Arcteryx Sabre Pant - Men's: No matter where, what, and how you are getting down the mountain the Sabre Pant from Arc’teryx will best pant you could ever have on. It is designed with a loose fit to allow you to move freely and is built to last longer than everything else using Gore-Tex with Soft-shell construction and a brand new N80px fabric. If you feel like your pants shouldn’t wear out before you do, this is the pant for you.
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.
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.

I got a pair of these through a GORE-TEX product testing program about two weeks ago. I've worn them in-bounds skiing a couple times since then and have been impressed with them.
The Sabre pants definitely have a freeride style cut - wider legs and more-than generous boot cuffs (my feet almost disappear) and a slightly lower sitting waist. While loose-and-baggy usually isn't my style, the fit is comfortable and matches that latest trends in ski style. I consider these to be my steezy pants, a linguistic choice I think is backed by the bright color options (I went with the Cypress, which actually ended up being a pretty dark and nice shade of green).
I would say that the pants fit slightly larger than normal - I'm a small according to Arc'teryx's fit chart (30 inch waist) and an extra small would probably fit me better. The built-in belt does an adequate job of holding the pants up, but I did supplement with an additional belt.
So far the pants have been very waterproof, and, based on my other experiences with Arc'teryx gear I would expect them to remain so for a long time. One of the days i used them was in wetter snow and I stayed dry the entire time.
While there isn't true insulation, the shells are thick enough to offer a bit of protection against cold chairs, wind and snow (something that my Theta SV bibs don't) and feels like it's thick enough to be durable. The oversized boot cuffs patches feel very tough and haven't shown any scratches yet. Despite this, the pants still avoid being too heavy to hike in. I haven't had to use the side zips yet, but they seem large enough to be effective.
I love the large thigh pockets - they're easy to access when sitting or with a shell on and comfortably fit plenty of stuff.
Overall, these pants feel very solid and are comfortable. They probably won't be the best for hiking, but I'm planning on doing at least some touring in them and will be rocking them as my every-day resort pant.
What doesn't Arcteryx make that isn't top of the line quality. I love these pants. I have had them now for 2 seasons and hey have held up really well. The pants are unchanged in that time and still use the N80p-x goretex material. They are extremely warm if layered appropriately and can also be worn on the warmest days. I love the large vents on these pants and the loose fit. If you plan on hiking mainly then you may want a pant with a slimmer fit but I have hiked a ton in these and find no problems with the looser cut. Waterproof as always since they are goretex and the shell fabric has held up better than expected. They are much softer and do not make the swish swish sound when you walk like goretex pro shell does. I love the large pockets on them and the built in waist belt helps you achieve the best fit possible. I expect I will not need a new pair of pants for quite a while with how well these are holding up.
these are fantastic. the soft shell gives a thin insulating layer. for the really drastic weather i'd recommend layering. they were fine as is for me. it wasn't too cold and i was moving fast. 6.1 215# 36 waist. i have the large. the waist and length is perfect. they are a little extra baggy. It's fine with me. others may like them a tighter fit. the extra deep pockets are a nice change from the other arc'teryx pants and bibs. built in gaiters help keep snow out. would be better if they had a clip to grab the shoelaces. the vent zip is on the back.. remember to zip it up before you sit down! They were fantastic for the last few days of freezing rain. my new favorite pants. enjoy!

This piece is amazing. I wanted to get a pant that was a little more baggy and relaxed to fit the new freeriding style, and these are awesome. The squid ink color is sick, and it goes great with my orange sidewinder sv top. The powder skirt interface system is awesome for keeping out snow. Big thigh vents for those times when your legs need to dump heat from those quad burning mogul runs. Have handled everything I have thrown at them, from trees to deep powder. Favorite ski pant I have ever had.
These are the shiz nizzle. I use them for snowboarding. I previously used Burton 3L Gore pants. The material on these are far superior than others I have used or tried on. I am 6'3" and purchased the XL. They are a bit baggy but that is how I like them. If you are looking for a pair to hike with, I would size down. I also added a better belt to their stretch belt. I honestly can not imagine there is a better pant for ski/snowboard use.
I love the fabric that these are made of, burly Gore-Tex pro with a inside face fabric. They are awesome.
