Review: Orvis Upland Softshell

When upland bird hunting, you face a variety of conditions, from open fields to nasty brush. Orvis’s Upland Hunting Softshell Pants repeatedly rise to the occasion. The outer shell is water-resistant, plus an extra layer on the front protects against briars. Vented legs for warm days, a breathable base layer, and unrestricted movement make these the most versatile hunting pants I own. $180.
