"Warm weather pants "

Looking to upgrade my pants this year. Temps in August and September can be near a 100 degrees. Looking for something that handles the heat well but is also pretty tough. We hunt in some nasty thick stuff and it has to be able to hold up

Thanks

Kuiu Tiburon!! They are pretty durable for how extremely light and cool they are. The attacks handle snags better but are warmer.
I would run the tiburon especially if temps are 90-100. The vents are a great feature and work awesome also.

Steer clear of anything with kneepads, the pad heats up like a SOB in the direct sunlight!

I think the high friction in that crack may cause some heat build up.

You have to pick which feature is more important (ripstop or breath ability). The kuiu tiburon pant is very well ventilated and comfortable. But they are thin.

I'm kind of a simple person and like affordable pants.
They'll wear out and get torn eventually no matter what.
I use Dickies brand light canvas pants in summer and on fall hikes.
Works for me.

Browning makes some thin Clothes with a NWTF logo on them. Have only seen them at Cabelas, but is what I use for our 100+ degree dove hunts.

The bikini would also work, a cpl spray tanning sessions with leaf pattern and you have built-in camo.

>Kuiu gear or zip off
>pants.

Good advise! If you get the zip-offs, try to find something that zips down the side also, so you don't have to take off your boots. Also, make sure the zipper is ABOVE the knee! Many times the zipper is right at the knee and it will become irritating after a few miles. I'm actually surprised Kuiu doesn't make a zip off model of the Tiburon.

I'm a huge fan of the sitka ascent pant. I own several pair in solid and camo colors. I wear the solids all year long and the camo during the archery hunts. Just this past weekend it was 101 in pioche and I was fine in my ascent pants hiking all over the place. Highly recommend.

Ill throw a vote in for kuiu tiburon. By far the best warm weather pant out there.

Champion C9 Golf Pants (look on Target's website for best prices) if you're looking at budget options...right at 9 ounces for my 32" waist size. Dry seemingly in an instant, been wearing same pair for 5 years+ now on August-September high country bivy hunts. At less than $30 with coupon code, the khaki and gray are my go-to's. Pack a 100-200 weight merino base layer and it's sufficient for temps to mid-upper 30s.

Both colors pictured here. 2014 archery elk - OTC CO.

The regular buckskin leather loin cloth worked good for our Indian friends. Protects the important stuff, cool on the legs. Now we need this high-tech clothing.

I have 2 pair of Sitka Ascent and they are tough as nails. They seem a bit light duty because the fabric is so thin but they are surprisingly durable. I took a spill on my dirt bike while wearing some and my left knee got dragged under the bike for about 10 feet. Knee was pretty scraped up, but the pants came out fine.

Another good pant that is reasonably priced is the 5.11 Tactical Traverse pant. They have a bunch more pockets and stuff. Regular price is around $90 but they have 20-25% off sales several times a year.
