Comments about Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib Pants:

These are great bibs! I am 6'-5" and 200 pounds. I purchased the XL-Tall. They are slightly loose around my torso but the length is perfect. The bibs are light-weight and very comfortable. The Gore-Tex pro shell fabric is waterproof and very breathable. Full length zippers on the legs add extra breathability when needed. If I had one suggestion, it would be to add extra pocket capacity. I test products for Gore and these are by far my favorite ski pants! Nice job Arc'teryx!!

Comments about Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib Pants:

Overall I have been very pleased with my Arc'teryx Theta SV Bibs, and have considered purchasing a second pair for when the day comes that my first pair needs to be retired.
Activities: I have used these bibs for many mountaineering trips, ice climbing trips, and countless days of skiing.

Fit: I love the fit of the bibs. I am 155 lbs., 5'-9" tall and have a 30" waist, and 30" inseam. I bought a size medium, and have found the fit to be great.
Function: There are many aspects of these bibs that I really like. One of those features are the full length side zips, which I often partially zip down from the top when looking for extra ventilation. The built in gaiters are also very effective at helping keep snow out.
Waterproofness/breathability: I've tried various types waterproof material, and have not found a product that does a better job keeping the water out while also being breathable than Gore-Tex. The fact that these bibs are made with Gore's most durable and rugged waterproof breathable fabric (Gore-Tex Pro), makes these bibs very capable to withstand the hard ware-and-tear I expose them to.
Durability: I have had these bibs for over 3 years, and they still perform like they did when they were new. Just remember that like any Gore-Tex waterproof fabric, it does need to be maintained properly (i.e. cleaned and treated with DWR).
Construction: Superb, which is consistent with any other Arc'teryx product I've seen or owned.

These are a great pair of bibs that whether it is a bitter cold day of ice climbing, or a warm spring day of skiing, they are my go-to shell.
As a disclaimer, I am a "Gore MountainTech" and test products for Gore.

  • Quality Material

Cons

  • A Little Noisy

Best Uses

  • Ski touring

Comments about Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib Pants:

I received a pair of these bibs a few seasons ago as part of a GORE-TEX product testing program. Since then, I've put them through the ringer, primarily skiing but also using them for occasional rainy day hikes and even a few cold-weather river trips.
Overall, I've been pleased with these pants. I like the bibs for skiing, and the built-in waist band makes it easy to drop the bib part down if I'm skinning or don't need them.
Durability has been good, although I did develop a few small tears in the knees (probably from kneepads and telemarking). The bottom cuff reinforcements have kept ski edges from damaging the material at all.
These pants offer great storm protection - I've stayed dry in water and wind, even when friends up getting soaked. All the zippers seal well and the bibs offer a bit of extra protection from water dripping down your back. Even the coldest, gustiest winds don't stand a chance.
The weight (or lack thereof) and lack of insulation makes these great for touring, although there are some extra cold days at the resort that I wouldn't mind a thicker/warmer shell. It's not really an issue as long as I plan ahead and layer well.
These are definitely a pair of swishy pants, and people will hear you coming.
I don't love the two pockets - they're a little small for anything large than keys, a phone and maybe a snack bar, and they can be difficult to get at when you have a jacket and pack on.
Fit is slimmer, like much of Arcteryx's line. Great for skiing, skinning and moving around.
All in all, great pants. Like all of Arcteryx gear, you'll pay more but you'll get more.

Comments about Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib Pants:

I have used these for winter mountaineering and backcountry skiing. The fabric is thin but has been really durable when skiing through the trees. I really like the pockets on the bid for storing small items.

The only issue I have with the pants is that the cuffs are really tight around my ski boots. On the bright side, no snow gets in.

I am 5'11" a 180lbs with a 34" waste and a large fits good.

    Comments about Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib Pants:

    These Arc'teryx bibs go with me on all my ski trips. I ski a lot in the spring and even in warm weather I wear these because the side zippers open up and they breath real well. I fall a lot and these are tough enough to hold up. The from pockets are located above the hip strap on my backpack, so my GPS and phone are in there for easy access. I go out in all kinds of weather and I never ski without these.
