cortezbankbugslayerwrote a review of Arc'teryx Accelero Pullover Top - Men's on April 20, 2009
Even though I already own this in size large, dark blue, I just now went ahead and ordered the white in XL (no white larges at the sale price). I'm getting a second one because I dig it that much. Great all around single layer for crisp hikes and biking here in the coastal range of Santa Barbara. It shields me from poison oak (as far as I can tell) and protects me from heavy chaparrel in tighter places when I'm mountain biking, especially on the single-track descents. I was gonna use it as a base-layer for skiing but it's a little too stiff. Wicks really well - which is surprising cause it definitely acts like a shield- altho it IS surprisingly warm for how thin it is. It's kind of like a mini-softshell in a way. Absolutely perfect for biking. Super well-made and I like the way it fits and looks on my lanky form. The collar is kind of formal, but kind of flattering too (or so I'm told). The cuffs look good too, altho they are light blue on mine, not white (as shown here). Everything I read in the reviews below is pretty accurate... it's worth it at the sale price, and it is a quality piece, despite not being made in Canada. It has found that good balance between being a protective softshell-like shield, but without the overheating when working hard, and it is actually pretty warm for how thin it is.... I guess that's just the nature of polyester. It's not super stretchy, but it does give a bit. I'm 6'2" 190, and the large fits me really well. I like the length of the arms because they keep me covered on downhills while I'm biking.
