Get your legs into the Marmot Blackcomb Softshell Pants, and start your early morning trek to find deep, fresh powder. These softshell pants use breathable Marmot M3 tech so even when you're working up a serious sweat post-holing to the top, you won't feel like you're in a sauna. And, thanks to their ability to block wind and moisture, you'll feel warm and dry on your way down.

  • Marmot M3 softshell fabric blocks wind and repels moisture while remaining highly breathable
  • Reinforcement patches at knees and cuffs protect high-wear areas
  • Athletic fit means there isn't a bunch of extra fabric to get in your way
  • Articulated knees are preset for skiing
  • Internal gaiters with gripper elastic keep the snow from flying up your pants or sneaking into your boots
  • Ankle zips make these pants easier to get over your boots

Good choice

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

Purchased these to replace an old pair of original Cloudveil schoeler softshell pants. Good for all purpose use. I think they could use a little more help in the windproofing. Also, marmot seems to have an issue with the sizing, everything seems to run on the small size. I wear 32" waist in everything, the 32" in these actually fits like a 31". The next size up is too big and way too long. Still a solid product.


Love the softshell fabric

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

these pants are fantastic. Love the softshell, stretch material. I'm 5'10", 170 lbs and the 34 fit just about perfect. The leg length is a bit long but work ok with alpine boots. As mentioned, the gater could be a little more sophisticated - there's no elastic and fit ok over alpine boots but wouldn't work at all on anything with less circumference. They are extremely comfortable, don't bind or restrict movement, yet are athletic in their fit. Work well with no base layer for warmer conditions and with a base layer are great on colder days too. Looking forward to many days skiing in these.


Ice climbing pants

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I've been using these for ice climbing the past two years. They are working pretty well. Stretchy, water resistant, and warm enough to about 0F if you keep moving. (no wind). I've put a hole through the leg cuff area with my crampons. Without the reinforced area, I would probably have more holes.

It's a good pants and I would recommend it. I normally wear 30/30 (waist/inseam) and these worked well.

Hi. How does this softshell compare to the OR Cirque in terms of water resistance and breathability?


Comfortable. Functional

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

I've used these for resort skiing and they were great. Really comfortable and they look good. The snow gaiter is actually fine with downhill ski boots, but I can see that it would be perhaps not so great for other applications.



    Took it out to Long's peak for some alpine climb this past weekend. Comfortable and warm! Love them, will definitely buy again.


    Great Pants

      Love the fit, super comfortable, and the quality of the fabric is excellent! However, I agree with the other comments about the sightly non/dis-functional gaiters. Is there something about these gaiters that I'm not understanding?

      I would love to get some clarification about these darm gaiters. I assume that they're designed for wide snow boots.



        I bought for nordic and light backcountry skiing in Colorado. They fit athletic, but are as comfortable as my favorite jeans and I could work in them or wear them all-day. They shed water, are breathable, and on colder days I wear a base layer underneath. I do require a nylon web belt with mine. The built-in gaiter doesnt have any clips and are a bit large (for tele or nordic boots). The reinforced knees are perfect, especially nice with telekenis knee-pads. These pants will be my Spring alpine ski pants as well. Nice job Marmot!


        Blackcomb pant

          Just received these, to augment my Marmot Durango pant (several years old). Blackcomb is thinner, and probably more windproof. The internal gaiter was non-functional. It had gripper elastic, but there was no elastic to it, so it would not hold tight to the boot. The 32 is slimmer cut than the Med Durango, which is pretty loose. I sent them back due to the lighter fabric (don't want to wear longjohns under them--not needed with the Durango) and the disfunctional internal gaiter.

          Durangos are/were great all around winter pants. I guess if they had been selling well enough they would still be making them. sounds like I had better take care of mine...

          Marmot Video Review

          Curly's Clips - Marmot review of the pants.

          This video is meaningless. He doesn't demonstrate any features of the pants or exand on anything technical. He could be wearing jeans for all of the information he provides about the pants.

          In general I agree, it could be far more informative. Some people don't even know what softshell means though ... it's a general overview. Not perfect, but a step in the right direction at least, in my opinion. What exact information would you like to see that would have helped this video be helpful for you?

          Sorry, I should be more specific with my questions. I wanted to know if they are lined at all, or what the next-to-skin feeling would be for hot days when you're not wearing a base layer. And how breathable vs. water resistant they are. I'm looking at them for back country skiing or light ski mountaineering and wanted to gather more info. Finally, I really appreciate it when reviewers state their size so other people can get a better idea of how they fit. For example, I'm 5'9" and 200 lbs.

          I totally agree, all good points that would have improved the video.

          I really think product video reviews are relatively young, they haven't been around for decades. A lot of companies are still figuring out how to do them well. Thanks for the feedback, all helpful and I'll keep in mind when planning future reviews for our brand.

          These pants are unbelievable. I have been climbing some really wet WI3/WI4 ice in them that I thought I was going to get absolutely drenched in but I came out completely dry. The fabric on the knee and heel has saved me from more than a few crampon rips. These pants also have a really nice snow skirt.

          I'm looking at getting some of these, your review is helpful. Are the pants lined at all? How do they feel against bare skin?

          the pants aren't lined but nothing a baselayer can't solve. They feel good against bare skin. I use these pants to commute to work on my bike in the winter and they keep my legs very toasty/insulated.

          If a usually wear 31", should I buy a 30" or a 32" do they run large or small, or true? I like slim fit, don�t like loose clothes, so what do you suggest?

          I think they fit true to size. Be warned--they are by no means slim cut as they are designed for alpine skiing also so they have some extra to get over boots (also why I purchased these). I also have a pair of outdoor research cirque pants which are much more slim fit. I would check them out. They run true and have have less fabric in the leg/ankle area.

          i live in CA and we are coming into summer, will this pants be to hot for me to work in, i am a certified arborist and tend to get some sweat out throughout the day, thanks
