Sizing notes

TALL: Some pants, shirts, jackets and parkas are available in tall sizes, which generally means an inseam that is 3 inches longer and a rise that is 1 inch longer, a shirt or jacket body that is 2 inches longer, a parka body that is 2.5 inches longer and sleeves that are 2.5 inches longer than regular sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants Took these pants up kilimanjaro. The full-zip is a must. Waterproofing performed well and they provided great wind protection. The sizing of these is a bit weird. I'm 6'2", thin, but with long legs and a big butt. I opted for the Large and they fit well, but a little tight in the crotch and loose around the waist. The XL allowed more movement in the crotch and legs, but was too loose around the waist. The one drawback here is there is no drawstring in the waist. This needs to be addressed. Other than that, I love this and would recommend. Price cannot be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finest kind for the dollar... These are great; I cinch the pant leg up on them to ride the bike; and they stay in the pack in case I get a seasonal weather snap.  Roll up into the bag that comes with them; about 3" x 6".  No complaints.  I could go on about stuff that they could use better ( no, they are not laminated three layer Gore-tex; and they are not $250 either, duh ), but if I really wanted to make them better for biking; I'd have a tailor sew some velcro on them; then I would not need to cinch the right leg for biking.   All things considered; a great pant at a wonderful price point.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Rain Pant - Velcro Waist Not Good I took a pair of these pants with me to Iceland for a photography trip. They are exceptional at keeping out the water and wind. What I did not like is the waist adjustment is performed with velcro tabs. Two issues; one, the velcro is not strong enough to hold the waste tight; two, the velcro scratched the skin off the top of my hand from reaching into my inside pocket. After three days I had a pretty good sore going on the top of my right hand. When I returned I exchanged them for a pair of Outdoor Research rain pants (at nearly double the cost) that had a proper mechanism for cinching the waist and zero velcro on the garment. Just a quick note to clothing manufacturers. Velcro is a wonderful invention but it is not really a proper fastening mechanism for true outdoor gear. In fact, it makes you product look cheap. I have always had a wonderful experience with Marmot products and did not notice the velcro when I purchased, I was going on brand loyalty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous, light weight rain pants. These are my commuter pants and they do the job well. I got the medium and the length is perfect. Fit is great, and that is a must as the tops of your shoes or boots MUST be covered snugly to keep splashes out. I recommend that you try them on carefully. Zips, snaps on the bottom are also a must. The Velcro waist band is not that adjustable so again, make sure the fit is good. Warmth is reasonable, in cool weather don't feel like I was getting to warm. Reduced my top layers to accommodate the addition warmth of pants over pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full-featured at a decent price point I’ve had the PreCip pants for over a year now and have used them fairly extensively, including long exposure to high precipitation. Overall, I think they’re pretty solid rain pants. Here are my observations: First (most importantly), they really are waterproof. Although I’d expect the textiles/coatings to be exactly the same as the PreCip jacket, I’ve found that the pants far exceed the performance of the jacket. The pants do wet out (similar to the jacket), but the inner coating does a much better job at keeping the water off the wearer. The longest I’d been exposed to constant moderate to heavy precipitation while wearing the pants was for a period of approximately 3 hours. After which I noticed a slight wetness above the knees and at the ankles. The ankles may have very well been from splashing (I wasn’t wearing gaiters), and above the knees was likely due to the fabric being pulled taught as I was taking large steps while climbing, which I feel is understandable as such conditions could even make water penetrate GoreTex. Second, the pants are very well featured at their price point. The full zips are a must for rain pants, and if you unzip them from the ankles up to the waist you can fit a rather large sized boot through. Pockets are great to have as well; haven’t noticed any water penetration there. Lastly, price. In my opinion, the pants are priced fairly and I believe what you get is a pretty competitive. The main consideration would be whether or not you want to step it up to GoreTex or eVent membrane pants, which for the most part are roughly twice the cost. In my opinion, unless you have specific need for those pants, the PreCips will do just fine. As far as cons go: The pants can get a little clammy, as breathability is not super great on any PreCip product. However, that is much more manageable with the pants. Also, it would be nice if they packed down a little smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain pant, bonus for having "long" sizes! I decided to upgrade my rain pants before a recent trip to Iceland (where it seems to rain every day). The PreCip was a great choice. The full zip is super handy. I could unzip the bottoms a bit to quickly get the pants on or off over my hiking shoes, and I could unzip a bit near the top if it wasn't raining hard and I wanted some extra ventilation. They kept me dry, and they're good in terms of weight and breathability. Being tall (6'3"), I especially loved that these come in "long" sizes. Normal rain pants always left a bit of my lower leg exposed, but these covered my nicely right down to my shoes. I'd definitely recommend these pants to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light, flexible, breathable I used them 3 days in the mountains doing backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering. I needed some winter over pants to be light and flexible (some become rigid in low temperatures), suitable for high paced activities. These pants are exactly what I was looking for. Though making some effort in snow, I did not notice any trace of condensed sweat on the inner side. One thing I did not like: I bought size S, I am slim but not skinny, yet the waist is too large and cannot be adjusted. They tend to slip down. Maybe I will use another pair on rugged terrain (sharp rocks or ice), as these are really thin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marmot side zip pants I am a car hauler working in all kinds of weather kneeling down, leaning against wet cars and trucks in the rain loading and unloading and securing my load all out in the rain. These pants keep me dry and when the rain stops I can take them off without removing my workboots because of the side zippers. These pants breath very well too and that's important when you are working hard because your sweat would soak you down in ordinary (non-breathable) rain gear. As far as how long they will last I've only used them for two months but no signs of wear so far. They are also quick to dry so you can stow them away soon after use. I also bought the jacket and cuddos on it too. I bought the tall sizes on both. The tall sizes have limited colors, I would like to have gotten a bright color with reflective stripes but i'll still give it 5 stars for everything else. I got the large tall and the fit is perfect. I'm 6' 3" and about 210 pounds.

You description of these pants stated it was elastic waistband with drawstring adjustment, but the only review of the product states his pants did not have a drawstring. Has the product been updated or is the description incorrect?

The Precip Rain Pants unfortuantely do not have a drawstring. We will update the information on REI.com as soon as possible.
