If you’re planning a winter expedition to the Carpathian Mountains or if you happen to be one of those perpetually-cold ladies any time it snows, stay warm and cozy with the Patagonia Women's Capilene 4 Expedition Weight ¼-Zip Hooded Top. You get top-of-the-line fabric tech in Polartec Power Dry High Efficiency fabric. It's moisture-wicking and quick-drying to keep you comfortable in cold conditions. Patagonia has given this, its warmest baselayer, an open grid for superior warmth and breathability, while the spandex adds stretch and ease of movement. Whether you're tackling high mountain elements or a cold snap in the city, utilize the high collar and self-fabric hood with anatomical shaping for coverage and warmth, and if you get too hot, simply zip down the long center front zipper to vent body heat. Now that you're nice and toasty, check out the added features in the zippered left chest pocket for secure storage and the thumb loops for superior hand coverage. This heavy-duty baselayer has it all, so if it doesn’t keep you warm, it might be time to think about an expedition to Key West.

Favorite Top

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the best piece of clothing I own. It's a great layering piece in the winter and works well as a warm layer to carry in the summer. It's even nice enough looking to wear to a restaurant after a hike or climb. It's also warm even when wet. I like to carry it in my dry bag when I go on a river as a warm layer in case I get cold. Can't go wrong with this.

The fit is slim. If you are at all between sizes, size up. I got away with my normal size, but it is a little snug.

Love this top!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This top is my go-to for riding. It fares well on those really cold and wet days - keeps me dry and warm, even with just my three-layer shell. Where it really surprises me though are on those warm days when you would expect it to be too much! It breathes well, doesn't get too stinky and is super comfortable to boot. To top it off, I love the fit! Patagonia did a great job with contouring the top to actually hug a lady frame.

Love this top!

How is the fit? Is it true to size?

It's designed to be a slim fit, so some people will be ok sizing up. For a slim fit though I feel like it runs pretty true to size.
