I have been skiing my whole life. I'm not really a ski bum but I have always been a man of modest means. Now, I've finally reached a point where I can afford Arcteryx clothing. I bought myself a Stingray jacket and love it - but I can't find a pair of pants to go with it. I have tried the Stingray pants, Theta AR bib, Sabre pants, and Stinger bib but none of them fit. I am really trying to like the Stinger bib, as it has just about everything I want. But what's with the huge bubble butt? Seriously, I look like some kind of Cirque du Soleil clown when I wear them. All of the pants I listed above have this same problem except the Sabre but the Sabre is the kind of pant meant to be worn below my butt, expose my underwear and make me look like another kind of clown. I'm too old for that.
Is it just me or do others have this same experience with Arcteryx? All I'm really looking for is a quality pair of Gore Tex shell pants, plain black (just black - no flashy colored stitching, zippers, highlights, etc.) and preferably with cargo pockets and a conservative logo. Too much to ask? Any other suggestions?
