Arc'teryx

Sports & Outdoors in Kitsilano & University of British Columbia

Flagship branch of Vancouver's high-end outdoor-gear store. Expect to pay a premium for the best waterproof jackets and weather-resistant pants. The upside is they'll last for ages and you'll be joining a cool group of outdoorsy types wearing a highly regarded logo. Keen to save? It also has a factory outlet in North Vancouver (see the company's website for details).
