I just have to say, BUY THEM!!! Worth every dang penny. They are so breathable, lightweight (all my reviews are about the weightlessness) I have worn them from -20 Celsius, to +10. I just roll the bib over and dont wear the chest part when it is so warm and zip the sides down. They repel water, mud, dog snot, embers from the fire (sort of), everything. I am 5'9 and 140lbs and bought the black mediums and they fit like a glove, i can still wear warm wool first layer underneath and plenty of room, I can bend over and not worried about them tearing, they are long enough, and LOOSE ENOUGH AT THE CUFF TO FIT OVER MY SNOWBOARD BOOT. That is what I was worried about. They are the best.
I am 5'3" and 120 lbs, the size small fit perfectly and XS was too tight.
These are INSANELY lightweight. They are about half the weight of my Norrona Lofoten bibs, even though they have more fabric!! Woah.
These are sick in the backcountry if you live in a colder climate, though you may overheat if skinning in warm temps.
Definitely pretty stoked on these!
Awesome, awesome bibs! If you're wider through the hip and thigh consider ordering a size up.
These bibs are well worth the high price tag, as I don't expect I'll have to replace them anytime soon, or ever. They're a much baggier fit that most ArcTeryx stuff (which I wanted). Super waterproof, bullet-proof construction -- they keep the wind out and are quite warm. Venting system is great for touring. Pocket placement is just about perfect. There are only 2 downsides to these pants: the adjustable suspender buckle tends to slip, so I'm constantly having to adjust them. And there is no drop seat so going to the bathroom can be a bit of a chore, especially in the backcountry. Honestly, I love these pants so much, it's worth it though.

Thank you Arcteryx for making this bib! It fits beautifully, is incredibly comfortable and has the bulletproof construction you expect (and pay for) with Arcteryx. Been waiting forever to buy new bibs. These will last for years.

Shakespeare once wrote that "brevity is the soul of wit," and his wisdom proves useful in concisely describing these bibs. Again: best.bibs.ever. Bar none. I ski between 70-150 days a season, and will only wear bibs, whether I'm skiing the resort or touring in the backcountry. I love faceshots as much as the next guy or gal, but I simply don't want the fluffy stuff up in MY stuff. I skied last season in the fancy schmancy Norrona Lofoten Pro-Shell Bib, and while I loved them for their style, comfort, and functionality, those bibs ultimately didn't stand their short test of time. Multiple tears in the cuffs, as well as one in the rear end, in the past few weeks eventually prompted me to trade in the Norrona bibs for the Arc'teryx Sentinel...and I haven't looked back. Alongside the obvious steeze factor (critical, of course), the Arc'teryx Sentinel is super comfortable, 100% weather-proof (windproof, waterproof, powder-proof, you name it), and, shockingly, LIGHTWEIGHT. These bibs weigh in at less than 2 pounds, a shocking feat for an item with this sort of construction and resultant durability. The pants aren't insulated, but the flannel-like fabric lining the inside provides extra comfort for a bell-to-bell day in the resort or in the backcountry. While cuffs and gaiters on ski pants or bibs are usually apt to tear (whether from boot buckles or binding brakes), the inner cuffs on the Sentinel seem particularly tough (and my experience with durable Arc'teryx bibs in the past provides sufficient confidence that the cuffs will survive many rugged days on the hill). The price tag is certainly hefty, but I simply cannot speak highly enough of the Arc'teryx Sentinel. These bibs are completely and utterly fantastic.
