    Solid Pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    These are the first pants I've bought from Marmot and I'm definitely not disappointed. They do run just a little bit large but not enough to make a huge difference. I ordered a 32, which is what I usually wear, and they still fit great. Light, breathable and stretchy. Great hiking or climbing pants.

    Good pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    First climbing-related pants I've bought. Great quality. Hardly (if at all) notice them while climbing. Very light and breathable. They do run slightly large. Depending on the pants, I'm either a 32 or a 33. Have a 32, no need for a belt and they don't slide down ever. Would recommend.

    Cool pants, but NOT slim fitting

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 32 regular
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    Bought these b/c several reviews said they are slimmer fitting pants. I'm 6'2", 160lbs. These are really baggy. I'll stick with the prana stretch zions (still the greatest pants ever).

    Very nice pants!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36W X 34 L

    My husband really liked these pants . The only reason he did not give it a five star is he wished it had more stretch to the material like some of the other hiking pants he have.

    Great pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 36 Short
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    I was very impressed with these pants. The Arch Rocks definitely run longer in length than most pants do so I had to size down from a large to a short. I've tested them out with bouldering and sport and they react well to the movements needed for both.

    Very nice pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36 Long
    • Height: 6'4"
    • Weight: 197lbs

    I'm not a climber, but I have a job that requires a fair amount of unrestricted movement, sometimes at a moment's notice. So...the size was on the money. 36 Long was a generous 36 waist and 34 inseam. The fit was slightly looser than I expected, but not "relaxed." Maybe the most crossover-casual of my climbing pants. The Urban Jungle color was fine. I was afraid it might be gaudy or unnatural but far from it. I've worn them in 80 degree temps and they were comfortable. It does get to be 95 here so I have my doubts about that. I'm giving them 4 out of 5 for relative lack of stretch. They are nowhere nearly as elastic as Zions, Quandrys or Ferrosis. The gusset, knee darts and fit still made up for the slight rigidity. If stretch is not crucial to you, these stack up with any of them. They were a good addition to the stable, and I would add another pair, especially if they added a stone, taupe or very light khaki. As it is, I'm all full up in blue, grey, green and tan. A solid purchase.

    Good Fit - A Little Warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36/reg
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 235lbs

    I'm shaped like a running back (minus the six pack and a few zeros on my bank account), so I was skeptical about the fit given the slim cut of the leg. Have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The stretch is minimal, but the articulation is excellent and I've had complete freedom of movement hiking and scrambling. I do wish there was a little more stretch in the waistband though. My biggest issue is that they are not quite as breathable as I'd like. I suppose that's because of the water resistance, which is excellent. But if it's above 80 with any amount of humidity, you're definitely in for a little extra sweat equity on your hike. The pockets are deep and the thigh pocket is very useful for holding my map. And I only use the rear pockets for a handkerchief and the occasional empty wrapper so the lack of closure hasn't been an issue for me.

    Not sure what these are for..

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 28
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    First issue, they fit like skinny jeans. if you want the cuff of your pants to go over a pair of shoes, do not buy these. Second, the back pockets have no closure (velcro, zipper, button etc) so these don't give a sense of security for wallets etc. Third the stretch is almost non-existent. I am a 30 and had to order a 28 to get the right fit in my bottom. Not recommended. Craghoppers are infinitely superior.

    Didn't fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I got these for my boyfriend for a climbing trip and he was really amped about how they looked like they would fit. He tries them o, though, once her gets them, and they are at least three sizes too big. He's usually a 32 and ordered a 32 and he could fit a whole other person in those pants with him. Huge. The fabric seems really nice, though, and the tapering in the knees is true to description.

    Pants - Shouldn't be Difficult. Fail.

    • Fit: True to size

    The good: fit is good, 36 short works for 36/30. They seem to have enough room for climbing. Other than that, basically a failure.
    Fabric: makes you feel hot and claustrophobic in a 75 degree room. A weird, clammy feeling. Maybe it's the extremely light fabric that clings to your skin. I have synthetic pants from Gramicci, Prana, and EMS. None of them are this awful. They're all 94- 97% Nylon and Spandex or some stretch fabric. Maybe it's just the light weight and lack of texture on the Marmot Arch pants that gives them the terrible feel. The fabric is extremely light yet feels hot, so there's no point to the light weight.

    Rear pockets are deep but loose and nothing secures the top so a wallet can easily fall out. Most makers address this with some sort of top closure. Is that so hard? Yes, let's rearrange our lives for these pants. Returned.

    Great for hiking and climbing

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I love these pants. I have two pairs. They're super lightweight and durable for backpacking, and flexible enough for climbing. And they're nicely cut as well.

    Fishy Pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    I picked up a pair of these pants to wear while wadding in an out of the river while Fly Fishing. Love em... They fit as expected, material dries fast and they keep the sun and bugs off my legs...

    Deep Pockets - Comfortable Hikers

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 34 Short
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Haven't had a chance to trail test them yet but all 5 pockets are deep enough to hold larger smartphones. Very comfortable but I found they run shorter than Marmot Scree's. I'm 5'10" and ordered 34/Short but exchanging for 34/Regular.

    Comfortable Durability

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    The first thing I loved about these pants is the fact that they are bona fide hiking pants that come in different inseam lengths. Being thin and tall (6'3") it can be hard to find pants with a long enough inseam.

    They also feature a lightweight and breathable fabric that is still quite durable. I've worn these several times on day hikes and backpacking trips in a wide range of temperatures and was never uncomfortable. Despite the lightness of the fabric they have yet to show any signs of wear.

    Marmot Arch Rock Pant -Mens

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

    Great pants, love the weight, comfort, and packability. Unfortunately, after the first rigorous hike (Ben Nevis in Scotland... very rocky to be fair) I found two small tears near the right ankle from abrading against the rocks. Still wearable and I'll still use them when traveling, but they don't stand up to very much "abuse"

    Marmot Arch Rock Pant -Mens

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36 Regular
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 207lbs

    As expected, first class materials and workmanship from Marmot. These pants "rock" (no pun intended). lightweight, very well made, excellent breathability. Perfect for hiking in warm to cool temps. Not for cold temps. Can be used in hot temps if you are one who does not like to wear shorts. These are a perfect pant for hiking in Spring, Summer, and Fall. Honestly, you can't ask for more from a hiking pant for it's intended use. The price for these pants is better than fair. An outstanding value, overall. Get them, you will like them very much. Note: I am 6' 3" and for dress pants I wear a 36 Long (34 inseam). For hiking I prefer a slightly shorter pant, no need to have the pant leg picking up dirt, and/or dragging in the dirt. These fit exatly in this manner.

    sizing

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32 reg
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I read a few of these reviews and sized down and ordered a 32 reg, I wear a 34 normally. The waist fits ok but the crotch is too tight. I will get a 34 reg if they get them, since they are out of that size right now. I like these, so I want to get a pair a size up.

    Functional and fashionable

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32 Short
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I have an athletic backside, and sometimes find it difficult to find pants that are roomy enough in the seat/crotch to be comfortable, without being baggy or poofy. These fit me well, and they are light and comfortable on the trail. As a comparison, the Marmot Transcend pants were too tight in the same size.

    I'm concerned how they will hold-up to canyoneering/slot canyons, but we'll see. I will probably get another pair of Arch Rocks in a different color, because my girl likes them so much.

    Unanswered Question

    Hey what's the exact Inseam length for a 30" Waist? I'm a 32" Inseam with a 30-31" Waist.
