Arc’teryx LEAF – XFunctional Pant AR

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Referred to as Cross Functional Pants, these are what range pants should be. They offer a roomy, ergonomic cut with plenty of room to move. I own a pair and I really like them.

Made from a 50/50 NYCO blend, these are not ripstop nor do they offer any mechanical strength.  However, they do integrate a gussetted crotch and articulated knees with a casual look. This gives you loads of room to move.  Additionally, the pockets are quite handy, but I haven’t yet had an occasion to use the pocket media ports.  They would probably be good for low viz ops.

-Reinforced belt loops accommodate heavy duty belt and carried loads
-Embedded sweat band at waist mitigates friction
-Internal hand pockets have folding knife/tool storage and media ports to allow internal routing of communications cables
-External hand pockets have secure small item compartmentalization
-Two external seat pockets; two external drop in pockets for smartphones
-Two retention loops integrated at waistline

Offered in Greenstone and Terra which are not traditional LEAF colors but fit in well with other Arc’teryx items, as well as those from other manufacturers, for those seeking a low viz look.

Sizes are even 30-38″ with 32″ and 35″ inseams but note, these pants are baggy and I suggest you go down a size, even if carrying IWB.

Arc’teryx Reminds You To Care For Your Gore-Tex Outerwear

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

If you’ve got an Arc’teryx jacket or pants made from Gore-Tex, they’d like to remind you to give it a little TLC.

At the end of each season it’s a great idea to do a visual inspection of your gear so, if needed, you can have it repaired and ready for next season!

-Open and close each zipper and inspect teeth for damage.
-Verify that all internal elastic drawcords (i.e. hood and hem) are in good shape.
-Inspect the outside of the garment

In the event of a problem, warranty info is available at
