Best pants I have found for hot weather. They seem, at least for me, to breath a lot better than sitka. Seem warmer when its cold too.

If you only want to buy one pair of pants to cover most your seasons the attack are great. If you only want a hot weather the Tiburon are awesome. They breathe a lot better than the attack in 80+ weather.

Check out Cabela's Micro-Tech. Super lite, warm, fast drying, and long lasting.
Very moderately priced.

I have a couple of Kuiu Attack pants and think they are the cat's meow. The thigh zip vents are great. The Tiburon might be better for super hot weather. I had a pair of Sitka Ascent pants but the seams wouldn't stay together in the crotch, a common complaint. Also have a pair of the Cabela's microtech pants which are good but are not in the same league with four way stretch clothing like the Attack or ascent. I

Don't forget Kryptek. They are the best pattern out by leaps and bounds. They have great lightweight hot weather gear. Check Cabelas they carry it.

Krypteks camo screening from what I have heard from several people & also seen on other sites doesn't last I know a couple of people that said hunting in lots of sage or short scrub brush robbed the pattern off the legs !!! I have both the accent & 90% in Sitka but I will buy KUIU in the future hands down better material & 1/2 the cost of Sitka !!

I have 2 pair of the KUIU attack pants, and the Sitka Mountain . pants and the Sitka Timberline Pants. All are real good and I don't think one is better than the other. I think I wear the Sitka mtn pants the most but I like them all and I don't think one is better than the other, just a little different.
I think any of them are good for early or late season, maybe a little hot if your in the desert, in the middle of the summer hiking.

We went the less expensive route through Cabela's. They have a new line of pants and shirts for hot weather hunting that started last year. It's called the Cabela's Zonz Woodlands camo pattern. They have two versions of camo patterns. The Regular which is moderately weight fabric then they have the "Made in the Shade" version which is super light yet durable and reinforced in all the right places. It has a UPF 50 sun screen rating to help reflect the heat away from the body. Cost is about $80.00 pants and $60.00 for the shirt, light weight gloves for us archery Hunters and a nice camo matching baseball cap. Check this stuff out......excellent product for the price. Everybody in our hunting group changed to it for this seasons early hot hunts. Hunted in Kali, A zone archery above Willits, CA, in 106 degrees yeh it was hot nothing could help that day Camo pattern is great for dry grasses, light colored rocks, brush and sparse foliage, desert backgrounds and mixed oaks or junipers. You sit right out in the open and blend right in. Best camo pattern and super light weight yet quality material that seeds and burrs don't cling to that has come out in a long time IMO.

12. "RE: Early season pants"

I haven't checked out the new Cabela's stuff that trophyhunter mentioned but I currently have the Attack pants, Sitka Ascent, Core4, FirstLite Kanabs, and Cabelas Microtech. If I had sell all except one, it might be a tough decision between a couple of them but I think I'd probably keep the Attack pants. They're pretty comfortable and more versatile in other weather conditons than the others. I got mine on sale for a pretty good price. I wouldn't have paid full price for them with all the other pants I have. But now that I have them, I really like them and prefer them over the others. If you're only going to be hunting in really warm weather though and never use them in cooler temps, I'd probably go with the Ascents. Once again though, I wouldn't pay full price for them. They're not worth that much.

I bought a pair from sportsmans a couple years ago and they are awesome. They only cost like 30-35 dollars then too. Went back and now prices have more than doubled. Shopped around and finally found a pair on sale at gander mountain for $42 that are similar. Super light weight but tough. I get hot walking so I used them during 2nd rifle season this year too, just carried a pair of long johns with me so when I sat the afternoon/evenings I wouldn't get cold.
