Arc’teryx Birds Nest Project

, February 17, 2012

As Canada’s third largest city, Vancouver has a problem that often goes unreported – homelessness.

Of course comfort would come into play as I assessed the material’s limits in the summer season.

The Arc’teryx Pro Shell range includes some of the best waterproof tops on the market including the Alpha SV which received the Backpacker Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010.
