Hello, I'm wondering how these pants compare...
Hello, I'm wondering how these pants compare to the Marmot Scree pants? Having said that, are these an appropriate choice for 3 season mountaineering in the PNW (i.e. Rainier, Cascades, etc.)? I've seen the Marmot Scree pants in the store but haven't seen these yet, and I'm looking for a general purpose climbing pant for the aforementioned objectives. Thanks in advance!
fra. From what I can tell by the limited info on the different product and web pages the Chockstone Pant weighs in at 13oz. where the Scree Pant weighs in at 16oz... otherwise known as 454g. So, obviously the Scree Pant is a bit heavier probably due to a heavier fabric overall. The Chockstone Pant is made with Chockstone Double weave fabric which is a light weight softshell material. They have a Micro-Chamois-lined waist for comfort under a harness, they have an integrated webbing belt with buckle closure for easy fit adjustments, they have an inseam gusset and knee articulation for mobility, have inner twill-tape tabs on the cuffs for resourceful gaiter-making, the air-permeable stretch fabric is highly abrasion resistant, and a DWR finish sheds moisture. They also have UPF 50 sun protection. So, I think for your intended use... look no further! Thanks. I hope this info helped.
