The highest quality materials are used in ARC'TERYX products, providing durable waterproof/breathable storm protection while being lightweight and packable.
We're very proud to present ARC'TERYX at TACWRK in Germany, as there are only few dealers in Europe, which stock the LEAF articles. Named after the ARCHAEOPTERYX LITHOGRAPHICA, the first reptile to develop feathers for flight, freeing itself from the constraints of the horizontal world, Arc'teryx was founded in Vancouver, Canada in 1991, where it maintains its worldwide headquarter, design studio, and main manufacturing facilities. Their central purpose is to build the best product possible. They don't focus on incremental advancements, but on radically improving the status quo. Their designers strive not to outdo the competition, but to challenge assumptions about how products should be built. They have created groundbreaking construction technology, developed paradigm-shifting designs, and introduced major fabric technology. The resulting deluge of recognition, and mimicry, has cemented their reputation as the best gear designers in the world. Driven by evolution in action, they work passionately to advance performance in the harshest of environments. The Arc'teryx advantage is achieved by merging their unrivaled designs with the best quality, highest performing materials and assembling them in the most innovative and most durable manner for the intended use. Although Arc'teryx has its roots in the climbing world, they realize that the need for better gear exists in many areas. Among the hardest gear users on the planet are the people involved in law enforcement, military operations, peacekeeping missions and security details. The gear they use day in and day out simply has to perform and cannot be allowed to fail. The Arc'teryx Law Enforcement & Armed Forces (LEAF) product line was developed 2004 to address those needs.show more
