Begin your powder quest in the Marmot Spire Pant.

When the days of winter are spent in an endless quest for fresh tracks through waist-deep fluff, the Marmot Men’s Spire Pant is an obvious clothing choice. Made with three-layer, waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Performance Shell fabric, the Spire provides a guaranteed barrier against moisture, no matter what form it takes. Full-length side zips dump excess heat and make for quick on-and-off, while the adjustable suspenders keep the pants where you want them.

Im 5'11", 270 lbs. Ive been skiing 30 of the 33 years old I am. I ski hard and aggressive despite my size. I am generally muscular stocky build but am carrying an extra 50lbs due to life as a chef. Would the fit a 42" waist and 30" inseam?

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

I have purchased a couple pairs of these pants for my son. He is an alpine ski racer so needs the full length zipper. I was a bit worried on the durability at first, but these hold up well. With 80+ days of skiing per season and much of that time spent bashing into race gates these pants have been proven to stand up to some serious abuse! Great fit, very waterproof/weatherproof.

Great pant for skiing

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

I use this as my every day alpine pant, runs a bit big im 6'3" 215lbs and the Large fits great with plenty of room for movement. I cross the suspenders, wearing them normal they do not stay on your shoulder very well Other than that they stop all wind and are dray with the taped full let zipper.

Great Gore-Tex Pant

  • Fit: True to size

This is typical Marmot quality. I have a lot of Marmot stuff because it is high quality and they stand behind the product. I originally bought the large after reading reviews. I am 5'9", 34 waist, 30 inseam. The pants were huge, almost laughable. I returned them and got the mediums, and they fit me in all the right places. This is a shell pant, meaning no insulation. I bought Smartwool Merino 250 as a baselayer.

i will be skiing with these in the next week and will post an addendum to this review after I use the pants.

Great shell pants for skiing

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've worn these about 10 times and love them. Great fit that allows layering for comfort from 6 to 32 F so far. Love the full side zips and pocket placement. Prefer the belt to suspenders as the suspenders slip off my shoulders. Absolutely water tight! I'd recommend these highly

Responded on

I use a small 2" shock cord with small hooks in the front at the adjustment slides that hold the suspenders very nicely. A small line would do the trick as well. Love these pants!

Weird Fit

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Never even wore these out of the house. I am 6'2, 190 lbs and the L was so uncomfortable because of the short inseam (in other words, went up my crack) and the XL was big enough for someone weighing 250. Oh yeah, the L had a hole in the pocket too. Not impressed.

Great fit for skiing while not being overly large or baggy, watertight pocket zips, a back pocket, suspenders, full side zips...basically everything you need without being over featured. One small complaint that is quickly remedied with some 2 or 3mm cordelette is that the zippers are very hard to grab with gloves on as they are tiny. I added some cord and now they are great!

Finally, I would add that they keep me dry, are way better than the MH Hestia pants for dryness and the mediums fit me well at 6'1-2" , 175 lbs, tall and slim/athletic. Waist is a little large but the pants have suspenders and accept a belt. Great purchase!

Excellent Bib/Pant

Replacing my worn out Arc'teryx Alpha LT 1/2 Bib Pant.
Nice fabric, soft to the touch, and does the job. I'm short and stocky 5'7 190lbs and got the XL. Good fit but a little long as usual for me. Slightly baggy but not too much. This would be the perfect skiing pant for me if they came in a short. Not suited for ice climbing. Yellow is sweeeet

Marmot's sizing chart says a Large should fit you spot on.

I'm 5'10 175 with a 31-32' waist, and I wear a medium in almost everything, but tried the medium on in a store recently and it was pretty big that I was afraid they'd slide off my butt while skiing, and so big that I think a small might fight better, but I never wear a small in anything....thoughts?

Solid Ski Pants

Really nice pants. Well suited for resort skiing and the full zip lets you vent as much as you want for backcountry skinning. My only complaint is that the fabric is not particularly hard-wearing, I have visible scuffs and a few small tears in the outer fabric on the seat and other areas from minor falls and such. Definitely not something I'd wear mountaineering but comfortable and stylish for skiing.

Sizing: 6'1", 32/34, 180#, size medium fits perfectly.

Is the fit of this pant more toward a ski pant (baggy) or more of a alpine pant shell for winter climbing?

I am looking for a pant that will be suited for climbing in the north cascades in winter will this suite my needs?

Responded on

They will fit more like ski pants than tight climbing pants but you shouldnt have much problem climbing in them if you size right and dont get something too big

Spot on

I bought these pants for snowboarding, which I do mostly in the backcountry. The XL fits me as well as I could expect- I'm about 220 and 5'10" with a waist of ~39", so quite stocky and while the pants are a little long, my size always forces a compromise in that area. If you're more normal in proportion, I would expect little issue with length. So that's the only vaguely negative thing I have to write, otherwise, the fabric is great in waterproofness and breathability as you would expect. A pleasant surprise was how much more packable they are than I anticipated, considering the fabric is goretex performance shell. I was originally considering the Marmot Randonee pants, but ultimately was put off by the proshell fabric only being 2 layer, which lead me to expect some durability issues. Plus the Randonee pants actually weigh more than the Spire. The pockets are well placed and functional, as are the suspenders, which easily zip off if you don't like them. The pants do fit fine over soft snowboard boots, but as the first reviewer states, these would be too big for mountaineering boots. By the same token, the fit at the cuff isn't as big as you'd see on snowboard specific pants from, say, Burton. Overall, the fit as mentioned above, together the with full side zips allow for excellent modulation of coverage during a day in the backcountry: It's easy to open a vent as large as you desire, and also take the pants off altogether without taking skis or board halves off while skinning up. I definitely recommend these.

These would work fine for skiing. As for the insulated or not, that is personal preference and if you get warm easily it is best to go with non-insulated and layer IMO.

Caleb, these are made with a 3 layer Gore-Tex Performance hard shell. I suppose this could work in extremely cold climes, but in my mind not the intended use. I could see myself easily overheating with all but the slowest paces in - 15 degree temps. You could vent with the side zips, but I think you would be better off with a wind proof soft shell for such a highly aerobic sport. For most of my winter XC tours and runs I wear a simple tight like Under Armour cold gear or a power stretch. Not for everybody. But, like all things you can make it work if you want to. Good luck!

Hi Bill, I'm 6'1" 185, 32/32 or 34 and I just picked up a pair of mediums that fit perfectly. I tried on the large and felt they were pretty baggy around the waist. Hope this helps.

They do have removable suspenders but wear better with them on. I tried it both ways and the suspenders do help! They are a little long even though I got "short".
