Durable and lightweight, the waterproof/breathable Marmot Minimalist Pant utilizes GORE-TEX Paclite fabric to offer full weather protection and reliable performance in any season.
Constructed with GORE-TEX Paclite fabric, the Marmot men’s Minimalist pants offer durable, reliable weather protection. Let’s take a closer look at their features.
So, as I said, these are constructed with GORE-TEX’s Paclite fabric. It is a nice, lightweight, durable, highly breathable, waterproof fabric. So GORE-TEX is guaranteed to keep you dry and they do a really good job at maintaining that durability and weather protection while keeping these pants just a mere 10.3 ounces. So nice fabric, nice material, overall very durable. They have also got a DWR finish on them to help shed that moisture, so addition to that really nice waterproof fabric.
The other features on these pants include an elastic waist belt with a snap closure. So it has got some nice stretch there. There is a good fit no matter where you lie. You know, if you are in between sizes these pants will work with you to fit correctly. And they are not too constricting either because of that elasticity. There are two zippered pockets on either side and they have got nice welded zippers. Down the leg at the bottom there are two zippers, one on either side to allow easy on or easy off if you are wearing boots or shoes. And also at the bottom there is a snap closure, so you can close up those zippers and protect those from any potential water as well.
At the very bottom around the cuff of the leg there is actually a draw string. So you can actually cinch those down around a shoe to further protect your shoes or your feet from any foul weather, so really nice features to the Minimalist pant.
The fit of these pants is standard. They will fit well over a lightweight pair of hiking pants or a base layer. They do have articulated knees. So that will allow easy movement if you are going up a big climb or hike, really nice movement in the pants. They pack down very small, too. As the name suggests, they are a minimalist pant. So they will pack down nice and small with that GORE-TEX fabric, so you can stuff them away when you don’t need them, so nice features there as well.
So there you have it. For light weight and durable weather protection, the Marmot men’s Minimalist pants.
