Marmot's Essence pants achieve very low weight and the Nano Pro Membrain fabric offers very high breathability.
Pair this waterproof wonder with our Essence Jacket and revel in head-to-toe, bone-dry protection that weighs in at well under a pound. Super breathable and protective NanoPro MemBrain fabric is the key to its lightweight performance and durability, and Marmot’s thirty-five-plus years as the premier outdoor outfitter shows in every stitch of this over-achieving rainwear. Ultra lightweight with incredible stretch performance.
The pinnacle of 2.5 layer lamination technology Marmot NanoPro Membrain™ is our most comfortable waterproof/breathable technology ever. NanoPro's™ superior microporous structure is dynamically air permeable, allowing for air exchange to help shed excess moisture vapor without compromising the waterproofness or windproofness of the garment.
We like the slight stretch in the Nanopro fabric used in Marmot's Essence Pants it makes them easier to get on and more comfortable to move in. This fabric is tried and tested and comes out with great results for waterproofness and breathability.
The rear zip pocket is positioned to one side of the pants, it's a good size and will actually be useful to you.
