Great early season pants and for when those warm days come late season. Super comfortable and tough.

So far.. Only 1 season of use... I have really enjoyed wearing these in the early season as well as mid season with sweats underneath. They are light and stretchy with lots of mobility. Perfect weight for hot sits. They also have quiet zippers which I like.

Exactly what I was looking for! Lightweight but sturdy. Super comfortable with the most thought out features and none of the fluff. I love the flat zippered pockets. I always hate bulky cargo pockets but these flat zippered pockets are perfect. Fit is excellent. I’m 6’2” and 225lbs. The 36T fit great. Not baggy but just enough room for a base layer to go underneath if it turns cold. Highly recommend!

LOVE these pants! Look good, feel good, stretchy so they don't bind, and super comfortable. Great walking through brush, because they are thin I could feel a few pokes but none of the burrs stuck to them at all. I like the pocket layout a lot better than my Dakota pants. I wear the Traverse pants until it gets below 50 degrees, then switch to my Dakota pants. Honestly, I might buy a solid color and wear them as everyday pants as well...

If I could rate these pants as 0 I would. I hunted with them for less than 15 days in BC Canada and I have about 10 holes in them. If you walk in grass that has light moisture you will be soaked. When I enquired about the product quality they informed I should look at purchasing a more durable product. I’m not impressed when a company won’t stand behind their products. I would suggest purchasing another brand of pants these are very low quality.

Just returned from elk hunting in Colorado. The Traverse pants exceeded my expectations. Lightweight, breathable, durable, and they dried quickly. The area I hunted at was full of burrs and thistles and nothing stuck to my pants. A separate pair of rain pants I wore was covered in burrs and stickers within the first hundred yards of walking. I had to spend hours removing everything. However, the Traverse pants allowed me to go anywhere without worrying about the hassle of burrs sticking to my clothing. Well done.

I am very pleased with these pants. I am 6'2 190 and normally a 34/L in all Sitka pants. I got the 34 and the fit is good although I need a belt with these if I have anything in the pockets or plan to walk a long distance. These are very comfortable and I have been wearing them around the house (I work from home) and to do trail camera checks. I think they are gradually becoming more quiet. They are not as quiet as my Equinox (2020 version), but they are more than adequate for stationary hunting. Very good pants for casual or hunting use and I will be buying more colors/patterns.

These pants are not that quiet. Other than that they're awesome, very comfortable, fit great, and seem durable. Easily would be 5 stars if Sitka didn't advertise them as being quiet. They aren't too loud and you can definitely make it work, but I have definitely worn much quieter pants.

Excellent early season pant. Out of the box they felt amazing and I have archery hunted with them a few times now in South Dakota and they are super comfortable and quiet. A couple reviews question the quietness, but they are plenty quiet unless you are constantly rubbing your legs together in the tree stand. I have not tested longevity yet, but I am hoping they last a long time.

I am 6’0 and 170 lbs and the 32T fit great. I struggle to find pants that fit very well and these are exceptional. This is my first pair of Sitka pants and I am sold.

Thank you Sitka

I've owned a lot of brands, styles, and designs of pants in 21yrs of bowhunting. The traverse pants are my favorite I've ever owned. I fell in love with them upon instantly opening them up. The fit, cut, movement, and quietness of the fabric is what made my mind up without a doubt. I see some reviews saying can't use these pants for stalking bc their loud? I disagree with that. I'm really looking at long-term use with them. Very impressed.

Out of the box this pant is not the quietest. It also does not have any kind of insulation in it so if you plan on wearing it late into season beware. I am 6'2 ~185 and the 32T fits me great. I will compare the waist to a skinny jean fit and then becomes baggy towards the bottom similar to boot cut jeans. In Missouri I use it for bow season in October and can extend that into November depending on temps. I would recommend this pant if you are looking for a bow season pant paired with the fanatic hoody and the traverse hoody as a pack in.

I really like the features of the pants and the fit. My issue was I put them on and walked around in them and they are not even close to quiet. There is no way I would wear these to sneak in on an animal. If they were quiet then I would have kept them.

This is the very first item I’ve ever bought from Sitka and I like these pants but I also do not. From the very first time I put them on my feet got stuck in them, they are moderately rough but they seem to catch the material very easily causing the inside material to pill and actually pool threads. I’ve never had this issue before. Spending this much money and having this issue makes me wonder if I dare try them in the woods and if I should send them back.
