Sitka Gear developed a clothing line with the most extreme and hardcore hunters and outdoorsmen in mind. For the past eight years, they have continued to set the bar for those looking to take their sport to the next level. The new Grinder pant for 2014 is another one of those top of the line products you’re going to wonder how you lived without.
This pant was designed to be the waterfowlers work pant, but is just as much at home being your day to day work wear out on the ranch. They are built with a stretch woven fabric which was developed to endure the jagged and sharp granite in sheep country which has proven itself year after year. The 4-way stretch and roominess of these pants make them ideal for sitting for hours in your blind. The front pockets are extra deep and the concealed zipper pockets across the thigh are a great place to store additional shells, calls or anything you need handy when you are in the sitting position.
These are so much more efficient than side cargo pockets. When using a layout blind, the contents always shift to the back of your leg which usually requires you to tilt to the side when looking to get items out of them. The low profile belt system will keep your pants in place which is essential when you load down the thigh pockets with necessary cargo for those early season waterfowl hunts.
The Grinder pant is heavy enough to provide some insulation on those crisp mornings of early waterfowl season, but provide great breathability so that as the day heats up, you can still be comfortable. The low-profile seams and glued hems on these pants make them very comfortable under a pair of waders as well. A pair of Grinder pants weighs in at 22.90 ounces and comes in the the GORE OPTIFADE Concealment waterfowl pattern which incorporates eight colors, dithering and a hexagonal micro pattern to confuse the bird and disrupt the human shape.
If camo is not your thing and you are looking for a hard core pair of work pants for cutting wood, working the farm or just kicking back around camp, the dirt color solids are for you. They come in sizes ranging from 30 regular all the way up 44 regular. To accommodate the taller folks, Sitka has provided a tall size from 34 to 38.
The Sitka Grinder Pant is truly one of the most versatile pants they have ever developed for day to day use and is available at Sportsman’s Warehouse.
