MarmotPreCip Pant - Women's

Hope for immaculate skies, but be ready for the fifty-year storm.

It doesn't take long for menacing clouds to turn into powerful storms that leave you soaked and cold out on the trail. The Marmot Women's PreCip Pants may not be able to hold back storms, but they keep you dry and comfortable on a rainy afternoon. These lightweight pants weigh in at just half a pound so you'll hardly notice them in your backpack if you bring them along on your day hike or backpacking trip. Or if it's pouring before you even hit the trail, don these protective pants from the get-go. The PreCip is 43% more breathable than last year, while offering solid, 10K-rated waterproof protection.

The fully taped seams keep rain drops from sneaking through the cracks, and zippered pockets protect items inside. Adjust the drawcord on the elastic waist for a secure fit. When it's time to pull the pants on or off, open up the side ankle zippers and easily slide the pants over your hiking boots, or open up the ankle zippers when you need a little extra ventilation. If you run into dense, scratchy brush that's closing in on the trail, the pants' rugged nylon ripstop fabric is up for the challenge: it's made to resist wear-and-tear so it'll get you back to camp unscathed, and keep you going through many a wet excursion.

What’s the inseam on Long in these pants?

Hey Angela! I am seeing that these are about a 34 inch inseam on these pants in a size Medium! As you go up or down a size, add or subtract half an inches (so Small is a 33.5in, a Large is a 34.5 inseam, and ect). I hope that helps! Definitely reach out to me directly if you have any other questions, I would love to help!

woman's waist is 45 and length is 27. what size should she order

Hey there Leonard!

The waist of this item only goes up to a 38.5 while it does fit a little large I don't think this will provide her enough room. She could check out the The North Face Venture 2 1/2-Zip Pant in a XL/Short inseam. I think that would be the best rain pant to try out first!



A Men's XL/Short in the Marmot Precip pants would be a good fit as they offer more room in the waist and hip! You can contact me directly for more information or hop on our livechat and talk with one of us!

Suitable for some uses

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pants are great for added warmth in dry weather or hiking in light rain or snow. I am a bike commuter and my bike currently doesn’t have a rear fender and the spray from the rear tire will seep through these pants. For the price they are pretty good overall though. I like that they have zippered pockets that are a fairly good size.

Great for any soggy adventure

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

The Marmot Precip pants have worked great for bike commuting and hiking in the rain. These fit easily over my cycling tights or a hiking baselayer bottom. The elastic waistband could be a bit more comfortable as it tends to bind in certain positions. There are elastic bands around the ankles to keep the bottom of the pants from catching while riding. These breath great while working hard, but also keep moisture out. Solid pair of pants for the price!

Raincouver

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

    Very Thin, but does a great job

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    These pants are literally just waterproof pants. They fit to size and allow me to wear a pair of leggings or thermals underneath to keep me warm. My only complaint is that they are slightly baggy in the front nether region.

    Exactly what I was looking for

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

    I did a lot of comparison shopping before purchasing these pants and I'm very happy with my purchase.
    After trying on waterproof pants from several brands, I found these were by far the best fit for me - I have a short torso/long legs and even then the waist is quite high. The Marmot precip pants aren't as baggy as some other brands, but still have good range of motion. Zippered pockets were a plus and I didn't feel like I needed the full zip legs.
    I took these pants on an 11-day trip to Iceland and put them to good use when it rained and when we visited waterfalls, just slipped them on over my leggings. Honestly, I wasn't sure I needed them, but I am so glad I had them with me! I was packing light (only two pairs of athletic leggings for bottoms), so I couldn't afford to be waiting on my pants to dry and these were definitely very packable. I also bought the Marmot PreCip jacket and I'm equally happy.
    Backcountry had the best price by far and I received my order quickly - absolutely no regrets about purchasing this product from this site.

    I tried uploading a photo, but it wouldn't submit.

    Great rain pants

    I love how rain pants are multi purpose. Blockers of rain, brush, mosquitos, wind! This pair is nice because its lightweight, unexpectedly breathable, and fits well even with another pair of pants underneath. Hard to be disappointed.

    Great rain pants

    Nice choices for lengths

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xs

    It is the only outdoor clothing brand that has different lengths. For a petite woman, it was the best choice I could find after many searches. The customer rep was most helpful and patient. But I was able to find a pair of Foot joy waterproof pants later that suit my needs better, however more expensive. So I returned this pair. I think Marmot is the best choice for women looking for different lengths. I heard from so many people complaining how long the normal water proof pants are, some people prefer to wear only ponchos for this reason.

    Scotland Approves

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

    Bought these before a trip to Scotland, and they did the job. Kept the stormy weather on the outside. They fit great over hiking leggings and they don't ride up like some other rain pants. Topped it off with the Marmot Magnus jacket.

    Nice to have a choice for short people

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xs short

    This style of pants offer a short version, which is difficult to find. But I find it too shiny and wish the backside fabric was not white. I think it does the job, but not the pants you want to wear unless have to. I found FootJoy (golf)waterproof pants which fit me better and not as baggy. It also has the black lining as well.

    Great Pants

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

    I got these for my wife as a complement to the ones I had gotten earlier. They are well fitting, but we decided to go up a size to fit over other pants with enough room to not worry about anything else.

    Good Pants

    • 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.

    Rain stopper/ Wind breaker

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

    These compactible pants are a must have for a backpacker. They are lightweight, have zipper options for easy slide on, and keep you dry! I appreciate the pockets too. They easily slide on over your boots with the zippered bottom.

    Nice

      I wear these over my softshell pants in the winter when I'm camping for extra warmth and waterproofing. They serve as a great shell for cheaper than many

      Baggy but should do the trick

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XS

      Agree with other reviewers that the style is nothing to write home about but functionally speaking, they'll serve their purpose well. I'm 5'2" and 107 lbs. I bought the XS and while they are quite baggy in the thigh section, they will fit well over my hiking pants.

      You'll stay dry just fine

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

      Yes, these pants do have a weirdly high waist. However, if you throw looking cute out the window, you can tuck your baselayer top into the pant to help keep out any moisture or snow.

      One thing about this is that the fabric is VERY slick (more so than the average rain pant), so if you are thinking of using these for any mountaineering activities such as glissading...proceed with caution because you will go quite fast.

      Summary: You'll stay dry. Bottom zippers and snaps are nice. I'm 5'5", normally wear a size 8, and the medium fit comfortably with a baselayer underneath. Good for the price point.

      Gets the job done, if unstylishly

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

      These were a great buy. Sure, they're not the most flattering fit, and the waist came up too high-- then again, I'm 5'4" and I was just pleased that these weren't too long. They were comfy with enough room for my legs not too feel suffocated.

      They Get the Job Done

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: XS

      I have only used these pants a few times, but so far I have found them comfortable and fully waterproof. I have used them hiking and sitting on the ground at camp in the rain and they have not snagged or torn. They seem to run a bit small and short.

      Practical and Lightweight

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

      The pants are not lined, so they stick to your skin if it is warmer. They are extremely lightweight and pack easily away. They fit great and the pockets are nice and deep. The pockets also have zippers so you can't lose belongings.
