In extreme conditions, the tiniest ingress can make or break your experience, which is why Arc’teryx are obsessive about seam technology. At the fore of innovation, they introduced micro seam technology to the market in 1998 and have continued to innovate and enhance it ever since.
Reducing the width of their seams not only reduces the chances of water getting in but it also lowers the overall weight and bulk of a product, whilst simultaneously increasing the breathable surface area to help keep you dry, inside and out. In addition, smaller seams help improve your flexibility, which reduces the chance of fabric wear, snags and abrasions while also helping improve movement and increasing your field of vision.
Finally, micro seam technology reduces material usage, which is better for the planet and the outdoor places we all want to protect.
