Created to handle a variety of high output, warm weather activities like trail running, trekking or rock climbing, the Motus Short Sleeve Crew is a versatile high speed performer. Constructed of Phasic™ SL, an advanced bi-component fabric that wicks moisture, dries quickly, and disperses odours, the Motus is anatomically patterned and has gusseted underarms for exceptional freedom of movement. The trim next to skin fit stretches with the body, and the longer hip length cut provides added coverage and layers well under a hipbelt or harness. Reflective blades at the sleeves increase visibility in low light.
A powerful Arc’teryx performance fabric, Phasic™ SL, is a key to the Motus’ function. Phasic™ SL’s bi-component structure combines hydrophobic yarns with multi-dimensional Phi yarns to elevate the level of moisture dispersion. This regulates body temperature during active phases, and dries faster during rest phases. The knit construction’s mechanical stretch eliminates the need for elastic yarns that can retain moisture, but still allows the Motus to provide a performance fit that moves with the body.
