    Great pants but the fit is off.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: xl
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 245lbs

    I wanted to keep these. The quality and the gore-tex is awesome, the price was great, but the fit was totally off. The waist and thigh fit on the xl was perfect, but the legs are cut straight leaving excess fabric behind the knee and in the lower leg. As a skier I can deal with a boot cut and a little extra room in the lower leg because I have big thighs, but this was excessive (close to 6 inches of flap behind the knee and calf). A friend of mine got these in a Large and let me try them.. the leg fit was good, but the waist was too tight with no room for layering.

    Waterproof and durable, peculiar fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"

    The Marmot Spire pant is a great pair of pants that bridges the gap between bibs and regular pants with the built in overall system. Now this system is great and all, but one things I noticed was that I really needed to spend time with the correct adjustments in order to get the right fit. I initially was having trouble consistently pulling the overalls up off of the side of my arms. REalistically it is best to get into a skiing position and adjust the fit from there. Other than thatn, these pants have been great! Waterproof on the wet days and breathable on the warm days.... I cannot complain!
    Another great product by Marmot!

    Perfect Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    A lot of reviews complained about the fit of these, which almost threw me off, but the full length vents and price were just too attractive. Im about 5"11 170lbs with a 32" waist and these pants fit absolutely perfect in a medium. I noticed the wedgey people were complaining about and loosened up the suspenders and it was fixed, and the suspenders still sit snugly on my shoulders.

    Great pant, roomy fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small

    Bought these pants as a gift for my brother after raving about my own pair, and we found they definitely fit on the roomier side. He was on the edge of needing these in an XS according to the size chart, and he's usually a small across the board. Once he put them on with a shell and boots, they looked fine, so if you like a baggier fit, you'll like these pants. Aside from fit, he found they were as breathable and waterproof as I'd been telling him mine are. We tested them out on in record-high spring skiing temps all weekend, and he was dry through the end of the day, even with the slushy conditions. Really great pant for the price.

    Great pant, weird fit

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'10"

    Great pant for backcountry touring, but I think this is the first time that I have have ever worn a size small in pants since the first grade.

    My customer wanted leave his fit experience, with this pant. He is 6ft tall size 32 waist. The Mediums fit great!

    I did 4 stars since they haven't been used much, yet.

    Good set of pants. Runs very large

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Very good material and well constructed. Good waterproofing, good elastic on the boots, looks good overall. They run very baggy. While I had some trouble with the shoulder straps sloughing off my one shoulder, i couldn't tighten them any further, as the crotch was already pretty high. Overall a good set of pants and fulfilled their purpose. Kept water/snow out, and was a good wind shield for my legs. Definitely a little loose for style, but looks good nonetheless.

    Great fit and and functionality

    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Needed a pant with ample pockets for backcountry skiing. Also wanted comfort and warmth. Have been in the back country for 11 days since purchasing and these are perfect. Also went for a different color rather than black or grey - got citronella and am getting rave reviews

    Good pant nice features190

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: med
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    Pants are well constructed. I was a manufacturer for 30 years and Marmot did a nice job. Suspender zip off as well as gaiters.
    I immediately got rid of both. Hand pockets should be 1" longer and have pulls on the sliders, also fly zipper should be 1" longer it's a little tough getting your Johnson out when you are in the elements. I've skied the pant 8 times and am pleased with performance and quality. I am 5'9 190 athletic and I just fit in to the Medium. I'd recommend this pant, the pricing for a 3 ply Gore-Tex is very competitive. adjustability on the Velcro at the waist is great and allowed me to fit in to the medium and the length is great

    Two days out and they ripped

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I have owned a pair of Arc Teryx ski pants since 2003 and relied on them for every day of skiing. They are relatively bomb proof. But this year the inside cuff fell apart and I sent them off for repair. I bought the Marmot Spire so I could keep skiing while my other pants were off for repair.

    I went out two days and already have a small tear in the knee. I took a minor fall on soft snow to cause the hole. I ski hard and fall all the time. 13 years in my old pants and no holes. Two days in these pants and I already have a hole.

    Complete bummer and real disappointment. I'll probably avoid Marmot products in the future. While the waterproofing is great, the resiliency of a product designed for active wear is questionable. If you plan to do thing outdoors in these pants you might think twice.

    And p.s. the sizing is a little large. I am 5,9 and 150 lbs. I originally purchased the M and had to return it for the S.

    Maybe Gore-Tex Performance Shell material is not as durable as Gore-Tex Pro Shell, which I normally ski with. I have skied with Gore-Tex Pro Shell Arc'Teryx bibs and jackets for years, whacking trees in the East, and never tore a Pro Shell jacket.

    Water tight

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I've worn these three times now and just love them. The material seems substantial (not thin or cheap) and they are absolutely water tight so far. I purchased them because my previous pants ended up wet from the chair lift ride - not a problem with these. The fit was just right (I'm a 31 waist and I purchased a small). They are a little baggy but I like that for layering if it's cold (below 20).

