Looking for some suggestions on a reasonably priced, light-weight, early season hunting pant. I'm to frugal (well, cheap) to spend $100 +. I have tons of light weight T-shirts (short and long sleeve) that work great - just nothing for the bottom half that I'm satisfied with.

Prahna zion pants

Walmart sells a pant made by Wrangler that is similar to the KUIU attack pant. It’s like under $30.00 sometimes $24.99 on sale. It’s pretty legit.

Prahnas are very nice. Wranglers are a great bargain. I have both but haven't had them long enough to comment on their durability.

Wrangler tech pants with cargo pockets at Walmart as mentioned or Eddie Bauer Guide Pro on Sale. Kuiu Attacks are very comfortable but not real durable for the price IME.

Durable(very well built), comfortable( especially when it's hot/warm), the crotch is good for squatting, bending, climbing, etc........plenty of handy pockets...........canteen color is on sale if you wear 32-34" waist $50.........If not, the others are well worth the $80.

Good luck.

I have a pair of Sitka timberlines and love the waterproof seat and knee pads but for the price the wrangler ATG can’t be beat. If they just had a small knee pad they would be better than anything kuiu or Sitka has to offer. I have the dark gray color and the light brown. They are a nice everyday pant too. They feel like you are wearing nothing but don’t get shredded in deadfall like other cheap pants.

Kuiu Tiburon’s are lightweight and breathable......best lightweight pant out there, IMO. I still have a pair of the originals so they are a better value than something that only last a few seasons.

Another vote for the Wrangler ATG line. Light, stretchy, soft. Could use a few little things like button/zip back pockets, etc. but are great for $30-$40. Can find them on Amazon too, if they aren't in your local Walmart.

Ah the internet. The only place on earth where elk routinely produce 400 pounds of boned out meat, where a back pack weighing 90 pounds isn’t very heavy, where guys completes a 7 mile training hike with 120 pound pack in 2 hours, and the serious elk hunters wear out wrangler or Prana Pants in 7 days of hunting.

From: Supernaut

Just checked out the Wrangler ATG's online and will likely be purchasing a pair to try out. I wear $20 Wrangler jeans and have no issue with them.

Thanks for the reviews and heads up.

Same dilemma for me...…...for the money, I would go with the bass pro "tech lite" pants. I've used them before and they go for 50 bucks. Use and abuse them and buy another pair:)

My favorite lightweight pants are KUHL but they run about 150 a pair and come in brown, tan and charcoal/blue and I wear them for work/desk job but could hunt in them, ha. For the money, I don't want to rip them up.

Wrangler ATG are pretty descent IMO. Light weight and breathable, and pretty affordable.

These are pretty nice pants if you're ok with solids. I like them almost as much as my Zion's and they are only $30 MEN'S WRANGLER® FLEX WAIST OUTDOOR CARGO PANT IN EARTH GREEN

Have a several pairs of Eddie Bauer and another brand I can't remember from Costco that I like real well and they don't break the bank.

Another note on the Wrangler ATG is the fit. Not sure on the others, but the ATG stuff is not baggy and sloppy like other cheap camo pants. I pulled out some old Redhead/cabelas pants from back in the day and felt like I was back in the early 90s they were so baggy. Just more material to make noise and get snags.

And yes, we all know they aren't Kuiu, Sitka, FL, etc. I have those, and they're great.

Kuhl makes some great light weight outdoor pants, but they aren't as cheap as some of the other suggestions on this thread.

I used these pants this last spring turkey hunting. Comfortable, light weight, and price right! I like loose fit pants and the cargo pockets are nice.

You guys got me curious about Wrangler "ATGs" and got me thinking since my earth tone Wrangles I used to hunt in have shrunk the past couple years...8^) I'd look into the ATGs.... The acronym got to me for what it meant so I had to look it up... All Terrain Gear...

Love my Sitka Timberline and Ascent. My Ascents are 8 years old and going strong. Worth the money. And I have Prana Zions and other performance pants but they are for the street not the woods unless I'm just hiking around. But thats me.

The Wrangler ATG will be my go-to for elk. A few of our light construction crew use them for work and they have held up WAY longer than anticipated. Great for the price.

Some do some don’t MA bow hunter. My brother had a pair of the ascent brand from cabelas. They looked like a leafy ghilli suit after spending a few hours in moderate deadfall. My wrangler ATGs held up to similar abuse without ripping.

How do the ATG’s compare to kuiu attack pants?

From: Reggiezpop
13-Aug-21
As fast as the ATG’s come back in stock, I grab them. Bought all five pair at Target tonight for $27 a pair. I use them for hunting and for working, and they hold up especially well. 34 x 34 must be the most common size out there, because shelves are bare all over the place.

Never had attack pants but ATG pants have held up well for me , and are a third of the price of attack pants.

I was in Murdochs last weekend and happened to notice the Wrangler ATG pants hanging on the rack. I immediately thought about this thread, so I decided to try a pair on. You guys are spot on. They are great pants, especially for the price. My wife said they make my butt look good, too. ;-)

I like the Wranglers, 6 pocket, that have the polar fleece/thick flannel lining. Great for those winter/cold weather hunts.

They finally come with an option 36 inch in seem....

Good luck, Robb

Another vote for Prana Zion's. A little pricey, but I've had a pair for 5 years and I'm amazed how well they've held up considering how light and stretchy they are. They dry really quickly too.
