The Arc’teryx Men’s Stinger Bib is a heavy duty ski bib for backcountry adventures. The Stinger Bib is made with Gore-Tex Pro fabric, 3 Layer, for maximum durability and waterproof/breathable performance. The Cordura at the cuffs and Keprotec instep patches kick up the durability even further, to protect against boots, edges, and ice you may run into. The high bib extends far into your jacket to prevent any snow coming down your back in a fall or wind blowing upwards. Pockets with volume pleats are available at the thigh and top of the bib for anything you need to keep close-by. A Recco reflector is hidden but ever-present in case of avalanche emergency. Time to see what the mountains have to offer.
If you get buzzed over the pursuit of technical first descents, trust the Arc'teryx Men's Stinger Bib to look after your lower extremities. Rough and tumble nylon wears a smooth poker face but can stand up to the abuse of weeklong tours and days full of nothing but tricks and flips and cliffs. Gore-Tex Pro fabric is guaranteed waterproof, guaranteed breathable, and stands up to all the daily abuse you can dish out. With the bib's streamlined Expedition fit, extra high bib, and large-volume thigh pockets, you’ll be making first tracks in that honey bucket of a couloir before anyone at work notices you’ve flown the hive.
Extra-large nylon yarns are tightly woven together to create a slick, abrasion-resistant surface. It's not non-stop squats and extra-large thighs that cause this bib to whisper while you walk. Nylon is rigid, and per the Arc'teryx engineers, a little rasp for your rail-riding means your pants are almost as tough as you are. The Gore-Tex Pro 3L laminate lets hot air escape without letting the snowfall it. When you're kicking your way up the mountain, side zips open up for rapid cooling or simply to show a little leg.
Anatomical design and articulated knees give you freedom of movement for easier uphill charges. The ergonomic 3-dimensional patterning lets you layer as needed without puffing out the pant profile. Kaprotec instep guards and Cordura cuffs protect the pant from crampon teeth, boot bruises, and sharp edges. The bib gives your belly a bit more protection than a jacket alone, and all but eliminate the chances you'll share a, um, vertical grin with your ski buddies.

I got these pants for my father for Christmas- he's an avid skier and demands quality out of his touring gear. He's 5'11 and about 160 lbs- so very tall and skinny. I got the size M, and the inseam on them was great- as well as the fit through the waist. However, the bib-fit part was just plain weird. The bib flap fits skin tight halfway up your torso- hard to get full movement in, and definitely not what he was looking for to tour in. I ended up returning these, and will be getting the regular Stinger instead. The quality of the pants is supreme- just not a fan of those bibs!
