Magazine B heads to Vancouver, British Columbia for its latest subject: Arc'teryx. The latest issue is dedicated to all things Arc'teryx, from its fans to its designers and right down to the materials that serve as the building blocks for its coveted outerwear pieces. 

"Arc’teryx, originally named Rock Solid, is a climbing gear label based out of Vancouver, Canada. Dave Lane founded the brand in 1989 in hopes of making better climbing products based on his experience out on the rocks. Renamed in 1991 to Arc’teryx, a stylized abbreviation of Archaeopteryx lithographica, the first known bird, the brand demonstrates its enthusiasm toward evolution in clothing production processes. Since the debut of its signature ergonomic Vapor climbing harness that evenly supports impact load, Arc’teryx has unveiled a series of innovative products like the Alpha SV, a windbreaker with excellent waterproofing technology, pushing the standards of the outdoor apparel to a new level. Furthermore, the brand’s design-focused urban techwear line like Veilance and System_A put the brand on the map with celebrities and members of emerging subcultures."
