    They're not as bulletproof as their Gore Tex Freerider pants, which are a million $$, but they're good, the Marmot Mem-Brain is their proprietary membrane like H2No for Patagonia, so they will be waterproof enough, the venting is adequate but not like a full zip that you can crank right open if you need to.

    So I would say they are not expedition-grade but totally adequate for most uses.

    No spire bib pants in mens? I'd seriously consider the combo if you had jacket and pants in stock. Freerider pants look ok, but for me bib hardshell pants are non-negotiable.
