For hot weather or active hunting, the Ascent Pant is a mainstay of hunters across the West.
Lightweight and ultra-breathable like the rest of the Ascent line, the Ascent Pant features a quick-drying, 4 way stretch brushed nylon fabric and anti-stink Polygiene® treatment to keep you cool when the heat is on. The Ascent Pant expels heat and perspiration to keep you comfortable as you chew through the early season miles in big terrain or hot weather.
Scrambling or bushwhacking through blown down timber requires zero restrictions. The Ascent Pant's low profile waist band won’t chafe or bunch, and articulated knees are shaped for hunters on the move. Knee pad pockets offer optional protection if desired, and all pockets are mesh backed for added ventilation, and a gusseted crotch provides full range of movement.

POLYGIENE® ODOR CONTROL TECHNOLOGY
Layering is a science with SITKA's CORE system of next-to-skin products. Each of the fabric weights—light, mid, and heavy—wicks away moisture to keep you warm and dry, while Polygiene® technology safely and permanently neutralizes odors using naturally antimicrobial silver salt. Build the foundation of your system with a specialized base layer designed to suit your environmental conditions.
Sweat is odorless but helps create the perfect environment for odor-causing bacteria to multiply. When sweat mixes with odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, odor results.
Polygiene uses naturally occurring silver salt (silver chloride) made from recycled silver, a highly effective antimicrobial agent, to safely inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi. However, Polygiene does not affect the natural bacterial flora of your skin. And without odor-causing bacteria, you stay fresh.
