Super comfortable softshell pants with plenty of stretch and freedom of movement. The Portal pants are super versatile and wel suited to climbing, hiking and general outdoor wear.
From quick scrambles to steep pitches, high-activity pursuits on the mountain are made easier in the midweight Men's Portal Pants. Part of our M3 Softshell collection, these midlayer pants offer extreme comfort and water repellency, and get top marks for stretch, softness, and packability. Articulated knees and a gusseted inseam ensure you have the mobility you need. These climbing pants have an adjustable waist with snap closure and adjustable drawcord leg hems, so you can easily customize your fit. Stow gear in the zippered hand pockets or thigh pocket.
Marmot's Portal Pant are designed with the stretch, comfort and durability needed for climbing pants to succeed. They are much more versatile and are just as good for hiking and general outdoor wear. The design and cut of the pants obviously maximises the range of movement but the level of adjustability in the waist and leg hems allows you to make changes depending on the task at hand to stay comfortable.
The softshell material provides enough stretch but it is also breathable for when things heat up. There is a good amount of water repellency in the fabric. All the pockets are secure enough for important bits with zip closures which, again is a nice touch for practical outdoor pants.
