Dear Patagonia community,
The COVID-19 pandemic is taking over communities around the world at an astounding rate. While testing availability in the United States is still limited, and so the extent of the virus’s spread is largely unknown, we want to do our part to protect everyone. The safety of our employees and our communities is our top priority, and we are taking responsible precautions to help stop the spread of this scary virus where we can.
We have temporarily closed our stores, offices and other operations in the United States. We have also closed stores and offices in Argentina, Chile, Japan and across Europe. Our Australia and South Korea operations will continue on a modified work schedule in stores and offices, with some stores closed depending on location. Employees who can work from home will do so. All Patagonia employees will continue to receive their regular pay during these closures.
We are working to find solutions to protect the safety of our warehouse team, and we hope to have an update about online orders in the coming weeks. We apologize that over the next two weeks there will be delays on orders and customer-service requests. We ask for your understanding and patience. We will continue to keep you updated with new developments.
We encourage our friends everywhere to take the extra precautions necessary to safeguard their health and that of others. It’s everyone’s responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and your local health authorities are the best resources for updates and answers to questions.
Over the years, as our Patagonia community has been faced with challenges,I have always been inspired by how we emerge stronger and with an even deeper sense of purpose. We will persevere through this challenge, too.
Thank you for your business, loyalty and patience.

Nice shirt but too snug
I just bought a Capilene Cool Trail shirt, intending to use it primarily for hiking. I usually wear size S in Patagonia clothing, but this shirt was very tight in the shoulders and chest (I'm 5'7", 155 lbs). The length at the hem and sleeves was good. I'll have to return it and unfortunately a M will probably be too long. I love... Read More Patagonia clothing, but size inconsistency has been a constant in my 35 years of buying their products. I like the fabric and would recommend it if it fits.
Hi John! We're sorry to hear this ended up being too snug. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it if you were looking to do so, but haven't already. We're also always happy to email you any item's measurements chart so you can feel more confident about your next purchase.
Cool Trail size S Review
Great shirt I’m 5’9 and 150 and the S fit me well. It cuts off just below the waist so if you need to tuck in try going up a size. It’s very soft and will primarily use for travel in place of wool tshirts. I’ve worn for 2 days and no stink yet. For backpacking I would consider something a little thicker for anything other than using this as a base ... Read Morelayer.
Need different fits
This is the best material Patagonia makes. I want a whole stack of t-shirts in this. For some reason they decided to go with only a regular fit in this new version. And I’m always between sizes in the regular fit. All problems would be solved if they would just make two fit options in their active shirts. I’m a large is the slim fit, so this shirt ...

Favorite Shirt I Own
Absolutely love this shirt! Have had one for a few months now and wear it a ton—works as a great shirt for work if you have a more casual dress code. Planning on buying at least one more. Only negative was when I got first got it, I wore it on a hike and noticed a small branch or something had already put a hole in it. Was kind of surprised that it...

And, of course Patagonia made it easy to exchange for a new one. Overall, awesome shirt that fits great.
Great workout and casual shirt
Bought a few of these to take on the road with me. They are great because you can work out in them and then give them a quick rinse and then wear it also as a casual shirt when you're trying to save space in your bag. They can go a few days without developing an odor but I will usually give them a squirt of bronners and rinse them off in a sin...

Hands down my favorite shirt
I ordered one in every color. The shirts are super soft and feel great on your skin. I love to hike in them, lift, run, or wear casually. They keep away the smell really well so it’s easier to take less on extended trips. The red and blue colors are my favorite. I would like to see some additional colors to choose from. I am in these shirts almost ... Read Moreeveryday because they are so comfy. I have been recommending them to my friends and they love them too. I am not a fan of the technical type fabric, so these are perfect for me. The carbon and grey colors are very similar. I’d order a few of these up while you still can! The fit is great. I am a stocky 5’7” man so I have to be careful with the slim fits. They never fit me right, but this shirt has a great loose fit.
The material is very soft.
The material that they used on these shirts are very soft and they fit great. I just ordered their long sleeve ones to try them out since the short sleeve I have is very comfortable. I'm 5"10 and 165lbs and the medium fits well on me. Hopefully they get different colors next season.
I really liked my Capilene daily shirt, so was very excited to wear this one as well. The fabric is very soft and felt comfortable to wear. However, after only a couple of wears, the whole back of the shirt started pilling. After a few more wears, almost the entire shirt was pilling and developed holes.

