The Marmot doesn't appear to have pit zips. Personally, I think they're a must--they allow on the move temperature control. Years, no decades, ago, I had a Performance rain suit w/GoreTex. I loved it. Jacket got destroyed but I still have the pants (& use them when needed). I just bought the Burley rain jacket sold on this site. Very nice! Only thing I miss is the hood!! I called Burley & they feel it's too dangerous to ride with a hood.
Long tail very helpful, as others have stated.
Don't forget shoe covers, especially if you hate that squishy feeling/sound every time you pedal! When jacket overlaps pants, and pants overlap shoe covers, you can stay pretty rain-dry. With pit zips you can stay pretty sweat-dry, too.
