Speaking Arc’teryx

We regularly field questions about the Arc’teryx naming conventions. It can be easy to get confused as there are various versions of many of the products which are essentially modifications for specific use. Once you understand the lingo, it’s easy to see what is going on.

SV: SEVERE WEATHER
Designed for use in the harshest of conditions. The SV garments are manufactured from the most durable of materials and feature hoods.

AR: ALL ROUND
These products are crafted from mid-weight materials and are designed with versatility in mind.

MX: MIXED WEATHER

LT: LIGHT WEIGHT
These are made from the lightest of materials with streamlined feature sets.

SL: SUPER LIGHT

SK: SKI TOURING SPECIFIC
The SK is a winter sports-focused design with generous articulation for ski touring and alpine climbing.
