We Love It: Girls With Guns Carbine Pants
By Ashley Thess | NRA Women Assistant Editor
Whether you’re dressing for a day at the range or getting ready for a summer hike, these pants have you covered!
The problem I’ve found with most hiking pants is that they’re either too warm, or make you feel like you’re wearing a giant plastic bag. Finding pants made of the right fabric isn’t easy. However, when you’re walking in thick woods with branches, brambles and poison ivy out to get you, long pants are a must no matter how hot it is.
I also insist on wearing long pants on the range to protect my legs from hot casings and gun grease residue. So it was a bonus that I discovered pants that work equally well for my range days and my outdoor adventures. If your summer plans include venturing outside, shooting prone on the range, or any other activity where your legs could use protection, check out these new Girls with Guns Carbine pants. Made from 93/7 polyester/spandex blend, the four-way stretch fabric is breathable. Its fit is articulated (which translates to “comfortable”) and are cut on a flattering asymmetrical design. A water-repellent finish allows water droplets to roll right off, so if you encounter a stream on your hike—like I did—you won’t hesitate to splash right through.
These semi-fitted pants feature an adjustable pull-tab waistband and inseam, meaning they come in your size. The hook-and-loop adjusters are especially handy if you’re carrying concealed. A handgun tucked into the IWB RH holster is easily tightened by the straps, keeping the firearm more secure and flush against your body. If you’re of less-than-average height and are tired of tucking mounds of extra fabric into your boots in order to walk without tripping, your struggle is over. The easy-snapping adjustable hem ranges from 28” to 35”, allowing the straight leg cut to sit perfectly over a pair of boots…..
