For every run, hike, bike ride, or climb in the sun, a measurable amount of perspiration is bound to happen. Built to counteract the inevitable, the Arc'teryx Men's Short Sleeve Pelion Comp Shirt is designed to wick away that quantifiable sweat and dry quickly. Thanks to its merino-wool Nucliex fabric, this tee is odor-resistant and keeps you comfortable throughout your athletic endeavor while the Alatorre fabric is strategically placed on the shoulders to discourage premature wear and tear often experienced when wearing a pack or extra layers. Not to mention, the Pelion is outfitted with gusseted underarms, merrow stitching, and a classic crew neck construction that makes it both timeless and practical.

In the process of phasing out my synthetic hiking shirts for merino wool ones. Intrigued by Arcteryx's description of Nucliex fabric - which is merino wool strands wrapped around a nylon core, which is supposed to enhance the durability of the fabric. The shirt feels made from regular merino wool. Does not itch. Wore it out for a hike in 30 dec C hot and humid weather. The shirt wicks like a typical merino shirt would. Shirt dries fast under air-conditioning - odor resistance comes naturally. Fabric weight seems to be similar to Icebreaker 150. I will "baby" this shirt more since it is the most expensive hiking shirt i have right now. Only time will tell if its durable enough for a several weeks long backpacking trip
picture says it all - shot straight out of the bag
seems like a rather delicate fabric -one for the office rather than the bush. finer than any icebreaker garment i have owned. had hoped the blend would actually represent an improvement on durability...
