North Vancouver, B.C., December 11, 2009 – Management and staff at Arc’teryx Equipment Inc. are deeply saddened by the death of Guy Lacelle at the Bozeman Ice Festival yesterday. Sources say Lacelle was swept off the climb by an avalanche that occurred around 9:30am. He leaves behind his beloved wife Marge and his constant companion, his dog Jade.

A two time winner of the Ouray Ice Festival climbing competition, Guy’s accomplishments earned him the Banff Centre for Mountain Culture’s Summit of Excellence Award.

John Irvine, Director of International Sales, says, “Guy was a great, great person. He epitomized dignity and integrity. His Zen climbing style was peaceful, relaxed, and smooth; and he was always happy and positive. His passion for adventure and drive to see and explore new places and cultures made Guy a real pioneer, and his charming personality made him a pleasure to work with.”

OGE Picks: Women’s Fleece Jackets

OGE Picks: Womens Fleece Jackets from Arcteryx, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear, Patagonia and The North Face.

The North Face Oso Hoody Fleece Jacket North Face Oso Hoody – The Oso hoody fleece jacket from The North Face is Oh-So-Soft. After putting on this jacket, you will be convinced that The TKA high loft fleece must be the softest fabric on earth. You will not want to take this jacket off, nor will you be able to stop petting yourself. Did we mention this jacket is soft to the touch? MSRP: $130

Patagonia Synchilla Windzone Fleece Jacket Patagonia Synchilla Windzone Jacket – Patagonia made this reversible fleece jacket from Polartec Wind Pro fleece—high loft and fuzzy on one side and low cut like velour on the other. This densely knit jacket provides triple the wind resistance of a regular fleece to keep you warmer on blustery days, plus it breathes, so you don’t overheat when you’re on the move. MSRP: $180

Mountain Hardwear Monkey Woman Fleece Jacket Mountain Hardwear Monkey Woman Jacket – At only 15 ounces, the Monkey Woman Fleece Jacket from Mountain Hardwear gives you tons of warmth at a fraction of the typical fleece jacket weight. High loft Monkey Phur fleece gives this jacket a rich texture and the power stretch cuffs, wrist panel, and waist make the jacket stay in place for excellent range of motion. MSRP: $140

Arc'teryx Delta SV Fleece Jacket Arcteryx Delta SV Jacket – The Arc’teryx Delta SV has all the fine details you would expect from Arcteryx. Super loft Polartec Thermal Pro material keeps the jacket fuzzy and comfy, yet moisture and smell resistant. The zipper has a chin guard to prevent face scraping, and the gusseted underarms keep the jacket in place while you’re active. The cut is stylish and flattering to the feminine form. MSRP: $200

Marmot Radiant Fleece Jacket Marmot Radiant Jacket – Getting back to the soft theme, the Marmot Radiant Fleece challenges The North Face Oso for who is the biggest softy. The Radiant jacket uses Polartec’s long-fibered Thermal Pro Persian fabric, which actually retains heat better than standard fleece and also feels great against the skin. This 200 weight fleece works great on the outside on brisk days, or as a layer on the very frosty days. MSRP: $130
