how would you compare the insulation in the scarab pant to the titan?

Responded on

The Titan pants are going to be substantially warmer than the Scarab pants. I have the Scarab pants - think of a softer-faced version of the Gore-Tex Pro Shell (this is a Gore-Tex Softshell pant) with a light layer of fleece bonded to the inside. They are definitely very nice, but I personally think that they are only a little bit warmer than a standard pair of gore-tex hardshell pants. The Titan pants on the other hand have Primaloft insulation sandwiched between a Gore-Tex shell and an inner lining. These are going to be exceptionally warm - perhaps even too warm in temperatures above 0* F for most people. While comfort at different temperatures is going to differ from person to person, I've skiied comfortably in the Scarab pants with the wind chill factor around 0* F with a warm baselayer (I was using a powerstretch tight).
