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.
Made from super-lightweight, packable GORE-TEX Paclite fabric, the Minimalist Pant has excellent waterproof/breathable properties and weighs a mere 10.3 ounces! This year-round shell is 100% seam-taped and sheds rain, sleet and snow without a problem. The Minimalist Pant's lightweight fabrication and simplified design take up a "minimal" amount of space in your pack while offering excellent protection when the weather gets rough. The phrase "less is more" rings true with the Minimalist Pant.
Other features of the Minimalist Pant include two zippered hand pockets, ankle zippers and an elastic waist with snap closure and fly. The Minimalist Pant offers a standard cut fit with articulated knees for freedom of movement while climbing uphill or when worn over other layers.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great pants
Likes: Goretex pants, very lightweight and packable, but the fit is definitely on the small side.
Dislikes: Pants fit on the small side. I was tempted to return them for a larger size but will keep them for one of my sons, or a slimmer me.
- Excellent Pants.
Likes: Very lightweight and feels great. The materials feels durable and is waterproof. I really like the elastic waistband.
Dislikes: Not as many features or pockets but that’s what you sacrifice or the weight.
- Excellent Pant
Likes: Waterproof, Warming, Lightweight
- Excellent light weight rain pant.
Likes: Great fit, light weight and guaranteed GORE-TEX waterproof. These are in my pack year round and keep me dry in rain or snow.
- Worked like a charm
Likes: Great for both rain AND wind protection
Easily accessible pockets
- Great Goretex Pants
Likes: Waterproof and very breathable. These pants are quite comfortable, and the pockets are waterproof. Zippers on the bottom of the legs are very useful for putting on without having to take off shoes or hiking boots.
Dislikes: Pants make a crinkling noise when you walk.
Pants get tight on my thighs when I put things in the pockets.
If you quite warm while the shell is cold, condensation can form on the inside of the lining.
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.