    Fit is passable, seems well made otherwi

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I'm 5'8", 155 lbs with 31" waist. Based on all the comments here, I went with a small, which fits but just barely - I don't have any wiggle room on the waist (guess I'll stay away from the Christmas meal this year). Inseam is slightly long but I expect it'll be fine with boots on. Zips and buttons are good quality, only thing is that the full length zip causes the pants to bunch up around the hips because of the length. Can't wait to take them out this year!

    So big

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'4"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    The consensus here is spot on. While these seem like solid pants, they really are quite big. I ordered an XL and they hung around my body like clown pants. Nothing against the pants, they seemed great. Just sizing mismatch.

    Odd sizing

      I am 5"9 165lbs and have a 32" waist 31" inseam. I first tried a large as that is my typical go to size in ski pants. I was literally swimming in the large (i even wore all my thick insulating layers), you could use them as a wingsuit pant. So I traded them in for a medium, the these were too small, like tight in the butt. The gap between M and L is strange, it needs a half size in between and would then fit perfect. I wish they would have fit they have all the features I like; removable suspenders with back, full zip, belt loops, decent powder cuffs.

      Great discount opportunity

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      I am 5'8'' 170lb, fit and small fits me good. Would be a better fit for someone 5'7-5'9'' a little thiner. I use 32 waist pants so I guess for someone <=30 it would be perfect. Given that the sizing chart says 30 waist I thought I might not be able to close them but not at all. They do fit tight on me but is no problem...

      If you are thin or fit it might be a very good bargain for a super technical high quality pant. I did quite some research and there aren't as many options for pants in this category.
      I will use them without the suspenders also because otherwise you do get a wedgie.. Maybe try suspenders a bit larger and crossed though. Anyway, have to try them on the mountain but considering other reviews about the pant quality and my experience with the sizing don't be afraid of considering this option in a size smaller...

      I am writing this because the other reviews were scaring me off this pants and I think that the takeaway should be that if you are thin this pants might be perfect. Just get a size smaller...

      Perfect for me

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      These pants have lots of nice little detail features like snaps at the ends of the important zippers, zip-off suspenders and zip-out ankle snow cuffs. I spent about 9 hours over 3 days skiing moguls at a resort and the pants don't inhibit bending my knees at all. Note that I'd normally prefer a baggy pant for freedom of movement in moguls. These pants are right at my sweet spot for full freedom of movement without being too baggy. I skied a few hours in freezing rain and stayed perfectly dry and warm. I cross the suspenders (I haven't tried them the normal way). I can't think of anything that could be better about these pants.

      Sizing

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'4"
      • Weight: 255lbs

      I just got these and have only worn them once, but I wanted to get a review up for sizing since it appears to be a big issue for most. Figured more sizing intel the better, so here are my stats.

      Height: 6'4"
      Weight: 255 lbs
      Waist: 38-40
      Pant Length: ~32-34

      Based off most reviews saying they run large, I bought XLs (I'm usually a XXL in most brands). The XLs fit me perfectly. Length and waist is spot on for me.

      Although I will exclusively use these for backcountry touring, snowshoeing, and other alpine endeavors, I tried them out this weekend at the resort just to get a feel and fit. They performed great and honestly never even noticed them (aside from the suspenders occasionally slipping off my shoulders as many reviewers have pointed out. Crossing them fixed it). The pants are awesome, and yes, they are just a shell. My legs never get cold though, so the most I ever wear are some wool leggings underneath (usually in sub 20F only). If you're not a grizzly bear like me, then you'll definitely want to wear some thermals underneath.

      I'll update on backcountry performance once I get them out a few times. And will upgrade to 5 stars if they perform (at this point, I have no doubt they will).

      Way to large

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large

      I normally fit into a XL just fine with a little room for extra layering when needed, however the waist on these pants were huge. I would recommend making a size smaller . Other than that seem like great pants and I just need a different size.

      Ascend the Spire

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

      Searching powder in the backcountry, storm riding at the resort, or boot packing for fresh lines, the Marmot Spire Pants perform admirably even for us knee-dropping tele skiers. After ripping the crotch seam on two pairs of ski pants from all the downhill squatting (Mammut and The North Face) it was time to find pants that can handle the abuse and more suited to mobility. The Medium fit me the best, I was swimming in the Large.

      Height: 6'1" Weight: 180 lbs
      Waist: 33" Inseam: 33"
      Size: Medium, Dark Crimson

      My favorite features:
      - Removable suspenders (I cross them to keep them falling off my shoulders)
      - Full length leg zippers provide adequate ventilation for touring
      - Gore-tex material stands up to the elements, even during a blizzard and negative wind chill

      My only complaint is the lack of insulation means on colder days (single digits and below) I have to wear a thick underlayer to keep from getting chilled.

      Unanswered Question

      What would be a good size for me? I'm 5'10, 160lbs, 31-32 waist typically.

      Would these work as an everyday ski touring pant? I'm 6"1, 215 lbs and typically fit into a 36" waist with a 32" inseam. If fit for touring, what would be my optimal size?

      These would work as an everyday touring pant, and or general pant to use when its cold and you are walking through snow. Could also use them alpine climbing and or ice climbing.



      I spoke with Kyle who owns the pants. He is a true 34" waist and he fits in the medium, so the large would be fine for you!



      If you have anymore questions feel free to send me an email or call!

      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!
