Best Upland Pants? Waterproof


Recommended Posts

I have had the same pair of Browning upland pants for 4-5 years and they are shredded top to bottom, great pair of pants but I would like a pair that is waterproof. Filson is the name but don’t know if I want to spend 130 for Double tins. (McAlister Waxed Pants look to be really good and I think I am going with them or a Gore-tex option. Any past experience please reply.

Cabelas Gore tex upland pants have been great for me. Cool enough to wear in warm weather yet throw on layers and they are great in the cold. I think what I like best is the weight vs my Filson pants. They are very light yet weather resistant.

Durability has also been quite good. I am careful around fences and such but quite frankly if you go goretex you have to be anyway.

The Pheasants Forever Brand I bought last year from Bella's have to be the best pair of pants (bibs actually) I have ever owned. A little on the expensive side, but worth the ching. The matching jacket is also very nice.

If you buy Filson, go with the shelter cloth not the tin cloth. The tin cloth are too darn stiff and you'll sweat like a pig. None of Filson's stuff is truly waterproof anyway. It's all just waxed cotton. It's water resistant and briar proof. If you want true waterproof I'd with with something that is goretex lined. Cabelas Upldand Guidewear with goretex get good reviews from my buddies. I shred my clothes pretty regularly so I just by faced jeans and spray them with camp dry because I'm cheap. Once it's cool enough I start wearing chaps over jeans.

I am wearing the PF bibs in my new Avatar grin Water, wet grass, hot days, cold days, as long as you have good boots, you will love these bibs (jacket or not). Grouse or pheasant. wink

I have a pair of Columbia Cordura hunting pants. Waterproof and virtually indestructible brush busters. But, way too warm for fall hunts. I don’t wear them until after December.

For true water proof either Cabelas Gore-tex Jean style or the Dry-plus if the still have it. I wear both. If it is not raining I wear Filson tin cloth with the double tin fronts. Filson fits me the best out of all the pants.

Shoot, I went to FF and bought a pair of Carhartt brown duck cloth pants and a can of waterproofing spray. Very cheap and I still am using those pants 4 years later

Has anyone tried the Orvis Toughshell pants, I was comparing them to the Cabelas dry ones which according to one post were liked. I found one review on the Orvis pants, https://theuplandhunter.com/best-brush-pants-grouse-hunting/ but was really checking to see if someone has used them before buying as they are pretty expensive.

      I feel with papadarv's insight anything could be fabricated

      The chair was part of the structural integrity, all one unit put together.

      Can't he just get a new folding camping chair to put in it?  How hard would that be?  The little holes are nothing to throw a patch on.  Dang the icedog is in Marion, IA. I'll take it and see if I can fix it up, if he can't use it! 👍

      Sorry to get your hopes up icedog, especially because I was just gonna give it to ya for free, but it is kaput. Just a couple minor mice holes, and it looked pretty good overall, took a pic pointing out the holes......and then I sat in it and moved around a bit. All of the plastic pressure point/parts attached to the chair pretty much disintegrated to the touch. Time and plastic......not a good mixture. I doubt you will find one that is still holding up. But thanks for helping me declutter the shed.

      Wife just showed me a facebook post by highbanks today. Urgent message at that. Seems another resort is trying to tie in to highbanks road system.

      Looks like the shanty town that sprung up around my house in central MN.  Just moved it off to a new, less populated spot and now have someone drilling by me.
