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. The Minimalist Pant's rugged construction and set of features make it work well on the trail or on alpine climbs.

Likes: Fantastic quality. They fit loosely and feel smooth so you hardly know you're wearing them, but somehow keep you warm at the same time.
Dislikes: Too long in the legs, but then again, I'm a short guy.
Likes: These pants kept me dry and warm hiking the presidential range in NH in June 2013, with 50-70 mph winds (highest recorded gust was 84 mph), with horizontal rain and blowing fog, and temperatures in the 30s
Likes: Lightweight, packs really small and works well.
Dislikes: Wish the zipper at the bottom of the legs was longer to allow for larger boots to fit through.
Likes: Great for the wet weather. Packs away really compact. Fits over pants very well.
Dislikes: No problems.
