    Details

    Hope for immaculate skies, but be ready for the fifty-year storm.

    It doesn't take long for menacing clouds to turn into powerful storms that leave you soaked and cold out on the trail. The Marmot Women's PreCip Pants may not be able to hold back storms, but they keep you dry and comfortable on a rainy afternoon. These lightweight pants weigh in at just half a pound so you'll hardly notice them in your backpack if you bring them along on your day hike or backpacking trip. Or if it's pouring before you even hit the trail, don these protective pants from the get-go. The PreCip is 43% more breathable than last year, while offering solid, 10K-rated waterproof protection.

    The fully taped seams keep rain drops from sneaking through the cracks, and zippered pockets protect items inside. Adjust the drawcord on the elastic waist for a secure fit. When it's time to pull the pants on or off, open up the side ankle zippers and easily slide the pants over your hiking boots, or open up the ankle zippers when you need a little extra ventilation. If you run into dense, scratchy brush that's closing in on the trail, the pants' rugged nylon ripstop fabric is up for the challenge: it's made to resist wear-and-tear so it'll get you back to camp unscathed, and keep you going through many a wet excursion.

    You'll stay dry just fine

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Yes, these pants do have a weirdly high waist. However, if you throw looking cute out the window, you can tuck your baselayer top into the pant to help keep out any moisture or snow.

    One thing about this is that the fabric is VERY slick (more so than the average rain pant), so if you are thinking of using these for any mountaineering activities such as glissading...proceed with caution because you will go quite fast.

    Summary: You'll stay dry. Bottom zippers and snaps are nice. I'm 5'5", normally wear a size 8, and the medium fit comfortably with a baselayer underneath. Good for the price point.

    Gets the job done, if unstylishly

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    These were a great buy. Sure, they're not the most flattering fit, and the waist came up too high-- then again, I'm 5'4" and I was just pleased that these weren't too long. They were comfy with enough room for my legs not too feel suffocated.

    They Get the Job Done

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XS

    I have only used these pants a few times, but so far I have found them comfortable and fully waterproof. I have used them hiking and sitting on the ground at camp in the rain and they have not snagged or torn. They seem to run a bit small and short.

    Practical and Lightweight

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    The pants are not lined, so they stick to your skin if it is warmer. They are extremely lightweight and pack easily away. They fit great and the pockets are nice and deep. The pockets also have zippers so you can't lose belongings.

    Solid workhorse rain pants

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

    This is my second pair of Marmot PreCip rain pants. I live in the Pacific Northwest and these pants have kept me dry in some seriously wet weather (think torrential downpour in Olympic National Park). I bought my first pair (and a PreCip rain jacket) back in 2007 or so if I remember correctly, and the only reason I finally had to give them up is because I tore a massive hole in one of the legs on an old barbed wire fence while out on a plant survey. In light of that experience, I'd recommend these for hiking or backpacking on trails, but not for anything off-trail with the potential for snagging on thorny plants, old barbed wire, etc. The material isn't strong enough to take that kind of beating.

    I would also recommend hand washing any PreCip gear with a gentle detergent to make it last even longer. If you get lazy like I did and throw it in the washing machine repeatedly with the rest of your laundry (and heaven forbid forget it's in there and toss it in the dryer), the waterproof inner coating will eventually start to peel off and your gear will no longer keep you as dry as it once did. That said, it took almost 8 years for that to happen, so I really can't complain.

    No, ladies, they won't make you look particularly svelte, especially when you're my height, but I bet you're too busy enjoying the mountain scenery to care about that sort of thing. When it comes to staying dry, you really can't beat them.

    Tl;dr: These are high quality, durable rain pants that will serve you well for many years as long as you don't abuse them.

    Nice Fit

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

    Unlike others, I DO NOT feel as though these pants run small. I'd say they are true-to-size and even offer a generous (i.e., comfortable and not a "slim" fit). This is great news for those of us with womanly bellies! Unfortunately I heeded the caution of others and first ordered an XL, which was massive on me and returned for an L. I have not had a chance to use these in the rain, but will be taking them on the JMT this coming summer. I'm sure they'll do fine. I am 5'4, 155 lbs., 34-35" waist.

    Nice and dry

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

    Mom says: "When hiking in Scotland, the threat of rain is always there. I kept these rolled up in my daypack, and was very happy to have them on more than one occasion. I ordered a small (I’m 5’6”, 128 pounds) and felt like the fit was good. Plenty of room to get them on over my other pants and still be able to move. They aren’t stylish — waist is extremely high — but when the wind is blowing and the rain is coming down sideways you’ll be glad for any and all coverage."

    Good fit (short legs), light pant

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

    I am 5'2, 105 lbs and the XS small fit well (comfortable over base and hiking pant layers). The length is just long enough. Pant moves well / allows for bending / squatting. Ankle zip only but I prefer the weight savings. Have not tested in field yet.

    Bring on the Rapids

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    Bought these to stay dry while rafting the Colorado River for a week, and they definitely did the trick (until a rapid sent water UP my pants legs, but that's not Marmot's fault!) I like that they're thin, so even in hot weather, they're comfortable. I bought Large to be able to wear them over hiking pants and boots, but I don't think a smaller size would have been long enough for my 36" legs. Definitely like the ankle side zips to slip them on over shoes without having to take anything off.

    Durable and waterproof, a little frumpy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    I have used these pants while training with my dog in the mornings doing agility and cardio. I wear these when the field or trail is all wet, allowing me to kneel down with the dog and also to keep his muddy mess off my running pants. I also wore them as my outer waterproof layer when hiking Mt Rainier. They did great with the twiggy surroundings even when I fell several times. No rips.



    I am 5'7" and 136 pounds. I have narrow hips, not much of a waist, and noodle thin legs. I ordered a size medium, which fits well. I usually wear a size 6 in Ann Taylor, J Crew, or GAP so I feel I have to upsize with all Marmot clothes. My only complaint is that the hip rise is a little high so that I kind of feel like I have on Urkle pants but then the inseam could use another inch or so to give more coverage when I bend my knees. I still prefer them to any of the others I have tried. One star off for high hip rise and loss of coverage at ankle.

    Don't leave home without your rain pants. The Marmot Precip pants are lightweight, easy to pack, breathable and will keep you dry. I am very tough on gear and these pants are built to last. Whatever trail obstacles lay ahead in the backcountry, the precip's take on with ease. They fit true to size. Equipped with ankle side zips and a drawstring waistband, a customizable fit is a cinch. Most importantly the precip's keep you dry. Excellent product at a reasonable price point. Bring on the rain!
