    Don't let rainstorms catch you with your pants around your ankles.

    Sometimes, it rains. C'est la vie. The best thing you can do is be prepared and bring the Marmot PreCip Men's Pants with you when you're wandering around in the wilderness. Weighing under nine ounces, they won't slow you down, and they won't let you get soggy, either, seeing as they're designed with Marmot's waterproof and breathable NanoPro membrane. Full seam taping will keep any rogue drops at bay, and ankle zips and snaps help you seal your cuffs down over your boots for extra-double-secret security.

    Great price for these pants

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

    Bought these as a gift, here is what they had to say:

    These Marmot pants are very light weight and compress really well for backpacking. These waterproof pants zip up 12 inches to allow for ease of removing your boots. I have used these in a down pour and they kept me comfortably dry. Also, these pants are true to size.

    Buy them.

    Best gear investment I've ever made.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M/Reg

    I've spent the last fifteen years working professionally as an outdoor educator, backcountry horseback guide, packer, hunting guide, and park ranger. Along with all that I am a pretty serious backpacker, mountaineer, climber, horseback rider, and adventurer. These pants are easily the best piece of gear I've ever encountered. I mean I have had the same pair for going on 13 years now and they are still waterproof even after using them well over 500 times. About once a year I think that I should replace my rain pants because they just have to give out sometime! But no, every time I'm out with them and getting rained on or snowed on and I throw them on, they are still perfectly waterproof. They were worth every penny and more. Really, from someone who really works gear hard and has spent the better part of their life in the backcountry; these pants are just incredible. Buy them, you will not be disappointed. There are a lot of comments about size here and maybe Marmot has changed that over the years but I love the flexibility they give you in the way they fit. You can wear them over anything comfortably.

    Dry as a bone!

    These pants fit as described. I was able to put these pants on over my boots in the middle of a downpour. Packable and very light. I did not get overheated while wearing these pants but I was only walking with minimal strain. Overall, these pants would work in anyone's pack and you won't be disappointed.

    serve their purpose well

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought these to bike commute in rainy weather. They work great for that and keep my dry. They are light enough and easy to slip on and off. I also tried them for running in a downpour in pretty cold weather. While breathable, I wouldn't say they are the best for heavy activity in moderate weather. But I stayed warm and enjoyed the elements. These are not some new super-duper clothing item that you can't wait to go out and try. But they are solid and do the job.
    At 6'3" and 175 the large fits well in length but is a little big in the waist, but that's a better it for me in length than a medium

    Great fit, super light and easy to use

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

    Love the fit on these pants. I'm 5'10" and 180lbs and usually have a size 32/32 in jeans and i bought the medium and they fit like a glove.

    I use these pants mainly to ride my scooter. So for me it's important that i can slip them on/off quickly. The ankle zippers are just long enough to create a good opening so i can slip these over my dress pants without taking my shoes off.

    The elastic waitband is comfortable and the pockets are a nice touch.

    So far so good!

    I purchased the PriCip pant due to its small pack size and light weight. I spent a very wet day in northern PA woods and was very pleased with its performance, It handled brush and some briars without a tear, didn't feel clammy, and kept me dry. I may give a 5 star review after more use.
    I am 6' 1" ,215lb and the large pant fit nicely over my regular clothes.

    Attractive Sizing Options

    I really appreciate the fact that Marmot understands people come in many different sizes. And I appreciate the fact that Backcountry stocks the sizes that Marmot produces.

    When hiking I don't want any piece of equipment that is too long, too short or incapable of delivering on its intended purpose. Clearly not the case with the Precip pants. They fit great and as expected they shed water. As advertised!

    I got these pants for commuting to work while riding my bike in the rain. I'm 5'10, 180, waist 32 and the medium size was a great fit. Wore them over a pair of jeans, they breath well and kept me dry from the morning rain. I haven't worn them in a heavy downpour but look forward to giving that a try soon.

    Marmot PreCip Rocks!

