Enabling warm, dry next-to-skin wicking performance, the Arcteryx Rho LT Zip Neck for women uses lightweight synthetic fibers to move moisture rapidly, and a silver ion treatment to remove odor during an endurance endeavor. An ideal warmth-to-weight ratio base layer for backcountry adventurers, the clean detailed Rho is designed for year 'round use. No-lift underarm gussets, that let you raise your arms without your shirt going for a ride, allows for comfortable cinching of the collar zip. Soft and form fitting the Rho LT Zip Neck fleece easily goes solo on a sun soaked spring day, as a laminated sleeve pocket provides for convenient stashing of essentials.

  • Form fitting
  • One laminated sleeve pocket with laminated zip

Wonderful base layer
October 19, 2010

I bought one of this top in cornflower. I wore it today for a long hike which started off nice but ended up very chilly in the evening. I felt very comfortable and wicked the moisture very well. I stayed very comfortable and stylish on the trail. My friends gave me compliments on it too.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use

Stylish outdoor piece, appears well constructed, runs petite.
December 27, 2007

Great looking piece and definitely sticks to the Arcteryx commitment of quality. Purchased it for my girlfriend. She really enjoyed the amethyst color and the streamlined pocket feature on the left arm. Made for a base layer. A bit thin to insulate alone with just a jacket for activities such as winter sports. Unfortunately I have to send it back for the next size up. Seems to fit small. She is very slender and usually a medium in most pieces. Let's just say she could get it on, barely. Oh well, win some, lose some; the price you pay for deal shopping on line.


Very good looking
January 16, 2010

I like it very much, it's very comfortable ,I always order large in Arc'teryx gear, medium for other brands.


She loves it
January 04, 2010

I bought this shirt for my wife. She absolutely loves it. Whether hiking, walking the dogs or going to the store it works. It runs small so keep this in mind.


Arc'teryx Rho LTW Zip Top - Women's
January 20, 2010

Soft, itch-free merino wool makes the Arc'teryx Women's Rho LTW Zip Top warm and comfortable on chilly days. This all-natural top insulates in a wider range of temperatures than a synthetic shirt, and its lady-like cut flatters your feminine figure. Wear it alone on a fall backpacking trip or as a layer on powder dayseven when this long-sleeve top gets soaked, it retains its insulating ability. Best of all, its inherent odor-fighting properties keep the aprs-ski funk to a minimum. Using Arc'teryx's no-lift gusseted underarms, the Rho LTW allows a free range of movement with a close fit. A collar zip helps you ventilate, and the laminated sleeve pocket stores a key and a twenty, so you don't lose them when ditching layers. *Available for US shipment only.

Very soft!
January 11, 2010

It's now my favorite shirt - it's soft, comfortable and wicks well. Others recommended ordering a size larger than I usually order, and I am glad I did - fits perfectly.

a nice shirt~
November 16, 2010

this is my second Rho LT Zip Neck shirt, this shirt is warm and fitting me quite well. Though it' s much more costy than other brands but the quality speaks.

perfect running shirt
May 12, 2010

I bought a couple of these to wear as a base layer when I run. They are lightweight, wick well and keep me warm in cooler temps. I normally wear a small, but ordered medium and they fit well.


Nice baselayers
April 03, 2010

Arc'Teryx's rho lt zip shirt, so I like that. Too soft to the touch, the body fitting base layer that is superior to others. Some of the warmth well, and the sweat after exercise is a very fast drying. If you have a chance, a different color is more likely to buy.

Great lightweight layer
April 16, 2010

I use this for spring/summer hiking and climbing as well as an additional layer when ice climbing. I love it so far. Two downsides: 1. could be a bit thicker, but then I guess you could go up to the MX version for that and 2. the neck hole is small (and my head is average size). it's a bit of a pain to take off and put on. overall, I'd recommend the Rho. It's on par with Arcteryx comfort/quality I've come to expect.

Daughter loves Rho LT
June 12, 2012

My daughter loves the way it looks on her. When she runs in the morning she uses it as an outer layer and mid layer when she goes snowboarding. It's comfortable and dry and doesn't have a funky odor in the armpit area that she gets sometime wearing other clothing when she's active.

Pros: Build quality, Performance

Nice but very small and very light weight
December 30, 2009

I was really hoping this was heavier weight and am returning to get one that is. That said, exceptionally nice shirt. With that said I generally wear a small but this was "skin tight" so when I reorder I will order a Med. I generally wear a 4 or 6 so was suprised how small this was.

Great shirt for xc skiing!
January 01, 2010

I have been wearing this shirt for strenuous xc skiing and I am always amazed that no matter how much I sweat, the shirt is always dry when I come home. It is cozy and fits great (I always order Medium in Arc'teryx gear, Small for other brands). And it doesn't smell :)

Toasty shirt
March 25, 2008

I love this shirt, would buy it in every color. Use it as a base layer for any outdoor activity and it looks nice when the jacket comes off. Normally I wear a medium but wear the large in this one, it's a slender fit in the waist area and hugs the body.


Arc quality shines through!
January 29, 2010

Bought this top for my wife for running, etc. She loves it and has joined the Arc Fan Club! Great fit and look and works well as a lite weight (but warm) top.


January 23, 2010

I love this shirt. I would wear it everyday! I am an XS person, and I need this shirt in a S for a little movement. So, order one size up. Also, I got mine in wasabi and it's a much brighter green than the picture shows- more like a lime color in my opinion.

your service are great.
June 01, 2010

your service are great, I used Arcteryx zip neck for my cycling, it is warm and breathing. I really like it. I am considering to get a pant too.
