Thread: Seeland Lochan Polar Trousers

    Seeland Lochan Polar Trousers

    I have been looking for a warm pair of trousers for cold weather high seat work. The above seemed to fit the bill and a local shop can get them at a very good price.

    Anyone have any experience with them or would like to suggest something else as an alternative worth looking at for this job?

    First off must be very warm, an element if breathability and waterproof would be good as well for the dragging afterwards but not as important. These are a bib style but I am not fussed if traditional trouser or bib.

    Thanks.

    I bought 2 pairs of bib and braces out of the Cabelas Bargin cave two years ago. Both water proof and two different thermal values. Love them in the cold. Perfect for sitting around in.
    Including the shipping they came in at under 80.00. The fact the zips run up the side if the leg and can be taken off without removing my boots is Exerlant.
    only draw back is they are both in camo not everyone's cup of tea.

    That was an issue for me as well but not enough not to get a pair re the cammo. I'll have a look at Cabela and Bass Pro. The only concern is getting the sizes wrong. Bought some fishing shirts recently in a large, same size as I bought when over there. Normally a large/XL in shirt size. They were massive! Luckily a mate was going over on holiday and swapped them for a medium. Think I was about 15 the last time a medium fitted!

    If you get the sizes right they are spot on. Bought a pair of Irish Setter boots at Christmas again Bargin cave. 45 spot on. As for cloths I'm a medium and 9/10 fit perfectly. But some of my cold weather cloths are larger.

    I havent tried the Polar trousers but can highly recommend the Pro Hunter Trousers by Harkila. Tried a few other makes which includes Seeland and have been disappointed with quality even though they are made by the same group. Ive had one pair for nearly 4 years now and there excellent I wear them all year round and if its really cold just wear long johns under them.

    You mentioned alternatives jamross, I can thoroughly recommend the montane extreme salopettes for cold weather static type shooting.
    I use them foxing, wildfowling and high seat work, very warm and cosy, takes a few outings to get the pertex outer to soften but absolutely first class.
    Not sure of the current rrp etc, I got mind on eBay for 50 which was a real bargain but well worth a look.

    got a pair of deerhunter husky bib and brace trousers id recommend for you, would happily sit out at a foxden all night in them, like wearing a sleeping bag! bit warm for walking but full length zips and fairly waterproof!

    i can also vouch for the Deer hunter "huskys" as i have used them trekking in manitoba down to -35c. i have to add that probably the best bit of cold weather kit i have is morino wool legging/long johns. bit on the pricey side but hey.. any fool can be cold!

    just to add.. the commonly available morrino "ice breaker" stuff just is not warm enough. if serious try for the more course Argentina wool its warmer and cheaper!!

    hope this helps

    If they are built like my seeland keeper trousers were I would steer well clear I've got some harkila pro hunter trousers which I think are awesome if a little expensive but I think the best value stalking trousers/jackets for about half the price of the harkila are made by hillman I have the outbrave set and think there awesome have a look here
