Looking at adding a pair of pants to the collection for late season archery hunts.

Have searched eBay, but can’t tell exactly what I should be looking for.


Would these do the trick?

I've primarily worn wool for about 20 years. I've got Cabelas pants and shirts and bibs. My hunting coat has gone missing and I'm thinking about the 'LL Bean hunting coat.

Light Merino baselayers by Smartwool, Ibex, Icebreaker, Woolpower, Kuiu, etc, have always been a staple in my kit. I still regularly use Pendleton Wool Shirts and occasionally a wool vest, or my old Army Wool Sweater.

One company I hadn’t seen mentioned is Autumnwood Wool. Think they have the finest wool hunting outerwear. Love their Anorak with the integrate handwarmer muff - great stuff to wear when it’s really cold

If you are a size 32, I have a brand new set of KOM bibs that you can have for $175tyd. Never hemmed....never worn beyond trying them on around the house. I have a set of Filson bibs that are a touch bigger and those have been used a bit. Those can be had for $150tyd. Both are super high quality.

Love my Silent Predator Jacket and Vest. Just wish I had purchased the pants. Price is double what they were when I bought the other pieces.

Wool fan here too!

Base layers are all wool, first lite, icebreaker.

For Midwest deer I will stay in wool outer too using different filson tops and bottoms. Wool has so many attributes, warm, silent and I believe helps with odor. Shed wind isn’t one of them so extra layers or a wind/rain shell too.

For back country elk hunting I’m in first lite wools tops and bottoms, when cold I’m in more synthetic options due weight advantage but still keep have a very warm midlayer wool sweater in the pack along with puffy.

I use KUIU merino wool long sleeve 145 1/4 zip for my base layer on top, I also have the 210 ( heavier) long sleeve 1/4 zip...love them both.
