Casitawrote a review of Arc'teryx Sentinel Pant - Women's on December 22, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
I originally wanted to get the Stingray for color reasons, but the sizing on those were WAY off (the large barely fit). Like all the other ladies here, I found the Sentinel to be a much better fitting, much more flattering ski pant with more pockets to stash goodies in. I'm 5'4-ish" (size 8) and the medium/regular fit perfect in the waist with spare room for layering. I will say that these run long though, even the regular version is about 2 inches too long. But, with boots/bindings, the length is just right and I'll just roll them up when walking around in shoes. These are SUPER cute, the pink tulip color is really fun, and are WAY comfy. It's not easy finding a "good ass pant" in the ski aisle, and these do the trick!
OK - let's talk function since life is not always a fashion show! I've worn these a few times in 20-30 degree (F) weather so far with a single and double layer. They are perfectly warm and I'll likely use a thin + thick layer for wicked cold days. But what is the most impressive thing was my test in them yesterday, during what I swear was one of Utah's WETTEST snow storms ever. It was a day meant only for gor-tex, and these pants literally saved me from drowning like a wet rat at the resort in all the fabulous, albeit wet, snow. The wetness from the day worked it's sneaky way through my waterproof technical shell jacket, my waterproof leather gloves, and almost my ski boots. But my legs ... dry as a freakin' desert! I sat in puddles, I accidentally spilled my PBR on my pants, and I even played in the rain when I got back into the city. Legs. Remained.Dry!
I can officially say these are the best ski pants I've owned, for both form and function. Highly recommended!
