VEILANCE - AN ESTABLISHED MAINSTAY OF THE OUTDOOR SPORTS MARKETS
Since 1989, the brand has been offering athletes high-quality, innovative clothing and sports equipment that is ahead of its time. Always a pioneer, always pointing the way. The logo of Arc'teryx Equipment, the manufacturer of VEILANCE, also embodies this pioneering spirit: archaepteryx lithographica is the name of the first reptile that developed feathers for flying. The prehistoric reptile also provides the inspiration for the manufacturer's name, Arc'teryx Equipment, and the logo, which was long used in the collections as a brand name ("Arc'teryx Veilance"). A stalwart which is always one step ahead and progresses practically and functionally. "Vapor", the first harness of the company, was designed in a garage - by climbers, for climbers. In the meantime, the company has spread its wings and is one of the world's leading brands in the mountain sports sector.
VEILANCE- FIRST-HAND DESIGN
The creative minds behind the highly functional sportswear describe their headquarters in Canada as a "Design Center" - and not without reason. Over 200 employees across 25 divisions create prototypes with a high level of understatement. Any part that leaves the Design Center can go into production exactly as it is. From the design to the selection of fabrics, everything has been thought through to the smallest detail, has been tested by the designers themselves and is the best solution: lighter, faster and more efficient. True to the motto of the brand: there is always a better solution. And they always find it.
VEILANCE - SUSTAINABILITY IS A QUESTION OF TIME
The products only leave the Vancouver site when they have been put through their paces and are perfect - a process that can take years. Quality takes time. And the time factor plays a big role in climbing harnesses, jackets or backpacks: not only are they visually timeless, they also withstand time by providing athletes with consistent quality every season. That makes the products sustainable individual pieces. VEILANCE lives this philosophy: after a single investment, the products should be used as long as possible. That's why Arc'teryx Equipment offers its customers a repair service. The idea behind it: using functional textiles, instead of throwing them away, minimising the ecological footprint together.
ARC'TERYX EQUIPMENT - MATERIALS OF THE BEST QUALITY
Every step taken, for example, by the Arc'teryx Equipment classic - the "Alpha SV Jacket" - has been taken into account and optimised for a highly positive eco-balance, from design to washing and sorting. The VEILANCE brand also observes the highest standards in handling materials. Because technical outdoor materials often need to be made from synthetic raw materials to achieve the best possible performance and this in turn requires the use of chemicals, Arc'teryx works particularly closely with their suppliers and is a partner of the Bluesign® system. Bluesign® is committed to a secure and sustainable textile industry. Natural materials, such as down, for example, are only purchased from farms that can ensure appropriate, proper animal husbandry.
VEILANCE - A PARTNER YOU CAN RELY ON
The materials are therefore processed in a particularly complex manner in order to guarantee durable, impeccable quality. And in all areas: from zipper systems that do not let water through to jackets that are warm and breathable at the same time. Because on the way up, you need partners you can rely on. Just a few years after its foundation, VEILANCE set up such a partner with W .L. GORE. The result: VEILANCE equipment - for all weather. With the waterproof, windproof and yet breathable materials, nothing stands in your way during sport - whether you are knee-deep in the snow or climbing a rock face with beads of sweat on your forehead. The aforementioned "Alpha SV Jacket" outdoor jacket, for example, was developed in cooperation with GORE and revolutionised the market: never before had there been a lighter jacket with this functionality, with the typical GORE Teflon membrane - 300 grams lighter than comparable models. Top athletes such as Toni Lamprecht, Jason Kruk and Grant Statham, among others, have recognised that they can count on VEILANCE equipment and wear mountain sports equipment of the highest standard from head to toe with VEILANCE.
VEILANCE - ON TOP - IN ALL AREAS OF LIFE
VEILANCE is characterised by its minimalistic, functional design. No wonder that this basic idea is not only appealing to sportspeople. Polished for success, the Canadians also design simple-looking blazers or polo shirts, which stand out in a sophisticated way from conventional shirts by skilfully playing with details: a zipper, instead of a placket, high-quality merino wool, instead of conventional materials. Even the streetstyle pieces of the brand promise success, because even these benefit from the cooperation with GORE: the water-repellent blazer will help you make any meeting - no matter where it is. And the classic polo shirt will become an all-round favourite item in your wardrobe thanks to its unique wearing comfort and simple elegance. The pieces of the Arc'teryx x VEILANCE collection show that functionality and elegant, clean streetwear do not have to be mutually exclusive. On the contrary: only in combination do they develop their potential and become your daily companion - on the steep path to the next mountain peak or in the rainy streets of the city. If you are always looking for perfection, with VEILANCE, you can be sure that you have found the best solution.
