Designed to handle the demands of aggressive skiers on- or off-piste, the Sabre AR pants are waterproof-breathable and ruggedly built. Long thigh vents let you dump heat during high energy chair laps and bootpacks, while the roomy fit accommodates multiple layers for cold descents. A warm flannel backer provides additional insulation against icy blasts on the chairlift and the front zip, underarm vents and pockets all feature water-resistant zippers. The overall build quality is top-notch, with durable kick patches, tight seam tolerances and articulated construction that won't hold you back on the down or the up.

Fabric waterproof rating
The standard test for waterproof fabrics uses a standing column filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A rating of 3,500mm or higher can be considered waterproof. The higher the rating, the more durable the waterproof fabric will be over time.
Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.

Fabric active breathability
The rate at which a waterproof breathable fabric expels moisture when the inner surface is moist from perspiration. Values under 8,000g/m2/24h provide low performance, 20,000g/m2/24h provide moderate performance and values over 30,000g/m2/24h provide high performance.
A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
