Rated 5 out of 5 by Cgrant Best lightweight hunting pants for hot weather
Most upland or hunting pants in general are made for cold weather. These are lightweight, but still do a great job of repelling water and briars. I've never found anything cooler, other than shorts. I've used them in the hot weather of early season dove hunting in south texas, as well as warm quail hunts in georgia.
This is my second pair, I lost the first moving but it lasted for years and I would still be using it.

Ok - not usual hunting use but our new house has blackberry brambles & some sort of stick-um seeds. These pants pretty much shed the seeds (yes!!!) and are as protective as any thick pant. The small is a bit big in the waist for me (LLBean jean size is 10). Medium fits husband (waist 34-36). These wash well.

These are my favorite LLBEAN piece of clothing. Not to warm in hot weather, work well in cool weather. I know they're made with cotton, but they do well in rain. I prefer to goretex pants, I get too hot in those.

I usually assume lighter weight upland pants will be less durable but no so with these. They are holding up well and showing surprisingly little wear and tear. They even shed stains fairly well so stay looking newish even after several trips (pro or con depending on your taste).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Swampstumbler Great Fit and Cool to Wear
I do a lot of dog training prior to hunting season and finding comfortable field pants is critical to having focus on the dog and no fire going under your belt. No more bow legged walks to the car after a day in the field.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1923 warm weather pants
Looked at many pairs of pants. Pants on the internet and in stores. I needed warm weather hunting pants with minimal brush guard. These have articulated knees, suspender buttons. rubber shirt grabber inside the waist, and expanding waist for when one eats too much barbeque on the opening day of dove hunting down south. They are very roomy. Light weight poplin is just right. Cost is not a factor. I can pay more but I cannot get this much in a pair of pants. My dog will not tolerate me being shabbily dressed or carrying an ugly gun. Thank you for putting a lot of thought into these pants. If the weather is warm and you have to prime yourself to spit, be glad you are hunting in these pants.

Added these to my existing pair of LL Bean technical upland pants for
warmer weather wear. Both pants are superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SOFTHACKLE1 cotton trousers with good protection and fit
Only used once in field with my new cocker spaniel.
Very comfortable and well made. Will probably buy another pair before they get changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Henryfam Absoutely the Most Confortable Briar Pants
I have been an upland bird hunter for over 30 years, and have owned many pairs of various makes of briar protective pants. These are unquestionable the most comfortable, with good protection and without the excessive stiffness of other brands. They also have some kind of rubber like anti slip material in the waistband that keeps them from slipping down or shirts from pulling out. I highly recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DoubleTrigger Comfortable, cool and a good value
These pants fit me well and keep you as cool as possible in 70-80 degree weather. Easier to walk in than some other heavier upland pants. Brush, thorn protection is good for a pant this light. I'll probably wear these most of the season.
Can't speak to durability after a couple of hunts, but they feel and look well made, even after the first washing.
