These pants are great. They fit well with my under layer tights. They are durable and you can tell from the quality that these are made to last. I never expect anything less from Marmot.
This makes like the 20th piece of gear I have made by them. Love their gear, and these pants are no different!
Marmot Nailed it with these pants!
I was looking for a wilderness canoe tripping pant. Not really for backpacking or climbing, but for extended backcountry canoe trips. That meant they have to be tough for long portages and comfortable and wind and water resistant. After a couple weeks with these, I can say the materials chosen by Marmot are fantastic. In addition to the great fabric and features, I love the pocket layout. The zip pockets at the front of the leg up high as perfect for canoeing. When you are kneeling, you still can get to something in your pocket. I also like the hand pockets in that they are more horizontal than vertical in some softshell pants. I think this makes them much more functional - I ALWAYS have a spyderco pocket knife in my front pocket clipped on the edge, and this pocket allows that. A lot of softshells do not. The other half of the equation is FIT. I'm picky, not too baggy, not too tight. Have tried many options and these hit the sweet spot for me. They are not too tight (I have pretty thin legs) and allow plenty of movement. On the other hand, they are not too baggy that they are annoying or catch wind. The only improvement I might suggest would be to taper the bottom of the leg a little more, they are pretty much a straight cut, but this might help if you want to wear then over very bulky plastics or ski boots. Overall, the best pants I have tried yet!!!

Are these gusseted? I have a pair of the old old model precip's and they have a bit of a gusset. I ride mtb in pants all the time and I need a gusset! Tell me these are as rad as I hope they are...
Gusset where on the pant are you wondering?
Where else would there be a gusset? The crotch. It's a design that adds movement in pants for sports. I think it's kind of essential in biking and climbing.
I wish I knew, too. I much prefer a gusseted crotch. I checked out Marmot's website. No dice there. I'm guessing they probably don't as a gusset is often mentioned if it is present.
