The Arc'teryx Sabre AR is a serious big-mountain pant designed for high-intensity use in deep powder and on steep lines. The Sabre AR is waterproof and windproof so you stay dry and warm during storm days. Multiple pockets provide easy storage solutions, and thigh vents help you dump heat during your time on the skintrack.
3-layer GORE-TEX delivers waterproof, breathable protection WaterTight zippers for complete waterproof coverage Adjustable belt offers a secure, comfortable fit Reinforced cuffs resist wear and tear from ski edges and boots Durable Water Repellent (DWR)
DWR is a fabric treatment that improves the water-repellency of the outer layer of the material, while maintaining its breathability.
GORE-TEX is an extremely thin membrane that’s durably waterproof, windproof, and breathable. It has over 9 billion pores per square inch that are each 20,000 times smaller than a water drop, but 700 times larger than water vapor. This means that rain won’t get through the membrane, but that perspiration vapor can escape. Different iterations of this basic membrane principle are used in a variety of products throughout the outdoor industry.
RECCO Rescue System is a two-part technology. Ski resorts and mountain rescue teams carry RECCO detectors, which send out a search signal. RECCO reflectors worn in clothing bounce back a directional signal that directs the rescuer straight to the reflector. Unlike other technologies, multiple RECCO reflectors on a person can improve detection.
WaterTight™ zippers are urethane-coated, highly durable, and smooth closures that offer waterproof protection, but with significantly less bulk and weight than conventional weatherproof zippers.
