Arc’teryx Athlete Roger Strong on Being Vertical and Getting Caught in an Avalanche | Pop-In@Nordstrom New Classics

What’s in a name? Sometimes, a lot—at least as far as we can tell when it comes to Arc’teryx-sponsored athlete Roger Strong. We caught up with the professional outdoorsman as he drove down to this year’s Pacific Crest Trail Days hoopla (before jetting off to France for a global Arc’teryx meeting—ah, the good life) to chat about his go-to pistes, favorite Arc’teryx gear and, yes, getting caught in an avalanche.

In honor of the exclusive his-and-hers Beta LT Jackets that we’re carrying at Pop-In@Nordstrom New Classics, our buds over at Arc’teryx put us in touch with Strong, an avid climber (and skier and fisherman and kiteboarder…) who’s been a sponsored athlete for 15 years and living the vertical life since his childhood in the wilderness goldmine of Denver.

Take a Tour of Filson’s Factories | Pop-In@Nordstrom New Classics

To commemorate our Pop-In@Nordstrom New Classics collab and Filson’s imminent new flagship unveiling, we got inside one of the coolest and oldest Northwest brands to tour the production spaces and hang out with their highly specialized Filson Restoration Department, or FRD.
