Arc'teryx Thorium AR Hoody

A generalist down hoody made from durable face fabrics and 750 fill grey goose down, the Arcteryx Thorium AR Hoody has been revised for winter 2018, improving on what is already a well renowned classic. Providing warmth and versatility on cold days the Thorium AR jacket can be used as an extra warm mid-layer or as a stand-alone outer jacket, an ideal choice for any mountain sports enthusiast. Arcteryx uses Down Composite Mapping™, combining goose down insulation with panels of Coreloft™ synthetic insulation in the collar, cuffs, and under the arms, areas prone to moisture. The outer is manufactured from a durable yet soft Arato™ fabric that benefits from a DWR finish to repel moisture. Other features include a fully adjustable low profile StormHood™, elasticated cuffs and adjustable drawcord hem to help keep your essential warmth stays where you want it, next to your body.

This is Who We Are

Arc'teryx is founded on the idea that there is always a better way. No matter how successful or innovative a product is, we believe that each design and process can be further refined. Arc'teryx stands for continuous evolution towards the ultimate balance of lightness, performance and durability.

Making one of anything is possible; mass crafting is complicated. At ARC'One, our own manufacturing facility, we solve all challenges first. Proven in Canada, made by our global partners.

We believe design is a hands-on process: prototype, test in the real world, revise. Driven by the specific needs of each product, until it is exactly what it needs to be. Nothing more. Nothing less.

This is who we are.

 

ARC’One, our Canadian manufacturing facility, is located in New Westminster, B.C., only a short drive from our design centre. Having this facility closeby is an opportunity for us to design and optimise the manufacturing process for each product from beginning to end. We can discover and solve problems, revise workflow and create specialized tools.

Ideas are worthless until proven. Prototyped at ARC’One and tested in our rugged local mountains, from idea to output, ARC’One, enables us to keep manufacturing within our design process. We can experiment with new fabric technologies, construction innovations and develop blueprints for our global manufacturing partners.

 

The fastest, most technically advanced apparel factory in the world, ARC’One uses LEAN manufacturing to streamline production. Using a module system, LEAN groups highly skilled, efficient teams into units that perform all the operations necessary to complete products. This method supports small production runs, niche product development, and allows us to rapidly prototype and experiment.

Having our own manufacturing facility has always been part of our design process. Solving the problems that come with producing in bulk is actually an extension of our initial question: How do we make better products?
