With a slim build and at 5'7" this pull over fit well in a medium having normal sleeve length.

Great multi purpose fleece
July 01, 2011
Arc quality fleece top which wears very well, a little thicker than the Delta line so it works well as a sweater in colder temps. Probably about a 200 in fleece thickness, works very well as a warming layer in a shell, the zip works great for shedding heat. I gave the durability a good but that is only because I have not had the fleece that long, Arc quality probably means it will last for a loooooong time. Fitting is typical, I need a xlarge even though I usually take a large size. I am very happy with this fleece and Altrec always make the shopping experience positive.Pros: Build quality, Performance
December 05, 2010
I am generally a big fan of Arc'teryx. This item has a solid build and good durability. It does wear a bit on the small side.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
So great I bought 2!
January 18, 2010
The moment you pull this jacket it on you feel the warmth and perfect fit. While I am a Patagonia fan, this one is equal to or better than any R2 or R3. After wearing it in one color I bought another in black and just enjoy the casual, yet fitted look to the jacket.
Wear it everyday
December 11, 2009
I love this thing. I wear it everyday, it's really comfortable. It has a very soft wool-like fleece material. It works great in cool temperatures alone, but wind blows through this thing and the bottom of it doesn't wrap tightly around my waist so wind blows up my shirt. However if it gets below freezing, you can tuck it in and put a shell over it. The fleece sort of repels water, and if it does get wet (like submerged in water), it evaporates much faster than cotton does. As a mid-layer and I think it'd be adequate to around 15 degrees with activity. Well-made.
excellent feel and versatile
January 08, 2008
This is by far my most comfortable and warm zip. I wear it around the house on cold northern Ohio days and if the weather is just a little chilly out I will wear it outside without a shell. Just Awesome!
September 24, 2007
my favorite , warm and light
Warm, comfortable and stylish
December 16, 2007
My husband wears it all the time. Great product, hangs well on him, good quality!
Perfect midlayer and it looks great
February 16, 2011
The Apache AR zip is a perfect midlayer to either go under a shell or by itself on milder days. I'm 6'1" 165 lbs with a 33 waist and the medium fit me perfectly. Although I usually buy a large for most products, with Arcteryx sizes, a medium fits better for me. I also tried the Patagonia R1 pullover. I liked the R1, but it wasn't quite warm enough for me. Also, I just liked the looks of the Apache AR much better than the Patagonia R1. This fleece looks like it is not going to ball very much except under harsh conditions. It does like to collect lint when the humidity is low.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, looks great, Cons: Cost
November 23, 2006
A great arcteryx product , always give you the best warm , keeps the chill out
Another great product from Arc'teryx
May 10, 2010
Very comfortable and relatively light weight. Fit is sporty and it has weathered many outings without a scratch. This is one of my favorite pullovers to wear for just about any condition. It is not as compressible as some of the lighter weight pullovers but it makes up for that in durability. Great product!
Great for layering
May 24, 2005
Very light, compact, and quick to dry. The fit isn't exactly small, as some claim this manufacturer's patterns to be. Rather, it is close-fitting, although unconstricting. The small-diameter sleeves in particular make it especially easy to slip another garment over this, which you may well want to, as it is more of a pullover shirt than a jacket.
December 09, 2010
this jacket fits nice to the body good for bushwhacking. nice and warm yet breathable great for mountain climates. very nicePros: Great design
Great as a gift
December 06, 2010
I bought this for my brother who is a bigger guy and the sizing recommendation was just right for a fitted look. He found it to be enough to wear just that to go out on a cool night (say temps in the 50s).Pros: Great design
October 13, 2010
it's well made, light but very warm. unlike the newer arcteryx jackets, like my gamma lt, this one is true to size and is not big and loose. overall i like this product very muchPros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
November 10, 2010
Very light and warm. I feel this could be the outer layer in California for the whole winter. The fit is toward large comparing to other Arcteryx I owned. overall very satified.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
May 24, 2005
Soft and has good design. It's really fit for anyone likes the Arceryx.
Top of the line
September 12, 2010
I had bought this to use a mid-layer while skiing. When the shipment arrived and I tried it on, was extremely pleased with the fit and style that I decided that it's definitely nice enough to wear as an outside layer on cool fall days. Another great product from Arc'teryx.
June 20, 2005
Great, well fitting polar shirt, nice long zipper
November 01, 2010
Outstanding. I bought this last year. It has held up well. Warm and very comfortable. Soft. Looks great. Fits true to size.Great as shirt with or without layering.If layering, use thin lightweight base layer. Will consider buying another as gift during holidays to my sons. Arc'teryx products are durable and look great they are athletic fit without much room underneath for anything but thin, light base layer.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use
January 12, 2010
Bought this for my oldest son and it is a great midweight jacket for our north Alabama winters!
excellent mid-weight fleece
June 03, 2005
this is an excellent piece, with a nice non-polyester feeling to it. very warm, and perfect as a pullover or sweatshirt alternative. It's not the most compressible, so I mainly use it for town wear or over a tee and then with a shell.
