Filson is ok if you only hunt a couple hours, after that, the thick cloth will have your legs worn out.
After years of trying everything possible, other than Filson, I finally settled on thin base layer(Dickies right now) that are 2 sizes to big for me; I can pull them up and take them off without opening them up. They are held up by suspenders. To turn brush, I have a thin pair of chaps, again sized extra big. This allows my legs freedom of movement, easy stepping up and over objects, without wearing them out. This wont turn away heavy thorns like MF rose, so I come home at the end of the day with marks on my legs, some days worse than others. But it keeps me out hunting 6-8 hours a day.
Plenty of scouting and good habitat makes for a great hunt.
