Absolute Performance: The Arc’teryx Veilance Collection

If you’re familiar with serious backcountry skiing, ice climbing, and the pursuit of crazy winter expeditions, then you’re probably acquainted with the perfection that is Arc’teryx. However, you’re probably not aware that Arc’teryx has a small but growing specialty urban line up, that is taking winter in major cities by surprise. The Arc’teryx Veilance Collection combines the technical fabrics and serious outdoors reputation of the famous Ascent and Whiteline products with smooth design lines and classic styling. The result? A flawless collection of urban inspired apparel and outerwear that performs in the worst weather and blows any of your friends’ office wear away.

Graphite-coatDitch your typical pea coat or pilot jacket this year. If that pesky Polar Vortex hits again, you’re going to need a much more durable jacket for your cross-town commute. The Patrol IS Coat is the ultimate winter piece for nasty weather. Featuring a Gore-Tex Pro™ outershell and removable insulating lining, the Patrol will be your go to jacket all season. When that Nor-Easter hits over your Christmas holiday, just don’t get caught without it.

Nomin PackYou’ve got to protect your precious tech gadgets as well as your body – that is, unless you’d like to explain to the teen at the Apple Genius Bar why your Mac Book is leaking water. The Nomin Pack is the commuter pack you need to lock down your laptop, smartphone, and other essentials this winter. Arc’teryx’s AC2 Nylon is complemented by full seam taping and WaterTight™ zippers, as well a rigid laptop protector. Whether you’re hauling your gear on the subway to work, or out of town on a winter roadtrip, you’ll be glad it’s protected in a Nomin.

Voronoi PantsFor mellow office days, or simply to separate yourself from the typical khakis and slacks crowd at your favorite bar, check out the Voronoi Pants. Named and designed for Voronoi mathematical diagrams (yeah, we don’t get it either), this cotton/nylon twill blend feels broken in and comfortable right out of the box. Add in an Aquastop™ treatment, Mil-Spec webbing belt loops, and a gusseted crotch, and these pants will soon be all you wear. Too bad they only come in two colors.

Haedn BlazerWhether you’re dressing up for that big quarterly budget presentation, or just looking to break up the typical Brooks Brothers routine, it’s time to graduate to some more serious performance and style. The new Haedn Blazer combines a fashionable,trim fitted wool outer with a smooth, comfortable cotton jersey lining. Smart accents like a hidden lapel pocket, versatile collar, and Schoeller fabric reinforced cuffs and seams make this blazer a stand out for all-season use.

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
