The fit was great but they are see through. I like to take my ski pants off after the ski day and have a drink in the bar or drive home. Not if they are see through. This should be said in the description. I am returning them and ordering another pair Capilene 3 midweight pant. Very happy with the new pants.

I love these!

Been looking for a warmer baselayer for backpacking to replace my 10 year old patagonia capilene 2s. I wanted lightweight, warm, and cute. These are perfect. When I first tried them on, I thought no way would these keep me warm enough. They were very thin and see thru the waffling. I went backpacking this weekend and I wore them under my layers and I was not cold at all! I'm always the one complaining about freezing and I was so happy that I didn't have to shiver. I got the xs and they fit me perfect. 5'2" 117 lbs. The wide waist band is flattering. I wore the bottoms and the top to bed in my sleeping bag and was so comfortable. The material is breathable. Very happy with my purchase, especially since I got them on sale.

I'm a Patagonia fan, had the top and finally got these on sale, love them to death. I'm may have to get another pair. Awsome when you need warmth and light weight. I have smart wool, I have Xbex, I have silk, but these are the ones I reach for the most when I need a light base layer that works in icy cold temps. Love is blind....?

What size should I get? Im 5'2" 117lbs... normally wear a 25 or 26 in jeans. Can't decide between a xs or s. Should these be nice and tight to be warm? Looking for baselayers to wear at night while camping. Im always cold.

Sky, I think an XS would fit you well. Having this style nice and snug makes it warmer and easier to layer for sure.

See through

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I love my Cap4 top and was looking for a warmer base layer to use on resort days. First the "open grid knit" essentially means see through. It is a waffle style with a very thin fabric between the waffles, when stretched tight you can see right through to your underwear. I ordered the extra small (5'2" 115lbs). It was a struggle to get the waist over my thighs and butt, but once it made it over, it fit my waist perfectly. Just wish it had a little bit more stretch, but wouldn't pick a different size.

Looking for a description and/or picture...

Looking for a description and/or picture of the waistband. Surprised that neither are provided here! Very important factor in choosing a baselayer.

Hey Kara,

These are listed as a flat brushed elastic waistband.

I hope that helps

you've got to be kidding me

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

These are amazing. They are so thin and unbelievably warm. I wear them around the house in the winter they are so comfortable and soft I can't wait to get home and put them on.

it has been a year since i ordered these and I still love the heck out of them to be honest for how much I have worn them I am surprised they have held up so well they almost look brand new. they are very cute and comfortable. they are see thru and meant to be worn as a layer under something else. I have used them snowboarding, hiking, camping and around the house. I will be getting a second pair.
