The Capilene® Lightweight Crew is made of our lightest-weight, fastest-drying and best-wicking baselayer fabric. A subtle grid pattern allows the fabric to sit lightly and comfortably on the skin, while the smooth outer face glides easily in any layering system. Highly breathable for high-exertion and warm conditions, the fabric is 100% recycled polyester treated with Polygiene® permanent odor control. Features include a self-fabric collar with internal neck tape for chafe-free comfort, full underarm gussets for unhindered shoulder mobility, elastic thumb loops to help cover hands, flatlock seams that minimize chafing, offset shoulder and side seams that lie smoothly beneath pack straps, and a drop tail for additional coverage. Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.

Capilene® Polyester Baselayer

Made from moisture-wicking polyester, Capilene® synthetic baselayers wick moisture away from your skin, breathe efficiently and dry fast to provide the foundation for any layering system for any pursuit. Designed for fast-forward, aerobic activities, they’re quick to wick and quick to dry. Capilene polyester is made from recycled polyester (30% recycled content or more) and is also machine washable.

We make four Capilene fabrics for different levels of exertion and temperatures. All Capilene fabrics have achieved bluesign® approval; have an updated and consistent fit in each fabric weight; and use Polygiene® technology to control odor in the garment. They are the best baselayer option for high-sweat activities and wet conditions.

Men's Capilene® Lightweight Crew is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great year-round use. I love these shirts--I own 2. At first, I bought them for summer wear for a little sun protection without getting overheated, but I really use them year-round. In spring and fall I wear them as an outer layer for runs and during winter I wear one as a baselayer for runs. I also have a home gym in my New England basement, which gets down into the 50s on winter mornings and I wear these shirts to lift weights in, at least until I warm up. These are also a favorite for summer nights when on vacation in Maine They're very soft and comfortable. I'm 6'1" and 185lbs with I guess an athletic build (I don't think of myself as built, but I lift heavy 3-4 times a week and I'm a lot bigger than the average distance runner) and the large fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bicycle Touring I have three of these Cap Lightweight Long Sleeve. I used them on two bike trips across the U.S. They are perfect for riding in hot sun because they stay cool and airy and protect your forearms from sunburn. Actually cooler than short sleeves in the high desert and mountains in strong sun. Each shirt has about 8,000 miles on it. Red, White, Blue colors the red one is actually faded from the sun a little, the blue and red finally got a few holes catching brush in the woods on trails, but this only gives them character and smiles for the miles. I'm still wearing them! I'm 6' at 165 lbs and Medium fits, could be a little longer in sleeves for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but sleeves are too short Another fine Patagonia product, but similar to a comment I made about Patagonia's capilene thermal weight hoody, the sleeves on this lightweight shirt are too short. I wear a 33-34” dress shirt, so my arms are long, but not too long, so another inch or so would make this perfect--like my older capilene 3 and 4 baselayers. I’ll keep this shirt but probably won’t buy another unless Patagonia lengthens their sleeves or, like some companies, offer a “long” version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fresh and dries very fast I used this in the forest with a temperature of 71.6 F (22°C), you feel very cool and comfortable even when you're sweating (with a backpack), i put it at the sun and it dried in five minutes !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I've been trying to find a long sleeve shirt for hiking that would provide some sun protection without being too hot. Being tall and skinny, it was hard to find something that fit me while having sleeves that are long enough. This does everything I was looking for, and I love having the thumb loops to keep the sleeves in place!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer shirt Super light weight and breathable. M fits me great for 6'0 and 175. Works great in humid and arid conditions, but can't beat it for sunny days. Will definitely get another.
