The classic Stingray pants from Arc'teryx have been upgraded to include side vents, colour matched instep patches and an improved, flattering fit. Comfortable and easy to wear, these GORE TEX Soft Shell pants offer a supple, soft to the touch face fabric and superb weather protection. Styled for on area use, Stingray Pants cut a clean, sleek silhouette with athletic ease. The benefit of GORE TEX fabric with 3L lo loft soft shell is the quiet, understated suppleness of the textile with its brushed flannel backer that provides light insulation. Windproof, waterproofbreathable winter protection that is functional yet easy to wear. Zippered hand pockets give the Stingray Pant a contemporary look and are large enough to provide functional, secure storage. Zippered thigh vents open to dump heat but prevent snow accumulation inside. Adjustable waist belt with snap closure sits close to the small of the back. Keprotec instep patches stand up against damage from boots and ski edges. Resistant to cuts, abrasion and wear, the insteps extend the life of the pant considerably. Internal snow cuffs prevent snow from getting inside boots. Nothing says you can't take the Stingray off piste or out ski touring, but it is warmer than a GORE TEX Pro pant because of the brushed flannel backer and it has less ventilation than a full side zip design. Quieter soft shell technology readily sheds snow, moisture and blocks wind.
