Rated 2 out of 5 by jer777 Only for bad weather
I'm a new hunter so most of this stuff may seem obvious to the pros. That being said I hunt mostly in the rocky mountains of Alberta, so I wanted something that would provide some layering protection from the versatile mountain weather.
First the good. These are decent for lousy weather. Rain, sleet and snow you will remain dry and with some good thermals warm as well. Which is great.
Now the bad. These things are pretty noisy if you're moving through bush. Plus if it gets cold they will get louder.
They claim to breath but I found I got pretty sweaty even with a temperature around 10C while navigating rougher terrain
Not a bad technical pant but they're just too noisy. Some pockets would've been nice too.

I looked at this rainsuit set for quite awhile, close to 2 years, my old browning rainsuit was giving up the ghost slowly but surely, I read all the reviews on the pants & jacket, went back to the store & checked them out again, ended up having to order from the store to get the camo flavor I wanted, everyone @ the store was really helpful, Greg, the store manager, called me when they came in and brought them to me once I arrived @ the store. I went immediately out to our wooded park area, lots of deer to watch, even though it wasn't raining I wanted to check out the flexibility, it was like 28 degrees out, if a suit is going to make noise I would know before I took off the tags. The suit performed great, very quiet, flexible, I don't know @ running through any briars but moving in & out of buck brush & holly thickets I had no problem, the deer I watched didn't even know I was there. I have no doubt they'll function fine in the rain, would have gave 5 stars but needed pockets & expandable leg opening on the pants, they fit over the boots, it would just be easier, nice job Redhead.

I turkey hunt in Missouri, these pants were purchased to do just that and made excellent rain pants (also jacket and pack) however they became so overcome with briars (stick tights) I was unable to use them for turkey hunting. The pants became very loud when walking through the woods and removing the briars were near impossible. I would not recommend these pants if you are going to be in the woods.
