We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

Not quite right
I wanted to try this because I have the lighter weight capilene. This one was bigger all around and the cut of the neck was too wide. The only color left was the blue with black stripes, and the color was too dull - I prefer vibrant.
Hi Thea, we’re very sorry about the limited color selection. We should be getting more Capilene® Cool Trail Shirts on September 12th, 2021. The date is subject to change but go ahead and check back with us then.
Fun all-around shirt
Bought this on sale and not in love with the yellow color but wears better than it looks online. The material isn't as soft as I would like but does wick sweat well and keeps my shoulders from burning. Just a tad too big for me, but I'd rather too big than too small, and I think I'm in between sizes on this. Great hiking shirt when y... Read Moreou're a mile closer to the sun in Colorado. I'm 5'6" and 118 lbs with broad shoulders.
I ordered two shirts of the same style and size. One is too small and the other is acceptable.
Hello Karen, thank you for alerting us to the difference in sizing. We typically allow for a 3% variance on sizing but you are certainly welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) the item if the fit does not work out.
Very thin fabric
Great sleeve length and live the curved hem line. However, fabric very thin compared to earlier iterations- almost see through in the chicory red.
Thanks for your feedback, Janet! We've made so many iterations of Capilene fabric, it's tough to say which one you've had in the past. The previous version of this exact style used a 4-ounce fabric and this current product has 4.4-ounce polyester. Sometimes a solid color will be a different weight than a heather color for the same style. If you find the fabric weight to be a dealbreaker for your purposes, please reach out for [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) to return it!
Love this t-shirt! Yes, it keeps you cool but it is also very flattering and forgiving. I have 2 toddlers and am in my late 30's. I do NOT have the bod I used to have. I have a tummy that is obvious that I just cannot get rid of. This t-shirt helps me hide it well. It also shows off your curves and chest in the right way. Not too low cut. Grea... Read Moret to pair up with a sports bra or a push up bra! For reference, I'm 5'7 145lbs 36C, pear shaped. Small fit me great if you like it body hugging and a little loose in the tummy area. Medium was way too loose. Definitely ran large. I am usually a medium, sometimes large in clothes depending on the brand. Good luck!
This shirt is sheer and I was not expecting this at all! I have two from previous season and they were not sheer. Not a total bummer but will be used in a different manner since I can't wear to work casually. Strictly for exercise. I would love to see Patagonia bring back the previous style that's not sheer and/or give options to folks.
Nice, but more sheer than I can wear at work.
I purchased this shirt in the striped purple, but then returned it. It was a little more sheer than I can wear at work for business casual... I know folks had mentioned that before, but I thought maybe getting it in a darker color would help? Nah, it didn't. The neckline was nice... different than some other shirts I have.

Seemed to lack direction and motivation... just kinda hanging there awkwardly. Some other people might like that, but that's not my jam (another reason for my return).
Not for large chests
Once again a company fails to design shirts that fit a female body. Im sure this shirt is great if youre flat chested. Even ordering a size LARGE is too tight across my chest. Youd think clothing designers would get a clue that larger womens sizes means larger in the chest but they just cut everything the same. The fabric is also very thin and see ... Read Morethrough.
Great; perfect fit
I have found that the last few years Patagonia women's stuff sizing is not what it used to be; it often just feels off, and it has been a primary brand I have worn for years and years. This shirt is perfect though. It is cut really well and is actually true to size. I could see buying this shirt in multiple colors if they introduce more colors... Read More in the future. Patagonia - please don't go and tweak with this cut/model in future years - it's perfect as is!
I received this shirt as a gift. I was able to wear it once. I washed it in a delicate cycle with undergarments. It came out if the washer with pulls on the front and a hole. Highly disappointed in the garment.
Thank you for the review on our Capilene Cool Trail Shirt. Sometimes top loading washing machines can be a bit more harsh on our clothes than we realize, so that could be what happened here. This is not something we have heard of being an issue before. Nonetheless, this is not the quality standard we hold our items to and gift or not, the Ironclad Guarantee still stands. To begin a return, please click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
This top shrinks after one wash and the fabric is completely transparent/see-through. Order a size bigger

