Pants perform perfectly and allow good movement. Very thin but so far have held up to some serious cross country mashing and a few long glissades.

Marmot's Essence Pant features: Superlight Denier NanoPro MemBrain fabric that is the key to its lightweight performance and durability. These rain pants are well under a pound so they can pack like a t-shirt!


Marmot Men's Essence Waterproof Pants - No matter what Mother Nature throws at you, you'll be ready to hit the trail in the Men's Essence Waterproof Pants by Marmot. These lightweight pants are made of 100% ripstop nylon with Marmot's own NanoPro Membrane. NanoPro utilizes a microporous technology that has a pore structure that is 30% smaller than previous generations. These very small, very densely packed pores allow for enhanced breathability while maintaining excellent waterproofness. This pore structure is also air permeable allowing for dynamic air exchange. This air permeability combined with the enhanced breathability creates a fabric that is incredibly comfortable through a wide range of activities. With 100% taped seams and an elastic waist with a draw cord, you'll stay dry on your hike. Articulated knees ensure the pants won't infere with your movement and ankle zippers are included to make it easy to pull on over boots if the weather changes. The Essence Pants are finished off with a zippered back pocket so any essentials stay put. The Marmot Men's Essence Waterproof Pants are designed to handle a variety of weather conditions while maximizing performance!
