Rated 5 out of 5 by Elway Very warm, but noisy.
Very warm, but noisy as many have stated. You can't hunt though, when you're freezing! I wore these with a fleece base layer, to cut down on the noise in 8 degree weather with no problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous25 Too noisy for hunting
These pants appear to be well constructed and warm; however, the lining is far too noisy for use as hunting pants. The advantage of a silent wool exterior is lost with this design. I am returning this product.
LLBean, please consider a design like the Maine Guide wool parka with the synthetic quilted lining for added warmth and wind protection.

by Jagerknott great pants when its cold
I have used the pants two times since I got them and they kept my legs warm at 23 degrees and wind at 10 MPH. I just wish I could have one size larger 48 W

Rated 3 out of 5 by photostalker Nice pants sound like a windstorm
Great pants, good weight and cut but the satin lining makes a ton of noise when you walk. No good for hunting.

good cold weather pants, perfect for snow wet and cold conditions, to hot for mild weather hunting if very active. like the pants.

Rated 2 out of 5 by McOldskewl Don't Buy These If you Plan to Hunt in Them
When the (4) pocket Maine Guide pant sold out of camouflage, I bought these pants thinking they were the exact same thing but I was wrong. These pants are very loud with the windstopper lining built into them. I am very dissatisfied and returning them tomorrow. Had I realized there was a difference and read the reviews on the (6) pocket vs. (4) pocket pants I would have known.
I would suggest a fleece lining or just offering them without the windstopper lining. The extra pockets always help out in the field except at the cost of a noisy lining. I will give them (2) stars since they are probably warm, but the noise factor is unacceptable for hunting use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CaTrekker Great pants but noisy
Bought these pants for an elk hunt. They fit just like I wanted and are heavy duty construction, but the windstopper is too noisy................so I returned them. I would definitely recommend them for use where noise is not an issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dryflys Warm--not quiet
Was looking for warm, quiet, wool for elk hunt. While these might be warm, the nylon lining could be heard @ 50 paces

Sadly I sent these back. Very well constructed but I did not like the wind shear lining. To noisey in the stand, I suggest a fleece lining and the product would be excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by huskerhunter Great Wool Pants!
I have owned a pair of these wool pants for years. I wear them whenever I am deer hunting or big game hunting. I disagree with some of the reviewers in terms of the noise. I think they are extremely quiet, particularly when branches brush up against them. They are very warm and comfortable and remain warm even when damp. They are my favorite hunting pants.
