Timberlines with kuiu hip vents would make my heart go pitter patter.If the Timberlines had hip zips I'd sell my Catalyst Foundary pants in a heartbeat for them. I just switched over this year and do a fair bit of hiking in the winter and I prefer a bunch of little details on the Timberlines, but the hip zip feature outweighs the other minor differences to me.
If you have worn pants with vents, you would wonder why all hunting pants don’t have vents, they make a huge difference. Especially in the heat, but even when it’s not hot, you are climbing, heating up, open the vents, then you get to your glassing spot, close the vents and stay warmer because you aren’t wet with sweat.Why would a guy need hip vents? Come on man.
