The shirts have a really
The shirts have a really nice fit with flat seams so there is no rubbing. They are made out of a light weight polyester. They easily hand wash and air dry.

Different Material than other Cap Cool Shirts
I was pleasantly surprised that this is a slightly different material than the other cap cool shirts. It is woven in a way that feels a little thicker but is still extremely breathable for hot days. I use this shirt and the original cap cool for working outdoors and I would recommend this trail version a part of your go-to warm weather work wear. W...

But, you should stick to the original cap cool if you are looking for a river/sun/beach oriented shirt because they feel slightly lighter and are slightly more comfortable while wet.
New fabric clings like a plastic bag
While I'm glad Patagonia uses recycled material, the material used for the latest version of the Cool Trail T clings like the wet plastic bag that it is. Ever have a cheap thin plastic shower curtain cling to your body while showering? It's kind of like that. The size is true, the cut is good, and the guarantee can't be beat. But com... Read Morepared to my 2019 version of the Cool Trail T, this latest model just clings when wet/sweaty. In fact, it even clings to itself when dry and folded! Sadly, this one has to go back and I'll hope that Patagonia switches to a softer, less-clingy fabric in the next iteration.
Hi Michael, thank you for submitting this review. Feedback is very helpful to other customers in making decisions. In addition, our Design Team sees our customer feedback, so the thoughts you're sharing will go to the right place. We're sorry this new fabric wasn't a hit for you, but glad to see you're returning the shirt. Please let us know if we can be of any further help!
It's not like I remember Capilene
I visited Patagonia website recently to order some additional Capilene tee shirts for upcoming travel. I already had a blue Capilene that is now over 10 years old. Remembering how well it worked in hot and cold conditions, keeping me comfortable and dry while also keeping its shape and size through many washings, I decided to order two new Capilene... Read More in M. When the two shirts arrived, I was disappointed with the cotton-like feel, the thinness of the material, and the too-tight fit. The shirts were nothing like my good old Capilene. I worked with Customer service to set up an exchange for the Large size. I received the Large shirts in reasonable time, but my opinion did not change. Patagonia has moved to a different material with its new line of Capilene- and it is nowhere near the quality or appearance of my old favorite. I won't buy any more of these.
Great All-Season MTB Shirt
A great all-season shirt. Has good weight to it for fall and early spring riding, but I've been using it in the North Carolina summers and it's thrived there too. The fit is athletic without being too slim, allowing a lot of airflow when riding which I love. Sweat wicking and breathability are on point. The shirt is much more of a grey co... Read Morelor with a hint of green - it's not as overtly green as it appears online.
Not for people who sweat
Feels great when you put it on, but terrible moisture management. Retains sweat, gets super wet and clingy, and sweat then drains down onto your shorts. Capileine cool daily works better, as do (cheaper) shirts from other companies.
Thank you so much for leaving this review! We are also very sorry to hear that this item did not fully perform the way it should have. Please know you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) an item at any time if it does not function the way it should.
Best damn T ever...
This shirt is absolutely the best type of synthetic T I ever found. Most of the efforts by others to accomplish this seemingly simple task usually either choose the wrong fabric (too hot, doesn't breathe, sticks to skin, etc) or completely screw up the cut or all of the above. I don't know why that is, but I do know I will be after more o... Read Moref these as I currently only have one. Good job.
Unnecessarily changed the design
As said in another review, I've been wearing Patagonia Capilene shirts for at least 15 years. Ever since they changed the naming scheme of these shirts (e.g. Capilene 1, Capilene 2, etc) it's been difficult to parse exactly what each shirt is. This particular Capilene Cool Trail Shirt has been unnecessarily changed from the original des... Read Moreign. The seams are still in the same place but the fabric of the shirt is no longer reminiscent of the Capilene fabric that I'm used to. It's more of a soft heathered cotton feel rather than a sweat-wicking synthetic feel. Also, I've been purchasing XXL sizes from Patagonia for as long as I've been a customer ... the XXL version of this shirt is way shorter than anything else I've ever purchased ... even shorter than regular XL. Maybe someday Patagonia will get back to what they used to do. Maybe supply chain issues are affecting what they can vs. can't manufacture. No hard feelings against the company here but I typically support companies that I can expect consistency from. I'll be looking at other clothing companies for a sweat-wicking synthetic trail shirt because it seems like Patagonia has just gone in a different direction with this one.
Performance wear that feels like cotton
Patagonia Capilene has become my favorite shirt for hiking. The shirt dries and wicks likes a synthetic, but feels like cotton. They are so soft and comfortable that they feel just like cotton, but they wick moisture well and dry quickly. This is also my favorite shirt for travel because you can wash them in a hotel sink, hang them up to dry, and t... Read Morehey will dry overnight. The shirt has managed to keep me cool in both dry and humid climates. Overall just a great performing comfortable shirt. So far I have only purchased the short sleeve version (x4), but I am tempted to buy a long sleeve version as well.
I wear these shirts in the swamps of Florida - SUPER humid and hot. They are very comfortable, very lightweight, and stay as dry as possible in those conditions. When it's 95% humidity nothing wicks well, but this is still much better than cotton. At least towards the end of the day, it will start drying off whereas cotton stays wet, heavy, an... Read Mored nasty the entire time. The only wish I have would be for Patagonia to make these in lighter colors to reflect the sun and heat. Darker colors in Florida's heat just makes you hotter and more miserable.
Do not buy this shirt. Its completely see-through. Thats not an exaggeration. I would attach a photo to prove it if that was an option. I love Patagonia products, so this one was surprising and disappointing. Again, entirely see-through. It's basically a mesh shirt.
We're truly sorry to hear this! We went ahead and reached out to you via email to offer some help with your return. We also passed your thoughts along to our Design Team. Thank you so much for your feedback.
I wore two of these on a two- month road trip, each for a week between washes. Two months of backpacking and sleeping outside with sponge baths and occasional shower. And no stink. No holes. They're very comfortable, soft but durable, and they are as resistant to odor as my merino clothing.
Good fit and comfortable
Overall I like the fit of this shirt and I really appreciate the focus on reducing the environmental impact of making the shirt. The only thing that was different than what I expected is that the shirt is a little less stretchy than I was expecting. Not uncomfortably so. If that is a function of the more sustainable materials used to make it, than ... Read Moreit is certainly worth it. If there was a way to make it a bit stretchier without increasing the environmental impact, I would suggest that.
Identical Colors May Vary
I just received this shirt in Industrial Green and Im disappointed to see that the color is noticeably lighter than my other ones.