December 29, 2010
I love the way this fits. Great high tech material that is soft and warm. Nice cuffs on the sleeves. Very well made.Pros: Build quality
June 24, 2005
A very excellent jacket for 3-season wearing.
Apache AR Zip
July 30, 2005
From its classic looks to its simple comfort and fit, the AR Zip is top knotch. Had a chance to wear it in colder windier climes recently and it was all I needed during a long hike. And the fitted cut to the shirt added to the protection provided by the Thermal Pro fleece. Like all my outdoor performance and technical clothes, I can't wait until winter to live in my AR Zip. May have to add another Zip to my growing Arc'Teryx collection.
Snug fit, repels water
December 15, 2009
The fit is closer to the body than the covert zip. It also a little more wind resistant. Works well under a soft-shell.
Versatile mid layer and the laminated arm patches are great
February 16, 2010
This is now my "go to" layer for just about any activity. The fit is athletic but comfortable and the style is very versatile. Compared to the Covert Cardigan this piece appears to be a little more robust. The laminated arm patches should help prevent wear and are a great feature. Recommended!
February 17, 2007
"Next to skin" fit, yet very comfortable and warm. Great to wear it in the slopes...impeccable looks if you want to wear it at nights. Ideal mid-layer for very cold days. Statue and Sangria colors are simply AWESOME. I was expecting nothing less from Arc'terix.
Great pullover for layering
December 15, 2009
This is a great example of the perfect layering Polartec top. It is very warm by itself, but also is a great heat preserver underneath a hard shell.
I Like the Covert Better
December 09, 2009
I own both the Apache and several Arc'teryx Coverts. While the Apache is a very nice sweater, for $11 more I prefer the Covert. The Covert is a little more substantial than the Apache (15.7 oz vs 13.6 oz - from the Arc'teryx website), which is nice if you're buying for warmth. The Covert also looks more like a traditional sweater, not having the nylon pocket on the breast or the nylon forearm patches. On the other hand, the Apache is easier to get on and off since it's a 1/2 zip as opposed to the 1/4 zip of the Covert. A caution on sizing, as someone else mentioned, the Apache is cut much trimmer than the Covert. I'm 6'1'', 190 lbs, and I normally wear a Large in sweaters and jackets. A Large Covert fits me perfectly so I'd say it's sized comparably to other clothing. In the Apache, I need a XL - a Large fit me more like a snug base layer than a sweater. You can't go wrong with either sweater, however - Arc'teryx makes great gear. If you want a lighter, polartec sweater that's easier to slip on and off, the Apache is for you.
So soft, so cozy~~
December 07, 2009
So soft, so cozy, great for running errands, everyday wear All you need is a altrec zip-t and this overtop and your set until it starts hiting the negatives.
I like this sweater!
October 07, 2009
I like this sweater! The fit is good. I always wear this sweater. It keeps me warm without getting me too hot. But, I enjoy the fact that Arc'Teryx makes clothes that are unique and extremely functional. I would highly recommend this sweater.
layering with style
January 04, 2010
A great fleece. Very comfortable, very soft. I wear it almost everybody. It also looks really good. I am 5'8" and 155lb, the medium fits me perfectly. I highly recommend this piece.
January 03, 2007
The Arc'teryx Apache AR Zip is so nice that I've bought more than one. It's warm, has a unique look and feel, and it is made with quality craftsmanship. The only drawback is that it has a very slim profile, so if you are overweight, the sizing might not work for you. Yes, Arc'teryx products might be a little pricier than other brands, but they're worth it!
Apache AR Zip
January 15, 2012
When the weather is cool or damp and I get involved in outdoor fun the Apache AR Zip is my first choice.It will keep you warm,and comfortable allowing you to enjoy your outdoor activity.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value, great wicking
April 11, 2011
This is a great fleece sweater and durable midlayer. It is a light and warm(only a windless day). But it dosen't keep your body heat against wind. So, it isn't fit for mountaineering a stand alone in cold weather but it is extremely warm in some ferociously cold weather under goretex hardshell. Expensive but stylish good look.
