Rated 5 out of 5 by WyoJohn Windstopper Wool Pants
They certainly do the job. There is the sound of the windproofing material while you walk. I did have an issue with them though. When I received them I found the corner of the flap of the left cargo pocket was sewn through the left lap pocket. They're good to go.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pogo11 Cozy but noisy
Although these pants are cozy and comfortable, they are too noisy if you need to be stealthy. Please bring back the 6-pocket wool hunting pants w/o Windstopper.

I bought these pants a few years ago and I will agree they are warm and windproof, however the main reason I ordered wool hunting pants is because they are supposed to be quiet. In trying to keep these pants windproof they lined them with potato chips. They are great for sitting in a stand but terrible for still hunting, really noisy. I wore them on the 1st day of a hunt in British Columbia and the guide told me to not wear them again on that hunt.

The pants are a little loud when walking as the reason for only 4 stars. With that aside very comfortable and warm

Rated 4 out of 5 by WoodysDad Great in the cold
I have now had these pants for about one year and I really like them a lot particularly on a windy cold day, it stops the wind nearly completely.
The down side to these pants are they are a bit noisy and are prone to rips around the knee area. My pants got a three cornered tear just below the cargo pocket from a stick that was on a dead spruce top. A lot of the areas that I hunt in have been logged extensively so having downed tree material is fairly common. These pans would be a lot better if the knee area was reinforced or the material was a bit heavier to resist these kinds of tears.

These pants are incredibly warm and comfortable. They are my new favorites for hikes in freezing temperatures. I appreciate the fleece-lined pockets; and the fit provides room for thermals if needed. At temperatures above freezing with high activity, these pants can be too warm - it's hard to be cold in these pants. Although the sound from the lining is noticeable indoors, it is not noticeable outside.

These pants took me hiking through the White Mountains and skiing Sunday River for two winters in a row (previously had the unlined, 4-pocket). I trudged through puddles only to get to -50 degF (after wind) peaks with no issue. I would hang them up at night, put them on still half frozen in the morning, and was warm within seconds. The liner is a huge boost not only for wind protection, but comfort. No more rough wool on bare skin. To top it off, they wash just fine. No shrinking or loss of warmth yet.

I had an old pair of L.L Bean Canada Grey wool pants and could not kill them in over twenty years. The moths finally did. Vermont and NYS late deer seasons are very cold ,wet and windy and I plan on using these pants for many years to come. Dense wool is quiet,warm, sheds water and fights oder natuarlly. A perfect mix for hunting clothing and winter hiking/snowshoeing. Its good to see that Bean still offers this type of gear at a fair price in the era of synthetics.
