Company Profile
Arcteryx
ARCTERYX was founded in Vancouver, BC, Canada in 1991, where it maintains its Worldwide Head Office, design studios, and main manufacturing facilities. Driven by innovation, ARC'TERYX was founded to build better gear. We didnt just focus on incremental advancements, but on radically improving the status quo. We began with climbing harnesses and then proceeded to tackle packs and apparel with the same single-minded obsession for creating the lightest, best performing, and highest quality products available.

To realize our vision weve created groundbreaking new construction technology, developed paradigm-shifting designs and harnessed major fabric technology developments. The resulting deluge of recognition, and mimicry, has cemented our reputation at the pinnacle of the outdoor world. Our designers strive not to better the competition, but to challenge assumptions about how outdoor products should be built.
