Great choice on pants!Hey guys,
Im going on a super cold weather hunt in January. I need a pair of puffy pants. I have everything else. They need to be decently light but they really need to be WARM. I want to spend $200 or less would be great. Im considering First Lite Uncompahgre Pant, UA Alpine Ops Pant, and KUIU Super Down Ultra Pant. For the most part these are all around $200 (I have a kuiu coupon). Maybe I can get a good deal on black friday. Anyway, have any of you used these pants in temps below 0? What was the result?
If someone would make something like this with synthetic and for half the price, I'd buy it. Especially if they would slide over my regular pants. They are probably out there somewhere, but I have not found them yet.
X2 on the fit, also i waffled between down and synthetic but went with the synthetic uncompaghre, glad I did, my down jacket got a little “matted” sitting in the stand during cold rain this month but my uncompaghre pants did not.The uncompaghre pants are nice. Fit is good. I layer them over a couple things for a treestand sit and a couple times the waist button has popped open, but they keep me warm. I have the kuiu zipoff bottoms and they have a super awkward fit, so I didnt want to risk buying their puffy pants in case the proportions were similar.
Uncompaghre pants outer material is much quieter than the material Kuiu uses on their Super Down jacket (original one...not sure about the newer version) and gloves.X2 on the fit, also i waffled between down and synthetic but went with the synthetic uncompaghre, glad I did, my down jacket got a little “matted” sitting in the stand during cold rain this month but my uncompaghre pants did not.
Also the material of these pants is way quieter than you would expect, absolutely a top layer option for sitting in a stand.
