UOG TOP PICK - Marmot's Precip Eco Full Zip Pants - Our lightest full zipped, fully featured overtrouser - We've singled out Marmot's Precip Eco Full Zip Pant as one of our top recommendations because it offers a boat load of features including a full length zip, for a low weight and with a low price tag to match. Good waterproofing and strong breathability combined with quick and easy access over layers and boots, make these ideal for throwing on in a storm. They even come in a choice of leg lengths, no surprise why it's one of our most popular selling overtrousers.

Marmot's Pre-Cip Eco Full Zip Pants are an updated classic, packed with useful features and backed by an impressive fabric performance. It uses Marmots own in house waterproof fabric which offers very high breathability and a durable recycled nylon face fabric that will last even longer than before.

Marmot says

Meet the environmentally conscious and high-performing next generation of waterproofing: the lightweight PreCip Eco Full Zip Pant. The waterproof/breathable, PFC-free Marmot NanoPro™recycled nylon face fabric lasts longer, thanks to the advanced technology of 100% PFC-Free Entrant HSDT microporous coating. Sturdier and more durable and with a patented dry-touch finish, these water-repelling pants will keep you comfortable and protected during planned treks in stormy weather and as a just-in-case piece in your pack for unexpected downpours.

These water-repelling pants also feature fully taped seams to prevent leaks, full-length side zippers to allow quick and easy layering, and bonded storm flaps over the zippers to keep moisture out. Zippered hand pockets and a zippered back pocket provide quick storage while the elastic waist gives you a secure yet comfortable fit.

Our Verdict

Marmot's Pre-Cip pants are now made with a recycled nylon face fabric which is obviously better for the environment, but it also makes it more durable than is was before, while still keeping it's good waterproofing and breathability rating. Feature-wise they are also good, with a rear zipped pocket and two front hand pockets all lined with mesh.

The full length zips will unzip from the waistband or the ankle for maximum flexibility and are protected by a storm flap which has a press stud closure at the ankle and velcro at the waistband. The pockets have flaps but I can see there's potential for the front zips to get damp during prolonged rain which could be a weakness in these pants. Having said that most overtrousers don't offer pockets at all - so if that annoys you - then the Pre-Cip pants could be the answer.

The price is pretty good for this level of performance.
