Excellent product..
January 09, 2012

I have owned several arcteryx products over the years and these pants have lived up to the brand reputation. Excellent choice! My only gripes are that it is always difficult to find the color and size combo I want because they are so popular. The larges are a bit too big in the waist and short in the leg. The large/tall are too long.

Mens Stingray Pants - regular
February 23, 2013

Just what I was looking for! I am 6'1" and weigh 184 pounds, and the size large -regular fit is perfect. At my size, I still have some extra room around the waist, but the attached webbing belt allows for a quick and easy adjustment. This prevents the need for packing along an additional belt. There is still plenty of room in the legs for an extra base layer, without any restriction in movement. The side vents are key for cooling off. The pants are light weight and durable, typical of Arc'teryx products. The hand pockets are spacious, and their zippers do an excellent job keeping the moisture out. The Men's Stingray Pants have lived up to their expectations on my most recent ski trip. These waterproof pants will certainly be making my next hiking trip to Alaska this year!

Best Ski Pants Ever! !
January 24, 2011

Windproof and waterproof, what more could you ask for. A lot less bulk than other pants and there isn't any need to worry about a wet seat on snowy ski lifts ever again! I have nothing bad to say about these pants, period. 100% satisfied!

I wish Arcteryx would sponsor me, but I landscape
September 19, 2011

I've got a bunch of Arcteryx stuff. And every piece of gear I have is awesome. They use superior materials, innovative ideas, and top-notch quality to make the best gear in the world. And of course the Stingray pantalones are in that category. They are made from Gore-Tex softshell material. But they are not a typical softshell pant. They are made with softshell material, but they have the Gore Tex membrane which means they are completely waterproof and windproof and a little bit breathable. Only a few companies make this kind of waterproof breathable softshell, but I really like them and Arcteryx makes the best. I own the Alpha SV and the Crossbow Jacket and while I really like both, I prefer the material of the Crossbow more. It just feels nicer to me. So the Stingray pants are waterproof/breathable and are made from awesome softshell material, but that's not all. The smaller features really make this an awesome piece of gear. First, the Keprotec they put on the cuff at the bottom is a great idea. Keprotec is a very durable material which will help keep the bottoms from fraying or tearing. The also have the waterproof zippers for the front pockets and they have a RECCO device. One minor complaint, the material is made from the 510 NP softshell material. I would have liked it if they made a pant with the thicker 800NP material like they used with the Crossbow jacket. The thicker material would definitely add to their durability. But I'm not complaining to much because I got them for 50% off at Altrec!

Great Ski Pants
January 02, 2012

My husband got these pants for our ski trip in Whistler, Canada. They fit like pants (they are not bulky or shapeless), which he really appreciated. He is a pretty big guy (6'/210lbs) and large fit him perfectly, true to the size. Pants are not insulated, but with a base layer he was warm and dry skiing all day, despite wind, heavy snow and a few falls. Overall, great ski pants. The quality and craftsmanship is very good and I think these pants will stay with us for a while. We originally ordered Nightshade (grey) but they had blue-ish undertone and didn't go with the rest of his outfit so we returned them and got a black pair.

Beautifully made. Probably would pick black to go with red. Much better than last years version. Vents on thighs help with air flow. The pants have protection from ski edge cuts.

Predictably Excellent Arcteryx product
December 21, 2010

The Stingray pant is already one of my favorite ski pants. It is made with one of the softshell GORE-TEX® fabrics that is not noisy but provides excellent waterproof protection. It is also quite warm. The pants fit true to size (I am 5'8", 175 lbs, 33" waist) and although they seem to be cut slightly slimmer than some in-house brands from retail sports stores, they still move well as you ski and move around in them. I like that they come with a built in belt rather than velcro to tighten or loosen the pant a bit, as Velcro always gets messy over time. They also have belt loops if you want to use a wider fabric belt with them. The pant leg has a very durable elastic hem built in, which I find easier to put over a boot than other designs that use a zipper or button. As expected, all of the inside seams are waterproof taped and sealed, and the interior fabric is very soft and silky, making them easy to slip on and off. Finally, the Recco avalanche rescue system is built into the leg, which adds an extra reassurance in case you do back country skiing. Overall an excellent ski pant, worth the price.

