Video: How the Costal Mountain Range in Canada Inspired Arc’teryx to Make Better Gear

Stretching for more than 1600 km (995 miles) from Vancouver to the Yukon, Canada’s Costal Range is a change of mountains that are notions for their extreme weather conditions, difficult climbing, and breathtaking beauty. They are also the same mountains that inspired Arc’teryx to create gear that performed well enough to allow climbers, backpackers, and explorers to survive and thrive in that very environment. In the video below we not only get to see the Coastal Range in all its glory, but we’ll learn how it shaped the products that the company produces today. It is equal parts inspiring and informative, particularly for those of us who love our outdoor equipment.
