Prana Zions or Eddie bauer guides are IMO way better for less money. Air dumps are the only thing kuius have that the others don't.

The tiburonís are my most favorite pant for Texas. Fit is great and they make Longs now. I have tested them in just about every situation and have been very pleased with their durability. The only thing that has damaged them so far are heavy thorns. They pull some threads here and there, but am not as bad as most other pants I have worn.

Kuiu is all I wear when it’s hot... whether I’m hunting or building fence. Jeans are just too hot and soak up moisture in the morning. They are lightweight, cool, and surprisingly durable. Fit a little small to me.

There might be cheaper options that I haven’t tried but they’re well worth it to me.

For mountain hunting in Colorado where the temp could be 37 in the morning to 65 later in the afternoon, yes. Especially hiking up mountains where you quickly will build up a sweat. The vented pants really do make a difference when youre sweating and hiking long miles. I have had mine for a couple of years and have lasted very well (even through the rough South Texas brush).

For what its worth, I have pants from Cabelas, Canis, Badlands and 5.11. In my opinion Kuiu has the best well designed pants by features, well positioned pockets, materials, etc.

Still havent mentioned what hunting you do. For 90% of texas hunting, not worth it. Tiburon could definitely make life nicer in the heat, but not a necessity. Now if you're stalking stuff, hunting on plateaus of west texas or something like that, sure. Otherwise, they're really meant for active hunting like the colorado comment above.

For what it's worth, every time we go down to Texas to hunt, mostly hogs, our mountain camo comers with us. I wear Core4 element. The patterns work well if you get out of your stand, I don't hunt from one and materials are very quiet. Stalking and moving through the brush is much quieter than jeans.
Core4 went out of business quite a few years ago but our camo is still doing great and has lasted years. Jeans just don't hold up and do not breath .
The materials are what makes the difference.
Look on Camofore and BlackOvis for deals.

Good gear is worth every penny. Its durable, comfortable, and lasts. That's why you see the guys who hunt all over the place wear it during Texas deer and dove hunts. Because it quickly becomes your go-to no matter where you hunt. The guys that are too cheap to buy it don't understand that apparently.

The zip vents on the Kuiu pants are awesome. For hot weather, get Tiburon. For mild temps, get Attack.

Word.

I bought kuiu this year for an antelope hunt. I should have done it sooner. Its not much more money (especially with 1st responder discount). Add warranty and the fact it lasts longer and it makes more cents....

I can't speak to Kuiu's clothing, I've got a Kuiu pack and am happy with it. But, the advice on the Prana is spot on. I love mine. A budget option are the Wrangler Outdoor/Mountain something or other pants at Walmart. They breath, flex and have lasted surprisingly well in the brush. I think they're $23 a pair.

Army surplus. Lots of camo patterns, washable, durable, big pockets you already paid for them once so they are not expensive. Recently bought some near Ft. Polk $15 near new condition, very comfortable. Not waterproof or insulated but I have gear for that.

You guys that wear the Kuiu gear and have a belly do these sag in the crotch area? I typically wear a 34-36, but i wear them lower as i have a dad gut. I cannot stand anything that is made to wear up around your belly button.

I'm with the majority on pants. However, I will spend some money on a jacket and beanie. I've got a Sitka jacket and beanie and it a game changer on those freezing mornings. I love it for the ride to the blind, and I may take it off before I get off the buggy but it is awesome stuff IMO.

Sitka mountain pants for me....itís what Iím wearing now and what Iíve been wearing chasing antelope for the past four days in temps from 35 in the mornings to 75 in the afternoon. Depending on the type of hunting you will be doing, the knee pads are a godsend.

But like others have said....sitting in a blind all day Iíd save my money and buy more alcohol

I have several pairs of KUIU pants and I'm a big fan. I have lightweight for Texas summers and up to the guide series. However, I have recently started purchasing pants at Daluth Trading and i've worn them on recent hunts. Even where them to the office on some Friday's. I'm not sure which ones they are but they are very similar to the Kuiu pants at less money.

This. You dont know til you try them. I have several pieces from Kuiu, First Lite, Nomad, and other academy brands and by far my Kuiu and First Litr pieces are the most comfortable, versatile pieces, they get the most use
