Arc’teryx Alpha AR Gore-Tex Jacket Outlet Online Review

The Arc’teryx Alpha line carries serious heft in the outdoor world. It is touted as the most serious, well-designed and well-built shell protection on offer. It ranges from the Alpha SV (reviewed here) to the Alpha SL, with the Alpha AR (or all-around) sitting squarely in the middle. We reviewed it across the spring and summer here in the Northwest, on the skin track as well as on glaciers.

Arc’teryx Alpha AR Gore-Tex Jacket Features:

  • N40d Most Rugged 3L GORE-TEX PRO base fabric
  • Strategically placed narrow GORE seam tape (8mm width)
  • N80d Most Rugged 3L GORE-TEX PRO reinforcements increase durability
  • Laminated high-strength hanger loop
  • Micro-seam allowance (1.6 mm) reduces bulk and weight
  • Cohaesive™ hem adjusters function as Hemlock™ with slight drop hem
  • Cohaesive™ hood adjustments for ease of use with mittens or gloves
  • Laminated brim
  • Helmet compatible StormHood™ provides full coverage without impacting visibility
  • RECCO® reflector hidden in hood brim
  • WaterTight™ external zipper, Pit zippers for easy venting
  • Full front zip with wind flap
  • MSRP: $600
The Alpha AR thrives on Cascade volcanoes

Alpha AR gives 100% Protection for 99% of people

It might be easiest to start this review with some comparison. The grandaddy of the Arc’teryx line is the Alpha SV jacket, which is their flagship product and is still made by hand in their Vancouver factory. We reviewed it in 2017 and the design has continued to evolve with small tweaks and an eye towards sustainability. The Alpha SV is built to extreme standards and their description of it as a ‘veritable storm fortress’ is pretty accurate. It’s just built to the highest standards, with extremely resilient 100D Most Rugged 3L GORE-TEX PRO fabric throughout. There are other differences in the tailoring and patterning of the design, with more articulation overall in the SV. More obvious differences include a slightly different pocket configuration and a lack of an internal wind flap.

The key point here is that the SV is designed with professionals in mind. If you work in SAR in British Columbia in the winter, the SV is for you. If you are a Cascades guide, the SV is for you. If you just happen to get outside 300 days in the year because of your parents’ trust fund, the SV is for you. The Alpha AR is for almost everyone else: it retains many of the premiere design elements of the flagship model as well as extremely durable, strategically placed N80d Most Rugged 3L GORE-TEX PRO reinforcements. If the Alpha SV didn’t exist, the Alpha AR might just be the best shell in the world and no one would think twice.

Little details on the pockets and cuffs help set the Alpha apart

That’s enough for comparison: let’s talk details. As mentioned above, the foundation of the Alpha AR is the a bluesign-approved N40d Most Rugged 3L GORE-TEX PRO, reinforced with N80d Most Rugged 3L GORE-TEX PRO. The big difference there is the denier, with 40 as the base and 80 in high-wear areas like the shoulders, sleeves and hood. The functional result of this combination is a jacket that saves weight and breathes easier through the 40D base, but shrugs off moisture and friction on the 80D reinforcements.

To their credit, Arc’teryx is using a water and chemical-sparing approach called Dope Dyeing. This dyeing process cuts the steps, and produces fabrics where the threads themselves are pigmented, saving water and promising a more durable and equally vibrant shades.

The single zippered internal pocket just barely accommodates this iPhone 13 in a rubbery case

The fit and tailoring of the Alpha AR are generous, with the layering needs of outdoor athletes kept in mind. I’m 5’11” 205lbs and the size Large that I tested feels about right for a mountain-oriented jacket that’s meant to accommodate puffies underneath. If you plan to use this in the city and want tighter aesthetics, you need to size down. But if you’re going to do anything from resort skiing to ice climbing in this, where layering is required, it’s true-to-size.

