Drier than a desert.

Worth their weight in gold (12oz of gold is worth a lot, right?), the Marmot PreCip Full-Zip Men's Pants will keep you drier than a Saharan summer for about the cost of a pound of sand. Marmot's NanoPro membrane is rated 10K waterproof and 17K breathable, and is enhanced by fully taped seams to make sure no sneaky moisture finds its way in. The PreCip also has full-length side zippers, so you can get your pants on and off over your boots, and zippered pockets to hold your good-gravy-please-come-out-sun-it's-been-two-weeks lucky rabbit's foot.

  • NanoPro 10K waterproof/17K breathable membrane
  • Fully taped seams
  • Full-length side zips with storm flap
  • Zip hand pockets and back pocket
  • Elastic drawcord waist

Matched my Jacket.

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Height: 6'1"
    Weight: 150 lbs

I tried the these pants. I liked how they paired with my jacket.



  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 6'2"
    Weight: 200 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

I'm 6'2" 200lbs and I fit perfectly into a size Large. These are a great option to have for hard shell pants. The full length zippers make them easy to slip on over other layers or clothing. I took these as a hard shell pant to Rainier this past July and they kept me completely dry when traveling on the Inter Glacier up to Camp Schurman. They also did a great job of blocking out any wind chill in moderate wind conditions. These pants are also light in weight if you're trying to watch your pack load. I would definitely recommend these pants for their versatility, ability to keep you dry, and for wind blocking. Would buy the same pair of pants if I had to make the purchase again.


They keep you dry

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small
  • Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 152 lbs
    Size Purchased: medium

Full length side zippers are nice. Not very breathable.


Great pants

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

This is pretty much the same review I wrote for the Marmot PreClip Jacket because well, it's pretty much the same thing but in the pants version.

These pants keep the rain out, are lightweight, packable and look stylish. I take them with every time I hike or backpack and know that there is a change of rain. I have been stuck high up in mountains during absolutely downpours and these pants will keep you dry underneath. You will be warm if you wear these in 70+ degree weather while doing any sort of physical activity. They do have side zips that can be used to help vent or unzip all of the way to take the pants off without having to remove your shoes which is a huge plus!
As the review mentioned below, they do get a bit baggy. However I was able to use the velcro to adjust the waist slightly smaller. Overall these are great for the price and would recommend them if you're looking at items in this price range.


Do not stay on your waist

  • Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 200 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

I am a 32 -33 waist and as soon as these got wet I had to continually pull them up and there is no adjustment around the waist. Okay if you wear suspenders but I got the full-zip for quick on-off with crampons, which is negligible if you have to bust out suspenders.

I am 5'11" 145# (tall&slender female) -- i am considering these mens pants for riding (as passenger) on motorcycle (in rain) .. #1) how waterproof ARE they ? 2) do you think a small-long would be better than medium-long. I could possibly at times wear them over leather chaps. Womens' rain pants just don't come long enough ! thanks ...

Hey RL,

I have always stayed dry in these so I would expect you would as well on your motorcycle. As far as fit goes I am 5' 9" and typically where a size 30/30 pants. I got these in a Medium/Regular and probably should have gone with a Small/Regular or Medium/Short instead. Following the size chart for your measurements as a guide I feel like there is still room for layering.

I'm looking for a waterproof pant to use it for biking. Is the waterproof membrane of these pants resistant enough to the friction?

I was wondering if someone could help me with which size to get. I"m 140lbs and 5'8", I generally where a size 30/30 in mens pants, any thoughts gratefully appreciated!

Hey Ian,

You 100% for sure want these in size Small. I am 145 lbs at 5' 9" with a typical 30/30 pant and had to size down from a Medium because I originally thought the Smalls would be too small.

Should you buy a size larger than your normal size if you plan to slip these on over your existing pants?

Best Answer

I would suggest grabbing up your normal size as the Precip Full Zip Pants run large. I'm 6' 175 lbs and wear a medium which accommodates plenty of room for extra layers. These pants totally rock and are simple to slip on and off without taking your boots off.



Are the full zips worth the extra money...

Are the full zips worth the extra money and weight?

Best Answer


That all depends on what you intend to use these pants for. The whole idea of a full-zip pant is to be able to put them on without removing your foot wear.

If you are using these pants in tandem with crampons or ski boots, the full side zip is a huge benefit. If you are just using them with casual shoes or hiking boots, the side zips are less critical.

Either way, side zips are very nice when the rain comes and goes quickly, and you don't have the time/convenience of taking off your footwear to slide into your Marmot Precip Pants.
