Arc'teryx Men's Phase AR Crew LS 2017
An incredibly versatile piece, the Arc'teryx Men's Phase AR Crew LS 2017 is a mid-weight base layer top that will keep you warm and comfortable while taking part in a multitude of cold weather activities. The Phase AR Crew LS is made of Arc'teryx's Next Gen Phasic AR fabric which when worn next to your skin feels warm and comfortable, and wicks moisture away to maintain an even temperature. This updated fabric feels softer, has greater stretch and evacuates moisture quicker than its predecessor. The 2017 version also features updated style lines, improving its fit, and has a new odour control finish too.
Warm and Wicking
The Arc'teryx Men's Phase AR Crew LS 2017 is brilliant at keeping you warm and wicking moisture away from your body, in practice this means that you can keep going for longer without the need to stop and remove a layer. It also ensures that you don't freeze when you stop, i.e. riding a chairlift back to the top, and also that you don't overheat when you get back inside.
Hybrid Mapping utilizes lighter weight Phasic SL fabric under the arms, reducing the heat where you don't need it, and reducing any fabric bunching that may be irritating when you're active. Flatlock seam construction improves the feel next to skin and prevents chaffing.
Fresh for Longer
The Arc'teryx Men's Phase AR Crew Neck LS has a new DAO - Durable Anti Odour - finish to keep your base layer top fresher for longer. And when its time to launder, you can wash your Phase base layer in the washing machine on a cold wash and it will be dry in no time (if you can't wait a couple of hours for that to happen, you can tumble dry low).
Next Gen Phasic AR Fabric - The Technical Bit
All-Round (AR) Phasic base layer fabric is engineered to provide comfort for high output activities in cold weather, Phasic functions particularly well for stop/go sports. Its bi-component structure has two different yarns, one 100% polyester Delta yarn and the other 100% polyester Carat yarn with a DWR water repellent coating. These two types of yarns produce a fabric that works in three stages:
Stage 1 - Active/Wicking Phase
On entering an active phase, the Delta yarns rapidly pull moisture away from the skin, while the Carat yarns stay dry.
Stage 2 - Intense/Dispersion Phase
At this point the Delta yarns spread moisture out across the surface of the garment, which helps to regulate your body temperature. The Carat yarns stay dry and prevent the fabric form holding on to moisture.
Stage 3 - Rest/Drying phase
Now, the Carat yarns along with the broadly dispersed moisture from the Delta yarns combine to allow Phasic fabric to dry quickly during a rest phase, keeping you warm and comfortable.
Brushed Interior/Smooth Exterior
This is mid weight base layer top works brilliantly for skiing and many other winter sports - with its mechanical stretch, moisture evacuating properties, soft brushed interior and smooth exterior - comfort, warmth, freedom of movement and easy layering are guaranteed.
