I am 5'11'', 185lbs, I normally wear 34 x 32 jeans or slacks, and a size Large in this pair of pants was HUGE on me. They looked like great pants, but if your the same size that I am, you should probably order a Medium, or possibly even a Small.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I like this pant. I ordered the pant slightly to large, but I intend to grow into these a bit more and I just use a ski belt for now. The waterproofing is ridiculous how good it is, and the felt on the bottom spot is a nice addition. These are actually kind of warm, but if you constantly have cold legs I would use real undergarments(I'm a jeans skier :P). Also, the spot on the bottom of the boot to reduce ski slicing works great. It has so many pockets, you actually wouldn't need a backpack for smaller things. The adjustable boot gaiters are neat too.
hi im 6'0" 220lbs , 36" waist.
i have a baseballers butt ,so i usually buy 38" (XL)pants to allow for the larger seat.
BUT........even the XL's ,while being very loose in the waist, are often tight and restrictive in the crotch and thighs.
The best fitting pants for my shape seems to be The North Face FREEDOM PANTS in XL.
Any help finding free-fitting pants would be appreciated.
Burton sig fit was no good.
North Face CARGO FARGO (park fit) sz LARGE , did fit but was ridiculously baggy from the thighs down.
Which brands should are known to make pants with a large seat.
Is the Marmot Mantra a likely fit for me.
I am 6'1" tall and my weight is about 230 lbs. Will the XL be fine for me ? Thanks. Veno.
If your waist is @ 37-39" which Marmot lists for an XL. Good Luck.
I would like to know if this pant will keep me warm in coldest situations (about 0 degrees celsius or 32 degrees farenheit?
These pants won't keep you warm at all. They are shell only. You'll need an insulating layer underneath for warmth.
I just took off a pair of Mantras (size Small). I'm 5'8" 140 and wear a 30" waist in Levis, 31" length. These were loose on my waist (the adjustment tabs fixed this), and an inch or two too long. I'm planning on returning them, because they are too long for me. I found the Mantra to be really well made, with better (all zippered) and more pockets than The North Face Freedom pants, and a more articulated knee. There is some fleece over your butt, which will be much appreciated on the lift, and no insulation elsewhere. The 2 layers of fabric feel substantial though, and I don't think you'll get chilly in these very easily.
A couple more nit-picks in case the Marmot designers are listening: the gaiters are too small, and I don't real need back pockets when I've got 3 front pockets. The gaiters have 2 snaps and a section of velcro adding complexity to what I think would work better if it was just a simple tube with an elastic opening. These gaiters are tough to stretch over your boot.
There's not much I want to put in a rear pocket and then sit on during the lift.
Is this available in short, med,, and long sizes? I am 5'8", 150 lbs, and right between S and M. Have a 30" inseam in Levis, but have worn short Patagonia pants in the past, and they were perfect.
The Mantra pant does not come in lengths. Given your measurements, I would suggest a size small.
I second the small. I wear a 32/32 pant and the mediums fit me with a couple of inches to spare in both length and waist. (internal waist adjust works well)
How much insulation is in these plants?
Hey there, no insulation in these... they are 2-layer, so they have a lining but no insulation...
FYI these do have a fleece/poly lining adds quite a bit more warmth that a straight-up shell. See review above.
whats the bifference beween these and the Tioga's??
do these have a softshell??
The Mantra Pant is a waterproof hard shell pant and is designed for resort skiing and riding. It is fully seam taped and will keep you dry in really wet conditions. The Tioga Pant is a softshell pant designed for backcountry skiing. It is very breathable but not waterproof. It is best for higher activity levels and milder weather.
I purchased the Matnras for a dual purpose backcountry/resort pant and they seem like they wil do a great job. These pants have a great construction with a heavy duty softshell-like (ie, soft hardshell) outer lined with fleece and polyester. The lining provides a little bit of insulation without making the pants too hot. The pants are very breatheable, but some extra (outer) thigh venting would expand the comfort range even more (also mesh lined vents would be nice). Tested them out looking for some October pow and ended up bushwhacking several miles and sliding down some icy rocks. They held up great and were comfortable the whole time in temps around freezing. I love the cut of the pants, a nice middle ground between tight techy pants and baggier stuff like Fly Low. I wear 32 waist pants and the Mediums fit me with some room to spare.
UPDATE: After a fair amount of touring in these I decided they are just too warm for that purpose due to the lining. Still bomber pants for inbounds and breathable enough for quick hikes, just not all day tours. More venting might have helped. Will probably return for Bombshell Bibs.
