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. 

Introducing Arc'teryx. Now available from Wiggle. 

Design with intent

Founded by local climbers in 1989, Arc’teryx remains a gathering place of like-minded people. Their 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.

The brand is named after ARCHAEOPTERYX LITHOGRAPHICA, the first reptile to develop the feather for flight. The Arc'teryx brand embodies this desire to challenge current assumptions and capabilities and create kit that enables you to go further, higher, to explore more. 

Humans are at the centre of Arc'teryx design, emphasizing function and simplicity. Being based in North Vancouver, they have the ideal testing-ground on their doorstep to make sure that their products can perform at the highest level in the toughest conditions.

Designed for the trails

The spring/summer 2018 trail running collection has been designed to be functional and beautiful. Tried and tested in the local mountains by the Arc'teryx team who are able to give instant feedback so that the end product delivers the optimum performance for your adventures.  

We're excited to welcome the brand to Wiggle.
