Arcteryx Men's Motus LS Crew

Although originally meant for runners, the Motus crew works great in a variety of conditions.

The Motus LS Crew is a technically-designed, trim fitting long sleeve shirt for a wide range of high-output and aerobic-intensive activities. Extremely light yet durable, it is superior to other brands which are bulkier, heavier, and suffer from poorer fits.

The anatomical design of the Motus fits your body nice and the sleeves are long enough to cover your arms. The construction’s stretch eliminates the need for elastic yarns retaining moisture and allows a performance fit that moves with the body. The sheer construction makes the shirt very light, airy, and comfortable.

The fabric is soft and silky smooth and feels much better than cheaper synthetics, so you're always comfortable. Made of technical piece iPhasic SL, an advanced bi-component fabric, composed of multidimensional polyester yarns that wick moisture from the fibre plus polypropylene yarns with encapsulated silver ions for long-lasting odour control. Polypropylene gives a soft touch to the hydrophobic jersey knit textile with mechanical stretch. The material is very light weight, wicks moisture, dries quickly and disperses odours. The smooth outer face slides easily under other layers. Hydrophobic fibers next to the skin prevent you from feeling clammy when you're cooling down.

You can use the shirt for aerobic activities you expect to perspire. You can wear it on a super-hot day with no sunburn. It provides outstanding sun protection so you don't have to apply sunscreen to your arms. A tough of UV protection gives you the confidence to stay out without worrying about skin damage.

Even when the temps are rising into the mid 70's to 80's, it feels like you're wearing nothing. It breathes so well, that a light wind will cool you even in direct sun. The material keeps you dry and it stretches to the movement of your body. The fabric wicks away sweat very well and even if you sweat profusely, it will not stick to your body.

The Arc'teryx Motus Crew Long Sleeve is a technically-designed, next-to-skin, fashionable top with a longer hip-length cut that works with shorts and tights. It fits the body athletically. The arms are just the right length, seams are all extremely flat. Flatlock construction reduces chafing. It doesn’t rub or chaff, even after hours on the trail.

The shirt has lower volume for reduced bulk. Use it as base layer or alone. Arc'teryx trim fit is sized for a base layer and a trim synthetic or down filled mid-layer.

This layering piece is great for touring or cold-weather, when you're climbing from hot to cold weather, or for warmer-weather runs you don't want to overheat. Even though it was designed for runners it has been super nice as a base layer for alpine climbing.
