Description

Gore-Tex protection without unnecessary extras.

When you want protection from the elements without extra bulk, pull on the Marmot Minimalist Pant. Marmot built the Minimalist with Gore-Tex Paclite fabric for the adventurer who knows they want to make miles without lugging extra weight. Fully -taped seams seal out precip when you’re trudging through the backcountry on snowshoes, and articulated knees and ankle zippers mean you enjoy a more ergonomic fit while plummeting downhill on your skis or board.

Great Shell Pants!

super light weight so easy to find room in the pack. Great light weight shell for Winter Backpacking and early spring/late summer alpine hiking in New England. not really much at all in the way of venting and the leg cuff opening isnt very big (zips only to ankle). Would love if they made a full zip version but for now Ill keep my Precip Fullzip pants around for Emergency rain shells.

Fits well

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I'm 6'0" and often where a 34, and the large is a perfect fit. I debated getting a medium but am happy with the large.

Would these be good for hiking in Peru?

They're waterproof, breathable, and have good range of motion, but have no insulation whatsoever. If it's going to be cloudy and cool, I'd recommend finding some long underwear to wear underneath.

Responded on

Gore-Tex Paclite is a phenomenal material for waterproofing and breath-ability. These will preform well in wet conditions, but as Angus has mentioned if it's cloudy and cool long some long underwear is a must.

Do these have belt loops or a waist drawcord...

Do these have belt loops or a waist drawcord ? Doesn't look like they do and as I am right at the lower end of the medium size range I worry about them staying in place without either of these.

Responded on

These have an elastic, snap closure waist band which is great for adjusting when you're just right in between size ranges.

Adventure Completed

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

The Marmot Minimalist pants so far have worked well on a Maine hut to hut snowshoe/hiking adventure. They are light and very comfortable. Never felt restricted in movement and they pack up small. Not sure on durability or waterproof because had good weather. But they did handle the wind well and my legs were not cold with proper layering. Fit is good but ankle zippers could be a little longer to make getting off or on over a boot easier.

Strike Three - you are out.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Marmot Minimalist Pant - Looks like a great product and wish I could have tried them.
Strike one - Gear head recommended large for 5'-9" 180# 33 waist, 32 inseam. Way too long, waist a little large. - sent back.
Strike Two - Med. arrived and fit ok, but left knee had a hole in the outer fabric right out of the package - sent back.
Strike three - Replacement Med. arrived and fit ok, but left knee had a hole in the outer fabric just like the returned pair - sent back.
Canceled order.

Great Pants!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I'm 5'11 and wear a 32/33 in pants; the Medium fits perfect. These rain pants kept me bone dry in multiple heavy downpours. I may try and test these out as snowboard pants in Colorado soon. Overal I highly recommend. The only con is the price, but you get what you pay for here.

do these have any lining/insulation?

Responded on

None. These are very solid, but basic, with no frills. The Paclite is all there is to it.

I usually wear pants with 32W 29L or 32W...

I usually wear pants with 32W 29L or 32W 30L. Which size should I pick for this model? M sounds too large while S is apparently too small. Do I have any other options? Thanks.

Best Answer Responded on

Hi,
I would recommend you go with a Medium- it may have a little extra length, but with boots on it shouldn't be a problem!

Responded on

I wear 30x30 normally and found that the S is a bit tight around the waist (probably more accurate to say its 29-29.5) but the 32L isn't a huge problem since you can pull these up and they'll stay because of the tight waist. Pulled up above my hipbone, these fit nicely although I still wish they came in a 30L.

Using on future AT hike!!

I am using these on my upcoming Appalachian Trail hike in February. I have tested them out in the field and preformed perfect. Kept me dry in heavy downpour. Great product

Are the Marmot Minimalist men's pants available in large/long?

Unfortunately we will only be carrying them in the Regular lengths.
If you click on the size chart, the inseam lengths are listed for the different sizes as well.

Size up to layer

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these for my father who is a diehard Marmot fan. I followed the sizing guide and purchased medium. The pants fit, and would be good for warm weather use, but the waist would be a little tight if you wanted to layer them with cold temperature thermals.

Use them all the time

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Recently moved to a place where it rains more than I'd like, but having these pants makes it more doable. As other people have noticed, it is rather difficult to remove the pants over boots. I haven't walked through knee-high puddles, so I cannot comment on the waterproof zippers. I have worn these while riding my bike through a down-poor for 5 miles, and they held up well and dried quickly.

Gussetted knees

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Note the fullness of the gussetted knees. Flexibility is excellent when flexing at the hip and knee. Also unique in having strong exterior material wrapping the inside inch of the ankle cuff (comparable pants have soft material that can wear out when chaffing boots).
Lack of fully waterproof fly and boot zips is a the only significant detractor.

Notice the driclime lined waist. Also no waterproof zipper but it does have a button and flap. It does have a waterproof pocket.

This is the zipper and the foot opening. Not real long but enough to get some boots on. Not waterproof but with a flap and button. No extra padding so just raw GTX paclite. There is a cord to tighten them up but I have never used that.

Rain Rain Rain

Paris nicely with the Minimalist jacket. Easy to get on over pats and boots. Easy to get off when it lets up. I don't carry it as often as the jacket but if I know it's going to be wet I use it and love it. Even did a little warm weather skiing in them and they were fine.

Great Stuff

I've been using them for about a year now. I take them everywhere. Just an FYI, NOTHING is waterproof under extreme conditions. They will get moist when it really rains hard. I've also used the top and bottom as a rain suit on my motorcycle...it hasn't been a disappointment yet.

Great for cold conditions. In warmer conditions however, you just have to learn how to stay dry (they're a little warm for summer use).

Great pants, Better deal

I bought these on sale so they were 2 sizes larger than I normally wear. I am glad I did though, because they fit great over my clothes. They are 100% rain proof. I use them on my bike all the time. Not the most breathable gear, but very durable and water proof.

Gusseted?
Are these gusseted? I have a pair of the old old model precip's and they have a bit of a gusset. I saw one review stating not for sports which leans me toward a negative on these because I ride mtb in pants like these all the time and prefer them over the lame racer type downhill pants i.e. Fox, TLD etc. Pants like these are kind of a pointless buy without a gusset.

Responded on

Hey MB,

these pants are articulated, though they are not gusseted. The articulation allows for considerable movement, making them great for hiking, etc. but as mentioned in an earlier review not as much for biking, climbing etc. If you need a truly gusseted pant, you're better going with something else.
