Patagonia Men's Capilene® Cool Trail Tank

True To Size
August 3, 2022

Welcome to the Gun Show

I don't normally wear tank tops, so it was a gamble when I bought this. But once you let the guns out, it's hard to put them back in. I now have this in every color.

July 22, 2022

durable, non-stink, indestructible

I own 5 of them. I tore my expensive (non patagonia) mountain bike shirts and switched to these. I use them for indoor workouts, yoga, mtb, hiking, running, etc. The DO NOT SMELL. None. neither good or bad. void of scent. Just what we need. Highly durable, holding form without being restrictive. 100% perfect

Too small

I love capilene products. They are wonderful in the heat, great sun protection and wick very well. They seem to be smell resistant too. I can wear them for a couple days on a hot trail and not smell any bad body odors. This product though was very small. Im a lean guy too. Athletic build 180 lbs and 5 foot 10 inches. When I raise my arms my belly s... Read Morehows. Put a pack on and my pack rubs on my bare lower back. Definitely size up.

Cool summer tank

The Patagonia capilene tank is my favorite summertime shirt. Its super comfy under my dress shirt for work and while running in the summer.

July 2, 2022

Overall good

the shirt was a bit small. I was a medium in the other pata tanks I bought that were casual and made of cotton, but for some reason this tank is a bit tight.

July 2, 2022

Super Comfortable

I am 6 foot, 200 lbs. and I wear a large in other Capilene tees. I really like this tank and it IS comfortable, but for some reason it is shorter in the torso than the sleeveless and short sleeve tees.

May 23, 2022

Great Fit

Great fit I like the cut around the shoulders overall very happy.

May 18, 2022

Good fit and cool

The tanks are super soft and cool. Theyre perfect for this time of year.

May 16, 2022

Of two minds

I wanted to love this but have settled on really liking it. I really like it when I need an undershirt that truly wicks moisture. Its great in the most basic sense but it falls short as a running singlet. Please make a race-day-ready singlet with the Cap Cool Lightweight fabric (or whatevers the lightest) so I can stop cutting the tees to make tank... Read Mores.

My favorite tank

Im 6,145lbs, slim. Size small is perfectly form fitting to my body. Im not a fan of some of Patagonias other synthetic fabric but I love this. Great feel.

April 25, 2022

Very comfortable

Patagonia Men's Capilene® Cool Trail Tank is super comfy. The tag is really scratchy. I removed it right away because it was not so comfy.

March 15, 2022

perfect fit.

Fabric is warn but breathes, it allows me to go with one less layer, usually.

March 1, 2022

Comfy material

This material is great - soft, doesn't hold odor (at least in my month or so of using it to work out in), and looks great. Highly recommend.

February 23, 2022


As is typical, well-made and comfortable. Great to sleep in if you like your shoulders free.

February 18, 2021

This thing is great

Great feel, great fit, good cut, nice and lightweight. Id get more for sure.

December 8, 2020

Not very durable

I have had this tank for a few months and with just moderate use it looks like an old college tshirt - significant pilling and a very worn in look. The fit is as expected and it does an ok job of wicking sweat, but really disappointed with the quality.

November 6, 2020

Great tank for running

These are so light you barely notice them. This is a big plus in hot and humid weather. Would absolutely buy again.

September 18, 2020

Sweaty discomfort

The way it clings to sweaty skin is just not what I want for biking and working out.

September 12, 2020

So light...

Im a fairly slim 155lbs, 5 10 and originally got the M size it was comfortable but looked baggy on me. I swapped it for a S and this one fits perfectly. Fabric is very light/breathable and ideal for warm-weather/ climate.

Not Great for Florida Summer Running

This is not a great tank for running. Here in the Tampa humidity it's way too heavy for summer running. It may be better for subtropical winter, so these tanks are going to the bottom of the drawer for now.

Perfect slight covering.

Fits perfectly and very comfortable. Might even wear it for sleeping on cool nights.

September 7, 2020


I don't have irritation from many shirts and I wear some cheap shirts to run in. I get some irritating from this one for the first mile and a half. Once the shirt is wet, Im fine. Vents nicely. Not happy with it but will continue to use it. Love Patagonia.

Capilene Cool Trail Tank

I wear tank tops while exercising in a gym or running outside. They generally run a little long - I don't like to sit on the shirt when I sit down. Otherwise a great shirt. I would buy again.

September 5, 2020

Great fit and length

Shirts tend to run short for me as I'm tall and thin (6'5", 170lb). This one has a great fit and length for me, and wicks sweat well during intense workouts.

September 5, 2020

Soft & Breathable

I'm usually working out in this thing because it's a great fit for movement, is really breathable (like you can kinda see through the fabric when you hold it up to the light) and is crazy soft (like your childhood test bear soft). I'm usually working up a sweat (sweat like rain really, totally dripping and soaked) and this actually d... Read Moreries pretty quickly afterward no matter how soaked it is. I also use it on the water (beach, boat, lake, river) for pretty much all the same reasons. I haven't put any friction to it like with rocks or docks or anything but it feels like it would hold up well without a lot of fraying or pilling. I also wear it around the house because it's made comfy and I like that kinda thing, like athleisure. But it's a little more ath than leisure. Great product.

