    Size up

    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    Nice pants, seem breathable and great that they are goretex but they are very small. I have a small waist and somewhat curvy butt/hips and normally wear a 2-4, but the small was too small for me. It barely fit my waist and the seam in the middle of the seat gave me a wedgie. The medium was better in the waist but was then too voluminous elsewhere.
    Ultimately went with precip pants instead.

    Just a Little Extra

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: S
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    Marmot did an excellent job with these pants. They are sleek, and simple which aid in their diverse applications. I have used these on numerous occasions while biking in weather, and even ski touring on nice spring days. The Gore-Tex layer is all you need for complete breath-ability while exercising, while still keeping your legs dry and able to keep going.

    Along your legs are a full zip which is laminated to keep you dry when you want to be, but allow you to completely unzip to let out some built up heat if you need. These pants have no pockets which could be bothersome to some individuals, however i enjoy the no bells and whistles approach.
    Overall these pants are a great addition to any outdoor lady's adventure kit!

    Mom was happy

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small

    Purchased these as a gift for my mom. She usually wears a small/medium in similar products. I originally ordered her a medium, but they were way too small in the waste.

    The large fits her perfectly and she loves them. Used them in a light rain storm and had no issues. Great pair of GORE pants!

    XS actually fits like a 2 petite! Yay!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 110lbs

    For perhaps the first time in my life, I've found outdoorswear that fits a 5'4" 110lb frame. XS in Marmot Minimalist Women's Rain Pants are cut with room for slim jeans or several layers on wool leggings underneath and flatter your body (as much as rain pants can) by not being huge through the hips (where lots of extra fabric usually hangs from an elastic waistband). Marmot put a neat tailored snap waistband on these. I like the ankle zips and pant drawcords to pull hem near your leg. I am just waiting for rain now to try them out.

    Bizarre sizing

      I purchased these in size small in spring 2014 and did Everest base camp trek in them. They were super light , warm , waterproof and fit perfectly . I since gained 10 lbs and went bought a medium to accommodate my new chub . Somehow the waist of the medium is half an inch smaller than the small !!! They are nearly the same measurement everywhere else ... And side by side , no difference to the naked eye ... I had to return them for he large . Mind you I'm a size 27-28 in jeans and never take a large in anything !

      Don't get me wrong, these pants will keep you dry. However, I find they fit small and lack an essential feature: full zip legs! I tore the liner on my first day of wearing them just by trying to put them on over boots. I lived in these pants for a week - hiking in the rain and sliding around on snow trying to learn how to self arrest. My legs were cold, but dry. These pants are light, but for ounce counters out there they are not the lightest on the market. I would check out the OR Aspire Pant or the BD Liquid Point pant as an alternative because both have 3/4 zippers and are either as light or an ounce or two lighter.

      If you must buy these pants, size up 1 or 2 sizes for layering and mobility. Also, do NOT try to put them on over boots as you will just tear the inner layer Goretex fabric (especially if you have big feet like me).

      Light, dry, but not very durable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs small

      These pants are lightweight, pack small, and breath well. They eventually soak through (like all rain pants), but they do a great job of keeping me warm in cold and wet conditions. I can get the pants on and off without taking my boots off, but it's a bit of a juggling act (I would love if Marmot made a full zip gore-tex pant).

      Unfortunately, these pants are not very durable. I have only used them for one summer season and never wore crampons with them, but they already have rips on the inside of both legs and tears along the inner seams. I hike hard and aggressively, but I only wear the pants in inclement weather (about 20% of the time). Thus, they show a lot of wear with not a lot of use. I will patch these up and try to get another season out of them.

      Good waterproofs but too small

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small

      These waterproofs are waterproof. I like the shape but according to my measurements I am an XS (5 ft3" female, 112 lbs) but they are so snug, they are difficult to button. They also run a bit on the shorter side. I would get a size up and they would be great.

      Nice shape but very tight.

        I was looking for a lightweight but form fitting rain pant. I measured 26 inch waist and 37 inch hip, so I got the small. They are too snug even with no pants underneath. They are very attractive and lightweight, so will try next size up.
