HIGH STITCH COUNT
STRENGTH, MEET MOBILITY
Hidden within our micro-seam technology are a whole lot of stitches — twice the industry standard to be exact. That translates to a lot more strength exactly where you need it and extra suppleness that lets you move with confidence through the toughest terrain.
MUSCLE FOR YOUR APPAREL
We’ve all been there — busted seams in the back country, duct tape and a little luck getting back to the trailhead.
While luck is nice, we don’t believe you need it.
Pro-craft and experts in durability, we’ve honed our skills and set the industry standard. High stitch count where you need it most — that’s just what we do.
ROOTED TO THE ATHLETE
“Focusing on athletes from crossover sports like climbing, running, and ski mountaineering allows us to focus on the crucial detail of durability and build products that obsess design through that lens,” says longtime Arc’teryx designer Tom Fayle.
Whether you’re laybacking the Split Pillar, leaping over a downed log, or finding purchase on an ice climb, high stitch count means stronger, more supple designs that move with you.
OUR GOLDEN THREAD
More durability, less chaffing, lighter gear — the many benefits stack the odds in your favor.
WHEN YOU GIVE A CENTIMETRE A STITCH…IT’S GOING TO BE STRONGER.
Take a closer look — all those stitches boost strength and reduce splitting. That’s better than gold when you’re 10 pitches up or halfway around a mountain.
From the beginning, “we always did higher stitch counts than the rest of the industry,” says Arc’teryx designer Tom Fayle.
Watching how our athletes perform in the real world gives us the insight needed to know the details that matter. From reducing the number of exposed threads and increasing abrasion resistance, high stitch count gives you unrestricted access to good times.
