This does exactly what it is expected, a solid good base layer, that keeps you warm in cold weather, but won't burn you when the temperature increases. I'm 5'5 and 125 lbs, the small fits perfectly. The cut was great that I look slimmer than I actually am. Will buy more for sure
My wife has had a Capilene zip neck for over 10 years....since she was in 8th grade. She has grown since then so I just ordered her a size larger. The old one is still in perfect shape, despite being used for over a decade on hikes, climbs, and skiing ranging from Michigan's UP to the Tetons.
Love this pull over! I got it for hiking in a few weeks but I can't seem to stop using it. It's not very thick but keeps me warm riding bike from place to place. It's also super cute with the zipper and how it shows more of your body shape. Also love the cool colors, I personally got the pinky and white stripes with gray sleeves and would recommend it!
Okay, I am a Patagonia addict. I love Cap 2 and Cap 4 stuff. I love the full zip cap 4 and the zip neck cap 2. My life would not be complete without those 2 styles. This one, I could live without. Cap 3 fits "big" and is just an odd weight. My personality craves "feeling naked" (like there is nothing on my skin) - that is Cap 2 - or it craves feeling like I am in a big, cozy warm embrace - that is Cap 4 stuff. Cap 3 just feels like, well, normal clothes. If you need "normal", then go for this and consider sizing down. I own several Cap 3's and DO wear them, so they are useable, just not my fave's at all. Hope that helps!
"Perfect for cold weather camping and hiking"
I took this shirt on a 12 day Alaska mountaineering trip and it kept me warm! I layered a thinner base layer under it no problem. The zipper on the front was great for when I got warm. I was easily able to layer my two base layers under several other layers of warm clothing (temps below freezing most of the time). I am VERY happy I bought this shirt and would recommend it for cold weather camping/backpacking/hiking. The shirt did not restrict movement and was quite comfortable to live in for multiple days.
This baselayer was exactly what i needed when we went to the Smokies over Spring Break. Temperatures varied from 30s-60s and it was great layered or solo. The zipper also went down further than expected and made it easy to vent or take off quickly. I was very pleased with this product. It also doesn't smell bad after being worn several days, which is definitely a plus!
I love this Patagonia zip neck. It's great for walking, hiking, running errands, etc., and it's flattering. I normally purchase size S or M in Patagonia, but I chose an XS in this after reading other reviews. The XS is even a little roomy, but it still fits. (I'm 5'6, 115 lbs.) The Sandstone Stripe/Rubellite Pink is a pretty color.
Sadly, like other retailers, Patagonia appears to be sizing up for fat Americans. I am 5'6" (36C) and I now wear an XS; I should not wear an XS. I have 2 of these shirts, both of which look great with the contrasting colors. My main complaint is that the external serging on the forearm seams, while stylish, tends to fuzz up with crack climbing. Fortunately it's less noticeable than the fuzz on my mountain hardware shirt with the serging across the chest, which has fallen victim to squeeze chimney routes.
This is another awesome piece of Patagonia clothing! I love everything about it, except that I wish I would have gone down a size. I wear a large in almost every Patagonia top I own, and should have ordered a Medium for this one. It is supposed to be slim fitting, so I recommend going a size down or it might be a little baggy. Still cute and functional though!
