A mountain-woman's best friend.

Your mountainous lifestyle knows no bounds and has no restrictions. That's why the Marmot Women's Scree Softshell Pant complements your year-round active pursuits. The M3 Softshell fabric that makes up this pant is Marmot's most breathable fabric in the M-series. The durable nylon fabric makes sure you don't tear the pant up while you tear the mountain up. And a bit of elastane gives all the mobility you need so you don't have anything holding you back. This softshell sheds water, too, in case you come across a rain shower during your adventures.

An athletic fit pulls the Scree close to your legs and waist to reduce bulk without hindering mobility. The elastic waist is harness friendly, and  ankle zippers help you put on and take off this slim-fitting pant even with shoes on. And the thigh pocket can hold your phone so you have room for your hands while you enjoy the view on top of the mountain you love.

Good for big thighs

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 2/Reg

I disagree with the review that says its not good for curves. I have a crazy hard time finding pants that fit and these fit like a glove. In most outdoor brands a size 0 is too big for my waist... I pirchased a size 2/reg. I have a 25 inch waist, 32 inch hips, 21.5 inch thighs. Typically if pants fit in the thigh there are inches too large for my waist. These are higher waisted which I love, perfect for curvy women nothing spilling out. These are even slightly snug in the waist for me, I think with wear they will loosen a little and be perfect. Havent field tested them yet but it is nice softshell stretch pants fabric, nice zip pockets, I do wish it had some rear pockets.

Can I use these for snowboarding?

Hey Stacey, these pants are designed for climbing and hiking more so than inbound skiing or snowboarding. Most ski or snowboard pants will be both waterproof and have a gaiter system at the cuff to keep snow from getting into your boots and water from penetrating the fabric. If you are looking for snowboard pants feel free to reach out to me directly and I'm happy to help. weads@backcountry.com 801-523-4052

Not for curves

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I'm 5'7" 135 lbs, hourglass figure, bought a medium. Very gapped in the waist and had to send back. Otherwise, great material/construction.

Perfect for skate skiing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8

My husband bought me these soft-shell pants to wear for skate skiing. They are light, which is perfect for skate skiing because it's a workout, and I only have to wear a light pair of workout pants under them,. They are stretchy, which is good if you are going to use these for anything active, like skate skiing or hiking. They are high wasted, and have more of a "traditional" or active fit, but again, they are stretchy so they don't feel too tight. If you are between sizes, you may want to consider going with the bigger size because of the fit. I have worn them several times since purchase and they still look and work great!

Love them!

  • Fit: True to size

Comments regarding fit were so varied, I had no idea what to expect. I'm 5'3 and a curvy size 6. They fit perfectly. They stretched as needed but retained their shape. Love the higher waist, no more exposing more than I want to those behind me. The pants looked brand new after a day of bushwacking in the desert with cactus and catclaw and climbing up and falling down scree. Thumbs up on these pants.

Thanks for the review Cindy!

Perfect for multi-day backpacking trips

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 4/reg

I bought these pants in two colors, both size 4/reg. I wore them on a 5-day trip to the Grant Tetons; we were in heavy snow the entire trip. These pants fit me somewhat loosely, but I wanted to be able to put a base layer on underneath, so that's fine with me. If you have curves/hips/thighs, these pants are fantastic, I've found that Marmot does a great job designing for women's bodies, especially with pants. If you have a straighter build, these will probably be too loose/baggy on you in the hip and thigh area.

Now for how these pants did on my trip: frankly, they were wonderful. They didn't smell at all, even after multiple days of use. The overall construction of the pant is impressive; seams are sturdy, the fabric resists chafing/ripping, and the fabric is breathable (I never overheated). That being said, please note that these pants are NOT waterproof. I brought a pair of rain pants with me, and you WILL need a waterproof shell if you are trudging through snow or rain that's heavier than a light mist. However, they do dry very quickly. Overall, fantastic pant. 4/5 stars because although they're tagged "water-resistant", I found that anything more than a light mist went right through the pants.

Comfortable softshell pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: 6

Great softshells for mountaineering layering, hiking, etc. I've worn for a road trip around Iceland, day hiking, and climbing Mount Rainier. Stretchy enough to fit a baselayer underneath. Runs slightly small (I'm usually a 4) but the 6 was a perfect fit and length. Love the variety of pockets.

