Great pants but...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought these pants cpl mos. ago and have used it a few times while riding my 4 wheeler to work in -20F. Over a pair of sweatpants, the Flury pants performed flawlessly with the -50 windchill. My legs were warm and didn't feel any wind or cold on my legs. The side zips are convenient when putting my big and heavy winter boots on. I'm 5-3 115 and the sm fits perfect over a lt wt base layer and a pair of sweatpants and the reg lenght is perfect while wearing my winter boots.
Now for the 3 stars. As you noticed as I did, the description CLEARLY states: pockets: 2 front, 2 rear. Well guess what. There are NO pockets at all.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Spectacular -- though I've only worn them for two days, I can see that they will be a great add to my collection. I came back to buy another pair (these replaced my old PreCip lined version -- why Marmot doesn't make them any longer is beyond me) and I"m wishing I'd found these pants earlier. From staying warm in the show in midtown NYC to photography in the back country, these pants will do the trick.

Can i stand in the rain all day and stay dry?
These are softshell with a DWR finish, which makes them water resistant, not waterproof. So, I wouldn't recommend standing in the rain all day.
The Marmot Flurry Insulated Pant is a great choice when looking for a little more insulation. They are extremely comfortable and unbelievable breathable. The full side zips are very convenient and second as vents. they pack very small. Bottom line: best insulated pant!

Does anyone know the fill weight of the Flurry pants? I am comparing them to the MH Compressor PL. The MH is 120 grams of Primaloft. I am very familiar with Primaloft. It is great. The Flurry is Marmot's proprietary version of Primaloft called Thermal R. I wonder how Thermal R compares to Primaloft for warmth? I prefer the fit, the snap and zip fly, extra reinforcement and suspenders of the Flurry. They compress as well as the MH and only weigh 4 ounces more. I just want to be sure they are as warm. I know they will be plenty warm for active pursuits such as hiking and XC skiing, but the main reason for buying them is for warmth when I am sitting around camp on a three week winter Grand Canyon trip. If they weren't so expensive I would have ordered Feathered Friend's Helios pants. Used them on Acancaugua and they are amazing. The Flurry and Compressor are my alternative to that. So the questions are: how much fill weight and is Thermal R as warm as Primaloft?
The Flurry pants have an 80 g Thermal R Eco insulation. Thermal R Eco has a slightly higher CLO Rating than Primaloft sport, meaning it's has a slightly higher warmth to weight ratio. It's also proven to be very durable. So yes, Thermal R Eco will work very similarly to Primaloft sport. Hope that helps and have fun in the Grand Canyon.
