Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised! Not "rip stop" I bought these specifically because these were advertised as a more durable waterproof layer than most rain shells. The fabric is listed as "Rip Stop Nylon" which should be changed because they ripped on the first day of use while glissading on snow. I subsequently got more rips on them in the following days. They are actually less resistant to tears/rips/abrasion than my lighter weight rain shells I already owned. I would not recommend these for anything other than 3-season hiking. And even then, there are more packable options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thankful for these easy to use grab and go pants I keep these in my day pack I keep in my car, they are kind of "just in case" pants. You know for random hikes, walking the dog in Oregon's incessant rain, CERT callouts, impromptu trips to Mt. Hood, getting stuck in the rain, whatever. I expected them to just sit there and be used really rarely. With these they are not the case. Honestly I went in to purchase a rain/snow pant with the expectation to purchase something cheap ($40). The good folks at REI asked me what I was doing with them and suggested these.....and I'm glad they did. Selling points: You can move the zippers up/down in order to easily step in/out of the pants without having to take off heavy boots. Compact, easy to roll up and stuff. I've used these in pouring rain, 40 mph wind and snow in temps from 65 to 16. I've worn them over long underwear and/or Carhartt's and they are just what the doctor ordered. I believe the reason these are so used is because they work so well with the activities I use them for. I throw them on for all kinds of things. Good gear removes the barriers to getting outside. Thanks REI, Thanks Marmot!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't say up when they are heavy from being wet. This is my second pair. The other ones had enough Velcro to keep the waist snug. These have smaller Velcro tabs which do not allow any adjustment. The alternative would be to make the elastic in the waist stronger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Shell Layer These did a great job of keeping me dry at the Tamanawas Falls and in the snow at Crater Lake. Had some slippage issues when putting stuff in the pockets but otherwise no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for its weight! Used for hours in heavy winds, rain, and salty waves breaking off the bow of the boat during a rigatta. Provides great light weight protection. Some light moisture eventually came through under the extreme conditions over time but for its light weight, single layer, and affordable price I feel it did its job . Great addition to the "light" gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, packs easy We were told that we needed some lightweight rain pants for a trip down the Colorado River. The river can be cold, the rapids really douse you -and the heat dries you (and the pants) quickly. I'm 5'4" and the short size fit fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good water resistant pants. I used it once so far and my impression of the product is good. I didn't notice any water seepage when I sat on snow for a few minutes while resting. I like how it is light-weight which make it more portable to carry in my day pack for those just-in-case moments. I like how it is offered in different inseam sizes for people with leg height. I bought a pant with a 30 inch inseam because that was the closest to my inseam of 29 inch which is slightly longer than I would like. I hope the manufacture would offer even more length options for future products. I would have also like to have some sort of built-in belt in order to ensure a tighter fit around the waistline. I was able to adjust the side velcro which helps a little bit with the fitting but would have still prefer some sort of built-in belt. I also liked being able to easily put this pants quickly without having to remove my shoes first. Overall I think it is a well built product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like them First I bought the REI Full Zip Talusphere(small), but I had to return them because I felt so uncomfortable when I tried them on at home. I was hoping to exchange for a medium at the store but they didn't have them so I exchanged for the Marmot Full Zip(small) instead. I hiked the last 100 K of the Camino trail with my sister last week, and I was very happy with the pants. 1, the waist is full elastic so it is more flexible than the REI Talusphere. The pants was very comfortable. 2, the Velcro on both side of the waist are larger than the REI's. It was easier to keep the opening together even the legs were fully unzip. 3. I am glad that I bought the full zip pants. During the 5 day hike, I put them up in the morning and I kept them on all day since the rain there was so unpredictable. When there was no rain or wind, I just unzip the leg zippers to keep the air flow. 4. They were a little cheaper than the REI's too at the time of my purchased.

I need rain pants to put over my regular slacks or jeans for when I bike to work on a rainy day. Do I need to order a bigger size than my regular size?

Asked by: Avalanche Al
Generally it would be a good idea to go up a size. There will be less chance of binding at the knees and butt.

Can you confirm that this product is Full zip with inseam 30"? Marmot website has a 30" Precip pants BUT it is only shown with ankle side zips (not full zips). Marmot website has full zip but only listed with inseams 32" and 34".

Asked by: Jw0612
According to the casemark number for the pant we stock, it is indeed a full zip side, short inseam.
