Nice But....

I bought the XLG so it would be lose around the hip but it was to big under the arms for me and it gaps. Nice material and I like the style of the tank.

We appreciate your feedback on the fit, style and fabric and we're sorry this one didn't work for you. Depending on whether you're looking for casual or more technical usage, we'd like to recommend you take a look at our [Women's Tanks]( like the regular fit Capilene Cool Daily Tank or slim fit Side Current Tank. Please contact our Customer Service team if you have any questions. We'll be happy to help!

So comfortable

This tank fits perfectly! It is a little tighter on the top half, which I like. If you have a bigger chest, I would recommend sizing up. Love the quality of the fabric and it is very flattering!

May 2, 2023

Perfect Every Day

I absolutely LOVE this tank! The material is quick drying which is very important especially because Im often on the water kayaking. The material doesnt have much stretch but I like that because it allows for a looser fit. It IS semi sheer but not by much. Ive noticed the material does pill a little in high friction areas (ex: armpits) but can be e... Read Moreasily cleaned up. Fabric also maintains its shape. (I always hang dry most of my clothes). Definitely a staple in my wardrobe, I never go anywhere without a few packed. Would LOVE if it came in more neutral colors like Grey, black, or even a mocha color. Highly recommend this Tank!

Not the same as past designs

I bought these same tank tops one or two seasons ago and the fit has changed. They are 100% polyester and it feels different from my current ones. Sadly I don't have those tags anymore to see what changed. The fit seems slightly bigger than my current ones too. I love the neck line of these tank tops and am sad that something has changed.

Response from Patagonia
April 29, 2023

We're sorry to hear that this design has been disappointing. In Spring 2020 there was a slight change in the fabric weight, but not the cut of the tank. We welcome a [return](, so please don't hesitate to visit our Patagonia-owned retail store in your area or contact our Customer Service team. The store staff may also be able to identify those older tanks you have and find a better match. Thanks for your review, Katherine!

love the Capilene trail material

i want to give this more stars because i do love throw material and the shirt. the teal and lighter red colors (ones on sale) are a bit see-through. the armpit area is weirdly wider than the rest of the shirt, so when you lift your arms up, theres extra fabric that sticks out around the armpit, makes it look weird. otherwise, keep arms down and the...

Cute but weird fit

Most of the tank is super cute but the neck is fairly "swooped" so it sits oddly wide on my shoulders. Still super comfy and lightweight but it looks a little funny

December 29, 2022

Kinda Tight

Was to small and tight. Maybe good for running or jumping when you need that extra support

December 4, 2022


Somewhat see through, very soft but clingy material, a little odd fit on the sides.

November 17, 2022

Best tank ever!

This really is the best tank ever. The fit is perfect for me: it is long enough to cover but short enough that it is not awkward to wear untucked. It is one of the few tanks that does not "gap" in the armpits for me. I wear this tank for everything! In the summer, I wear it because it is cool and flowy and in the winter I wear it as an ex...

Wonderful tank top

I have about four of these in assorted colors. These are a go-to tank for summer exercise. Fantastic material, very breathable and forgiving in sweaty North Carolina summers. Super easy to care for.

Perfect summer tank

Fits great, stays cool in hot weather, easy to wear.

September 7, 2022

Very comfortable and fitting!

I have this shirt in multiple colors because it's very comfortable and fits great. Lightweight and great for all outdoor activities.

Súper cute workout tank!

This tank is perfect for running, hiking or even wearing out and about. Super cute fit and the green color is beautiful! And great cool fabric too!

Perfect Fit and Comfort

Love this top for workouts, walking around, or simply lounging.

So Comfy

Over the summer I've been replacing my worn-out running tops with new ones and this one is at the top of my rotation. It's comfortable, lightweight, and flattering.

Quality product

Love this top! Fit is flattering and comfortable without being snug. I wear it to yoga, hiking and school with a cardigan. I now own two!

Comfortable, well made, great designed tank

Perfect tank for hot weather, its sweat wicking but soft. I love the higher neck fit, it drapes beautifully and looks great on.

Best lightweight tank

This tank is so lightweight its my go to choice for a hot day. I love this tank!

