Why We Made This

Waterfowl hunters have a need for an all-encompassing pant that can work for the entire hunt. Most pants in this space have a poor fit or lack range of motion while trying to cover multiple weather windows. Our approach was to design an ultra-durable pant that could serve dual purposes–as durable outerwear and also an insulating layer in colder conditions–while still allowing for a superior range of motion. We included diagonal zip pockets on the thighs to grant easy access to essentials while sitting and a DWR finish resists light precipitation and prevents the face fabric from wetting-out. The Grinder pant can be worn as a standalone piece or easily layered into your waterfowl system for all-season hunting.

Hands down the best pants I’ve ever owned. The 4 way stretch is unreal, never bunches or gets tight. I’ve used these pants for bear baiting, shed hunting, chorin and hunting…never disappointed.
I’ve walked through wet grass to get to my stand and the pants are dry within an hour. Do yourself a favor and get a pair.

Awesome pants! These are my go to for work around the farm, field hunting waterfowl, and upland bird hunting. Pair these with the Gradient pants and I'm good down to the upper-20s. The fabric repels water well and they dry quickly. These things are bulletproof when is comes to getting them dirty also....mud & blood wash right out. I own three pairs and they get abused weekly and keep coming back for more!

Very comfortable. I wore them for early season goose in a field blind, temps in the low 60's and into the 70's. Last couple of mornings I have worn them under breathable waders for early teal hunting, mid 50's for temps. They stretch and have a slippery feel to them when sliding in and out of the waders. There is no binding. The vented pockets dump a lot of heat. I never felt too warm or cool/cold. 5-11, 200 lbs and I wear a 36R (I normally wear a 34 in jeans). The 36R's fit me well and I have room for a base layer under them when needed. Like I said, Very Comfortable. I can see another pair or two in my future.

Great pant—even for the ladies! It can be very discouraging finding good quality camo in ladies sizes. I was looking for a pant that I could use alone in early season or under my waders in late season, and the only sizes available in the ladies pant were 28 and 40…and I am neither of those. I am normally a ladies size 8 and the 32R in these pants fit great. Lightweight and easy to move in, and I didn’t overheat in a 75 degree early season goose hunt. I look forward to wearing these the rest of the year!

These are awesome upland bird hunting pants. They are great on warm days, protecting you from morning frost/dew and seem to be thorn proof. The crotch area doesn't bind when walking through heavy grass or crossing a fence. If it gets cold out just wear a thin pair of long underwear and you're good to go. They are hands down the best rooster chasing pants I have ever worn and they are WELL WORTH THE PRICE TAG.

Great pants for everyday/work use. Very comfortable and pretty durable. They fit true to size and have some degree of moisture protection. I carried these on a snow skiing trip and they were absolutely perfect. I love them so much I bought 5 pair for every day of the week. They are the best everyday pants on the market and are great for cool days under the waders.

I love these pants. I wear them in all but the warmest and coldest conditions. I wear them under bibs or as an outer layer as either a stand alone or with a base layer. They start out many mornings at hunt tests in the summer...they are tough and comfortable. I have heavier pants and lighter pants but find these are generally my go to wear. My only knock on them is that I’m 6’6 so the long size still shows some ankle...doesn’t matter for these pants I swallow my vanity and show my legs.

Light weight and comfortable. These are great under waders early in the season when the temps are still up there. However, I actually utilize the Grinder Pant (Mud finish) more for dog training through out the year. The light weight makes them perfect for summer wear. The stretchiness is perfect for; bending over and correcting dog positions, climbing into and out of the truck and just about any other situation that may arise. A very nice pant that may be of more use as an everyday pant, rather than a hunting pant!

These pants are extremely comfortable and move with you. Boot cut so pants won't ride up over your boots when bending over or squatting. Bought these pants for doing work around the farm, hunting, fishing. Bought these pants based on durability and the ability to wear these for every season. Will put these to the test.

These pants fit great and are remarkably comfortable. The fabric stretches allowing you to climb or step over things easily and yet are really durable. The zippered pockets are great for securing items during a boat or atv ride and the knife pocket is well constructed and handy.

Love these pants and the mud color. I’ve always wanted a solid color pant like these other than blue jeans because I don’t like being camo from head to toe after the hunt. I just wish they had a built in ankle garter or stirrup for wearing under my waders. They would be perfect with those.

I love these! I wear them under waders or under the Layout bib pants and couldn't be happier with them. I also use them as the outer layer when goose hunting on warm days. Very comfortable, and while they aren't something I'd tackle brush in day after day, they will do the job when needed.

I really want to like these pants more than I do, I just can't really find a good purpose for them. I will wear them under my waders when its in the 45-60 degree range, but other than that, I really can't find their purpose. I have heard they are very durable & could be worn upland hunting, but personally, I don't see that. The material is too stretchy to be that durable.

I own way too much Sitka gear for the field and bought these Grinder Pants for a more casual environment. Best solid color pant in your lineup. Don't get me wrong I also own it in the camo colors.

These pants are flat out amazing. Admittedly when I first got them, I didn’t see the full potential or really how amazing they were. For some reason I decided to keep them. After wearing them once, I never wanted to take them off. They are for slightly cooler temps. I’d say 60 degrees and below. They are comfy, well thought out, functional, and have a modern fit. They are different from any pants I own. Everyone needs a pair of pants like this. These pants only make me want to own more Sitka products. I’ve yet to see any other company or clothing manufacturer who puts so much thought into their garments. Oh, and the color is perfect. Goes with so much.

These pants are very well constructed. The 4 way stretch is super comfortable and doesn't hinder movement. Great for everyday wear as the fabric is very durable and abrasion resistant. The pants tend to be on the warmer side of typical everyday pants. The thigh pocket can be left open and used to dump heat if need be. One minor negative is the pants are quite a bit louder than expected but over all a great all around pant.
