Arc'teryx Fan

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 160 lbs

I own every Arc'teryx shirt, and they all look/feel/perform splendidly. It's not to the level of some others, thus four stars. It is very lightweight and breathable. I find it extremely comfortable. My only gripe, if you can even call it one: the logo is centered on the front of the shirt (I prefer the left breast)

You can't go wrong with Arc'teryx!

A bit of a disappointment...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 200 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL

I'm a huge fan of Arc'teryx products; despite the higher average cost, I think Arc'teryx offers incredible value for the workmanship, the overall utility and durability, the design, and the materials.

In the case of this shirt, however, I've been a bit disappointed. I found the Velox crew's neck to be very irritating because of the way it's designed and sewn. The neck seam is sewn with a material, and in a manner of construction, that gives it no give whatsoever. As a result, it ends up giving me a kind of "poly rope burn" on my own neck when I wear it for very active pursuits. Yesterday, I finally reached a breaking point in the middle of a work capacity session in the gym and had to stop and change shirts just to go on.

Setting aside that one, major flaw, though, there's a lot good about the shirt. The fabric is what I'd characterize as "gossamer" in weight and feel, but still holds up to abuse well. It breathes exceptionally well, and dries very quickly without much perceptible odor (at least so far). The fit is good; I'm 6', 200 lbs, with a very athletic build, and find the XL "just right" - neither baggy nor sausage-casing-tight, but right in the middle.

Your mileage may vary on the neck seam, so if you give the shirt a try be cognizant that it may still work well for you (or may garrote you while you pursue your stoke). For me, though, it's a shirt that's a bit of a disappointment.

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 same as the sides and back of the Velox Comp? Are there any other differences between the Velox and Velox Comp (cut, length, etc.)?

Best Answer Responded on

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

Responded on

size-wise, the Velox if a bit looser as it's not fit as a baselayer. Still go for a Lge.