Thigh vents, minimalist. I am excited to connect the slide and lock system with my caden jacket. It should make a bomb proof one piece like two piece system.
The baggy style is in and will also make me a little less dorky. Since I foot and long these will shorten me a bit. Not the reason I have them but a definite plus.
Arc quality guarantees satisfaction
First of all I have a 38" waist and I bought these in an XL, and I have PLENTY of extra room as they fit pretty big. Throw a belt on and you're set to shred. I bought last years yellow color and they get a little dirty easier. I came off of arcteryx bibs of 7 seasons and finally wanted something more relaxed fitting. The goretex is great as you would expect from any Arcteryx product. Overall I really enjoy the pants!
I fell pretty bad last week in my Sabre pants - enough to cut both knees as I tumbled down a choke that got too tight. Long story short, my Sabre pants were unscathed. I thought they would be shredded, but they came out looking like new. I'm sold for life...
I used it for ski in Whistler and Cypress. Most snow of condition in Whistler is powder and wet. But I never wet insider,moreover, the water will drain quickly from the surface of pants. So when I go pack to car or restaurant,it still day .100%for recommendation.
So, you took the old baggy-cut Arcteryx Stingray pants and removed the insulation? And you're calling them the Sabre pants? Ok, that's fine...
Seriously, maybe it's the fact that I spend so much time in my Theta mountaineering bibs that all the other Arcteryx bottoms feel like they're cut for 14yo snowboarders - which was me, 20 years ago. But these are cut so baggy through the legs that I feel like they're going to flap in the wind behind me! They're the right waist and length, but other than that they feel like they're 3 sizes too big.
And the ankle openings are so big they cover my entire snowboard boot - and all but the toe of my AT ski boots. I'm going to give them another try, but they got so much powder up the leg last time that I swapped out at lunch for some other pants!
Beyond that, the side zips, pockets, belt, and fabric weight are dead on. The lack of insulation is perfect for me, I run hot and like to pick my own level of insulation anyway. I just want to take these in to a tailor and get about 4 inches out of the leg diameter.
Disclosure: I occasionally receive and test GoreTex products through the Gore-sponsored MountainTechs and HuntingTechs programs. This was one of those items, but that didn't affect my review.
I understand these are labeled as relaxed, but they are so straight and baggy it was a joke to me. I really like the cargo side pockets, as well as having two hip pockets. The belt is good, but supplying your own would be a good idea. I could not live with the fit of the pants overall, just not even remotely good looking or practical to me. Not to say someone wouldn't like this, just my opinion.
I returned these because the cut was way off for me. I'm 5'9" 210 with a 34 waist and 32/33 inseam. The Medium Saber pants fit in the waist but were tight in the thighs yet super bulky and long from the knees down.
There are some mixed reviews on these pants, mostly coming down to the style and fit so thought I'd throw my $0.02. As a preface, I ski 90% backcountry and 10% resort. I'm about 6' 160 lbs. Finally, I sometimes review products for GoreTex through a program called Mountain Techs.
Overall I like these pants for skiing at the resort, but the fit makes them difficult for _me_ to use in the backcountry. Too bad because otherwise they are a fantastic pant.
I'm personally a big fan of GoreTex proshell fabric which these pants use because of its durability and breathability, even it sounds like you're wearing a paper grocery bag. Arcteryx also did a great job on seems, zippers etc. Aside from quality, my favorite part of these pants are the enormous pockets. I can easily stow an avalanche beacon, snacks, camera and even my thermometer which I like easy access to. The other really nice feature on these pants are the boot gators which is easy to slide up and down when fussing with buckles during a transition (as opposed to the gator on the Arcteryx Theta bibs that have a metal hook and snag on things).
Biggest complaints are the fit. They are definitely baggy. I don't mind being in fashion but I do find they can make kick turns difficult because of the low crotch. To make this worse, the belt is elastic so its hard to really snug down over my skinny frame. I'm told Arcteryx will replace provide a static belt if you ask for it. The pants also have side/thigh vents but I find they are a little small when I'm working hard on the up track.... making those a little longer would help quite a bit.
Overall - this pant lives up to the Arcteryx and GoreTex names in quality and performance. They are definitely stylish but it seems to come the cost of functionality, at least for me in the backcountry. But still a great resort pant.
