 No.1 Arc’teryx (Canada)

 

Arc’teryx, founded in Vancouver, Canada in 1989, is Canada’s top outdoor brand and a recognized luxury brand with a near-crazy pursuit of new craftsmanship and new technology.

The name and logo of Arc’teryx come from the earliest known bird creature, Archaeopteryx, which is based on the “HMN1880 Berlin Specimen” (Berlin specimen) – the most complete archaeopteryx fossil ever discovered in Berlin around 1880.

In 2002, Arc’teryx was acquired by the Adidas-Salomon Group. Subsequently in 2005 Salomon was spun off from the A-S Group to the AmerSports Group in Finland. Today Arc’teryx is a subsidiary of Amer’s Salomon Group. However, Arc’teryx still maintains its independent operations in Vancouver, although some of its affiliated products have been moved to New Zealand, Vietnam and China. To date, its headquarters, design studios and major product lines are still in Vancouver. Due to its almost crazy pursuit of new processes and new technologies, in just over a decade it has grown into a recognized outdoor brand in North America and the world. With good products in the field of clothing and backpacks, Arc’teryx’s product line today still only covers outdoor apparel, backpacks and climbing gear.

Arc’teryx’s predecessor, RockSolid, was created by Dave Lane and Jeremy Guard. The earliest product was climbing equipment, designed and produced by the thermo-compression technology of the Vapor belt (Harness), which has become one of Arc’teryx’s most popular products… In the second year of the company’s operation, along with the expansion of the company, Arc’teryx launched the Bora series of backpacks using the same Vapor technology. In 1996, Arc’teryx was authorized by WLGore to use Gore-Tex fabrics to begin production of its new line of outdoor technology apparel.

The best-selling products in its collection include ThetaSV and GammaMX jackets, and Arc’teryx’s designs have won numerous awards from professional outdoor magazines such as Backpacker, Outside, Climbing, Men’s Journal, and Powder.

For Arc’teryx, the best guise is, of course, the clothing series. Whether it is hardshell or softshell, almost everything can be described by art, and the clothing has perfect functions and excellent details, giving the outdoor users a full experience and perfect protection. It lets us get closer to the challenges of nature. From the snow-capped mountains to the rainy grasslands, Arc’teryx can bring you the happiest and most essential outdoor experiences. However, in terms of its price, most of its products are still the higher-end products of outdoor clothing because of its origin and the materials and the extreme pursuit of technology and function.

Some of the relatively low-end clothing has already been produced in China, Vietnam and other places, reducing the corresponding production costs, but the demand for quality hasn’t changed.
