These are just as awesome as the normal crew version of Capilene 2. The zipper makes this perfect for slightly warmer days, which is excellent for dumping excess heat.
Super lightweight and breathable. However it's starting to fray a bit but I'm putting it through some rough work.
Have this base layer to my boyfriend for Christmas and he absolutely loves it! He wears it on several occasions (running, hunting, hiking). Says its very warm, snug feeling and hasn't given him any trouble. I bought a Medium and he is 5'10/ around 155 lbs. Patagonia wins again!

Great wicking properties. Comfortable against your skin. Quick wash and dry. Gives silk a run for the money. Well worth owning.
I love this thing. Since it's a half-zip, you get maximum versatility. I love dumping out heat with the half-zip, it's very comfortable. I wear this alone as a running top or as a baselayer when climbing or mountaineering. It's a great piece of clothing.
I usually prefer wool for its anti-ordor properties, but I prefer this. Since neither smells, I prefer this for its durability (wool can be fragile).
I'm 6'1, 165 lbs and I wear a M.
Great product. Get one!
This shirt goes with me everywhere. Ski touring, ice climbing, alpine trips to Alaska. It doesn't matter, this rig always has a place in my layers.
I am 5'11' with a 52" chest, 17" neck, 16" bicept, and weighing 210 lbs to give you of an idea for fitting. I am ahlethic built in the shoulders, chest, from lots of skiing, swimming, soccer, and biking. I knew the large should be ok.
My wife thought my old Patagonia is too thin and not working anymore after 2 yrs which was a size large.
I received this one and it was the same one, just newer style. This is a perfect product for me and I use it all the time. The odor control technology was the selling point for me. It wicks the sweat away and keeps me dry on colder runs.
I use this for skiing, running, cycling, and camping.
I will not leave home with out it.. The price is not back and is similar to REI when I bought it 2 yrs ago.
This baselayer is very comfortable and light. It's helped keep me warm down to low teen weather and does not make me overheat when I start moving. I was also impressed with how fast it dried when I got rained on. I would definitely recommend this top.
Soft next to skin and fast drying. Already had the Cap 3 and wanted something lighter. Great first layer when hiking, or just on a cold night hanging around. Also on a cold night in a sleeping bag. Would suggest again. I ended getting an XS for a tighter fit but not a compression shirt, but form fitting. Hope BackCountry and start carrying XS.
This is my preferred base layer for skiing. Comfortable, wicks moisture well, and the zip let's you cool off quickly when you are hiking up Palmyra peak or to the Gold Hill chutes. If you run cold (I run warm), you should definitely consider the Capilene 3 midweight as a base layer.
i bought a couple of capilene 2 zip-neck not too long ago and used them as a base layer when i recently went to taiwan, it was quite wet & chilly in the highlands, the temperature was around 10 degrees C, used a light fleece and a storm shell, worked out fine. the capilene 2 is really comfortable, (except for the zipper near the chin), will buy more when i see a good deal.
I like Patagonia products for their functionality and flair and this capilene zip neck top is all of that. The two tone contrast on the mango shirt is subtle and the shirt would pass for a semi-dressy in a pinch. Size Medium fits well and I consider myself between small and medium @ 38" chest, long torso and 32" arms, athletic build. I have since purchased 4 merino wool shirts by another fine maker, Stoic and in comparison to this polypropylene Capilene top, the merino wool is a hands down winner in the "no odor retention" category. Polypro, on my body is definitely a "one day" affair.....merino wool hangs in there for 3 days or more and I'm still acceptable to be around. Also, merino wool products wick moisture from the arm pit area, a nice feature whichever manufacturer you choose.
An amazing layering piece. The shirt is a great base layer. It wicks sweat, keeps you warm, and looks great. You can wear this around town. I have had and used it for 5 years now and I still looks great. I will be buying more of the patagonia capeline. I medium fit great at 5'10" and 150. A little tight at 175, not the shirts fault.
Great great product! Living in colorado i play ALOT outside but i also work at an Apple store so i gotta look professional once in awhile. This shirt has been perfect for both. Stays completely odor free and wicks sweat mountaineering yet stylish enough I can wear it to work afterwards. After three years of really hard use it still shows no signs of wear or tear whatsoever. Can't recommend enough!
Wearing it right now! and it is my fall and winter go to base layer. Looks classy too. Love it.
I really like the capilene 2 weight as its light and really breathable! It dries quickly and seems indestructible; the only thing I don't like is the odor after you sweat in it (but i guess that's the drawback of any synthetic). Overall the fit is pretty good, but I've found that I prefer my wool base layers more for camping and outdoor activities. I wear this around town a lot though as it looks good.
I cannot wear this shirt enough. I bought it for a Rainier attempt, but now I wear it all the time, the zip allows for easy venting and I wore it right over my skin for great wicking and quick dry. It has held up well after days and days of use and is a great layer to put on over a t-shirt on a rock climbing day. I was wavering between capilene or merion baselayer, but am super impressed with this one, and it costs a lot less than wool. Buy 2!
This is the zipper version of the Capilene 2 shirt. I guess the zipper is a nice funtion for venting but I found it bothered me a bit so I went back to the crew style. Patagonia makes some fantastic baselayers in the Capilene 1,2,3 and 4 versions. This is the lightweight version and is a comfortable shirt to wear (except the zipper rubbed my chest), looks good and does a great job of wicking moisture. Not a warm shirt on it's own but works great as a baselayer.
Patagonia considers this a slim fit but I think of it more as an athletic fit, fits snug but not tight. It is not compression fit like some other baselayers.
I got one of these a few years ago and absolutely LOVE it
I wear it all the time in all kinds of conditions (hot, cold, dry, wet, etc) and it continues to hold up really well
Very comfortable. Easy to layer over or under. Durable. Takes up almost no room in a pack
Great piece from Patagonia that needs to be in your bag.
