Absolute Performance: The Arc’teryx Veilance Collection

Arc'Teryx Veilance
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.
