Push through grueling trail runs and multi-pitch climbs with the help of the cool-wearing comfort of the Arc'teryx Men's Motus Long-Sleeve Crew Shirt. This performance top is ideal as a standalone piece in cooler weather, but also layers nicely under your hardshell or fleece in cold weather. The trim fit sits close to the body, but without inhibiting movements required for fast-paced activities.

I live in SoCal and the trail gets hot (85+) at this time of year with very little shade cover. Im a fitness guy and like to push hard on the trail, generating a lot of sweat so I typically choose a major sports brand "tech" type tank top to try and keep me cool. The week before getting this shirt, I got seriously burnt and left with a tank top tan and burnt face after a long trek. I then purchased this shirt needing something to protect my upper body from the sun and to keep my body temperature low.
Yesterday I completed a 17 miler and was on the trail for over 7 hours wearing the motus crew the entire time. This shirt performed above and beyond expectation, kept me completely sunburn free, was extremely comfortable and kept me feeling extremely cool. This shirt is ridiculously breathable, feels better than wearing a tank top, any sweat that did collect evaporated quickly, never leaving any kind of sweat mark on me which is great for photos. Incredible shirt and easily outperformed any of the other tech tops I have used before. As an army infantry veteran I give this piece of clothing 5 stars!
Sizing: I am 5'9, 180lbs, muscular with a large upper body (46in shoulder) and the large fits me exactly without being overly tight. Fits close to the body but is not compression by any means.
