Why do we prefer Arc’teryx over Columbia?

Why do we opt for the Macbook Pro over the Macbook?

It’s the same reason we choose 4X4 over 2WD…

We hate limitations and crave freedom.

The way we spend our money says a lot about what we value. Some stay frozen in frugality, while others spend dizzily without sense.

Arc’teryx has set itself apart as the new standard for battle-tested adventure apparel. It’s a yard-stick of quality that competitors like Columbia are desperately chasing.

Date: January 15th

Location: Bragg Creek

50.9517° N, 114.5692° W

Time: 5:00 am

We reached the location around 7:00 am and waited for the sun to start peeking through the trees. The road was perfectly straight and completely our own - as if we had shut it down for this big-time production. Claude mentioned that they’re often chasing sunrises and now we understand why. …
