The Marmot Pillar Pants are durable pants made from Marmot's water repellent and breathable M3 Softshell fabric. Slim fit with a well thought out feature set.
Here is a technical pant built for the vertically bound. The highly durable Pillar Pant with its streamlined fit, tapered ankles and mobile construction fits a climber’s needs to a “t”.
The Marmot Pillar Pants are constructed using M3 Softshell fabric which is Marmot's most breathable softshell for aerobic activity, and it's still highly water repellent for rainy days in the outdoors.
These pants have a streamlined fit with an excellent feature set for most mountain activities. As well as having reinforced fabric in all the useful areas, there's a wide, flat elasticated waistband, two zippered hand pockets and ankle zippers so you can easily get them on over boots. There's no belt loops for adjustment so you will need to make sure you get the right fit from the start.
Another feature that's worth mentioning is the 'snap closure'. Most pants like this have a press stud or 'popper' button. These can sometimes pop undone on there own during strenuous activities. This closure works more like a slide and then click popper. You need to slide the button along first before pulling apart, and pop back in and then slide to close. An important feature to remember so your not trying to yank them open when your desperate 'to go'.
