TD is excited to bring another original collaboration with Arc’teryx LEAF to the market.
In addition to the limited edition bag (only 330 in the USA and 500 Total world wide), TD is offering “Pimp Your Khard Pack” giving the customer three options: Neon Green, Red or Grey. You will get 5.5 Feet of shock cord and barrel lock for the back of the pack, 4.5 feet of Shock cord for the top of the pack and a #’ed patch matching the color. There are only 110 of each color.
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 is expanding their footwear line with the introduction of a trail running shoe, the Norvan VT (North Vancouver, Vertical Terrain).
Available with or without GORE-TEX lining, it incorprates their 360º Support System made of internal and external components such as to toe lacing which helps position the shoe for a mid foot strike. The Norvan VT has a 9mm drop and weighs 11 ounces.
