    Dry back pants

    I want to get some Dry back pants. Preferably longs that zip off to shorts. I've seen plenty of waterproof pants, but i get too sweaty in those. Just want to be able to sit down and not get a wet arse. Any suggestions on brands and where to get them?

    Swazi or ridgeline spring to mind, they are longs or shorts so it doesnt really help the zip off issue. Heaps of the $99 clothing packs have them included.

    I just use a shopping bag..... pretty simple to use too

    Put it on the ground where ever you want and sit on it ..... when your finished pick it up, roll it up and put it in your pocket for next time.

    i just wear running shorts...they dry out real fast and good when walking. if the weather turns cold i just pull out my thermal longs out of my daypack. works for me.

    At the moment I just wear shorts with thermals, but it would be nice not to have a wet arse at all. Using a shopping bag, yes, that would work, but i gotta have an excuse to spend some money!

    That is a simple, practical and smart solution but has the noise of the bag ever caused issues while in hunt mode?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Spend the money on something else and you'll most likely receive a free dry seat to carry the purchase in.

    Not while I have had my ample arse parked on it.

    When not in use it gets stowed in the day pack.... I've never heard it rustle in there either.

    I carry a 'bum sized' piece of closed-cell foam (think old sleeping mat off-cut) - comfy and warm. - I use a piece thinner than the 10 or 15mm sleeping pad - say 3mm thick - helps than my bro manufactures the stuff! It's also handy in pack/bum bag as it insultaes cold drink, protects binos from knocks whatever
    Orders taken!!
    and yes those h&f dry arse jobs do feel like nappies. wet nappies. uugh.

    I just bought Cactus shorts - tough and sit anywhere. Not as noisy as I expected either. V happy w them. thermals if its cold etc
