    Total comfort from the chairlift to the ice wall.

    The Patagonia Men's Capilene Midweight Bottoms are your new go-to pair of long johns for any and everything winter. The Polartec Power Grid fabric has a smooth face for easy layering, and its brushed grid pattern delivers superior warmth and breathability while wicking moisture away from your body throughout all of your cold-weather endeavors. The gusseted crotch allows unimpeded mobility for those deep knee dips on your teles, and the flatlock seams reduce chafing throughout the aggressive back and forth movements found in the mogul fields. An antimicrobial Polygiene treatment keeps foul odors under control, day after day on the hill.

    Good hiking Baselayer

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

    I used this one in a hike trip for 3 days with temp in low 30s, not too cold, but was confortable enough to just to put some light weightwater proof pants on top of it and hike the entire day. Also,the antimicrobial treatment works!

    Good Baselayer

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

    It get 4 stars instead of 5 because the synthetic material picks up odor quicker than a natural fiber blend layer (ie merino) but the fit is good and they keep you warm for colder days on the slopes.

    Quality Base Layer

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

    I'm 5'11" and 175lbs - I wear a 32 x 32 jean. I bought a medium and they fit great - not too tight, not too loose. Probably could even fit into a small honestly.

    Pros:
    - These are decently warm and are my go to layer for under my (shell) Arc'teryx Theta SV bibs for both resort and backcountry skiing. They almost run a touch hot for touring, but with the side zips on the bibs they're able to dump heat well enough.
    - Wick moisture away! Can't ask for more on that.
    - Have a good fit. No weird hugging in places it shouldn't.
    - Long term durability seems fine. Have only used them for a season, no QC issues to speak of.

    Cons:
    - Being synthetic, it will pick up funky odors faster than wool. These aren't too bad, but noticeable after several days of tour (ie hut trips).

    Overall, can't go wrong with these. Great pair of bottoms for a base layer and will last a few seasons for you!

    Climbing in the cold?

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I've always worn under armour base layers since they've been in the game so long. When i got my first pair of Capilene bottoms i wore them and couldn't believe how soft and stetchy and comfortable they were. I haven't worn a pair of under armour bottoms since. These things breath great, feel like you're wearing nothing but also keep you warm when you need that extra layer. I highly recommend everyone try these out.

    Great layer

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

    Warm and comfortable. Great next to skin layer. I wear these with non insulated ski pants at the resort and touring. Good weight for most resort and touring days. Great for lounging around on the couch as well.

    NICE piece

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

    Warm enough for most resort days when it is not super cold (I wear shell pants, not insulated) and cool enough for cooler touring days. (might be a bit warm for warmer touring days.)

    Good Base Layer

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

    I purchased these for a good mid base layer for Alpine riding out west. This is a very warm good base layer, and has good wicking properties. I have other base layers from diff. brands and the material is very comfortable and non chafing. I have a size large(I have mediums in burton mid layer pants for comparison.

    2nd Pair

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

    I just bought my second pair. First pair lasted me for almost two years, and I still continually use them . These are hands down my favorite base layer, light, warm, no constriction, and incredibly comfortable.

    Great Baselayer

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

    Awesome base layer for skiing and they work good under normal street cloths when it gets cold. The fit was just right and they are very comfortable.

    Very Comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Worn these a couple times to keep warm when attending outdoor sporting events in late fall. They certainly helped me to stay warm and were very comfortable and light weight enough that I didn't even notice them when worn under jeans. Very comfortable and warm but they also breath very well. Liked them so much I am buying them as Christmas gifts for my dad this year. I'm a 32 waist and got the medium and the fit is pretty good.

    awesome warmth

      Capiline Thermal is the warmest baselayer bottom offered by Patagonia, and definitely my favorite. It's super comfortable next to skin, layers well under ski pants, and I don't overheat while touring or boot packing in the resort.

      Unanswered Question

      Why are outdoor clothing companies still making base layers with a seam right in the middle of the seat?!! If I wanted something stuck between my hot cross buns I'd wear a thong!

      How do these compare in thickness to the R1 hoody? Or if anyone has experience with UA base layers, how do these compare in thickness? I would say Capilene lightweight is about the same as UA 1.0 base layer, how do these midweight compare? Thank you.

      Ok, I received these and they look and feel great. I wanted to update for anyone that may be interested in the UA comparison. I would say the grid in these Capilene midweight are closest to UA 2.0 in thickness which is what I hoped for. I seem to overheat in my legs easily. These are just a little thicker than the Capilene lightweights I have. I will review once I have worn them a few times and can comment on how warm they are. Just waiting on a day cold enough to give them a go.
