Arcteryx is was founded in 1989 producing climbing harnesses that were constructed using ground breaking heat lamination. Over the last 25 years Arcteyrx have built a renowned reputation for manufacturing some of the finest outdoor clothing in the world, and some of the most expensive. It is the quality of the materials that they use along with advanced construction techniques, that they have developed that result in slightly higher prices, but we think they are worth it.
