Yes, those old, faded, stained jeans have been with you on lots of fishing trips. And they always come back soggy, heavy and smelly, too. Columbia's PFG Force 12 Pants will relegate those jeans to a more appropriate pastime, like panning for gold or riding horses. With their lightweight, quick-drying fabric treated to repel stains and protect against the sun's damaging rays, they'll feel as good at the end of your trip as they do at the beginning. Once your fishing buddies see how these pants perform, they'll all head straight to West Marine as soon as they get off the water to get a pair for themselves (if they didn't already order a pair at westmarine.com from their smartphones).
These PFG Force 12 Pants are part of Columbia's Performance Fishing Gear (PFG) collection, so you know you're getting pants that are designed for challenging conditions. Plus, they coordinate with all the other Force 12 clothing options so you're comfortable and protected from head to toe.
Omni-Shield® Blood 'N Guts™
An advanced, long-lasting water and stain repellent that features stain release for easy cleanup and repellency that won't affect the breathability or feel of the fabric. Whatever blood or slime doesn't immediately bead up and slide off easily comes out in the wash. Your favorite fishing pants will no longer have that "fishy" look about them.
Utilizing tight weave construction, Ultraviolet absorbers and Ultraviolet reflectors, this fabric technology blocks Ultraviolet A and B rays, helping to prevent sunburn and long-term skin damage. With the PFG Force 12 Pant's ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) rating of 30, you'll be protected all day on the water—without having to reapply messy sunscreen.
