Sitka Gear Grinder Camo Hunting Pants

Sitka has put itself at the top of the industry when talking comfortable and dependable hunting gear.  The Grinder Pant hits all the needs of a hunter, regardless of the season or game of choice.  The thing that stands out most to me is the extreme comfort these camo hunting pants offer.  The polyester stretch weave adds mobility and flexibility.  The vents are easily left open on those hot early season days that seem to drag out a little too long, but they are warm and comfortable enough to wear as layering under your waders later in the season when temperatures drop.  The angled pockets are a nice touch providing easy front pocket access.  Really a solid all around camouflage pants option by Sitka Gear.

Pros: 

  • These are the most comfortable hunting pants I have ever worn and it is not even close.
  • Breathable, lightweight, and water resistant.
  • Available in Optifade waterfowl, Optifade Timber, Mud, and Dirt, there is a camo pattern for any situation.
  • The vents make early season comfortable when the temperature rises.

Cons:

  • Cost, and I say this tentatively due to how great of a product it really is.  Ranging anywhere from $120-190 depending on size and camo pattern, they are a bit on the pricey side.  This is a product that saves money more long term rather than short term.


Sitka Gear Delta Hunting Pants

This product is really an incredible do-it-all hunting pants option.  The GORE-TEX laminate shell provides 100% waterproofing which is important regardless of the type of hunting you are doing.  The polyester stretch woven fabric provides mobility and comfort that is unmatched.  The full zip sides and removable suspender belt take these camo hunting pants over the top, allowing them to be worn over additional layers for additional warmth late season or if you just need the additional waterproofing when the hunt calls for it.  Front zip pockets offer plenty of space and security while in the field and the elastic cuffs on the ankles keep them snug and prevent additional wear and tear.

Pros:

  • 100% waterproof GORE-TEX laminate shell
  • Full side zips, and removable suspenders
  • The comfort and durability are really unmatched here.

Cons:

  • Would like to see more camo options.
  • They aren’t cheap!


Badlands Hybrid Camo Pants

Badlands really knocked it out of the park with this pair of camo hunting pants.  These pants are aimed at providing durability, warmth, as well as scent masking ability.  The softshell exterior is reinforced with keprotec kevlar in high stress areas, such as the knees, giving these pants impressive durability.  The hex-fleece interior allows for increased body heat retention, providing exceptional warmth.  Each leg is equipped with thigh high zippers that allow you to get in and out of your camouflage easily, with our without boots on.  And here is something you don’t hear every day.  These camo pants are infused with lava rock and coffee to help mask your scent when you are in the field.

Pros:

  • The warranty is exceptional!  Badlands offers a no questions asked, all products fully covered policy and I am a big fan of that.
  • These pants offer above average durability, specifically the reinforced knees.
  • I like the body heat retention technology as the pants seem to hold heat well.
  • Thigh high zippers are nice, allowing for incredible ease when getting dressed, even if you leave your boots on.

Cons: 

  • They are expensive.
