New GORE-TEX Pro
In our ongoing mission to design and build the best outdoor gear that we possibly can, we are very excited to introduce the highest performing GORE-TEX® Pro fabric in our Fall/Winter 2013 collection. For over twenty years, we have partnered exclusively with W.L. Gore for waterproof/breathable fabrics. The value of this long-standing industry relationship is the opportunity to be involved in research and development at the onset, as well as setting standards and pushing boundaries for future innovations.
Delivering up to 22% higher breathability, with a membrane that is more durable and extends the range of user comfort, the new Pro technology is refined to match the interval pace of guides, mountaineers, backcountry skiers, and high-performance outdoor athletes.
At the heart of every Arc’teryx design concept are the driving principles of problem solving and creating functional products for unforgiving environments. Critical factors in delivering the superior performance of our outerwear include: fits that enhance fabric performance, articulated patterns to anticipate the athlete in motion, micro seam technology to aid breathability and reduce overall garment weight, and of course, exclusive face fabrics developed in partnership W.L. Gore to meet our high standards of durability and suppleness.
