Arc’teryx LEAF – Berry Compliant Clothing New Available For Order

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

IMG_2536Arc’teryx LEAF has committed to manufacturing in the United States in accordance with the Berry Amendment (USC, Title 10, Section 2533a) in order to better support US military units who want to outfit themselves with LEAF garments. These US made garments are the same quality you expect from Arc’teryx. Naturally, these are going to be a bit more expensive than their other offerings. However, if you’re a commercial customer, you can still purchase Arc’teryx LEAF clothing made in foreign factories.  

Berry Compliant uniform products include the Assault Shirt AR and Assault Pant AR both now available for order through LEAF dealers. Dealers interested in carrying Berry compliant LEAF products, contact Hugh Rickenbacker.

Arc’teryx LEAF Announces Berry Compliant Manufacturing

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

This is huge news from Arc’teryx as clothing and equipment from their LEAF program continues to increase in popularity with US military customers. Even though you get what you pay for, cost can be an issue for some, but the biggest hurdle is the Berry Amendment which requires that textiles originate and are assembled here in the US.

They are kicking off with production of the Assault Shirt AR and Assault Pant AR which have already been selected for clothing programs within elements of the Air Force. Hopefully, this will soon be followed with the Recce Shirt AR, Atom LT and Alpha Jacket and Pant.

Read their release below.

Vancouver BC (Jan 2 2017) – ARC’TERYX LEAF, the technical leader in performance apparel and equipment, is proud to announce that it has committed to manufacturing in the United States in 2017 and in accordance with The Berry Amendment (USC, Title 10, Section 2533a).

Berry compliant products will allow Arc’teryx to establish its position as a provider of best in class uniform solutions to the US military.

The aim is to create approved, stock issued items, that are inventoried by our dealer network. Arc’teryx is approaching this capability in a scaled and opportunity driven manner. Phase 1 BERRY manufactured uniform products will include the Assault Shirt AR and Assault Pant AR.

“Currently we have not been able to satisfy large volume technical apparel requests by US Military units. Becoming Berry compliant allows us to become a true uniform supplier”. – James Harding, Director of LEAF Commercial.
