It is important that the female hunters out there ensure they buy and wear their own hunting clothes. Hunting pants that have been designed for male hunters just won’t do. They won’t keep you comfortable because they are not designed for the female shape and that means wearing clothes that don’t really fit should be a thing of the past.

The range of women’s hunting pants has been growing with each successive season and designs have improved so that the choice is extensive. We have put together a selection of insulated winter hunting pants for women that will help you make a solid choice for your specific type of hunting conditions.

Very comfortable, warm and enough room to wear layers. Pocket systems are spacious and the zippers are quite. Inner rubber elastic on belt line allowing the pants not to drift down. Fabric is a little noisy but it's not too bad. Still better than other brands out there.

Customer Testimonials

I am no novice to being out in the cold (dealing with horses all my life) but I am definitely new to First Lite and their products. I purchased these bottoms with the intention of staying warm on my trip to Finland. They are incredibly soft, the seams are flat and there are no tags to poke you. I am an athletic but thicker built woman who is 5'1 and 148 lb. The squat life is real, so I carry a good bit of weight in my stems. I opted for a size small and I am glad I did. The length is perfect and while I wish they came up a smidge higher, I think the mediums would have been a bust. I have some awesome expectations for these, I will definitely update this review after I spend a few days in the Arctic Circle trekking around. Loving what First Lite is doing, will definitely be a repeat customer!

I really really wanted these to work, Merino wool, articulated knees, flat stitching, Women's fit.... it all sounded perfect!

But there are a few failures to the product that I'd love to see fixed. It seems that these pants were cut to be yoga pants but made with fabric for their intended use, meaning not yoga pants.

The fit is super flattering looking but the waist band is too low for their use... if you squat down the waistband slides down to expose your bum, not useful for keeping the cold out. It would be better if they designed the waist band to be more like a high waisted "fold over" style yoga pant, it would be great if they made the waist band out of a different material with spandex so the fit was more dynamic.

The merino fabric was fabulous! Would not change a thing about that, also the articulated knee was great.

BUT the length was too short. It seemed like they were cut to be a 7/8th style length which again, is super cute but not functional for their intended use as a hunting base layer.

I'm 5'5 and 115lbs, I bought the XS and they were too short and the waist was too big. The thighs and butt fit perfectly.
***
Personally, I love these pants so much, I ordered a second pair. I did size down as per other reviews. According to the size chart, I should wear a Medium, but the Small fit perfectly. The elastic in the waist band could be a little bit more beefy, but as is, it's not binding or restrictive. I wore them to work today with a sweater as leggings. I squat a lot at work and didn't feel like I had to be constantly pulling them back up again, so I'm optimistic that they will hold up through lots of other movement as well. I have a 30" inseam and these end an inch or two above my ankle. I'm pretty psyched with that because everything else I get is too long, but I thought that might be helpful to include for taller gals. I think if you're putting a pair of tall socks over top of them, it's not much of an issue though. It might even better as it would cause less chafing depending on how tall your boots are.
***
These are the perfect base layer! I'm generally a size small or 2 in women's and I ordered these in a small and they fit perfect. I wore them last elk season in the CO mountains and they were the perfect addition to the Alturas Guide Pant on the cooler days. Not too bulky so I could still hike, but stay warm while we were stopped glassing.
***
Well made with nice seams. Fusion pattern is fantastic. Sadly the sizing was off. According to First Lite I should be a medium as I usually wear a size 10 (8 if you're flattering me), but these leggings were way too big and saggy. Also their midweight feels a bit more like lightweight, not nearly as thick as Smartwool's 250 midweight which is the weight I was hoping for. But if you're looking for a lightweight merino long underwear, this is it. Just size down.

