Stay Warm In Style With Arc’teryx

Hi everyone!

Being a mom to a two year old means being on the move all the time. My daughter loves to play outside and who am I to say no to that?! Now that fall is upon us we have to start dressing warmer, but you warm up quite fast when you’re running after (or from) a toddler. That’s where my Arc’teryx Narin Vest in Quartz ($270 CAD / $225 USD) comes in. It’s perfect to go play outside with my daughter; it keeps my core warm and keeps me cool at the same time.

Arc’teryx is a Canadian brand based out of Vancouver, BC.

At Arc’teryx, the goal is to create equipment that enables a person to be immersed in the moment of doing, regardless of external conditions. Simple solutions to complex challenges; this is the essence of minimalism and our philosophy of design. Reducing the effects of weather, streamlining use, and moving efficiently creates a timeless, outdoor experience.

The brand is named after ARCHAEOPTERYX LITHOGRAPHICA, the first reptile to develop the feather for flight. How cool of a name is that?!?

The Narin Vest is described as a lightweight, casual, hooded down vest with clean urban style. The vest really is lightweight, it’s like I’m not wearing anything at all. And it feels SO SOFT, that’s the first thing I noticed when I touched it.

This vest is great for playing outside with my daughter and it also pairs perfectly with jeans for when I’m out and about.

  • My climbing buddies back home in Newfoundland wore Arc’teryx for years (and still do). Then one of them went on to be one of their designers! Love that it’s becoming a ‘bigger’ brand. The vest looks awesome on you.

    • Thank you Nancy!
      That’s so cool about your friend being one of their designers! They have really beautiful pieces and I have my eyes on quite a few!

  • That is an awesome vest – I love that it has a hood! Totally outside my price range because we have such a short fall season here usually, but it looks amazing on you!

    • Thank you Rebekah!
      I didn’t get to wear it for too long, but it will definitely get lots of use in the years to come.
