Founded by local climbers twenty-five years ago, Arc’teryx remains a gathering place of like-minded people. Arc’teryx Design Centre is a hive, a hands-on think tank of active designers, materials experts, pattern makers and product developers who know what they want, how it will be used and why it has to work.
At Arc’teryx, the goal is to create equipment that enables a person be immersed in the moment of doing, regardless of external conditions. Simple solutions to complex challenges; this is the essence of minimalism and our philosophy of design. Reducing the effects of weather, streamlining use, and moving efficiently creates a timeless, outdoor experience.
Based as much on art as on science, good design is the result of instinct, discipline and discovery. They have an engineering team with the ability to the create tools that allow for new construction techniques. At their own Vancouver factories, in addition to manufacturing products, they can test ideas and prototype constructions so we can bring true innovation to market.
Products that are as good as they can possibly be, performing over time and beyond expectation, this is the heart of what Arc’teryx do and the roots of this company —to create what does not yet exist.