June 29, 2022

Perfect for all activities.

I own these in 3 colors and I wear them every opportunity I get. I have essentially replaced all other tanks with these- they fit great, move great, look great and can be used for biking, causal wear and anything in between.

Weird Armpits

I loved everything about this tank except for the weird extra fabric under the armpits. It stuck out so much that I had to return the tank. It was so oddly noticeable.

Workhorse tank

This has become my go-to tank! Great for casual wear or putting in miles in the mountains.

April 6, 2022

Great tank!

Amazing tank fabric. Super flattering. Fun rosy color. A sporty bra works well under it. Don't throw it in the dryer (my partner did on accident, shrunk slightly). I wear at work with clients, but could be a workout, hike, or yoga shirt easily.

March 29, 2022


I love these tanks ! I have multiple colors. They are so light and comfy. They wick sweat and dry super fast. Wether youre at the crag or hanging in town youll look good and feel good in these tanks.

March 20, 2022

comfortable fit

I am 5'3" 115 lbs and have narrow shoulders/back. This top is very comfortable and has room to breathe in an XS.

Great tank!

This is the 3rd color of this style tank I've purchased and love it! I prefer the higher neck with cut in arms so my squishy bits aren't getting pinched by the armholes.

Bought a size up so it wouldn't be too form-fitting. I wear it to yoga.

January 30, 2022

The best tank!

I already had three of these, but when I saw this colour, I had to get another. They are perfect for summer, with perfect coverage and a great fit. They are also perfect for layering in the winter.

January 3, 2022


Flowy and comfortable. A little see through but it's not enough to bother me at all.

November 25, 2021


I have like 5 of these. Im a hiking guide in the Grand Canyon and this is my go-to shirt. Cool and comfortable and I get 3 days wear out of them on a backpack.

November 25, 2021

Super cute

Flattering and airily comfortable. Great alone or under a layer. I would say it runs a tiny bit large but kept the medium anyway.

Cutest tank ever

Cute detailing, sculptured fit, super cute lightweight summer top or layered cool weather tank. Love it

This is my favorite active tank. I use it for everything from field work, to biking, to hiking, to yoga, to rafting, to just a casual hot summer day out.

Do it all classy racerback

Like these so much I have 4 colors. Length is great for my long torse and the sidecut is more flattering than I've experienced before on my build.

September 3, 2021

Feminine and functional

This tank has a nice shape and air dries very fast after rolling in a towel to remove excess water. It gaps a little under the arm so if you are less full busted that part looks less elegant when worn as casual wear. Need more delicious colors.

September 2, 2021

Versatile tank

I love these tanks. I own three now and I love that I can use them for both every day wear and also active wear. I havent run in mine yet, but I think it would be comfortable for that as well. Washes well on delicate cycle and hang dry. My new fave tank!

September 1, 2021

See through

I have another color in this same style in size large, and it was a tad big (my standard size in just about everything Patagonia is large), so bought a medium and fits perfectly.

Great Quality

The quality, fit, style, and feel of the shirt on my skin is nothing less than I expect from Patagonia. After I ordered one and saw how nice it was, I ordered 2 more colors.

Love this too!!!

The fabric is amazing and the fit/style perfect for me. Great for fishing, canoeing, hiking

My new favorite shirts

I love the flattering cut of this tank top. Its a busty yet fit person a medium fits just right! It has great coverage across the front preventing that weird armpit skin pinch. And its lightweight quality material I keeps you cool. Whether Im riding my mountain bike or going to the office this shirt is great! I highly recommend!

Super cool and comfortable. The large is too big for me but I like loose clothing. Great looking topI have several.

I love these.

I bought 2 colors and they're always in the laundry becuase I wear them every time their clean. I would say that they run a little large.

I love these tank tops, I have them in three colors! I love the fabric, drape and design. perfect for all the hot weather we've had!

Great shirt

This is light weight and very comfortable on the body. It lays nicely and I love this shirt so much I got a second one!

July 14, 2021

Comfortable tank

I normally wear a 4-6 top (53, 115#), so ordered a small initially. It was too big but the XS I exchanged it for fit perfectly! Its very comfy and hasnt lost shape when soaked with my high humidity sweat when running. Love the color too!

