2018 Marmot Layout Cargo pant Review by A Better Ski

Let’s check out the Marmot Layout Cargo Pant.  These are a well crafted and comfortable pant that are well suited to handle average conditions for care-free days on the hill.  When I first put them on I liked the way they felt and looked. Lets see what else we have. . .

Tester: Dan

Size: L

Waterproofing and Breath-ability: The Marmot Layout Cargo pant has a 10k rating on both waterproofing and breath-ability.  This qualifies as good but not not great.  These pants are good for an average day with average conditions.  Alone, they wouldn’t  face cold, winter conditions or wet heavy snow. 10k is good enough to keep sporadic moisture from absorbing and breath-able enough to allow enough moisture to escape for those of us who ski recreationally.  If you are planning on long days with rough conditions or a lot of activity with hiking or touring, it is worth the extra money for a higher-rated membrane like the Freerider pant. With that said, there are open vents on the inner thighs for extra versatility in breath-ability.

Warmth:  These pants are not heavily insulated and are meant as more of a shell. I like to have light-weight pants around for days on the hill when you know temperatures are mild and the sun is shinning. Add some nice thermal leggings and you’re good down into the high 20’s. Days colder than that, better find a more insulated pair of pants unless you run hot and then you’re good for a few more degrees.

Fit:  I like the way the Marmot pants in general fit and felt. They have this soft, cozy feeling that feels good against the skin.  These pants fit true to size. I would guess that the range is 32″-36″ and they have plenty of length in the legs.

Features: Marmot MemBrain® Waterproof/Breathable Fabric; 100% Seam Taped 2-layer Construction; RECCO® Avalanche Rescue Reflector; Internal Leg Vents; Brushed Tricot Seat and Thighs; Thigh Pockets with Water Resistant Zippers; Adjustable Waist with Snap Closure and Zip Fly; Internal Gaiters with Gripper Elastic; Scuff Guards

Bottom Line:  I liked these Marmot Layout Cargo pants. They fit and felt great and are a well crafted pant.  They are perfect for early and late season conditions or just your average day on the slopes.
