Amy Skowronskiwrote a review of Marmot PreCip Pant - Women's on January 22, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
The waistband goes up to right below your bellybutton, which is perfect for combining with a rain jacket, because without a doubt you will stay dry. These pants are lightweight and fold down relatively small, but nothing crazy. The zippers on the calves are great - you can leave your boots on when you put them on!
Even if you just leave them in your pack and rarely use them, you'll be glad for the times you need them. Definitely a good investment.