Com si, com sa

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 8 long

Not bad, not good. It took a couple tries to get the right fit with these pants. I sized up to a 10L based on all the reviews saying they ran small. They were HUGE. The 8L is slightly large, but not so big that they fall down. Sizing down to a 6 would probably fit me best, but it would not be as comfortable to add a base layer underneath. I like my outdoor gear to have some extra room, but still have a tailored fit. This material does stretch as you wear the pants, but it makes layering base layers underneath easy and comfortable. I would barely consider the inseam to be a long. These barely hit above my ankle, which isn't a huge problem while wearing winter boots. For reference I wear a 29/8 in all Patagonia pants (these all leave a comfortable amount of room. Size 6 fits in the waist, but I do not like the tight things). I wear a 4L in the Prana Halle and 6 in the Kara. I wore these pants for 4 days straight climbing in the Sierras for Thanksgiving. The fit very well with a harness and stood up to monkeying around on rough rock. After a wash they look brand new and do not have any holes or scuff marks. I wish I loved these pants more than I do considering how high the quality is. If you can figure out the sizing you will be adding a solid mountain pant to your wardrobe.

Great quality, weird fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10

I wanted to love these pants so much... the quality is awesome, the material is awesome, the pockets are awesome... but the fit was super funky on me. I'm 5'9" and usually wear a size 10. Athletic build, very straight through the waist/hips and super long slim legs. The 10 fit perfect in the waist but they had some weird poofy thing going on just above the knees that was unflattering enough that I returned them. Bummer because I loved everything else about them!

Thanks so much for this detailed review!

Wife

    likes them too. Feminine yet rugged pant that can be worn outside chopping wood if you can get your wife to pick up an axe.

    Absolutely my favorite, bought 2 pairs

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 4/Reg

    I love these pants so much. It seems like a difficult task to find women's active pants that aren't frumpy and unflattering--but these marmot pants are perfect. They breathe well in the summer and are warm enough for late fall/winter hikes. They're super stretchy and move with you without tearing. I've used them for anything from multi-pitch rock climbs to hikes in torrential downpours. They're not completely waterproof, but water resistant enough to keep you dryer than any other pant I've tried. They do run small, so I had to order a size up than what I normally wear.

    Great

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    Love this pants

    My Mother in Law loves them

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small

    I got these as a gift for my mother in law who told me that she loves them. She said they're comfortable with just enough stretch to fit well throughout without being skin tight or binding. They do an excellent job at keeping her warm and blocking the wind, and on colder days she just throws a base layer under them and they're perfect.

    The only reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is that they seem to run a bit smaller than other items she's gotten from Marmot.

    My favorite pants

    • Size Bought: 8

    Love these pants. I'm 5'11'' with long legs so it is really hard to find long softshell pants and these are perfect. I go cross country skiing, climbing in colder temps and hiking in these pants and I love that they are stretchy to allow for lots of movement and weather-proof enough to keep the wind and the snow out. The pockets are nice and big too! I would recommend these to any mountain lady out there! Wish more companies made pants like this.

    Lightweight comfortable pant

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Size 4 short

    I absolutely love these pants, they are lightweight, flexible and nice and soft. I like how the waist is higher than your average pant these days so you can bend over and move around without worrying about your underwear showing. They are a nice length for me (I purchased the size 4 short and I am 5 ft 3 inches and 120 pounds). I did order up a size because of recommendations and glad I did. They fit perfect and pack up nicely as they don't tend to crease at all. Haven't tried in the rain yet but did run water over them and it just beaded off.

    I love these

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Hmm... all the reviews that say the fit is small, weird, etc don't apply to me! I love them. I am about 5' 8.5" , slim but not skinny, with long legs. The 8 long fits like a dream and looks really nice. I also really like the relatively high waist. I am SO fed up with low-waisted pants that feel like they are falling down! The zipped cuffs fit nicely over the top of my boots too.

    Your pup is so cute, Emily!

    we've been through it all together!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: 6

    these are my go-to pant for nearly any outdoor activity. i spend summers in denali, and am hiking for work and/or pleasure, literally every day. when its lightly raining, these pants are perfect and dry quickly. i love the soft and warm pockets for cooler days.

    more recently, these have been my winter companions on big snowshoe treks in the right conditions. they aren't waterproof, but they are great for bluebird days when you know you'll be working hard on the ascent. layered with an icebreaker bottom, these pants are perfect for a big hike on a cold, clear afternoon.

    i love the fit, personally. they sit high on the waist and are flattering through the leg. i am normally a size small, but i wear these pants in a 6. as the day wears on they sometimes ride down, which makes the fit awkward, but if i keep them sitting high, i find them to be super flattering.

    we've been through it all together!

    Hi Emily...how wind resistant were these pants?

    Sadly, had to return

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I ordered the marmot scree pants in both6 and 8, thinking one would fit. Not the case! The fit is weird, sort of puffy in the thighs like jodphurs. Also, I thought they were short for a Regular.

    Runs small

    Based on sizing chart wife should wear 4 with some room for comfort/movement, but they were far too tight. Make sure to size up.