Customer Testimonials

I have used the Women​'s Fanatic bibs and jacket all season. This is a superb system and I highly highly recommend. Before wearing these, I had gotten used to getting cold in my stand much quicker than I liked no matter how much I layered. Not so with this Sitka line! It kept me toasty warm on even the coldest mornings I hunted this season. The bibs have a ton of great features. The fabric is soft and nice and quiet. The full leg zips were great for putting on over my big boots with ease. The extra insulation in the seat area was brilliant. As I said, I did not get cold (and I typically get cold quite easily). Thigh pocket placement is spot on (when walking, sitting, in harness, all the time). It made my release aid and other small gear easy to access as soon as I got into the stand. The chest pockets are also an excellent feature. The straps are easily adjustable and comfortable. I would say these bibs fit true to size and are cut just right. I am super pleased with this system and with Sitka's women's line in general.
***
Absolutely phenomenal piece for the bitter cold days that I hunted the Kansas Rut. From 13 to 54 degrees on stand, I was comfortable when paired with the heavyweight baselayers. The windstopping GoteTex saved the hunt allowing me to stay on stand longer. With four zippered leg pockets, I had plenty of room to stash small gear that I needed on my way to the stand. The soft chest hand pockets were a welcomed feature when wearing minimum layers on the long walk in. Soft, quiet, flexible material for total range of motion. Plenty of adjustability with the shoulder straps and the interior waist adjustment belt. Definitely my "Go-To" for cold weather hunts.
***
Very warm and tailored well for a woman’s shape.
Warning: Women with longer torsos will probably want to go up one size than what the chart tells you otherwise you may have some unwelcome pressure in a very sensitive area. Unfortunately this ads links to the legs as well.

Customer Testimonials

It's made out of (in my opinion) the best fabrics available today. Their products are not cheap, and kryptek has placed a small premium on it because it is camo. 

The thing is, if you look at it, think it's outrageous and don't recognize the Scholler name then it's not for you, or meant for you quit honestly. The bonus is you don't have to buy it.

Customer Testimonials

Great pants, can’t say enough about them. I have been wearing the kids line for a while and was pumped when the women’s stuff came out. All the pockets are in the right places, super quite zippers with pulls that dont do weird things when I have my pack on. I also wore my leg holster for a few days and no pilling or binding on the pants. I love Sitka Gear. Hard to find in stock anywhere but I just took a shot in the dark with my size and orderded online. Love the knee pads, at first you think they are dumb but come in so handy.
***
These pants work pretty good. The waterproof areas are great. The only change I would make is adding upper side zipper air vents. That would be great for when you get warm hiking then close the side zipper when glassing.
***
Absolutely love these pants. Seriously the most comfortable pairs of pants I have ever worn and they fit my body better than any pair of jeans. I love the knee pads and the material on the butt of the pants prevents you from getting wet when sitting. They keep you warm in the snow but not too hot during a warmer day. Very breathable. I highly recommend these!
***
These are probably the most thought out pair of women's hunting pants on the market. From the material to the fit, all of it flows together flawlessly. They are an athletic fit and true to size. Hiking long miles, to stalking, climbing and crawling these pants have held up and have years of life let in them. They are the most comfortable pair of women's hunting pants I've ever had and have yet to find anything that compares.

Customer Testimonials

Awesome pants. Wore them for 7 days in a row while doing a float hunt in Alaska. They have enough stretch to move around easily while not feeling baggy. The adjustable hip belt is great and allows for a fitted fit in the waist which is nice when wearing a pack. The fleece lining inside is great and kept me warm under wadders in the boat and hiking around for Alaska fall hunting. The bottom pockets unzip and have a breathable mesh fabric which is awesome if you need to cool down after a hike. For being a heavier pant they breathe well and didn’t hold the odor for a 7 day hunt like other fabrics have in the past. Highly recommend as a pant for cooler temps or if you are sitting in blinds.

