The Marmot Men's PreCip Pant. The PreCip rain pant sets the standard for lightweight backpacking, hiking and mountain travel rainwear that is eminently affordable.
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 ankle zips assist with on/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.

I bought these pants for a mountain hunt I went on near Terrace, BC.
I normally hate wearing rain pants and only use them when I absolutely have to, I didn't want to spend to much. So these fit the bill.
When I got to the area I would be hiking in for the next week, the weather had turned from bad to worse. I wore these pants for about 75% of my trip, and I was very impressed. They kept me dry and where far more breathable then I would of imagined for a rain pant under $100.
I bought the xxl to layer over my hiking pants (Also because they were on sale!). And they where perfect. I am 6'1, 235lbs, and normally wear a 38 inch waist pant.
When not in use they are extremely light and packable, had them in the side pocket of my bag with plenty of extra room.
All in all I could not if been any happier.
Bought these pants to use as part of my rain gear, which they work excellent for. I carry these with me everywhere because of how light they are and they pack very small. The zip length is perfect for sliding over shoes or boots easily. I also use these for riding my bicycle on cold days, help up great in 30 degree weather for 11 miles one trip, blocked wind great. Also ended up using these as ski pants as I'm not a frequent skier and didn't want to buy full on ski gear, where they worked great at keeping me dry, just needed to wear some thermal gear underneath as these provide no warmth really. Overall, a great product that is useful for more than just rain protection.
Every one of us gear freaks has their brand that they are loyal to, mine is Marmot. I always get a long life out of their gear no matter the product and can always expect their clothing will fit my frame. These pants are no different, size Small fits perfectly for my 30 inch waist and Medium fits baggy for heavy layering. Durability is on par, they shouldn't snag or tear unless you put a blade to them; at which point I don't know what you were expecting to happen. Personally, I would like to see some reflectors on these at some point for those of us who run in these, that or some colors that would stand out.
You're really not going to get too much better than these for the money you pay. The precip line by Marmot has developed a reputation for being a really good value in both price and performance. I've had these for about 4 years now and used them about 8 or 10 times and they look brand new. They are surprisingly durable howeverI still wouldn't want to abuse them too much. They're not gaiters. They'll keep you dry, they'll breath just about as good as any other rain gear, and they're at a reasonable price. You really can't as for more from a pair of rain pants
When that afternoon thunderstorm rolls in too quick and there is not a tree in sight, these pants go on over boots quick and keep your legs toasty and dry. I've never had a problem with these pants in more than one downpour, but if that quick storm turns into a few days of soggy weather, these pants start to lack. Once one part starts to get wet, the rest of the pants take on water. But on the upside, they dry really quick - like going from soaking to dry in a couple of hours. They are perfect for the price.
I use them for a 20min bicycle commute to work and back. They're light, don't take up much room in my bag, and keep my pants dry; so far they haven't added much warmth this winter, but I'll likely be glad of that come summer. However, they do okay at keeping the wind out, so any old layering underneath works fine for me. I wouldn't expect any more at this price point.
Just like the Precip jackets, these are very breathable and weigh next to nothing. I've only worn them for two moderately rainy 30-min bike rides across the city to work, but my suit pants were dry as a bone. I keep them folded in my bike bag and they barely take up any space. I'm 5-9, 180 and the L fit fine over pants. Highly recommended, esp for the price.
took these backpacking around europe b/c it was rainy and i wanted to go snowboarding without taking up alot of room in my backpack with my regular ski pants. worked great! i was sitting on my ass in the snow for a good amount of time waiting for my friend to catch up and didn't get wet at all.
Let's first say that with any rain gear, you will not get good breathability. Next, I need to say that I've had these for about four years, and only used them maybe 10 times. However, every time I used them I was thoroughly impressed. Very waterproof and durable.
I had high hopes for these pants, but was sorely disappointed after using them for not even two weeks. I purchased them a few months ago, with the intention of having them sent out to me when the wet weather started rolling in while on a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail.
Before I crossed the OR/WA border, I had received them in the mail, prepared to face what I understood to be one of the rainiest places in the lower 48 with what I presumed were decently waterproof pants. I soon came to find, when the rains came undeterred and without abatement, that these are not actually worth the time nor money; consider other, more durable options before you settle on these.
Using them for around ten days, with rain falling everyday, these pants proved that they would, I will grant, remain preponderantly dry for a maximum of three hours. After that, though, all bets were off. They would wet out quickly after that period of time, give or take a few minutes, and would not dry again until I reached my next town stop.
I did appreciate the pockets, but I believe they serve as more of a detriment than a boon to the overall intended function of the the pants, as they are not taped and therefore serve as more a possible ingress point for falling/dripping water.
Moreover, the lining itself, by the time I decided to really examine the pants, was peeling in some spots (where there had been no zipper, button, or other object attached to my pants underneath to cause potential wear or abrasion ), and in others was completely detached from a seam, leaving a gaping hole without liner or pant shell.
All in all, save your money and analyze other options before you decide to get these. The fit was way baggy, and even with pants underneath I could never cinch them tight enough to fit the way I wanted.
I'm 5'7" and about 150 lbs. I wear size 32/30 pants so I ordered a Med/Short. The length and waist are good but oh boy, I can probably fit my entire body into one of the legs. I'm not expecting this to be regular fitting either but I can actually see myself tripping on these while on the golf course. Failed.. Returned..
Side zip is much better in full length to easily take on and off with shoes on on the trail. I didn't realize it until I tried it on with my shoes on. Side zip with half length below knees it's necessary to take shoes off to take it on or off.
