    These briar pants are the most comfortable I have worn. I use them in South Texas, Georgia and Alabama. Great fit and wash very well.

    Great for upland hunting - 1/27/2014

    I wore these for 3 days of pheasant hunting in Kansas and they worked great. Not too heavy but rugged enough to protect you through the tough weeds.

    Pants did not hold up to the briars Grouse hunting in Western Pennsylvania. Briars pierced the pants and caused some minor cuts. Filson chaps provide better protection.

    Light weight faced pants - 9/19/2013
    By: from Arkansas

    I had a pair of light weight hunting pants I purchased from Orvis about 15 years ago that I love. They are great especially for early dove shoots. After 15 years they had started to develop some wear and I called Orvis to purchase a new pair however they no longer carried the exact ones. With the help of a product rep she suggested these as a replacement. I have not had a chance to hunt in them but tried them on and wore them around finding them to be excellent in fit, extremely comfortable. My only problem is my wife won't let me wear them to church!!!

    Great Product - 3/3/2013
    By: from Ky

    These pants are GREAT! Run a little larger than normal which works well for me, especially since were they tight fitting I'd be more likely to feel thorns. These pants are very protective - I would have been quite sorry with out during last weekend's walk-up. I still felt some thorns in extreme thicket- but it was inconsequential.Material dries quickly. Definitely warrants its reputation for excellence!

    Excellent Briar Pants - 2/24/2013

    I purchased these from the Orvis website. They are true to size and very well made. Most importantly, they repel thorns and briars very effectively. I was out today in southwest Michigan with about six inches of snow on the ground. These pants came through unscathed. They also repel moisture very well. They are not inexpensive, but they will hold up for a long time. By the way, spend the extra five dollars to have the hem finished in leather. It's well worth it!
