my Go-To Shirts For Hiking & Backpacking
As the review title says, these are my Go-To Shirts For Hiking & Backpacking, especially since much of what I do is in the warmer climes of Southern California. Ever since Patagonia discontinued their "Patagonia Wool 2 T-Shirt Short-Sleeve - Men's", which I dearly loved, I have gone with these when I go Poly, and I dig that it's 54% recycled polyester. Even when I roll with a wool shirt on a backpacking trip (for obvious reasons), I still bring one of these along. Super-light, and I love the athletic cut. Patagonia makes good stuff. :-)
hey nice shirt
Fit and feel of this shirt are great. Oddly, it fits very differently than cap 1, the sleeves are much more snug. The only real bummer about the material is that I find it a bit warm for summer. It works better for fall and spring 60 degree days.
A great light weight shirt! I little scratchy before it is washed but after that your golden.
a little thicker than the cap 1 (duh) and i thought a lot less comfortable. i bought a bunch of these tech tees and this was not my favorite. fit pretty well as an xl, usually i take an xxl - 6'4 230 w a 47 chest. i didn't sweat in it at all, so i can't attest to it's wicking/drying ability. it wasn't comfortable enough for me to even wear it to the gym, i sent it back
Light, packable, and quick drying
I freakin sweat like a hawaiian pig in preparation for a luau and I can count on the cap 2 to keep me dry and comfortable.
fickle, but precise.
For the longest time i ran in cotton, then i transitioned into synthetics. For the longest time i've run in synthetics. Much to my dismay, i went through about 12 different types of shirts until i came across this gem. Patagonia's Capiline 2 fits close but not tight. I've never had it play "suction cup" with my skin, and it wicks like nobody's business. The only downside is the potential tearing that can occur when worn with a backpack for very long periods of time.
Regardless, this piece (and it's long sleeved, zip-necked brother) are my go to pieces for distance runs, tele skiing, mountaineering, and fishing.
It is not reccomended that you don this piece while rocking NASCAR shades, a male pony tale, ultra-lightweight cargo shorts, or any combination of the three. Especially if you step out of a Land Cruiser. Don't disrespect the Cap 2 tee, and don't forget to recycle it when it is over and done.
Very breathable, smelly
I've used these for pretty much every warm-weather pursuit for the last five years. I chose them over the Cap 1 and other poly shirts because their weave is more breathable (and dries almost immediately), is a little warmer in chilly mornings, and I just like the feel of the weave more than the slick feel you get in other poly shirts. I love the seam placement - they never bother me under a pack. But... the whole "they don't smell" thing is a load of bull. I can get mine stinking in under an hour. Maybe I have exceptionally strong BO (I like to think of it as natural pheromones - ladies hit me up!), but they are rank! I'm gradually switching over to wool so my partners will stop hating me.
Great shirt, lightweight and comfortable :-)
Which would work better for a "long...
Which would work better for a "long underwear" top for my husband under a business shirt: Capilene 1 short sleeve or Capilene 2 short sleeve?
Either will work really. Both are lightweight and wick, the Cap 2 is just slightly heavier. Get him one of each and see which one he likes better!
Almost like wearing a fishnet
Super lightweight and one snag on a branch or thorn and you have problems. Does not boast the normal patagonia quality/durability. This is the right shirt if you are 100% focused on lightweight/breath-ability. I have very little to no faith in this shirt holding up under the weight and abrasions of a fully loaded backpack
Team Dank Mango
Nice base layer shirt. Wore it while carrying a 30-pound pack on and no signs of ware on the shirt. The shirt, combined with my Atmos 65 pack kept me dry even though the sun was pounding us for most of the day. Shirt is super thin, can't wait to wear it in the summer time.
Good T shirt
Good t-shirt for outdoor activities in hot weather. Not so comfortable once you've worn and sweated in it and then come inside to relax.
This shirt is lightweight and dries quickly. Extremely comfortable on hikes, rides, at the gym, or just casual. The slimmer fit is great. I'm 5'9", 150, lean build and the small fits perfectly. The only downside is it will smell bad after you sweat in it.
Good all rounder
I think its a pretty good shirt that has been keeping me pretty comfortable on training hikes in 100 degree temps without any problems. Dries fast and has good breathability, but like all synthetics, it can get a bit smelly...
Great lightweight shirt
This is a great lightweight shirt that breathes well, and wicks sweat/moisture away from your skin, keeping you dry and comfortable. Not as good at odor retention as the wool series, which is the only reason it gets 4 instead of a 5. All in all, great for warm to medium temperature activities.