July 12, 2021

Great top!

Just wore this hiking the narrows and it was perfect. Quick dry and cool and comfortable. True to size. So glad I got this.

July 7, 2021

Awesome tank top!

I am 5'5",122lbs and have a smaller chest. I have two of these tanks in size small. They are a little big, especially in the armpit. This time I ordered a xs. It is perfect. Still loose but the arm holes fit well. I love the fabric and the colors. Thanks Patagonia!

Great top

Fit is really nice, the light purple is slightly sheer, top is very comfortable and lightweight for outdoor and indoor adventures alike. Dries super quick!

June 30, 2021

Fits Large, Especially Under the Armpits

I'm not a fan of this shirt. Unfortunately, it is huge on the top. This could be because I don't have a large chest, but it sags quite a bit under the armpits and causes chaffing.

Hi Sarah, thank you for providing that feedback on the fit. We are sorry to hear this has caused you some discomfort and welcome you to [send]( this back to us .

LOVE! I wish it came in more colors

I have this shirt in 4 colors because it is so comfortable and cool! I collect sweat under my pack when riding or running, but it dries quickly. It is also really breathable so I never have the feeling that I need to GET OUT OF IT when it is hot like some shirts have. Please don't stop making these!

Great Activewear top

Bought this in three colors after I bought the first. Super comfortable, great fit. Good for cardio, weights and casual wear.

There's plenty of arm pit space in this shirt. Which I love. It's my new most comfortable tank.

Great cut & fit!

Love this! Finally a flattering yet useable/wearable tank. Great material, neutral lovely colors.

June 20, 2021

Nice Sturdy Tank

I ordered the green in size Small and it's a bit wide--the part under my arms sticks out. I'm going to try an XS. This is a little loose which is great for movement. The fabric is very lightweight but feels sturdy at the same time.

June 17, 2021

Perfect weight

Love this racerback top! Lightweight like a linen but it doesnt wrinkle. Wore it for a hot, humid camping trip and it was perfect. Theres enough room to cover my stomach and the coverage of the backside is great. I didnt have to keep tugging at it to keep it down. I already ordered a different color!

June 16, 2021


This shirt is sheer so, for me, strictly for exercise. It would be nice if Patagonia made this in a non-sheer option as well. It would give more versatility to the shirt for the price.

May 10, 2021

Great fitting tank

This is a great fitting tank! Wow, I love the back design for mobility, and it does not droop down in the front to keep you covered when you are doing strenuous activities. It is light but durable material. I plan to buy multiple pairs, I believe this is my new favorite shirt.

May 9, 2021

I bought 3 because this is my summer uniform

Perfect little tank with flattering cute pleat in the back. Fabric is a little thin for general wear but ok if you don't mind seeing sports bra underneath some of the lighter colors. The sides are shaped with a hip curve so coverage lacks on the sides with my long torso but I use to that.

May 3, 2021

Cute top

Awesome for warm weather

I love this top for hot Texas weather outside. It fits me well but Im smaller up top so I imagine a larger bust may want to size up. Hits at hip, which I like. Would love more colors.

A nice basic blue tank for everyday. FYI, slightly see through especially w/ dark colored sport bras. I mostly wear it under my scrub top which is nice on hot days.

They changed the fabric, not as soft anymore

I bought this top a year ago and love it so much, I bought a couple colors and wear them all the time. I wore them almost every day last summer.

I liked them so much I went back last month and ordered a couple more (the tank version as well as the short sleeve version). Was very disappointed. The fabric now is not nearly as soft.

Fabulous fit

Love this tank! I wear it to work out in at least once a week. Quality material and fits true to size.

January 18, 2021

Functional and Pretty

The fit and drape of this top are form flattering: neither tight nor baggy. I've worn it for yoga and plan to layer it for hiking and camping. The melon color is pretty. If it keeps its shape after a few washings I will likely order another color.

November 18, 2020

Very Versatile

Love these tanks! Great on their own or as a base layer.