Hello Jacqueline, we appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry the shirt did not work out. We do have garment measurements on this end and will be happy to provide neck measurements for reference in the future.
I got two of these shirts as I was tired of sweating through old band t-shirts in hot yoga classes. I went with a size small because product description said regular fit as opposed to slim fit.

Fit Feels A Bit Small
I had an XXL size but lost weight and it became too large so I ordered an XL.

Hi Lowell, we're so sorry to hear about your experience with the Men's Capilene® Cool Trail Shirt. Pilling can be more noticeable on this item. To prevent pilling, we recommend washing that item either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get abraded. To remove pilling that has already occurred, a sweater shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new again. Of course, if you are not pleased with the performance of your Capilene® Cool Trail Shirt, you are absolutely welcome to send it in for a warranty returns evaluation under our Ironclad Guarantee, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
Purchased this shirt to do the Rim to Rim Grand Canyon hike in AZ fully expecting temperatures to reach 105 at the bottom of the canyon.

I also appreciate the torso is slightly long at the back so the shirt doesnt expose your lower back when reaching or bending. It also packs up tightly in your pack. Recommend fully.
Great Fit, Feel. Pilling after 3 Days
Bought these for hiking, as they are Trail shirts. Love the fit, the feel and the colors. But they quickly (3 days each) are pulling on back and around shoulders. Dont seem like a trail shirt. Will probably return.
We're sorry to hear about the lack of durability on this shirt. While all knit fabrics are subject to pilling, it sounds like this is an extreme case and it may be due to the straps and material of the backpack. Your purchase is covered by our [Ironclad Guarantee](https://help.patagonia.com/s/article/Ironclad-Guarantee), so please reach out to our Customer Service team. We'll be happy to help return it under warranty!

Hey William! Thank you so much for taking the time to review this shirt. Due to the jersey like nature of these shirts they are prone to pilling if met with friction such as in a wash with abrasive materials. We recommend you wash these on a delicate cool cycle and hang to dry. All of our gear is covered by our Ironclad Guarantee and you're always welcome to return it if you see fit.
Having been a fan of Patagonia Capilene base layers, I bought one of these, and really enjoyed the feel, and the fit. I'm a Clydsdale, so XL was the right fit.

Hello David, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and for your continued support. We are happy to provide the garment measurements for any additional reference. Please do not hesitate to [contact us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/article/How-do-I-contact-Customer-Service).
Cool & dry, as advertised
This is my second of these T's. So far they've done duty as a primary T for hiking in Bali, Vermont and Montana, and as an under-jersey shirt mountain biking in Vermont. They are light, relatively cool and yet wear well, with no degradation of the first one after a couple of dozen wear-wash cycles. All thumbs up for these.
Great fit, but not made for all activities!
As with all Patagonia the fit and feel are spot on for me. However I used these over a week of 5-7 mile day hikes and had quite a bit of pilling. All located where lumbar pad and wait belt contacted the shirt. So now they are relegated to just hiking and backpacking shirts.
This is the lighter weight Cap t-shirt that came out after the everyday cap shirt. Very breathable and comfortable when active, great for hot humid conditions. In my pov its too thin for everyday wear unless you live in a topic humid heat zone. Good piece of kit.. now if Patty could just improve their zippers I digress.
Pilling like crazy!
After only a few washes, the fabric is already showing significant pilling.
Hi Quyntin, we're bummed to hear this! Unfortunately though, pilling is something that can be common with knit garments. Luckily, there's many products that can leave that shirt good-as-new such as a sweater shaver. Nonetheless, we guarantee all our product and welcome you to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this back.
Perfect multi day shirt
Love these shirts . Got one as a gift and bought another one after my first use, which was hiking in the Grand Canyon. Dry quick, and keep me cool which is perfect for someone like me whos body temp runs hot. Not only great for hiking and climbing but great casual wear as well. Worth buying
Great All-Around Workout Shirt
Super impressed with this shirt--soft and comfortable, breathes well, dries quickly.

