Our neighbors to the north, Arc’teryx has been building the finest outerwear, packs, and ski gear in Vancouver, B.C. since the early ‘90s. Their gear is high end, proven by the obsessive attention to detail they pour into everything they make. They say they’re trying to pursue perfection, and we say they’re getting damn close. They design and test all their gear in Canada’s cold, wet, technical Coast Range Mountains, so you know it will hold up anywhere you take it. Northwest roots and a dedication to perfection make us fans of Arc’teryx.
Arc'teryx Inspired Design
Arc’teryx is always on the edge of innovation in their technical, high-performance outerwear, constantly tweaking their technology. They invented watertight zippers, a godsend in Northwest winters, as well as a plethora of fabrics that keep you warm and dry. They are the brand Gore-Tex® chooses to partner with to test cutting edge laminates, and they do all of their designing and manufacturing in house, so they can work on something until they get it exactly right. This year, look for more urban inspired pieces, revamped GORE-TEX® hardshells, and ergonomically-cut outerwear that will move with you in the backcountry.
