I'm always very hesitant to purchase clothes online, mostly because of my weird body proportions, haha. I'm about a 34x30, and the large/short size fits me PERFECT. On top of that, they are extremely comfortable and forgiving in the waist (stretchy band) if I gain a couple pounds over the holidays. I would have to disagree that the fabric isn't functional. I didn't own a pair of the originals, but I hardly want a stiff pair of pants when I'm hiking on a trail. Now I'm not one to slide around on rocks or run through a thorny patch of bushes (that's what my grouse hunting pants are for), but these breathe and allow for more unrestricted movement. I'm definitely going to buy at least one more pair.

Rob,

Obviously, leather shoes are going to absorb water to some degree. That being said, you can combat this by using a quality leather treatment combined with some water proofing. Here is some stuff that BC sells:

I recently purchased Kiwi Heavy Duty Water Repellent for my leather hunting boots and it seems to work great so far.

I picked up one of these bars just a few days ago at my local REI. I have been a huge Clif Bar fan for the past few years, and these might be my second favorite. I picked up the lemon flavor, and while I didn't really expect it to be brown, it was still quite tasty. If I ever saw these go on sale I wouldn't hesitate picking up a case.
