What are the best shortest Gore-Tex pants around?
Or are there any?

I'm 5'6

I'm 5'4", so I feel your pain. (But for all the times you have to dyno for a hold, or do three moves to your 6'2" partner's one, isn't it great every so often to watch him stuffed up under some overhang with his knees grazing his chin? Heh, heh, heh...)

I've got a pair of Marmot Precip pants (not full zip) in a size small

Thanks.

Anyone else have experience with other brands or pants.

I've noticed that Obermeyer makes pants in short inseam.

Anyone have any experience using their products?
Do you think they would be on par with Marmot, etc, for mountaineering aplications?

Hi,

I'm 5'5" and I believe there must be many of us out there. I also wear Marmot pants and they seem to fit me better. I have been wearing Marmot 3 ply Gore-Tex climbing bid for years and they fits me well.

I also noted that Jagged Edge Mountain Gears makes climbing pants in shorter length too. The web site is:

www.jagged-edge.com

Give them a try.

Re: short pants? Arc'Teryx?

I know they have a Tall option - call their 800 # to see if they make a short - I think they might

Hope this helped!
