History tells us de Soto was the Spanish explorer who discovered the Mississippi River. Ducks tell us DeSoto is a critical refuge along the Missouri River on the Iowa/Nebraska border. After a few cold fronts, DeSoto often hosts over 100,000 waterfowl, but cold fronts doesn't adequately describe hunting season weather on the Iowa/Nebraska border. Waders one day, and layout blinds the next. That's the nature of waterfowl hunting. Nothing beats a layer of fleece in waders, and weather-resistant in a layout. In either case, the DeSoto Pants Stealth-shell outer combined with the coral fleece liner will keep you warm, dry and...COMFORTABLE. Legs are articulated for ease of movement, and lower side zips easy access to boots. Zippered hand and rear pockets round out the finest women's fowling pant ever made. If waterfowling calls for it, you can do it in DeSotos.
