Brush/Burr Resistant Clothing

Much of my archery hunting apparel is lightweight and composed of cotton or poly. Problem is, especially early season, is the burrs. Some peel right off, but other are small and ultra spiny and when they dig into to underarmour they all but ruin it as pulling them out still leaves spines behind (even with a burr removing tool).

Anyone have any suggestions? I am looking for something soft and quiet, not loud such as the canvas type material used in brushed pants.

Check out some of the waterproofed clothing... my jacket doesn't pick up any burrs.

Re: Brush/Burr Resistant Clothing

Good question.. I have yet to find an early season material that is resistant to hitchikers. I know fleece is quiet, but also a magnet for these. In a few of my spots I'll go through and trim paths to my stands about a month or so before the season this about the only thing i've found to help. It also keeps your walk in quiet. I know the feeling of having a new $300 set of camo, and looking down to see both legs covered from top to bottom with hitchhikers. They end up in your truck, house, washing machine, and then stuck to your wife's panties which usually doesn't go over well. LIke I said, Trimming a path has been the best deterrent for me. Nothing worse than being hooked in the ear by a huge thorn at 5:30am to wake you up. Deer will also use these paths, and it keeps the burrs down.

Columbia has some really good small game clothes that are OK until it gets cold. I have a pair of pants from them that nothing sticks to. If I remember its called Briarcloth, but its not noisy. I think the pants were $100, but I've had them for a few years, used hard and still in good shape, Google em'.

Anything burr/briar resistant will probably be noisy for archery - JMHO.
