Patagonia Capilene Midweight Crew Top - Men's
PatagoniaCapilene Midweight Crew Top - Men's

Just as important as your jacket.

Throw on the Patagonia Men's Capilene Midweight Crew Top before heading to the resort to shred pow all day in happiness. The Polartec Power Grid fabric provides superior warmth, breathability, and moisture-wicking performance for long-lasting comfort, and also has a smooth face to make layering a breeze. Offset shoulder seams and a flatlock construction do a fine job of minimizing chafing, while the gusseted underarms deliver a full range of motion. Make sure to slip your thumbs through the elastic loops for secure hand coverage and extra protection from the biting wind. The odor-fighting Polygiene treatment helps keep the amount of times you wash it to a minimum.

Feels nice on the skin!!

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

Really nice shirt...I like the material, it feels really nice on your body..I purchased this for a baselayer for some spring skiing in April, I think it fits the bill perfectly for that. Only thing I was not thrilled with was the fit..I purchased an XL based off the size charts and fit guides. XL is what I wear for my everyday shirts, I wanted this to be snug against my body...that’s what I put in the size guide questionnaire and it suggested XL, the shirt fits me like an everyday shirt would...maybe after it’s washed and dried it may tighten up but I’d suggest if you want it tight then go 1 size down.

Feels nice on the skin!!

Does the Job

Purchased this shirt as a gift for my husband who researched and researched just what midweight shirt he would like best. This is a winner! It's true to size, and the descriptions provided on the site are accurate. He will typically layer this shirt beneath a vest. I'm giving this 4 stars because this is a standard, quality mid-weight shirt that holds up to true Patagonia standards. I'm sure there are just-as-good shirts out there, but my husband has a preference to Patagonia and we will likely be purchasing again.

Great gear

Very happy with the base layer. Very comfortable and warm.

Too big. Useless

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

I used the size chart carefully and made sure Medium is my size. The shirt is too big (more like a t-shirt, not a base layer)

Average medium wt crew

Not worth money you just pay for the name...have cheaper similar shirts that are more comfortable...disappointed!

I can feel all the seams

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

This is my very first Patagonia base layer. I love Patagonia - their clothes fit me very well and boy do they last. But I though it was strange how I could feel literally every single seam. For the money and reputation of the brand I was surprised and sorta disappointed.

My EMS capilenes are a fraction of the price and more comfortable. Can't say I'll buy more base layers from Patagonia when there are better, cheaper options.

I'm sorry this didn't work for you. I'm definitely a fan. Thanks for sharing this, Justin.

A favorite baselayer

Capilene mid-weight is one of my favorite baselayers. I know the fit on me is perfect, love picking more of these up when on sale!

Jack of All Trades

Love me some Capilene.
This shirt is my go to in both 100 degree heat as well as 0 degree days on the mountain. 'nuff said.
(It also is great at keeping the BO under control, which other people certainly appreciate)

Perfect.

Neck is not too tight and not too loose. It doesnt hold the funk of shredding all day either like some layers. I will be buying these from now on for sure.

Comfortable

    I picked one of these up for my brother in-law for Christmas. He needed a new baselayer to replace his 10 year old HH LIFA and this hit the spot. It fits well, is comfortable and I'm sure will hold up well over the years.

    Must have

    I bought this for my boyfriend even though he already has about 4 of these, he HAD to have a black one too. I'm not kidding when I say that he wears one of these everyday so it was worth it to add a couple more of these base layers to the arsenal. However, these guys are so breathable, they can be worn for several days of running, biking, backpacking, etc. without washing and still be fresh enough to cozy up next to (#GirlFriendApproved). He has worn this in 16* snow in the Tetons and 80* sun in San Diego to keep the sun off. This base layer does it all and doesn't quit.

    Versitile Base Layer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Super warm and comfy. I wear this under my ski jacket in a wide range of temperatures. This is a great versitile base layer.

    Light and comfortable

    • Fit: True to size

    This feels very nice against the skin. It doesn't fit extremely tight which is great. It is perfect for biking on a cold day.

    excellent value

    if you can't be bothered with maintaining a cumbersome wool base layer, this is the solution.
    Garment feels nice against the skin, even when wet, it dries fast, and the over all quality of stitching and details are just excellent. And at this price you can afford to have an extra layer in the pack for the way home/down.

    Patagonia Capilene

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Patagonia capilene is generally accepted as one of the best synthetic baselayers around. I'd have to agree. Knowing its a patagonia piece adds to the excellence because i know the quality is there and it was produced with thought about sustainability.

    Base layer quiver

    This is my go to base layer. I wear it right under my shell for touring on 20-30 degree days and with a 1/4 zip Capilene for colder days (10-20). Great wicking so you don't get cold at the top. It's not a fitted layer which is nice for casual use. Patagonia is on point with the Capilene line. I look forward to getting a lightweight for hiking this summer.

    Great Base Layer

    The Capilene midweight and thermal weight base layers are a staple for my winter running. The high tech fabric wicks moisture exceptionally well and does an excellent job of retaining heat. Topped off with a windproof shell, you are good to go with temperatures down to the upper teens - and much lower if you add another layer. The quality of these garments is first rate - currently my first choice in base layer winter running gear.

    For my bro

    I ordered this for myself initially, but after trying it on, it was just too big. I'm 6'0, 170 lbs. I have some older capilene from Patagonia and the Large fit great. I ordered a Large with this one and ended up giving this to my brother who is 6'2, 215. The large was a great fit for him, and he loves it. Seems to fit more true to size than previous years. Great base layer for any occasion.

    For my crew

    I bought this as a christmas present for my brother, he loves it! It keeps him nice and toasty when he is snowboarding. They breathe really well and don't hold in too much stank. It is a great quality item, what you should expect from patagonia. Get for cold days.
