What is 'fastpacking' and 'colourways'?
oh really, what IS it?
"the Phase line is designed to wick perspiration, dry super quickly and resist odour thanks to encapsulated anti-bacterial silver ions."
isnt this what a multitude of baselayers already do?
"What's more, they offer the added bonus of inter-woven UV SPF 50 protection and are of course completely anti-chafe."
again, already baselayers like the lowe alpine dryflo have already achieved this have they not?
I would have thought someone doing a PhD in physics at Oxford would have worked out how to use Google by now...
Arcteryx makes this one.
I've got one of the tops (they must have been released earlier here in Canada). I've used it for climbing, running and XC skiing. It fits nice, is comfortable, wicks well, looks decent enough, but the silver ion technology doesn't do much to stop the usual "Smelly Helly" issue. I'd probably choose Icebreaker/merino instead of this.
