You may have already bought a Marmot PreCip jacket (it's one of the best-selling rain jackets on the face of the earth, so we wouldn't be surprised) but if you don't have any pants to go with it, you've only won half the battle. Keep your legs, pants, socks, and pocket contents just as dry and comfortable as your upper body with these full-zip Marmot PreCip pants. Lightweight, waterproof 2.5-layer construction is durable enough for bushwhacking, and full side zippers allow for easy on and off as the weather changes.
In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska on the Juneau Icefields on a school project in Glaciology. It was here on the glacier, amongst these students, that the idea of a Marmot club began. To become a Marmot, you had to climb a glaciated peak with another Marmot. One of the rules of the club was that everyone was president. Most of the other rules dealt with the collegiate fascination with bodily functions.
Eric and Dave went on to found Marmot Mountain Works in 1974, and through the years the company made lots of innovations in down jackets, sleeping bags, Gore-Tex apparel, and beyond. Their modest enterprise is now one of the largest and most respected outdoor gear companies in the world, distributed in over 60 countries, and it is still all about the highest-quality, innovative performance products.