Versatile Warm Weather Layer

Fit is excellent. The softness of this shirt is very comfortable which I prefer to a more nylon-like feel. In fact, the comfort factor was my major reason for buying this shirt. Works well as a base layer under a cycling shirt when needed.

September 3, 2020

Fits Small

I was excited to introduce this into my warm weather running wardrobe but the fit isn't right for me. I found the fit to be more slimmer and longer than expected. In general I fid Patagonia's clothing to be all over the place. Running shorts are too baggy, jackets too narrow at the hips, etc. Which is such a bummer because I love what the... Read More company stands for and the quality of the product.

September 3, 2020

Excellent workout tank

I use this for my strength-building workouts and its far superior to the other athletic brands out there. It is well made, has a nice fit and is made of very comfortable material. Excellent!

September 2, 2020

Not bad, not great

Picked up a couple on sale for warm weather runs. They suit the purpose. I agree with a few of the comments from other reviewers that it would be better if the material was a bit lighter and that it is a tad long (I am 5'9") - but not too long to make it unusable. Happy to keep them.

September 2, 2020

did not care for the fit

Should straps are pared way back and show a lot of skin on the chest, kind of like a men's sleeveless undershirt. Can't go out in public with this style :)

Reliable Singlet

In a singlet, I look for fit and coolness. This delivers on both. Though I am oddly between Patagonia's S and M sizes typically, this S fit well. But it was more snug on me than most singlets, so the fact that it still manages to be cool is telling. The material is light and breathable. (It is not petroleum-free; but 100% recycled polyester is... Read More strong.) Finally, I love the simplicity of the design - lack of loud branding and a solid pattern. I now have three and recommend them if you're looking for a reliable singlet.

August 23, 2020


Great tank top! I got them in every possible color. All of them true to size and feels great. I used them for the gym, running, hiking, climbing and as an undershirt. Quality is great, just like any other Patagonia product. I wish there were more than 5 colors

August 15, 2020

Great fit - go to casual tank

Best fitting tank Ive owned. Matches perfect with my baggies naturals shorts. Dont stop making this or the shorts!

August 15, 2020

Totally agree this should be Air Chaser fabric tank

July 2020 reviewer stated what I think is the obvious. A running tank should be as light as it can be. I have an Air Chaser (or predecessor fabric) t-shirt and tank. I LOVE them. The tank is my go to shirt for long runs +10 miles because it doesn't chafe. At the start of the Spring 2020 season, I reached out to Patagonia about the availabili... Read Morety of an Air Chaser tank. I was sad to learn it wasn't available this year. Based on these reviews, there is demand to bring back an Air Chaser tank!

July 8, 2020

Why not lighter?

As much as I wanted to love this tank on warm runs, Im baffled why the only option offered features the heaviest iteration of the Cap Cool fabric. A tank/singlet is my preferred option for warm weather running but unfortunately this fabric just doesnt feel right. The most minimal shirt should feature the most minimal fabric IMO. My dream would be t... Read Moreo see an Air Chaser singlet

Love 'em!

As a man of a certain age, I've taken to wearing tanks as undershirts as the law requires. In the Cool Trail tank I stay cool in the heat and have a nice warming layer when things get chilly. I find the fit true to size, if not on the slim side, which is exactly what I want from a base layer. The color choices are perfect for me as I only wear... Read More demure grays all the time anyway. These tanks have replaced my beloved silkweight tees and I'm better for it.

August 15, 2019

Never leave home without it

Love the super-light weight. It is ideal for standing up to torrential rain in tropical weather and works great for active adventures in colder, temperate climates.

August 13, 2019

Good for everything besides Running

Pros: Fits well, initially feels soft, lightweight, very good odor control. Cons: Itchy fabric There is something in the fabric that sticks out like little hairs. I can see them with my bare eyes. They grab the skin and make this shirt incredibly itchy. I've been trying to wear it with a running vest which only made it worse. I think it would... Read More be okay for something more casual. Unfortunately this tank is going back to Patagonia. I am 5'10 - 160lbs and the size Medium fit me very well.

Great T-Shirt

I love this shirt! Soft, comfortable and fits nicely (loose). I am glad I ordered a small.

Great Shirt!!!

Wish they had more colors!!

June 14, 2019

Oh, so very soft!

Bought this on a whim for a workout tank and it's so, so soft! I'm going to have to buy at least one t-shirt in the same material. If I had one quibble - it's a regular fit tank, which means it'll slide around a bit in a workout. I'd love to see an athletic cut with a slightly narrower neck opening and a larger y-style in ...

Great quality, wish there was a second design

The fabric is soft, comfortable, and yet grippy enough that the tank holds onto my torso when doing handstands or other inversions (rather than falling over my face). This fits well, and the stitching seems very well done. I wish there was a second version with a crew neck. For those moments when I am going to be sweaty, but I don’t really want t...