    Three days after receiving my new PreCip Jacket and Pants they got the ultimate test outdoors in a torrential downpour in NWFL.
    73 degree day with a foot of recorded rainfall. I was covering a funeral for a slain officer in the morning, and then flooding from the rains later that evening. As a news photographer , I have to use gear that keeps me working in the harshest conditions. Both kept me cool and bone dry! PreCip made an ugly day a whole lot better. Props to Marmot for making a lightweight yet "heavyweight champion" in performance! Best yet was the price. Thanks to a Backcountry sale, I was able to snag both for under $200!!! That is performance and value.

    Marmot PreCip Rocks!

    great product and great service

    The pant is really great. Shipping is very fast. More importantly, the service is really good.

    Perfect for Hiking

      I used the on very rainy days in the Alps. Stayed completely dry, breathability was amazing, better than my Goretex Paclite jacket. Outside of mountaineering use or severe bushwhacking, these are the perfect pair of rain pants for hiking and backpacking.

      Lightweight and reliable in all seasons

      • Size Bought: L

      Great in mild or the more brutal storms they shine in any weather. The cut is awesome allows room for insulating layers or to throw on real quick makes them a real universal garment for any stormy occasion. One of the nice features is the full-length side zippers along with ankle zips with snap-tab cuff closures allow easy on/off without removing shoes. I take these pants everywhere and have used them several times on the golf course when weather is looking sketchy pack them down and stick them in the golf bag. Great pants to have on hand and be prepared with!

      I loved the Precip Jacket so much that I got the pants as well. Great breathability, light for packing and great at keeping me dry!

      Initial impressions...

      OK. Greetings fellow outdoor enthusiasts and forest freaks. On a whim I added the PreCip jacket and pants to my quiver. I am a lightweight hiker/backpacker and avid bicyclist. Unboxed them yesterday and rode in the gear in a thick humid fog/mist this morning in Colorado (unusual). Gear worked great. Kept me dry, breathed correctly and did not make me a puddle inside the gear.
      These pants are replacing a pair of GoLite super expensive lightweight rainpants that are riddled with holes and which have not held up well.
      Some impressions:
      The pants fit perfect and are true to size. Not too small and not baggy, yet has room for 1-2 layers underneath. When I opened the box yesterday, I put the pants on over my work pants and they felt great.
      There are 2 front pockets and a back pocket. All zip.
      Ankle zips give plenty of room to put on over boots. My experience was sitting was the best way to get the pants on/off over boots. There was no struggle if done slowly.
      The ankles have a button and an elastic pull string for tightening.
      Waist has a regular tie drawstring.
      Not sure if this material can hold up to multiple long snow glissades and I would probably not put my crampons or ice axe near these things since they seem light they'd be easily shredded. But as a standard light rain pant, they will do the trick. I was able to crush them down to a ball the size to fit in a quart size ziplock. Getting them crushed and zipped into a pocket may be a stretch since the pockets are light mesh.
      Overall, a well thought out pair of rain pants.

      Great pull-over pants for rain

      Pants did exactly what one expected - rain rolled easily down them.

      Size medium fit comfortably over my size 32 hiking pants.

      I'm 6'3'' and typically wear pants with a 33" waist and a 34" inseam. Should I go with a Mediuim Long or a Large Regular?

      Xl or xxl? I have a 39-40 inch waist and a 34-36 inseam depending on how things are cut. 6'3" tall. I don't want them tight but I don't want them overly baggy either. Which size would be the best?

      Best Answer


      I believe they will be too long for your inseam at 6.3. I have the xl. i m 6.7. the pant cuff just about touch the ground at my heel. my waist is 36. i wear them over other pants when it rains. it is a comfortable fit.. not binding...a bit on the looser side. probably if you are stuck on these pants, you would fit the xl waist... its elasticized and string tightened/loosened.

      I do see a front pocket, so what gives?...

      I do see a front pocket, so what gives? wrong picture?
