Arc'teryx Phase AR Crew - Women's - 2010 BCS
Arc'teryx designed the Women's Phase AR Crew with its smooth Phasic AR fabric to create a supremely versatile, year-round base layer. Phasic AR's fuzzy interior draws perspiration away from your skin and disperses it on the fabric's smooth outer face for fast evaporation. It stretches, breathes, and resists odors too. And since the Phase AR top is nice and light, you'll find yourself wearing it for far more than skiing ... it loves an evening hike or climb as much as you do. The bonus? Princess seams and figure-friendly shaping make sure you still look like a girl three pitches off the ground.

Fabric felt strange in comparison to the Patagonia silkweight and the merino wool. Tested on a full day hike in temps from 50-80's. Evaporated sweat faster than my heart was pounding while ascending with temps in the low 80's. I would avoid wearing in higher temps. With a primaloft vest, it was fine in the 50's, except with wind gusts. I also used it on the last heat of the Spartan Beast NorCal. It was soaked in rain and mud, yet kept me warm and comfy from afternoon to sunset.
The fit is fine, just order up. I wear a small in Patagonia, but the medium AR fits well.
