See The 2017 Arc’teryx LEAF Line Unveiled At SHOT Show

I just spent the past three days in North Vancouver, British Columbia with the Arc’teryx LEAF team going over the 2017 line. We even put some of it through the paces on a nearby shooting range with 18″ of snow and freezing temperatures.

It was a great week and you’re going to love what they’ve got to offer. You’ll find new clothing styles as well as load carriage, in addition to more colors for the stuff you already use.

To see it in person at SHOT Show, visit Booth #10526 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, January 17-20. Everyone else should watch this space because I’ll be providing pre-show coverage as well live from the SHOT Show floor.

    Hard to know what’s an AD now and actual journalism. Most gear news are all sponsored, I miss the older days of SSD where it was more discovery and insider knowledge.

    Kudos on the growth though, Eric. I’ve been a longtime reader.

    To everyone else, please buy American and help keep American factories open. My team got LEAF items from Arc’teryx and I proudly refused and bought Crye with my own money.

    God bless all.

      I don’t quite understand what you’re trying to say? Are you saying ARC’TERYX paid for this story?

      • John says:

        I would also argue, that while Arc’teryx is a Canadian company, they are pretty much our brother and Canadian manufactured stuff is as just about as good as American in terms of that..

    • Jester says:

      It’s a Canadian company…we’re not talking about some third world outfit operating out of a conex. Don’t take the buy American stuff too far.

      • Patrick Cayer says:

        I do love the Arc’teryx quality and it’s products, However, they are also extremely expensive and yes you do need to pay more for good quality and they do give a small discount to the military which is really appreciated since we can’t afford their stuff regular price or even with the discount. One company that I know produces almost equal quality and gives a 50% discount to its armed forces is OUTDOOR RESEARCH!!
        I would give them a look since they obviously care more about it’s service members.

      Have you ever ridden in the back of a Stryker? Manufactured in Canada. Have you ever been supported by Hornet’s or Super Hornets? A significant amount of the parts used to manufacture them are made in Canada.

      On the flip side, a large amount of military equipment and aircraft that Canada uses is manufactured in Canada, in fact, many of the parts that are used *in* the Stryker are made in the US first.

      I understand the animosity at the amount of jobs that have been shipped overseas, but Canada is not overseas. We are both stronger nations through our mutual support of each other. Have you even heard of NORAD? Or noticed us in Afghanistan?

      Your comment about ‘proudly’ refusing LEAF items is your choice and you are free to make it. But it appears to me to be naive, short-sighted, and petty.

      Sorry for making gear so good you had to buy something else yourself.

      -AlexC

      P.S. Arc’teryx makes products that are Berry Compliant.

      God bless all.(Except your allies.)

        After reading my comment after posting I realize I got a little heated and lost myself a little. Aspects of my post were not professional.

        I apologize.

    most of arcteryx stuff is made over seas, very few items are made in house anymore.

    • MtDoc says:

      Check the labels.. Most is made in CHINA . (period ) They feed the machine. … they have been trying to get a way from it , but can’t they have a company to run ($$$$) that is managed from 3 or 4 levels above the sales and R&D team (the 1 dude).

      Plus anyone who can articulate if Canadian forces are using it or not can deploy with them… The good unit is great to work with.. But lets not stretch the truth about how many guys are really deploying for global campaigns, I remember them running the gate and Kandahar Hospital was amazing.. not a dig , just fact … They can support the small pockets of CAN SF units but have been late and under deliver here in the U.S .. check with the units waiting for there gear …. The seasons a have changed twice..

      Amazing products , but as the company man said to me ‘ We have a brand to protect , we are only about the brand.. ”.. Ill admit they have a great puffy.. 🙂
