Didn't cut the mustard!!!
The material that doesn't have the protective layer is too thin. I was on a pheasant hunt in Geddes, SD and while pushing through waist high brush I picked up stickers and thorns that went right through the material and into my base layer. I was uncomfortable the whole rest of the hunt and had to switch back to my thicker, better quality pair the second day of the hunt, Thank goodness I brought my other pair of pants.
