Quick Drying Sun Shirt!

I've put it through the wringer
True to size
Size Bought
5` 4"

The Kadem series is made with ultralight Phasic LT fabric that provides 50 UPF sun protection, wicks, dries super quick, and sits off of your skin to keep you dry and cool on hot days. I love its versatility! I have worn it all summer but will be using it literally all year long for hiking, climbing, paddling, and even as a light baselayer for warmer ski days. I love this shirt so much that I also got the tank top and love it, as well! They are both so light you barely even notice they are there. The fit is trim/flattering but doesn't stick to you and doesn't have any tight spots on me. I say it is true to size. I wear a large in most Arc'teryx tops and this one, as well. For reference, I found it to have a little more room than the similar Motus. I've used the Kadem hiking in the hot and dry Wasatch, Yosemite National Park, and hot and humid Squamish, BC and was most impressed with breathable it was, how quickly it dried and how comfortable it was both in softness and staying cool and dry in it. I love and definitely recommend the Kadem long sleeve top and the tank top, as well! If you have any questions about this top or any Arc'teryx products, please reach out to me at

Humidity lifesaver!

I have worn this Kadem Long Sleeve top on every hike since I’ve had it! It is my first summer living in the Pacific Northwest and I think I forgot what humidity on the trails feels likes! This top is lightweight enough to wear even on a warm day (which helps protect from mosquitoes and ticks too!). And it seriously dries so quickly! I was so grossly sweaty on our last hike that I took it off when we got to the summit, and even though it was a cloudy day the shirt was completely dry in less than 10min. I could put it right back on and wear it the rest of the hike down with out that back sweat/cold/not fun feeling! The Kadem long sleeve is super light weight and really comfortable to wear on a hike or just out on the town as well. I love the feel of the fabric. Have gotten mud, sap, dog drool, food, you name it on the product and everything has wiped off and it still looks new. Definitely a favorite product of mine!

Quality Shirt but Runs Large

I've used it several times
Runs large
Size Bought

It’s a quality shirt; it runs larger than the size I normally wear (M). Ordered a M and have to return it for an exchange of a S.

This is my experience too. I wear a L in Arcteryx jackets but a M in the Kadem shirts