October 26, 2020

Great all purpose top

I loved this tank top so much I immediately bought another color. Its long and loose enough where it doesn't ride up when exercising. I bought it for summer use but its been perfect this fall for layering. I have a bigger chest (DD) so I ordered a large to accommodate and it fits great.

Just Lovely!

His tank top is a perfect multi use product. The fabric drapes nicely. The fit is just form fitting enough to create a smooth silhouette yet not tight. Works great as an under layer and matches very well with the straps on the Barely There Bra.

September 15, 2020

So Comfortable

This is my second tank, and I love it as much as the first one I purchased. These are so comfortable. Compared to other XS, this seems just a litte bit big on me (105 lbs and 5'4). Nothing too big that would make me send it back.

Great tank but why does everything come wrapped in plastic?

Tank fits great and true to size but WHY IS EVERYTHING WRAPPED IN PLASTIC????? I won't be ordering from Patagonia again until this changes.

Probably my all time favorite tank for casual dressed up or down and for layering under button-ups for work and play. Ordered a Small and it fits perfect, only wish there were more colors to buy up... I have 6 of them. :) 5'8" / 130lbs / Small

Great Material, But Odd Fit

The tank is the softest and I wanted to like it, but the underarms were baggy and loose and ordering a smaller size wouldn't fix it. It's just the cut. Maybe if you have a bigger chest this tank would be good for you.

I bought the blue and green ones. They fit nicely and comfortably. The armpit part is a little awkward because its looser but its not anywhere near being a deal breaker. My biggest complaint would be that sweat shows through the shirts pretty quickly. Otherwise I like these shirts!

armpits pooched out

I love the T-shirts in this line, and I wanted to love the tank. The fabric is awesome: light, soft, and quick-dry. But the tank's arm-holes flapped out off my chest in the weirdest way. Couldn't keep it.

Purple tank is sheer

Love this tank in peach and navy. However the purple was so light and sheer you could see everything underneath, had to return. Go darker for the color for the best quality.

Got pilly after just a few washes

I've only had it for a few months and have maybe washed it five times, and it's already pill-y. I wouldn't buy it again nor would I recommend it.

Odd Underarm Fit

I generally like the feel of this shirt...unfortunately the shirt puffs out in the underarm area. I'm a slim-waist, larger busted woman, so I got the medium to ensure it didn't fit too snuggly under my armpits...but it bulges out oddly. But looks aside, it functions as described. I just wish it fit better!

A closet staple

I love this tank so much that I now own in 4 different colors. I have two from last season, and waiting for my new two to arrive. It is hard to find a tank that is cut like this. One of my pet peeves is a tight tank with fabric form fitting against my stomach. This tank has the perfect amount of flow, but is perfectly flattering and not too loose... Read More. I climb, bike, hike, yoga, run, grab a beer in this tank. The top cut is great too. If this tank ever discontinues, I might cry. On a technical side, the shirt is so light so it packs down easy, but it also dries fast if you sweat or get it wet. This tank comes with me on every single climbing trip. The ONE downside, is that this tank pills, like a lot. But I love the tank so much that i don't really mind. Too many good things seem to cancel out the one bad thing. It doesn't affect the performance at all.

Odd Fit in Chest Around Arm Pits

As previous reviews have stated, the tank has nice lines that fit everywhere but around the arm pit/chest. I am a 34C and there was extra fabric by the armpits that stuck out funny. It's as if the back was tapered in enough. I am a tried and true S in Patagonia, and am nervous that an XS will be too snug everywhere else. Not sure how to make t...

Thin, transparent material

The tank is see through, will require doubling up another tank underneath to avoid being completely see through.

Love love!

This tank is soft and comfy! I love the teal color! I ended up buying a second tank top because I liked it so much! It keeps you cool, dries quickly, and is soft on the skin. Wish it came in more colors though!

Capilene Cool Trail Tank

Fits very well.

November 11, 2019

Yes please

Super soft against the skin, side profile is flattering. Have a few of these now, and they are my favorite tanks.

