Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day*by 5pm MT 9/2/15

Ditch your old, heavy midweight layers and reach for the warm Men's Rho AR Zip-Neck Top. Arc'teryx used Polartec's Power Stretch fabric in order to give you all the warmth you need from a cold-weather layer and all the flexibility required for alpine climbing, trail running, or backcountry skiing.

  • Polartec Power Stretch fabric has a flexible construction that moves with you so achieving full range of motion is never a problem
  • Widweight Polartec Power Stretch fabric offers a supreme warmth-to-weight ratio to help you layer effectively in the cold
  • Polartec Power Stretch fabric dries quickly and allows for moisture and heat to move away from your skin
  • Trim fit keeps this top close to your body so there's no excess fabric to get in your way when you're moving or when you pull a layer on over the Rho
  • Low-profile laminated chest pocket and laminated zipper won't get in the way of layers on top
  • Collar zipper allows for easy venting and makes it easy to pull this top on and off

i love wearing this thing

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

i bought this mainly to wear casually outdoors around my home in michigan in the winter. i have used other base layer shirts in the past but this is the only one i wear now. its very comfortable and very warm. on an average 20 degree fahrenheit day with a bit of wind and in combination with my atom sv hooded jacket i stay pretty comfortable. if you're out hauling wood or doing sustained work in these conditions you may get too hot but you can always just unzip your jacket a bit. i just love this thing, it has finally made my michigan winters bearable becuase i dont like sitting inside all day but hated freezing outside. i also use it on my many vacations out hiking the parks and it is very comfortable to sleep in inside my sleeping bag.

The WARMEST base layer!

Fit is amazing. Warmer than any other base layer I have tried. It has held up well to the abuse of bc skiing and climbing. Unless its arctic cold, i will only wear this and a shell.

Great base and/or mid-layer

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

I bought the Rho AR a couple of years ago and have been using it for a mid-layer under my shell while skiing, as well as my primary outerwear as I'm out in town with the wife and kids. I recently bought another Rho AR so I wouldn't be suffering while the other one was being washed. Great product. Very warm and breathable. Good odor resistance, too. I'm 5'11", 170 lbs., and a medium fits me perfectly.

Very warm base layer

  • Fit: True to size

This was exactly what I was looking for to go with my Cap 4 bottoms on super cold days. I got to use it this weekend sailing in low 40's, and until the temps dropped into the 30's I was good with just this under my shell. Its trim fitting, but definitely thick so it takes up room. Can't say enough about how quickly it traps wamth.

I knew this pullover was going to be worth the money. The construction and design that went into this zip-up is exceptional. Arc'teryx pays amazing attention to detail. I purchased the small and it fits perfect on me. I am about 6' 0" 160lbs for your reference. I will definitely purchase another color in the near future.

you fit in a size small?? Did it fit like an under armour base layer?

Responded on

6 feet and 160 lbs and you go for a small? Thanks for the info. I'm taking my chances and go for a small too! No product returns for me as I'm way outside the US. Question, what is your chest size?

I'm 5'9 160 lbs, chest 38-39" waist 32".

I've tried the previous Rho AR from a friend and the Medium was perfect. I'm usually a small in every single other top I've had. Should I stick to the Medium for the revised cut?

Responded on

Yeah. The sizing is still runs a bit small with the new cut so size up. I'm a small with everything, but medium in the Rho AR top.

Responded on

Hey Jimmy. I would like to know your chest size and height. I'm struggling between a small / medium.

just a winner of a top

yep I am diggin the the super stretchy in all directions newly cut RHO AR. Correct me if I am wrong...this version seems a bit less boxy and more comforming than the previous addition that had been around forever. I am 5'11 165lbs and 33"waist. My sleeve length when buying dress shirts is 35" and a 16" neck is a touch big but comfy. This AR in a medium is perfect. Super soft feel. Great for colder days on the hill as a base layer