***

Próis has really outdone themselves with this new line! Windproof, waterproof, 4 way stretch that moves with you! This line is the most FLATTERING camo I’ve ever owned! I’m so obsessed with the pants! The reinforced knees are amazing as well. My ONLY complaint is the fabric is a little noisy. Wouldn’t stop me from buying though as I planned on using these for my tree stand and ground blind hunts where I’m sitting still. The camo is absolutely amazing! I absolutely love that this is a women’s exclusive camo and that it was scientifically designed to work everywhere. Would highly recommend these to any serious female hunter!

***

These pants fit the female form so perfect! I'm loving the 4 way stretch. Talk about comfort, it's like wearing a pair of your favorite pajama pants that look great on you.

The standard pockets are deeper than normal which is great. The adjustable waist and ankles make the fit perfect for you. The zips on the legs help you to tuck them over your boots easily.

Customer Testimonials

I love the insulated hunting bib overalls they are warm and comfortable. The only thing that I would suggest is offer different lengths, because the ones that I ordered were too long. But I love them

***

These are amazingly warm, which is great for me because I get so cold so quickly. I used them a few days after getting them to shovel snow when the temperature was hovering around zero. My legs and body stayed warm and dry for the two hours I was outside. My only complaint about these is that camo was the only option. I wish a solid color was available.

***

I love these bibs. They fit great. The material moves easily and doesn’t make noise. I wore them in 14 degree weather with strong winds for a windchill of 6 degrees and I wasn’t cold at all. On the other hand, I’ve worn them in the 40 degree weather and haven’t been hot. These are a great buy!!!

***

Man these are great! I just wish there was a smidgen more room in the waist length for my long torso. Perhaps longer straps? Otherwise, it fit well & a lot better than a man's set. I am not hippy buy I definitely felt more feminine & comfortable in these. If you DO have larger hips, size up. You will want the seat room.

***

Bought these when weather was unexpectedly cold on a nightshift jobsite. The fit is good, and they are easy to get on and off. I am not really happy with the WEIGHT, as they are a bit heavy and cumbersome to walk in.. This did keep me quite warm, and I DO look forward to wearing in hunting season next year when I will be mostly Sitting in a Deer Stand! I love the pattern, and the pockets, and the long zippers !

Customer Testimonials

These are good bibs, but I did have to exchange them for one size up. I normally wear a small in all hunting gear, but I needed these in a medium in order to bend/move around. i was only wearing one thin base layer, and the smalls were very constricting. I have a pair of women's Cabela's brand bibs that I like a little better because they are a bit thicker, but so far I have not been cold in these.

***

The quality and material of these pants are outstanding! However; they are not waterproof, and take quite a while to dry once wet. The insulation rating I would say is good for weather in the positives, anything below zero you definitely feel it. I love the pants and jacket tho so they will be perfect for bowhunting in my area. Overall great pants if you are looking for something on the lighter side but still insulated!

***

I was looking for a pair of bibs that weren't too expensive but were also a great buy. These are perfect! They fit amazing and has a strong fabric that doesn't catch or rip easily on thorns! They have 2 boob pockets that are great for holding your phone, keys, a small flashlight (etc.). The only thing I'd change on these is the insulated hand warmer pockets. They aren't too warm but that what you expect with bids at this price. One more thing I'd recommend is getting a couple sizes bigger than what you normally would, so you can have plenty of room for hoodies, jackets, pants or sweat pants underneath them! I am a small and ended up getting a large to accommodate for all clothing underneath!

Customer Testimonials

I’m impressed by the quality of UA hunting gear. Definitely see the difference and will not go back to bargain brand. These pants fit me perfectly with room to layer and they are also warmer than I expected. My only complaint would be that the zippers on the lower leg and thigh pocket are not waterproof so if you are walking through wet brush it seeps right into the zipper.
***
Most impressed with how QUIET the material is! It's the quietest women's line so far, in my opinion (been wearing UA for years). It's warm without being bulky, and I love the extra stitching on the knees. Waist is a little smaller than normal.

We have included a base layer garment or two to ensure full lower body comfort is catered for. Each of the pants or bibs on this page will be suitable as part of a more extensive layering system.
