Established in 2021, Arc’Teryx’s System_A line builds limited-edition capsules of mountain-ready designs, inclusive of climb, snow and trail, under the governance of senior design director Taka Kasuga. On Wednesday, the sub-label revealed its fifth-ever drop, titled “The Creative Approach,” featuring a slew of “hike to climb” ensembles spanning three tenants: stretch, storage and comfort.
Stocked with climb essentials, the range includes soft-shell cargo jackets and pants, hoodies, graphic tees, mid-layer vests and a versatile waist pack. Among them, the Chexa Hybrid Hoodie offers a multi-material construction with Coreloft™ insulation and fleece sides, while the Platz Cargo Pant provides lightweight weather protection with the Fortius™ 1.0 double-weave softshell.
Elsewhere, the Copal SS Grotto Line Tee, which features linear graphics in several bold tones, is composed of the brand’s engineered polyester, Phasic™ AR II, and the Paltz Cap features a similar print, with another round of the Fortius™ 2.0 fabric.The Q5 Waistpack, meanwhile, prioritizes durability and storage with a dual-compartment design and an adjustable strap.
System_A’s fifth drop, “The Creative Approach,” is now available to shop in stores and on the brand’s webstore. Peruse the collection in the gallery above.
