classic piece.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

ive had no issues at all with this model. fits great, works great, looks great, and is comfy as can be.

nothing but good things of the cap 2.

some may complain about price, but think of it as an investment.

im 6' - athletic build but not slim or skinny and a large works great

I like it? but it smells!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is a great baselayer. I should add it's the only true baselayer I've owned though. It works well at wicking and still keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. I don't wear it much in the summer where I live because it gets to 120 degrees and clothing is not required in that weather. I use it as a base layer when snowboarding and it rocks. I wear it camping to bed. I wear it the next morning at breakfast. Then I wear it climbing. If it gets warm I roll up the sleeves. Boom!

but man? this thing smells. or I smell? I don't normally smell though (at least nobody tells me that) so I blame this. It creates this weird funk? And it happens fast. I mean as soon as I start even remotely sweating it starts. There is still a slight funk smell to it even after washing it.
but if you don't care about smelling then who cares, right?!
It's super comfortable to wear all the time.

I wear a size small. I'm 5'9" 130 lbs. slender build. this is a nice slim fit. not boxy.

Moisture-wicking & Quick-drying

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is my go-to long sleeve hiking shirt! Super lightweight & versatile. Breaths so well while pulling any bit of moisture away from your skin. About as good as they get in my opinion!

Go to longsleve

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The cap3 is the perfect longsleeve base layer. great for skiing under an insulation layer, or perfect under a t-shirt to wear around town. The shirt wicks well, adds some insulation, and when it is not covered it really helps to cool you off. Great shirt.

thin, but warm

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

good base for temps down to about 30-ish F. great for aerobic activities, and also works well as your sole layer in warmer temps.

Awesome next-to-skin layer

Just picked this up after eyeballing it locally for a long while. I've had plenty of Cap 1 over the past 2 decades, so this was my first try with the Cap 2.

I used the Cap 2 as my next-to-skin layer for a camping trip with overnight lows in the low 30s. The cap 2 did an excellent job of keeping the heat in close to my body. At night, I wore this with a TNF stretch jacket over it and was mostly comfortable all night.

The fabric did pick up a bit of stink after 5 days of wear, and I feel like Cap 1 does not.

I have used the Cap 1 for several years and came here looking for that again. But it seems to be unavailable. As for stink... ANYTHING will stink after 5 days..Including the Cap 1

Sizing??? I am 5'7" and 145 lbs athletic...

Sizing??? I am 5'7" and 145 lbs athletic cut. Would the S be to small or should I shoot for the M? Using as a baselayer. My smartwool NTS in M is a little to loose for a base layer....HELP!!!

Responded on

I'm just a bit smaller than you (though I'd be described as "stick thin") and I wear a small. I bought a small, and it's not quite skin tight, but certainly cut to be "next to skin". For your size, I'd get a Medium.

Critical

What else can I say that hasn't been said. This is as good as it gets for layering for the price.

Air dry to keep the stank to a minimum. The drier kind of bakes it in.

Awesome Shirt - Will Be Buying More

I bought one of these for a trip I have coming up in the Smokies. Two words, extremely comfortable. I was highly impressed the moment I put it on. I'm thinking about getting more in different colors because I like the shirt I have so much.

Super thin, surprisingly warm.

When I first got them, I was very surprised as to how thin the material itself is. Despite it being so thin, it is amazingly warm. I've worn this in the teens-20's and been warm in just a soft shell over it (as long as I'm moving!) It dries super quick too, which is great!

Thin but effective layer

When I got this I was pretty skeptical. It seemed really thin and had a cheap poly feel to it. That being said I was really surprised at how well it performed. I wore it for 5 days straight on a climbing trip and really put it to the test. It kept me cool and dry under my R1 / Puffy.

It did retain odor more than a merino layer would.

Time will tell

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I just got this and so far I'm very pleased. At first I was a little let down because it was thinner that I expected but I was surprised at how warm it was once I wore it. It does fit a little loose for a base layer but because of that it is extremely comfortable.

The Smell...

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Once you start to appreciate performance gear like this baselayer, it is hard to go back to regular shirts. However, I decided to downgrade my review. The shirt smells really bad. For the price, you can get better baselayers. I usually love Patagonia, but decided to replace this one with a merino-wool Stoic shirt (for the same price) and could not be happier.

go to base layer

  • Gender: Male

Used primarily for backcountry touring. Very comfortably when hiking without my jacket in just this layer as well as using it as a main base layer. Ive used it from 30 down to the single digits and love it. in colder temps I'll have to put the puffy on also then heat up really quick.

Just bought a second

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This has been my go to base layer for the past 4 years. I've worn it for everything from traveling to cragging to winter mountaineering and have never been disappointed.

I generally wear this as a long sleeve over a t-shirt, but occasionally wear it as my primary base layer. Either way it performs great. Small and light enough that I never think twice about packing it, and it provides a surprising amount of warmth. Perfect for intense cardio activity on chilly days.

After 4-5 years of abuse, my first Capilene 1 was ready to retire (it had holes at the elbows and in the sleeves, mostly from rubbing against rock), and I just bought a new replacement.

Blue is darker than pictured

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I'm a big fan of the Cap 2's but was a little dissapointed that Blue is darker than it shows in the picture.

Just Ok!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I like Patagonia Capilene. still have a shirt from a few years ago, but with more holes. Thought it was time to replace it. My previous one fits nicely, the new one(same size) is wrinkly in the arms and over all much more loose. Disappointed in the fit.

How does this compare to Under Armour? I...

How does this compare to Under Armour? I really like Under Armour shirts and can someone give a fair comparison of these? I really like Under Armour compression cold gear but haven't tried their fitted cold gear. I realize this isn't made for really cold weather but I do better with comparisons to things I already know about. I do not own any Patagonia clothing although I have an R1 zip up waiting for me when I arrive back in the States. Thanks

I'd say they're pretty comparable. I've found the capilene to be a bit looser and more breathable than the underarmour, but both do the job as a base layer.

My Go-to Baselayer!

I own a few of these base layers and have used them for years! They are lightweight and look great! I wear them under my t-shirts in the winter to stay warm snowboarding or sitting at work. :)

Best Baselayer

I wear this shirt everyday, so comfortable. It's by far my favorite shirt, wicks moisture well and you can wear it in any possible situation. Definitely worth the price.
