    Solid product

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I'm 5.7, 150 lbs., 38-40 top, 30 waist. Size bought Med. Although on the expensive side, I do like the product for its feel, fit, and weight. I've used for snowboarding, snow shoe, and hiking . I really like the warmth to weight ratio and it is very comfortable. Very solid base layer imo. Given that I'm not the tallest guy (or one of those tall, skinny guys), the sleeves are a little long. No complaints, highly recommended.

    Comfortable and Warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    Nice fitting, seems true to size. Nice layer, kept warm and flexible when skiing. Did not bunch up under jacket.

    Awesome Warm layer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I picked this up as a warm base layer for skiing and so far its been great! I bought a size large to fit over my light wicking base layer and it fits perfectly. The first day I used it I wore my base layer, this fleece, and my ski jacket and was hot on a 6 degree day. Definitely satisfied with this purchase.

    Love it

      The fit is great, as always with Arcteryx, but the arms are slightly long (thats a plus for me!) The insulation is soft and it breathes well. It's comfortable and makes for a great midlayer under a puffy, or standalone on cool days.

      Amazing under a shell

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Size Bought: large
      • Height: 6'
      • Weight: 175lbs

      Super warm and easy. I have every color they make.
      Very high quality. I'm 6' 175lbs. Ordered large.

      Cheers

      Buy it even if you don't have the money

      Keep you dry and happy throughout out the coldest of day.

      Great Gift

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I bought this pullover for my dad in Black and he LOVES it! He is a tough guy to buy for but he loves how light this pullover is but yet keeps him very warm during the winter. He works outdoors and this pullover kept him really warm during the frigid winters here. He loved it so much he bought himself another one in the grey color. I bought my father a size large because he likes the roomier fit and it fits him and his beer belly well.

      Warm!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      First impressions, Warm! I put before a very early morning walk and it kept me really warm. The fit is true to size and fits snug. Definitely a go-to top for cold days/evenings.

      Ridiculously Warm

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      When I tried on this layer, I started sweating within 15 seconds of putting it one in the room-temperature room. In the snow, this is fantastic, and it fits snuggly so that it easily fits under all jackets and other layers.

      Very warm midlayer

        I was pretty impressed with the warmth of this one. I ordered it as a mid-layer for snowboarding. Had to take it off twice in the early spring months because it was so warm. I ordered the large, I'm 5'10" and 180lbs, and it was pretty snug on me, I have pretty big shoulders. Definitely could be used as an outer layer in dry, mild conditions.

        Extremely tight

          I'm 6'0" 200lbs 35waist 34 1/2 sleeve length and wear Large in almost everything Arc'Teryx. The Large in this I ordered fit like a compression shirt in the chest/torso area but the sleeve length was great. Hopefully the XL I exchanged for will be ok in the chest and not to long in the sleeves now...

          I had the same fit issue as Adam. 6'1", 205lbs 36waist 35" sleeve. I had a large, the sleeves still fit well(long enough), length of shirt in torso was 1/3 down my butt which I like when I'm reaching over head to not get a cold draft, however when fitted with a thin under armor t-shirt as a base layer this large seemed to be pretty snug/compression like. Without the t-shirt base layer, the fit wasn't bad but I ordered the XL for comparison.

          Way tight

            I'm 6'0" 200lbs 35waist 34 1/2 sleeve length and wear Large in almost everything Arc'Teryx. The Large in this I ordered fit like a compression shirt in the chest/torso area but the sleeve length was great. Hopefully the XL I exchanged for will be ok in the chest and not to long in the sleeves now...

            Wish I had one for every day!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: True to size
            • Size Bought: small
            • Height: 5'6"
            • Weight: 155lbs

            This product work really well as a base layer or as a mid layer. It even works great on its own. It is very soft and warm and it layers really well. I am 5'6" and I have a small. Medium probably would work well for me to.

            My third one

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
            • Fit: Runs small
            • Size Bought: Medium
            • Height: 5'8"
            • Weight: 150lbs

            What more needs to be said. I live in a 100 year old house in Montana. This is my standard wear from October to April. I'm out on dog walks 4 times a day, no matter what and the Rho and a shell or the Rho and a puffy are all I ever need.

            I've tried a bunch of Power Stretch tops and the Rho's version is the perfect blend of fuzziness, stretch, and weight (every company seems to get a custom version of Power Stretch).

            i love wearing this thing

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
            • Fit: True to size

            i bought this mainly to wear casually outdoors around my home in michigan in the winter. i have used other base layer shirts in the past but this is the only one i wear now. its very comfortable and very warm. on an average 20 degree fahrenheit day with a bit of wind and in combination with my atom sv hooded jacket i stay pretty comfortable. if you're out hauling wood or doing sustained work in these conditions you may get too hot but you can always just unzip your jacket a bit. i just love this thing, it has finally made my michigan winters bearable becuase i dont like sitting inside all day but hated freezing outside. i also use it on my many vacations out hiking the parks and it is very comfortable to sleep in inside my sleeping bag.

            The WARMEST base layer!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
            • Fit: True to size

            Fit is amazing. Warmer than any other base layer I have tried. It has held up well to the abuse of bc skiing and climbing. Unless its arctic cold, i will only wear this and a shell.

            Great base and/or mid-layer

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: True to size

            I bought the Rho AR a couple of years ago and have been using it for a mid-layer under my shell while skiing, as well as my primary outerwear as I'm out in town with the wife and kids. I recently bought another Rho AR so I wouldn't be suffering while the other one was being washed. Great product. Very warm and breathable. Good odor resistance, too. I'm 5'11", 170 lbs., and a medium fits me perfectly.

            Unanswered Question

            hi, my chest is 44 inches, what size would you recommend for this? I dont live in the US so ordering one and returning it if doesnt fit is not an option. By the way, I wear Large for almost everything. thanks!

            I've tried the previous Rho AR from a...

            I've tried the previous Rho AR from a friend and the Medium was perfect. I'm usually a small in every single other top I've had. Should I stick to the Medium for the revised cut?
