We now have our Arc’teryx Spring/Summer range in stock and ready to ship. As well as some of the Arc’teryx classics such as the Atom jackets & vests, Arro 22 pack and the ever popular Conveyor Belt, there’s also some great new items.
The Carrier Duffle 50 uses Arc’teryx’s AC² fabric – a very tough and highly water resistant yet very light nylon. This has really changed the market as far as duffle bags are concerned, weighing in at a tiny 540g, so you’ll still have the airline weight limit available to put something in it! It will also fold up easily into a small space once you’re at your destination. All of this with a durability and weather resistance to match (or even exceed) more traditional ballistic nylon bags. The Carrier is also available in a 35 litre version.
Both the men’s and women’s Squamish Hoody have been updated for this season, with slightly tougher fabric for greater resistance against rocks or wayward tree branches. The Squamish Hoody is a fantastic windshirt, much more breathable than some Pertex versions and really comfortable to wear, whether you’re climbing, hiking or running. The women’s has also had a pocket change, gaining a harness-friendly chest pocket instead of hand pockets. They come in some awesome colours too! If you prefer no hood, check out the Squamish Jacket.
The Alpha FL Jacket is from Arc’teryx’s new Fast & Light range, aimed at alpinists moving fast in technical terrain. The jacket uses the highest end Gore Tex Pro membrane for supreme waterproofness and long lasting durability. By cutting down the number of seams and seam tape, Arc’teryx have managed to massively increase the breathability of the jacket, so it is actually better than a comparable jacket constructed from Gore Tex Active. Pretty impressive!
