Description

Relaxed style and the guaranteed waterproof breathable protection of Gore-Tex fabric.

You might like to wear your dad's tighty neon ski pant once in a while, but we know for a fact that the Men's Sabre Pant will be your go-to most days. The waterproof breathable Gore-Tex fabric is guaranteed to keep you dry, and the relaxed fit means you can sit down on the lift without worrying about busting seams. Side vents let air flow in and out of this pant so you stay cool during hot hikes, and the flannel backer that lines the inside of the legs means more warmth when you're on a cold lift chair.

  • Gore-Tex waterproof breathable fabric uses a three-layer construction in order to block moisture and precipitation from the outside but also allow vapor and moisture underneath (inside your pants) to escape outward through the pores in the fabric
  • Soft shell fabric feels smoother than your typical hard shell fabric
  • Side vents open wide so you can ventilate hot air from within in order to cool down
  • Slide 'n Loc snaps join your pants to your Arc'teryx jacket to create a system that keeps snow from sneaking through at your waist
  • Keprotec insteps guard against abrasion at the bottom of the pant legs
  • RECCO reflector aids emergency location when you need to be found by a RECCO-equipped rescue team
  • Powder cuffs stretch over the top of your boots and seal out snow on particularly deep days

A bit big

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

I have these in the tall version, size MT. I am 6ft 185, with longer legs. This pant runs fairly big, I am a 32 waist and could probably get away with the S. They are also baggy, but the quality of these pants seems top notch. This is one of my go to resort pants, however, I wouldn't tour in them - just too much material.

As a side note, I am less than pleased with Arcteryx customer service. I was forced to purchase through their website because BC.com doesn't offer these in longer sizes. I wrote them to inquire about a refund / exchange as I was outside of the 30 day window and had only worn 1 time and I didn't hear back for almost 4 weeks. When they did reach back out, I got a canned response basically restating their return policy, which I was already aware of. I thought for spending $500 on a pair of pants they would be more accommodating / offer more options. Maybe try a different style? If I have learned anything in the outdoor industry, it is that customer service is #1. In this case, Arcteryx dropped the ball and I will honestly not purchase any more of their gear because of it. There are plenty of other brands that care about their customers. This is why I purchase everything through BC.com, they have the absolute best customer service and offer an awesome return policy.

Those Canadians....

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

What can I say, except this is a classic Arcteryx piece of gear. Durable, super well thought out, technical superior, and bomber to have with you in the snow and cold. Keep in mind that these are on the baggy side compared to their other pants. I like this since it makes them super comfortable and keeps options open for layering, but if I was doing something super technical like ski mountaineering I would maybe want something a tad more slim fitting.

If you want a hard working pair of pants that are super comfortable, look great and have amazing craftsmanship, look at these.

so far so good.

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

arcteryx quality. great fit and construction. I use these primarily for touring in addition to a pair of softshell touring pants that I own. I bust these out for the wetter or colder days. the flannel lining adds a touch of warmth but not too much, and I'm guessing come spring time I can wear these with nothing but some boxers and be a great temp for some corn tours. Lots of bushwhacking this year so far and the goretex pro shell is holding up great! stoked on these pants!

To quote Cher. Simply the Best!!!

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

These are the shiz nizzle. I use them for snowboarding. I previously used Burton 3L Gore pants. The material on these are far superior than others I have used or tried on. I am 6'3" and purchased the XL. They are a bit baggy but that is how I like them. If you are looking for a pair to hike with, I would size down. I also added a better belt to their stretch belt. I honestly can not imagine there is a better pant for ski/snowboard use.

I wear a size xl in the stingray pant. I want to move into a sabre pant for the extra baggy ness . Is it safe to assume I would order size xl as well in the sabre? I am 6 foot 4 and weight about 230 pounds. I have a long torso. I do not think I need the tall model.
Cheers Dion

Dion,
I would recommend staying with the XL size, and at 6'4", I would recommend the tall to anyone over 6'1". Although you can consult the sizing chart attached to this product page for more specific inseam specs.

very relaxed fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I returned these because the cut was way off for me. I'm 5'9" 210 with a 34 waist and 32/33 inseam. The Medium Saber pants fit in the waist but were tight in the thighs yet super bulky and long from the knees down.

That's what I thought and then I went snowboarding and they fit awesome with all the gear on. Best board pants I ever bought!

New school

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


I love the fabric that these are made of, burly Gore-Tex pro with a inside face fabric. They are awesome.
Thigh vents, minimalist. I am excited to connect the slide and lock system with my caden jacket. It should make a bomb proof one piece like two piece system.

