These pants are great for hiking and keeping your legs free from scrapes or scratches from trail foliage.
The water repellency works great, medium to lightweight material is good in spring, summer or fall.
Size runs slightly larger than the norm (something I find with a lot of marmot brand clothes) so order 1/2 to one size smaller than what you normally wear.
These pants will last forever!! I absolutely love these pants- and all marmot clothes are very good quality!!
I also love the marmot rock star pants for lighter weight summer hiking.

Really weird cut. Reminds me of jodphurs (the riding pants). Great big waist and hips area, then narrows to a normal fit. Cannot imagine that more than a very few women would have the right shape to wear these.|Disappointed. I am out a total of $16 in shipping with nothing to show for it.

OK ladies. A guys' perspective on these pants as I bought them for my friend after doing a ton of research and owning some Marmot soft shells of my own.
If you haven't yet worn soft shell pants while hiking I highly suggest you give them a try. I won't hike with anything but and now; neither will my friend.
The Screes vary a bit from the Rockstars, also available on STP at a RIDICULOUSLY low price in that they have a touch of insulation. While these won't function on their own in cold temps, you'll be comfortable and dry in the 40's and above.
They are low profile, which means a slim fit, but the four way stretch is outstanding. My friend says she likes the slight feeling of compression but her movement is never compromised. And with my similar low profile Marmot soft shells, I've had no problem with a midweight or even expedition weight base layer under them.
While not considered waterproof they effectively shed light rain and snow and the waistband has a nice stretch. The zippered leg is a nice touch too and they can be cinched up if you want a little air on your lower legs.
And if you're thinking about pulling the trigger you won't find a better price anywhere than STP.
Oh...and as a guy I'll give a big thumbs up on the look. NOTHING beats a woman on the trail with some good fitting soft shells. :)

The only reason I'm returning these pants is that they are a fitted style, which means that I can't wear layers under them. Not being able to wear layers with these pants greatly limits how much i'd be able to wear them here in Wyoming - it's just too cold most of the winter. Other than that, they fit well on slim frames (order a size larger than you normally wear) and are flattering. They sit at the natural waistline and have zippers and cinchers at the ankles.

I'm sending these pants back. There have a strange fit. I'm usually a size 12. They are big in the hips (which is where I need the room), a bit long (which I have no problem with), but fit fine at the waist.

If only the pockets weren't a bit too small, the pants would score a 5 as they are quite stylish and very practical. Unfortunately I'd read other Marmot reviews of them being small and trusted the size guide, so the stretchy size 12 could have fitted a size 16. Sierra kindly sent a size 12 and they are perfect for my usually size 11 wife.
