It has been a summer of industry accolade in both North America and abroad for Arc'teryx Equipment, Inc. Recently received awards, collectively celebrating great design, style and function, include the Fredrickshafen OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD (Silver), the ISPO Performance Award in hardgoods and the Polartec® APEX Design Award.

Arc'teryx took home both the Fredrickshafen OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD and the ISPO Performance Award after debuting the new R-320 rock harness at the summer trade shows in Europe. Both awards dealt with stiff competition among hundreds of international entries and a tough panel of judges. However, in the end, the R-320 rock harness won over the juries displaying beautiful integration of style, design and technical innovation. One judge, writing for the OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD panel, noted: “This product changes the way we think about harnesses. Instead of an uncomfortable, often poorly designed belt, here you have an aesthetically pleasing design solution with perfect functionality.”

On the home front, the fall 2007 Griffon Jacket and Hercules Hoody recently won Polartec® APEX Design Awards. Winners in this category are selected based on style, function and fit of the garment as well as the most innovative and appropriate uses of Polartec® fabrics.

Innovation has been the driving force at Arc'teryx Equipment Inc. since its inception in 1990 in Vancouver, Canada. Passionate about advancing performance in the outdoors, Arc'teryx has gained international recognition as the undisputed industry leader for design and construction of harnesses, backpacks and technical outerwear.
