    I think the "ensemble" on the far right has real potential as a handler's "top." Sometimes ya want black, sometimes ya want white...here you have both!!!

    You need to add the leggings for the warmth, maybe they come in black for some good contrast on blinds.

    Just looked over the 511 pants that Montview recommended. They have one with a "drop rear" via zipper that I am interested in. No more pants around the ankles out in the woods!!!

    Thank you Jennifer. They look like great pants. It is hard to find lower waist pants for the field. Yes, I have no waist and narrow hips and I am offiically old this year.

    You guys leave my ho boots out of this--those are strictly for foo foo shows.
    Nancy, I wouldn't call these briar proof, but I think the fabric weave is tight enough to stand up to rose thorns. So far I haven't had any thing stick to them, but the finish is kind of slick, so I don't see that picking off burrs would be difficult. And yes, the waist is higher - the pants pull on like sweat pants and there is a draw string waist, which I didn't like at first, but it's growing on me, especially when I want to loosen it up

    Julie,

    Those tactical pants look great! Do you prefer one over the other? I use those light fishing pants in the summer with zip off legs, so looking for something heavier to keep warm this winter....

    Any suggestions for mens pants from the ladies? What do you like to see in a mens pant when training?

    Branching off a bit…..
    I had this same idea years back, at a yard sale I found a mostly new high school basket ball official shirt. My size! I thought it would be the perfect handlers shirt, like you.
    But it turned out that at close distance it was a moot point as some folk intentionally purchase camo handling coats with the niftiest new patterns. In an attempt to hide from their dogs.
    And at end of the field, long distance. The black and white side by each other, turned into a gray shirt.
    You think it is nifty, but it’s not. Now I have seen a handlers jacket that has one black stripe shoulder to wrist on the inside of the arm. That, from my bird boy perch was very effective. It was a female handler running up here. I do not know who.
