Marmot Men's Palisades Pants
Central Oregon has a winter that lasts 5 months, 8 if you include the early fall snow shoeing and the spring skiing season on South Sister. The Marmot Men's Palisades Pants will keep you warm, dry and smiling while others lament their misfortune of being suckered into moving here by the realtors. It's hard to complain about ski pants that are made from high quality Gore-Tex Performance fabric. They are waterproof and windproof to keep out the gnarly, wet storms you'll see on Mt Bachelor and breathable to let out the sweat as you skin up Tumalo for fresh turns in the bowl. Lightweight with a standard cut, these snow pants have enough room to layer up underneath when temperatures drop and articulated knees to improve mobility. Ankle zippers make for easy on and off over shoes and snow gaiters keep the powder out. Four pockets give you ample storage space for chapstick, map, bandana and a Pro Bar as you skin up to Broken Top or take the snowmobile out to Elk Lake. Cordura scuff guards protect from abrasion and sharp edges to provide years of durable wear. If you need a break from the snow, use them as rain pants on a cold winter hike along the Oregon coast. Leave the snow-free living to the lowlanders and take the Marmot Palisades Pants for men on a backcountry climb.

Reviews - Marmot Men's Palisades Pants
The pants are great...however they run on the larger side. I am 5'7'', 160lbs and the medium is a bit big. Just skied them preseason in Montana and couldnt be happier. The Gortex is perfect for long skin hikes. And even though they arent very warm, any simple long underwear or athletic sweats will be a fine base layer. Well done Marmot
Gore-Tex Performance material has a great feel to it, not stiff. Lightweight and comfortable, with good pockets. Sizing - Large fits my 36" waist just right with a thin baselayer. Not baggy, but enough room for unrestricted movement. Typical great quality from Marmot.
These pants are a bit on the expensive side but if you are the type to invest in nice gear and keep it for a while, you probably won't be disappointed in these pants. They feel good on the quality and build side and have a nice athletic trim to them, not baggy like other snow pants tend to be. My only gripe with these pants is that they are not terribly warm. I'm not prone to getting cold easily and found myself wanting (and eventually buying) a base layer for these pants. These also run on the long side; Medium is my usual size and the waist is a good fit but I have to roll up these pants otherwise I'm walking all over them.
