Womens Main Stay T shirt

This shirt I bought in light blue and white. I love the fit and the feel of these 2 t shirts but they are to can see through them. I have to wear a camisole if I wear them out in public. I bought the dark blue and it's fine, you can't see through them.

A Very Cool Trail Shirt

Beautifully crafted and true to size, this comfortable shirt is an easy pick for daily wear as well as outdoor activities.

September 6, 2023

Great fit

Nice and soft, breezy and warm at the same time.

August 22, 2023

Nice and light weight

I love this top. It fits perfectly and works well to keep the sun off my arms on warm sunny days. It also works well as an under layer for added warmth on cold days. Plus it breaths well and dries fast!

Different texture from the Capilene Hoodie

I love my Capilene Cool Sun Hoodie and was really excited to get another long sleeve without a hood or high neckline. However, the texture on this shirt is much rougher and less flexible than the hoodie and it runs much smaller. I'll sadly have to return this.

Perfect summer shirt

I love it! I have it in four colors - my go-to summer long sleeve mountain biking/hiking shirt. I live in Phoenix. It's the perfect combination of breathability and sun protection.

April 1, 2023

Great top

This shirt drapes perfectly even with my long torso. I would wear it every day if i could. I just wish they made it in black or other dark shades. I would buy one for every day of the week!

February 3, 2023

thinner than old Capilene trail material

love these long sleeve Capilene shirts. i own six of the older version and gained weight so had to get one slightly bigger. this newer version is thinner and flimsier. they are all a bit small in the arms. Patagonia tend to not increase arm girth with size increase. otherwise, i like the shirt and hope to lose weight and fit into my older ones soon... Read More because they're better!

January 17, 2023

Nice fit!!

I was surprised that the Light Plume color shirt that I got for Christmas appears to have a thicker fabric than the navy one I purchased after Christmas. Kind of confusing?

Lovely crew neck

Good shirt for travel and walking on a sunny day. As usual, sleeves were long enough to cover my arms. Like that.

Gorgeous stripe long sleeve shirt

The material of this shirt is lovely and I bought it to wear with the cocoa brown vest. The colors match perfectly and they look gorgeous together.

Beautiful shirt, not for me, picture misleading

I really like Patagonia shirts - the material, the feel, the drape. I'm short, but large busted, so I usually get a large or XL and hem the shirt. (I wish they made a petite range in their women's clothing). I ordered this shirt in the Striped, Dusky Brown. I liked the pattern, the color and the material. Unfortunately the scoop of the ne... Read Moreckline is just way too wide and low for me and I am returning it. I went back to look at the picture to see how I got it wrong and realized that putting a size small on a 5'9" model looks a lot different than a size large on a 5'3" person. I hope my experience encourages other customers to take a closer look at the pictures before ordering. It would also help if Patagonia used a wider size range of models to understand how an article might look on an individual.

There has to be some kind of sorcery involved here. Keeps me warm when its cool, cool when its warm. Only shirt I found that met the challenge of packing for a month in the UK in a small carry on - 3 of these for two weeks on trails (odor control + dries almost instantly with hand wash) and two weeks in cities because the scoop neck gives it a more... Read More polished look for out and about. Fit is perfection (which I did not find to be true with its short-sleeved cousin). Colors are somehow both muted and rich. Not sure how this all got packed into one unicorn of a shirt.

nice all around top

I am over 65 yrs old, the low neck scoop and shape were not flattering for my age(?). Height 5'5" and weight 155lbs.

May 22, 2022

Low neckline and blah color

Super disappointed in this shirt. It does not drape as long in the back as I thought it would, the neckline in front droops super low which makes wearing a sports bra tricky, the arms were tight and the color was so muted compared to the photo. Not a fan! Dont want to go through the hassle of returning by mail but probably will never wear!

Great Versatile Shirt

I LOVE this long sleeve capilene shirt! It is light weight and I appreciate the tailored bottom. The scoop neck lends this top to more of a casual wear instead of use for outdoor sun protection, but it looks really nice!

February 17, 2022

Great shirt!

I bought one these a few years ago that I love and it continues to be one of my favorite active shirts. Added a second one to my collection and happy I did! Fit is great, color is lovely, and I especially love the length and sleeve length.

January 21, 2022

Feels good next to my skin

It's very soft and light. The colors are vibrant and I love the longer hem in the back.

December 3, 2021

Just OK

With a name like capilene cool I expected this shirt to be lighter weight. It is too hot for summer hiking. I bought it for kayaking, but have not used it for that yet. I also found the odor resistance to be lacking. I cannot wear it for more than one day if I get sweaty. I like the scoop neck for temperature control - I can wear it with or without...

