    Details

    Slice through sleet, snow, and wind.

    Breaking trail through knee-deep snow and setting a bootpack up a steep couloir puts a whole new set of demands on your ski pants. Sure, they need to keep you dry from the elements, but they also need to be breathable, otherwise you're going to be a sweaty mess by the time you reach the top of your line. The Arc'teryx Men's Sabre Pants boast breathability and waterproof, windproof protection that will keep you dry from the inside and out whether you're accessing hike-to terrain in the ski area or discovering new backcountry zones after a long slog on the skintrack.

    A three-layer Gore-Tex shell with fully taped seams prevents everything from all-encompassing powder to heavy, wet mank out of your underlying layers. A hard-wearing yet breathable N80p-X softshell face and two large leg vents provide ample breathability to keep you cool and dry when things start to heat up during the ascent. During the descent, a brushed backer provides light insulation to keep your legs insulated between prolonged exposure to whipping wind and short bouts of exposure to freezing-cold snow.

    • Big-mountain ski pants designed with powder conditions in mind
    • Waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex protects from driving snow
    • Brushed backer offers light insulation during cold conditions
    • Outer thigh vents expel excess body heat while hiking or skinning
    • Integrated webbing belt keeps pants secure while wearing a pack
    • Internal gaiters form a snow-tight seal around boots
    • Durable Keprotec kick patches protect pants from ski edges
    • Athletic cut allows for full mobility and reduces bulk around cuffs
    • Item #ARC00BE

    The Best Frontside Pant Around

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M/S
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 154lbs

    These are by far my favorite ski pants I've ever owned. They perfected the fit on recent versions of this pant-- a good tweener of baggy and tailored. The brushed backing is really nice. It can be hard to find pants that fit my inseam and the short length fits me great.

    SWEET PANTS

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    just wrapped up 6 days in hokkaido with these puppies. great pants. i hit a tree stump at speed, so hard that it left a black and blue mark the size of a papaya on my inner thigh. there's barely a scratch on the pants. thik layer of insulation made them super warm with just a base layer underneath. but they were plenty light enough for skinning without sweating, thanks to the enormous vents. huge pockets. the adjustable belt strap is great and i like the slip-loc thing that connects with the Arc'teryx Rush Jacket. also the tapered fit is great for someone like me with a small frame (all of the arc'teyx stuff is made with different fits, so the same size in different models fits differently). only downside...i don't understand why these have to be $500. too much money for a pair of pants i only wear 10 times a year. but damn, these things are great.

    Great Resort Pant

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Pair this pant with a Sabre jacket and you have an awesome resort shredding combo. I love the 3 layer Gore-tex construction of these pants it insures that you stay dry and don't get clammy. The vents on the thighs are great to dump serious heat when you get to the bottom of your line. Arc'teryx used a strong Cordura nylon on the inner ankle so you don't slice your pants with your skis.
    I'd recommed this pant to anyone looking to ski the resort mostly and maybe get into the backcountry a little bit.

    SABRE

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    I really like these pants. They've lasted me a season and a half now and I'm in no need of a new pair.

    Super durable, warm, good looking. Match great with my Sabre Jacket

    Have XL but could size down to a L

    Perfect for resort and touring

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I've used these pants both in, and out of bounds, as a do everything pant. I love them! I really like the relaxed, baggy fit. It gives me plenty of room to layer underneath. With layers, this pant is extremely warm and I've never been cold. These pants are true to size. I am 5" 10' with a 32 waist and a medium fits me extremely well. They are a bit long for me, but that is nothing new for me. I am on the short side.

    Backcountry ruins my ski time!

      I ordered this SEP 14, and find out today at ski resort that the Backcountry sent me a gamma pants of the same color!! With no waterproof at all!

      Very protective

      I really like these pants! I've wore them in 15 degree weather with 20mph winds and with a minimal base layer. They kept me very warm! I really like the multiple pockets! There big enough to carry whatever it is you need comfortably! They are true to size and the fit looks really good and stylish! They're baggy, but not too baggy! I think there an excellent fit for skiers and snowboarders alike! When hiking in deep snow, the gator does let in a little snow, so without a big boot, you might want an outside gator! The one gripe I do have is that there could be a gator zip to access boots! Other than that these pants are phenomenal!

      Sabre + Sabre

        I've got a Sabre jacket that I love and I decided to pair it with a matching pair of pants for skiing. Their 3L Gore-Tex and outer vents were important factors for me. The range of colors to choose from was also a plus.

        Highly Recommended

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large

        Great construction as you'd expect from Arcteryx. Has kept me warm and dry throughout the ski season this year. Love the numerous and deep pockets. Baggy in the right places without feeling like you are swimming in them, which gives you the flexibility you need on the slopes and makes it easy to get in/out of them when needed. I expect to use these for several years to come.

        Steeeezzyyyyy

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size

        I have a single gripe with these pants; the lack of any fastener on the gaiter. They still work great on your ski/snowboard boots, but you'll need legit gaiters if you plan to use these for wading through the white stuff.

        Size is true, but a little longer and baggier than typical for Arcteryx, trying to please us boarders I guess. Not enough of a variation to matter for most, but if you're on the fence about going up a size.. don't. Plenty of wiggle room for you to do your thing.

        Now it's time for the praise, and honestly, I can't say enough. I absolutely love these pants and I could talk all day about the awesome functionality, the flat seams, and the deep pockets that don't impinge your movement no matter how full you stuff them. I could wow you with anecdotes about staying completely dry after SITTING in a running mountain stream to take pictures of my four-legged hiking partner, or laying down on Quandary Peak in 70+ MPH February winds and being toasty enough to take a nap. But these pants are made by Arcteryx, so you already expect them to be downright bomb-proof.

        What you may not expect is how flattering (read: straight steeezyyyy) the clean lines and flat seams look day in and day out, on the hill or chilling by the fire pit.

        It's a snow day, and the dress code is fly.

        Steeeezzyyyyy

        Deep pockets and deep powder

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size

        I love these 3 layer GoreTex pants. They keep you dry when Mother Nature is delivering the white gold from the sky. When sure decides you need some Vitamin D in your life, they keep you comfortable and breathable. If you are too warm, they have massive leg vents if you really want to feel the cool breeze on your tree trunks. The two front leg pockets are massive, which is nice if you like to carry a bunch of stuff with you. Also, the Sliden'Loc attachments with my Arc'teryx Sidewinder SV jacket is a nice touch. Keeps the snow out of the back of your pants on the really deep days. Do yourself a favor and add these pants to your winter wardrobe.

        Well Fitting and Bomber

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium
        • Height: 5'11"
        • Weight: 180lbs

        Got these for the winter shred. These are very durable, breathable and true to size. I love the deep pockets in the front as well as the zippered vents on the side. Bought the color Biome and complements all my jackets well.

        Unanswered Question

        Sizing on these? I tried these on in both Small and Medium. I'm 6'1" tall and weigh 170#. My waist is about a 32". The Medium was quite loose in the waist. The Small was a better fit (see pic below). BUT, I was trying on without any base layer (besides my boxers. Thoughts? Too snug in Small?

        Unanswered Question

        good morning,

        was wondering if you could give me a sense between the Sabre and Stingray Arcteryx pants, in regards to fit, protection, warmth, etc? ski mostly in Minnesota w/ a few trips out east/west every year.

        thanks
