Description

The 8000M Pants keep you warm when you're going to a place where your spit freezes before it hits the ground.

The Marmot Men's 8000M Pants provide the high-loft warmth you need to visit the highest, coldest places on earth. The combination of MemBrain waterproof breathable shell and incredibly warm 800-fill insulation make these expedition-grade bibs ideal for places like Everest, K2, or the South Pole. The 8000M Pant's full-length side zips make quick changes easy while wearing boots and crampons, and the reinforced seat and knees give you the kind of durability you need for gnarly ascents. Marmot made the 8000M Pant with baffled construction and an insulated draft tube to eliminate cold spots. Stuff the 8000M Pants in their internal stuff sack for easy storage on your way down from base camp.

Toasty at -40F!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Took the Parka and Pants on my Arctic Ocean Expedition this past February they performed amazingly! Between the overstuffed parka monster hood and easy full zip pants this unit is solid for any extreme cold situation! The Full zips made it a snap to pull on an extra layer while resting without popping off my skis or snow snows. and the oversized jacket fits over every other layer i have making it the ultimate over suit!

Toasty at -40F!

I'm going to be climbing Aconcagua, would these be a good choice for insulated pants?

Responded on

You might not need down pants to summit Aconcagua but it could be good insurance to have them along. I wore heavyweight polartec with heavyweight thermals under, with gaiters and did just fine. I had TNF down top, hood and mitts. Temp can get down to -20 C or lower in summer climbing season. Best thing to remember when selecting your pants is "What am I going to do when its -20, blizzard and I need a dump? Do I really want to take my pants down? Side zips are a major benefit, believe me.

Either these or the Mountain Hardwear Absolute Zero pants would be a good choice for Aconcagua.

Highly recommended for extreme cold conditions

Marmot 8000M down pant is the best and most practical for extreme weather cold conditions. I specially like the elastic ankles, and simple design with no addtional fluffs.

It is considerably light for its warmth and fill weight, also heavy duty full side zipper works very well.

Velcro on the suspender should be little longer to accomondate short torso.

Overall, this is one of the very best insulating gear.

I find Marmot gears to be conservative in design but most practically in application.

Your review would be more powerful/convincing if you told a story of where you've actually used these. Right now it sounds like a generic marketing review that provides no evidence you've worn them outside of the dressing room.

would these work for women too?

Responded on

They could be used by women, although the sizing and the fit could be off. One factor to keep in mind will be the length, as men's clothing can be longer cut than women's.

How tough is the shell material?

How tough is the shell material?

Responded on

It's tough enough that you can glassade down a slope without feathers exploding out the butt, but you'll definitely want gaiters. I sliced open the thigh on mine with my crampons, and luckily I had my sewing kit with me.

I recently wore these on a trip to Hoth.

I bought these pants for a recent recreational trip to Hoth.I'd heard that the temp there routinely dips down to around -700 degrees at night, and I wanted to make sure I wouldn't have to sleep in a Tauntaun.Needless to say, they were exceptional.Super warm, super comfy, and actually incredibly durable. Over the two weeks we spent there, I think I only took them off once. And that was to pee.So if you're considering getting these pants, I highly recommend them.Seriously.

Responded on

I wish I had these when I went to Hoth. I had to sleep in a tauntaun and they are warm, but they only last about one night before they go cold and get rigid. My friend tried to get a second night out of one and I had to cut him out of it in the morning because it got so rigid.

And I thought they smelled bad... on the outside!

Beyond Warm

I tested these in my works walk in freezer where the temp is -4F and I was super hot even doing little or no work. They are so full of high quality down and are reinforced with thicker material around the knees and but. The overalls were a bit big so I had them altered with extra Velcro higher up so they fit on my waist better. I sized up to a large so they could easily be placed over my shells for Mountaineering. Can't wait to try these out in some serious cold weather. Not only did they come with a stuff sack but also a storage sack. Nice work Marmot! Perhaps on the 2010 model they will have more options to tighten the waist a little more to keep the warm air in.

A year later (3/29/2011) I called Marmot and asked for the down fill weight of their 8000M Collection, this is what I was told:

8000m Pant - 296grams / 10.44 oz
8000m Parka - 504grams / 17.77 oz
8000m Suit - 692grams / 24.4oz

Write your question here...I am considering buying one of these to sleep in instead of carrying a sleeping bag and warm clothing, I hunt and is looking at ways to reduce wieght but be comfortable these could maybe do for those cold nights together with a down jacket will have to buy slightly large to ensure my feet is coverd I think

You would save more weight by just using a sleeping bag, man. These don't pack down any smaller than what a 10-15 degree down bag would pack down to. If you were going to use these and a down jacket together, you'd probably be looking at around 4+ lbs. of weight and all kinds of bulk. If you brought along a 15 degree down bag, you'd be looking at a sleek 2.5 lbs.

There are sleeping bag suits that you can wear made by a British company. Here's a link to their website.

These pants are superb

These pants are just superb. Although I hav;nt tried them in higher altitudes, they kept me warm and nice in the cold of Finland for nearly a day without too much physical exercise. Easy to get on and off. I can;t wait to get the parka of the same brand.

what is the shipping weight?

Will make you feel like you're the Michelin Man

Super puffy pants. Because they are so thick and puffy, it would be a good idea to order a size larger. I typically wear S but after reading a few reviews, I ordered M and it fits me just right. The leg inseam section is bit short. Another reason why it is a good idea to order a size up. I tested these pants when I was in Summit, Greenland. They were warmer than my -40F rated sleeping bag. I just slept in these pants! If you are wearing a thick sweater on top, then the suspender will not feel loose or too big (only the case if you ordered a size up).

Almost ridiculously thick. But they are the warmest

These pants are so thick one can hardly move in them. And they need a waist adjustment possibility.

Otherwise, they are the warmest out there and the suspenders are really wide, well designed and comfortable.

Another inch in the inseam would be welcome. But for the absolute extremes of cold, these are it. And they even have a pocket. Just be careful trying to run in them. (-:

These were returned! Sorry!

Very warm, I suppose. But clunky.

A draw string waist would have made the difference, since there is only one other pants this warm: the Mt. Hardware Absolute Zero pants, also without a draw string, though the description says it has it. Both went back: Why have all that warmth, if the waist is loose and lets it out???

And the suspenders should be wider and padded, or something, to make them more comfortable. Though the insulation is lightweight down, there is so much of it that the pants weighed heavily on my rather thin shoulders, and annoyed me immensely. They are also stiff-feeling because they are so stuffed so full.

A redesign, making these pants more comfortable and with adjustable waist, would make it a winner......though I could do without the wild coloring.

sizing

I bought these for my son who is standing at the base camp of Aconcagua as I write this, so a performance review will follow. The sizing was a little off. Al is 6' 1/2" and 175. We ordered the large, as it fit his measurements. When he tried them on, they were really too short through the crotch. Had to make due because of timing, but XL would have been better.
