Arcteryx Satoro AR Zip Neck
A midweight Men's Merino Wool base layer, the Arc'teryx Satoro AR Zip Neck provides warmth and comfort while you ski. Merino Wool's natural insulating properties are enhanced with the addition of nylon cores, considerably extending its strength and durability, ensuring the Arc'teryx Satoro AR Zip Neck can be used season after season, wherever you ski on the mountain. Merino Wool's natural odour resistance makes the Arc'teryx Satoro AR Zip Neck ideal for a multitude of winter activities including prolonged backcountry use.
Durable, Natural Comfort
Nucliex STR fabric consists of a nylon core fibre, encased in spun Merino Wool. Elastane is incorporated to provide an element of stretch, ensuring effortless active movement and a close fit that improves the ability of the Arc'teryx Satoro AR Zip Neck to wick moisture quickly away from your skin, improving thermal efficiency. The nylon core enables the natural properties of Merino to work next-to-skin, while extending its strength and durability for extended use in physically demanding situations.
A natural fibre, Merino Wool is used in premium pieces designed to be worn for aerobic activities in cold conditions. It excels in regulating body temperature, providing warmth without overheating, by responding to your core temperature. This means it can warm you when cold, and be cooling when you're warm. The Arc'teryx Satoro AR Zip Neck's Merino component absorbs moisture, but its plentiful air pockets retain its insulating properties when wet, while the wools' natural fibres stop you feeling wetness. Merino is one of the softest kinds of wool as it has finer fibres and smaller scales, making the Arc'teryx Satoro AR Zip Neck superbly comfortable and able to offer a great warmth to weight ratio.
The Arc'teryx Satoro AR has a deep front zip that enables easy on/off and speedy refrigeration on demanding routes and long traverses. Its taller collar adds further warmth and comfort, and super-smooth merrow stitching prevents rubbing and chaffing after repeated movement. The Arc'teryx Satoro AR Zip Neck has a single laminated chest pocket with a laminated zip, to keep mini-essentials or a credit card secure.
Tried, Tested & Recommended
Tried, tested and recommended by Team Escape 2, the Arc'teryx Satoro AR Zip Neck works exceptionally well for cold weather activities. This is my base layer of choice for skiing - I've used it in really cold conditions and for spring skiing too - its ability to maintain warmth is superb when the snow rolls in, and there's a long ride to the top, but when faced with a hike in springtime sunshine, this base layer was still comfortable worn under my Ski Jacket. And in the summer, I've worn mine camping, sailing, walking and riding, so the Arc'teryx Satoro AR Zip Neck won't lay dormant at the bottom of a drawer for most of the year!

A very good fit, long sleeve keeping wrists warm. Comfortable against the skin, warm and wickers well. One of the best base layers I have, for hiking and trekking. Time will tell how durable and long lasting this garment will be.
