I recently purchased Arc's Beta LT, and am now looking for a mid to heavy baselayer for winter use to complement the Beta LT, which is a waist-length jacket. What length is the Delta AR in the front? I'd prefer a baselayer which does not stick out below the outter layer. It'd appreciate any info on the Delta AR or any suggestions for a more compatible baselayer.
Greg, most measurements are made on the back of the garment. The front measurement will vary, depending on the zipper. Measured from the back, with the collar all the way up, my old Delta is 31 inches from the tip of the collar to the tail of the shirt. The front will be slightly (1/2" to an 1") less.
Check out the Tau line of jackets and sweaters as well. they tend to be cut shorter in the front and provide excellent warmth and a little wind resistance (so you can wear them on their own). The Phase line is arcteryx's true line of base layers but I suspect you are looking for something that fall between a base layer and mid layer....
