    I've tried on an absurd amount of pants since creating this thread. So far the closest have been a pair of Arc'teryx Sabre LTs from the outlet. Just missing a beacon pocket but everything else is perfect. Fit is the best for me.

    That's good that you found some pants! I'll try to remember to come back and post my thoughts on the HH pants once I have a chance to ski in them, in case anyone else checks this thread out looking for ideas.

    Now admittedly they're a burlier fabric than than the Sabre LT and certainly more spendy, but the Rush pant seems to have the other features you're looking for, including decent sizes front facing pockets that fit a beacon, snacks, etc. Probs too small for a beer though...

    I may or may not have a pair of rush pants arriving in the mail soon, with the looser of the fit off to be returned Couldn't find any in a local store to compare.

    Who Makes The Perfect Hardshell Ski Pants?

    Please circle back with a comparison. Iím looking at both due to an Arcíteryx credit.

    I definitely want to know which has the looser fit. Cuz. Covid.

    Right on! Also curious to hear how you figure they compare with some of the others. I previously used the Beta SV for many years and find the Rush a slightly more tailored fit.

    Rush arrived today and are the winners!

    Rush vs Sabre LT Fit: The rush are a bit looser with similar length.
    The pockets on the rush are on the thigh as opposed to normal hand pockets for the sabre. Neither will fit a beer comfortably.
    The vents on the rush are longer.

    The rush material feels much beefier (regular goretex vs gore-pro) along with the patches on the inside of the ankles to protect against ski edges + crampons.

    Both are fantastic pants but I am sticking with the rush due to the heavier materials. I got six years and hundreds of days on my old pants and would like to continue the trend of simply not having to worry about this piece of gear when I put it on. I also like the color of the rush pants I was able to get better than the sabres.

    Other contenders:

    Mammut haldigrat. They were sweet but unfortunately too long on me. The short size was too baggy.

    Patagonia Powslayer. Again too long, the pockets were too small for me along with the vents.

    Rab Men's Khroma Kinetic. My second favorite besides the arc models. Trimmest fit and best pocket layout. But inseam was the longest of the bunch.

    For reference I am 5'5" 135lbs with a 30" inseam, which is why its so hard to find stuff that fits me well. A lot of people will not have fit problems with any of the pants mentioned above if you are an average height with a normal inseam.

    Good feedback. Thanks for posting this. I just replaced my Theta AR with a Rush jacket. Pants are next, though my Patagonia Primos (like cordura XCR) are still kicking. Was debating Rush, Sabre, or Powslayer.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.
