    Lightweight performance.

    While some may contest that granola with chocolate is a hiker's best friend, the Patagonia Men's Capilene Lightweight Zip-Neck Top is arguably the most trustworthy and dependable, trail-side pal. This lightweight baselayer boasts a subtle grid pattern that floats atop the skin, which in turn wicks away moisture, dries quickly, and makes layering easy. In addition to its performance qualities, the fabric features a UPF 35 rating and Polygiene treatment that helps keep gnarly odors at bay. The generous, center zipper allows for quick and on-the-go temperature regulation, while the underarm gussets provide unobstructed mobility. Two thumbholes, one on each sleeve, keep the layer secure, and flatlock seams discourage any chafing—so you can carry on with your adventures in comfort and stride.

    • Patagonia's lightest baselayer for touring, climbing, or running
    • Moisture-wicking and quick-drying fabric
    • Quarter-zip allows for easy body temperature regulation
    • Polygiene treatment discourages build up of trail-induced stink
    • Low-profile elastic thumbholes keeps layer secure
    • Fair Trade sewing
    • Item #PAT01IN

    Can't be beat

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    When I decided I was going to ride across the country on my bicycle I began with a long in depth search for the perfect top. I know this is touted as a baselayer, but it checked all the boxes I was looking for. Lightweight, breathable, durable, and odor control. The half zip and the thumb loops are nice bonuses. I have now ridden my bike, self supported, across the United States twice. Both times this was my shirt. I have worn it through the deserts in Utah and Nevada where the temperatures reach 106 degrees. I have also worn it through the rocky mountains in Colorado while I hiked my bike up the side of those mountains through snow. This shirt takes it all. Yeah, it gets smelly after I haven't showered for a few weeks, but I'm not going to fault the shirt for that. The odor control is really fantastic, but it can only do so much. During those trips I would often stop at streams and rinse the shirt as best I could. The material dries incredibly fast. It's wicking properties are unlike any other I've experienced with a baselayer. Anyways, I'm Patagonia for life now. Next June I will head out on one last bike packing trip across the United States, and this will again be my shirt. My warm layer is actually their thermal baselayer worn over this lightweight baselayer. If I throw on a rain jacket over the tops of those two layers I can ride though some pretty cold weather. Much love to Patagonia, their gear, their business philosophy, and their customer service. The pictures is of me at Battle Rock, Port Orford Oregon. It was the inaugural year of The American Trail Race, a 5,100 mile mountain bike route across the US. I was on my bike for 36 days. I also wore Patagonia board shorts for the whole trip too.

    Solid backcountry layering piece

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Bought this layer for my boyfriend for the upcoming season. Here's his take: Always been a big fan of the Capilene. Doesn’t stink and feels good next to skin. The zip enables a bit more thermal regulation over a crew neck. I am 6’2” and 165lbs and a Large fits me well. Not too baggy but plenty long so that it won’t come untucked. Think this will be a great layer for backcountry skiing.

    I have one of these in every color

    These shirts are the standard for a good base layer. Nice zipper, great cut, and the material cant be beat. I still have some of my Capilene from 7 years ago, and its still preforming great! Highly recommend these bomber baselayers.

    Love it!

    This particular layer was a gift for my brother, he wears it all the time and I know it's not his only Patagonia capilene layer. I also have a few and love them!

    Great base layer

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

    I bought it to use when skinning and have found myself using it through out the season anytime i was on my board.
