The best ski pants I have ever owned. Perfect for lift served skiing and colder backcountry tours.
- Quality Gore-tex softshell fabric with appropriate reinforcement patches
- Large thigh pockets, big enough for a large subway sandwich
- Unique zipper vents that open slightly to the back of the thigh
- Relaxed fit
- Tobiko is easy to see
- Arc'teryx quality
- The built-in belt is kinda wimpy, there are belt loops for a more substancial belt
- The color, Tobiko, is very bright
I acquired these pants through a product testing program I am in. They are my go-to pants for winter activities when I need protection from the weather, especially when it is cold. They are very well made, albeit on the baggy side.
The Gore-tex softshell fabric seems to be very durable, breatheable and weatherproof. The two thigh pockets will hold tons of stuff, even a water bottle. There is one more pocket for keys, lip balm, etc. There are extremely tough fabric patches on the inner cuff which should keep ski edges a bay.
The gaitors are easy to use, but don't come with a hook. I like the partial vents slightly behind the outside thigh area.

The Arc'teryx Sabre Pant fits mountain terrain and is great for piste adventures. The New N80p-X GORE-TEX face fabric is highly durable and will withstand exposure to route finding and daily use. The flannel backer lends light insulation while the relaxed fit leaves room for winter layers. Clean and sleek in appearance, these pants are great for any freeride, deep powder lover.
The Arc'teryx Sabre pants are built with downhill-specific shaping and technical features that riders and skiers appreciate. The fabric excels for the stop-and-go rhythm of resort skiing and riding. Durable Gore-Tex(R) Soft Shell 3L is lighty insulated and offers waterproof, breathable protection; 100% seam sealed. Features a brushed-knit polyester lining that slides easily over layers and wicks moisture away. Removable internal belt lets you dial down the fit so pants won't sag when you're cruising. Reduced quantity and thickness of seams saves weight and provides excellent breathability. Laminated powder cuffs feature elastic grippers, and are mounted high enough to fit underneath snowboard binding highbacks. Thigh vents with 2-way waterproof zippers enhance airflow when needed. Instep patches along hems provide extreme abrasion resistance. Large cargo pockets with waterproof zippers stash small essentials out of your way; hand pocket with flaps. Embedded RECCO(R) reflector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors for quicker acquisition of position in an avalanche. Sabre pants are shaped with the most relaxed, freeride-friendly fit of all Arc'teryx pants. Slide-and-lock snaps attach pants to compatible jacket (sold separately).
You might like to wear your dad's tighty neon ski pant once in a while, but we know for a fact that the Men's Sabre Pant will be your go-to most days. The waterproof breathable Gore-Tex fabric is guaranteed to keep you dry, and the relaxed fit means you can sit down on the lift without worrying about busting seams. Side vents let air flow in and out of this pant so you stay cool during hot hikes, and the flannel backer that lines the inside of the legs means more warmth when you're on a cold lift chair.
