It's well know that Vancouver has a large population of people living on the streets. Many people ignore the fact, but for three years Arc'teryx have been taking action by donating their materials and time to help those survive the rugged conditions of the west coast. Their design team has come up with a simple product, easy to make, using Gore-Tex to create a cape-like jacket. The company donates the materials and their employees donate their time to produce this functional, and rather good looking piece. Last year Arc'teryx provided over 700 Gore-Tex capes to people in need throughout Vancouver.
