The pants are great, look good and keep you behind dry all day long rain or snow. They are technically shell pants, but actually have inner layer that becomes light insulation on the thighs and the seat for added warmth, very thoughtful of Marker. Highly recommended, just keep in mind that they are a bit on the larger side - I wear 31-32 jeans and S in these pants fits me perfectly (actually had to exchange M for an S). So if you have similar measurements and wonder if S will fit, they likely will.

Overall, these are well-made pants and offer a lot of value at the sale price ($123.xx). Based on other reviews, I thought I would need a Large size instead of my normal Medium (33 X 32) size. I actually ordered a pair in L and M just to make a side-by-side comparison. As expected from the other reviews, the Medium pants were just too small in the waist, even though they fit perfectly in all other areas. The Large pants fit good in the waist, but much too large everywhere else (inseam, rise and overall bagginess). BUMMER!
I wound up returning both and will continue looking.

Was looking for for a pair of pants like these for a while now but couldn't find any green with some print design or graphics anywhere. I just love these pants! The color/pattern is very pleasant for the eyes, the fabric feels premium at touch and they are very light weight too. Regarding the size, yes, you guys are right, the waist is a bit smaller than usual but for someone like me 5'7" and approx 150 lbs the M size is a great fit.

Nice details (pockets, zippers, leg snow cuffs) and quality. Color and pattern bright & cheery for that special day. BUT.... the sizing is grossly wrong!! I bought 2 pair (blue and black) in a LARGE size (36-38 inch waist), but the actual size is no more than MEDIUM or less! These pants must have been "mis-manufactured" in waist size!! I dare not exchange for XL size because the leg length would be too long. I'm going to return these pants for credit, and not even try XL size. That's too bad for me since I bought these as "Barn Burner" specials with very attractive pricing.

This is typical of Marker; it's almost like their sizing is for women. And, don't trust their size chart. I bought these pants in L, and their chart says 36 - 38" waist, but I measured them, and they are just under 36", and can only be adjusted to be smaller. The hips and legs are sized as other L ski pants, or slightly looser, but the waist is tight. If I were to buy an XL, they'd to too big everywhere but the waist.
I have Spyder, Ride, 686, Sessions, North Face, and HeliHansen ski pants, and all those fit fine in L. Columbia runs large, so I wear a M in those.
It's a bummer I have to send them back, as the fabric (waterproof with no insulation, which is typical for Gore-Tex pants) would be great for those wet snowy spring days.

I pulled these out of the box and couldn't believe how attactive they are. The SBT picture doesn't do these pants justice. OK, now to try them on. Sucking in my 32" stomach that may have expanded a bit during the holidays, I finally got them snapped. SBT says waist "33-24". No way! OK, if I go down to my summer weight, they'll fit. But, I don't ski in the summer. I won't be able to get a layer of anything warm under them. So, back they go.

Marker Mars Print Gore-Tex Shell ski pants in large (claims to be 35"-36" waist with 31" inseam).
I have shell ski pants from The North Face and REI. All of these shell pants are mediums and fit
me very well (6' tall, 185 lbs, advanced skier). I wear dress paint 34" x 31.5" and cotton jeans 34" x 34"
(shrinkage of cotton in length). Based upon other reviews, I ordered the large and a glade I did. These
fit me very well. The pants are not baggy like snowboard pants. The legs are kind of stove piped so you
have room to layer and move. Minimal pockets (two hand warming zip pockets in front
and a single zip pocket on the rear). I like the minimalist features. Manufacturing and material are top
notch, you can't beat Gore-Tex, scuff guard protection, loop & hook adjustments at the waist, external belt
loops, inner leg zip vents, snow gaiters with single snap & loop & hook closer, 7.5" cuff zipper. The back of the
waste rises to protect you from wind and snow getting at your kidneys when you bend over or from blowing powder.
I would have given these a 5 star except the zippered cuffs aren't long enough to allow me to put a knee
brace on while wearing the pants. I'll just have to deal with that on my own. Great shell pants.
