ARC'TERYX is named for the ARCHAEOPTERYX LITHOGRAPHICA, the first reptile to develop the feather for flight, freeing itself from the constraints of the horizontal world. Arc'teryx has its roots in the climbing and outdoors world. However, Among the hardest gear users on the planet are the people involved in law enforcement, military operations, peacekeeping missions and security details. The gear they use day in and day out simply has to perform and cannot be allowed to fail. The Arc'teryx Law Enforcement & Armed Forces (LEAF) product line was developed to address those needs.
