MarmotPreCip Pant - Men's

Don't let rainstorms catch you with your pants around your ankles.

Sometimes, it rains. C'est la vie. The best thing you can do is be prepared and bring the Marmot PreCip Men's Pants with you when you're wandering around in the wilderness. Weighing under nine ounces, they won't slow you down, and they won't let you get soggy, either, seeing as they're designed with Marmot's waterproof and breathable NanoPro membrane. Full seam taping will keep any rogue drops at bay, and ankle zips and snaps help you seal your cuffs down over your boots for extra-double-secret security.

Battletested

    I used these going up the Olympic Coast in December about a year and a half ago. It rained most of the time during a 5 day period and I was able to stay dry from the rain with the exception of normal sweating from hiking. Cheap and reliable and you should be able to control sweat by eliminating layers. I'm using these again in Iceland next week!

    These pants are perfect for the hiker/backpacker, commuter, outdoor worker, etc... A bombproof shell to ward off any precipitation you might encounter in the outdoors. The precip material (same as they use in their jacket) also breathes super well, so these are excellent if you are doing something active. They are lightweight and pack down nicely so you can stash them in your pack, pannier, car and are never caught with a dreaded case of wet pants!

    Living in Oregon, we know rain gear. These will quickly become one of your favorite pieces of gear and at under $100 these are a steal.

    That's funny. I just saw your comment after writing mine. I lived in WA for a few years and used these 50 miles up the Olympic coast in December....rained practically the whole time --__-- But hey, these helped a ton!

    Great pants for wet times outside!

    I recently purchased these pants, and immediately had a chance to use them during a rainy Wilderness First Aid Course. I was lying on the ground, covered in leaves, sliding down hills...all in the rain. My legs never once got wet, and the pants stayed comfortable the whole time. I would have been soaked without them, and they pack down in a pocket, so they'll be great to take backpacking.

      Bought this for my son-in-law who bikes to work a lot in the rain. He said it was lightweight, true to size, blocked out the rain, and the only downfall was that it was slightly all around baggy.

      great

      • Size Bought: sm reg sm short

      although i didn't get to use these, Im glad I had them, I wish I had gotten to use them. Quality looks good and the small reg fit me great. I have a 30 in inseam and waist. The shorts were a bit too short and i could see water just running into my shoes if it were to rain. The regulars covered the tops of my shoes.

      Good lightweight pants

        My son took these on a 7 day backpack trip. He said they pack light and came in handy on a rainy day. Great pants

        Light Packable Rain Protection

        • Size Bought: Medium

        These pants are so easy to bring along on any adventure. I got caught in a few storms throughout the world and these kept me comfortable and dry. They pack down to about the size of a small cup and are super light. I use them for my motorcycle on rainy days as well and they work amazing! I am a size 31 or 32 waist with a 32 inseam and the mediums fit me perfectly. High quality material just like you would expect from Marmot

        Great review George!

        Live in the bottom of my pack

        PreCip pants along with a light rain jacket basically live in the bottom of my pack for hiking / backpacking in variable / inclement weather. Relatively light, comfortable and quick to throw on over pants, and have worked well on keeping me dry and warm while continuing to hike.

        What is the inseam for the MED/Short size pants?

        So far, so good...

        • Size Bought: Large Short

        The PreCip pants so far have been working like a charm. Haven't been able to test in a downpour, but they held up nicely in a decent rain. Bought the Large Short and they fit great

        Performed well under pressure

        • Size Bought: Large/short

        Wore these to work and was impressed with them. Fit very well. Shed the water and seemed to breath way better than the Precip jacket. I ordered the Large /short size.

        Perfect

        I was a little nervous ordering medium/short instead of regular, but when the pants arrived, the length and fit were perfect; fit comfortably over my 31"/30" Levi's jeans. I ordered with a Minimalist jacket, but it unfortunately stopped raining in SF the day before my order arrived, so I put on the pants and jacket and stood under the shower for five minutes to test. Bone dry. Thanks Marmot and Backcountry for yet another win.

        It's very thin and tears easily

        • Size Bought: S/Reg

        I really like it a lot, it's light, blocks water, and the wind very well as advertised. However, it's very thin and tears easily. if you encounter sharp stuff be careful. I already made a hole at the bottom of the pants when I used it for the first time. I would like to patch the hole. I contacted the customer service at Marmot if there is any patch kit or something but no response from them so far

        I used an adhesive goretex patch on a jacket- still working after many years

        I'm 66KG, and 175CM, what size do I need to select?

        Great price for these pants

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit: True to size

        Bought these as a gift, here is what they had to say:

        These Marmot pants are very light weight and compress really well for backpacking. These waterproof pants zip up 12 inches to allow for ease of removing your boots. I have used these in a down pour and they kept me comfortably dry. Also, these pants are true to size.

        Buy them.

        Best gear investment I've ever made.

        I've spent the last fifteen years working professionally as an outdoor educator, backcountry horseback guide, packer, hunting guide, and park ranger. Along with all that I am a pretty serious backpacker, mountaineer, climber, horseback rider, and adventurer. These pants are easily the best piece of gear I've ever encountered. I mean I have had the same pair for going on 13 years now and they are still waterproof even after using them well over 500 times. About once a year I think that I should replace my rain pants because they just have to give out sometime! But no, every time I'm out with them and getting rained on or snowed on and I throw them on, they are still perfectly waterproof. They were worth every penny and more. Really, from someone who really works gear hard and has spent the better part of their life in the backcountry; these pants are just incredible. Buy them, you will not be disappointed. There are a lot of comments about size here and maybe Marmot has changed that over the years but I love the flexibility they give you in the way they fit. You can wear them over anything comfortably.

        Keeps you dry

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs large

        These things are pretty big. Perfect for wearing over pants. Lightweight and compact- throw them in whenever I go camping.

        Dry as a bone!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large

        These pants fit as described. I was able to put these pants on over my boots in the middle of a downpour. Packable and very light. I did not get overheated while wearing these pants but I was only walking with minimal strain. Overall, these pants would work in anyone's pack and you won't be disappointed.

        I'm 6'3'' and typically wear pants with a 33" waist and a 34" inseam. Should I go with a Mediuim Long or a Large Regular?

        Hey Joseph - I would recommend a Medium/Long based on your measurements. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
