    A harmonious combination of hardshell and softshell.

    Arc'teryx designed the Men's Lithic Comp Pant specifically for backcountry skiers. Gore-Tex waterproof panels at the front of the legs, seat, and cuffs and highly breathable Trusaro softshell panels along the back of the legs and at the waist provide weather protection and breathability and mobility where you need them most. An XPD Expedition fit accommodates several layers for the chilliest dawn patrols, and e3D patterning includes a gusseted crotch and articulated knees and seat for a full range of motion.

    The Lithic Comp also features hip-to-knee side zippers for ventilation and removable suspenders for convenience. The Cordura PowderCuffs stretch over your ski boots to eliminate bulky zippers, and Keprotec reinforcements stand up to crampons and boot wear.

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Were these really designed for a man?

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: L & XL

    For a man used to closing his pants at the front, these are really weird. The closure to the top is via the side zipper on the left. For me this requires some contortions getting them on. Obviously the fly is not incorporated in the closure but it is only a short zipper. Access through it is tight. The Arcteryx LS size is usually my best. The choice of inseam lengths is not available on this model. I tried a large but with my 36inch waist it was a real hassle to get the side zipper to the top over just a lightweight top. The inseam was about 1 1/2 inches too long but since the zipper doesn't go to the bottom it appeared that an alteration could be made without too much difficulty. I talked to a gearhead & we decided to give an XL a try. Returned the L for XL. BAD CHOICE!! The fit was unbelievably massive & loose. So I sent those back & gave up. Maybe next year.

    I tried the Large too. Very slim fit, and I have a 36 inch waist. Side zips only go down to the knee. I doubt they would fit over a tele knee pad either. Not the roomy fit of my Theta SV bibs. I wanted a roomy fit to carry my beacon in a side pocket, but side pockets get uncomfortable with beacon inside, once again too tight a fit. Zipper pocket is too small for my Pieps. A beautifully made bib.
    I think I will return mine too.

    JayPeak Skier,

    Probably too little too late, but in case others are reading with similar questions... If you love the pants, I would encourage you try the XL first before giving up! I'm 6' 195lbs and a 34 waist. Unlike Robert, when I went up to the XL with these I loved them and have used them a full season now with no regrets. In my review on here I posted a pic for reference so you can see how they fit (wearing orange scarpa boots). They look extra baggy since they're pulled up above my top buckle in the picture, but the fit is perfect in my opinion. Loose enough for uninhibited mobility, but not too baggy that they get in the way.

    I'm sure some people will fall into Robert's camp of being stuck between sizes and have to look elsewhere, but at 6'2 I think you would be pumped on the XLs.

    Great pants!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small

    I am an Arc'teryx first timer when it comes to pants and I now see what the rage is all about. These pants are bomber and fit incredibly well with a great balance of room and articulation. The half bib design is well thought out. Being made from a softshell material up top with a technical hard shell on the bottom they fit well and function even better. 

If you get too hot or need to use the bathroom they have a side zip vent and one on the other side that zips through to the top of the pant for easy access. 

Well done Arc'teryx, Well Done!

    Super comfortable

      These pants are awesome. I just bought them, have only used them for a week but I wore them on an 8 mile day in Montana, and they are super comfortable. The vents are great, the suspenders are barely noticeable, and the range of motion is excellent for ski touring. I am 6'4", 200 lbs and the large fits great

      Super comfortable

      Waterproof & Functional

      • Size Bought: Medium

      Great touring pants. The Lithic Comp Bibs are comfortable and fit perfectly in the legs. I've worn them a few times in different settings, hiking up light snow fall or deep powder. The concept of the Gore in front and breathable material in back is awesome. They keep me dry but breath well enough that I'm not a sweaty mess. If you start heating up too much they have great ventilation zippers that do a good job at keeping you leveled out. All in all, wonderful bib, i highly recommend.

      Go-To Ski Pants

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

      The Lithic Comp Bibs are very comfortable and have a great fit between trim and baggy. I've worn them on deep days with the wind ripping and heavy snow falling, and even though they are not completely Gore-Tex, they still did an excellent job at keeping my dry and windproof. They can get a little warm on sunny tours but the side zips open long and wide to effectively flush heat out.
      My favorite features on the bibs are the drop pockets. When I first got the Lithics I wasn't excited to see pockets on ski pants without any sort of zipper or full-length velcro, but after logging thousands of vertical feet in these, I love the simplicity and ease of access to essentials that the simple flap closure allows (Just don't keep valuables in them).
      I previously used my Arc'teryx Stinger bibs for resort skiing and Arc'teryx Gamma SK pants for touring, but both see way more closet time now that I have the Lithic Comp Bibs.

      Perfect Bib

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

      I have used these for touring primarily and they are awesome. All the protection from the elements you need, and perfect amounts of stretch and breathability from the softshell bits. I'm 6' 195lbs, I could definitely rock a Large, but I like a little extra room to party so I went with XL and they still work great without getting in the way. If I had to do it again though it would be a toss up. You can see for yourself in the picture.

      Perfect Bib

      True to size

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      Excellent bibs and true to fit. Extremely comfortable and flexible where needed. I am 5'10, 170 lbs with a 33 in. waist and a 32 in. inseam. I wear a medium with enough room for two base layers.

      So good!

      I was looking for a lightweight softshell ski pant and wasn't finding anything that really fit my needs (or my body) the way I wanted. Decided to try these out and they're so good. Nice loose-without-being-baggy fit, the fabric is light enough that I don't overheat, and the thigh vents further help with venting. I have the Lithic jacket as well and I'm so pumped on this rig, especially for backcountry. Probably will use my burlier stuff for the resort, just because the Lithic series is pretty lightweight.

      Wouldn't mind having zipped thigh pockets but so far haven't had any trouble...the one zippered pocket is quite small, would probably fit an iPhone 6, not sure about the 6 Plus. The gaiters are a different design - elastic cord cinch instead of grippy rubber. So far so good but I'm not totally sold.

      6'1", 185#, 32/32, size M fits great.

      Awesome new offering from Arcteryx

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size

      I bought several pairs of snowpants to try on and compare so that I could decide on which pair to get this season. I bought these and although I was stoked by them, ultimately decided against keeping them. Pros: They are lightweight, and they have the softshell material in all the right places. I loved the pocket options and the adjustable powder cuffs on the gaiters. I also thought the sizing was spot on. I am 5'10, 160 lbs and a medium fit me perfectly. Cons: I don't feel like they had enough venting. When I'm touring, I overheat super easy and I have struggled to find a pair of pants that are able to adequately help me to thermoregulate. I thought that the side zips could have been longer on these. Also I would have liked the ability to remove the bib and just run these with a belt I wanted to. All in all, a great offering from Arcteryx and if you don't overheat super easy, these would be a great option for you!

      Hey Joseph,

      I ended up going with the Outdoor Research Trailbreaker pant. They are similar to the Arcteryx lithics in that they have a combination of a more waterproof "hardshell" fabric combined with a more breathable softshell. I left a review of my initial impressions on that product page. I'll update it after I've been able to get out in them. We just need some more snow here in the Wasatch!

      What is the inseam on a large

      i am 6'2 and 173lbs what size should i get?
