Suggestions on Brush Pants

I am looking for a good pair of brush pants. I've been through about 3 pairs in the last 5 years. They all have ripped and tore at the seams. I am not looking to spend a pile of money either. Thanks in advance!

Re: Suggestions on Brush Pants

I was doing the same thing...until I bought a pair of Filson double tin chaps. They are indistructable. Will never go with pants again. Probably will not wear out the chaps

Re: Suggestions on Brush Pants

I found a pair of Wrangler Brush pants at a discount store for $12. I bought them and they have lasted me 3 years through some of the nastiest multi-floral rose patches I have seen
The internet has to have some cheap

Do a search for Dan's hunting clothes. Their chaps and bibs are tremendous.

Re: Suggestions on Brush Pants

They're about 12 year old... But I also use leather chaps and Mule bibs,.

The chaps are fine for bird fields should last along time. Briars and time take its' toll. The chaps are waxed cotton. Tuff stuff but there is tuffer stuff on the market...cheaper too.

Re: Suggestions on Brush Pants

Actually my leathers are older bought in the early 80's and in better shape.,, Mules have been in service for 8 years, not a mark.

I have alot of Filson Products boots to hats jackets shirts pants Game bags and field bag. They make some fine things. Filson is a fine company. I just happen to know there are better chaps on the market. That is the purpose of my post.

Filson chaps come in regular and long sizing. Mule chaps are custom measured length and thigh diameter. Excellent fitting. Forty dollars well spent.

Only wore mine once so no real feedback yet, except for I didn't get stuck at all and I went through some real nasty stuff that day.
At least for right now they're alot better than the field-n-stream's that lasted about 4 hours before tearing.
And they're on sale

Re: Suggestions on Brush Pants

I have Lion Country Supply warm weather chaps and Filson tin cloth chaps. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

I have had my eye on Orvis chaps for a little while. A buddy of mine has them and loves them.

My Filsons get a bit heavy when walking through morning-dew covered brush. And the LCS chaps are noisy.

Re: Suggestions on Brush Pants

Anyone have any reviews on the mule briar pants? I'm wondering if they are really stiff. I hunt nasty pickers without a dog and I'm tired of ripping my legs up. I would love to see some pics of these pants if anyone has them. The website is not any help as far as a picture.

Re: Suggestions on Brush Pants

I use the insulated ones in very cold weather myself. But they get soaked thru in dew or wet brush in warmer weather.

Re: Suggestions on Brush Pants

I have the pants. I only purchased them this year late in the season and had an opportunity to wear them twice. The are fairly stiff and seem like they will handle the heaviest briars. They are waterproof as well. I would have to say they would be alittle heavy to wear during warm weather hunting.I also purchased Mule's vest and shirt last year and both are pretty much briarproof.

Re: Suggestions on Brush Pants

Another vote for the Filson DoubleTins. Yes, they are expensive. But by far the best brush pants I've ever owned. I don't small game hunt anymore though. What size do you need?
