Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a edit: Good color and width of a headband. It works well in shoulder season days with sunshine but cooler temperatures. However, on hot days, sweat will soak this in less than 2 hrs. Have to strap it to the pack to dry out which it does rather quickly. I would like a thicker band which could last longer on hotter days rather than use several on much warmer days.

This is truly a great pack. I've had several experiences with this pack and its a keeper. Tried a bladder and worked well. 2.5 liter each time. Also shifted some gear around inside, no problem. Once the straps that adjust the weight and your body are completed, its done. The outside straps seemed to much, however, I ended up utilizing all of them in some fashion as the load became lighter or different gear was utilized. The only downside is the bottom can seep in water on wet ground so put a garbage bag on the bottom. I would like to strap my tent on the outside and its wet sometimes in morning, but solved it with waterproof sack so no other gear would get moist. . Just a very complete pack. Almost wished I had got the 2400.

Again, they kept the bigger collar than the previous ones. This is a base layer. Now, they made this one dimensional. The collar is too high for another layer. So, it will stay a base layer shirt with too high a collar, and not a base layer with capability to add layers. Disappointed again A nice color though. (lliad)

Super fit with all the adjustments between utilizing the rain cover or tucking it in. Once you get the fit, you'll love it. Sweat band is very useful. Dry's quick inside and out. If I could find a drawback, not a flaw, is if your overnight backpack is packed too high, the back end of the hat touches. Well built, adjustable, stable, and reliable even after being abused. Step up from the Sombero. I'v washed it several times as well. Update from a summer of backpacking: This is the bomb.

Great length and material for wearing on those brisk days. Conversation piece? The waist band is a little thin and lumps over which my be probable to my extra role on my waist. Long lasting and enjoy wearing these.

I have 2 of these older version while ordering this one on sale. Surprise...they change a good thing. First the put the Arcteryx symbol on sleeve rather than a small blue rectangular name and symbol. That was a good change. However, this is a base layer. And they doubled the materiel on top and bottom of the collar seam. So now its mid layer for moderate weather...I guess. Disappointed...but will keep it. Never given this company a less than 5 stars. This time they deserve a low 4.

The great part is the pattern and length in moderate weather without being cold gear, which is too thick but covers up. The Butt could use slightly more room but stays firm without having to continually pull up. Will work well for striping to swim in Alpine lakes this summer too. Any smell from leakage is minimal as well.

Great fit with my Butt. As a skier and hiker, I finally appreciate the length as to not inter fear with the heavy socks. I have a 36/38 waist and ordered large. So true to size and elastic waist line is perfect. After the wash the leg calf tightened to take away the only fear. I would give a 5 star, however, the tag on the back had what appeared like 11 different language tags on it. I din't want wear a book attached to this pants. Was careful to remove with a scissors then razor blade. Still cut in the material and had to sew up. That effort wasn't necessary step, therefore, I'm pouting with a 4 star rather than returning for a new one which the mishap could happen again. Never seen anything like this and I buy plenty of Marmot gear too. Wished I taken a picture.

So very comfortable. This purchase was an add on to the existing line. Can't believe I spend this much on UW. But the comfort level, longevity of wearing well, and versatility for activity makes it an all round utility worth the price.

This is a go to shirt. The material is so soft yet durable. It competes now with my Arc'terc Motus. The Motus can be worn into the 30's but this shirt is better in the low 40's up to 50's as the wind slightly pushes through it. Pay attention to sizing as its different than other brands with a mixture of L and XL features. I choose the Large when I normally go XL. The collar locks up tight and zipper length is perfect for cooling without going to far down. The length is perfect to wear over or tucked in depending on extra clothing and weather. The chest is a hair tighter (45 chest size)than the Motus but looks worthy and works well . If I was forced to say something adverse, it would be the sleeves. The length of sleeve is only slightly long but, their is 3 inches of slack or baggy-ness on the sleeve just before the wrist tightens up to keep it all together. Good looking two tone colors that allow you to differentiate. Excellent overall performance shirt as a first or second layer. Holds true to shape after many washes too. But fit IS subject to trying on. I wanted another one but sale price went away.

Citron color gets compliments and great visibility. Good one layer shell in wind and rain. The hood has a great fit too which I roll it up in the car or pack. Comfortable collar fit without hood too. Sleeves just roll over the wrist perfectly...with or without gloves. However, with high humanity which does happen only occasionally in the PNW, it will trap moisture inside for you to get somewhat wet on the way down from a hike . But this coat still works well. Great price and athletic type fit.

These took getting used too. It has a inner pocket for your package which felt weird, but after several uses, it made sense. Nothing shifts. Very nice moisture wick waist band and quality cotton underwear that can handle any leakage. Going for another pair. Pleasantly surprised and satisfied.

Waist band is not too low or too high. Feels wonderful and doesn't slip up, down or around while active hiking. So no adjustments. This will last much longer than cotton underwear too. I may have to step up to the elite fabric.

The color shows a bright blue but description show Midnight Blue. It is a dark midnight blue with yellow striping. And this is my second purchase on these shirts. This one appears to be and is slightly lighter or not as thick. Perfect. I like it even better now. This will provide more performance options too. Great price and product.
