This past year I’ve discovered a clothing line that can cover my entire hunting needs…from anearly season archery antelope hunt, October elk hunt in the mountains and outfit me through thefrigid temperatures of late season North Dakota bowhunts for whitetails.
The First Lite line of clothing has you covered from head to toe, through all weather conditions. During an early season archery elk hunt in Montana, I w as fortunate to try out the new Corrugate Guide Pants by First Lite (located at select SCHEELS stores). Now these pants are everything they say they are…lightweight, breathable and extremely durable.
They are made with a built-in stretch DuraFlex fabric that is water repellent and perfect for an all-around, all day hunting pant…good for almost all but the most extreme conditions. The 3D side cargo pockets have the best design I have ever seen and all other closures and zippers are well designed and quietly managed while on the move.
The Corrugate Guide Pant has both belt and suspender loops a s well as a DWR finish to keep you dry during rain showers. This may be the answer to having the complete all day hunting pant for the active hunter. The recommended temperature range for the Corrugate Guide Pants is 45 degrees to above 80 degrees…great for early season archery hunts, upland game hunting, treestand hunts as well as spot and stalk style hunting.
The inspiration behind the Corrugate Guide Pant derived from rock climbers and mountaineers who demand the best during highly active and critical situations. They are available with the exclusive First Lite “Fusion” camouflage pattern as well as Dry Earth, Pine and ASAT camouflage. The unique stretch fabric makes them durable and nearly bombproof making the First Lite Corrugate Guide Pant the ultimate synthetic hunting pant.
