Arcteryx has set the bar for high-end performance outerwear. In addition to the prehistoric bird on their logo, clean design and athletic fit are trademark features of Arcteryx clothing. They achieve their high standards in design and performance through dedication to high quality, innovative materials and ideas. They also happen to own their own manufacturing facility, which allows them broad latitude for innovation. Arcteryx designs to athlete needs and their products utilize activity-specific patterning to maximize performance and comfort. From waterproof zippers to welded seam technology, Arcteryx creates designs and ideas that become industry standards.
If skiing and climbing are your passion, Arcteryx shells offer the best in three-layer waterproof and breathable performance with GORE-TEX® PRO SHELL and WINDSTOPPER® fabrics. All Arcteryx shells are designed with backpack and harness compatibility in mind. Their ski shell pockets are climbing skin compatible and backpack strap friendly, allowing easy access and functional storage while wearing your pack. Their shells are designed for skiers and climbers.
Arcteryx soft shell jackets have won awards from Outside Magazine and lead the soft shell category for style and function. The Arcteryx Gamma MX for men and women is an incredibly versatile soft shell for backcountry activities like skiing, hiking and climbing. Available in hooded and non-hooded models, the Gamma MX uses a stretch-woven material paired with articulated and athletic fit to create a jacket that moves with your body. Their soft shell models are full of performance features like:
Soft shell technology uses stretch-woven fabrics to create highly breathable and very weather resistant shells. Soft shells are not designed for full rain protection, but they are ideal for mixed precipitation and snow when you know you will remain active, cross-country skiing, hiking or ski touring. You will want a waterproof shell for full weather protection, but you will be amazed at how well an Arcteryx softshell performs in mixed conditions when you are active climbing or skiing. Arcteryx adds just enough pockets in all the right places. Their laminated arm pocket is a hallmark look in many of their different coats.
When it comes to warm insulated shells and parkas, Arcteryx uses the same high level of performance materials and designs found throughout their product line including:
ThermaTek™ and CoreLoft™ are proprietary insulation technologies. ThermaTek™ features a unique durable water repellant (DWR) finish on the insulation fibers to ensure that you stay warm and dry inside your insulated shell.
Not all fleece is created equal, and Arcteryx has worked with Polartec® to develop fleece that does not look like most outdoor fleece. ThermalPro® is a lightweight and fast-drying fleece material that looks more like wool than it does classic fleece material. The sweater-like knit and look of the Arcteryx fleece products gives them a distinct casual look, yet they retain the every bit of performance driven functionality found in all Arcteryx products.
