Arc’teryx’s namesake, ARCHAEOPTERYX LITHOGRAPHICA, was the first reptile to develop feathers for flight, and the first to pose a threat to the literacy of archaeologists. Founded in the Canadian wilderness, each product is designed and manufactured in-house before being extensively tested on-mountain in the brand’s backyard. If you’re looking for constantly evolving product lines built to best the outdoors, look no further. Arc’teryx aren’t messing around.