The baggy style is in and will also make me a little less dorky. Since I foot and long these will shorten me a bit. Not the reason I have them but a definite plus.

Arc quality guarantees satisfaction

Quality you can trust

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

What doesn't Arcteryx make that isn't top of the line quality. I love these pants. I have had them now for 2 seasons and hey have held up really well. The pants are unchanged in that time and still use the N80p-x goretex material. They are extremely warm if layered appropriately and can also be worn on the warmest days. I love the large vents on these pants and the loose fit. If you plan on hiking mainly then you may want a pant with a slimmer fit but I have hiked a ton in these and find no problems with the looser cut. Waterproof as always since they are goretex and the shell fabric has held up better than expected. They are much softer and do not make the swish swish sound when you walk like goretex pro shell does. I love the large pockets on them and the built in waist belt helps you achieve the best fit possible. I expect I will not need a new pair of pants for quite a while with how well these are holding up.

Favorite snow shell

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

This piece is amazing. I wanted to get a pant that was a little more baggy and relaxed to fit the new freeriding style, and these are awesome. The squid ink color is sick, and it goes great with my orange sidewinder sv top. The powder skirt interface system is awesome for keeping out snow. Big thigh vents for those times when your legs need to dump heat from those quad burning mogul runs. Have handled everything I have thrown at them, from trees to deep powder. Favorite ski pant I have ever had.

Got these as a gift for my dad. He absolutely loves them. They fit him really well and they're true to size.

A backcountry take

There are some mixed reviews on these pants, mostly coming down to the style and fit so thought I'd throw my $0.02. As a preface, I ski 90% backcountry and 10% resort. I'm about 6' 160 lbs. Finally, I sometimes review products for GoreTex through a program called Mountain Techs.

Overall I like these pants for skiing at the resort, but the fit makes them difficult for _me_ to use in the backcountry. Too bad because otherwise they are a fantastic pant.

Pro:
I'm personally a big fan of GoreTex proshell fabric which these pants use because of its durability and breathability, even it sounds like you're wearing a paper grocery bag. Arcteryx also did a great job on seems, zippers etc. Aside from quality, my favorite part of these pants are the enormous pockets. I can easily stow an avalanche beacon, snacks, camera and even my thermometer which I like easy access to. The other really nice feature on these pants are the boot gators which is easy to slide up and down when fussing with buckles during a transition (as opposed to the gator on the Arcteryx Theta bibs that have a metal hook and snag on things).

Con.
Biggest complaints are the fit. They are definitely baggy. I don't mind being in fashion but I do find they can make kick turns difficult because of the low crotch. To make this worse, the belt is elastic so its hard to really snug down over my skinny frame. I'm told Arcteryx will replace provide a static belt if you ask for it. The pants also have side/thigh vents but I find they are a little small when I'm working hard on the up track.... making those a little longer would help quite a bit.

Overall - this pant lives up to the Arcteryx and GoreTex names in quality and performance. They are definitely stylish but it seems to come the cost of functionality, at least for me in the backcountry. But still a great resort pant.

Super Baggy Snowboarder Stereotype Pants

So, you took the old baggy-cut Arcteryx Stingray pants and removed the insulation? And you're calling them the Sabre pants? Ok, that's fine...

Seriously, maybe it's the fact that I spend so much time in my Theta mountaineering bibs that all the other Arcteryx bottoms feel like they're cut for 14yo snowboarders - which was me, 20 years ago. But these are cut so baggy through the legs that I feel like they're going to flap in the wind behind me! They're the right waist and length, but other than that they feel like they're 3 sizes too big.

And the ankle openings are so big they cover my entire snowboard boot - and all but the toe of my AT ski boots. I'm going to give them another try, but they got so much powder up the leg last time that I swapped out at lunch for some other pants!

Beyond that, the side zips, pockets, belt, and fabric weight are dead on. The lack of insulation is perfect for me, I run hot and like to pick my own level of insulation anyway. I just want to take these in to a tailor and get about 4 inches out of the leg diameter.

Disclosure: I occasionally receive and test GoreTex products through the Gore-sponsored MountainTechs and HuntingTechs programs. This was one of those items, but that didn't affect my review.

To each his own I guess... Seems like what you're saying is there not your look, not that they are a bad product or low quality like a 1-star rating might typically indicate. We'd have to do a formal count, but I believe Arcteryx offers about 20 different cuts/styles of waterproof/resistant hard and soft shell pants--something for everyone if you will.

