  • PSA Arcteryx Theta SV bibs on sale

    Here are some Goretex Pro Shell Theta SV bibs on sale. Use the discount code "boo" for an extra 20% off. Final price is $200 off regular retail.
    These are great bibs by the way, my first pair in Goretex XCR are still going strong after 8 years! I just sold them to a friend, and ordered a new pair at this spooky price..

    Thanks for the heads up...still over-priced but the discount helps take the sting off it. That's about what they should cost.
    Yay!...(Drool)

      Based on the way they fit the model it looks like they would do well at the old folks home. Do these have a rear dropper?

          but I don't see one in the pictures on EVO

          ps. just found this on the Arc'teryx web site
          Full Drop Bib

          A technical alpine classic, the Theta SV fit has a streamlined profile with an integrated elastic waist to hug the core keeping warmth in and snow and drafts out. Full drop-seat option does not require removing the suspenders and is compatible with harnesses.

            So..... they are a bit over $280. after the sale price plus the discount code,.... If I follow correctly?...

            I have SK bibs from a few years ago. I bought them on steepncheap.com. I got them for about $180. bucks which I considered a great deal. I guess $280 is a great price for these bibs, but they are WAAAAY overpriced at the $460. retail price. They are awesome bibs,... but jesus they cost a lot. BTW, my older bibs do NOT have a trap door in the seat (maybe the design has changed) they have a zipper fly in front and a velcro closure too.

            I have the older full coverage Arcteryx bibs (possibly the sabre bibs) with the full zippered trap door. (yes, that I got them on steepncheap) I don't like them as much as the SK bibs. I find the zippered trap door to be useless, because you still can't pull your long johns down effectively, and it's uncomfortable to have stiff zipper rubbing between your legs while you ski..

            The SK's are great... Still that's a crippling price... I am tempted,... but even the sale price of this **** is rediculous....
            the fall line is your friend.... resistance is futile

              But they'll get it because the tech weenies gotta have "the best"...how do we know it's the best? Because it's hyper expensive!

                Thanks for the info on the drop seat, I was really just joking in reference to old folks needing it. Surely they could have modeled the fit better at that price
                Too many clams for me, I finally wore out my North Face goretex pants after about 10 years that I got used for $50. Just picked up these: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/mam...colorFamily=09 for $125.

                  I had the Theta SK bib too. That's the pair I just sold to my friend, after 8 years of use. So that gave me some clams to buy these new ones.
                  I think these new ones have a full length side zip. SO the "drop seat" may just mean you can pull the side zips down, for the "drop seat". I have an older pair of the Theta SV bibs too, but they only have the side zips up to the hips, not all the way up.
                  I hope these new ones don't have a true drop seat; I had an old MEC pair with a "trap door" drop seat. They tended to leak water sitting on the wet chairs at Fernie!

                    I have had a pair for 8 years as well and they are still going strong. Mine do not have the drop-seat but it looks like they changed the configuration of the suspenders and now have a drop-seat:

                      These pants are the best - I had to ignore the price because they come in a short inseam - nothing like pants that fit perfectly.

                      I found a small tear in the knee in the Pinkham Notch parking lot last spring, no idea how it happened (knee pads) - sent them back and they patched them and returned them no charge, almost good as new - still waterproof, just a mark you can't see unless you get real close - but that is part of the deal when you buy Arcteryx. They stand by their stuff.

                        They do make exceptional quality gear and stand by their product... however, I thought I'd see just how far they would go with their "life-time warranty" and, after purchasing a new jacket from them a couple of month ago, I sent my old 2002 vintage (and well worn) jacket back to see if the warranty would cover the fabric delimitation that was starting to appear. This is the very reasonable and polite reply I received:

                        Hello,
                        We have inspected the your Gore-Tex jacket, men’s medium Theta LT in Stone. Unfortunately, we have determined that it is not covered under warranty. This garment shows extensive wear and the effects of age have lead to delamination. Additionally, many of the rips, tears, and abrasion throughout the jacket, especially on the back, underarm, and hip, are too deteriorated for repair.

                        I do apologize that your jacket is beyond repair and not covered under warranty. Please let me know if you would like us to return your jacket.

                        Warm Regards,

                        Denise Yuen

                          I too called Arc'teryx when I was thinking of having the side zips repaired on my older (2006) Theta SK bibs. Where the zips do up at the knee, (over my knee pads) the coil zipper is pulling away from the fabric for a few mm. When I identified myself as a telemarker, The arcteryx rep said "we don't warranty our gear for telemarkers". Ha!. He was just kidding.

                            I too sport Arcteryx because they come in Shorts. I'm not that short, but I do like to sag. Or maybe I have a long torso?

                            Manufacturers listen up! Make a short and a long. At least in a common sizes. Everybody isn't built the same i.e. has an enormous mid-section.
