Thank you for your feedback.
Medium fits my 31" waist perfectly and the length is great for my 5'11" height.
I haven't really tested in a true downpour.Also I am a little concerned about the zippers holding up.
Good fit, Great price and Durable.

Marmot's PreCip Material
PreCip is Marmot's lightest, most compressible, waterproof, and breathable rainwear, with moisture-wicking fabric and optimal venting to keep you dry from the inside out. The new PreCip coating has been improved for greater waterproof breathability, and the Marmot line of PreCip clothing has been outfitted with articulated designs and cleverly-placed pockets for optimal comfort and convenience.

The key to this fabric is its updated barrier technology, a microporous polyurethane impregnated with silicon dioxide particles. This barrier creates small, numerous, consistent holes that allow small water vapor molecules to escape while blocking larger liquid particles. This keeps rain out while allows perspiration to work its way outside the garment, away from your body. When the weather turns fair, PreCip garments are compressible enough to be stuffed into a standard wide-mouth water bottle, and come in a variety of colors and styles for multiple applications.

Lifetime Warranty
Marmot products include a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

About Marmot
In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska on the Juneau ice fields for a Glaciology school project. This was where the idea of Marmot, originally a collegiate climbing club, began. Reynolds and Huntley soon began making prototypes of down products such as vests and sleeping bags in their dorm room in Santa Cruz. By the spring of 1973, Reynolds and Huntley partnered with fellow climber Tom Boyce to open a modest rental and retail location, named Marmot Mountain Works, in a 100-year-old building in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Their first large order was for 108, as the producer called them, "very puffy jackets" for the movie The Eiger Sanction, with Clint Eastwood, which helped make down outerwear fashionable. In 1976, Marmot was one of the first companies to recognize the value of a new technology being developed by W.L. Gore & Associates. Marmot was soon producing waterproof Gore-Tex sleeping bags, with Reynolds and Huntley testing early prototypes by sleeping in meat lockers and under fire sprinklers, and later introduced the waterproof/breathable fabric into nearly all Marmot products.

From humble beginnings, Marmot and its product line have grown over the years, and today the company is headquartered in Rohnert Park, California, with offices all over the world and distribution in more than 60 countries.

Purchased both a large and a medium, since I wasn't sure which would fit better. I'm 5' 11" tall, 167 pounds with a 34" waist and 32" inseam. Based on the Marmot sizing chart I expected the large to fit the best over pants. While the large fit fine (especially length-wise), I felt that there was too much fabric up top around my waist area. Even with a pair of pants on underneath, I could still pull the elastic waist out several inches. I just felt puffy wearing them.

Once I tried on the medium, I felt that they fit better. The length was the same, but the amount of room up top fit just right with not much to spare. Pulling on the elastic waist gives me about 1.5 inches of room, which is just enough. Even with a healthy butt, there is still flexibility in movement. I kept the medium and sent the large back. Whether you choose a medium or large depends on how baggy you prefer your pants.

The PreCip pants function as expected. They are indeed waterproof, seam-sealed, and breathable. They are lightweight, weighing in at about 9 oz (255 g). The zippered front pockets have mesh pouches inside. Unfortunately they don't allow any pass-through to pant pockets underneath, but that could be remedied easily with a pair of scissors. These are not the full-zip PreCip pants; the zippered cuff extends about 12 inches up the leg. The cuffs are secured with a snap.

My only grip with the pants is that they are loud. Prepare to make a lot of swish-swish noises as you walk around.

100% waterproof and fit very nicely over khaki pants or can wear them on their own. Adjustable cuffs mean they will have a tight fit over any shoe or boot and wont drag on the ground. Medium fits my 31" waist perfectly and the length is great for my 5'11" height. Non-insulated so great for the warm weather.

These are some really tough pants. I was wearing them as wind pants on a canoe trip a while back and we were experienceing horrible winds and had to camp on an unknown island. Little did we know in was covered in thorns! I won't say these pants are brand new anymore, but they still keep the rain out!

These pants have a strange cut. It appears to be a common problem with waterproof pants. With this particular pair they have zero room for your butt. I am a standard "no butt" kinda guy, but even my butt was too big for these pants. They had tons of room in the front for a low belly that I don't have- wonder if there are very many people with even less ass than me and a big low belly? I'm not sure I understand the need to an elastic waist like this unless Marmot simply couldn't figure out how to construct a properly fitting pair of pants. I bought these pants partially because the picture looks like the pants are shaped well. I'd say this is pretty misleading.

Quality looks fine.

Great pants - I maybe unfairly took a star off because as is, they will not work for biking, as the cuff is too large. It requires binding to keep it out of the chain. Again, since they are not billed specifically as biking pants, it is maybe unfair to hold this against it. I can say that they are waterproof and breath pretty well. After a winter bike ride, they are a bit damp, trapping moisture somewhat. I have used worse. I wear pants with a 29" waist and 31" inseam, and the small size fits me perfectly, even over a thin base layer.

I like to ride my bike in all weather, even rain and snow, and these are great at keeping me dry. The only thing that annoys me is the sound they make when I walk in them.

Keeps you dry. Doesn't have great ventilation but does the job. Zipper pockets are nice to make sure electronic items and your wallet don't get wet.

I really like the pants the quality is great and they seem to deliver what Marmot promises. My issue was the that the pants run on the larger side. Maybe they are meant for multi-layers, but I would be wearing mine with a pair of jeans and an under layer at the most. I found them to be way to baggy even though I picked the size that would fit me according to the sizing chart on the Marmot web-site.
