When you choose Arc'teryx, you're choosing more than just some of the best outdoor gear planet earth has to offer, your choosing commitment to technology, durability, and environmental stewardship. That said, you're really, really choosing some of the best gear on planet earth. Arc'teryx uses the most advanced fabrics in their jackets and outdoor gear to keep hard core climbers and trekkers comfortable, safe, and warm in even the most brutal alpine environments.
Arc'teryx technical jackets, like the acclaimed Theta AR hardshell jacket or the Alpha LT jacket, provide a lightweight outer layer that's as waterproof and wind resistant as can be, thanks to fantastic GORE-TEX Pro Shell fabric technology. Arc'teryx goes the extra mile (or kilometer, since they're a Canadian company) to make a good jacket great. You'll find the little things, like no-lift gusseted underarms and articulated elbows, make the biggest difference in a technical jacket. Roomier and longer cuts make Arc'teryx hardshell jackets the whip for layering in cold temperatures.
Speaking of layering, don't miss the Arc'teryx Covert Cardigan for middleweight insulation in cold weather conditions. The Covert Cardigan is made from quick drying, highly breathable Polartec ThermalPro fleece, so it's basically the best thing that ever happened to fleece jackets. The Arc'teryx Covert Hoody gives you the same Polartec ThermalPro insulated goodness, plus a hood for extra warmth.
You probably could have already guessed that Arc'teryx gear is just as superb as Arc'teryx outerwear. Climbers of all stripes appreciate the comfort and durability of an Arc'teryx climbing harness. Arc'teryx harnesses are lightweight, super-duper strong, and designed to provide comfort for anything from trad climbing to alpine mountaineering. Little known fact: the first product manufactured by Arc'teryx was a harness, and it was a huge hit in the climbing world.
Serious backpackers trust Arc'teryx packs for their durability and comfort. Check out Arc'teryx daypacks like the Arc'teryx Cierzo 18 or Arc'teryx Fly 13. These lightweight technical daypacks hold your necessities for a day hike or a climb without restricting your movement or weighing you down. For a serious multi-day hike, you're going to need a serious multi-day pack. That's where Arc'teryx packs really excel. Comfortable, lightweight, and water resistant, the award winning Arc'teryx Bora 95 pack has features galore and space enough for expedition size loads.
