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.

Not waterproof As description
Feel so bad to see these pants Absolutely Not waterproof enough as description on Rainy day when I ride on a motorbike,. My knees and legs get wet. Maybe I would purchase the rain pants with Gore-tex .

Good from the waist down
Not a fan of the purely elastic waist. An integrated belt would be much better to adjust them as needed.. I keep them for my backups; they work fine in the rain.

I got these as a gift for my parents to take to Iceland. The nice thing about these are the that they are breathable. So they don't get as hot as some waterproof pants, especially those made of Gore-Tex. If your end goal is a breathable rain pant for hiking I would highly recommend these. These kept my parents completely dry is constant rain and mist! The full side zips are convenient as well for taking on and off throughout the day as needed while keeping boots on.

Well maiden pants. It's easy and fast to take off and put on.

Marmot has changed their sizing so that the medium is now too large and the small is too small. I am 32/32 and for medium I am having to use suspenders. The small is fine in the waist but too narrow in the leg and too short. Marmot also added ~2 oz of weight, which for a rain pant that most of the time rides in your pack is a problem. Basically, they took a great shell pants and "improved" them to death.

Gave these as a gift and the recipient really likes them. They fit true to size and have adequate adjustability.

High Ratings are Justified
Got these for late Spring through early fall - primarily for fly fishing floats and hiking. All the reviews I checked put these at the top of the list for lightweight rain pants. I agree, super light, pack able, zipper works great for the full length of the leg and they've been as advertised in the rain - no "car wash" showers in em yet. Pockets are generous & well positioned. They look and feel sturdy without being stiff - a little "crinkly..."

Newer pants miss features from older ver
These pants will keep you dry. However, my older pair of the full zip Marmot pants had more valcro on the size and an adjustable cinch cord in the middle to made the pants a bit tighter and secured. Lacking this, if you put things in the pocket (which are handy), they can pull the pants down while walking, etc. so I'm always pulling the pants up. Of course, if your waist is the "right size" then, you may not have to worry about this. Also, this newer full-zip pants is using probably better waterproof material, but it makes more noise than my older Marmot pants and it (older pants) had a very lite lining on the inside which made it more comfortable. However, the Marmot pants will keep you dry, but just be ready to yank on the pants every once and awhile. Don't know why Marmot got rid of the cinch in the waist and cut down on the valcro. Hopefully their newer version will bring them back.

Does the Job
Bought this for a Rainier climb later in the year but so far in test runs out in the snow and trails these have been great. I'm a 36 waist and large size pants fit well with room for a baselayer and climbing pants under them.

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

Why did you leave a review if you didn't use them? No one cares that they happened to match your jacket.

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
Full length side zippers are nice. Not very breathable.

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
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.

Help me! I am tall 6”1,185lbs, which size should I pick?
July 19, 2018
Hey Joe, what is your waist size? I would imagine give your height/weight you are going to be between a M/L. Feel free to reach out to me directly via the information listed above.

Will the bottom hem of these fit over AT ski boots?

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 ...
September 5, 2014
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!
May 21, 2014
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?

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. Enjoy! Scooter

Are the full zips worth the extra money and weight?

Pat, 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.
