Arcteryx_Procline_Rueckruf_Collage_WebArc’teryx Equipment, in cooperation with Health Canada and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission is issuing a voluntary recall of all 2016 Procline boots, both men’s and women’s, because of a possible safety issue with the axis pin (circled below), which keeps the spoiler and 360 rotating cuff in place.

This recall concerns all six models of the 2016 Procline boots manufactured between Nov 1, 2015 – March 31, 2017.

In a very small number of the boots, the axis pin has dislodged during use, leading us to issue a voluntary recall to repair the pin and allow the boot to function as designed.

No injuries have been reported; however, in the interest of customer safety, Arc’teryx is requesting that customers STOP USE IMMEDIATELY, and send the boots in question back to be repaired via the following procedure at
