I've worn this every day since I got it in the mail. I originally bought it to wear over my leotard during ballet class or over a sports tank at the beginning of yoga. However, it's become the first think I throw on over a t-shirt and I've even dressed it up with a scarf to go out to the movies. It's definitely thin, and I wouldn't call it a jacket, but it's definitely great for layering. I like to layer it with my patagonia better sweater or fleece quarter snap. Another plus, it really doesn't smell. I went almost week without washing it (sorry, that's kind of gross), but it didn't smell! I bought the black--it's a bit sheer, but that doesn't bug me. Seems true to size.
You will not even know you are wearing this top. It is So light. I wear it on top of swim suits when I don't want complete sun. I wear it on top of tank in my house or when I head to a movie. I don't even know it is on but it serves as that extra layer I need. You will feel like you have a tank on, but you will have a bit of extra protection. LOVE IT. YOU WILL TOO. My favorite Patagonia item (and I am a true addict).
This layer is seriously awesome, and essential!! I recently took it to Canyonlands National Park in Moab, UT and it did wonders for me!! Super chilly weather in the morning and during the night made this so necessary. I wore a tank top or a light t-shirt under it during the day so that when it warmed up mid-morning I could easily remove the layer and cool down. It did an excellent job of taking the sweat away from my body too!! Also, I wore this for four days straight without showering and it didn't smell as bad as I thought it would at the end. GREAT PRODUCT!!
I just picked one of these up a few weeks ago and have been wearing it everywhere since. It's lightweight, comfy and warm. What more can you ask for?? I've had it hiking and snowboarding and have been really happy with it so far.
I live in CA where it doesn't get too cold, and this has become my #1 winter running top. It keeps me warm, but is totally breathable so I don't get clammy. I'm 5'4" and 105lbs. The XS fits great. I currently have 3 of these, but will probably get more this winter, because I like to wear them for camping and hiking as well.
"A Staple to Your Outdoor Clothing Wardrobe"
You can't question Capilene - this stuff is AWESOME! Incredible light weight, quick to dry, wicking, resists stink (I wore mine a FEW days in a row - hiking and skiiing!), great colors.... wonderful baselayer and even looks great as outer shirt. I recommend the zip neck, as it's less restrictive than a crew neck and helps cool you off if you get a little warm. Capilene fits very true to size – you want it close to your skin, but not tight. You should have a least 2 of these in your drawer!
"Perfect for base layer, moisture wicking AND cute!"
I got this product in lime green and right from the start loved the color - very bright and an added bonus for hiking in hunting season. I wore it for 5 days straight hiking in virginia in the fall and it didn't get odorous or grimy - it kept me perfectly ventalated! It's very well made, I've only ever had good experiences with Patagonia products.
"THIS PULLOVER IS VERY STYLISH, AND WARM."
PULLOVER IS VERY STYLISH AND WARM ALSO. I LOVE LAYERING WITH TEES UNDERNEATH AND TOP IT OFF WITH A CUTE SCARF. NO NEED FOR A BIG BULKY COAT WHEN YOU WEAR THIS LIGHTWEIGHT PULLOVER. IT REALLY KEEPS YOU WARM.
I work in Yellowstone national park and this pullover is perfect for the rapidly changing weather in the mountains. It's great for chilly camping trips, and the cold snowy nights in late May! I like the longer zipper to get in some cool air if needed while keeping your neck and chest warm. Great for layering as well. Definitely recommend.
I have this in black and light grey and wear them all the time. They are incredibly warm and light weight. I like that they zip up because they allow me to keep my chest and neck warm but if I get too warm i can unzip to cool off a bit. I have only had this item in the winter but i think it will be great as a light weight pull over for summer nights as well. I disagree with some of the other reviewers that this is unflattering. The cut is narrow but not tight, the zipper can open up to be lower or higher. I feel super sexy in both of these. I'd love to purchase more.
