Employees of Arc'teryx Equipment in British Columbia gave up three Saturdays of their time recently to report to work and make capes designed for homeless people in Vancouver. Using material from the ends of rolls and that was discontinued, they put together 560 capes with Gore-Tex technology to help those living outside withstand Vancouver's windy and rainy winter while reducing the amount of fabric that was going to be throw away. This was the second year for the project, called ?Bird's Nest?; in 2009, Arc'teryx gave out 300 capes. This year's batch was handed out in late December.
