Arcteryx Stinger Bib Ski Pants

The Arc’Teryx Stinger Bibs are definitely not your average shell ski pants. No sir. First of all, they are made from the top of the line Gore-Tex Pro Shell material, guaranteed to keep you dry in the burliest storm, yet breathable for any backcountry excursion. There is no insulation whatsoever, so the bibs are super light. While they are not baggy, you can fit several layers underneath as need be for the coldest days. And when the temperature rises, you can get some air flowing with the outer thigh zippers. The pockets are well thought out, with 2 smaller pockets up top in the front and two larger cargo pockets above the knees. The thigh pockets are really roomy, yet they aren’t floppy like you see on snowboard cargo pants. Aside from snacks, hats and other accessories, I’ve fit a Gatorade bottle comfortably in there. At $450, these pants certainly are not cheap. However, they come with Arcteryx’s lifetime warranty and they are built to last. I’ve got over 100+ days in mine and they are still going strong. Another nice touch from Arc’Teryx, the pants come in short, tall and regular sizes. These are the first pair of ski pants I’ve had that don’t drag when I walk, but still keep the snow out of my boots.
