Capilene Air Crew Top

The temperatures have dropped, but that doesn't stop you from getting after it. You're beginning your winter adventure by layering up, starting with the Patagonia Capilene Air Crew Top. The durable, airy wool blend pulls moisture off your skin keeping you dry and warm under the rest of your layers. Even if you're really working hard and producing a lot of sweat, you won't have to worry about applying multiple layers of deodorant as wool naturally repels odors. But peace of mind isn't the only comfort this baselayer provides. 

The seamless 3D Construction eliminates all chafe points through the entire top so you can move all day long in bliss and comfort. This construction also produces almost no wasted material. So in addition to being environmentally conscious, you don't have to worry about fabric catching on your other layers while you're out and about. The no catching aspect is a big deal with this garment. The fabric is stretchy, soft, and moves wherever you do. Additionally, the soft elastic knit cuffs keep the sleeves from bunching up when you throw on your next layer.

  • Baselayer to keep warm and dry on any winter adventures

  • Naturally odor-resistant, a defining attribute of wool
  • Seamless 3D construction eliminates chafing
  • Soft, stretch elastic in cuffs and hem for added comfort, security

Next-level wicking!!!

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

Reminds me a bit of Brynje stuff in that it's so incredibly wicking. But this is obviously more presentable in public. It's next-level when it comes to wicking and keeps me feeling much drier than I'm used to. I just wore it for six days straight in the High Sierra, and sweated it up every day. It shows zero signs of wear and strangely didn't stink at all. This stuff is a real game-changer for me. Leave it to Patagonia to discontinue it though.....We'll see.

I run in this down to below freezing during the day with no extra layers and feel pretty good and don't sweat too much running at about 40 degrees F or so. I ordered the men's sizes (I have a S, which is more my size, and M because I like the extra room). The women's sizes were way too form fitting for me. I would say size up regardless of gender.

I got this planning to run in it. Instead I wear this for work, lounging, and all forms of leisure activity. I have no doubt I COULD run in it. But I like this so much I just can't do it. My only quibble is that it runs a little long. I'd love more versions of this - a hoody would be great. But the absolute best material - feels like you are wearing nothing, yet is somehow both warm and airy. It's my favorite thing for casual days at work.

I bought four of these last year, and I’ve worn them ever cool/cold day since. They are surprisingly warm. I wear them hiking, walking the dog, and as a light sweater at work. Could be my best clothing purchase ever.

Great Baselayers!

I have worn these in many different conditions and absolutely love the baselayers. The not only keep me warm, but dry as well when i'm touring and start to sweat a little.

This shirt makes an incredible baselayer. It delivers on everything it promises...warm but breathes extremely well. I've worn it shoveling snow several times already and it keeps me warm when starting but never feels wet and heavy once I've been at it for a while. I'll be ordering another one.

I have tried out several types of thermals in the past, but the Patagonia Capilene Air's are AMAZING! I tend to be more warm blooded, so while thermals keep me warm, as I start to increase my activity, I often quickly overheat. Not with these! I am VERY glad I purchased them and am excited for our Peru treks coming up this July, now I feel truly ready!

Comfortably Outstanding Shirt

I have never been much of a merino wool guy but I am liking this blend shirt a lot- like couldn’t take it off for several days after I got it and as an aside my gear head has been great too! I just ordered two more shirts in different colors today.

YOU are great! Thanks for the review!

Hi there - has anyone tried running in this? I'm curious as to how hot it gets, versus how well it wicks with a bit of air going through it. Thanks kindly.

Hi Ben! The piece was developed to be used as a base layer. That said, given its merino/poly blend, and excellent moisture management and breathability ratings, I would guess this would be a great shirt to run on colder days!
