    The pinnacle of powder protection.

    You have powder-specific boards, but what about your pants? The Marmot Women's Spire Pant was made for ripping through deep stuff; its Gore-Tex 2L shell offers full waterproof protection from deep snow, but also allows water vapor to escape which is key—you're likely to be working up a sweat skinning to those fresh lines and even on the way down, too.

    • Three-layer construction with a Gore-Tex 2L waterproof breathable membrane ensures you stay dry and comfortable, no matter what the weather's doing
    • Full seam taping and water-resistant zippers prevents leaks in vulnerable spots
    • Articulated knees reduce excess fabric and improve mobility
    • Full side zips make for easy on-off, even over boots, and allow for ventilation
    • Removable suspenders offer a comfortable fit and a little extra protection from snow in the back
    • Internal gaiter keeps the snow out of your boots
    • Reinforcement patches at instep help prevent damage from ski edges and crampons
    • Item #MAR2373

    Really great but...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I bought these pants to use in the backcountry and they worked great. I did get a bit of wedgie when fully loaded and skinning up Mt. Shasta. It was really nice to unzip the sides when it warmed up, but I had to re-velcro a couple of times. The real bummer was that on my first use my ski sliced a 1-inch gash on the left leg when I slid and fell on an especially steep part of the mountain. I ordered a medium and the length was perfect, but at 5'6" and 145lbs I probably should've ordered a large, as they were a little snug in my hips and thighs.

    Too tight in the legs

    • Size Bought: XS

    Gorgeous color, and I really wanted to love these, but they were restrictive on my legs, as others have mentioned. I could only wear them with the zippers unzipped, though they were a great length and fit well in the waist! I also had to loosen the straps a lot to avoid "the wedgie"; and the Norrona bibs are just so much better-designed for all of that. So I bought those.

    One pair of pants to out dry them all!

    So I got the Spires in Green Garnet in Medium for my birthday this year. Prior getting them, I was already planning to buy them myself since it was on sale and I needed a pair of super waterproof pants (and my 15k Ride pants had duct tape on them). I read reviews and was a tad bit hesitant to follow through with the purchase due to folks having wedgies, but... after wearing this for a good 4-6 snow days already - I absolutely LOVE them. Yes, I get minor wedgies but a little adjustment of the suspender should fix it. The pants fit well, are not too long, and are super super nice. I definitely recommend these. I've gotten compliments and inquiries from older generation skiiers about the pants and I always say they are worth every penny.

    For reference, I am 5'3", 130 lbs, semi-athletic build (I drink a lot of beer), and wear size 26 in Levi's. :)

    Good 1st shell pant

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    It's hard for me to find pants that fit my waist and legs but are the right length. These ones almost fit the bill, still a little long in the leg but with ski boots on are just about right.

    My only complaint is that the connecting zipper from the bib to the pant is pretty difficult to put back together after dropping the seat. It's really tiny and hard to zip back up with cold hands! Other than that, they are a great pant! I've stayed dry and warm in all sorts of conditions this season.

    A little tight!

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    These pants are awesome. A word to the wise- those of us with "skiers legs" should order a size up. I used their measurements guide to determine my size. They fit fine in the waist but they were so tight on my legs that I can't imagine trying to ski in them all day. Otherwise they were great and I can't wait until I get a size that fits better.

    So happy with these!

    I was torn between buying a pair of Patagonia Powslayers and the Spire for a few weeks, and it was really tough choosing between the two, but I love, love the Spire so far! For the price, I really haven't found a huge difference between them and the Powslayers. I haven't tested the durability much yet but I'm impressed with how solid the fabric feels, and the Green Garnet color is even more vivid than in the pictures. For me, the Spire has a much more tailored fit than the Powslayer did, especially through the waist and butt. They also run on the shorter side, which works really well for me but may not for taller girls. I understand where some of the other reviewers were coming from in regards to the "weird" fit through the butt/hips, but I found when I loosened the straps enough, I had plenty of room to move around, sidestep, hike, etc. in these. I think it's probably something that depends pretty heavily on how you like your pants to fit --these will be on the slimmer, but not tight, side--and your body shape. If you want something baggier, the Powslayer is probably a better choice, or you could just size up in these. I've already taken advantage of the full-zip sides during a warm weekend, and I've found the pants to be pretty breathable and light, but not flimsy. I've only skied resorts in them, so I can't speak to their performance in the backcountry, but I'd imagine they'd do well. Looking forward to using these for the next few seasons!

    Too long for my stubby lil legs

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I'm 5'6, and I guess I have short legs compared to the rest of my body. I don't usually have an issue when I buy pants... but with some brands I buy ankle length or the "short" type and those fit better. I've never had this issue buying ski pants before, but when I put these on they're like 4-5 inches too long for me. I'm sad to return them because I love the color and they fit well and look good everywhere else.

