Bibs are beautiful when you're heading out for a full day of deep snow and face shots.
Bibs are not just for babies. Bibs are for badass snow-babes like yourself who hit deep powder and crave record-setting blizzards. That's why you own the Arc'teryx Women's Sentinel Full-Bib Pant. This Gore-Tex beast gasps with unfettered enthusiasm when the forecast calls for snow in the valley, snow in the mountains, and no sun in sight. A relaxed fit lets you layer underneath when you're trekking in booger-freezing temps, and the form-fitted silhouette keeps you looking lady-like as you dominate the white-washed world in front of you.
Waterproof breathable Gore-Tex shell fabric and a high-back bib design ensure not one flake of the fluffy stuff gets through to your baselayers. The fact that this bib features a quiet supple fabric, graceful lines, and a shred-ready articulated fit is just icing on the cake. Side zips double as heat-dumping vents for rapid cooling. Powder cuffs hug your boots to keep your feet snow-free. Instep protection prolongs the life of the pant by shielding it from vicious edge cuts and crampon teeth.
Belt loops let you bling your bibs with a sequined belt. Pockets on the thigh and bib provide a place for your phone and mid-day snacks. When the day is done and you're recounting the endless face shots to a jealous crowd at the bar, loosen the suspenders and let the bib fall away for a slightly less intense look. Unless you need the extra protection because your nickname is Ms. Spills-A-Lot.

Gearheads do Powder Mtn!
I wore my Sentinel bibs for a classy yet also sunny powder day at a litttle-known Utah Gem of a resort, Powder Mountain.
Our Gearhead management team gathered to partake of the bountiful fresh snows.
See the bibs in action at 0:32 and 1:29.
As I stated in my review below, I found them surprisingly shapely and flattering for a bib. SIGNIFICANTLY more so than the Norrona Lofoten Gore-Tex Pro Shell bibs I sported the 3 years prior.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I rarely give 5 star reviews, but this piece of gear is one of those rare items that could be considered 'GOATWORTHY'. Here's why:
* SIGNIFICANTLY lighter than the Norrona bibs I sported the last 3 years. Now I find myself reaching for these Arx bibs every time, they are seriously about 1-2lbs lighter.
* The featherweight nature of these bibs makes them INSANELY comfy. You can hardly tell you are wearing them, super supple, form fitting and flattering. YES - THESE GIVE YOU A SHAPE!!
I actually feel like a lady when wearing them - LOVE!
* Great zipper placement. The 2 small chest pockets have been very useful for stashing items like keys and credit cards. The side pockets are HUGE and I often stash snacks, gloves, a hat, my phone etc...when touring.
* Speaking of great zipper placement, the sizable zips on these pants ROCK for 2 reasons. They offer a HUGE zone for ventilating during touring or spring skiing days. You can dial the amount of venting you need quite easily. Going to the bathroom is a CINCH. Approximately, scientifically 40x easier than trying to use the bathroom in my Norrona bibs.
* To evacuate: Simply unsnap one side of the bibs, zip both sides halfway down and squat! No removing jackets, no unzipping your top from your bottom - the Norrona pants were GARBAGE for trying to pee in the woods - these pants are LEAGUES ahead
* Durability is good - Got 60ish days on these and nothing major to report. There are some minor scuffs on the inner pant cuffs where they rub my boot buckles. These cuffs are significantly more durable than those on the Norrona bibs.
* After 60 days I have noticed less water repellency , so looks like it's time to treat these with some Nikwax - I think the Norrona pants demonstrated better longevity in this sector.

Arc'teryx Sentinel Full-Bib Pant
The women's Sentinel bib pants are amazing...
The women's Sentinel bib pants are amazing - but the belt lops are kind of goofy looking - sort of all dressed up and nowhere to go. Are there Arcteryx women's belts available to wear with them?
If I were to make a suggestion it would be for the Arc'teryx Conveyor Belt (which we do not carry) but really any nylon belt should work if you really wanted to give these bibs someplace to go.
The Conveyor Belt is back in stock:
