Big. Way big.

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

I wish these pants were listed by the size Marmot has inside the pant - "36 XL". Had I known the 36 was an extra large I would have sized down. The pitfalls of shopping online. Really nice pant, great color for backcountry hiking/hunting/etc.

My favorite pair of casual winter pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 30 S

This is my favorite soft shell winter pants. It keeps you warm, does not over heat. Breathes exactly as I expected. The lining is SUPER comfortable and has no irritation. I loved it so much that I ended buying a second pair. I have used it for hiking, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and doing yard work. The pants have kept up really well even after some abuse.

It's pretty much true to size, arguably runs SLIGHTLY large. I typically wear size 31 pants, but I bought a size 30, and it fit perfectly.

Great pants

I love these pants!!! I originally bought them for spring skiing. And they are great for that. The ankle zipper allows them to fit over ski boots. I have since worn them hiking and climbing and am very happy with them for that as well. Fit is as expected.

Great All Around Pants

Best pair of pants I own for cool to cold weather. Great for the city and the trail. The high waist keeps the cold out.

Perfect Pants for the Cold

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34 long

I was looking for a pair of pants that would protect me from precipitation and yet breath when I'm out hiking in the winter. These pants are perfect! I couldn't be any happier with them. I like that they run long. I'm 6'5" and the longs fit perfectly. They are comfortable and very well made.

Great utilitarian pant

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34 short

I like, but don't love these pants. They are super comfy and a bit more roomy than expected. I haven't yet done any hiking in them yet, but they are great for climbing at the gym. Good looking and double nicely for a casual day at the office. Great pant for the price.

Good Cold Weather Pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34/Long

I like these pants, they're not quite as thick as I'd hoped they'd be but they're still pretty nice. Just pair them up with a good base layer and they're great. They shed water, snow and wind really well.
The fit is really good, I'm 6'4" and around 210lbs and I bought 34/long. I'm more impressed with the fit of them than anything else.

Amazing

Great fit. Am 6'3" tall and the Long worked great. Feels great and the exterior texture did not even bother the Mrs. Received as an Xmas gift 3 weeks ago. Have worn 4 times since and hopefully they will hold up to all the wear.

Relaxed Fit

Here's another photo to give you an idea of how they look on

Relaxed Fit

Dry and Durable

My customer loves these pants! He's put them to good use on several challenging snow ascents and they kept him nice and dry, never tore, and never slipped down or interfered with his climbing in any way.

This is a non insulated pant, so he definitely had some warm baselayers on underneath, but they did the job of blocking wind and repelling the snow.

Check him out in action from his summit up Mt. Baldy and let me know if I can help get you in the right size!

Great multi use pant

  • Fit: True to size

Purchased these for my husband for Christmas and he loves them. Has worn them hiking, walking the dogs, lounging around the house and I'm guessing he will end up wearing them to work. It hasn't been a full week and he has already ordered another pair.

Great Pants

These pants are great. They feel good, wear good, and perform well. I wore these in New Mexico while snowshoeing and they were fantastic. They aren't necessarily made for warmth but they did a pretty good job. Good quality and true to size. Can't go skiing in these because they won't fit over ski boots.

Solid pants

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34/Short

Nice all around pant - tough, light and comfortable. They fit over my boots with the zips closed. The pocket zippers are decent with covers/overlays, though they do get hung up a little if you try opening or closing with one hand (not a big deal). The pants are high-wasted, so tucking in a base layer shirt works well. The only downside is the lack of odd sizes. I wear a 33 waist so the 34 is a little loose. However, my inseam is a 31, and the short size is spot on.

Nice

These are great pants. Here's why:
1. The are listed as a regular fit, but I would say that they are more slim fitting that flatters the wearer well.
2. Leg pocket is a perfect place to keep my iphone plus.
3. Construction appears to be top notch.
4. They have a lightweight liner that gives them a nice weight, but yet are still quite lightweight overall.
5. I have gotten lots of compliments.

On the downside, these are not terribly warm. I would call them 3 season only. Overall 5 stars for their intended use!

Love em

    Fits true to size and great pocket design

    Nice pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large (regular length)

    Great material. Very comfortable. Haven't had them long enough to comment on durability. They run long. My usual pant size is 34w, 34l. In sizing by S, M, L, XL etc I usually get L Long (when available). However, the longs were too long for me. The waist was fine. I exchanged for L regular and they are fine. The zippers at the bottom don't really enable putting them on or taking them off with shoes on.

    Nice material but poor construction

    I really like the fit and material of this pant, but the stitching on the crotch ripped out while I was hiking in the alpine. I only wore them a handful of times before the 2 inch rip started. I considered sending them back, but I needed them for a weeklong river trip, so i sewed them up. Hopefully my seamster skills hold them together because if they do, I'll have a great pair of outdoor pants. If they had a gussetted crotch they'd be about perfect.

    Nice material but poor construction

    Excellent and versatile softshell pants

    I think I've found my hiking/backpacking/climbing pants for all but the most extreme conditions. The Scree is incredibly versatile. After performing very well on a couple of day hikes, I gave them a much tougher test on a hike to base camp on Mt Rainier (Camp Muir).

    A couple miles of incredibly steep snow fields and temperature regulation was perfect. It beads water fairly well as long as you're not in a constant downpour. 10,054 feet at base camp it was around 36 degrees. Lounging on the rocks I felt perfectly comfortable without a thermal layer underneath. Then it started snowing with near whiteout conditions. Still never got cold and they did not soak through, even after several hundred feet of glisading on the way down! Suffice it to say, I love these pants.

    I am 6'2'' about 185 pounds. I got the 34 long and initially when I tried them on I was worried they were too long (which is very rare). But once I tried them with boots I realized they were perfect. They have a nice alpine fit so they're not baggy, yet the mobility is 100% with how stretchy they are. Scrambling and even climbing are no problem at all.

    Highly recommended!

    Wish for elastic waist band.

    • Size Bought: 32/Reg

    Overall, great pants that I'd recommend to anyone. The waist is kind "high water" style, but frankly that's what I want when climbing so I can tuck my shirt in without it pulling out. I would, however, prefer some elastic in the waist band so the pants will stay snug and up without having to wear a belt. (I tend to be between sizes.)

    I usually wear these for winter/spring climbing, so I preferred the longer length to go over my boot tops. I also usually wear some thermal tights under. I'd personally never wear these for warm weather hiking--too hot and I have other more suitable pants for that.

    Comfortable & Versatile

    Great fit, good looks & comfort. Found these pants will do double-duty in the backcountry or on the golf course. I initially balked at the price but if they hold up, they should be a good investment.
