    Capilene Midweight Zip-Neck Top

    The Patagonia Capilene Midweight Zip-Neck Top is a versatile baselayer that will keep you warm and comfortable from opening weekend to closing day. The smooth Polartec Power Grid fabric wicks sweat and dries quickly to ensure that accumulating moisture won't give you the chills. The fabric's grid backing traps heat to maximize warmth without adding bulk, and stays breathable to keep you from overheating on leg-burning runs or warm spring days. The 1/4-length zipper lets you quickly dump excess heat when you're working your way up a steep skintrack, while the Polygiene treatment keeps odor at bay so you don't offend your skiing partners on the drive home.

    • Versatile baselayer for skiing, climbing, and backcountry adventures
    • Polartec Powergrid fleece is comfortably warm for active pursuits
    • Polygiene anti-odor treatment keeps fabric fresh for seasons of use
    • Chest zip vents well when you build heat on steep tree runs
    • Underarm gusset increases range of movement on dawn patrol ascents
    • Flatlock seams eliminate chafing to help avoid day-ending discomfort
    • Elastic thumbloops offer added comfort and easy layering
    • Item #PAT020P

    Bought as a gift and he said...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Warm but not too warm, fits well and moves moisture really well. All in, exactly what you would want for a technical base layer.

    Great Baselayer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    This is a terrific and less expensive option for a baselayer than merino. The fit worked well for me in a size small and the texture on the inside adds to the warmth. A great option!

    Nice Base

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    This top is a great underlayer for many activities. For a mid weighht it is super light and versatile due to the waffle pattern. That makes it quick drying, packable and just warm enough. Super breathable. Thumb loops are minimalist and make layering easy. The cut is short in the torso.

    Husbands new favorite piece

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xl
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    My husband wears this everyday now that he has it. It is a base layer, but it is pretty good looking as a black pullover, and it is super warm.

    Cold dads favorite piece

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I got this as a gift for my dad who lives in Bend OR and is currently living through the craziest snow winter ever. He wears this thing all the time, on walks and hikes or under a sweater to work and it always keeps him warm! He especially likes how lightweight and breathable the shirt is which makes layering a breeze. I got him an XL and it fits perfectly. He is 6'2" about 210lbs.

    Good fit, added warmth, hooked sleeve

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Mediun
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I wore this as a mid layer while boarding and it helped keep me warm in 20°F weather. I'm 5'10" 150lb. The Med fit great. I mostly like the thumb hooks inside the sleeve that keep the sleeves fully covering your arms. This makes layering up a breeze and keeps the sleeves where you want while sliding your arms through additional sleeve layers.
    I plan on wearing this as a plain'ol shirt because it looks great.
    I recommend this product.

    Warm and Comfy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    This is an awesome thermal. Its really lightweight, the material is comfy and feels good on your skin. Can get a little bit smelly so you have to wash it regularly but the material is durable so its no problem.

    High Quality

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

    This has been a super nice piece to have for anything from running to ski touring. It is on the lighter side, but that doesn't make it any less warm. Breathes pretty well, so you won't get sweaty, also. It eve has those helpful thumbhole cuffs so they can help keep your hands warm, and make it easier to layer, without your sleeves bunching up. Worth the money and definitely a go-to piece of mine.

    I wouldn't call it Midweight

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Not really warm enough for a midweight. I have midweight from other companies to compare. This is more a lightweight. I'll keep it for running. The sleeves are too short to use the thumbloops, I'd like another 5" but most people would probably want 3" more. Don't love it for winter.

    Pretty good

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    It's pretty good. I got it in Small but should've gotten it in the Medium size though.

    First Impressions

    Just delivered in the mail today, tried it on and feels great. It's a little thinner then my other capilene baselayer (probably 6 years old) but it feels soft and lightweight. The inside has a waffle pattern to it to wick away moisture. The fit is perfect! It's not to form fitting but loose enough to wear a thin base layer underneath, plan on wearing my CW-X performance layer underneath for ski trip later this month. I did noticed the stitching on the arms is somewhat noticeable when not wearing anything underneath, but not enough to warrant anything less then 5 stars. Ordered the Lemongrass color and it has a great look to it, not too bright either! The length of the sleeves is perfect for me, down to the base of my wrists. The thumb loopholes are a nice feature to keep the sleeves down in cold weather. Overall very happy with my purchase! Rock on Patagonia!!

    I have been wearing Capilene 3 pieces forever. This is my first new piece. The Midweight is the new 3, but it is all new.. I like the grid inside.. Can't say if it is warmer, but more comfortable then ever.

    damn good

    This has been my go to piece for splitboarding and ice climbing this season. I hated Capilene for years because it smelled horrible after about 30minutes of wearing it. However for this season patagonia updated the entire line and capilene material, and it is fantastic.

    I just came out of a four day hut trip in British Columbia where it was around freezing and snowing everyday, everything was soaked by the end of the day. Even after four hard days of sweating my ass off breaking trail, dropping pillows, and chopping firewood this shirt was fantastic. It dried super quick, kept me warm, and the smell was tolerable after days of use. If you are thinking about giving capilene another try, or looking to get your first piece; do it. I have the peppergrass color and it looks pretty good with my ginger beard. The color is insanely bright. SAR won't have any issues finding you if shit hits the fan.

    The thumb loops rule, super minimal and help keep the shirt tucked into gloves and under other layers.

    the mid-weight features a great waffle print fabric that is the perfect weight for most mild winter conditions. If it is super cold go with the thermal weight. fit is more relaxed than previous years and is reasonable to wear into the store to pick up a few beers and cans of dinty moore beef stew after a long day of touring.

    Perfect Layer

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

    I love this layer. I wear this over a tech-t 90% of the time for skiing. Fits great, soft feel to it, and very comfortable. Runs true to size, and hasn't shrunk or anything after washing.

    Versatile, comfortable.

    I have several of these and absolutely love them. The first one I bought is several years old and looks just as good as the one my wife just bought me. Great base-layer but yet looks good enough to wear to work. I like wearing the crew neck version underneath for further layering. I'm 5'9", weigh 155 and a small fits great. A little form fitting to accomplish the goal of being a base layer but not so tight that it looks like I'm seeking attention. Haha!

    Good layer

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

    A good piece to use as layering or wear on its own. Will function everywhere from the slopes to the woods to the bar. Very comfortable if you layer properly. 5f10in 165lbs and medium is perfect

    Great mid-weight layer

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    Just received this with my new Patagonia coat. Love the feel. Sizing might be a little tight for some people but right for me. 5'10, 164 lbs, 40 inch chest and 30 inch waist. The Medium fit me perfect. I would buy this top again.
