Arc'teryx Rho AR Balaclava
Freezing winter ascents, high-altitude bivvys, and unpredictable mountain environments: these are what the Arc'teryx Rho AR Balaclava was made for. Featuring an ergonomic fit and Polartec® Power Stretch (90% polyester, 10% elastane) construction with durable stretch, breathability, and a moisture-wicking, fast-drying design, the Rho AR Balaclava allows for full freedom of movement and has a high level of next-to-skin comfort for easy wear on all alpine missions. A face opening fits over the nose during cold weather endeavours, and tretchy fabric construction allows for easy adjustment to the neck gaiter or simply to tuck it under the chin. Added length in the front layers easily and sits flat under a collar.

Polartec® Power Stretch®
Fabrics with stretch tend to lose their elasticity after repeated stretching and contracting, leaving clothes baggy and loose in places where they once fit snugly. Polartec® Power Stretch® is engineered with a tensile resilience that ensures its reinforced elastic fibres consistently rebound after every stretch, guaranteeing your clothes always fit like the first time you put them on. Moisture-wicking, highly breathable, and this fabric also features silver salt chloride to help combat bad odours developing on the fabric. Always made from a minimum of 50% recycled materials.