Hi Ty, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear about the way the shirt has pilled after such little use. You're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) under warranty!
Excellent running and casual shirt
I've been enjoying this shirt and how well it serves multiple purposes. The weight and consistency is like a cotton shirt -- just slightly different to the touch -- and it has better warmth if you're heading out on a cooler day. The normal capilene cool shirts are great but this is a good change of pace and definitely better for casual... Read More wear. An interesting effect of the fabric is the polyester strands subtley reflect in the light. It's been every bit as good as a capilene cool shirt on runs. Though it feels slightly heavier, it breathes just as well and the softness of the fabric feels better.
Perfect T-Shirt - It's Bound to Disappear Now
A perfect shirt from Patagonia. Comfortable fabric, feels great against the skin, doesn't get smelly even after 2 days of sweating repeatedly in it, and it looks great. Use this for running, working out, wearing around the town, and just being a general dirt bag. ONE PROBLEM: Because it is perfect, Patagonia is bound to discontinue it any mi... Read Morenute now! So I'm ordering three more to accompany the ones I already have. I love this shirt! Seriously. I'm on the pro program with this wonderful company, so take my review with a grain of salt. But know that I have had to toss out a few shirts for getting that unwashable nasty stench & there are a number of products from Patagonia that I haven't taken a liking to. This shirt, however... I freaking love it. Weird, I know.
Great shirts but they pilled within weeks
I do really like these shirts and wear them daily on my walk to work so I don't sweat up my work clothes. I carry a backpack and the heat/friction from the backpack has caused these to pill within a few weeks. I actually find this to be pretty common on a lot of the shirts and now a Nano Air jacket I just purchased. It's the nature of the... Read More material I suspect, but really disappointing to see when you spend for quality. Great shirt otherwise. I can wear it all week to and from and work and it doesn't stink. That in itself is worth it. The pilling though brings it down 2 stars.
Hi BC! Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback! We're sorry to hear about the pilling you've experienced. I would recommend using a sweater shaver or sweater stone – these tools will remove the pilling and help your items to look brand new again.
Medium is too Large!
I ordered this shirt in size Medium for my fiance. His numbers were right down the middle of the sizing guide for size Medium. When the shirt arrived it was way way too large! It looks like it's probably nice quality but unfortunately the size just makes it unwearable for him.
Thanks for the feedback on sizing and we are sorry to hear that the medium didn't work out for him. Please feel free to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) that back and we are happy to help process an exchange for a smaller size.
T-shirt softness but color surprise

The right shirt for the right task
I love all of my Patagonia clothing. While I only own a few items they stand up to the tasks I purchased them for. Unfortunately I can not say the same for this trail shirt. Yes it is comfortable and is more casual then my more technical knitted shirts however I did not find the Polygiene tech in this specific item to work very well. After just a 5... Read MoreK the shirt smelled and after drying out did not lose that smell. I'd say I am a moderately sweaty runner and this shirt was not up to the tasks. That being said, I highly recommend Patagonia's Airchaser shirt for a go-to hiking/running performance T. The Airchaser's ability to wick away sweat and eliminate odor is superior to any running shirt I have worn to date.
The incumbent was definitively superior
I like this t-shirt but it’s predecessor, the Trail Nine, was way way better. The fabric of the old one is definitively more resistant: I washed the four pieces I own hundreds of time and they still look brand new, as opposed to the new Cool Trail that is wearing out after just one season.
Love this shirt!
Incredibly comfortable, feels like soft cotton. Fit runs slightly large. I normally wear a women's M shirt and got a Small which was perfect. I have already worn this shirt multiple days in a row backpacking and zero stink. Only con is that after 3-4 washes it has already started to pull. Overall, I will be buying more of these shirts and wan... Read Moret one in every color!
Very comfortable for everyday wear
I switched to wearing noncotton tee shirts many years ago. Discovered all the benefits—they don’t feel clammy when wet and dry much much faster than cotton. Other benefits too—more durable and great for travel when you need to live in the same clothes for days on end. This capilene tee shirt is super soft. It feels like cotton without any of cotton...