Love it

I love this shirt. Its super soft and lightweight but also durable. Its great for fall because it can be worn alone but is easy to layer over top. It has held up through activities and going through the laundry.

September 9, 2021

Best cool long sleeved shirt

I love this for sunny mountain bike rides when I'm over wearing a sun hoody.

August 27, 2021

My new fav long-sleeved tee!

I love this shirt! The fit is flattering, the neckline isn't too low-cut, the fabric is so lightweight and breathable, and the colors are really pretty. It's high-performance enough for workouts, but pretty enough to wear to work with a cute skirt. I love it so much I ordered several in different colors.

July 29, 2021

Comfortable and versatile base layer

I purchased this shirt as a base layer for a trip to the Kenai Peninsula and Denali. It was comfortable in temperatures from 40F (with a vest and jacket) up to 70+F and did a great job at sun protection. It was also super soft! It was a great companion to the Cap/Cool Merino shirt that I wore on opposite days from this one on the same Alaska trip.

July 8, 2021

Too heavy for summer wear

Was hoping for a top that would be cool enough for outdoor exercise in summer while protecting me from the sun. Sadly this was too warm. Would be a great fall shirt.

March 16, 2021

a little stretch

This shirt, conceptually is good, but it is too long and too narrow with absolutely no stretch or give, so not really that comfortable and does not look particularly attractive on me. Maybe it would fit someone who is taller, better.

Soft and warm

The low scoop neckline lets me to wear this under almost any shirt and it remains invisible. The thin, lightweight fabric means that it doesn't feel bulky or bunchy.

Great fit and fabric

This shirt is super comfortable. It is soft, light and doesn't seem to hold sweaty odors. The fit is really flattering, slightly tapered, but not too fitted and a perfect length. I can wear it for work or play.

November 13, 2020

Simple shirt for the colder days

Its a great shirt to layer with. Its true to size. I can wear it for a hike or throw it on with a pair of jeans.

September 27, 2020

Finally! A flattering top for everyday wear.

Needed everyday tops that I could wear under work clothes or to Zoom meetings. These are flattering but don't cling in the wrong places. My favorite day to day tops. I bought five of them.

September 15, 2020

Material too thin

The material in this shirt is very thin and the fit runs small. I'm returning it. Patagonia made the return process easy!

September 2, 2020


I could not possibly love the fit, softness, and color more. My niece said, why do you wear that shirt every day? I DID, however, notice that after a few wears, it has pilled very hard on the forearms where they rest on a desk. It looks extremely worn. But I love it. I think too much to send it back. I did compare it to the navy capilene cool trail... Read More shirt I saw in rei a few weeks ago, and the material felt completely different. It seems lighter and thinner in the navy. How could this be? Did I possibly buy an older model in the purple color? Im curious.

Really comfortable

I usually wear a small. Ordered a small and found that this shirt fits bigger. They are a bit long and see-through, however I don't mind as I wear it during outdoor activities. The shirt is really comfortable, soft, and fresh. I've worn in 90 degree weather and felt cool. I ordered to protect myself from the sun and I would order a couple...

Too small

Im 5 4 and 148 lbs. I ordered a medium because of the reviews. It was too small..I think I need to get a large or xlarge for comfort. I gave it to my daughter. Nice material

Soft and comfy

This shirt has been great for hiking in the variable conditions in the Sierra-Nevada's this spring. It is lightweight and breathable, and dries quickly. It is soft, comfy, and fits well. It has been great for hiking, biking, running and yoga.

I'm petite, top isn't!

I received this shirt and the shirt sleeve shirt for a gift in the purple color. While I like the fit I find it very see through.

Best Lightweight Layer

I LOVE THIS SHIRT. I needed a longsleeve layer for running when the temperatures start to dip, but it's not cold enough to need a jacket... this is perfect. It's heavy enough that I feel a little protected from wind and general chill, but absolutely light and breathable enough to wear well for miles and miles of high output; I wore this i...

Everything I come to expect

I love the fit of the shirts form Patagonia and the overall quality. This shirt fits true to the size chart. Nice enough to wear to work, shows, the gym, and fishing. Thank you for longer sleeves!

Long Sleeved T-shirt

I am never disappointed with products I have ordered from Patagonia. Purchased my first Patagonia rain coat in 1985. And have ordered or purchase many items sine. Because I am now older and weigh a bit more than I did 30 years ago, I was pleased to find a couple products in sizes XX. Thank you

Comfortable and Versatile

This shirt is perfect for just about anything - hiking, yoga, cycling, casual wear, etc. It's thin and breathable and works comfortably with layers over it. The cut/fit is perfect - scoop neck, hip length, slim but not snug. I'm 5'2" 110lbs, athletic build and XS fits perfectly. Incredibly comfortable.
