Arc'teryx Men's Rho LTW Zip Neck

Arcteryx has done it; they created the ideal base layer for any activity with the Arcteryx Men's Rho LTW Zip long sleeve shirt. Constructed with soft, itchless, stretch knit merino wool, the Rho LTW insulates even when completely saturated, regulates temperature far better than synthetic long underwear, and resists odor, even on a week-long backcountry trip. A front half zip makes for easy layering and great ventilation and the no-lift gusseted underarms give you the freedom to move without restriction. Using the natural properties of wool to insulate never felt so good as when you're wearing the Arc'teryx Rho LTW Zip Neck top for men.

top of the line
I had tested the LTW Zip over the first week of January and I believe this is a great base layer. I am 5'8'' and 160 and medium fits me just right. It kept me warm and dry. The only reason I didn't give it five stars in comfort is that I always feel any wool being itchy, even merino, despite the fact that this one is very soft. LTW Zip is perfectly tight around the body, including the collar around the neck. At the same time the zipper is so awesome to have when you're putting it on or off, as opposed to dealing with tight turtlenecks that you can hardly squeeze your head through. Another great advantage is no odor from this piece of apparel, which really comes handy when you are skiing for a week every day, and you only need to have with you one base layer, rather than a change of cotton/polyester set you have to change every day, so that you don't stink on the hill like a heard of goats. Overall, this is the best base layer I have ever used, with the only issue for me being the slight itching. Just as with all Arc'teryx products, this one is top of the line!

Great Base Layer
I received the Rho last week, and have had a chance to take it on two MTB rides in the high 30s. Needless to say, it worked very well. The Merino wool does it job in being soft, form-fitting yet strechy, and definitely not itchy. The quality of construction is typical of Arc'teryx: excellent. I am 5'9'', 155lbs and medium build and I must say the medium size is about as tight as would be acceptable. Since I am using it as a baselayer in the cold days, the tight fit is fine, but if you want to wear it as an outer layer on warmer days and you are of similar size, you better have a great body or buy a size larger. The sleeve length is slightly longer than needed, but not much of a problem.

favorite baselayer
I got a rho last year and am planning on getting some more for the upcoming ski season. Now that I am used to the comfort and warmth of merino wool, I wouldn't go back to synthetic materials. After a season of use it seems very durable.
