day of driven wet snow. They work great in all conditions, I also wear them under waders, very comfortable, these will be my go to pant even for late season. My only complaint is they could use suspenders like the Mountain pant. Would be 5 stars if they did. I love my Sitka gear!

These are truly fantastic pants. I had ordered a Dakota Hoody for my son a year ago and really liked the fabric. When I saw pants made from the same fabric I ordered them immediately. They did not disappoint. They are VERY comfortable, and depending on what you layer underneath, should be very versatile. So far I’ve worn them without another layer and once with a light wool layer. I almost wish I’d ordered the solid color so I could play golf in then when it’s cold.

These are the PERFECT pant for waterfowl hunting. They are perfect to wear alone in the early season and I ordered a size up so I could throw some long johns underneath when its cold. After chasing down geese its easy to dump the heat with the zippers. I have worn them under waders and its like wear sweatpants.

The Sitka quality you expect, but perhaps not the Sitka sizing you expect. Think "heavyweight Grinders", but they run large. I have several pairs of Timberlines in 34R, two pairs of Grinders in 34R, and one pair of Ascents in 34R. Those all fit like they were tailored for me. The Dakotas in 34R that I just ordered, on the other hand, are considerably larger and longer. Suspenders would keep them up, but they aren't made with the suspender loops of the other pants - so I end up with a belt cinched a little too tight to be comfortable or to look good. Consider sizing down, or at least leave the tags on until you're sure you're happy with the fit so that you can return them if necessary.

Absolutely the best mid season pant! I put them to the test this morning here in Oklahoma. It's not even the warmth that i like so much, it's the comfortability!!! You will not be disappointed in these!

Wore these pants for a week long snow goose/dark goose/duck hunt in Saskatchewan Canada. Hunted harvested grain and pea fields. Concealment could not have been better. Absolutely perfect pared with the Dakota Hoodie. Perfect weight for the crisp Saskatchewan mornings. Very comfortable and fit true to size. Another great piece by Sitka!

These are a great mid season pant. They are as comfortable as the gradient but not as warm, they are perfect for setting up decoy spreads in the cool mornings or wearing around camp. Perfect if you are looking for something between the Grinder and the Gradient.

I could not wait to get my hands on these. They are heavier than the grinder, but equally as comfortable. I really like the solids, as they have become part of my everyday wardrobe. I can see me wearing these Dakota pants, with a core heavyweight bottom, and never being fazed by cold weather again.