Great for layering
January 24, 2011
I wear this pullover for layering in frigid conditions. It keeps you pretty warm, and it is not baggy at all. My only complaint is that the description on the website makes the pullover appear much browner than it actually is. Mine is more green than brown. The pullover is very refined and sophisticated, and I think I made a good purchase.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Good looks, nice feel to it
January 06, 2008
A great looking pullover that is versatile. Fits really snug but not tight. I'm 6'1" 190 lbs and the large works pretty well. Could be comfortable in 40-50 degree weather with this over a single layer (t-shirt)
July 03, 2007
GREAT! It kept me warm and comfortable for 22 days on Denali June 007 expedition. The BEST. Excellent 2nd layer under my 900 down parka when traversing Denali's 18,500 ft. Pass and on to the summit! I plan to purchase another one soon for my Hamalyan trip. Arc'teryx YOU are The BEST!
December 15, 2009
Very warm and soft. True to size.
December 04, 2010
My absolute favorite base layer- bought them last year and it looks like I just took them out of the package! I am 5'7 and the medium fits great, and works under a thick jacket. I have two of these and I wear them on the real cold days, have worn them on not so cold days and I tend to find myself overheating.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
January 31, 2007
This sweater is deceptively warm and flamboyantly stylish. Sizing is a little tricky because, as described, it runs a little small, but not so much that you would size down. Suffice it to say, this is designed for a fit body. I highly recommend ordering this in the statue color - It is beautiful and unique.
Wonderful jacket for layering
November 30, 2008
This is a top-quality layering piece that fits well. It is comfortable without a bunch of extra fabric to bunch up. I purchased the XL size and am 6' and 210 pounds and it is the right size. This is great worn over a base layer or as a mid-layer with my Gamma LT Pullover to cut the wind. The zipper makes it easy to adjust so I don't get too hot when snowshoeing. I will be buying other colors of this top in the future. This top is Made in Canada.
November 10, 2010
I bought this for my husband last Christmas (2009) and it still looks brand new almost a year later. He loves it and wears it quite frequently on cold days. This was a great purchase.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever
February 28, 2009
Nice 40-60 degree pullover for around town or mid-layer for a chilly Friday night football game. True to size...I'm 5'11 and 185 pounds (44 Chest-32 Waist) the large fits perfect. I've already made a mental note not to tumble dry. If you have concerns about size or length...go with the XL.
Looks great and functional
February 23, 2009
I purchased the XL, I am tall; 6'6" and thin; about 210 lbs and both the length and width is fine. I use for underlayering during the winter and just around the house when it is cold. Looks great and functional
Technical AND good looking
November 11, 2010
One of my favorite Arcteryx items. Warm Thermal Pro fleece but has a wool tweedy look to it. Good as a mid-to-heavyweight insulating layer, but looks good enough to wear by itself around town. I especially like the elbow patches to reduce wear. Farily trim fit, as Acteryx should be. I'm 6-3 220 lb and the XL fits great, but snug.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost
June 11, 2011
I would recommend the Arcteryx Apache pullover to anyone looking for a pullover that is lightweight and very comfortable. The only drawback is the price and its inability to stand up to a thorough washing. However, this product lives up to the Arcteryx standard.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Wears quickly, Cost
January 17, 2007
Nice close fit and excellent fleece to use a layer or a nice option to wear to work as well. Arc'teryx comes through again!
One warm awesome layer!
January 26, 2008
This is a high quality insulating layer. It is a little expensive compare to other brands, but Arc'teryx made high quality products.
March 01, 2011
I bought this as one of my first Arc'teryx items for the wardrobe for the office not the crag. I was drawn to the wool sweater weave look and the professor like patches on the elbows. Pocket zip is very flush and non-bulky yet still holds a cell phone or slim wallet or pen and flip pad. It has held up well to office abuses (coffee spills, tea and pen marks) and rec'd a few compliments. I wear it often with a tie and jeans. I got it in buckwheat (gold) a good autumn to winter color.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: not cheap
August 11, 2011
This jacket is great for anything. It fits well and is true to size. Perfect for when you need to grab something for a hike or even around town. The quality is amazing and durable.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
April 14, 2010
Apache AR zip is a light insulating layer that's perfect alone on sunny days or layered beneath a waterproof and breathable shell when hiking in cool weather conditions.
Men's Apache AR Zip
December 24, 2010
This fleece has turned out to be better than I'd hoped... it looks great, very nice quality, comes out of the wash looking brand new, and makes a perfect mid layer for skiing. A little on the spendy side, and worth every penny.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Great to wear to keep warm
October 31, 2011
I'm a fan of Arc'teryx gear and this item did not disappoint. I bought it to wear under my hard shell and it worked beautifully. I was kept warm, maybe too warm, when I wore it in temperatures below 30F. The material is much thicker then the pictures would suggest. The fit was spot-on. I ordered a L and I have a 42" chest. Would definitely recommend this to stay warm.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
GREAT SECOND LAYER
July 09, 2007
I FOUND THE ACR'TERYX APACHE AR THE PERFECT SECOND LAYER, SOFT AND FORGIVING. IT'S LIGHT AND JUST WARM FOR THOSE MILD COOL SPRING DAYS.