A number of features stand out on the jacket. One sign of quality is the Velcro cuff closures, which are a durable rubbery material that are easy to adjust with a single, gloved hand. I also love the StormHood, which is arguably the best in the industry in terms of offering full protection while maintaining visibility. In conjunction with a reinforced brim, the dual front and rear hood adjustments secure the hood over your head or a helmet to offer full protection while preserving peripheral vision. It’s a really good hood. They also have their signature tall collar, which most brands have adopted by now, which delivers a fortress-like feeling when zipped up.

The full-coverage fortress with a nice, tall collar

Other features do what is expected of them. The pit zips, for instance, are an easy way of dumping heat and I’m glad they’re there, but even Arc’teryx hasn’t quite figured out how to make these pull smoothly every time. They chose a waterproof zipper for the pit zips, which is good for protection but does put up more resistance than a non-sealed zipper. It’s especially difficult with a pack on. Climbing in the jacket feels fine, thanks in large part to the drop hem and shock-cord hem adjustments. No complaints there.

On the front of the jacket, the full-length sealed zipper and wind flap offer tons of protection. You’ll be grateful for the wind flap on days when the gusts cut through other zipper closures. On the flip size, I found that the AR’s main zip snags more often than the SV, likely due to the AR’s wind flap.

Gore-Tex Pro is behind quite a bit of the Alpha AR’s magic

I did miss the internal dump pocket that’s featured on the SV, but not the AR. It’s nice when you’re alpine climbing or touring and need to dump things like your gloves for awhile. The internal pocket on the AR is pretty small, which limits its utility.

People always ask about breathability in jackets like this, and it’s important to manage expectations. So much of how a jacket performs depends on what type of microclimate the wearer generates. I run hot, and I sweat: if you’re an outdoor athlete, you likely know where you are at on this spectrum already. Despite the advertising claims, I would say the AR offers just moderate breathability. This fabric does not breathe as well as an activity-oriented product like Gore-Tex Active or even eVent. However, both of those fabrics tend to wear out faster and, I would say, lose their waterproofing integrity faster. The 40/80D Gore-Tex Pro combo offers best-in-class waterproofing: if you get wet, it will be because of your sweat or not maintaining the DWR.

All of the features are easy to use with gloves, even if I’m demonstrating without them here

The Good:

  • Finely balanced combination of weight savings with all-mountain protection
  • Really excellent design, tailoring and construction
  • Versatile and adapts well to touring, glacier walking and alpine climbing. Or dog walks.
  • All the key features, like zippers, hem and cuff adjustments, work great
  • StormHood continues to offer best-in-class protection and visibility
  • Not mentioned in the review, but RECCO is a nice touch for skiing in- and out-of-bounds
  • Inclusion of bluesign fabrics and Dope Dye fabrics is a major environmental win

The Bad:

  • I’d love an interior dump pocket
  • Zippered internal pocket struggle to accommodate an iPhone 13 in a slim case
  • Even Arc’teryx hasn’t solved hard-to-pull pit zips

The Bottom Line: Arc’teryx Alpha AR Jacket

The Alpha AR offers all of the protection that most outdoor users will ever need. The thoughtful mixture of Gore-Tex Pro fabrics at 40D and 80D weights mean that the jacket can breathe, move and shed ounces without sacrificing protection. Arc’teryx conceived of and implemented all of the features really well, and they mostly work seamlessly when you’re out climbing or being active. For 90% of my adventures, this is the shell that I reach for first. It’s a no-brainer.

Arc'teryx Outlet Store NextGen Climb Commitment Pledges $5M Towards Accessibility

For all the high fashion collabs, celebrity endorsements, and podcast cosigns, climbing remains the North Star at Arc’teryx. But climbing in 2022 isn’t the same as it was when the brand launched its first product (a climbing harness) in 1989. It’s changing fast. To keep up, and to ensure the Dead Bird remains relevant in the sport that spawned it, Arc’teryx has announced the NextGen Climb Commitment, an initiative to invest $5 million CAD in community-based organizations, leaders, and training programs across North America over the next five years.

