ARC'TERYX MEASUREMENT and FIT GUIDE
HOW to MEASURE:
Chest / Bust - Measure around your chest / bust, holding the measuring tape under your armpit.
Waist - Measure around the natural waist, which is often the narrowest part of your waist.
Hip - Measure around your hips at the widest part.
Sleeve Length - With your arms in a slightly bent postion, measure from the center of the back of your neck, along the length of your arm, to the wrist.
Inseam / Pant Length - From a standing position, measure from your crotch to your ankle.
Dress Length - Measuring the front of the garment from the neckline at shoulder to the hem edge.
Head Circumference - Measure the full circumference around the widest part of your head.
Hand Length - Measure from the tip of your middle finger to the base of the palm.
Hand Width - Measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles, excluding the thumb.
• Please note that all the info provided above refers to body measurements, and NOT the dimensions of the garment.
FIT TYPE INFO and DETAILS:
Next to Skin Fit - These snugly-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin to enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Garments in this fit category when constructed using Arc'teryx's heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, and users should consider selecting a larger size to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this layering system as a mid layer option.
Trim Fit - Trim-fitted garments share the motion-friendly traits with Arc'teryx "Athletic" fit garments, but are patterned with lower volume for reduced bulk. These close-fitting pieces layer well under other garments.
Athletic Fit - This is the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit. These complete patterns utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion by minimizing excess bulk. Easy layering under or over each item extends seasonal versatility and comfort.
Relaxed Fit - Relaxed fit garments rely on higher volume patterns and a reduced amount of articulation to offer roomy mobility.
Expedition Fit - Cut roomier than the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and suitable for winter/extreme conditions, Expedition (XPD) fit garments are cut larger to accommodate multiple layers without binding or restricting movement.
• You can find the fit type and additional fit info for Arc'teryx styles in the product description FEATURES and SPECIFICATIONS.

Warm warm warmThis top is so warm, it's almost better without an underlayer. Then you can feel the fleecy goodness next to your skin. This top is warm as an underlayer in the winter or outerlayer in the spring or autumn, and the colour is fabulous (I have the red). What I don't like about it is being 5'11, the proportions in the waist/hips of the top are a bit wrong. It flares out instead of being close to the body, and it's not quite long enough. Though this just gives me a good excuse to practice proper tucking-in of my underlayers into my trousers, so the problem is easily rectified. Overall, this top is easily worth the money paid for it and will last for ages.

Very comfortable, looks new for a long timeA great piece for layering on very cold days as it is quite form fitting and sits well under outer jackets. The outside is smooth (which makes sponging grime off very easy) and the inside is very soft fleece. Keeps its shape and colour for ages and as the exterior is smooth, is does not pill. I'm 5'10 / 140 lb and wear a small (I only fit a thermal layer underneath). The arm length is fine however it is pretty short through the body. If you have a freakishly long torso then maybe this is not the top for you.

great performance topLove this underwear top! i ordered this on 8/18 and it was shipped on 8/19 and delivered on 8/22 on the regular free shipping offer. i believe the whole thing is made of polartec power stretch, which i think is better than the comparable north face aurora fleece that's partially polartec. more than twice expensive than the latter but i thought i was worth it. very form-fitting.
