    Low-bulk warmth.

    Don't overlook the importance of your baselayer when venturing into high and cold environments. Made with Polartec Power Grid fleece fabric, the Patagonia Men's Capilene Thermal Weight Hooded Zip-Neck Top insulates when you rest, lets heat escape when you're on the move, and efficiently wicks moisture as you sweat, meaning you stay warm and dry when it matters most. In addition to its performance fabric, the Capilene Thermal Weight also features an anatomical design, slim-fitting hood, thumbholes, and flatlock seams to deliver a comfortable, bulk-free fit.

    Almost Flawless

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Can't complain. It's warm, comfortable, and looks great. Plus the sizing seems perfect. The only downside is that one of the thumb loops broke after wearing it for about two weeks, but that was easy to sew back up and hasn't given me a problem since.

    Great piece of Clothing for Backpacking

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 192lbs

    Saw this item on other through hikers gear list and decided to add it to my own. I am so glad that I did. It replaced my long sleeve shirt and is worn over my Ice Breaker Tech T-Shirt and often under a Patagonia Houdini Wind Shirt. Love the Hoodie for quick on and off and the ability to regulate heat through the 3/4 zipper. I personally like the thumb loops to keep the sleeves pulled down to cover the wrist. The material is awesome, not to thick or thin and very breathable and quick drying. A valuable layer and piece to the clothing list; yet lightweight and easily packable.

    Favorite new backpacking/travel addition

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    Recently purchased this and absolutely love it. I've been wearing it a ton backpacking, camping and traveling. It seems to be a perfect weight to wear alone for moderate temps, and works great to layer for colder nights. Wore it every evening without washing on a recent 10-day camping trip and didn't have issues with odors. Easy to rinse, clean and dry easily from anywhere. Highly recommended.

    Best, warmest base layer I've worn

    • Size Bought: XXL
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    I own this in the hoody, quarter zip and crew and also the pants. It's very warm and the stretchy material is fantastic. It also breathes very well. It fits a little small for me, I normally wear XL, I'm 5'10 200 with a 46 chest and the XXL fits me perfectly.

    NEW FAVORITE!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    If you're like me, I always find myself over heating in the R1, so I purchased this as an alternative. I love this thing! Wicks really well, dries fast and the right weight to keep from being drenched in sweat. Use it mostly for AT skiing where the cardio is high. Layer it under a thin shell for the skin up and the hood works well under a helmet. Has little thumby things, but I don't typically use those on any garment.

    Patagonia under layers are the best!

      Bought for my husband. We're both huge fans of Patagonia under layers. This is a very functional layer on the warmer end of their options. Usual excellent quality. Highly recommended

      Like Turning on a Heater

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: medium
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      One of the best baselayers I have ever owned. Not only is the inside comfy but it is so warm. When I first put this on, I immediately noticed it trapping heat and warming me up, but it also breathes enough that I can leave it on and not suffocate in a sauna. I typically wear mediums and this was no exception. It fit great. It has a slim snug fit but with out being to form-fitting or revealing. I can easily throw it on and just wear it as warm top in my everyday life or I can use it as a toasty layer to keep me warm on the ski hill. It is so versatile. In particular, I love the hoop which fits perfectly under my bike and ski helmet to keep me warm without being too bulky. My only complaint is that getting the zipper to fully zip can be a little bit of a hassle.

      Patagonia Thermal Weight Hooded Zip-Neck

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      I ordered the Patagonia Thermal Weight Hooded Zip-Neck Top last minute for a 5 day backpacking trip on the AT in late October through the Grayson Highlands area. Backcounty was very helpful in making sure I received it in time. I have always had a great experience with their customer service.

      Now for the review! I was watching Red Beard'€™s video on the AT and he highly recommended this piece so I bought in and I was not disappointed. I did not want to take it off. It worked well through a range of temperatures 40-60's. Great around camp and on the trail. Even when It was warmer the ¼ zip allowed some ventilation and the quick drying material wicked away the moisture. The hood was awesome. I was constantly putting my hood off and on while hiking over the balds in and out of the shade. Instant warmth and protection quickly. The piece worked very well under my down hooded jacket. Double hoods in the cold for the win! I bought the black version which did not show dirt but in the intense sun warmed up quickly but not too much. I will be buying a second one in a different color because it is such a versatile piece.

