The Marmot Motion is a solid every day pant built to keep you warm on the mountain. It has a regular fit that is pretty true to size. I did find that the inseam is a little bit shorter than some of the other brands, but at 5’10” it wasn’t a big issue. Just be sure to check their sizing guide if you’re unsure. The insulation is warm, and there is a bit of room for layering if needed, but remember there is no venting. The articulated knees are nice, and allow for a greater range of motion. The Marmot Motion has two hand warming pockets and a cargo pocket with plenty of space for storage. With 10k/10k waterproofing and breathability this is a good option for those in a drier climate, that want a warm pant they can wear everyday on the mountain. It’s not the greatest for really wet places, or for those who spend a lot of time hiking or skinning in the backcountry, but the Marmot Motion does offer a solid everyday pant for most skiers.

Turn On’s: Size S Pants that have a bit more room in my thighs, that way I can actually use my pockets. And of course getting first chair with 12” of fresh powder on the mountain.
Turn Off’s: Pants that fit too tight in the thigh, and I can’t use my pockets. Pants too baggy in the crotch. Crowds in the mountains, and not being able to find a place to park in at the trailhead or ski resort.
