Ask SSD – Arc’teryx LEAF Cold WX Jacket and Pants SV Temp Range

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Recently, after we mentioned the latest Cold Weather ensemble from Arc’teryx LEAF, we were asked, “What Is The Intended Temp Range For The Arc’teryx LEAF Cold WX Jacket and Pants SV?”

The answer is from -20C/-04F down to -40C/-40F, so you’re looking at some seriously cold temperatures.


We also got a question, asking if the fit block in the torso is large enough to wear over kit. According to Arc’teryx, the amswer is “No.” It’s designed to be worn with overwhites, if required tactically, and with external LCE as you can see in this CSOR photo.

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.

FEATURES:
-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.
