Patagonia Men's Long-Sleeved Capilene® Cool Trail Shirt

True To Size
September 2, 2020

Perfect Weight

Great material weight. Mango color is bright and highly visible. Hope it wears well over time and resists staining.

This shirt changed my life

I cant wear anything else. This shirt is now my go to no matter what I'm doing. The cool trail shirt is a bit tougher than the ligther weight fabrics and resists pulls and pills. All of the trail shirts, regardless of material weight, run true to size -prior to being washed. I try to keep it out of the dryer at all costs, but over time the M... Read Moreedium size became too small for me so I order Large now and they end up fitting perfectly!

Works great!

Keeps the sun off me while working outside and in greenhouses as an organic farmer. Loose enough to let sweat evaporate. SUPER SOFT! Great product.

Always been weary of synthetic tees. Never liked how they felt so Ive always just stuck with natural fiber tees for active wear. Been trying to enjoy the outdoors more but my standard cotton gym shirt is not cutting it out on the trail (especially being summer in southeastern US). Looked all over for recommendations and many of them pointed me here... Read More. I decided to take a chance on this shirt. As soon as I got the shirt, I tried it on. Was very impressed with it. The fit is spot on but was really surprised by how much it felt like a natural fiber shirt. It almost feels like a bamboo shirt. Added bonus is that wife liked it too. Been wearing it for my workouts and it continues to impress. This is will now be my go to shirt for activewear (workout, trail, beach, bike). You could also wear this casually as it has a great minimal look void off huge logos/techy detailing. The fit is actual true to size but maybe considered to fit small compared to other manufacturers sizing. If you are leaner go with actual size, if you are carrying a few extra pounds then size up. Long story short, Im ridiculously picky and this is my Goldilocks shirt. Looking forward to getting a ton of use out of it.

Comfy, but Pilling! :(

Bought a couple of these for my husband this past winter (he has worn/been a huge fan of your silkweight capilene shirts for 20 years). He said these new shirts were just as comfy/true to size as the silkweight kind; but unfortunately, even after just one wash (I followed wash instructions & let it air-dry), there was lots of pilling, esp aroun... Read Mored the collar area. He wears these during the colder months to work, under a golf shirt... so unfort, since there is pilling at the collar, it is visible under his golf shirt collar, which just makes for not a very "neat" appearance. The silkweights have never pilled, as a comparison. We both remain HUGE Patagonia fans tho! :)

We really appreciate you taking the time to express your feedback on the pilling. We are glad to hear you remain big fans and we understand, pilling can be a nuisance. Unfortunately, pilling with knit garments is inevitable but there are many products that can help to remove them. With that being said, you are more than welcome to [send]( anything back to us for a warranty evaluation.

Good fit but the arm length is a tad short. Wore this twice and it felt good but the Pilling around the neck occurred after the first workout.

So soft and light

Love this shirt. I got a short sleeved and a long sleeved version. The long sleeve is decently warm, and they're both thin and super soft. I've been wearing them climbing in the gym and they work out great. I'm 6'1" and got size Large, but a Medium might have worked as well. The sleeves are a bit long for climbing, so the s... Read Moreize M may have worked out better but I'm still very happy with these shirts.

Base layer to coffee

From a a base layer to a hike to the street it performs. I’m wide through the upper body the XL fits perfect.

Fits fine. Feels okay. But nothing special. Not worth the cost. I'm a large but with very broad shoulders and it fit fine.

Absolutely amazing

My new favorite shirt.

Great shirts and base layers for the cold!

Bought several pairs of these for hiking in Zion in November -- they were great base layers; fit great and felt comfortable! I'd recommend these for most outdoor physical activities

Stylish & Softer than Cashmere

I travel A LOT teaching yoga all over the world and this shirt [I’ve got 3 now] is incredibly comfortable and versatile. It’s my carry-on go-to shirt. They’re great for the plane, on a hike, for yoga or a casual night out. The fabric has a hint of metallic shimmer that gives it an extra sense of depth and modern style.

Soft Mobility

Soft to the touch. Moves in a variety of uses from running to mountain bike and as a light baselayer under vets during skiing. Very versatile in warmer days when skin coverage is needed to moderately cooler temps during aerobic adventures. Perfect fit, cut, sleeve and torso length. I am 5'9 and 145 lbs and Small fits me perfect.

Perfect for a layer when your not sore if you’ll need it, light enough to pack without taking up room.

Nice Fabric, Poor Fit

Nice fabric but didn't fit me well. Length was good but the fit around the midsection was too loose. This would be an awesome shirt in a more athletic/slim fit.

Capilene cool trail shirt journey

The shirts were bought for my husband who traveled to 3 different countries recently...Beirut, Istanbul & Tel Aviv. He loved the feel and comfort!

Perfect Fall Athletic/Casual Piece

Makes a good base layer for moderate-effort fall exercising, ie. hiking, mountain biking, and running. Makes an equally adept casual piece with the incredibly soft material. Soft colors look fantastic.

Cool running’s

Autumn temps have cooled down enough to really enjoy the Capilene Cool Trail. At about 12c found it had just the right amount of heat retention on a trail run, while breathing and not overheating. Best part was post run staying comfortable and not feeling chilled. Had a good amount of sweat worked up and pretty odour less, true to its claim, no itc... Read Moreh either. The material is soft and just feels nice, it’s not clammy or sticky. I’m male about 5,7” and 150lbs, the small is a great fit, a bit loose, perfect length in arms and torso. Strongly recommend it for cooler evenings, autumn temps 0-15c. I think it will be a great piece on its own (a single base layer) for alpine/ cross country skiing under a top layer depending on temps and humidity. When the temps are around 0c and there’s a wet snow falling, I think it’s going to be awesome!

Nice T-shirt

I normally wear medium from Patagonia, but based on other reviews I got a large that fits good. Still a little tight in the chest. Very soft material, too soon to see if it piles like another reviewer indicated.

Nice piece, feels like thick

Nice piece, feels like thick cotton.

Favorite Shirt

I've been having trouble wearing any other shirt. This thing is as soft as it gets and seems to hold up pretty well. I've worn it hiking and fishing a few times, super breathable and light, but not cheap feeling. I've only washed it once, and haven't noticed any real shrinkage or piling yet.

Love, Love, Love

I am a 5’11” 183lb male with a 32 inch waist, size 42 jacket. I live in Florida, wanted a long sleeve light weight shirt. I bought a similar lightweight shirt years ago and I liked it. When I saw these shirts I bought one - loved it. Immediately bought two more. I have four now . I wear them boating frequently and they are holding up well. Nice fit... Read More - love this shirt.

Weird Fit

I'm 5'10 and weigh 160. I think I have a really average body shape. Fit Most mediums. I ordered a medium in this shirt. The sleeves were short, the torso was long, the shoulders are narrow and it just feels weird. I tried it on and packed it back up and will be returning. PLEASE patagonia designers, It was a few years ago your fit got na... Read Morerrow and tall for some reason and now I don't fit into your jackets or shirts like this. Can we go back to the classic fit?

Don’t get me wrong, the shirt is really comfortable...but it started pilling almost immediately in the back, and I have only taken it out once with a backpack. Now it dosnt look great anymore.
