Field Pants on Sale at Cabela's — $7.88

You read that right. The price on these M-65 Camo Field Pants is just $7.88. Only two sizes are offered at this bargain price — Medium (Tall) and Large (Tall). Cabela’s claims these are genuine M-65 style field trousers, like those used by the U.S. Military. A couple of buyers said that the pants, while excellent, are thinner than true Army issue. Nonetheless, they are comfortable and sturdy, cut from rugged, heavy-duty nylon-cotton rip-stop fabric. NOTE: these pants do NOT have normal cuffs. Instead there is a drawstring. This helps keep snow and brush out. The Cabela’s M-65 pants are a good choice for hunting and general outdoor wear. They are cut very generously, with adjustable waist tabs.

Here are some user reviews:

CptSlab: “These are just like the M-65 field pants used in the military. They are cut baggy in the legs, thighs and seat for flexibility and to accomodate an optional button-in poly liner for cold weather wear. The material is very tough. There are plenty of pockets and adjustment tabs at the waist. Without the liner they are great for spring and fall.”

9Scout: “I have gone through several pairs of these over the years and I love the extra room and flexibility of these pants. They allow for extra layers underneath in cold conditions or just for single-layer coverage on warmer hunts. The tied ankle cuffs keep seeds and snow out of your boots also.”

Farv: “these pants are tough, have enough pockets for the job, and you can’t get a better all-round camo than good old Woodland. I would have given them 5 stars but the sizing is off — sizing chart suggested I was a large but that was way too big and had to re-order a medium.”
