I'm thinking that something they use in the camo dye shrinks these pants when they are being stored from season to season. I don't even wash them but every year my pants get a little tighter. Next year, who knows, they may not fit at all? crazy It's gotta be the dye in the pants is all I can figure. Anyone else ever have this problem with mysteriously shrinking pants? wink grin

No It's not the dye It's that washing machine. Our washer also eats socks.

It even happened to my boots. They got too narrow during the off season. Guns getting heavier also.

I think it's a conspiracy by the antis to discourage hunting. Just sayin.

I think you're on to something. The dye used on my leather belts does the same thing.

How strange that ye should mention this very subject! Only the other day, having cleared some drawers out, I thought I'd wear these particular camo's. Put my legs in them. Pulled them up. Il Morte!!! I couldn't even get them up my hips! No way on gods little green earth were the two sides of the waist band coming anywhere Remotely near each other either!

Took me a moment to realise I'd put them away maybe eight years ago. LOT of stout under the bridge since then blush

I was thinking it must be the 20% oxygen in our atmosphere causing the problem, even my t shirts are shorter in the front. My power hunter goose blind even shrank and its never been washed or dried. grin

Get a good pair of running shoes. It seems to make all my clothes fit better, especially my pants. Who knew?
grin


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.
