Arc’teryx is a Canadian brand that was created in North Vancouver in 1989 by local climber Dave Lane, who felt like he always needed better gear to tackle the tough conditions of the Canadian Coast Mountains. Originally called Rock Solid by its founder, the brand was focused on climbing gear at first, before becoming what it is today. The name officially became Arc’teryx when Jeremy Guard got in the picture and renamed the brand in 1991. Fun fact, the brand was named after the ARCHAEOPTERYX LITHOGRAPHICA, the first reptile/dinosaur to develop the feathers for flight.

Since then, Arc’teryx has become a leader in the outdoors tech gear world and even a streetwear icon, but is still deeply rooted in mountain activities like climbing, skiing, snowboarding, touring and hiking. The brand’s headquarters as well as the research and development facility named Arc’One are located straight in the middle of the Canadian Mountain Coast, allowing Arc'teryx to conceive products right where they can be put to the test in the toughest Winter conditions. To this day, intensive testing in the Canadian Mountain Coast is still one of the brand’s main pillars.

The fact that Arc’teryx’s main goal is to always enhance what already exists to make it reach its full potential allowed the brand to reach functionality levels that were unheard of before them. The use of Gore-Tex or other advanced premium materials, the field testing in tough conditions, the next-level craftsmanship going into each piece of clothing made as well as inspired and obsessive design aiming to reach insane level of quality, functionality and durability are key elements that made the brand what it is today. A passionate company that keeps creating products that offer simple solutions to complex challenges with timeless style to create the greatest outdoor experiences possible.

More than just really good jackets and outdoor gear, Arc’teryx also became one of the eco-friendliest brands in the world thanks to the products durability. All Arc’teryx products are designed with the most insane attention to details in order for it to last you a lifetime. Think about the amount of waste it would produce If everyone changed their jacket every year or two… Well, that’s exactly what Arc’teryx is trying to avoid with their extremely durable products.
