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
- nice GORE-TEX pant
Likes: stylish, lightweight
- Pants kept me dry, but durability was an issue
Likes: I bought these pants and immediately took them on a 10 day trip in the Alaska backcountry. It was fairly cold and windy, and we experienced six consecutive days of rain (with lots of clouds/fog the rest of the time). The pants kept me plenty dry and I wore them every day. I wore them in camp every night as well for warmth and they were great to have. The medium size weighs in at 10.7 oz on my scale, which I didn't think was terrible for full goretex pants.
Dislikes: Unfortunately the pants did not hold up to hiking in them every day and I had to send them back. The cuffs on both legs tore substantially. If I were to buy these pants again, I would try to wear gaiters on the outside of them for protection (I was wearing gaiters underneath, which was a mistake). In addition, the pants offer very little in the way of ventilation and I was quite hot while moving.
- Fine quiet fabric
Likes: Quiet fabric, light weight.
Dislikes: Unfortunately I am too heavy for the XL at 5'10" and 270. I wish it had a drawstring.
- 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.