For me personally, I really like the cut in the Sabre pants, particularly for resort and sidecountry riding--and I'm not 14. When I am pushing through a hard backcountry tour, climbing multi-pitch ice or mountaineering I usually opt for something trimmer, but for skiing and riding frontside these pants have a great loose feel and appearance; and most importantly (for me) they are one of the few styles that Arcteryx offers in an optional 'long' cut.

Responded on

Jason, very happy to hear you're rocking the Theta bibs. Both the Stingray and Sabre pants feature GoreTex Pro with soft-shell construction, meaning there's a low-loft flannel backer, or insulation. If you're happy with the fit of your Theta bibs and are in search of a pant, I'd recommend the Stingray as they're based on the same fit block as your Theta's.

Most durable pant ever...

I fell pretty bad last week in my Sabre pants - enough to cut both knees as I tumbled down a choke that got too tight. Long story short, my Sabre pants were unscathed. I thought they would be shredded, but they came out looking like new. I'm sold for life...

The description says its a 3L pro shell, but I just received them this morning and it is the goretex soft-shell (white line hardshell). What's the deal? This sounds like older version of these pants. Does anyone know?

Responded on

I've read certain places that the Gore softshell is just proshell with a fleece backer and softer outer fabric...don't know if it's true though.

Responded on

Fear not! The Sabre's are made from GoreTex Pro 3L, with "softshell technology." This means the face fabric has a softer hand and there's a low-loft, brushed flannel backer on the inside. The pants are still completely wind and waterproof.

Sabre Steez

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First of all I have a 38" waist and I bought these in an XL, and I have PLENTY of extra room as they fit pretty big. Throw a belt on and you're set to shred. I bought last years yellow color and they get a little dirty easier. I came off of arcteryx bibs of 7 seasons and finally wanted something more relaxed fitting. The goretex is great as you would expect from any Arcteryx product. Overall I really enjoy the pants!

Goofy fit

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

I understand these are labeled as relaxed, but they are so straight and baggy it was a joke to me. I really like the cargo side pockets, as well as having two hip pockets. The belt is good, but supplying your own would be a good idea. I could not live with the fit of the pants overall, just not even remotely good looking or practical to me. Not to say someone wouldn't like this, just my opinion.

Slide n' loc Feedback

Anybody using the Slide n' loc snaps with one of the compatible jackets? Which one? What is your feedback?

I'm wondering what I would like best in deep snow between:
1/ bibs and hip length jacket
2/ slide n loc pants (sabre) and hip length jacket (sabre/sidewinder sv)
3/ pants and thigh length jacket (theta/vertic)

I'm doing half resort and half touring. Ideally I could use it in a storm in a resort or touring on a sunny day. I can't afford 4 different arc'teryx jackets :) So I'm guessing something moderately lightweight and breathable both somewhat rugged.

Grab some technical steeze

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got a pair of these through a GORE-TEX product testing program about two weeks ago. I've worn them in-bounds skiing a couple times since then and have been impressed with them.
The Sabre pants definitely have a freeride style cut - wider legs and more-than generous boot cuffs (my feet almost disappear) and a slightly lower sitting waist. While loose-and-baggy usually isn't my style, the fit is comfortable and matches that latest trends in ski style. I consider these to be my steezy pants, a linguistic choice I think is backed by the bright color options (I went with the Cypress, which actually ended up being a pretty dark and nice shade of green).
I would say that the pants fit slightly larger than normal - I'm a small according to Arc'teryx's fit chart (30 inch waist) and an extra small would probably fit me better. The built-in belt does an adequate job of holding the pants up, but I did supplement with an additional belt.
So far the pants have been very waterproof, and, based on my other experiences with Arc'teryx gear I would expect them to remain so for a long time. One of the days i used them was in wetter snow and I stayed dry the entire time.
While there isn't true insulation, the shells are thick enough to offer a bit of protection against cold chairs, wind and snow (something that my Theta SV bibs don't) and feels like it's thick enough to be durable. The oversized boot cuffs patches feel very tough and haven't shown any scratches yet. Despite this, the pants still avoid being too heavy to hike in. I haven't had to use the side zips yet, but they seem large enough to be effective.
I love the large thigh pockets - they're easy to access when sitting or with a shell on and comfortably fit plenty of stuff.
Overall, these pants feel very solid and are comfortable. They probably won't be the best for hiking, but I'm planning on doing at least some touring in them and will be rocking them as my every-day resort pant.
