What color pants go with this Arcteryx jacket?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

I have this jacket in this color:

 

 

What color ski/snowboard pants go with this.  I was thinking this color blue but maybe too blue?  I also have Black or Dark Grey pants.

Life's full of tough decisions.

Yellow or yellow-orange to maximize your visibility to others.

Gray if you're older, yellow if you're younger.   

 

Seems to be the trend anyway...

I would buy the exact same color pant in the Arcteryx pant.That would give you a nice clean look.

                                                                          or

I also see in a ski magazine this year of a new Arcteryx bib in grey. That would be a nice contrast.

Bright something ... like green or orange. We're talking flame orange or lime green, not shades of camo. Go bold or go home!

Absolutely, I had to buy orange pants and buy another POC helmet and have it painted orange to go with a blue jacket I bought. Good thing I got the jacket for 1/2 off...see how much money I saved...LOL

If they ain't white, they ain't right.

Yellow. But not fluorescent - a regular, duller yellow. Like the one on the left here. Or maybe the pink if you're feeling really, umm, sure of yourself. :cool

Yellow pants with the Blue jacket appeals to me. But hard to keep clean around those dirty nasty lifts.

I have the reverse - blue pants with a yellowish jacket that even has some cream colored area. I do get some marks on the jacket, probably more than a dark jacket would show. They generally clean up OK with a little scrub brush that gets into the shell material. Here's my usual get-up :

That's where pants like this come in handy ...

Look at a color wheel to see what goes with that color

I rock the navy arcteryx jacket with the orange arxteryx bibs. Solid fashion statement.

The exact complementary color for the jacket color is, I guess, a very dark orange (since it's dark blue) - but it really becomes brown. Here it is with the exact values from an online color wheel for the jacket and pants.

 

 

 

I suppose it goes well together, but kind of boring, if you ask me.

I call it camouflage (for old age) .

A color scheme similar to the one specified by the OP. It works.

Yellow if you want contrast, black if you like things low key.

should have made it a poll.

 

my vote......

Skiing fashion is coming back around to darker colors again. Just watch the freestyle tour there is hardly any neon now a days. I like an orangish brown color with that jacket. Grey would do nicely as well
