Great pant

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 6' 3"
    Weight: 210 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

I recently purchased the Mantra Pant on sale from Backcountry and have been very pleased with the performance of the pant. As previously mentioned, the pant runs long. I'm 6'3" 210lbs with a 36 inch waist and 34 inseam and the large fits perfectly.

This weekends temps were in the mid twenties and I found the pant kept me warm when I was only wearing a base layer which consisted of a pair of Under Armour pants.

Overall very pleased with the purchase.

They are huuuuge. 6'5" 225, 33" inseam 37" waist and the inseam on the XL has got to be 36" and the waist is a large 40. Great looking so ill return for the large.

Runs Long for Medium

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

I'm 5-10 but thick (34" waist). Pants run really long - I have to pull up the legs to stay out of the bindings and they bunch up around the bindings - so much so I caught a binding brake on a turn and biffed. Seems like you need to be a tall-legged medium.

Solid pant

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

Runs just slightly large - 6'2", 215 lbs, normally XL in everything (36 waist), the L fits right. A little looser than a traditional slim ski pant. Worn in mostly winter conditions with snowy conditions, stayed dry and warm with a medium weight base layer in 15 degree weather.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

I took these out skiing, and after the very first day there are small tears/cuts all over the 'reinforced' area at the bottom of the legs. That said, the skis were newly sharpened and I'm not sure if other pants would have fared better. This is only the 2nd pair of ski pants I've owned, so I don't have much to compare against.

do you have the marmot mantra pant or any other good brand for that matter in a men's white large/long. Thank you

Is there any fundamental reason why this...

Is there any fundamental reason why this is $80 more than the Motion pants? The waterproofing seems identical and the only things I can pick out are the ankle zipper and pocket placement.

These also have Cordura abrasion patches, water resistant zippers, internal zippered vents, and are made out of a slightly less burly fabric then the motion pant (6.8 oz/yd for the motion vs 5.4 oz/yd for the mantra). Oh and they weigh 8oz more, somehow.

So yeah, I don't own either of these pants, but on paper it doesn't look like there are many good reasons to pay that extra $80 bucks.

Satisfied with this pant

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

I wear 33x34 pants and jeans but usually a loose fit due to thick thighs, and ordered the medium mantra. fits perfect around the waist and length is right on with ski boots. The white color is actually a pure white which I was looking for. Construction seems durable using it once so far. While the fit may be looser, I by no means look silly.

I like this pant.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

Keeps the snow and wet out, and I look awesome. Plenty of pocket space to hold all my snacks and dermatone. I'm a 34"x34" pant and the the Medium is long enough for me. One of the zipper toggles on the boot zip has come undone, but so far everything else has held up after a year of abuse. They are a bit baggy like others have said. Definitely not an alpine fit.

Might run a little large

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.

Agree on this. I am 6'2" 205 , 34 inch waist and mega thighs (teleskiier} and these pants are somewhat baggy. Great pants as you would expect from Marmot but if a trim fit is desired order down one size. They have adjustment tabs on the waist Bend the knee!

Agree as well. I'm 6' and 160lbs, would normally wear 32x32 pants or M. I ordered M first, was way too large and long (not 32 for sure), very baggy, too long. I returned them and got an S, which was sadly too small - the difference in waist was certainly more than 2 sizes. Length on S was closer to 32.

Very Good Pant

  • 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 found the Small to be too large for me.

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?

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.

Burly Pants

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.
