Comfy tech tee
Perfect tech tee
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
Dries quickly, breathes great, very light, can wear several days in a row in the backcountry without starting to smell to badly.
I'm 6'1", 180lbs and the large is a bit baggy for my liking.
Hard to beat
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Wore my Capilene shirts for 2 weeks straight on a recent hiking trip in Sweden. Light-weight, comfortable, and extremely durable. They kept me dry and warm under a wide variety of layers.
Is Capilene as odor-resistant as wool? No. But I solved this problem on my recent trip by carrying 2 shirts and alternating washing and wearing every few days.
What is the pack weight for an xl...
What is the pack weight for an xl please?
Typical Patagonia Quality
This is my new favorite shirt for hiking / running / backpacking. It's lightweight, breaths well, and the fit is awesome. You can really feel the Patagonia quality and durability. You won't go wrong with this product.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Got two of these and love them. Super comfy and great fit. Used it for yoga weights and riding he mountain bag and can't wait to go hiking in it
My new favorite athletic shirt
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I snagged two of these on SAC and I loved them so much that I came back to Backcountry and paid for another at full price. The material is amazing and I've used them all. Poly/Cotton blends, wool, whatever. I sweat a lot so I'm proud to say that this shirt can handle it. It wicks moisture better and dries faster than my other athletic shirts. I use it for hiking, climbing, gym time, or around town. It looks great too! I love the slim fit. I'm 6', 195 lbs, and wear the Large. This shirt is a winner and worth every penny.
Pats Cap 2 shirt
Comfortable and breathes very nicely, I wear these for any form of physical activity. Size L fits my 6' 2" 205 lb frame with ease and plenty of length at the waist. A great shirt.
Preferred shirt for me!
I picked up 2 of these on sale and they are wonderful. I have been doing heavy cardio lately so sweating a lot and have had no odor issues with the shirt. I've also worn the shirt around town and it feels and looks great (says the wife).
Definitely recommend and will be picking up more when the goat puts them on sale again.
Bought 2 of these for my running, mountain biking, hiking excursions. I really love the fit. The shirt is not tight, but closely fitted around the chest and waist so it moves around the body easily, but is not in the least baggy. Keeps me cool and looks great. Definitely worth the sale price I paid!!!
Any sun protection rating on this shirt?
Any sun protection rating on this shirt?
Very minimal. You are looking at maybe UPF 15 at most.
Cap 2 has no UPF rating...it is an open-weave fabric.
Patagonia Top of the line
A great product from patagonia with excellent material quality. Great product for Running, Biking or working out in the gym.
This product subject to pilling and looks ratty in a short time. It is effective as an insulator.
Great shirt, very lightweight. With a long-sleeved tech shirt underneath you can't go wrong (if you need two light layers). Love this shirt!
I have been a big believer in patagonia until I ordered this shirt. I had been so impressed with them that I ordered two for me and my son. This shirt does not hold up. After a couple of hikes I already have five holes in it from where the material frayed and broke. These shirts do not meet the previous standards I have had for patagonia. All of my previous patagonia shirts have been great. I have icebreaker base layers that have lasted a few years of wearing on tough hikes with no holes, no fraying, no wear marks. BUT couple hikes with this one and it looks like rats have been gnawing on it in spots.
Great fit , really confortable shirt.
Best T I Own.
Have 3 of them. Wear - Wash - Repeat. Best T-Shirts that I own.
Capilene shirts are just fantastic for base layer moisture wicking T's. They fit great and the seams don't chafe after a long day.
Awesome shirt on a long trip
This shirt can be worn day after day without getting too smelly. Wicks away moisture and odor. Seriously a great shirt.
The blue one can be worn on its own, the white is a little transparent.
The material is very tough.
My goto shirt for hiking and mountain biking. Absolutely!
Write your question here... I just bought...
Write your question here... I just bought a cap 2 shirt and washed it on cold on delicate setting and dried it on tumble dry low with medium heat. Are those the correct wash settings? After the first washing and drying i noticed pilling and im wondering if thats normal. From everything i heard, i didnt expect something like this happen for a long time. Also, could these shirt hold up to washing about once a week if i wore it every week? Thanks
They should be right, That's how I usually wash my synthetics. You can always check with Patagonia though for their recommended wash settings too.
That's not right. I've been wearing Capilene shirts for years, and I've never had any pilling at all. For sure, call Patagonia. As far as washing goes- obviously, lots of wash cycles will take their toll, but it shouldn't be any problem. Sometimes just a quick hand rinse is enough to freshen things up.
