stretchy, and ive also had an xl top that is not soft nor is it stretchy it is also charcoal black and stiff in

You have 4th element xerotherm base layer then there is 4th element Arctic layer then there is 4th element Sub xero these are listed in order of thiness to thickness

There are a couple of other layers but the 3 above are probably the most common ones used.

Im on my second set of Arctics, the first set I bought second hand and Im sure they were dark blue. My new set are black and are more stretchy than the first set and are longer in the body.

My set is a few years old, there's no stretch at all in them, never has been. If the new ones are stretchy then I'd say they were a different fabric or at least a different build up.

there either Xerotherms or Artics,Xerotherms are soft and stretchy and the artics are normally stiffer and thicker with white stiching,read the name on the back of the top.
