User Review: Marmot Men's Rockstar Pant
Source: bought it new
- Clean Look
I had originally purchased the Marmot Screes, which are made of the same Marmot M-3 fabric, and sent them back due to the fit. They just hung too loose in the legs for me and I was looking for something more low-profile for my first pair of softshell pants. The Rockstars fit the bill perfectly.
Easily the best pair of pants I've ever hiked in. If you can find them online in the right size I'd definitely suggest making the purchase.
The four-way stretch is remarkable, the fit is clean and athletic, they shed light rain, provide excellent wind blocking protection and while the material isn't thick, I've been comfortable in cold weather with just an expedition weight base layer. I fully expect to have these pants for many years of hard wear and when they've finally hiked their last mile I'll replace them with another pair of Marmot softshells.
Can't believe I waited so long to add softshell pants to my gear. I'm hooked.