      Sizing. It is designed to be a tight fit. I am 5'€™10" 170lbs and typically am between a medium and large. I ordered the medium and it fit perfect. I wore a close fitting undershirt and it was a perfect combo. The hood design has a high collar and can be worn without the hood up. When up it cradled my face well and left my mouth area open.

      This would be a great piece for skiing and many other outdoor adventures. The waffle like weave worked well for wicking and comfort. The fabric felt nice and it showed no wear for the 5 days of rugged use. I hope this review is useful to for my fellow adventures. I'€™ll meet you on the trail!

      Patagonia Thermal Weight Hooded Zip-Neck

      Excellent shirt

        This shirt has the perfect amount of breathability and insulation. I wear it both in winter and cooler nights in the summer. This shirt fits perfect and it has nice long sleeves. Buy this. you not regret it.

        Versatile

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium
        • Height: 5'10"
        • Weight: 167lbs

        This is a great layer because you can go from fully unzipped and cool to zipped with hoodie and very warm. It is perfect for spring and fall climbing days when it is chilly when you start in the morning but warm by the time you finish. I just took this on a month climbing trip in Yosemite and it was perfect. My favorite combo is this and the Houdini because together they fit a very large temperature range! The elastic bands for the thumbs are great because they keep the layer right where it should be under other layers.

        Lightweight and warm

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

        I wear this pretty regularly when disc golfing in the winter in the mountain of North Carolina. On windy days, the hood does a surprisingly good job considering how thin the material is.

        Great mid-layer

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

        I tend to run cold in general, so I love this layer. This is a great piece to wear over a tech-t for just about everything active in the winter. It is slightly on the heavier side though, so maybe take a look at the Patagonia mid weight line if you want something a little lighter.

        Sweet piece of gear

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large
        • Height: 5'11"
        • Weight: 187lbs

        Warm, light and very packable. Hood and zipper make this layer very versatile. Highly recommend this thermal shirt.

        Dynamic Thermal

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large
        • Height: 5'11"
        • Weight: 160lbs

        This is such a great layer. Perfect for running, touring, or any vigorous activity in cold temperatures. The Polartec fleece combined with the 'ninja' style hood keeps your body and face warm in cold temps. I've been using this hoodie over an athletic shirt in 20-30 degree temps and been just fine. What is then surprising is how cool this thing keeps your body when you start breaking a sweat. It's very breathable and you can zip halfway down to air out even more. The fit is very snug to your body, not baggy at all. I typically wear a size medium but went with a large here, just a little looser to where the fit is snug but not skin-tight.

        Invaluable to say the least

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

        First of all, I'd like to give a huge thanks to Patagonia and Backcountry.com for hand selecting me to test and review the Thermal-Weight Capilene top.

        It's that time of year when a solid base layer is essential for active outdoor play. For me, whether it's getting some lift serviced laps on the local hill, early morning runs on the trail, or hiking on the frigid coast of Lake Superior as the sun sets, this base layer has become invaluable to me over the last few months. The fit hugs your body which is perfect and how a layer like this should fit. I really like the cut, gusseted underarms and build. Solid work by Patagonia once again. The small details like the thumb loops and the high collar are huge bonuses. I like that with the hood on and fully zipped, the collar acts as a built in neck gator - great for when the temps are low and the wind is blowing.

        The big thing for me is the Polar-tech Power Grid fleece fabric that Patagonia has used. It is super comfortable and keeps me warm in temps down to the single digits. Running is always the big test for me when it comes to testing the breathability of a fabric and this top performs beautifully. Even when I use my windshell (Patagonia Houdini) on my run, I don't find myself sweating through - something I've experienced before with other insulated tops.

        I really feel like this is the perfect cold-weather layer when temps are below 25. Whether it's chillin at camp during a winter outing in the backcountry, hitting the slopes at the local hill, or high-intensity activities like running or biking, it does it's job beautifully.

        Cold Morning Comfort

        Perfect for those cold mornings outdoors.