“We believe in the value of people learning to climb and the impact the sport has on people's lives—it's more than just the technical side of the sport, there's a life evolution that happens, too,” Arc’teryx Vice President of Brand Karl Aaker tells Field Mag. “But accessibility to the sport is a direct problem. It’s access to expertise and knowledge as much as it is equipment and locations to climb… that’s where we're investing and moving resources.”

As such, the ambitious, holistic commitment aims to support newcomers and elite level climbers alike by building on existing grassroots activations and other elevated organization alliances already in place.

To help lead the charge in identifying opportunities to make a real impact, be it through physical events or financial support with operating grants, Arc’teryx will lean on community organizers on the ground in key cities like Toronto, Vancouver, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York.

“We know that our expertise doesn’t match their expertise,” Aaker says. “So our work as an organization is to move resources into the hands of people that are leading the change, leading the work that removes the barriers and helps achieve that level of equitability."

For example, expect to see community-led free climb nights for underrepresented and marginalized groups at local gyms, free certifications, discounted courses, and hosted gym-to-crag events to increase outdoor education.

Grants for diversity, inclusion, and equity-focused organizations like Flash Foxy, Color The Trails, and Brown Girl Outdoor World will continue to help create more safe spaces for new climbers, while the ongoing partnership with Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) will ensure future Olympic climbers representing Arc’teryx’s home country are not just clad in the brand, but have been fostered by it too.

Now, if you’re wondering why a brand so deeply rooted in the alpine, in outdoor climbing and adventure, is doubling down on gym climbing and competition, so were we. To this, Aaker assures that the core of the brand isn’t shifting. But the industry is, and Arc’teryx isn’t blind to it. “We have roots in the Coast Mountains of Canada. We’ve built a brand and the product we offer in that outdoor space. That's not something to shy away from,” says Aaker. “But I think it goes without saying that the world of climbing, the industry, the sport, is changing rapidly. And to evolve our sport and see it grow in a way that's sustainable and productive we need infrastructure that introduces climbing to people. Gym climbing is an incredible part of that—it’s a driver behind the moment that climbing is in right now.”

All this said, there’s no concrete road map set in place for the NextGen Climb Commitment, beyond what’s been laid out for you here—a fair amount of gut following will guide the commitment. But that’s by design.

"Part of this being successful will be our ability to be nimble and respond to what's needed,” Aaker shared with Field Mag on the subject. “We don't want the money, the people, and the time to go to waste. So we're going to really watch where the impact is, where it occurs, and make sure we're supporting the right things."

In other words, keep an eye out for future news in your neck of the woods. Something might just be cooking.

GORE-TEX Reveals New ePE Membrane: Patagonia, Arc’teryx Outlet & More Buy In

GORE-TEX Expanded Polyethylene debuts for fall 2022, promising long-lasting durability, a lower carbon footprint, and lighter weight.

Outdoor industry giant GORE-TEX is so ubiquitous that even small changes to its patented weather-proofing technology reverberate across countless brands and products.

Because of that, details from an announcement made today by the Maryland-based textile leader regarding its all-new waterproof-breathable membrane — its hallmark technology — will send ripples across the industry and may change performance standards in outerwear.

Lofty claims, to be certain, but the unveiling of expanded polyethylene (ePE) already has other industry titans buying in — including Patagonia, Arc’teryx, and more.

“GORE’s commitment to launching ePE directly supports our initiative to reduce our carbon impact by about 65% by 2030,” Arc’teryx director of advanced research, Greg Grenzke, said.

Grenzke teased that ePE would debut in the Arc’teryx line in its Ralle (men’s) and Coelle (women’s) jackets for fall 2022.

We’ve previously reported on details about ePE’s tech. Here’s what we know about GORE’s latest wünder material, and how brands will use it for the fall 2022 season.