Makes Me Stink!
Im 51 and 125 lbs. I ordered XS, and the cut is super flattering. I question the longevity of this shirt as it seems to pill easily. And I dont know what it is, but this shirt makes me stink! After a few hours wearing this shirt, I can smell my own armpits, and the smell is embedded in the fabric. This does not happen with any other shirt I own. I ... Read Moreguess my body chemistry is not compatible with this material. And before you ask, yes, I shower daily and wear deodorant ;)
Hey Diana! Thanks for providing this important feedback. You're not alone in this complaint. The Capilene fabric, though advanced in lightweight, moisture-wicking and quick drying properties, synthetic materials do not breathe as well. We'd recommend going with a natural fiber, such as wool, for your next-to-skin needs. You could consider trying out our [Capilene Cool Merino Shirt](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-capilene-cool-merino-shirt/44580.html?dwvar_44580_color=JELY), which is a Merino and Recycled Polyester blend.
Miss the old fabric
The material they used to wear this back in 2019 was really soft. It did pill, but I could overlook that because it was so comfortable and soft, not like typical stiff athletic T-shirts. Unfortunately, last year they switched to a fabric that doesn't pill, but isn't soft and stretchy anymore. I bought several thinking they'd be the s... Read Moreame as the old ones. Kept them, but I never wear the new ones unless all the old ones are dirty. Sadly, I won't be wearing the cool trail shirt anymore, which is super sad because they were by far my favorite shirt.
We're so sorry to hear that you're not a fan of the update in fabric on our Capilene Cool Trail Shirt. Your feedback is valued and will go straight to our design teams. If you'd like to return, you're more than welcome to do so. We'd also like to encourage you to check out our [Worn Wear](https://wornwear.patagonia.com/) website where we sell lightly used gear from past seasons. You might get lucky and find one of the older versions that you love.
100% polyester Not what I expected
I ordered two of these shirts they are 100% polyester (I never would have ordered if Id known this) and both upon arrival have a horrible like sour chemical smell. Even after I washed them twice the smell is still there lingering in the material. I havent worn them and dont plan on since I loath polyester and the smell of these tops. I tried on and...

Poor fabric quality

Need smaller sizes
I found this shirt runs large, especially very baggy around the underarms. I wish Patagonia's sizing were more consistent, since XS jackets fit me perfectly. There are no XXS options for this shirt, which sizes smaller women out. Please make an XXS. I would also love a crew neck option for both the long sleeve and short sleeve Capilene cool tr...

Hello Veena, we're sorry to hear this was too big, especially around the underarms. We are continuously working towards expanding our sizing to accommodate a wider range of body types. Thanks so much for sharing your feedback with us! We've passed it along to the appropriate team.
I bought the blue t-shirt and am back to buy more as the fit is flattering, and I'm pretty picky on fit.

Not Odor Resistant
I bought this shirt for hiking/backpacking and the odor control is a joke. It smells really bad while wearing it, and after only a few wears it now has a permanent funk. I know this can happen with synthetic clothes, but really disappointed it happened so quickly on a higher quality item that boasts odor control (I've also tried washing it wit... Read Moreh baking soda which helps some). That being said, it still gets 3 stars because I do like the fit and material for everyday (material is a little heavy for where I hike in mid-atlantic heat/humidity). I just can't use it for what I bought it for which makes me sad. Hoping I can get the smell to go away and will just have to retire it from athletic pursuits.
Hi Kate, we're really sorry the odor control of your shirt is lacking. Usually washing it with baking soda helps, but since you mentioned you already tried that and it didn't exactly work, you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it under warranty. Feel free to reach out to our Customer Service team if you have any questions.
I like the style of this shirt. Specifically the scoop neck and rounded hem. Length is great. Shoulders are a little tight on me but not enough to go up a size because the body of the shirt would be too big. I dont find the fabric to be as soft as described. Also it is slightly sheer. It does resist odor. I can wear a couple days in a row in hot we... Read Moreather and it stays relatively stink-free. I like the color too- I got blue.
sizes do not work for me
My husband purchased a this t in a store for me in an XL. It was snug in the chest, so I ordered 2 XXL for myself. They had huge neck openings and fell off my shoulders. I really wish patagonia would make a nice XL t that ran a little looser in the chest, so I could enjoy these tops.
Purchased this in a medium for my 5'4" wife, who has worn Patagonia mediums for years, and it was too short. Maybe she has a longer-than-average torso, but I had to return it. Other Patagonia tops in her closet are around 22" from the front of the neck straight down to the bottom; this shirt is just 20". Really like the fabric a...

Hi Andy, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear the the shirt didn't fit your wife quite right. We really appreciate the feedback as it's crucial to improving products for future seasons. We've passed this feedback along to our design crew!
Comfy Shirt (except for tag)
My sister insisted I get this shirt, and she was right, sweat evaporates right off it and keeps me cool. So its a keeper. Except for the tag on the hem, I had to remove it because the hard edges of the tag kept irritating my hand as it would brush against it. So Patagonia, rethink that scratchy tag please.
Pilled up on the backside though
I love my tee and plan to order more! Bought one for a 3 week tour last spring and it was pilled up before the end of the trip! Not sure if it was my backpack or the bus seats, but that was disappointing.
Hi Becky, we're so sorry to hear about the pilling. By their nature, knitted garments are prone to pilling, and this style is no exception. Removing pills can help lengthen the life of your Patagonia sweater, plus it’s easy to do with a sweater stone. Learn about removing pills at [wornwear.com].
I love this shirt, bought the blue & yellow and just ordered 2 more colors. It fits great for us shorter people, the right length, a flattering scoop neck that doesn't go too low, not too flowy but not too tight body. The only issue is that the yellow and is very sheer so you can see my bra through it. I don't mind when I'm hikin... Read Moreg, etc but can't really wear it "in public" like that. Also, I don't see running in this shirt... but love it for what it is. I am 5'2" 120lbs and a 34C and the XS is just right.
Flattering trail-specific shirt
Patagonia did a great job designing the cut of this shirt. It hangs well, and is flattering. I wanted to love this shirt because it felt like a perfect shirt for backpacking - the seams were in good places and not itchy, and it seemed like it breathed well. However, I got one of the summer colors (Star Pink) and it was see through! I was wearing a ... Read MorePatagonia Cross Beta Sports bra in a teal color, and I could see the bra through the shirt! I tried with a lighter color sports bra, and same issue. I returned the product, and will be more careful on the color I choose for this shirt next time. This seems like an odd issue to have - I for one don't but white sports bras because I sweat and then they get discolored. Time for a re-design.
Great for travel
I brought two of these shirts with me for a three week trip to Italy this autumn. I wish I had brought more of these shirts, because they were the quickest drying of all the clothing I brought. I’d wash a shirt in the hotel sink, hang it on my travel line, and by morning, it would be dry. The fabric was soft and pleasing to wear. The one drawback t...

