- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I own two pair of these pants. They are warm, but control temperature well. They are unbelievably wear resistant. I wore the first pair for 200+ days and they are still going strong.
These pants are great. I wore them 12 days snowboarding in the PACNW this year in heavy snow, mostly from 15-35*F. I was 5'7"/175lbs when I got them and the medium fits me very well. I'm about 182 now at the end of the season and the waist is a bit tighter that I'd like, but they still fit and don't restrict my movement on the mountain.
These are simple, functional pants that do everything you want. There are only 2 pockets, but they are sized perfectly and are in a good spot: Easy to access on the lift, big enough to load with a tool, your keys, some bars, but they don't look like huge, tacked-on cargo pockets, and the bigger/heavier stuff doesn't move around and bang against my leg constantly.
The face fabric is very durable. No wetting-out, good abrasion resistance, only minimal wear on the bottoms from boots/bindings/ground.
The insulation is perfect . . . I've never been too hot or too cold, and they aren't overly thick or restrictive. I normally don't like insulated outerwear, but I like not having to wear anything between these and my base layer.
I wish they were compatible with the jacket-pants connection system that Arcteryx came out with this year, but I'm sure they'll get updated soon.

The pant stood off 2 hours of skiing in the rain.

I tried on the beta Ar pant in a large and they got perfect. Do the micons fit larger than that were I would need a medium?
I suggest a large in the Micons. The waist will be the same. The Micons are a baggier fit, so they'll be larger from the seat and thighs on down.
Hmm, I have to say, the Micon (Sabre) fits larger both in waist and girth, than the Beta AR. I'm a 32" waist and have the Micon in Med (which I love-worked great at Snowbird today) and I need a belt to keep them locked in place. I'd say if you're bigger than 33" waist go large, otherwise, med will work better. They have a pretty sweet waist adjustment on the inside waistband which can adjust the waist almost 2" for layers or guts.
Excellent resort pants
I got a size M of this item recently, and tried them on snow for the first time yesterday. In my opinion this is very good winter gear! I have used nothing but shell gear over the past years, but this insulated pant works very well. Though, I don't think I will ever go touring with them - for that they are too baggy and warm. I used them for evening skiing (-4 Celsius) with a thin wool insulation layer underneeth, and that was perfect.
About sizing: I normally use Medium sized clothing, but this "relaxed fit" pair of pants is just at the (max baggyness) limit of what I feel comfortable.
I want these pants in the orange color. ...
I want these pants in the orange color. Looks like they are out of stock everywhere on the web. Any chance you guys will get another shipment?
Scott, inventory questions seem to go unanswered for periods of time. You would have much better luck using the "Chat Now" feature or calling the toll free number and talking to a BC service rep.
