This bib has it all!

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs large
  • Height: 6'3"
    Weight: 205 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

Just got this bib and took it out into the first storm of the year. The Waterproof breathable N80p-X Gore-Tex 3L is awesome and truly blocked wind, snow, dog slobber, everything. Has great pockets and the side zips help keep you cool when things start to heat up. Best part about these bibs is that they have a relaxed fit compared to other Arc'teryx bibs. They do run a little large so I would recommend sizing down. Overall awesome bib, suprisingly warm, plenty of pockets, and look rad!

do these fit more loosely than the stinger bib? I am 6 feet 170 and the medium stinger bib just does not fit well. length is good but it way too tight in the mid section. I think a large may be too big. I was wondering if anyone knows how these bibs fit in comparison

Hey Mike,

The Sabre features a Relaxed fit versus an Expedition fit on the Stinger. The Relaxed fit will be a little bit more roomy of a cut than the Expedition.

Unanswered Question

What is the inseam length on the XL?


Great flaw

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 175 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

Great overall with one flaw...the shoulder straps don't stay put at all. Would expect better from arc'teryx. Poor design. Other than that, impressive.


Beautiful Bibs

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times


Arc'teryx decked out the Sabre Bibs with 80 denier Gore-Tex with a low-loft fleece backer for a soft touch that provides additional warmth. The Gore-Tex that Arc'teryx uses for the Sabre bibs is the older version of the Gore-Tex Pro. Here are their exact words, "Please note that Gore-tex (Standard) is a just the re-named Gore-tex Pro-Shell. When Gore-tex came out with the new membrane for their Pro fabric, they re-named the Pro Shell to just Gore-tex and many people have begun referring to this as Standard"

One of the questions that should be asked is how come Arc'teryx didn't use Gore-Tex Pro which is a more breathable membrane? Arc'teryx's response is," The Pro does offer added breath-ability as it has a different membrane, but with the addition of the fleece like backer, the breath-ability given with the Pro would be lost and thus is not used." I don't entirely follow their logic as the lo-loft backer would reduce the breathability of either membrane, might as well put it on the most breathable to begin with! I think my answer hits the nail on the head, that the Sabre bibs were designed as a powder orientated on piste and side-country bibs. The additional price to make a low-loft backer for the Pro shell membrane would be unnecessary because the Sabre Bibs weren't designed as a high cardio output garment.

One of my pet peeves in the ski industry is the lack of insulated ski bibs. Even a little synthetic insulation in the butt makes a huge difference in the over all comfort of an on-piste bibs or pants. Considering the retail price on the Sabre bibs, I think a little insulation in the bibs would have been a nice touch.

The Sabre Bibs comes with 2 deep thigh pockets, one on each leg. These are pretty spacious pockets, allowing for a large smart phone, wallet, liner gloves, etc... On the chest portion of the bibs, there are 2 more pockets, one large horizontal zipper and a small 45 degree angled zipper. The large horizontal zipper is about a smart phone x smart phone size. The smaller 45 degree angled zipper is best used for smaller items like keys, chapstick, RFID ski pass, etc...

How it Fits:

The Sabre Bibs are cut to a "Relaxed Fit", which I found out to be extremely baggy. I'm 5'10", 160lbs, 33" waist and the Mediums were absolutely huge. I tried the smalls one and the they fit extremely well, not euro-fit snug but a very comfortable "athletic fit". I've never sized down from anything form Arc'teryx but the Sabre Bibs and pants, I had to size down. For comparison sake, I own Arc'teryx's Sawatch ski pants and the Mediums fit perfectly. If you like your pants looking like sails, then get your standard size. If you want your bibs to be practical, size down. Other than sizing down, the Sabre bibs fit extremely well. The bibs are articulated well in the legs for skinning or boot-packing and the adjustable crossback suspenders are easy to adjust and stay adjusted.


The price point may be high, but the Sabre bibs are beautifully crafted and come decked out with a plethora of features. Snow-sports enthusiasts willing to spend a little extra will find the Sabre bibs to be exceptional for on piste powder or side-country riding. Cold blooded riders unfortunately will find the low-loft backer on the bibs not sufficient enough to replace synthetic insulation.

Leg vents dump massive heat

Low-loft backer adds just the right amount of warmth for PNW environments

Pockets, pockets, and more pockets

Waterproof, windproof, and bomb Proof 80D Gore-Tex

Streamlined and Simple

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs large

This pant is tough. This pant is simple. Yet it provides the user with everything they will NEED. The N80p-X GORE-TEX® fabric is very effective at keeping you dry and comfortable even on the those coastal, wet storm days, they are also very quiet in comparison to other gore-tex pants I've used. You don't have to feel like you're tearing velcro with every step you take while sneaking in the house for that family dinner that you are late for because you were enjoying an alpenglow lit last run well into the evening.