Wife Loves It!! Now, I'm going to go broke buying more...
Got this shirt for my wife, and we were both blown away with how soft this shirt is. She wears it for everything, from hiking to running to lounging. This is an incredibly versatile shirt, and it appears to be quite durable (no nicks or snags from trail running or kids pulling on it). She also loves the fit (longer torso, so don't have to worr...

Got it all right - except durability.
I love love love this shirt. It hangs very nicely - not too big, not too small. It is the softest synthetic fabric I’ve ever felt. I would wear this every day of the week. Works for so many activities. Super excited for the extended sizes. Sleeve length, scoop neck, and drop tail hem all hit exactly where I would expect/prefer. Well done Patagonia.... Read More I’ll deal with the pilling with a sweater stone or other shaver — but that is my biggest concern. It did pill after just a couple wears.
Excellent outdoors shirt
This fabric is thick enough that I don't have to wear an undershirt with it, but lightweight enough to keep me cool on a hot day outside. For being an athletic fabric, it is very soft to the touch. I machine wash and hang dry and has kept in good shape. I'm purchasing another Capilene shirt because I like this one so much.
I was shocked by how quickly these shirts started pilling and looking super old and cheap. After maybe 2 washes in cold water and line dried. This is not what I would expect from Patagonia.
Sorry to hear that the shirt has been a disappointment. You're welcome to [return](https://is.gd/DQq2nw) it to a Patagonia-owned store or send it in for a refund or merchandise credit.
Soft shirt, but pilled
I really love the softness of this shirt and the color, it’s very comfortable & lightweight. I liked the extra length in the back. However, after two washes and following the care instructions & laying flat to dry, the shirt started pilling along both sides.
We're sorry to hear this happened! Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it back to us under warranty and let us know if you have any questions.
Soft and Cool and Ready To Go
These are all great, and I have several colors just because they're perfect for a morning hike, or wearing to the Farmers Market in the afternoon. They look nice for running around town or going out at night. I'm very happy, especially with the new selection of sizes.
This is only the 3rd Patagonia item I've ever owned and it has far exceeded my expectations. I've worn it for long runs in 70+ weather, climbing, hiking, and casually. I was already in love with its breath-ability and quick drying, so today while climbing up a rough chimney-like start - and getting up close and personal with the rock - I ... Read Morecouldn't help but feel protective of my new favorite shirt. I could feel it snagging on the rough rock face that followed the chimney and started wondering if I should ditch the shirt and sacrifice my skin instead but didn't. I assessed the damages once I was finally relying on the ground to keep me safe and the shirt was PERFECT, not a single sign of wear! I wish I could say the same thing about my climbing shoes! I will definitely invest in a couple more of these shirts before the summer is over because it truly will be an investment. Thanks Patagonia for being awesome!
Great design, cute colors
Nice fit, love the scoop neck and the length, so I don't have to worry about bending over and exposing my back or undies! Great casual shirt for hot weather.

Pills horribly and becomes transparent from washing. I bought this in three colors, in April, for a trip to Hawaii.

Not really made for trail running
This shirt is super soft and comfortable but doesn't seem to be made for actual trail running. I've worn it twice with a trail running pack (for maybe 20 miles total) and it's now pilling all over the back and on the front where the chest straps lay. I also brushed up against a tree when I was running and it snagged a string in the a... Read Morerm that's now unraveling.

Love these shirts
Beautiful, light, and perfect for the heat. I do a lot of activities in the heat of Wyoming summer and in the Tropics in the winter - rowing, hiking, wade fishing.. I love capilene because it doesn't show sweat, and wicks nicely. Love the scoop neck. It fits beautifully and the color selection is great!
Nice Everyday Tee in Pretty Colors
I bought the Lavender and Pink in a Small for our vacation and summer. The material is very soft and comfortable.

Great feel and fit
I'm 5'5", 115 lbs and ordered the small. The fit is slimming, but definitely a slightly over sized t-shirt fit.

The material is soft and flowy and seems to hold up great so far against a few washes.
Nice cut, but too long for me
I want to love this shirt- and I do love the scoop neck and the fit of the upper half (I am a pretty consistent Patagonia Medium in tops, dress size 6) but the bottom half...? It's so long.