GORE-TEX ePE Membrane

GORE-TEX lauds ePE as “a key milestone in GORE’s ongoing sustainability journey.” And that sustainability element is a significant part of both the impetus behind the innovation and brands’ interest in it.

According to GORE, ePE boasts a smaller carbon footprint than its traditional waterproof-breathable membranes. This is thanks to ePE’s more diminutive profile — it has less mass and less overall material, which translates to less energy input, water usage, and carbon output.

Moreover, the ePE membrane is PFC-free, a goal that has rapidly become an industry-wide standard. This lighter membrane can also bond with selected backers and face fabrics — like recycled, solution-dyed, or undyed materials — to ensure the performance elements integrate with a variety of sustainable product constructions.

“This was an ask and a pressure we put on our friends and partners at GORE for a long time,” said Kristo Torgersen, Patagonia’s mountains brand and business lead. “We saw the future of waterproof breathables being in a non-fluorinated chemistry. We set out to eliminate PFCs from the membrane, but we got so much more.”

In addition to its environmental focus, GORE claims ePE possesses long-lasting garment life, fully windproof protection, high breathability, and durable waterproofing.

Where to Find GORE-TEX ePE

In addition to Arc’teryx’s Ralle and Coelle jackets, Patagonia will employ ePE on its Storm Shift ski and snowboard shell kits.

The new membrane will also appear in a variety of both performance and lifestyle products from adidas, Salomon, Dakine, Reusch, and Ziener.

Stay tuned, as GearJunkie will test GORE-TEX ePE in a variety of iterations to see how it stacks up. Learn more about GORE-TEX ePE.

LORENZ.OG BRINGS "PATENTED COLORSCHEMES" TO ARC'TERYX OUTLET STORE

Time and time again, LORENZ.OG has proven that he's an attention-worthy artist and designer. On his end, words are no longer needed, as his work rate, products, and "PATENTED COLORSCHEMES" speak volumes all their own.

Refusing to be put in a box, there's more to the designer's offerings than just sneakers. Sure, they may be his bread and butter, the work that got his foot in the door with the likes of Lil Yachty and the late Virgil Aboh, but they're only the tip of the iceberg.

Once we scratch the surface, there's a different gravy below. We saw it first with the recent unreleased Off-White '22 Burrow Bag, and now, Gorpcore gets flipped on its head with a series of light shell jackets.

While we've seen custom Arc' shells before, knocking about the wardrobes of Amine, Drake, and the rest, this is the first time that we've seen the globally desired outerwear look quite like this. That's the "PATENTED COLORSCHEMES" effect – take what you know and blow it out of the water.

Describing the creative process behind the collection of jackets that this Arc'teryx project has to offer in conversation with Highsnobiety, Lorenzo said: "I began sampling jackets towards the end of last year, and felt compelled to move away from the brands I am known for working on.

From the first sample I did for myself, I instantly saw huge potential to put my mark on a new medium. I wanted to present this to Arc'teryx but as a finished campaign, to show rather than tell. People often have to see to believe."

On the evolution of his work, he continued: "Based on my experience in sneakers and the impact I've had on the current trend and design aesthetics, I wish I was more patient in the beginning in showcasing a collection of work rather than piece-by-piece. The aim here was to create a campaign so impactful that even when elements of this are imitated, viewers largely recognize what they are imitating ."

Within the (as expected) color-heavy collection, you'll find the Arc'teryx Theta AR in "Volcano," Beta LT in "Menta," Beta in "Smog" and "Dusk," Beams Beta Patchwork in "Dusk" and "Genesis," and the Alpha AR in "Solis."

While this is an unofficial collaboration, it goes the full mile in continuing LORENZ.OG's demonstration of "PATENTED COLORSCHEMES" diversity of applications, like Lorenzo says: "I take pride in design innovation and new ways of working and feel what I offered to sneakers, I can offer to many mediums.

Clearly, brands across the board are missing out by refusing to bring the young designer on board. Virgil saw the vision and, hopefully, the industry will soon follow suit.