December 26, 2009
Typical Arc fit. Sleeve and torso length perfect for my 5'7" 155lb frame in size Medium. Nice, warm, midweight fleece material with cool elbow wear protection making it ideal as casual townwear as well as an outerlayer on warmer spring days on the slope. Can't be Altrec customer service and sale price either! :)
June 05, 2005
Shirt is close fitting; interior has a nicely brushed soft feeling
Great color, well made
January 05, 2010
This is a great fleece -- super soft and warm. Bought it for the boyfriend for Christmas. Only complaint: he's 6 ft tall and 175 lbs with a broad chest... he was right in between the medium and the large. The large was too bulky through the middle but the medium is nearly too short.
November 06, 2006
This shirt feels great on. Although very warm inside climates. Quality workmanship throughout.
Great Midlayer Fleece
January 09, 2012
I was looking for a 200 weight midlayer with the new thermal pro feece technology from Polartec -- I think this may be the only one on the market. The tweed fabric on the outside was a unique plus, and the laminated patches on the elbows help compenste for the high cost of the garment. I can wear it with my Patagonia simple guide jacket down to 30 degrees while walking the dog. When combined with a down sweater, I've taken this piece to just below 20 degrees and felt warm. If you are willing to spend the extra dollars, you won't be dissapointed. The only way I would improve upon its design would be to install an internal pocket, rather than the laminated pocket on the chest - which would make it more city-friendly.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
August 14, 2005
Highly Recommended for cold weather.
Very Well Made...
January 08, 2012
I'm very keen on details and this product is exceptional. The manufacturing is top notch and looks like it's built to last. I was drawn to Arc'Teryx because the majority of their clothing is base on 'sport fit'. I ordered the medium and it maybe a tad small, so I will try the large. I will try other Arc'Teryx items, like their jackets and pants. Arc'Teryx is higher on the pricing scale, but well worth it.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
great ski sweater
January 09, 2011
This is a wonderful mid weight top - I use it as a middle layer under a ski jacket - its not too bulky and fits well under the ski jacket. It is loose fitting and not too long. I am a women's XL. but find the Men's Large is a better fit. with the zipper top - it softens the look and makes it great for me ( a woman) or my husband who wants to borrow it. Also love the pocket - easily fits a room key, credit card and a few dollars.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
Great Mid Base Layer
December 18, 2011
I purchased this for a trip to Canada in Jan. This Mid layer is excellent in fit, not too baggy, not to tight. I purchased a large (5'11" 180 lbs) and it will have the right amount of room for base layers. I love having the ability to zip up the neck if I am getting the chill or zip down if I am getting to warm. Having the ability of adjusting your layers from zipped up to zipped down is a huge plus to keep the sweat from chilling the body. Yes Arcteryx is know for its quality and with that you tend to invest more so than other brands. I can tell you that any expedition I take will be based on Arcteryx gear. Oh and the front pocket is good for items like cell phones (mine is in its protective case) and it fits comfortably.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance
Fantastic fit - great looks!
March 20, 2010
This is my first Arc'teryx purchase having been a Pategonia and North Face guy for a long time. I love it! I am 5'-10", 185 lbs and the medium is perfect.
Superlative quality. Excellent slim fit, robust materials
April 05, 2010
I love everything from this company which I've purchased, because the quality of materials and workmanship and the functionality of their designs are top notch.
it is light
December 02, 2009
the zip is light and very soft. i feel it is very well. but it is thin, it is not so warm.
nicer then a normal fleece
August 10, 2005
As with most every Arc'teryx products the Apache AR Zip is excellent, I have two of them in different colors and really like their Tech look that is dressier then a fleece.
Fits well, looks great, keeps me warm
December 17, 2008
I like the way it fits and hangs. I get a lot of compliments on it. And it insulates really well without making me feel overheated.
Great fit & stylin' look
December 28, 2009
Love the fit & has same cut as my Gamma MX, so they make a dynamic duo. The Apache is pricey but very well constructed, comfortable and warm.
Excellent and more
March 26, 2007
I used it in cold weather and in extremely cold weather as a second layer. It is perfect. It is also versatile using it as a sweater, as a second layer, and casual. One of my very best buys.
Great piece of clothing!!
January 22, 2007
This was the second Apache AR sweater that I purchased, I loved them that much. The fit is definitely fitted, not loose. But it fits nice. They are very warm and the type of fleece should not pill. I am very pleased with this purchase. BTW the Statue is actually a very light teal green color, looks good. The other colors seem to look like they should.
A great top!
July 05, 2005
A great top at a great Altrec price! You should size up as this garment is fitted.
