I just ordered a set of briar resistant chaps for bird hunting. I think they look pretty cool. I've always worn briar pants but the ones I have are so old, and tattered, its time to replace them. Just wondering what you use or prefer.
Chaps will last longer..ya really don't "outgrow " them
True, however they will probably wear no longer than brier pants. They're going to get beat up the same I would think. I think each has its advantages. Brier pants probably protect the crotch a little better, but chaps like you said aren't as easily outgrown, and you can wear pretty much any pants under them without having to change into them like brier pants.
I have both but tend to wear the chaps most of the time. I like that I can take them off asap (they have zippers) and mine are also waterproof as well. I only wear the brush pants if its going to be really really cold.
That's another reason I went with the chaps this time. I like the idea of being able to remove them quickly for the trip home. Many times I've left only to have to clean the seat or floor area of the truck as the mud and brush etc get into the truck when I sit down. With the chaps just remove and toss in a bag or in the back and good to go.
