From groomer days to lift-served powder turns, the Arc'teryx Men's Cassiar Pants will do it all. The best of both worlds, this pant is constructed with a protective 3-layer Gore-Tex membrane that shields you from wind and water and a supple 4-way stretch fabric that enables you to move without restraint. A brushed flannel backer adds insulation and comfort when skiing. Internal adjusters leave the waistline clean and add to the pant's streamlined look while giving you a secure fit. Mesh-lined PowderGuard vents let you dump heat on warm days or after a long run. PowderCuffs keep snow from sneaking into your boots, while Keprotec insteps guard your hems against abrasion from sharp ski edges or boots.

Yes and No but am I to picky?
They fit true to size the work well for water proofness but the DWR didn't work on the first pair right out of the box. Sent them back and got warrantied a new pair they worked a little better but only lasted 4 times out. I'm told the new stuff is more environmently friendly but also is less effective. The outer is softer to hand than a normal hard shell so they get wet easier I think.

Terrific ski pants
I generally have trouble getting athletic pants that fit as I'm tall and slim (6'0" 165 lbs). Being able to select pants by waist and length, and that really come that way, was fantastic. These pants wore great right out of the gate for a full week skiing Jackson Hole. Comfortable. Don't bind anywhere. And flex as needed. Love these and can only highly recommend.

Totally Splurged, Worth It
NEVER have I ever owned such an expensive piece of gear. With that said, These are my favorite. They are like a softshell, lots of stretch and freedom of movement, super comfortable and not too baggy. They say in the description that there is a "brushed flannel backer for insulation" and I am here to say that is practically nonexistent. Not a negative though, I bought these because they are more of a shell and I can regulate temperature with my base layer weight. I love these pants. I fluctuate between a 34 and 36 (dang winter weight) with a 31" inseam and I bought these in a 36 regular and they are fantastic with plenty of adjustability down to a 34 with the inner adjustment. The quality of these is amazing and I am looking forward to doing some touring in these as well, they are so very light and breathable that I am confident that I will not overheat. I really like that these are a trim fit and fit a little more like my jeans which is what I was after. When riding in 25-35 degrees I found that a light base layer combined with these pants was perfect and unlike every other pair of pants I have owned, I have never felt a need to unzip the vents, they breathe fantastically. In sub 25-degree temps I reach for my medium weight base layer and they are great down to 15 degrees and if I am headed out in sub 15 then I would want a heavy base layer. If touring or snowshoeing ( I have only snowshoed in these and appreciate the kick patches on the inside of the legs ) then the lighter base layer will work down into the low 20's for me ( I typically run hot ). Yeah, these are expensive, but man oh man are they fantastic and I do not regret my decision.

Great fitting pant
This is a fantastic technical pant that is versatile enough for any condition. Love that the fit isn't bulky and allows movement for hiking, side stepping, or just cruising down groomers. I've only had a days in them so far, but I have been very pleased both in sunny days and storms. The medium fit perfectly.

Does Not Perform
I've used these pants for several months in all sorts of conditions, and the bottom line is they just don't perform like you would expect them to, especially for the price tag. The fit, look, and feel are all great and up to the typical Arcteryx standard, but when it comes to protecting you from the elements, they fall flat and are outperformed by ski pants that are a fraction of the cost. While the 3-layer Softshell Gortex fabric feels great, it will eventually soak through in stormy conditions if you're out long enough, in-bounds or out. Arcteryx missed the mark on this one.

Probably too late for you, but for anyone experiencing his problem, give them a wash! Ideally with Nikwax, but powder detergent works as well. This wetting out issue is actually not a failure of the waterproof membrane sandwiched in the middle of the pant, it is just a failure of the water repellent coating on the outer fabric of the pant. This failure happens when dirt gets in to the fabric, because the dirt actually acts as a conduit for the water. Wash that dirt out and prepare to fall back in love with your trusty pants/jacket for another season!

Stretch for your next turn...
I am a knee droppin', freeheeler so when I saw "supple 4-way stretch fabric" I was sold on the Cassiar Pants immediately. What I am trying to say is that I practice the sport of telemark skiing which requires a lot of leg movement and lunging. It seems that the Cassiar was made for tele. I was in the market for a new on-piste, resort pant and after trying on almost every pair of ski pants that Arc'teryx makes, I finally settled on the Cassiar. I was between a Medium and Large in every other pant but the Cassiar is sized numerically which was also a deciding factor. I am typically a 34x34 in pants and went with these in the 34/Tall. I will admit that the Tall inseam is a little long for me and the pants hit the ground when I am in street shoes. But with my Scarpa TX Pro Tele Boots on they fit perfectly in my opinion. I have about 25 days in them and counting and they have kept me warm and dry throughout many storms already (what a winter?!). I cannot recommend the Cassiar enough to anyone looking for a versatile ski pant. Feel to contact me directly with questions on Arc'teryx Pants, other ski outerwear or anything ski related.