Two small but useful pockets on the chest, good for your phone, iPod, mouthguard, or other items that you want handy. Two deep cargo pant pockets on the thighs for larger items that are sleek enough that it doesn't look like you are trying to smuggle the local squirrel populations pine cones. The pants fit loosely but aren't baggy, and cumbersome which also makes for a very optimal pant to wear a harness over when repelling. The patches of extra tough fabric around the ankles have yet to see a full breach by my edges clapping into them. Large vents on the side make for a quick cool down after a long hike. The bib straps also stay put, unlike other bibs I have owned in the past, the straps were always falling off and riding around my arm versus my shoulder.

I'm 6 feet tall and an athletic and bulky 190 lbs. I wear a Large in these bibs, other pants - the Flyblow Baker Bib, for example, I wore an XL and had a very similar fit. All in all I've found that your pants are the most important part of your outerwear, they get a lot of use and sustain a lot of wear and tear, spending money on the right stuff will pay off in the spring after 120 days of skiing when all you have to show for wear is your very obvious nasolabial folds (from smiling too much).

The best

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

As an outdoor photographer, I get into some weird spots to get the right angle for a shot. Even climbing trees in my ski gear. The Sabre bib has stayed strong throughout the season and didn't even blink an eye. Early morning tours, sunset laps, resort shredding, etc. It does it all while keeping you comfortable. The relaxed fit is perfect for layering and having a great range of movement. The massive side vents dump heat very well and the Gore-Tex material keeps the elements at bay.

My one complaint is with how they designed the suspenders in the back. The cross-over leaves a lot of extra fabric that kinda sticks out. It doesn't affect the performance of the bib or anything, it's just a funny design flaw (it's a flaw in my opinion).

This bib is great for someone who is looking for a relaxed bib that will fit well with layers, eats up the backcountry, and is even at home catching the lifts all day.


Don't go BC without em'

My man friend has only good things to say about these bibs. Had complaints of previous gear leaving him drenched with sweat after hiking all day...not anymore! Came home with a bloody knee and only a few scratches on the pants. Only complaint are the shoulder straps loosening throughout the day. He's about 6'0 175lbs and the medium fits great.


Best. Bibs. Ever.

  • Gender:Male

Extremely durable. Well-placed side vents. Tie-off adjustable straps to prevent slippage. Plenty of pockets.

Are the "tie-off" adjustable straps an update from previous versions? Ive been reading things about the straps loosening throughout the day, but the reviews are a bit old, was wondering if Arcteryx has addressed the problem.

i just tie a knot around the adjustment buckle with the excess strap. works like a charm.


Love These

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs large

I love how lightweight these are and how easy they are to put on. I'm 6'0 and 155lbs. A medium fits, but was a little bulky for my preference. The small fit great, with plenty of room, but just a slightly slimmer fit.


Bomb proof

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

Really functional pair of bibs - straps could have been better designed to stay up more.


Good fit, bad straps.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

The good:

The relaxed fit was very comfortable.

The material was durable.

At 6' 2" 210lbs the large fit perfectly.

The bad:

The shoulder strap system is inadequate to support the weight of the bibs throughout the day. They droop and require readjustment or you end up walking on them.

No full length pant zips.

Cuffs are a little baggy when booting.


Good Fit

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

Perfection. If you're skiing nothing but pow, this is the only piece to own. just awesome.



  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I took a fall or two and slid some distance on ice this season. I was unhappy to find out this produced a small tear in my bibs on the left knee. The fabric around the right knee also appears scratched and looks weakened. For the price of this bib I found this very disappointing.

The adjustment on the suspenders is really very poor. They don't stay in place at all. As a result, the pants go too low to the ground, so my insteps are torn up despite the material there. I wore a medium and I normally wear 30" inseams.

Otherwise the bibs are really great.


Great Bibs

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I have about 20-25 days on snow with these bibs in orange this year. So far, they are the best bibs I have ever owned. They're lightweight, easy to get on and off, have a great range of motion and look great. I found the XL's to be a little big for me so I went down a size. I am 6'0'' and 210. The large leg zips are great for dumping heat on the way up the hill. Kevlar insteps are bulletproof.

Arc'teryx really got it right with these bibs.


Love them, but they ain't perfect

    These are by far my favorite pants/bibs that I have ever skied in. The materials used are the best out there. The fit is good. the larges are large, and fit my legs and backside well, but have me swimming in the chest and waist area, but I prefer a baggy fit much more than my mom's old school style of ski pants. There are a few features taht I would like to see on these bibs: 1) The suspender straps need a better slide adjuster on them that actually stays in place. The store area for excess suspender strap is great, but the clasp.slider needs to hold better, while maintaining its ease of adjust-ability. 2) I would love it if there were a way to fold down zip down the bib front while touring. They can get warm. Other options from Arc'teryx offer a middle zip down (see Alph SV bib, Stinger bib, or Theta bib), but I wouldlove a U-shaped fold down that allows me to flip the whole front bib section of these open while keeping the suspenders in place. Other than those suggestions, these are my favs. Bomber material that breathes and isn't heavy. Styled well. Keprotec cuff on the inside of ankle is rad and durable.
