Another Great Addition to my Office Wear
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 210 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

I picked up some new collared shirts for work and this was one of them. I like the fit, It says "trim fit" but seems to fit the same as my other Arc'teryx shirts which state "relaxed fit". It has the classic Arc'teryx chest pocket (no zipper) and build quality. The material is great, reminds me of their base layer materials, super stretchy, smooth, breathes well and dries quickly . All the short sleeve Arc'teryx shirts I have are built with the classic boxy shoulder style; so when you move/lift your arm it kind of has that suit appearance as the shoulder stays boxy when you raise your arms. I like this shirt as an addition to my office attire, my Stoic Roam shirts have seen many wearings and needed a new rotation. The color is true in the BC picture. The Arc'teryx logo is printed between the shoulders on the back, it has snap buttons (with fancy styling/hidden buttons) and this shirt says made in China.

Classically Arc'teryx
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 210 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

I picked up some new collared shirts for work and this was one of them. I like the fit, It says "athletic fit" but seems to fit the same as my other Arc'teryx shirts which state "relaxed fit". It has the classic Arc'teryx chest zipper pocket and build quality. The material is great, reminds me of their base layer materials, super stretchy, smooth, breathes well and dries quickly . All the short sleeve Arc'teryx shirts I have are built with the classic boxy shoulder style; so when you move/lift your arm it kind of has that suit appearance as the shoulder stays boxy when you raise your arms. Under the arms is a different material, its a little darker than the rest of the shirt but doesn't distract or prevent me from wearing this in the corporate office. I like this shirt as an addition to my office attire, my Stoic Roam shirts have seen many wearings and needed a new rotation. The color is true in the BC picture, mine shows more blue... but its definitely more purple-ish. The Arc'teryx logo is printed between the shoulders on the back, it has snap buttons and this shirt says made in China.

Urban styled, classically Arc'teryx
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 210 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

I picked up some new collared shirts for work and this was one of them. I like the fit (more relaxed) and the style is definitely "urban" and would satisfy any office hipster who moonlights as a weekend warrior. It has classic Arc'teryx chest zipper pocket and build quality. The material is a cotton blend with a little stretch to it; unfortunately its not of the wrinkle free type and you will need to iron and/or lay flat to dry. The material also has an almost shiny appearance...hence the hipster style. All the short sleeve Arc'teryx shirts I have are built with the classic boxy shoulder style; so when you move/lift your arm it kind of has that suit appearance as the shoulder stays boxy when you raise your arms. I like this shirt as an addition to my office attire and would give it 5 stars except for the material. The Arc'teryx logo is stitched between the shoulders, it has standard buttons and this shirt says made in Bangladesh.

What I was looking for.
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 210 lbs
Size Purchased: 12

I needed new backpacking boots to replace my 12EE Dunham waffle stompers with many miles and finally landed on these after trying several other brands. These boots are EXACTLY what I was looking for in a backpacking boot, great ankle support, stiff, comfortable & grippy sole, and comfortable fit. These boots have a great tongue, and it laces tight and makes a great seal around my ankles. They have have great support and will be awesome with a 50+ lb pack. The Ghilly lacing will break in nicely and allows for a customize-able fit. I normally wear a 12 in all shoes, purchased a 12, and these were true to size with plenty of width for my wider foot and with extra room for swelling. The construction is hand done and the sole re-sole-able, German engineered and made in Croatia. Really excited to put some miles on these!