    Love these!

    This was ordered as a gift for my friend and here is what she had to say about these bad boys:
    "LOVE the feel of these pants! Being 5’8”, 150lbs and preferring my ski pants to be on the looser side, I went with the L and the fit is perfect. Just the right fit around my waist and legs, with awesome, breathable material and plenty of room to layer for really cold days. The bib component let’s me focus more on shredding and less on my pants falling down, plus the butt flap makes long days out in the back country a breeze for when nature calls. "

    Weird fit through seat

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: large

    Wanted to replace my old gore tex shell pants, unfortunately these have a strange fit through the butt. Mail ordered these, tried them on, well made, good quality, but when you try to move around in these pants (like high stepping, doing lunges-long steps forward), they are way too snug across the butt area. Even in the photos of the pants, I should have paid attention to how the material hikes up the backside of the models...that's maybe why they are on sale. too bad, quality ingredients, poor execution.

    My favorite touring pants!

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

    The Marmot Spire has been my go-to since they came out - so much so that I now have them in orange, yellow, green and crimson. It's totally normal to buy what you like in all the available colors right?



    The material and weight of these pants is perfect for layering up for a cold day on the skin track or keeping the layers light in the spring. Plus the full zip pants means that I can quickly change my layering system on the skin track. If you're looking for a well-made, Gore-tex pant I highly recommend the Marmot Spire!

    Hips but not butt

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I was super excited about these until I tried them on. I don't have hips so they poofed out a little bit around there, to be expected, but I was surprised when they were so tight around the butt. Sad day for me because the design and materials were so nice, just didn't fit right.

    Almost heaven

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

    These pants are a great fit except for 2 things. The inseam is a little too short for me, (I am 5'8" and purchased a medium), and the left sided suspender constantly is falling off my shoulder if I wear them. Other than that, these are comfy, do not require a belt to hold them up, and keep you dry.

    Great pants!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used these 20+ days so far. They're great; totally waterproof, the small is really well sized, the bib works great (and is easy to unzip when you have to go to the bathroom), and the yellow is excellent.

    update! Better than I imagined!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    So, it has snowed here in Utah- and these are the only pants I've worn so far. Day #1= 54 inches in the backcountry. These were great pants to tour in- with this type of day, the hardshell was necessary but the ventings helped a ton on the ascent. With this much snow at a low angle, i was deep in powder- the bib kept everything out of going down my pants, and the adjustable gaitor was snug against my boot and I cannot believe how no snow creeped in anywhere.

    Day #2= 15 inches of very wet snow in rainy/sleety conditions. Again, this pant surpassed my expectations. This was the wettest day I can remember in a long time and the pants kept me dry and happy all day- which has proven to be a tough thing! The water never soaked thru my past and I was out for a good 5 hours. Amazing!

    Marmot Women's Pants

      I see a lot of product come through on photoshoots and usually I just check it out and move on to the next piece. I actually didn't want to take these off. I can't tell you how these perform but I can tell you all about how they fit. The bib is adjustable and doesn't look bulky under a jacket. The length is perfect and these pants run true to size. The color is incredible. Overall I never get obsessive over a pair of pants but marmot made an incredible product here and you should buy it. If there were 6 stars, I would have given these pants that.

      Please snow!!!

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

      These look so pretty in my closet. And feel so good walking around in my living room. Now just to test them out. Fit is killer (true to size) and the colors are amazing- super bright and fun. The suspenders- come on. Doesn't get much better than this. I'll be back with a performance review once I can get out on the hill with them.

      Hi, what are the actual measurements (not the sizing) of the pants: waist, hips, lenghts? I wear Marmot Pro-Tour pants size medium, shall these medium do ok?

      The Womens Spire Pants: Size XS says size...

      The Womens Spire Pants: Size XS says size 4-6 and you are out of the S size. My question is I wear a Size 6 and have a new pair of Patagonia Snow Bell pants in a size S and they fit perfectly. Is the XS really a true 4?

      Best Answer

      Hi there, I just received these pants as a gift in a size small. I normally wear a size 4... I am about 5'5" and 135lbs and these are very roomy. I suspect the XS will fit you fine as long as you don't mind a more snug fit vs. a baggy fit.

      I'm 5'6" and my weight fluctuates between 109-115. I ordered the XS which were too snug around the thigh if I were to take a high step, so I ordered a small thinking that would help. While the stepping room improved the thigh was super roomy (Think Mountie) and the waist a little larger than I'd like (they'd fall down without the suspenders or a belt).
