Disrobing in the field because you're overheating is a pain. Boots come off. Feet inevitably find a sharp rock or wet mess. Squirrels briefly look up from their nuts to look at your...well, it’s just awkward. Our Shift Pants feature full side zips, specifically so you can quickly and confidently remove them from under your outer layer, without ever unlacing a boot. That means you'll never be caught with your pants down when Mr. Buck comes bounding by.
