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.

"I climbed a mountain in this and I loved it."
So far I have only used this base layer once to climb a mountain, but I am loving this base layer so much. I was very hesitant about the zipper because I was worried it would be cold against my skin, but there are some little fabric flaps that you can't see in the pictures that protect your skin. In addition, I found that even after I was sweating, I didn't feel wet, and it managed to dry fast enough not to freeze at all after I removed some other layers. The fit was great (I am 5'3, 110lbs, and the small was perfect). This base layer moved with me and kept me comfortable all day long. The only bad thing is that in the description it says that this is supposed to smell less bad, but at the end of my trip, this thing smelt just as awful as I did. Overall, I thought this base layer was perfect. Just don't count on it to mask your smell.
I bought this base layer for a ski/boarding trip and felt it worked fantastic to keep me warm. Love the zip on it; felt kind of tight at first but ended up working out well after layering. I am guessing this is part of the design as well as helps to trap heat. Not only does it function very well as a base layer it also looks very nice and compliments a woman's figure. I would suggest this base layer to anyone looking to ski/board at colder times or if you want to only wear a light base layer and a wind breaker during spring skiing. Great buy!
