Clima Customer Spotlight: Arc'teryx
Dissatisfied with the gear options available in their home of Vancouver, climbers Dave Lane and Jeremy Guard started fabricating and selling climbing harnesses and chalk bags out of their homes back in 1989, for what would soon become known as Arc’teryx.
Taking their name and logo from the first known “bird” Archaeopteryx (which died out roughly 150 million years ago) Arc’teryx sits at the base of the Coast Mountain range in British Columbia and offers a wide range of products, including clothing, packs, climbing gear and other outdoor essentials. Now in its 27th year, Arc’teryx has been lauded with praise from climbers and outdoorsmen alike; and its products remain synonymous with quality, performance and innovation.
Nowhere is this more apparent than in Arc’teryx’s Proton Series. Utilizing Climashield® insulation, the new Proton AR and LT jackets and hoodies are designed for active use in extreme environments. Our insulation not only shields users from the cold but also offers other practical solutions on the trail, including durability, the ability to pack light and warmth in wet conditions.
An all-around, air-permeable jacket, the Proton AR Jacket provides superior thermal protection while allowing air to pass freely in and out for maximum comfort. For those looking for a softshell/mid-layer, the Proton LT offers the perfect blend of warmth and versatility needed to meet the demands of rock, ice and alpine climbing.
Designed for comfort in a wide range of temperatures and conditions, the Proton series offers the best end-use performance, resiliency and the ability to dry quickly if wet. The jackets and hoodies are also abrasion, wind, and water resistant — all in a trim fit that makes it ideal for aerobic outdoor activities.
