User Review: Marmot Men's Scree Pant
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $110
I can only speak to fit and not function although it was immediately obvious that the Scree is very well made with quality materials. They also offer as little restriction as you could possibly want and are soft against your skin. Impressive pants.
I ordered the Screes after a lot of research. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the size I wear available at any local retailers to try on in advance. When they arrived I was stoked. While they were fine in the butt, and the very forgiving elastic made them comfortable in the waist, they were too baggy for my taste. I have pretty big legs and bagginess isn't usually a problem.
I called over to a store and got someone on the floor who knew about the Screes. He said they tend to run loose in the legs. He suggested the Marmot Rockstar as an alternative which uses the same M3 material but has a more low-profile cut.
These are still excellent pants and would do as well over a base layer as they would under a hard shell. I just prefer a little more fit in the legs. The Rockstar delivered that and I'll be doing a review once I've got them out there a bit.
Of course, as it is whenever you're talking about cars, body types and tastes, your mileage may vary.
