Brand: Arc'teryx

Season: Fall 2021

Key Pieces: All the Arc classics are here: From the Gamma MX Hoody to the Sawyer Softshell, Dead Bird doesn't disappoint when it comes to weatherproof outerwear. Whether you're a runner, hiker, or just going to the cafe (as the old joke goes), Arc'teryx will protect you from winter's worst.

Editor's Notes Some people love summer and that's great. How nice for them. But I hate it, especially on America's East Coast, which is unrelentingly humid and hot. Arc'teryx's Fall 2021 collection lookbook has really got me counting the days until autumn, not that I wasn't already doing that (two and a half months!).

Shot in and around what appears to be the gorgeous natural expanses that surround Arc'teryx's Vancouver HQ, the brand's new seasonal lineup is a lot like its previous ones and that's just fine. Arc'teryx is kinda fashion-adjacent now — not just Veilance! — but that hasn't changed its function-first design ethos: Arc is very much a technical apparel brand before it's a fashion house.

Still, Arc'teryx does do some pretty slick takes on transitional season outerwear, including plenty of its fan-favorite Hoodys in insulating makeups. There's the Atom LT, filled with Coreloft Compact, the Squamish, crafted from packable Tyono 30 nylon for heightened wind resistance, and the runner-friendly Norvan LT, made from GORE-TEX-backed with GORE C-KNIT and weighing "mere ounces," according to Arc'teryx.

Fuzzy Polartec, responsible down, thermal T-shirts, quilted trousers, and new colors of Arc'teryx's streamlined trail runners — granted max grip by Vibram soles — round out the first seasonal delivery. Boy, I can't wait until the temperature dips below 70℉ (or 80℉...) so we can even begin thinking about wearing them out amidst glorious nature.
