Men's Fit Guide Details & Info

Patagonia's measurements refer to body size and NOT garment dimensions. Sorry for yelling about it.

Each Patagonia product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, and below are their generalized four fit descriptions, and details about each fit. The Patagonia fit for each style can be found in the product description features or specifications.

• Conforms to the body's contours.

• Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.

• Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers. Men's regular fit pants have a slimmer fit through that thigh, lower leg, and cuff.

• Drapes loosely on the body. Men's relaxed fit pants have a bit of extra room through the hip, thigh, lower, and cuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST QUALITY LONG-UNDERWEAR AROUND I purchased my first pair of Patagonia Capilene bottoms over 10 years ago when I first went out to Alaska to work the slime line (if you've done it, you know what it is), and haven't purchased any other brand since. I have light weight and heavy weight, and now added these medium weight to my collection. I pretty much wear these every day starting in October til March or when it warms up. I'm an avid outdoorsman and wear them everyday to work as well. Very durable, and last a long time as long as you take care of them. I still wear the first pair I bought over 10 years ago. If I could only use a sewing machine to fix the waist band.....Daaaaaad! ,,,,Jiggin Joe

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent base layer Very comfortable and lightweight, and the construction seems durable. Surprisingly warm for the weight. Wicks moisture away well (though I'm not convinced about the effectiveness of the "Gladiodor odor control"). Had my doubts about the elastic waistband, but it never even began to chafe. I'm 5'10" 135 lbs and size S gives me the correct "slim fit". Good for skiing because the fit is just loose enough around the ankles and calves that these can be rolled up above the boot rather than being trapped down into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like making summer into a pair of pants The bitter December winds prompted me to break down and buy these. I have loved my Capilene shirt and have been anxious to try these out and I was not disappointed. Since I have purchased them I have hiked with them, worn them as pajamas, worn them with running shorts, and loved every second. I even wore them under my dress clothes while photographing a wedding. They are lightweight, breathable, odor resistant, and warm. ,,They blow my old-school waffle thermals out of the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as underwear get These are solid construction and gladly meet all the hype about Patagonia base layers. Amazing construction with over sewn seems and great soft fabrics. To test these I wore them under running shorts for a midwinter run. I went a couple of miles through the snow and blowing wind and I never felt a bit of wind come through. I also used them winter backpacking and with great success. No fancing sizing, just buy your normal size. I will never buy anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have tried these first! I have tried several different types of long underwear in the past, but this is my first pair of Capilene pants. I have to say that I am very impressed and pleased with this material. The Cap-3 is lightweight, highly compressible, breathable, flexible, warm, and comfortable. They fit close to the skin, but do not constrict like tights or bunch up behind the knees or under the crotch. These pants deliver all the things, and more, that I want from my base layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfortable Great baselayer for skiing! Wicks sweat well and keeps me dry. But it's so comfortable and versatile that I wear these as PJ's to bed both when backpacking and at home. Great for lounging around the house too. They are form fitting but not too tight. I also wear these under slacks and dress pants for more formal days- keeps me warm! These are my go-to long undies for colder days. I go to these so often that I bought another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Worth It This is quite simply the most well-made and comfortable base layer I've ever worn. Lightweight, and breathable, the capilene material feels good against the skin (not scratchy). Plus, these bottoms are wonderfully designed to provide a snug, non-restrictive fit. They'll provide more-than-adequate warmth in chilly to moderately cold conditions when worn under jeans or a shell. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My primary base layer. I use this pants everywhere. Summer, autumn, winter, spring - whenever. They are really work and always keep you dry. In "high" mountains or when it's just cold I always use them with polartec 200 and hard shell layers in different combinations. I guess it gives wider choice than if you just wear heavyweight base layer and hard shell.
