The Patagonia Men's Capilene Lightweight Crew is a lightweight base layer for staying comfortable and layering up. In the sun or hidden beneath thicker layers, the light base wicks moisture and dries quickly, for all day comfort. When hitting the trail on your daily run, you're getting 35 UPF protection from the sun, while out on the slopes you're getting next-to-skin comfort and extra warmth. Crazy how one little bit of polyester double knit fabric can do so much. Underarm gussets and off-set shoulder and side seams put movement at a maximum, even when wearing a pack. And finally, a shirt without the stink, Polygiene® permanent odor control deters scent from sinking in so you can wear it for another day.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

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 Very versatile This is an excellent top for heavy exertion in cold weather. I have also found it to be just right for sleeping in a chilly environment if you need just a little more warmth. It is truly light weight and would not be the best if you had to be sedentary in a cold environment. Wicks moisture very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Comfortable and Functional! Love the material, effectively wicks away moisture. I am starting to replace my cotton base layers with this material for the summer. I am 6' and 150lbs and the medium fits perfect. Not skin tight but form fitting.

Is this shirt suitable for hiking in hot weather? Looking for long sleeve to protect from sun and insects, but don't want something that will stick to me and make me hot. 

Asked by: Matt
Thanks for the question! This Capilene does offer UPF 35 protection, but nothing to deter bugs. I would suggest the ExOfficio "BugsAway" line. Specifically the Men's BugsAway Chas'Air Crew LS Shirt. It has UPF 30 protection as well as Insect Shield® Repellent Technology. In addition to being odor resistant, quick drying, and moisture wicking. I hope this helps!

Would this work as a swim shirt for a super skinny guy?

Asked by: Landond13
Hey Landond13, Thanks for your interest in The Patagonia Mens Capilene. The Shirt has 35 UPF built in which would offer you some protection from the sun however, swimming may not have been what Patagonia had in mind when designing the shirt.
