Our multifunctional, durable and easy-layering Capilene® polyester baselayers wick moisture away from your skin, breathe efficiently and dry fast to provide a foundation of comfort and temperature regulation for any pursuit. They also feature Polygiene® permanent odor control that stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, so you can wear more and wash less.
Exclusive, recycled-content fabrics highlight the environmental position of the Capilene line, and all of our baselayers are recycleable through our Common Threads Recycling Program. All fabrics are also bluesign® approved, ensuring the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.
We make our Capilene baselayers in three weights for different levels of exertion and temperatures. We’ve also created a new class of Capilene baselayer for everyday activity and wear.
Capilene® Thermal Weight is the warmest, most breathable polyester baselayer with minimal bulk. The Polartec® Power Grid™ fabric has a smooth face for easy layering and contains 30-92% recycled polyester.
Capilene® Midweight is our most versatile baselayer with the greatest comfort range. It hits the sweet spot of weight, breathability and wicking that, worn alone or with additional layers, is the essence of versatility. Constructed with a Polartec Power Grid fabric with 93% recycled polyester content, it has a smooth face for easy layering and a brushed-back grid that aids in wicking as well as warmth.
Capilene® Lightweight is our lightest-weight, fastest-drying and best-wicking baselayer. The 100% recycled polyester fabric has a subtle grid pattern that sits lightly and comfortably on the skin, and a smooth outer face that glides easily in any layering system.
Our newest Capilene baselayer category is called “Daily,” but uncommon qualities like Fair Trade Certified™ sewing and 50-UPF sun protection make our Capilene® Daily styles something out of the ordinary. The fabric has the wicking performance backbone of Capilene polyester, but in a stretchier, regular fit most suited to everyday pursuits, work or play. Polygiene permanent odor control means less washing and longer wearing, which adds to the value of this multifunctional collection.
