Well, the elk hunt is coming up. And I tried on the wool, bib overalls that I've worn on the last two elk hunts, several years ago. You guessed it - I could barely wiggle my hips and old-man gut into them. Man, I'm getting tired of this crap. These things weren't cheap. I now have a new pair of Kuiu pants coming. First, I was pissed about not fitting in the overalls and then, I notice Kuiu only goes up to 40 waist. Dam young whipper snappers; that's age discrimination. This hi-tech crap better work. I'm sure I'll get some side-ways glances from any wranglers in the outfit - old man in hoity toity young man's gear.

Now, I can still get into (comfortably) plenty of stuff labeled "38", so I know I'm right on that cusp of a., the cleaners/washing machine shrunk it and b., "you're becoming a fat old fart."

On the bright side - there seems to be plenty of early snow in Montana.

'Looking forward to starting my mid-life crisis road trip in 3 weeks. 'Started doing Burpees in a last-ditch, panic attack to get to some semblance of fitness. Deeam, those things kick your butt. rifle

You will like those pants. A whole different world than those overalls.

Those pants are awesome. So are the Firstlite pants. You'll never go back to those coveralls even though you'll probably be able to fit in them when you get home:)

Just googled these and saw the prices. eek2 Didn't know I was supposed to spend $150-250 for proper hunting pants. Must have been dang lucky to kill so many animals in my old faded Wrangler camo jeans....

I love my Prana Stretch Zion pants and shorts, doesn't get any better than that. Hear that Creekrunner - they are stretchy pants grin (insert Pic of Nacho Libre here). Bobo may be onto something here. Granted it ain't camo so they will see you coming from a mile away. bolt

I usually hunt in the same, but when Iím putting in miles on tough terrain, the extra expense is worth it. Thereís a lot of comfort issues I donít have to worry about with KUIU that I do with jeans.
