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 Tank is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great top! I have this top in four different colors. It's really light and feels like you're not wearing anything at all. It's the best for the gym, backpacking, hot yoga, running, or anything else where you're getting sweaty. It's also a flattering fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Tank This is my all-time favorite tank! The fit is flattering on my larger chest and leaves plenty of room for movement while rock climbing. I've put these tanks through the wringer on alpine and trad climbs, and they still look as good as new!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for outdoor activities! I bought this tank in both black and coral. I got them after a day of kayaking and needing something that would dry quickly. They do fit loose in the armpits, but that is something I like in a workout tank. I don't like tanks to cut off circulation or be restrictive when doing something physical. They dry fast, fit great (although I'm not really sure what to call this - L or XL, I usually wear a L in all Patagonia but this says 'Asia fit XL' on it. Not sure if that's because it's a slim fit. A lot of the Capilene stuff has that fitting on the tag)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I bought a bunch of these in different colors (blue, coral, and teal). I am about 5'5" and weigh about 125lbs, 36A chest, and the size small fits me exactly how I want a tank top to fit. Maybe the best fitting tank top I've ever had. Although, I will say to me, it seems like more of a regular fit than a slim fit, but maybe that's because I'm almost 40, and remember the slim fit sizing of Patagonia from 20 years ago. It is comfortable without being baggy, and I have experienced no armpit gap or the batwing effect other reviewers have mentioned (maybe that was more of an issue with the black tanks... I've noticed that sometimes different colors fit differently...). In my opinion the arm holes are perfect: not too tight or too loose. I hate when tanks/shirts feel constricting in the armpits, or rub my armpits; especially shirts/tanks that are meant for active pursuits. Yes, your bra is probably going to show in this tank (see picture of model). I find Patagonia's sizing/cut/fit to be pretty hit or miss... But to be fair, it is probably pretty frigging hard to make clothes that will fit every single body out there. I kinda preferred the older sizing that ran smaller, even if it meant I had to buy a size large, but this tank is a hit for me. It also keeps me comfortable while running in high temperatures. I never realized how awesome a shirt could be until I ran in this. I don't really like synthetic fabrics in summer because of the stink factor, and because I don't usually like the way they feel on my skin but so far, the polygiene stuff is working, and this shirt has been crazy comfortable. Also, I think the cut of the tank is really flattering for my body type, so bonus. Oh, and it dries super fast, so double bonus. If you trail run, or do any kind of high exertion activity in the summer, I think you will really like this tank.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from runs a little big Super lightweight and breathable, I have ran and hiked in mine and it almost feels as if you are not wearing anything! Easy to layer over. It does run big, I am a true small across Patagonia tops, however I wish I had gotten an XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, comfy, fast drying What a great top. Will be buying more. Definitely runs big, but I don't find the fit to be off. Got soaked when out for a hike and it dried so quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and dry I bought this after my friend wore it at the Boston marathon. I just ran a marathon in it last weekend and I love it!!! I am going to actually buy another one in a different color!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Super Weird Fit I am very reliably a medium in Patagonia tops; I kept double checking the tags to make sure they didn't accidentally send me an XL in this top. It has an incredible amount of excessive fabric under the armpits — it hangs out like batwings. The neckline slips down well past the top of my sports bra, and nearly all of my sports bra is visible in the back, as well as under my arms. It's really kind of crazy.
