    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
    • Item #ARC3406

    Great Gift

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I bought this pullover for my dad in Black and he LOVES it! He is a tough guy to buy for but he loves how light this pullover is but yet keeps him very warm during the winter. He works outdoors and this pullover kept him really warm during the frigid winters here. He loved it so much he bought himself another one in the grey color. I bought my father a size large because he likes the roomier fit and it fits him and his beer belly well.

    Warm!

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

    First impressions, Warm! I put before a very early morning walk and it kept me really warm. The fit is true to size and fits snug. Definitely a go-to top for cold days/evenings.

    Ridiculously Warm

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

    When I tried on this layer, I started sweating within 15 seconds of putting it one in the room-temperature room. In the snow, this is fantastic, and it fits snuggly so that it easily fits under all jackets and other layers.

    Very warm midlayer

      I was pretty impressed with the warmth of this one. I ordered it as a mid-layer for snowboarding. Had to take it off twice in the early spring months because it was so warm. I ordered the large, I'm 5'10" and 180lbs, and it was pretty snug on me, I have pretty big shoulders. Definitely could be used as an outer layer in dry, mild conditions.

      Extremely tight

        I'm 6'0" 200lbs 35waist 34 1/2 sleeve length and wear Large in almost everything Arc'Teryx. The Large in this I ordered fit like a compression shirt in the chest/torso area but the sleeve length was great. Hopefully the XL I exchanged for will be ok in the chest and not to long in the sleeves now...

        I had the same fit issue as Adam. 6'1", 205lbs 36waist 35" sleeve. I had a large, the sleeves still fit well(long enough), length of shirt in torso was 1/3 down my butt which I like when I'm reaching over head to not get a cold draft, however when fitted with a thin under armor t-shirt as a base layer this large seemed to be pretty snug/compression like. Without the t-shirt base layer, the fit wasn't bad but I ordered the XL for comparison.

        Way tight

          I'm 6'0" 200lbs 35waist 34 1/2 sleeve length and wear Large in almost everything Arc'Teryx. The Large in this I ordered fit like a compression shirt in the chest/torso area but the sleeve length was great. Hopefully the XL I exchanged for will be ok in the chest and not to long in the sleeves now...

          very warm

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

          I dress this clothes when the temperature about 0 to 10, I feel very warm, I'd like to buy another one with another color. Hope a discount

          Wish I had one for every day!

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

          This product work really well as a base layer or as a mid layer. It even works great on its own. It is very soft and warm and it layers really well. I am 5'6" and I have a small. Medium probably would work well for me to.

          My third one

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

          What more needs to be said. I live in a 100 year old house in Montana. This is my standard wear from October to April. I'm out on dog walks 4 times a day, no matter what and the Rho and a shell or the Rho and a puffy are all I ever need.

          I've tried a bunch of Power Stretch tops and the Rho's version is the perfect blend of fuzziness, stretch, and weight (every company seems to get a custom version of Power Stretch).

          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!

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

          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

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • 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.

          Perfection

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

          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.

          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

            Unanswered Question

            hi, my chest is 44 inches, what size would you recommend for this? I dont live in the US so ordering one and returning it if doesnt fit is not an option. By the way, I wear Large for almost everything. thanks!

            I've tried the previous Rho AR from a...

            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?
