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.

Women's Capilene® Lightweight Crew is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it in short sleeves, had to have it in long This lightweight capilene works perfectly for my needs as a base layer in all kinds of weather. I live in a climate where light merino wool is often my base layer. But for high-intensity activities, I like this lightweight capilene next to my skin better. It wicks better and is softer. Also does not stink at all, like some materials. I also like the nonintrusive loops on the cuffs, allowing me to pull the sleeves over my wrists without making the cuffs so tight I can't push them up when needed. This checks all the boxes for me and I love the fit too. Not too snug and not too loose - just right for this picky Goldilocks! I am 5'3" tall, weigh 125 lbs. and have an athletic build. I typically wear a size 4 and Small in Pati gear/clothes. The size Small in this crew fits me perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, not smelly! The Patagonia capilene line is just great. I’ve worn my lightweight crew baselayer now several seasons, and outside of a couple of snags from washing, they continue to perform and perform. And the best part: after a long day carving and slip sliding around on the slopes, these base layers don’t reek and knock out my ski buddies and family when I peel off layer after layer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seams scratch like knives The seams in the black top scratched like knives. Seriously. The black bottoms were not quite as bad, but still very scratchy. When I returned them, the salesperson could feel it just with his hand and agreed it would be torture to wear. Hopefully they are not all this way. I've worn the old silk weight for years and loved them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking Great coverage from the sun. Fabric feels good and does what it says....wicks away moisture so one stays comfortable and I am impressed with the odor control

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed When Silkweight was no longer available , I tried this. Scratchy and uncomfortable against my bare skin. Please Patagonia, bring back your Silkweight tops, I loved them??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great baselayer! I love this shirt! I have worn it hiking as a baselayer and it also layers very easily over a tank as a mid layer. I wear a small throughout all of Patagonia's tops/jackets. I got this top in a small and it is a little looser than expected through the torso however I don't think I would want an XS. Very comfortable and lightweight, going to order more!
