Winter weather doesn't stand a chance against the Stingray.
The Arc'teryx Women's Stingray Pant protects your legs when your inner snow-beast feels the need for speed. When work, home repairs, or errands take a back seat to lift-served bowls and fresh corduroy, pull on the Stingray Pant and zip up to the resorts.
Just like the Stingray jacket, this pant flatters your shape while keeping you warm and dry all day long. Nifty 3-layer Gore-Tex blocks wind, rain, and snow, and a low-loft polyester backer feels sweet against your gams all day long. The athletic cut gives this pant a sleek silhouette while providing ample room for layering when temps take a straight line down. The DWR finish helps water bead on the pant surface (instead of flattening out), so you can shake it off after a face-plant or a wet ride to the top.
The whiff of lining makes this pant a bit warm for extended touring, but thigh vents let you jettison excess heat. Zipped hand pockets sit an angle for a jaunty feel, and the close-hewed waist rides the small of your back. Who wants to wear granny panties when ripping through chest-deep pow? Keprotect insteps guard against sharp edges and boot scuffs so you can wear this pant for seasons to come without needing to find that roll of magic silver tape.

Sizing Not Great, Quality Is
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
These pants do run small and that's my experience with the other Arcteryx pants. I bought these to have for a few weeks while my last pair of Arcteryx ski pants (the Volta) was sent in to the warranty center. I skiied in them in the Alps for 6 days in a row, and a few days here in Utah.
First, the sizing. I typically wear a size 8 pant, 150 lbs and 5'7" with a 30" waist and 39" hip... I tried on the medium and it fit, barely, but there was no way I would be able to wear any layers underneath or have full range of movement while skiing/touring. I wish Arcteryx would use pant sizes instead to get a better fit. The non-existent size in between M and L would have been perfect. I got the large. They were a bit more baggy than I'd like but I could wear a layer (or 3) and move around fully. A little on the long side but when you're wearing ski boots its not too noticeable. The pants legs were a good width at the base for my ski boots and boot heaters to go underneath, which was not the case with the Volta. Once I was wearing them for skiing the sizing really didn't bother me whereas in the store I was skeptical.
Pockets are okay. They're not huge. The Sentinel has much better pockets.
The size vents are great although there is no mesh or anything beyond the zipper so if you're wearing shorts, your bare skin will be exposed-- nice for warm touring days but not so much if you fall.
Very high quality which is to be expected for Arcteryx and the price you're paying. The waterproof Gore-tex is awesome. No wet pants, ever. I washed them once with Granger's Performance wash and dried on med/high heat once and the DWR was like new.
I would have kept these pants, except Arcteryx replaced my previous pair and I chose the Sentinel instead.
Runs really small!!

- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I'm 5'11" 150 lbs and a pretty standard size 8/29 in all pants, and the Mediums were tiny (even though the size guide says M is 8-10 for a 29" waist)!! I could barely get them above my knees when trying them on. Also, the blue color is a lot darker than it appears in the picture - it's really more teal-ish. They seem like great quality pants, and I generally love Arc'teryx gear, but maybe just size up in these. As always, I was really happy with the buying process from Backcountry!
