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 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 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 3 out of 5 by from Hiked Mountains, Commuted by Bike year-round Spent the extra dollar to get these pants for the full-zip... ...Ended up with the best pair of weatherproof pants I've worn to date. I gave them a three as I wanted them to be more durable. I"ve used them to hike fourteener's and commute by bicycle in the rain and snow; perhaps now I'll just study squirrels? Nothing left to do after figuring out what pants to wear to keep out the elements...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but poor sizing They are well made and feel ok. The problem is the sizing. I don't know what's wrong but as I'm athletic fit I can't find the right size of any of Marmot's pants. When they are ok in waist they are too small in my thighs and the other way. Seriously it looks like they are made for people with big bellies. Either make the sizing better or provide posibility of using a belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain pants! We bought these for my 13 year old son who just completed a 10 day trail hike at Philmont scout ranch in New Mexico. He said the pants were amazing and kept him dry during very heavy rains. The full zip on the side of the leg was a necessity for changing on the trail in a hurry. He was so happy to have these for his trip!

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!

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.