Arcteryx Outlet Online - 14 Practical, Comfy Leggings You Can Actually Wear Hiking

For an activity that’s supposed to be soothing and get us closer to nature, hiking comes with its share of bumps, scrapes, and stumbles. Only the best hiking leggings—ones that feature the versatility and stretchiness we associate with regular workout leggings, as well as the abrasion resistance we expect from outdoor gear—will get us through our outdoor adventures without snagging or chafing.

While we love a good pair of hiking pants, a pair of leggings might be preferable if you know you'll want greater freedom of movement (say, if you have to bend and high-step through rocky terrain). They’re also easier to tuck into hiking boots to keep bugs out and can offer plenty in the way of sun protection and breathability. Plus, you can use a pair of leggings as a base layer under your go-to soft-shell or rain pants during cold weather hikes. 

Of course, the best leggings for hikers borrow some of the technical features that we love about hiking and rock climbing pants, including some degree of weather resistance, tough fabrics that won't rip against rocks or trees, and, for extra points, reinforced panels to prevent wear and tear. They also need to be comfy, but that should go without saying. 

While it may sound challenging for a pair of bottoms to strike the fine balance between stretchy and tough, there are quite a few hiking tights out there that do just that. Here, we've highlighted some of the best hiking leggings from top-rated outdoor brands and retailers like Arc'Teryx, The North Face, Patagonia, and more. Read on to find your faves and gear up for the fall hiking and backpacking season.

Arc'teryx Essent High-Rise Leggings 26"

Made with a stretchy nylon-elastane blend, these Arc’Teryx leggings will hold up against rough-and-tumble use. But these weren’t just made with hiking in mind: The thigh pockets are positioned to sit below the leg loops of a climbing harness, so you can still have easy access to your essentials while you project.

The holy grail of Arc'teryx collabs outlet is returning soon

Arc'teryx and Beams are packing heat for cool weather. Their “Dimensions” collection, a grail amongst collectors and previously only available in Japan, will soon return for a global release. The highly coveted patchwork pattern from the collaboration sees its return in white, black, tan, and gray panels with an oversized Arc’teryx bird logo.

The colorful partnership initially began in 2001, when Arc'teryx and Beams teamed up to celebrate the latter’s 25th anniversary. Their Dimensions collection is inspired by a bird’s-eye view of nature merged with a human’s from down low. The combination results in hues taken from both micro and macro views of the outdoors, otherwise known as “dimensions.”

As an instant success, the collaboration has continued ever since. Each year, Arc'teryx and Beams offer up a series of bags or jackets, typically the Beta SLs, which are exclusive to Japan. This season, much to the delight of fans, that regional restriction is finally ending.

Arc'teryx

PUTTING IN THE (PATCH)WORK — Leading the release is a patchwork Beta jacket, outfitted with Gore-Tex fabric and Fore-Knit backer technology. The piece flaunts more than just a desirable design with waterproof, moisture permeable, and windproof features. Its frame also keeps the jacket quiet when moving around, so wearers can enjoy the sounds of nature rather than the swish-swish of their outerwear. An oversized Arc'teryx bird logo finishes off the Beta jacket and sits on the sleeve.

The outerwear’s white, black, tan, and gray aesthetic is continued on a Mantis 26 Backpack, a Mantis 2 waist pack, and a Mantis 1 waist pack. Only one of the waist packs utilizes the Dimensions collection’s patchwork look, while the other waist pack and backpack maintain a clean all-white base accented by tan and gray zippers. The bags range from 1.5 liters to 26 liters in volume.

COMING SOON — As usual, Arc'teryx and Beams will offer their Dimensions capsule in Japan, but customers in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and China will have a chance to grab the collection in their region, too. The patchwork pieces are scheduled to release in Japan on August 26 via Beams’s website, while a drop date has yet to be announced for other areas. Fans will want to keep an eye out for their respective release information, though — the collection will surely sell out rapidly.

