Description

Feeling good and looking good are no longer mutually exclusive.

A lot of today's high performance, active-fit clothing looks a bit too slim to be really fashionable. Free-skiers and snowboarders whined. Arc'teryx listened. Designers gave the Sabre Pant a more generous cut so they would be a little more in touch with today's baggy fashions than many of the company's previous pants. The Sabre still has the technical features of the rest of the line; Gore-Tex waterproof breathable construction, thigh vents, and articulated knees. As a special topping, Arc'teryx added color-matched Keprotec instep patches to the pant's cuffs to add a heap of resiliency--never fear the ski-edge shreddage again.

Any larges left? In the past I've worn an Arc'teryx XL, but I received these and they seem larger

Awesome pants

This pants rule in backcountry. They're so light, with awesome design and durability. In fact breathability is incredible, even in summer time when you need to reach snow it's very comfortable. Cleaning is also very simple. I am 5'10 and M size fit very good.
Perfect pants!

Any chance you are getting more mediums in this year?

I suggest opening a chat with a BC rep for the quickest answer. The link is at the top of the page.

Typically very little if any winter gear comes in during the spring. In fact they try and sell of the remainder of their winter stock throughout the summer. You should probably look around and see if you can find some elsewhere

The squid ink is just purple enough for the man who wants purple pants but is too old to wear them. Here is me in the pants about to get the goods.

Arcteryx Quality

This pair of pants is the third arcteryx item i have purchased for my adventures in the outdoors. I got the green color which is crazy so if your thinking its a mellow green its almost more of a teal. It has all of the bells and whistles you want in a pair of ski pants besides insulation, recco super breathable super waterproof warm and above all durable. The only complaint is that the hip vents dont havwe a mesh betweenthe outside and under the pants so snow can get through if you use them , i dont use them. I have boarded in these though the horrible winter weve had here and on the coldest day i still only wore boxers under them and i was toasty and i ride a lot of park and through all of the falls and abuse theyve taken it all . Yes they are expensive but they are the best pants ypull ever have and probably the last paur youll ever buy!

Hi Zach

How you like the green light color? What jacket color did you match up the pants with?

Responded on

I think the color is rad but if your not ready to commit to a crazy color i would go gray, i match these with the blue and purple north face gonzo.

I am 6'2 and weigh roughly 280 lbs. Big thighs and a 42 inch waist. In process of dropping 20 to 30 lbs so debating xxl or xl. I would hate to buy and then shrink out of them. Suggestions (besides lose some weight)?

Responded on

Roy, the fit on these runs a little big so if you lost the 30 pounds like you plan to you might be able to use the XL's. If they are a little snug that will give you more incentive to lose a few more pounds or you could simply return them.

These are the best pants I have ever worn. Roomy yet not cumbersome, light, breathable and waterproof. Are handling the exceptional amounts of snow getting puked out of the sky at Mt. Baker.... currently.

Great pants, highly recommended.

Got these to use last season snowboarding and so have had about 2 seasons of use in them so far. These pants are fantastic including the quality and durability. No busted seams or anything, great range of motion (the articulated knees are great), and it's gore-tex so it's still waterproof.

I tend to get cold easily so I tend to layer up in these pants a bit more than most people would, especially in colder days. I don't know if it's just the pants but I've never been overly hot/cold in any condition wearing these which I guess is a testament about how easily you can dial in for your own use. The thigh vents are great too in order to dump any extra heat while going up those lifts.

The carbon color depicted on here is spot on. I'm about 5'6", ~120lbs and got a small. The built in belt let me dial in the waist. Length was a bit long (nothing I could do about that) but was fine once I booted up though they would catch and drag sometimes (thank got for the Keprotec instep patches). Roominess was the perfect amount for me compared to the majority of snowboarding pants out there that are sometimes just too ridiculously big.

Killer Pants.

These are amazing pants. I am a big guy,6'3" 290lbs. with really big thighs. The pants have tons of room. I have had 2 different TNF pants in recent years and they don't hold a candle to these as far as fit and warmth. I would recommend these to anyone. Especially anyone that has a bigger build.

Awesome pant!

Just got back from Utah and skied a variety of temperatures (unfortunately the conditions were constant...ice). They were warmer than my old pair of insulated Spyder pants while night skiing in 7 degree weather and perfectly comfortable during the days when the temp hovered near 40.

