    Details

    The mountains always provide good times.

    Early summer mountain pursuits can run the gamut between trail running and hiking to skiing the last remains of snow that still cling to the tops of peaks. With activities like this in mind, Patagonia designed its Men's Capilene Lightweight Crew Top. This lightweight baselayer can be worn on its own during cool weather runs and hikes, or layered under a midlayer when you strap the skis on to get a few June turns. Made with an eco-friendly polyester, it wicks moisture, so you stay dry when you work up a sweat. A 35 UPF rating puts the stop on harmful UV-rays, while a odor control treatment prevents any sour smells from taking hold after a couple of days of fun hogging.

    Solid Gear-Works for Women, too

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

    As a wildlife biologist who works outside year round, solid gear is a life saver. Also, as a fuller figured woman biologist, it can be hard to find women's gear that fits comfortably and appropriately, that also isn't a billion dollars. This shirt was on sale as a men's item but I figured I'd give it a shot. This baselayer has been keeping me warm and dry, even while driving a boat 30mph in the predawn hours on NY lakes. Warm, comfortable and durable, I'm thrilled to find a piece of gear that fits and is actually comfortable. And it actually stays in place and doesn't ride up when you move, rare qualities in a baselayer. I've recommended it to all my colleagues, male and female.

    Lightweight Performance and reliability

      Love the lightweight caps from Patagonia. This shirt is made for active performance in a variety of situations. Stays cool and blocks out the sun. Can't ask for much more in a lighter base layer. Highly recommended!! Backcountry got it to me super fast. #goatworthy

      Excellent Sun Shirt

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Size Bought: Large

      You never get to work in the shade when you’re installing solar panels. When you spend 6-10 hours a day in the scorching summer sun you need a shirt that’s cool but also offers excellent protection from the sun and this shirt nailed it. The fabric is extremely thin yet still blocks out the sun enough that I have had no issues with sun exposure wearing it day after day. I’m usually between a medium and a large and choose to go with the large since I’m not looking for a tight baselayer like fit. This shirt is comfy, looks good, and offers great protection from the sun. It’ll stand up to a little abuse but as you would expect from something so light and airy it’s far from indestructible.

      I keep the top and bottom to this capilene set in my sleeping bag at all times. light, breathable, comfortable and not too warm. I sleep in these all year round

      Super light!

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      If you need an incredibly light base layer that you can use for just about anything, this is the one. I liked the minimalist thumb loops. I ended up returning it because I wanted something thicker, but if you're in the market for a lightweight, this is solid.

      thin, lightweight performance

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

      They lightweight capilene top is great. However beware it is pretty thin, awesome for spring/summer/fall adventures where you need a light layer to protect from the sun or great as a next to skin layer in the winter. The fit on this has been relaxed from previous years so it is more of a casual cut instead of skin tight. Minimal thumb loops are awesome and help keep the sleeves in the place when doing aerobic activities. Shirt is super comfortable, and looks sharp in the Forge Grey color. I would highly recommend.

      The Capilene material has been updated for this season and wicks moisture better than before and doesn't have the stink factor of previous versions.

      Favorite Base for High Aerobic Activity

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

      In my opinion, this is the best base layer for high aerobic activities(touring, climbing, ect..). The material is extremely comfortable, wicks well, and dries much faster than merino. I absolutely love the fit - not crazy tight like some base layers out there but not to loose either. Multi-color options rock as well. Pair it under an R1 and you are set to tackle whatever mountain pursuit your heart desires.

      Slick wicking!

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

      I love an under layer that performs. This shirt will keep you feeling cool while you sweat and Patagonia is the best. Doesn't get stinky like a lot of other tech under layers, feels super light and has a great cut. I don't love the thumb loops, but that is something easily fixed with a scissors. Buy this, you won't regret it.

      Over Achiever

        Picked up a pair of these after a 5 day trip in the Guadelupe's that started in sub freezing temps and high winds and ended in the mid 50's. The first thing on my was 'different base layer'. The lightweight Capelene fits the bill. Fit is perfect. Under a mid or top layer I forget it's there. Wicks great and is very warm.

        You get what you pay for.

        It's really comfortable and I like that Patagonia is making multi colored base layers that still function great, wick well and keep you warm. You get what you pay for with material quality and cut.

        • Size Bought: Medium

        Wore the white version for two weeks straight on the JMT this summer. It was mostly brown by the end.

        Pros:
        -Super soft and comfy
        -Did not get smelly
        -Light and breathable (handled high temps well)
        -UV protection

        Cons:
        -None

        I am a 42 inch chest. I wear a Medium in the Patagonia regular fit jackets. Should I go with a large or medium with the Capilene?

        You could go either size with this. The medium will be more form fitting and a great thin layer. The large is going to be loose and might be a choice if you are going to wear this as a stand alone layer. The lightweight fabric is pretty thin but they have relaxed the fit a little from years past so it isn't so skin tight when wearing as a stand alone layer.
