I’m done with First Lite pants Who makes good early to mid season that don’t pick up every damn prickly thing?

Sitka Ascents or mountain pant
Do those goat heads really not stick to Sitka? I haven't seen any clothes that don't pick those damn things up.
Just be thankful you guys out west don’t have preachers lice! They even stick to a deer’s coat.
I wear nothing but Sitka Ascents, unless it’s really cold, then I’ll wear my Sitka Mountain pants.
Kuiu attacks are pretty good. Burrs will stick but brush off easily. Anything that burrs won't stick to tends to be noisy in my experience.
Kuiu attack pants.
Attacks if you can get them on sale. By far my favorite pant for durability and comfort. I’ve taken them pheasant hunting and not had any real issue with pickers and stickers.
I’m actually going to be moving over to Stone Glacier pants.
Really believe that naked would be best.
Kuiu Attacks darn good

I’m a fan of climates and seasons that I can just hunt in the good ole birthday suit
Black Ovis carries some.

I've got 8 year old pair of Sitka mountain pants, they are ridiculously durable. Several times I've taken a serious digger and damaged gear, person and undergarments, but no damage to the pants, plus anything that sticks, easily brushes off, but not much sticks to them.
Thanks. I’ll try the Kuiu next.

I've gone to the point of wearing hip boots to keep the sticky stuff off me if I know I'm going to be in it.
I should add, since your looking at Kuiu, dont get the Kutana's. They were great to start but have pilled on me after lots of burrs and are now terrible. Stick with the attacks for burrs.
X3 on the Carharts....

Wrangler outdoor pants. Revolutionary in they are very affordable while fitting the bill nicely. Try a pair. They cost $24. Not $200. If you don’t like them they’ll become a new pair of leisure wear.
Here's a pair of KUIU Attack pants.
Preachers lice will stick to glass, I swear.
Unless KUIU changed their fabric technology since I bought mine, I'm gonna wholeheartedly disagree with all the guys claiming they don't pick up every damn burr and sticker out there. I've spent many a day cleaning burrs off my Attack pants and won't even wear them in certain areas. My Alpine pants are much better and as everyone said my Sitka Ascent's are good too, although the earlier version seems better than the more current version that I own.

X4 on Carharts. Their noisy if your going through the pucker brush.
Carhart. They do get bits but are easier to get them off. I hunt with chestnut brown pants regularly. They blend in well.

Does anyone have a link to a store that has the Kuiu Attack Pants in stock? I'm looking for the Valo camo in a 38" waist and tall inseam, but my searches are coming up empty. I probably shouldn't have procrastinated this long.
KUIU only sells direct.
I have one of those. Waste of money, IMO.
From: greg simon
KUIU Guide pants are really bur resistant but they are to warm for many activities.
I bet I could ask for the best pant with 3 leg holes and the sitka and Kuiu fan club would come out and saying Sitka! Sitka! or Kuiu! Kuiu!
