Arc'teryx has become synonymous with the highest-quality clothing and outdoor equipment since it was founded in 1991. Its very first product, the revolutionary Vapour harness traded traditional stitching for state-of-the-art thermolamination technology, a technology that later set its second product, the Bora backpack, apart from all other packs. That wasn't enough though, because in 1998 Arc'teryx introduced a line of outerwear that set the standard for technical jackets and pants. Since its inception, this is a brand that has used quality and design to differentiate itself again and again.
Arc'teryx designs clothing and equipment for the most demanding climates on Earth. Only the best designs and highest quality materials are used. You'll find waterproof breathable laminates in areas where the heaviest precipitation hits a garment, such as the hood and the shoulders. In other areas, like the underarms, highly breathable, sweat-wicking materials pull moisture away from the skin. Whether it's a jacket, a shirt, a pair of pants, or a pair of gloves, the material is carefully and strategically chosen to do its job in that particular area of the garment.
Arc'teryx divides its line into six categories: Ascent, Whiteline, Endorphin, Traverse, 24, and Essentials. These collections, consisting of apparel, backpacks, and harnesses, are designed to make it easy to determine which product will best suit your activity.
Ascent, as the name implies, focuses on rock, ice, and alpine climbing. These garments and backpacks are designed to withstand the harshest climates while remaining extremely lightweight. Whiteline products focus on skiing and are broken into sub-collections designed around touring, big-mountain, and on-piste pursuits. Endorphin garments and equipment work best for folks who move fast in the backcountry, from trail runners to fitness junkies. Arc'teryx designed the Traverse line for hikers and trekkers who need to minimize pack weight and maximum moisture management. The 24 line products blur the line between outdoor-inspired performance and everyday living with style and comfort. The last collection, Essentials, is the most versatile, bringing high-performance, hard-wearing, reliable garments to a wide range of outdoor athletes.
Whatever your athletic pursuit, Arc'teryx offers a piece of high-performance clothing solution for your need or a selection of gear that sets the standard for quality. Using innovative design, quality craftsmanship, and the finest materials available, Arcteryx has earned a reputation as one of the world's leading gear and outerwear manufacturers.
