Arc’teryx LEAF – What’s New For 2019

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

Year after year, Arc’teryx LEAF continues to introduce some of the most innovative specialized clothing and equipment on the market and 2019 is no exception.

We’ve already unveiled the rebooted Atom LT Gen 2 lineup with its added features and new materials resulting in improved air permeability. In addition to Jacket, Hoody and Pant, LEAF also added a Vest.

Arc’teryx designers have added a new Softshell fabric option (6.5 oz Durastretch Tweave) for the popular xFunctional Pant, creating the xFunctional SV. At the same time, they updated the fit for both the AR and new SV versions. Look for the SV in Black and Rawhide colors.

Additionally, three products have been brought over from the outdoor product line, the AR-395A Harness as well as the Aptin Short and Cormac T-shirt.

The harness is all Black for LEAF applications.

For years small units and agencies have worn Arc’teryx garments for physical fitness training. Bringing these two items into the line makes it easier for LEAF customers to add this capability to their kit bag.

Look for our detailed coverage of the 2019 Arc’teryx LEAF line during SHOT Show. However, for those of you who can’t wait, these items are available now at leaf.arcteryx.com as well as from your favorite LEAF dealer.

New Atom LT Gen 2 Lineup for 2019 from Arc’teryx LEAF

Tuesday, January 1st, 2019

Arc’teryx LEAF has redesigned the Atom LT for 2019, creating the Gen 2 lineup.

img_1064.jpg

The first thing you are going to notice is the zippered chest pocket, but that’s not all that’s new. Atom remains my mid-layer of choice because they’ve focused materials used on increasing air permeability.

While they’ve retained the TORAY Mechanical Stretch Mini-Rip LT (w/DWR) durable face fabric from the first version, the hoody’s insulation and liner have been updated to a more breathable system to improve body temperature regulation when worn under PPE or as part of layering system.

A new liner material is a key component in this revised configuration of materials. The LI PENG high air perm nylon ripstop liner permits airflow, which aids in the transport of moisture and heat away from the body. Combined with continuous filament CLIMASHIELD Combat Fibrefill Insulation (w/DWR), breathability is greatly enhanced. Overall, the new materials package increases breathability, improving performance over a wide range of conditions.

At the sides, you’ll find a very comfortable PONTETORTO 7.5oz Hardface Fleece.

The Atom LT (Gen 2) line consists of four garments including the new Atom LT Vest (Gen 2). It accompanies the Atom LT Hoody (Gen2), Atom LT Jacket (Gen2) and Atom LT Pant (Gen 2).

New features:
• Trimmer fit hood with updated design
• Moved from an internal chest pocket to an external left chest pocket for securing carriage of mission essential items.
• Updated the media port management system. Creating routing of communications cables on either side of the jacket now.

Other Features:
• Insulated Hood – allowing the option to use a hood when/if reqd.
• Full Zip Closure (w/No Slip Zip™) – prevents zipper from self-opening at collar
• Hand Zip Pockets (w/media ports in both) – allowing for convenience and the secure carriage of mission essential items
• Drawcord Hem Closure – vertically routed drawcord with enclosure mitigates snags and hang-ups

The ATOM LT ( Gen 2) line is offered in Black, Crocodile, Wolf Grey, and Ranger Green, sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL.

Chinese Conglomerate Mascot Bidco Oy Makes Offer To Purchase Arc’teryx, Salomon and Associated Brands

Friday, December 7th, 2018

For quite awhile there has been speculation regarding a bid by Chinese corporation Mascot Bidco Oy to purchase Amer Sports Corporation based on Finland which owns Salomon, Arc’teryx, Peak Performance, Atomic, Mavic, Suunto, Wilson and Precor.

Today, Amer Sports issued a statement and supporting information regarding the 4.6 Billion Euro offer, which can be read at www.amersports.com/2018/12/mascot-bidco-oy-announces-a-voluntary-recommended-public-cash-tender-offer-for-all-the-shares-in-amer-sports-corporation. As it is so lengthy, and the forward looking information for this publicly traded company sensitive in several countries, that it’s best left to a link.

To be sure, the implications are significant to the brands in question, as well as the market as a whole. There is no additional information at this time but it’s important to remind readers that any purchase is subject to significant regulatory oversight and would be months away, if it does in fact, happen.
