    Pants

    Was thinking of going into Westland to try and tip over one of the mountain goats you fellas have down there but being a more temperate weather hunter I really don't have too many clues with the alpine stuff especially what clothing I'm going to need. I guess gloves and a puffer jacket as well as a good beanie/hat will be a good start but I never have hunted in trousers. I hate getting cold so what do you gents suggest as good trousers or general leg coverings for the colder alpine conditions? I have a pretty good covering of fur but that just doesn't have the insulation factor I had hoped for. Most of the time Im trying to keep cool hunting the general Hawkes Bay area not warm!
    I tried some of the new Stoney Creek Landsborough pants and they looked awesome except the fit was crap. The crotch hung down so low I figure it was modeled on a bull elephants crotch and could double if I wanted to do some crumping down in Flaxmere.

    I go shorts or polar fleece pants.
    I bloody hate long johns but will put em on under pants if really cold.
    There is better out than polar fleece pants but i don't own any.
    Polar fleece pants biggest down fall is weight when wet keeps pulling them down.
    Shorts are great put more layers on top but Spaniards can be a prick

    Shorts and thermals is all ya need for the hill James. Definitely get some warm, camp pants and footwear. It is a must if we are under snow again. Ill try and find a pic from 2 yrs ago and send it to you. At least 3 foot of snow around camp the whole week. Ya dont think we are going to take you where we have too chase you down in dry conditions?

    Dont worry mate if ya get cold, we have a few activities to keep you warm
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    Never under estimate the amount or lightness of the gear James carries round. He has a gadget or can opener for every event (or type of can). He needs to go light to offest the weight of that goddamn fishing weight of a Blaser rifle he insists is top class.

    Yes, it will be a decent advertisment for Blaser on that trip with everyone on it, having the pleasure of owning one. 3 different cals as well.
