Heavy pants tend to make you sweat more and that defeats the purpose if your hiking. Try a lighter weight waterproof shell with some mid weight base layers. Any brand of base layer will be good, however, if you do pay attention to odor control, try to pick a base layer that offers some form of it in the materials.
I have tried several pants that are winter weather built. All of them tend to get peeled off within 30 min of hiking due to the heat my body produces when hiking.
If you plan on still hunting they work well for that. Otherwise the above info should be helpful.
