The Patagonia Men's Capilene 3 Midweight Zip-Neck Top is Patagonia's most versatile baselayer for the athlete who wants to wear the same thing while he climbs, runs, backpacks, snowboards, and skis throughout the year. This is Patagonia's fastest wicking performance baselayer that can stretch, breathe, and dry for extremely difficult climbing and trail running situations. When winter comes, the smooth jersey face glides smoothly under layers for incredible warmth on cold ski days.

  • Polartec Power Dry fabric stretches and dries quickly, and it makes this top Patagonia's fastest wicking baselayer for sweaty athletes
  • Polygiene permanent odor control makes sure you don't have a nasty climber's smell when you take this from the climbing gym to go skiing without a wash in between
  • Slim fit lets you layer over this baselayer for snowy days on the resort, or just wear this by itself while you're trail running in the late fall
  • 1/4-length zip front allows you to regulate your own body temperature if you get too hot
  • Forward side seams, raglan sleeves, and a shoulder panel prevent chafing when you're wearing a pack

    Love this Layer

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

    I've used this base layer a few times now that the weather is getting a bit cooler and it's been amazing. I feel dry even when I'm sweating, and it has kept me nice and warm as the weather has gotten a bit colder. One of the best features is the long zipper. It gives you plenty of room to cool down when you start to heat up from working hard up a trail, and again keeps you nice and warm once you take a rest and sit down to enjoy the view and some trail mix.

    Patagonia, second to none

    Get it while it's on sales bros. Got mine on Outlet pricing, and was stoked. Free two day shipping from Backcountry, so it was here and in my pack in no time. On the last couple of adventures I've worn it as base layer, and as part of my mid layers. Didn't smell at all after multiple days hiking in it, I aired it out at night, and when I woke up in the morning it smelled fresh, doesn't hold odor. No hot spots or seams rubbing, very comfy, didn't notice any problems with having the pack over it. The Polartec regulated temps fairly well, and the 1/4-length zip made it easy to vent some heat, if it started getting toasty. Patagonia stands by their product, can't really go wrong. I'm gonna say it runs small, because I am a thin guy and it fits me perfect, and it's a large. Like the description says "Slim Fit" I expect to wear this frequently in the coming months.

    Go Capilene!

    I needed a warmer baselayer for fall and winter activities, so I picked this piece up on sale for $39.00. I'm a big fan of Patagonia, and this layer is no exception. It fits nicely, but wasn't quite as tight as I expected it to be (ordered size medium). It has a bit of room in the waste and in the arms, but it still is slim fitting and goes well underneath layers.

    I love that the zipper on it goes so deep, for those moments where I'm hot and/or feel like being indecent in public. I also really appreciate the thumb loops (although they seem fragile and I hope they don't rip out--so far no problems). The odor treatment on it seems to work very well too. I wore the shirt consecutively for a few days and didn't notice any bad odor, although the shirt itself does have kind of a weird smell that may stem from the odor treatment itself. Overall I'm really happy with this product and can't wait to get outside and use it some more!

    Perfect baselayer for any weather

    I recently wore this baselayer on a 24hr climb of Mt. Humphreys in the Eastern Sierra, and it was my MVP piece of gear. I can typically overheat very quickly, but Patognia's Polartec kept my temperature well-regulated; plus the zipper in front was perfect for venting heat, or staying warm. The East Ridge route was in the sun for the majority, but with a fresh snow storm from the week before, there were plenty of cooler spots and fresh snow in the shaded areas on the southern face we had to pass through; the Capilene kept me both warm and cool for each occasion. Plus, after a full day's use on the mountain, it did not stink. I slept in it the night before as well in my tent too.



    In addition, the shoulder pads did as advertised helping my 30lb pack not feel like a massive burden after 18 hrs of class 4 climbing.



    A++ and highly recommend. I am headed to Mt. Shasta in January for a winter ascent, and I will certainly be taking this as my go-to top layer.

    Perfect baselayer for any weather

    Great base layer

    I love the Cap 3! Just finished a week long trip to Glacier National Park, and the sweet layer got plenty of use! Some mornings I wore it by itself just to hold off the chill which it did incredibly well. I wore it while trying to summit Chief Mountain, in 50-60mph winds under a rain jacket and it did a great job of whicking the sweat, and keeping me warm.

    It's light weight, and packs very well, I plan on buying the bottoms as well.

    buy it; can't beat it

    i bought the crew and zip-neck styles of these layers. used both over 4 days of skiiing to where it was in the 20's with wind gusts up to 50mph. i wore these as my only layer (albeit with a TNF Plasma jacket), and was never uncomfortable. In fact, my forearms were a bit hot from time to time. i've also used them for jogs in 50 degree weather. anything lower i would wear a level 4, if not layer over. these shirts perform very well, and not sure you can beat the value the money; anythihng equivalent costs much more, but not sure you can really top the performance by much.

    I am 6'2" 195lbs athletic build... and size LARGE fits great.

    Terrific Product.

    I used it as a base layer while photographing Snowy Owls in Canada in February 2015, down to 136F wind chill. It did the job perfectly. Arms and waist are plenty long, and I appreciate to thumb loops.

    Amazing Mid Layer

    I run pretty hot. Most days skiing, I wear this, a light base layer t-shirt underneath, and my shell. That is a perfect combo for me. It fits really well, is super comfy, and the thumb holes really help

    Not your Grandpas underwear...

    • Fit:True to size

    I have been using some under armour for the past few years and I have to say.. They don't even compare to Patagonia's Capilene. I was very comfortable in these though I only wore them the night before and during our summit climb of Rainier, then throughout the next few days as we were doing crevasse rescue training. I was very pleased with their ability to keep the stinky stuff I was producing to a tolerable level and not getting overly ripe.





    My main complaint with wearing long underwear is how it usually makes my skin feel. kinda like all the hair on my body was getting pulled on and it just is a weird and uncomfortable feeling even after taking them off. Not the case with the Capilene at all. Very comfortable and they did keep my back sweat to a minimum when taking off my pack and getting a cold gust along my backside.



    Newer Design

    • Fit:True to size

    I have been using Cap3 for about 4 seasons and loved the trim fit and other great wicking/regulating features. I got a green this time, looks great, but the cut has changed to a bit looser in the arms, and are a bit shorter as well. Same great material I have come comfy with. I'm 6'2", 43 chest, 35 waist and 200 lbs. if that helps. 4Stars as I like the fit of my older one, not that this is awful, it isn't, just different.

    This thing is awesome!!

    This is the most versatile layer I have in my collection. If it's really cold, this acts as a great base layer with additional layers over it. When it's a bit warmer, I'll wear just this under my shell. In fall and spring, this is the only layer that I'll use. I've even used this on winter ski tours as my only layer on the uphill.



    It does a great job managing body temperature. It wicks moisture off the body very well and dries very quickly. I have a few of these, and as layering goes, it's affordable (unusual for Patagonia). The only downside that I've experienced is that the material started to pill a bit after a couple washes.
