Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
As with all of my Arc'Teryx gear, this is a superb piece.
I have owned my black one for about three years and my blue one for two. They have been all over the world, through various washings, against various terrains, and put to the test. They come out ahead every time.
I like that it is very warm without being overly thick material. Some base layers feel resistant and hard to move in. This one gives me the flexibility I need from throwing up a bear bag to going for an early morning jog. The only time I don't reach for this base layer first is when I am in a muggy environment and want something with a little more breathability but with the long sleeves for protection.
They look sleek as well. I wear them for everyday wear as well as out on the trail. As someone with a very short torso it can be hard to find a base layer that fits right. This works very well and the sleeves are surprisingly the right length.
I have a few small stringers just starting to appear on my black one but after the use I have put it through over the past few years, I am hardly surprised. This will forever be my go to base layer and it is certainly worth the price.
