Equal parts art and intelligence, ARTILECT is an apparel studio backed by deep experience of the past, with a laser-focus on the future.
Boulder, CO is our home. We are shaped by its beauty and mentored by its mastery. It is our reference, and our starting point to explore an eccentric world.
We are a team of innovators and rule-breakers in a relentless pursuit of progress to inspire a community of intrepid explorers to discover our world and seek new heights.
Live without boundaries. Fight to protect our planet. Show no sympathy to convention. Seek the things you don’t know.
ARTILECT is not a typical outdoor brand, it’s a performance brand that excels in the outdoors. This statement may seem to be at odds, but we are not going to be defined by outdated labels.
We grew up in the outdoors, but we did it in a time of revolution. A time of punk rock and skateboarding, of hip-hop and digital advances that led to a hyper-speed evolution of our environments.
We get out there, we get deep and we have the time of our lives, but it’s not about that alone. It’s about the destination AND the journey. The pain AND the reward.
It’s also about getting lost in an unfamiliar city, discovering cultures and living new experiences so that we can look back on our time, fulfilled with everything we’ve done and everyone we’ve met along the way.
It’s within the experiences of being alive where we find fulfilment.
ARTILECT’s A/SYS is a dynamic apparel system comprised of refined materials, methods and fit to support the highest level of human performance.
Every piece will exceed expectations worn alone, but magic happens in the complete A/SYS configuration.
Innovative technologies work in unison with decades of experience to maximize moisture management, thermo- regulation, freedom of movement, comfort and swagger from the peaks to the streets to give our wearers confidence in their gear and in themselves.
ARTILECT was created to break conventions.
ARTILECT is driven by people with decades of experience at the highest levels of designing, developing and actually using performance apparel.
We utilize field- proven technologies in fabrics and construction and work directly with the world’s most innovative suppliers to continue to push limits and set new standards for others to follow.
We are a brand that sticks by our beliefs of quality, value and longterm durability. ARTILECT is built to last, because making less things is the ultimate sustainability platform.
We have a responsibility to protect all our future environments with every decision we make.
We are, nimble, unafraid, and unapologetic.
We are responsible and we are responsive.
We are relentless, and loving every second of it.
Welcome to ARTILECT.
When it was time to create the foundation for ARTILECT SYSTEMS, we needed innovation partners that shared our high level of desire to push technlogy. Partners that had a relentless drive to do something new, something better and shared the same care we have for our environment.
Even more than this – we needed something revolutionary... and proven.
Our journey led us to Nuyarn®, an innovative merino engineering company who are pushing the limits of what fabrics can do.

Culturelines is our platform to connect with all the next level shit we see going on in the world. In it you’ll hear from many different people doing many different things, all united by their drive to change the conversation about the outdoors, technology, music, art, culture and more.
In the inaugural issue, our goal is to provide a snapshot of who we are and what we are creating within the ARTILECT STUDIO, including the brand itself. In future issues we will focus heavily on things going on outside of our little world, because we live for the unknown and broader horizons.
WE hope you’ll join us for the journey as we make it happen, building a community of people who celebrate differences and are always bringing an open mind to learn something new.
