EDIT: OR - Marmot PreCip Full Zip Pants -Alex Legg
- Hello again Alex, it looks like you get me again. I am taking of for almost a full week though so let's get on this one fast. It should go well as I can see you have applied everything you learned from the first one. Good job.
First off. Email me your pictures in their raw uncropped format and I will redo them for you with Photoshop and send them back. I don't do this often for folks but want to hurry the process along to help both of us. ;-)
As you recall the edit format is
EDIT: must be changed
Edit: should be changed but will be left to your discretion
Comment: just that or something to think about
Post a corrected version in the test folder and REPOST here.
***There are two zipper handles, one on the top and one on the bottom.
Edit: these are most commonly called zipper pulls
***There is a flap at the ankle that snaps into place over the zipper allowing for a snug fit against my boots.
Comment: it also keeps the zipper from pulling apart/open while hiking
***The waist is tightened by two hook-and-loop flaps that snug up to my proportions quite well.
Comment: in the specs you said that it has a 42" waist as opposed to the 40-42" listed by Marmot. Does the hook and loop closure not allow for any adjustment?
***With the temperature around 40 F (4 C) and a wet flurry of snow quickly covering the trail and myself in sopping wet snow,
EDIT: you should drop the "of snow" as it becomes redundant. Like this:

***I read on http://marmot.com/ that it may be necessary to wash the pants often to keep the PreCip coating working properly, but I have never had any issues. I figure that the rain and snow wash it thoroughly enough.
Comment: it is actually to get out the dirt and body oils that clog the micropours of the MPB membrane. At some point it stops functioning as a breathable material, plus the DWR gets reactivated in the dryer.
***I am still a bit more careful around cactus than I would be with a thick pare of jeans
***They keep my legs dry whether I am in the rain, the snow, of just trekking
EDIT: "or" just trekking
