East Coast tele skier who spends a ton of time both resort and BC. After wearing out a pair of Mountain Hardwear 3L GTex pants that I had for 5 seasons, and trashing a pair of Patgonias over the next 2, I assumed I would end up with a pair of GoreTex pro shell pants. I have a Marmot shell that is bombproof and looked at the Marmot line. The Edge pant stuck out, so I took a shot.
After several days out this season, these are my new favorite! Great Marmot quality (as always)! Great fit, super comfortable, nice length. They let you move but aren't baggy like a park-rat's low riders. I like the high waist and suspenders without the restriction of a bib. I'm 5'11", 170#, 33 inseam and the large fits perfectly.
These are definitely tough pants. Material seems like it will hold up for years, even the cuff, which is a weak spot on a lot of pants I've owned. Not superlight alpine climbing pants, but that's not what they're for. They are warm but not insulated so will definitely work some spring.
In a nutshell: way better than I expected. Look great, tough, comfortable and fit awesome. Perfect hardcore ski pant. Another winner from Marmot and Backcountry.
