Hard-wearing soft shell for cooler climates, the Bora series is designed to keep you warm against wind and moisture without over heating. Fabricated with four-way stretch material, every cut line of this series allows for maximum movement and full range of motion. This abrasion resistant shell features a windproof and water resistant laminate and Schoeller®’s revolutionary fabric technology c-change®. The c-change® fabric has the ability to actively react to your bodies changing temperature and moisture levels. The polymer structure of the c-change® membrane opens or closes in response to the corresponding activity levels. As activity levels increase, excess heat and moisture that your body generates is allowed to escape to the outside air as the polymer structure opens. During periods of LOW activity levels such as sitting and glassing, the polymer structure contracts and keeps the heat close to the body. Shivering and chilling are effectively prevented. The Bora series is one of our most advanced products to date. It was designed with the hard-core hunter in mind and created to traverse some of the most challenging environments. It is the perfect combination of wind, water and moisture management technology.
I am 6'2" 180 lbs, typically run a 32/33 waist in most pants. I ordered the Bora pants in 34x35 to allow room for layers; they fit great. Wore these pants on a 12 day hunt in Kodiak AK, where conditions ranged from snowy single digit wind chills, to 10 hours of sideways rain, to 45 degrees and sunny. I wore these pants through ankle deep muskeg and the nastiest alder and thorn bushes, and they held up without any holes, rips, or tears. I was always comfortable with range of motion and completely impressed.
If Kryptek gets to making these pants in coyote, grey, or black, I will be buying more!

The pants were great, just got back from a four day hunt in MT. Everything from 60 degrees to 20 degrees raining and snowing. Even the Altitude pattern works awesome is the timber with some pine grass and sagebrush. The only problem I had was they are a bit loud for a stalk in archery. I think it is just the fabric used to make them water resistant. The other thing I noticed is the pants run quite baggy. They are slim fitting around the thighs, but from the knee down very baggy. Wearing gaiters helps but wish they were more athletic cut or slim cut. That would help cut down on the noise too as they wouldn't rub together with each step.

these pants are everything as stated- they fit very well, are comfortable and breathe well. Don't know how tough they are as I haven't worn them in brush yet. They could use one zippered back pocket.

"My go to huning pants!"
In a couple words. Warm, comfortable, dry, durability. But I have to say more these are my favorite hunting pants. I don't big game hunting without them, they outperformed all my expectations and really set a new bar for what hunting clothing should be. They really are phenomenal I personally love the stretch of the fabric it makes stalking and hiking to get to animals so much quieter and easy. I have no movement limitations almost like wearing nothing at all. I highly recommend these pants and would advise buying these as your first pair of pants if your a new Kryptek customer. If the bora collection is your first choice of hunting gear from Kryptek then I swear you will become a die hard fan!

These pants really fill in the gap from mid nov. all the way to the end of the year, the little extra insulation compared to the Tora makes these pants great for colder late season hunting, I find them a little to think for September hunting in Idaho, but as soon as the temps start dropping these are my go to pants.

"Best soft shell pant and comfy"
Used these in summer Scouting and on a December goat hunt. Had dilabor 2 and these are definitely a step up. Also super comfortable. Zipper failed on pocket and will be going to get repaired. Minor issue.