Good, Solid Pants
December 15, 2009

Skied in these half a dozen times - last time out I wiped out on an extremely icy steep section and rolled/slid/flipped 75 - 100 meters down hill through exposed tree parts and some rocks. Ouch! Pants are rock solid, no damage. I like suspenders so I attach some of the clamp on variety. Sometimes I wish they had more pockets, and sometimes I'm glad they don't. No zips or Velcro on the snow gaiter either which is what I like.

March 21, 2009

Awesome , durable, warm even without being lined. Had only one base layer underneath and was comfortable skiing in a 16" snowstorm in Utah ! I Would definitely recommend these.

Exactly what I was looking for.
December 08, 2010

I had two problems with my old ski pants, too baggy and too warm. I mostly ski Tahoe where you seldom need any insulation, but I still want a nice water proof shell with powder cuffs. Also, I wanted something slimmer fitting than most of the stuff on the market right now. This pant is exactly what I needed. It is my first Arc'teryx product and the price is a little hard to swallow if you tend to be more of a bargain hunter (only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5) but the build quality and fabrics are top notch and I am sure they are going to hold up for a long time. So in the end they will likely prove a decent value. I was suprized to find the Recco reflector as I didn't remember reading that in any of the descriptions. Overall, I am very happy with the pruchase and excited to bury them in powder this winter. I am a 33 waist 32 inseam and the medium fits nicely.

I got these pants to replace my insulated ski pants and I must say, why did I wait so long? Not carrying extra weight makes a big difference throughout the day and the build quality and protection from wind/moisture are second to none.

Great pants for all seasons
December 24, 2009

I've been skiing for around forty yrs and Arc'teryx is the best fitting and best feeling ski pants I've worn. Also Gor-tex is the best for all types of weather.

It's amazing pants! good Q! nice shape!

Great Pants
January 24, 2010

It was between the stingray and the patagonia powder bowl pants. The stingray is just a soft shell whereas the patagonia has a lining and some addt'l insulation. I decided on the Stingray because it fit better, not too much material and just the right length. I felt totally warm on a 30 degree day with just 1 lightweight baselayer underneath. Love the pants, so comfortable and lightweight.

Unfortunately too big
November 22, 2010

These pants are really very nice. I would describe them as bomb proof. Arcteryx doesn't make inexpensive clothing, but this is a perfect example of getting what you pay for. Unfortunately for me, they were simply too big and I had to return them. I will certainly consider these pants again when I find the right size.

Great softshell pant
March 02, 2011

These are great softshell pants and definitely consistent with the typical amazing quality standards of Arcteryx. The workmanship is pretty awesome, the seams and stitching are top notch. I've actually never seen outerwear products with the same attention to detail as Arcteryx. The cut of these pants is also great. They take the trouble and added cost to produce a more anatomical fit even though it requires more complex shapes and stitching. The knees are articulated, etc. and that greatly helps the fit. Another key feature for me is the lack of velcro. YAY! I've grown to hate velcro on my gear. I hate the sound, the rough texture, the way it sticks unaligned, or to other velcro areas when moving around. I hate how it gets covered in lint or fuzzed and no longer works, and I hate how it destroys my thermal underwear or snags delicate fabrics. BUT! No velcro on these pants. The waist and bottom designs are great. Speaking of the bottom cuff, it's pretty much perfect. I moved to these from an old pair of top of the line North Face GoreTex XCR pants but their cuff was ludicrously complex involving multiple zippers, snaps, layers of fabric, long strips of velcro, etc. A total mess and annoyance every time I wanted to put on/take off boots. The Stringray pant is great - just a simple stretch inner cuff with a metal hook to stretch down and grab the laces or boot top, plus an outer protective layer. My one negative comment is that if you don't properly set the metal hook in a proper place and let it hang lose, it will tend to fall between the front of your foot and the boot and hurt badly, forcing you to clip it. I also liked the quiet, comfortable feeling of the softshell fabric compared to hardshell materials such as XCR or ProShell. I felt like I could wear these pants out to drink beer and eat pizza after skiing while I tend to want to remove my hardshell pants. There were two things I didn't like about them, that led to my exchanging them for the Arcteryx Sidewinder Pants, which are almost an identical design but made of Goretex ProShell instead of softshell. First, the length is unusually long and they don't make a short version of the Stingray pant. I'm 6' tall, 180 lbs, medium build and typically wear 30" inseam pants with a 36" waist. These pants have nice adjustable waist size system but the medium is best for people with a 32" waist so it can be adjusted a bit up or down. 34-36 waist really need a large but these have a 32" inseam, which is pretty long. I also think ski pants should be a bit shorter since I don't like the extra fabric bunched on my boots nor do I like to be tripping and stepping on the bottom of the pants if I take my boots off or when I'm putting them on. The Sidewinder pant has a 30" inseam "short" version to fit short 6' tall people like myself. :) The second thing that didn't work for me is that the pants GoreTex Softshell fabric is significantly thicker and warmer than XCR or ProShell. And these pants lack zip vents, presumably because the softshell is so breathable that they are not needed. That wasn't the case for me. I was too hot and wanted vents, another reason I switched to the Sidewinder pants. The inside of the Stingray pants is nice feeling (unlike ProShell or XCR) so maybe the intent is that you shouldn't wear a baselayer. But I don't like to wash my expensive GoreTex gear very often and count on that baselayer to absorb most of the sweat. So I don't like the idea of wearing the Stingray pants without a baselayer and having direct skin/sweat contact with the fuzzy inside of the GoreTex Softshell. So I was marginally too warm on even moderate temperature days and I would have been seriously overheated on a warm ski day. I do tend to be warm so people who tend to be cold may love the extra insulation and never need vents. But I think they should have included the vents anyway. I love how simple, clean, elegant, and minimalistic Arcteryx designs usually are so I'm sure it was that philosophy that caused them to not include vents here. Overall, these are beautifully made pants and will be a great solution for people who want a more warm pant and can get the right combination of waist and inseam size.

