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

buy it; can't beat it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 195 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

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.

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

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

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

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • 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.