Just ordered two of these shirts to add to the few I bought back in 2019.

I would love more earthy tone colors or stripey variations
I love the capilene cool trail shirt so much I actually bought 2 of 'em! While I have a couple of the capilene daily shirts, I prefer the cool trail shirt as, I believe, it has more uses. The thing I love most about this guy is that it is super casual and can be worn like a t-shirt. The Capilene Cool Trail Shirt really is a cool trail shirt!
I used this on a very hot and dry hash run wherein we moved from pavement to trails to creeks. It breathes and wicks well and offers great protection from the sun. I have no complaints and would definitely recommend. Although the large fit me fine (42' chest), I may go with a medium next for a more fitted look.
Pilling Like Crazy
Not the quality I expect from Patagonia. I own and love several Capilene layers, but this shirt is the first I genuinely dislike.

Changed for the worse
Purchased a couple of the prior versions of this shirt and loved them - soft and comfortable. The softness is wearing out due to use (OK with that). So I ordered two new ones.

Capilene Trail v3 improved on v2
Definitely an improvement over the 2nd version of the capilene trail fabric, which has some serious pilling issues. It's not quite the same as the first run, either.

So Far So Good
Patagonias Capilene line is undeniably the best base layer in the game, Thermal, Mid and Air series.

Great All-Around Tee
This is my first Capilene Cool Trail tee after the re-design. The Nine Trails shirt that preceded this was one of my favorite shits: light, breathable, fast drying, and form-fitting cut. The only problem with the Nine Trails Shirt was the durability of the soft ring-spun polyester material. The new Cool Trail shirt is similar and much softer than t... Read Morehe Capilene Daily material but its not quite as soft as the Nine Trails shirt. The fit is also a little looser than the Nine Trails shirt. This version has a longer hem length, slightly longer sleeves and a slightly more relaxed fit but perhaps slight more form-fitting than the Capilene Daily. I know there are a handful of negative reviews on the new cut and material but in my opinion, those are small trade-offs if this proves to be more durable. I had about six of the Nine Trails Shirts and all of them thinned from washing and eventually ended up with numerous holes. The Capilene Daily shirts have been more durable but the fabric isnt as soft as the Nine Trails. This material defiantly strikes a balance between the two in terms of softness. Hopefully it also strikes a balance in terms of durability.

This was not the case with Patagonia products I've bought from other well known retailers. I'm 6, 3" - the large fits very well and is long enough
Redesigned Version is a Bummer
The fabric of the redesigned version of this shirt is a huge disappointment. No longer super soft, wicking and nicely draping; now it's stiff and feels like cheap plastic. The old fabric was so comfy I would wear it as much on the couch as on the trail. The new version, I wouldn't suggest wearing for any reason.
As long as you (1) aren't completely obsessed with the older versions of this shirt and can wrap your head around the fact that this is a different shirt, and (2) you actually have an athletic build, then there's absolutely nothing wrong with this shirt at all.

Not too baggy, not too tight, great length overall and great length on the arms. Neck and arm holes aren't restrictive or tight at all.

It's incredibly soft and light and wicks sweat well; excellent for running in warmer weather. I only wish they had more colors and slightly more interesting colors. The orange is really cool. I'm not gonna run or hike or climb in a black tee shirt though.
Changed for the Worse
I absolutely love my original Capilene Cool Trail Shirts, which led me to buy some more. However, the quality of them has changed dramatically. They are no longer the soft, comfortable shirts that I fell In love with. The material has changed, and I'm very disappointed in this change.

I was so excited to order this T shirt for the summer work and play. But is sounds tiny and suffocating, I have to say, it seems to be a trend. It is getting harder and harder to find MAN clothes.

I was stoked to see the Cool Trail in black this season and ordered it immediately. I have several Cool Trail shirts of the prior model and they are among my favorite shirts. This shirt is basically the complete opposite. The prior version was cut more regular fit which I adjusted for by going with a M rather than my normal L in Patagonia slim fit ...

It has a slimmer fit than the prior model and the lack of breathability is suffocating. If it weren't black and it weren't so bad for the environment to ship a single shirt across the country - this one would be out of my closet. I would be hesitant to wear this for any athletic activity. Buyer beware.

Dont let some of these reviews fool you. Patagonia has changed the fabric of this shirt and it is nothing like the old style. In my opinion, HUGE MISTAKE. The old style was a one of kind shirt in regard to feel and now its gone. I guess someone needed to try and prove their worth by making unnecessary and dumb changes to what was a great and unique...

Hi Daniel! We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with this shirt. Please note that we did not change the fabric of the Capilene Cool Trail Shirt. This shirt used to be called the Nine Trails Shirt and was renamed in Spring 2019, but the fabric remained the same. You may be looking for the Capilene Cool Daily Shirt or the Capilene Cool Lightweight Shirt. Thanks for your review nonetheless!
