Established in 2021, Arc’Teryx’s System_A line builds limited-edition capsules of mountain-ready designs, inclusive of climb, snow and trail, under the governance of senior design director Taka Kasuga. On Wednesday, the sub-label revealed its fifth-ever drop, titled “The Creative Approach,” featuring a slew of “hike to climb” ensembles spanning three tenants: stretch, storage and comfort.
Stocked with climb essentials, the range includes soft-shell cargo jackets and pants, hoodies, graphic tees, mid-layer vests and a versatile waist pack. Among them, the Chexa Hybrid Hoodie offers a multi-material construction with  Coreloft insulation and fleece sides, while the Platz Cargo Pant provides lightweight weather protection with the Fortius 1.0 double-weave softshell.
Elsewhere, the Copal SS Grotto Line Tee, which features linear graphics in several bold tones, is composed of the brand’s engineered polyester, Phasic AR II, and the Paltz Cap features a similar print, with another round of the Fortius 2.0 fabric.The Q5 Waistpack, meanwhile, prioritizes durability and storage with a dual-compartment design and an adjustable strap.

System_A’s fifth drop, “The Creative Approach,” is now available to shop in stores and on the brand’s webstore. Peruse the collection in the gallery above.