Arc’teryx Outlet and BEAMS Unveil Dimensions Collaborative Capsule

Arc’teryx has unveiled its new collaboration with BEAMS, the Dimensions collection.

The unisex capsule includes four pieces from Arc’teryx standard outerwear and accessory lines, reimagined “in a palette reflecting a bird’s eye view of the earth’s terrain,” according to a press release. The pieces also include BEAMS’ staple patchwork in the Beta Jacket, and Mantis 1, Mantis 2 Waistpack, and Mantis 26 Backpack.

The capsule will be sold in-store at BEAMS Japan and Arc’teryx locations in North America, the UK, China, and on arcteryx.com in September, though a date has yet to be confirmed.

Arc'Teryx Outlet Opens First Canadian ReBIRD Service Center in Toronto

Following the opening of its first ReBIRD Service Center in New York City, Arc’teryx now expands its in-store ReBIRD program to Canada for the first time, offering on-site product assessment, care, education, and repairs at its new location in Toronto Eaton Center. ReBIRD is Arc’teryx’s eco-conscious initiative dedicated to shifting away from a take-make-waste economy to become a more circular ecosystem as the outdoors label looks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 65% by 2030.

Specific services offered at the new Toronto space include GORE-TEX leak testing, product education, auxiliary hardware (zipper, pull cords, cord locks, buckle, patch) repair, and fabric replacement. “Since opening last Fall 2021, our NY Service team has been able to resolve nearly 3/4 of functionally compromised gear, on-site, reducing the impact on turnaround time for our guests,” reflects Dominique Showers, VP of ReBIRD, Arc’teryx. “That’s our goal — to deliver clear education for technical product care, full assessments, and light touch repairs that keep gear in the field longer.”

The Arc’teryx Toronto Eaton Center Store is now open and two more Canadian retail openings are planned for later this year in Square One Shopping Center and Vaughan Mills Premier Outlet Mall.

Arc'teryx Outlet Norvan LD 3 Trail Running Shoe Review: Fit for the Long Haul

Carbon this, carbon that. In an era where running shoes are getting more and more complicated (not to mention more expensive), it's refreshing to see a brand make a pair of uncomplicated, effective running shoes for hitting the trail. The new Arc'teryx Norvan LD 3 is just that.

I wouldn't go so far as to call them "stripped down" or exceedingly plain, mind you; they are made with advanced materials and have all the updated bits you'd want from a modern trail runner. These new Arc'teryx shoes simply don't have anything you don't want or need.

For its third version of the Norvan LD (the latter letters stand for Long Distance), Arc'teryx has outfitted the shoe with a well-stacked, shock-absorbing Vibram Litebase sole finished with 4.0mm lugs, in a pattern that Vibram has dubbed Megagrip. The shoe is extremely light and features a minimal, durable upper that is in no way flashy (other than when found in the bright blue Fluidity colorway).

The toebox is wide, to accommodate splay, and the stretchy tongue provides a comfortable, friction-free fit. They also have the ever-important extra lace eyelet you can use for a heel lock, which definitely comes in handy on the trail.

Arc'teryx Outlet Opens Portland Footwear Office, Focuses On Mountain-Ready Performance

Arc'teryx prides itself on living in—and creating for—the mountain environment. Based in the Coast Mountains of North Vancouver, B.C., since 1989, Arc'teryx now has an additional home, this for footwear. And in Portland, arguably the global capital of performance footwear and only 300 miles from Arc'teryx headquarters.
While Arc'teryx has had footwear in its catalog for years, by opening a Portland office solely focused on the category, the brand aims to create new mountain-ready offerings and craft footwear silhouettes that become as iconic as the Alpha jacket.
"What is drastically different this time is the amount of resources and investment we are putting behind footwear and the focus," says Ovidio Garcia, Arc'teryx vice-president of footwear. "Our design declaration is the same, but there is more emphasis and more focus." ..........Read full article
