Arc’Teryx Stingray Pant Review
Pant Size: M
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: The Arc’Teryx Stingray Pant has a 3-layer Gore-Tex construction that offers solid protection from wet weather. Gore-Tex is tried and true, and is typically considered the top of the industry for water-proofing. Breathability is also on the higher end, but not quite as good as fabrics like eVent or Dry Q Elite. This would be just about perfect for the resort, but not quite as good for backcountry skiers.
Fit: The Arc’Teryx Stingray Pant has an athletic fit that is true to size. I like Arc’Teryx Athletic fit because it is articulated in all the right areas without being overly loose. It’s not quite as tight as you might expect for an athletic fit, but the fit is all about mobility. The small was just about perfect for me, but if you’re my size and I like a loose fit, the medium would work well.
Warmth: The Arc’Teryx Stingray Pant has a soft brushed lining on an outer shell. It feels warmer than most standard shells, but the lining really provides minimal insulation. This would be a great pant for those who run ab it warmer, or for those who don’t mind layering underneath when the temperatures drop.
Features: The Arc’Teryx Stingray Pant is a pretty standard shell, but comes with all the features you’ll need for a day at the resort. They have solid waterproofing and breathability along with fully sealed seems, and water resistant zippers. The Stingray has outside thigh vents, articulated knees, adjustable belt, and two hand warming pockets. They also have a hidden RECCO reflector.
Bottom Line: The Arc’Teryx Stingray Pant is a very solid resort shell. It’s great for those skiers that need top of the line tech and like the standard features you get with Arc’Teryx.
