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.

Feature list from Marmot:


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.
You live in the mountains, and sometimes a torrential downpour rolls in. The Marmot Men’s PreCip Pant provides high quality, waterproof-and-breathable rain protection without breaking the bank. Fully taped seams back up the waterproof-and-breathable PreCip shell that keeps you comfortably dry. Marmot added 2 zip hand pockets and one rear zip so you can easily reach for some snacks or your utility knife without have to dig around in your bag.

Appalachain Outdoors
The PreCip™ Pants from Marmot sets the standard for lightweight rain protection. Fully waterproof, the PreCip Pants are easy to put on over boots thanks to the ankle side zips.
If the Wicked Witch of the West had a pair of Marmot’s PreCip Pants the story might have ended a bit differently. That bucket of water would have shed right off the fully-taped seams and Marmot’s waterproof/breathable PreCip coating. Luckily for children and hikers everywhere, Dorothy’s nemesis didn’t know the elastic waist and zippered and snap-cuffed bottoms would have provided her with lightweight protection she could stash in a backpack or cauldron and pull on anytime a Kansas farm girl, or a rain storm, showed up threatening a drenching.

Sierra Trading Post
Made using the most lightweight, compressible and waterproof breathable fabric around and featuring full-length side zippers, Marmot's PreCip pants are a perfect fit for hikers and backpackers.

Positive Reviews:

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.

Nathaniel Satcher at on 01/15/2013

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.

Wayne Christoffersen at on 01/12/2014

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

Alexander S at on 05/26/2013

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.

Tried and True

These are the pants that go with me when I don't know what I'm getting into. Whether it's unpredictable weather conditions or an undetermined length of time, I know that they will get me through the worst of times. They were with me during the Subaru Primal Quest 10-day adventure race in the Pacific Northwest and are still with me today, looking not much different than the day I bought them.
Jim Dirt at Rock/Creek Outfitters on 01/01/2010

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.

Brian P at on 12/04/2013

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.

bidnyy at on 01/09/2012

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.

Negative Reviews:

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.

James Howard at on 10/05/2013

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..

Size matters

Sizing is a difficult problem for me. I hava a 31 in. waist so I tend to fall between a small and medium. Considering these rain pants would be worn over either shorts or pants and it had a draw string waist I opted for a medium regular. but a regular was too long and the medium short at 29 inches would be too short; so I returned the pants. For me this is one of those situations where you have to try on the item for an accurate fit. Based on price and quality I'd recoomend them, but with the above caveat.
Cautious Shopper at Rock/Creek Outfitters on 02/02/2013

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.