Mostly ticks the boxes--runs small
Have bought a couple of these and have own similar kinds of shirts from TheNorthFace, Columbia & Patagonia. The hand is soft and much like a cotton shirt, betraying the light weight and they dry overnight in a well vented area. They do run small---"regular fit" Patagonia gear usually fits me in a Medium although I'm a little big ... Read Morein the shoulders. This only fit me in a Large and they need to change the advertising. One has a little pilling after multiple washes---this seems very common for these kinds of synthetic shirts, although a little disappointing given the premium price.
This shirt is awesome. I’ve taken it hiking and worked with it. It doesn’t smell bad after wearing it and I’ve washed mine a few times, but nothing I can see is destroying it. If anything, probably best to wash it as a delicate and when you dry it, low or no heat. Take care of the shirt and follow the instructions! I will buy more if they go on sal... Read Moree! The sizing a tad bit small. I’m about 38 chest and 69 inches. I bought a small but I might upgrade to a medium next time. I don’t sweat too much!
Fits Like the Old Nine Trails
was bummed when the Nine Trails tee was changed to a slimmer fit but stoked to find this fits and feels like the older version. I’m 6’0” 165lbs with broad shoulders and Large is perfect. haven’t experienced quality issues like others and does not run small. please don’t change a thing Patagonia, will keep buying this t-shirt and tank in new colors....

Love the fabric
I prefer this fabric to some of the lighter ones (it's a bit heavier, but still comfortable and has nice stretch). I haven't seen the deterioration that others have (I have a couple of tanks and a couple of tees). Heather colors look really nice and the fit is solid for me.
Major Durability Issue
The material used for the Capilene Cool Trail shirt is the same as the Nine Trails shirt from 2018. I have multiple Nine Trails shirts and one of the Capilene Cool Trail shirts - all get thinner and thinner with each wash. The material is excellent: Light, breathable, and fast drying. But I will not buy any more of these shirts due to the plastic t... Read Morehat goes down the drain with each wash. I sent one of my old Nine Trails shirts in for repair after a couple holes developed. Patagonia sent it back repaired but it developed new holes within the week. This product should be discontinued. It will end up in a landfill after a few dozen wash cycles and it sheds micro plastic with each and every wash.
We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with the shirt and its durability. Please don't hesitate to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) that back to us under warranty.
Scratchy and uncomfortable.
I'm 5'8" and the fit is fine but the sleeves are just slightly long if you want to show off your muscles. I'm not a fan of the material though. It has a scratchy feel and almost feels rough like wool instead of polyester. I'll be returning these.
We're sorry to hear this shirt didn't work out! Please don't hesitate to reach out to our [Customer Service](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html) team if you have any questions regarding your return.
Every time I wash the shirt it gets thinner and thinner, did some research and learned polyester (which this shirt is made from) is a type of synthetic plastic and with every wash those strands of plastic fiber become detached and enter our water system. Didn't think Patagonia, the clothing champion of the environment, would use plastic to mak... Read Moree their clothes. Won't be buying another one of these shirts or any other polyester, nylon or acrylic item from Patagonia.
Great but runs small
Very nice shirt. Great fabric you'd swear was cotton and typical Patagonia quality of construction. The offset shoulder seams are a bit odd for casual wear but nice for pack straps. However the sizing seems off. I am a comfortable large in most Patagonia clothing and the XL in this is snug on me.
Good shirt, but
I like the shirt, it's soft and it mostly fits well, unlike the technical t-shirts from some other outdoor brands. I'm not sure how much the Polygiene really helps. The shirt still has some of that polyester smell. The sleeves are comically long and big like most of Patagonia's technical t-shirts.
