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 LEAF 2016 Line Available For Order

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

For over 25 years, Arc’teryx has specialized in clothing and equipment for cold weather and mountain pursuits.  These world-renowned designs are worn by elite athletes in some of the most demanding environments.

Almost 15 years ago, elite military forces began to adopt Arc’teryx equipment to combat challenging weather and terrain.

Based on these successes, Arc’teryx LEAF was formed. Eventually, dedicated designs were created for the unique requirements of military and law enforcement customers.

While the 2016 line is the most extensive yet, the core remains focused on cold weather performance.  This is the CW Jacket LT, the epitome of Arc’teryx LEAF design.

2016 Arc’teryx LEAF Leaks

Saturday, January 2nd, 2016

We weren’t going to be able to show you the 2016 Arc’teryx LEAF product line until SHOT Show but two things happened.

Right before Christmas an international distributor leaked the 2016 LEAF catalog. Then, at the New Year, Arc’teryx itself loaded the 2016 line unto their PRO website.

Cold weather and Mountain is what Arc’teryx does best and you won’t be disappointed as they introduce several new products with some great features.

All-in-all, the new stuff is in the standard LEAF color palette of Crocodile, Wolf Grey, Black and MultiCam. But, you’ll see Ranger Green pop up on a few additional items like the Naga Hoody and Atom LT.

LEAF CW Features 2016

For 2016, you’ll see a Cold WX Jacket LT, Cold WX Hoody LT and Pant versions with Coreloft insulation and Gore Windstopper shell.

There’s also a heavier Cold WX Jacket SV with Climashield Thematek insulation and Gore Windstopper shell.

LEAF Cold WX Jacket SV

The Jacket is paired with the Cold WX Pant SV.

There are also several new glove models and a heavy variant of the popular Balaclava from last year, except that it’s not FR but rather strictly for cold weather use. Featuring Gore Windstopper, this is the Cold WX Balaclava SV.

On a different note, the Assault Coverall AR was designed for European customers but may be of interest to US users as well, as there is also an FR variant.

LEAF Assault Coverall AR

This is my favorite piece from the new line. Arc’teryx LEAF has finally introduced a range pant. With it, Arc’teryx also introduces two nonstandard colors to LEAF; Greenstone and Terra. They are offered in waist sizes 30-38 waist in regular length (32″) and tall (35″).

Xfunctional Pant AR features

The Xfunctional has a great set of features and is made from a durable 50% Nylon 50% Cotton blend.

Finally, to wrap it all up, they are introducing a 40l version of the Drypack.

Many will like the more compact size and new PALS compatible grid for pouches.

Arc’teryx LEAF for 2016

Friday, December 18th, 2015

According to a blast sent out by the brand today, it sounds like cold weather clothing will be launched at SHOT Show.


 Arc’teryx LEAF was built on the principle of obsessive, precise design and production. For 2016, we emphasize on bringing unprecedented warmth to the most unforgiving environments with new cold weather systems.
