My favorite pair of hunting pants are my merino wool First Lite Kanab 2. I know they are prone to easy rips and wear, but this weekend I completely blew out the inseam and zipper stitch down one of the legs. It looks like the material is intact but a couple seams and stitching pulled out. Anyone have any experience or know if this is something that can be fixed?

I had a panel? (Correct word) blow out. I just stitched it, took me 15 min watching a movie versus dealing with the return process 🤷‍♂️

I won't be returning these as they were purchased years ago. They served me well, best chukar hunting pant I've ever tried. I like them more the the newer Obsidians which replaced the Kanabs. Hopefully I can take them in to a local alteration shop and have the ladies fix them up.

Big circle needles and nylon thread, floss is a decent substitute.
