Great fit, doesn't stretch out and is long enough to pull over the face on cold days.

I don't use this a ton as I run pretty warm but the few times I have it works prefectly as designed. Keeps the neck warm and functions great as a face warmer on the lift/in the cold wind.

Much better than a balaclava on all but the most arctic of days.

I have used Patagonia Capilene for more than 10 years and this piece did not dissapoint. Right weight, prfect fit and I really like the colors they're doing now.

I run very warm and use this piece solo under my shell unless it's below 20 degrees. If you run average or cold, a fleece layer will be absolutely necessary.

The Cap 3 layer is also perfect around the house/yard on cool fall days.

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.
