Marmot Scree Pant Review
The Marmot Scree Pant aint your Grandma softshell. This is what I wear when I am called out for Search and Rescue needs. If you are not sure what you are going to come up against, the Marmot Scree is a good call. The softshell allows for a good stretch in the knees and hips for supreme range of motion. The M3 fabric is abrasion resistant and holds up well to the granite slab butt scooting. The Marmot Scree pants are water resistant and breathe so well I can toss on a wool base layer underneath and I am good to go whether it be a winter walk with the dog or ice climbing. Most definitely a multi-use, multi-season pant. The Marmot Scree have the standard hand pocket on each side and a thigh pocket with a Velcro closure. They also have elastic in the waist which gathers only on the backside of the pant. I dont particularly care for the look of the gather, but you cant really see it if you buy the black ones. The snug and stretchy fit of the waist feels soft and secure. This makes the belt loops superfluous, as the pants hug your waist, but you could wear a belt if you were that style-y. I do love the calf zippers. They makes accessing your boots simple and the snap closure at the end keeps the cuff tight to eliminate wind, water, or snow wafting up your pant leg. You could also unzip the calves for ventilation in the warmer months. Beware the inseam is rather short, so you tall folks may be SOL. I am 5'9" and they have me covered, but just barely. Marmot Scree Pants in a nutshell: M3 fabric is abrasion resistant, water resistant, and breathable Multi season use, good stand alone pant or layering piece Allows full range of motion comfortably in knees and hips Long leggers beware, the inseam in short Calf zippers for ventilation in summer or tack down in colder months …and they make you butt look good Click here to check them out, it will be worth your time.
