Arc'teryx

Founded by local climbers in 1989, Arc’teryx remains a gathering place of like-minded people. Our 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 to 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. We have an engineering team with the ability to create tools. At our factory, in addition to manufacturing products, we can test ideas and prototype constructions. 

Products that are as good as they can possibly be, performing over time and beyond expectation, this is the heart of what we do and the roots of this company —to create what does not yet exist.

North Vancouver sits at the foot of the North Shore mountains, just minutes away from skiing, climbing, and harsh mountain environments. A unique setting for a city and the perfect crucible for innovative, purposeful outdoor designs.

The brand is named after ARCHAEOPTERYX LITHOGRAPHICA, the first reptile to develop the feather for flight.
