    Default Sitka Pants

    What ones are without a doubt the warmest? I know nothing about them so educate me.

    Depends if you want their warmest gear for active mountain hunting or the warmest for inactive tree stand hunting. Completely different application and completely different product, based on the intended use.

    Incinerator Bibs maybe? Layering is going to help you out a bunch. Not just the pants. Where are you hunting?

    I'm in the very northwest corner of South Dakota on the Montana border. Mule Deer, Whitetail, Antelope and Elk Hunting.

    I'm paralyzed from the neck down and honestly never considered bibs. With my whole body paralyzed I don't know how easy they would be to get on.

    I don't need the $500 pair of pants they offer but something warmer than my wranglers.

    Considering your situation, perhaps clothing not specifically designed for hunters might fill the needs better. I'm thinking insulated snow pants.

    For me, if I keep my toes/feet warm, then the rest of me is going to stay warm. Electric socks might help you even more than pants

    And taking my presumptions further, I'm guessing that you will be hunting out of a blind, thus getting a portable heater to heat the entire blind will keep you more comfortable,
    No one can go back and make a brand new start, however anyone can start from now and make a new ending.

    Dakota, I hunt that same area. During deer season, our camp is actually right across the state border in ND on a friend's land. I agree with kansasdad that you might be able to find something suitable not geared towards active hunters. I used to hunt in some insulated carharts with thermal underwear underneath when I was younger and had to watch every penny. Even my waterproofing for boots was plastic bags over my socks. If it was really cold, sweatpants could even go ontop of the thermal underwear. Electric heaters in your socks and portable heaters are pretty affordable and effective nowadays. I hope you find something that works well for you. Good luck!
