The Armada Crest Gore-Tex 3L is a pretty bomber pant for ripping all over the mountain. It’s a technical shell, but is a bit warmer because of a flannel backer. This flannel backer is also quite comfortable. The Armada Crest Gore-Tex 3L has a pretty relaxed fit, but it’s true to size. The knees are also articulated to further help with mobility. All of the extra room means these pants run a bit more baggy, but allow plenty of room for layering underneath. For me, the small fit fine. It does have an adjustable waist tab to fine tune the fit. The inseam is about 31”, so it does bunch up a bit at the bottom as well, but I never felt like it was overly loose. The Armada Crest Gore-Tex 3L is a great pant if you like to have a more relaxed fit. The Armada Crest Gore-Tex 3L does have a jacket to pant interface to make sure to keep the deep snow out. It doesn’t have any lower leg pockets, but with two butt pockets, and two large waist pockets you have a lot of room for gear or snacks. Another cool feature unique to Armada is the Schoeller Keprotec reinforcement in the hem and bottom of the pant. This fabric is made with Kevlar among other materials, and helps to reinforce the scuff guard on the bottom of the pant and increase durability over time. Like the name suggests the Armada Crest Gore-Tex 3L pant does have a 3L Gore-Tex membrane that will keep you dry in some pretty heavy snow and rain. It’s also pretty breathable and good thing because this pant does run a bit warm. The leg vents work pretty well, and will help dump heat when you need to. Overall, the Armada Crest Gore-Tex 3L is a pretty bomber pant built to keep you warm and dry when the weather turns nasty. Its roomier fit allows for great mobility weather your hiking to your favorite stash are throwing down in the park.