I live in New Zealand. Its a moderate climate when its comes to skiing. So a shell is generally the way to go here.These pants are great. Top quality, and they do the job they are designed for. Only one issue, and its nothing really. They are a bit noisey when moving. Very light weight as well.

Stingraay Pants

This is a great shell. Liner allows for smooth entry over base layers. No frills or unnecessary pockets, etc. Fit is absolutely perfect in Medium. I am 5'11" and 175 and generally wear 34 waist and 30 length. These almost feel custom fitted. If you are a 32 or 33 waist, the belt adjustment will work well.

Near perfect ski pants
December 29, 2009

Got three days in them so far, and have to say they fit and work far better than my previous approach of wearing jeans w/ a hard shell over them. I do need to now find a heavier layer to wear as a smartwool mid weight and below freezing makes it so my legs are a bit cool/cold. Just picked up an expeditionary weight layer from smartwool so hoping that will work for those lower temp ski days. Ok, so I couldn't find much about the gator that's built in to keep snow out, its an elastic cuff at the bottom w/ a hook, allows it to attach to the ski and keep it there so snow can't push is way over the boot and out of the pant. Works great. I own a hardshell jacket, 2 soft-shell jackets, and now these pants from arcteryx and they always live up to my expectations and sometimes exceed it. They are the only company keeping me from having to make my own gear to get this level of performance, fit, etc.


great pant...
February 07, 2010

These pants are very soft to the touch and don't become crinkly like the pro-shell does. A lite fleece liner keeps the chill away. They are a roomy cut great to ride in. Another fine Arc'teryx product, just wish they would have made them in black cause the blackbird is a strange color. I exchanged mine and got the black which goes better with my jackets...

Great pants!
November 28, 2009

These pants are the best I ever had. Great quality. Shipping worked excellent too!


December 24, 2010

Absolutely great pant! Although it fits larger, I still like it. Thanks to its Gore-Tex softshell materials, it could provide windproof, waterproof and breathable. Moreover, it is softer than other Gore-Tex pant. This new version looks cooler than old one.

Great fitting pants, not sure about durability

Very comfortable, not had the chance to ski with them. But perhaps not enough protection at cuffs to stop tears and cuts

best fitting ski pants
November 29, 2010

I have the arcteryx titan pants for cold weather and I wanted a soft shell pant for days when it is above 20 degrees. These pants are light and probably the most comfortable and best fitting ski pants I've ever had. At 6' and 160 the medium is a perfect fit. They are soft shell so they are not at all stiff - I even used them on cold, rainy days for golf.

Great choice...

Great pant - tight fit.
October 08, 2012

Another great product from Arcteryx. However - these have a very tight fit with zero insulation. A single layer of long underwear will fit under the pants but not much more. I am not sure these will work in January on a zero degree day. Other than that, perfect...

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

High tech, which is hard to see
February 21, 2008

I have skied three days in these pants. They are light and flexible and will require a few layers underneath, but because they are so light and flexible you still are better than anything I have skied in to date.
