industry accolade in both North America and abroad for Arc’teryx

[Origin of Establishment]

  Arc’teryx took home both the Fredrickshafen OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD
and the ISPO Performance Award after debuting the new R-320 rock harness
at the summer trade shows in Europe. Both awards dealt with stiff
competition among hundreds of international entries and a tough panel of
judges. However, in the end, the R-320 rock harness won over the
juries displaying beautiful integration of style, design and technical
innovation. One judge, writing for the OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD panel,
noted: “This product changes the way we think about harnesses. Instead
of an uncomfortable, often poorly designed belt, here you have an
aesthetically pleASIng design
solution with perfect functionality.”

Today there’re plenty varieties of design awards, so credibility,
specialty and authority have become increasingly declined. Hence, to
create China’s own “Red Dot Award” and “Pulitzer Prize” has become the
consensus in the design circle.

  On the home front, the fall 2007 Griffon Jacket and Hercules Hoody
recently won Polartec APEX Design Awards. Winners in this
CATegory are selected based on
style, function and fit of the garment as well as the most innovative
and appropriate uses of Polartec? fabrics.
