upland pants for a tall guy?

8 posts in this topic

Any other tall guys out there who have found good pants for beating the brush? I can't seem to find anything with an inseam longer than 34" (I need 36"). Gander, Cabelas, LLBean, etc all come in right at that 34" mark, even for their "long" sizes. I just need an extra inch or two at the ankle.

I've been using double-knee Carhartts since I started hunting upland, and they work ok, but tend to catch thorns more than I'd like. And with the rain this weekend I've been wishing for something more water-resistant.

Any suggestions? Thanks...

How tall are you? I'm 6'4"+ and the LL Bean with 34" inseam works fine. With hunting boots you really don't need pants as long as you might think. Another option (which I prefer) is to wear jeans and then chaps. You can get long chaps too.

I got 36x36 Brown Duck Cloth Carharts at Fleet Farm last year. Put another pair on the Xmas list too.

I thought about chaps but was hoping for something a little lighter.

I'm a hair over 6'4" and have made 34" inseam pants work in the past. I do a lot of grouse hunting and am always dealing with ticks, so was hoping for a slightly longer leg.

I love Bean because of their guarantee and all around quality but I tried on some Gander 34" pants yesterday and may end up going that way because of convenience and price. We'll see how they hold up...

Thanks guys...

Scheels brand upland pants. I am 6-9 36" inseam and these talls work for me pretty good. They are tough I have used them for going on three years too.

I got a pair of whitewater upland chaps from sportsmans guide this spring and stashed them away with my hunting gear as soon as they came.

Tried them on this morning before heading out and found that they were really long. I had them snapped the highest possible snap and they were still 2in too long (I'm a 30in inseam) ended up tying them has high as they would go so they wouldn't drag under my boots. They are really light weight, I put them over a pair of blue jeans and didn't even notice I had them on and not one sticker or thorn got through.

If you are looking for length and really light weight these are the ones. Plus I think I paid 15-20 for the pair.

I would highly recommend them especially when I get my wife to tailor to my specifications...ha ha ha

Filson pants are not hemmed so you can make them whatever inseam length you need, although they are spendy.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
