Svelte softshell pants for your big mountain playground.
Cut for the freeride ski and snowboard crowd, the Arc'teryx Women's Sentinel Pant combines an athletic fit with the stormproof protection of a Gore-Tex membrane. Arc'teryx is known for its classic sleek-and-clean approach, so you can be sure that these pants easily transition between hitting jumps with your freestyle friends and ripping tight chutes with your backcountry buddies. With the Slide 'n Lock system, attach the related Sentinel jacket for full-bodied snow protection.
Gore-Tex technology keeps the weather outside when it seems like the weather has the flu: massive snow pukes, feverish winds, and sleet that runs and runs and runs. Thanks to the Gore-Tex three-layer softshell, though, you can play all day in the winter sick without feeling a spit of precipitation. When the sun shines and your nose glows bright white with zinc, open the side zips to dump surplus hot air as you hike along the ridgeline. Articulated knees and seat enhance a gusseted crotch when the trek ahead is anything but smooth. Keprotec instep guards protect against edge cuts and crampon gashes on your way to the top.
Fashion isn't just for Fifth Avenue or your day job. The women-specific fit hugs your curves without cutting in funny places. The low-rise waist keeps this pant in lock-step harmony with the latest lower-wear trends. Belt loops let you accessorize your snow pant since glitter goes with everything. Even with a catlike silhouette, the relaxed cut lets you layer it on thick when temps plunge. Fly off the rails and clear cliffs without worrying about incoming snow putting a damper on the fun.

- Q & A
Love these ski pants!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
I purchased the Sentinel ski pants because I wanted Gore-Tex pants and I wanted them to work with my Arc'teryx shell jacket. (The pants have 2 small buttons on the snow skirt that slide into keepers on my jacket. This helps to keep me dry.)
I was a little freaked out over the price, but they are worth ever penny in my book. The pants are very functional and fit great. I love all the zipper pockets, especially the deeper ones in front. The pants are light-weight and pack well. You will need to wear an appropriate under-layer with them though as they are basically just a shell.
I'm so glad I purchased these pants. I just wish I had done it sooner.
"Hugs your curves"? Not exactly
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Extra Small
No hugging here. I have two pairs of these pants from previous seasons. They aren't curve hugging either but they fit nicely and accommodate expedition weight layer with comfort. Just bought another pair. They must be 3 inches larger around the waist. Previously, Arcteryx seemed to run a bit smaller than the competitor brands...that was the attraction! Sized out of another brand?
Arc'teryx Quality and Awkward Sizing
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Size Bought: S/Tall
My fiancee has a 27 inch waist, 36 inch hips, and a 32 inch inseam. Going off the sizing chart, we ordered a Small/Tall. The pants fit fine in the waist and hips but were long and very wide-legged. I tried to tell her that 90s style is coming back, but she didn't like the JNCO jeans fit. Too bad for her!
But really, these pants are fantastic quality. For someone with skinny legs and narrow hips, they are very wide-legged. If we reorder, we will probably go for a Regular length, Trim fit pant, like the Arc'teryx Ravenna.