Just got these pants, I'm 5'8" tall stocky build, went for the medium, they are huge in the waist and the length... way too big, my old Arcteryx bibs are a large and fit near perfect... any suggestions on a pant for a stocky guy with short legs?

Responded on

You could try the Arc'teryx Stingray pant, it's a bit more trim, more of a traditional Arc'teryx fit, and has waist adjusters built in. Or the Stinger bibs, those are some of my faves, and also come in a short inseam length, which would probably be the ideal fit for your described physique.

Liked the Jacket So Much I Got the Pants

I purchased the Sabre jacket earlier in the year and liked it so much I decided to go for the pants as well. I am a big fan of the Gore-Tex soft-shell with the light fleece lining. Do not consider it insulated but provides some extra comfort. Others may disagree but I don't consider these pants to be baggy. I would consider them a more of a looser fit in the lower part of the leg compared to other Arcteryx pants. In size I am 5'9" and wear a size 33" waist and the medium is a good fit for me. As others, one of the first things I did was to ditch the belt that comes delivered.

good pants

These pants replaced my old Arcteryx Scorpions (great pants), which had survived more than 150 days before the lower legs turned to tatters. I will compare the Sabre to its approximate predecessor, the Scorpion. Many of my feelings are already reported in other reviews here, e.g.: belt (lame, but not a problem - I use my own leather belt which works great); cuffs (unlike the Scorpion there is no cinch or closure button, which is a minus); Recco reflector, which both the Sabre and Scorpion have, is a must for me; thin felt liner is excellent (a bit less fuzzy than the Scorpion) and adds a surprising amount of insulation given its thinness. On a frigid 8 degree F, cloudy day I tried out the pants with only very thin long underwear. Though I should have had an extra medium layer, to my surprise I survived pretty well. Both pants breath very well, with a slight nod to the Sabre.

As usual with Arcteyx, the construction seems to be top notch. (Time will tell.) I didn't find these pants too baggy as some others did, in fact I really liked the fit. I'm a 34 inch length and the Sabre's length seemed the right size. The Kevlar patch is much better than the Scorpion, which had nothing! (Even so, the patch seems a bit small to me.) For the Scorpion, I had to use boot gaiters to protect the cuff area. I have never had ski pants that, like the Sabre, have holes in the tops of the gaiters. Will this ever lead to snow going up in the pant legs if I tumble at Mach 2 in 3 feet of snow? (I don't know.) Because I'm unsure how well the gaiter works on the Sabre, I'll be keeping my boot gaiters in my backpack for a while. (And they also help out on super cold days.) My other complaint is the pockets. When skiing they keep my stuff in a very comfortable position. But when riding the chair I found the lower pockets contents tend to slide off to the side so I ended up sitting on them. (The Scorpion had great pockets, but there were only two of them, on the thigh.) My solution is to put most of my stuff in the two upper pockets. It seems to me that the design of the pockets could be improved, but perhaps others don't have this problem.

go to the small dude, med will drag you down. i.m a 36, could have gone 34 but still an awesome pant. however, for us shorter types check your cuffs when stepping in1

I thought that Arc'teryx offered tall versions of these pants, yet I don't see any talls offered as a selection on the pulldown order menu. Is this simply because I have the wrong impression or does Backcountry does not carry the tall versions?
Thanks in advance.

Responded on

Dave,
Thanks for your question. The Sabre pant from Arcteryx is available in a tall inseam, however backcountry.com does not stock that inseam length in this particular pant model from Arcteryx. I hope this is helpful for you.

I am 5'11" 180lbs and wear a size 33/34 x 31 inch pant. Arc Teryx mediums generally seem a bit tight but the comments make it sound like these run large. Anyone right at the cusp between sizes have a recommendation made from experience.

Responded on

I'm 6'2" and 190. I wear the mediums since the larges were HUGE. Make my flylow stash pants look tight. Waist is usually a 33 and inseam is 34. These are great -- not too short, not too tight.

replaced the belt with this.

Too Baggy

I'm sure these are well built, but these are way too baggy in my opinion, and that's coming from a snowboarder. I'm probably going to return and get a different style.
