The Rho AR Zip Neck from Arc'teryx is an excellent mid-layer for aerobic activities or expedition weight insulation for cold winter sports. Form fitting versions for men and women feature Polartec Power Stretch, which wicks moisture and prevents constriction. Its thermally efficient zip neck foundation piece is suited to cold temperatures and slower paced activities. The plush interior has a rich, warm texture. Its trim, next-to-body fit and Spandex content increases thermal efficiency by keeping fabric in constant contact with the body.
Rho, the 17th letter of the Greek alphabet, carries many meanings. You might not find it on wiki, but in this instance, the Arc'teryx Rho AR Zip-Neck Top signifies a midweight thermal baselayer. Polartec Power Stretch fabric offers warmth without much weight, and it wicks moisture to keep your temperature constant. A trim fit prevents sweat from accumulating on your skin, thus reducing the probability of sweat-induced shivers. Unzip the neck zipper when your core temperature climbs. Wear the Rho on its own or over a silkweight shirt for high-intensity aerobic activity in cold weather, or layer the Rho under jackets and shells for less intense endeavors in single-digit temps.
