From the heart-thumping prospect of fresh lines as you wait for first chair to the unbearably delicious nachos at the mid-mountain lodge, the Arc'teryx Women's Ravenna Pant is designed to endure all of the highs and lows experienced when playing around in the snow. And while the Ravenna may be a resort-specific pant, it offers the same infamous weatherproof protection that Arc'teryx is known for.
Boasting a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex construction the Ravenna offers relentless safeguard from snow and slush alike, while the 4-way stretch and gusseted crotch assure unrestricted mobility. The flannel backer provides a soft next-to-skin feel when you have to leave the baselayers at home, and the slim fit offers a sleek, stylish look—even when you're feeling less than glamorous after a few-too-many falls on a tough run. Not to mention, the Cordura PowderCuffs and Keprotec instep patches offer added protection from sharp ski edges and wayward snow alike. The mesh-lined PowderGuard vents ensure on-the-go ventilation should the mercury start to rise, and the zippered hand pockets keep necessities, like a hanky or a small tube of sunscreen, close at hand.

Great gore-tex shell pants
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 2
I bought these pants for a last minute skinning trip in the spring when the weather was warm and sunny. Last minute purchases often don't end well but this one turned out amazing.
Without long underwear underneath, the pants are comfortable and do a great job of blocking wind. With long underwear, you can wear them even on the coldest of days. They do have vents on the side of the legs for ventilation when you're working hard.
These are definitely trim fit. They aren't tight at all and have a give in the fabric so they don't restrict movement. I'd call them "fitted." And compared to many Arcteryx pants, these really do fit well. I typically don't buy Arcteryx because of the fit. I find them generally pretty baggy and shapeless. These aren't at all. In fact, most of my friends are shocked to learn that they are Arcteryx given how they fit.
They also have waist adjusting tabs on the inside which help make sure the waist fits perfectly. They are high enough on the waist that you won't get snow in them if you wipe out but not so high as to be uncomfortable.
I have them in the Pink Tulip color which is bright but not fluorescent. Kind of a pink/red color. Shows up great in pictures and is just a fun color to wear.
