The Patagonia Men's Capilene 4 Expedition Weight 1/4-Zip Hooded Top will keep you warm whether you're ascending a snow-capped mountain or stuck on a slow chairlift in dropping temperatures. The jersey face allows you to slide your other layers on easily, and the fabric stretches so it won't restrict your movements. Patagonia knows this shirt is hot, so they integrated a 1/4-lenght zip to help you dump a little excess heat when you want to.

  • Polartec Power Dry High Efficiency blends polyester and spandex to make Patagonia's warmest synthetic baselayer not only warm but stretchy and breathable too
  • Polartec Power Dry features partially recycled polyester
  • Polygiene permanent odor control keeps the shirt from retaining odor so you don't have a stinky shirt after a few days of use
  • Slim-fitting style lets you layer up easily for your alpine ascent or a freezing day at the resort
  • 1/4-length zip at chest for temperature regulation in case you get too hot
  • Open grid next to skin offers incredible warmth, breathability, and moisture management

Awesome pullover

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Lightweight, warm but still breathable, with great styling. I think it's everything you want in a hoodie. Price of $120 is not cheap but reasonable.

Outstanding garment

A number of years ago I swore off capilene because it always developed a strong odor when I sweat in it. That no longer seems to be the case. I've sweated a bunch in this shirt and after multiple uses it still smells new. So far I've worn in directly under a 2 1/2 layer rain garment where it wicks very well. I've worn in as an outer garment in 45 degree weather and find it extremely warm for its weight. I've worn it under a fleece under a rain garment and found it wicks extremely well. I've used it as a sleeping shirt in my sleeping bag. I've even worn it under a scuba diving dry suit where it was awesome. Similar to another reviewer I weigh 160 and stand 5' 10" and find the size medium to be a perfect fit. This has become my go to garment for rainy conditions in the mid 30's. I would recommend it to anyone for any cool to cold weather activity.

I can remember it clear as day. The year was 2009 and after a great day of bouldering in Leavenworth, WA I slunk back to the campsite to heal my aching skin and tell some lies. But alas I forgot my venerable R .5 pullover at the last problem of the day. Fast forward a few hours to me frantically searching my belongings for the piece which had been by my side for the last 5 years. Could I have forgotten it so easily, after all it meant to me? Alas as morning dawned I went back to that problem and indeed found the carcass of my R .5 on the ground. The little critters of the forest had chewed it to pieces under the glow of a full moon. I quickly called up Patagonia to buy another one but it had been discontinued and I was out of luck.

Now fast forward to the present day and the Cap 4 weight is almost exactly what the R. 5 used to be but, dare I say it, maybe even better. This comes with a hood (like my favorite piece of all time, the R1 hoody), contrasting zippers, and low key wrist keepers instead of the big thumb holes. It is so cozy and fits quite well. I went with the M and at 5'10 165lb it fits well with a light merino tee or under my Ultralight Down sweater. I hope to get years of service out of this just as I did from the R.5 and hopefully fate and gods see to it that I do.

To wrap up, if you loved the discontinued R.5, then this is the piece for you. If you never got to try the R.5 then you need to get your head on straight and just buy this promptly. Get something that matches all of your other clothes since you will probably be wearing it 24/7, black tie events be damned!
