It fits well, is well constructed, looks good, and best of all ~ does the job to keep you warm. I had this on with only a Hawaiian shirt at 8500 ft in the snow and was plenty warm. I also like the fact that they treat it with silver-ion something so that if you sleep in it, the treatment keeps odor causing bacteria at bay. That's a handy idea.

I've been using a silk top up to now (and still do on occasion) but this top is a nice alternative for cold weather warmth. The cuff length is good, the material is not fragile, and I like the front zip that allows you to regulate heat a bit more than having 'only' a crew neck or 'only' a turtle neck.

Great layering piece or stand alone piece. Women's has a zipper shoulder pocket. Exceptional fit. Great wicking capabilities. Would suggest everyone to get one.

- OMCgear refers to the men's version

An Arc'teryx Women's Rho LT Zip Neck Top serves as an ideal foundation for backcountry travelers, with a tailored stretchy fit that caters specifically to the backcountry lady. Arc'teryx paid classic attention to detail with this piece, from the lightweight laminated arm pocket to the underarm gussets that let you lift your arms without your shirt riding up. The fuzzy inner face wicks moisture away from the skin during year-round activity, and Arc'teryx even applied a silver ion treatment to this soft Powerflex material so you can be active all day long and stay funk-free.
