I wanted to post my experience today, as I went on a shed/buck bed hunt in snow, ice and thick brush. This was my first real field test of the kutana storm shell pants. I had only previously worn them hiking in rain. Today I walked through a frozen tamarack swamp, busting through the ice at times up to my knees in muck. I had to get through some multiflora rose thickets to get to bedding areas. I climbed through, under and over all kinds of brush today. The kutana performed great for a lightweight rain shell. I didn’t have any issues with water getting through or wicking even though at times I had to pry myself out of muck and water that would have gone over my rubber boots. After the trip I didn’t see a single thread picked which seems like a miracle based on the amount of thorns and prickers I encountered. I’m Super pleased with these pants so far. My last few rain shell pants were not so durable. I hadn’t seen any reviews of the kutana durability. Just wanted to post up if anyone is looking at these.
