Arc’teryx Ambassador: Gear Review

As some of you may know, I have recently become an ambassador for the Arc’teryx Vancouver store! Arc’teryx is a company I have been itching to work with for years – their product is always my go-to for any outdoor activity. Being able to work closely with them is a really exciting opportunity for me and I’m ready to share some stoke with you!

So naturally, I have to give you my honest review of the some of the items I’ve been trying out this summer/fall:


Cerium SL Hoody

The Goods:

  • Super compressible mid-layer or stand alone jacket
  • Sleek fit (curves nicely around my mid-section
  • Vibrant colour options
  • Down insulation

My Uses:

  • Cozy climbing layer (packs easily into a small sleeve)
  • Hanging out at the beach with my pup
  • Will be an awesome layer for ski touring
  • Hiking
  • Probably never going to take it off (hugs you like a cozy sleeping bag)

This jacket is a South Coast must. Super cozy for those chilly, fall days. It’s become my everything jacket and it compacts to the perfect size for any adventure.

$: 430 CAD

Lyra Short

The Goods:

  • Breathable
  • Lightweight material
  • Built in liner
  • Stretchy waistband
  • Uber comfortable – I almost forget I’m wearing them

My Uses:

  • Training
  • Trail-running
  • Chilling around my apartment
  • Light hiking or scrambling

I used to train in leggings because I always found shorts would either ride up, or cause discomfort around my waist. These shorts pass all my comfort tests! I wear them out running and they stay put thanks to the internal liner and adjustable waist.

Nodin Jacket

The Goods:

  • Super lightweight
  • Wind protection
  • Cool colour selection
  • Super easy to pack (easily crams into any bag)
  • Flattering fit
  • Hood packs away into collar

My Uses:

  • Trail-running
  • Traveling
  • Light layer for summer evenings

I just think this jacket is so sassy (insert salsa dancing emoji lady here). It looks good when you head to the city and it cuts the wind out in the backcountry. I love the Lamium Pink because it pops in any environment – Great for photos!

Psiphon SL Pant

The Goods:

  • Stretchy (great for flexible climbers)
  • Lightweight material
  • Great multi-sport pant
  • Adjustable waste belt
  • Comfortable fit

My Uses:

  • Climbing
  • Biking
  • Taking the dog for a walk
  • Hiking or scrambling

I’ve had issues in the past with pant sizing – but the Psiphon pant fixed that problem. They are super stretchy and durable. I wear them climbing indoors and out. I’ve scuffed my knees a few times on the wall and I haven’t seen any damage. I love any pants that have significant stretch and cinch at the cuff – nice touch!

$: 180 CAD

The Goods:

  • Moisture wicking
  • Lightweight but warm for cool days
  • Stretch
  • Breathable

My Uses:

  • Climbing
  • Trail-running
  • Spring Skiing
  • Hiking or scrambling

This is my everything layer. Perfect for fall running and climbing. I like the long fit of the Phase and how it hugs at my hips. Fabric is durable and keeps sweat away from my body!

$: 90 CAD
