Nice, Lighter Weight Shirt
- Gender: Male
- Fit: Runs large
Ordered this shirt because I was happy with the Arc stuff I've got in the past, and I wasn't sure about sizes... most shirts I'm either a large or a medium now, and went ahead and got a large to hopefully be able to wear it as a 'daily' shirt instead of just for workouts (tighter fit etc...). I'm 5'11", 180 and in decent shape for reference.
The large was too large for me in this case, and I think a medium would be decent for daily wear and a looser fit at the gym or out hiking. I'm still experimenting with Arc sizes because they have different types of fits, but in this case the large was too large and was really baggy on me. But beyond the fitting issue, the shirt was light weight, had a stretchy kind of fabric, and was pretty soft and smooth, although I wouldn't pick the work 'silky' to describe it. Given the right size, I think this would make an awesome shirt to wear around.
Hot day Champ
Got this shirt to deal with the hot days and it battles the heat very well. The shirt is lightweight, highly breathable, and wicks very well. My only complaint would be the fabric matched with a hydration pack. The fabric isn't abrasive on the skin or to touch, but for some reason, when wearing my hydration pack on those long trail days, the shirt tends to migrate up my back. I can only guess its the fabric, since my Arc'teryx Actinium shirt doesn't do this and that shirt is more of a silky material. But, sans the hydro pack, this shirt is great.
Great for hot humid midwest weather
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Does great in a humid midwest climate. I absolutely love it, the cognac is not quite neon but bright enough to be seen running/biking on the road. Material is not SUPER soft, but I have never felt any abrasion. Overall its incredibly comfortable and I wear it just about every other day in the summer, also the neck is a little bit closer fitting versus the velox comp which is a little loose - Probably the most underrated fabric that arcteryx uses, I sincerely hope they continue to make this shirt and in more awesome bright colors
Absolutely the best! No close second!
If you sweat, or are in a humid area, and want a shirt that does not cling AT ALL, is durable, featherweight, gives UV protection, can be washed and wrung out near "wearable dry" then look no further. This is BY FAR my favorite technical tee, and I have tried a bunch. Fabric is bullet proof,holds up in chimneys, and incredibly breathable. THIS is the shirt!!! Get one..really just do it now!
Is the material of this shirt exactly the...
Is the material of this shirt exactly the same as the sides and back of the Velox Comp? Are there any other differences between the Velox and Velox Comp (cut, length, etc.)?
It is the same fabric as on the back of the Velox Comp and the fit is identical.
How does Arc'Teryx Velox compare to Patagonia...
How does Arc'Teryx Velox compare to Patagonia Capilene 2 in size L?
I'm 40in(102cm), feel quite comfortable with the Cap 2 size L, I prefer a loose fit
size-wise, the Velox if a bit looser as it's not fit as a baselayer. Still go for a Lge.
