Whitetail: Vegetated Terrain

ESW Pant  


A technical hunting pant ready to go to work in the whitetail woods. The durable four-way stretch polyester stands up to the brush but offers great breathability and stretch to make getting in and out of the stand a breeze while body-mapped mesh ventilation in the gusset and pockets keeps your scent and body temp low. For added stealth, we incorporated Permanent Polygiene® Odor Control Technology throughout plus cargo pockets that feature silent snaps and divided panels to prevent gear from rattling around.

Another great Sitka product. Material is incredibly lightweight and breathable. Pocket knife spot is great. Quiet snaps on all pockets. Perfect early season whitetail pant for SC. I do feel these pants run a bit small. I wear a 31 usually in Sitka pants and had to return these for the 32. 5'9" 165lb.

The pants were great - until I encountered some beggars lice. The pants were pretty much useless until I could buy a product to remove the burrs, and then the fabric was no longer smooth. Do not wear these if you have to track a deer or otherwise go off the beaten path.

I wore the pants, shirt and hat on a recent Nebraska hunt. The material is very comfortable in the heat, and except for the final sit, it even seemed to *generally* keep the mosquitoes at bay. (The final night I got crushed on my shoulders, but not in other spots.) My only complaint is that the material is not good with burrs. Not only do the burrs stick very easily, they are not easy to remove - especially without damaging the materials. After walking through a patch of the burrs the first night, the pants became useless. I had to pack them and will be trying to remove burrs from home.

Good pants, great early season stand pants when its still warm. I have the shirt also and the pants are just as good about keeping your body cool with the mesh located in key spots on the pants. These will work from dove season all the way through early elk season. They are not going to be a brush busting pair of pants as they are thin, but sitting in the stand, or fast hiking in warm weather these are your pants. Fit is true to size I am a 34w 36l, 6'3 210lbs.

I recently purchased these pants and at first sight they looked amazing. I wouldn’t change anything about these pants especially the pocket design. I’m 6’0 tall and I usually wear a 32” in the waist but I ordered a 32.5” in case I’m layering underneath. Still a little bit tighter than expected. Maybe they will break in and loosen up

Been waiting for Sitka to make some early season pants. These are awesome. Lightweight and great ventilation but still a sturdy pant. I’m normally a 34x32 and the 34R fit perfect with a good amount of stretch when walking and sitting. If they made these in solid colors, I’d buy every color. These will be perfect for early season whitetails in SC, but would also make the ultimate scouting pant and will be comfortable and cool in a dove field as well. Probably the most useful pants in the Sitka line as far as I’m concerned.
