Alaska Kodiak Island
[NOTE: Please click here for a few words about "trophy hunting". Thank You --- Ralph]
Chase Krone and his Brownie ... and our Failure! Chase Krone wore our MidWeight Pants on his Kodiak Island Brown Bear hunt. Chase had great success on his hunt (10'4" and 28-10/16) BUT the seams of the Pants split at the crotch.
This type of hunt is extremely physical and Chase actually also tore the crotch on a pair of King of the Mountain pants, on the same hunt. We will repair the KOM pants, and new size 40 WeatherWool Pants are on the way to Chase, replacing his size 36.
Pants take more abuse and more stress than jackets, and are more difficult to fit. Chase was wearing a belt, but our biggest problem with Pants has been guys wearing pants hanging low, without a belt, causing huge stress to the crotch when stretching out the legs. The size 40 should give Chase enough room to do a Russian Split. Maybe he'll find his next Brownie on Kamchatka. THANKS for working with us, Chase!! And THANKS for reporting the problem. We really need to know when things go wrong.
