ARC'TERYX NEXT to SKIN FIT: These snug-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin and enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Arc'teryx next to skin fit pieces constructed with their heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, so you should consider sizing up to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this as a mid layer option if you are building a layering system. Also check out the size guide to learn how to calculate your body measurements before selecting a size.

"Super comfortable, warm, long and nicely adjustable to vent with zip."
I got this for cooler weather mtn biking here in SoCal. I know, cool to us is 45F and super cold is 35F. I absolutely love this for several reasons. It is extremely comfortable and feels like fleece on the inside. The body is long and has a drop tail so it stays down and doesn't show plumber's crack when I ride and the arms are long enough for me which says a lot as I am 6'5" with a long torso and arms and have a hard time in this area. With the collared zip neck I find it easy to zip up to start the ride and then drop the zip as the hills get me warmed up on those cold morning rides. I have a similar model without the zip and collar but this one is more versatile. I do buy these one size larger than my normal Arcteryx size as I am not after the cling wrap fit, it is definitely not baggy one size up, just a nice fit. I look forward to using it for winter snow hiking where the temps will be even lower.
Just received the RHO in Oxblood. Color is spot on as I did not want a true red to highlight this great product in in public. Product is form fitting and much warmer than I thought. Was going to use a base layer under the RHO, but does not require/need one. Sleeves are a bit long but are tapered at the end. Overall, another great Arcteryx product
Recently I bought this for some future cold weather hikes we have planned. Got to try it out this weekend in 34 degree (probably colder) and rain. Like a BOSS I only had a 40 degree bag, since the low was only supposed to be 40 degrees. I would have been freezing if it wasn't for this shirt. It kept me toasty warm the entire hike, night, and morning after. I love it and really look forward to using it for our upcoming whitney and mammoth trips this summer. Well worth the money and my girlfriend says I look super hot in it. So that alone makes it worth it. Plus I noticed a few envious looks along the trail and even got a couple complements. In all seriousness this is hands down the best trail base layer Ive ever owned. Im 6ft 185 with broad shoulders and the Large fits me perfectly.
I chose this as a base layer and mid layer. Around the house I wear it when the wood stove isn't cranked up and to bed to stay warm. It fits snug all the way around and has a zippered neck which I can crank down when I get warm.I primarily bought this as a back packing top but I think only on cooler days will I be wearing this. I am going to keep it for around camp and sleeping. My patagonia cap 2's are going to be my hiking top. I will use this in lieu of a capilene 3 or 4 top. With a fleece and shell over this I am quite warm. I hope this review helps you and I would buy this product again just to get it in a different color. I bought it in yellow and the dirt/pizza stains show. I am going to opt for a darker color if I am going to be wearing this on a thru hike of the AT.
