    Look good, smell good, and stay good and warm.

    Whether you're ice fishing for a week or entering a team in the Iditarod, you won't be doing laundry for a while. The Arc'teryx Men's Long-Sleeve Rho LTW Zip-Neck Top was designed with you in mind. Made from New Zealand Merino wool, this top naturally regulates your temperature and minimizes bacterial growth so the shirt won't stink like a football locker room after a day on the trail. The touch of elastane lets the shirt bounce back, day in and day out, for extended wear.

    Gusseted underams gives you freedom of movement to reel in a record-breaking northern pike. Open the neck zipper when you need a little air to cool down. Even if week-long winter camping isn't your idea of fun, the longer length lets you tuck it in without sporting tails. The next-to-skin fit lets you sport a trim profile; complete the look with jeans and driving loafers.

    • Gusseted underarms
    • Half-length neck zipper

    Warmth plus moisture & odour control

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Wore this for two weeks in Hokkaido in February. Ski resort, sidecountry and touring. The tight stretch fit is necessary for good moisture wicking and, the fit in combination with the fabric made this garment performed well on that front. I am quite sensitive to wool irritating my skin with a scratching feeling. That didn't happen with the Rho. This will be partly due to the snug fit, but also indicates a high quality, long staple, low micron merino wool is used. The stretch in the fabric is excellent, so I never felt restricted. Yes, it does fit sheer, every little tummy bulge is visible. Perfect odour control. Wore for days with minimal smell. Merino is great for this, but I find it usually falls short as a technical fabric, getting saturated and slow to dry. With the elastane, and presumably good wool quality, this fabric performs exceptionally well. I really wish more manufacturers would go down the merino-synthetic mix route. Get it right and you have the best of both worlds, as you do in this garment. My only gripe is the pocket. It is essentially decorative, although you could slip in a key or a credit card. The zip rattles, making it annoying for use as a winter running top. Otherwise, perfection.

    Edited to add: Reviewer below makes a good point about the cut. Tapers real low at the back. Never any hassle with riding up. I have a silk hoodie that performs well, except it is cut too short. Constantly tucking in at the back to stop a draft. So I take this top instead, every time.

    This dress is very warm.

      In 2014, I bought 1 pieces of black, and then in the winter I wear this coat and jacket over the whole winter. This dress is very close, and will not produce a smell and itching. It fits me well. The bird is very light and only 280 grams, and very thin, the upper body is very tight (that is, the whole body of your body curve, if there is a good muscle to wear Shangjie is absolutely screaming.) , but wearing a big. I have a fat, I put on the stomach is very obvious. Although L is very fitting, but long sleeves, Americans are gibbons. This dress heat preservation effect is good, the upper part of the body can reach 10-15 degrees the did not study, but mountain this winter clothes outside cover a light down absolute past, finally do not have to wear a bird bear in winter, North friends there is no such a big effect south for the winter heating.
      But the photos on the web show that the dress is yellow, and see the real thing to find a big difference, almost military green. I don't know it's a mistake or what's wrong. If the color of the picture is better than that of the object.
      As a close fitting clothes I strongly recommend this dress. Can make you very comfortable over the whole of the winter.

      great fabric, built for a beanpole

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: large

      Great feel and thickness of the fabric and the collar lays nice. Buuut, epically long sleeves and VERY form fitting, even on my tall and thin friends. If it wasn't so tight, i would have kept it and stitched in thumb holes to make use of the extra 8inches of sleeve length. If you are Micheal Phelps, this might fit you.

      Solid Base Layer

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Large

      I purchased two of of these a few years back and I wear them all the time in the colder months. The fit is small, so size up. After reading the reviews I went for a large when I would typically buy a medium. I give it four stars for the fit which is a comfortable snug - a bit clingy without making me feel like I am wrapped in a sausage casing. I find the merino to be reasonably soft considering is is wool. If you are sensitive to a slight wooly feeling it might not be for you. It wicks moisture like a shop vac. I peel it off after intense cold weather activities and cannot believe how much it holds. That said it does end up carrying a bit of weight depending on the activity, but I find it is not something I do not notice until I am taking it off. Overall, a damn good piece.

      Very tight fit

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small

      I have tons of ArcTeryx stuff, way more than I should, and pretty much always wear medium. Small in a few cases, never large. This one is a really tight fit in medium. Not in a flattering way (granted that's more on me). To be fair, ArcTeryx tells you that it's a tight fit and I don't know how much it stretches over time, but it really is formfitting.

      Perfect Base Layer

      Love this piece. Have been looking for a good base layer for skiing and hiking and this takes the cake. Incredibly comfortable and very functional. The chest pocket is super convenient should you need to stash ID, a credit card, or a few bucks in it and, maybe my favorite part of the shirt, is the tapered bottom. I always had the problem of my base layer riding up my back but with the longer tail on this shirt, it never happens.

      The shirt is a little tighter fitting that I had expected. I'm 5'11", 170 lbs and usually wear a Medium in Arc'teryx. Had to exchange for a Large here and it fits great. Huge fan and would highly recommend to others.

      Great base layer.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      This layer is as functional as it is good looking. I feel that this layer is absolutely essential for going into the back country or everyday winter outings. Gotta have the wool.