Love It But Conflicted

I can't say enough how much I love this shirt. It dries so quickly, and it is super soft. I loved taking it hiking / backpacking HOWEVER it pilled so quickly after just a few uses. I washed my capilene cool trail shirts separately in their own garment bags on the delicate style and hung dry, but they still pilled!! I think I'm just going ... Read Moreto hand wash from now on, which is disappointing, but I really enjoy the fabric. I will not wear them backpacking anymore since friction from my pack increased the pilling on the back. It truly is a bummer since I backpacked with this in a downpour and it would wick / dry incredibly quickly. It would literally dry while hiking in the rain at 100% humidity - how incredible is that!? I love the capilene cool daily and capilene lightweight versions of this tank, but the lightweight snags on my pack, too. This particular version of the tank was great for backpacking due to its long torso... it would stay in place under the hipbelt and straps! Sadly, I don't want to prematurely ruin the shirt with my pack. I guess the pilling really is just esthetic, though. Ultimately, I will stick to this particular shirt for day hikes with an ultralight pack, the capilene cool lightweight is best for running / workouts, and the capilene cool daily for backpacking as it doesn't snag (I wish it had a longer torso like the trail version, though). The cut of this shirt is so flattering as I love shirts with long torsos! If the pilling didn't occur so easily, this would be 5 stars!

So in love with this

I bought 2 tops in different colors for the summer adventures of rock climbing and backpacking. Loved it so much that I couldn't resist in getting a third. I purchased XS (108#, 32C) in peach and in teal. I was concerned about the arm pit as some tops have arm holes too big and baggy for my preference. This was not an issue much to my delight.... Read More Peach is a bit more see through compared to the teal. It layers perfectly under a sun shirt or hoodie while climbing/climbing outdoors for 3 days. Wicks well, kept me cool and no stink! Great fit and flow for indoor climbs and trail running.

September 24, 2019

I love the fit of

I love the fit of this tank, it works great with the barely bra which I own a couple of. This is great for heavy workouts in warm weather, is super lightweight and soft, and dries fast. I wear them to the gym, biking, and hiking. I could probably wear them more out and about but the lighter colors are a bit see thru if that bothers you.

September 21, 2019

Love the material, it is

Love the material, it is very comfortable and light. I wore it hiking and even with a backpack on it didn't get icky sweaty.

Fits and works like it’s supposed to but develops pilling after a few washes.

Response from Patagonia
September 25, 2019

I'm sorry to here the tank is pilling. For this particular tank we recommend to machine wash warm, do not bleach, tumble dry on low, cool iron, and not to use fabric softeners. It also might help not to wash the tank with fabrics that could potentially damage the tank such as denims or towels. You can also try a sweater stone to remove any unwanted pilling. If you aren't satisfied you are also more than welcome to set up a return [here](

Nice shirt, just didn't fit me

I ordered 2 of these tanks and unfortunately had to return both. They fit everywhere but were too big around the chest. I am a 34C and there was extra fabric by the armpits that stuck out funny. The length and fabric were nice and how they fit around my hips was great. I am a solid S and that's the size I ordered. I think an XS would have been... Read More too tight everywhere else.

September 5, 2019

One of my favorite

Love the look, fit and feel of this tank!

September 3, 2019

Comfortable easy to wear

I took my usual XS, 5' 4", 120 pounds, and fits well. I did return as I didn't like the color but plan to repurchase in a different color. Soft material and it doesn't hug your body closely, which will be good on a hot day, but still flattering fit.

September 2, 2019

Love this tank

I have two and they are great for hiking and working out. I am usually a small or medium depending on the cut and I am a small for this tank

August 30, 2019

awesome tank!

I love this product. I was a little worried about sizing, but I got a small and it works just fine. I am 5'6", 135 lbs. Like others have mentioned, there is a bit of a gap in the underarm area, but should not be an issue if you're wearing a sports bra. Lovely color and it's soft as heck!

August 25, 2019

fun run!

Love this tank. It is actually the third in my collection at this point as I am trying to transition out some old running stuffs. Living in Florida, running here in the summers can be pretty disgusting. This tank handles all my sweat and stink and still looks nice, and best yet, doesn't retain all that stink so is ready to go for the next run ... Read Moreafter a quick wash! I will say, that for super hot FL days this tank can verge on the heavy side, but that is where the Capilene Cool Lightweight Tank comes in. Super light and equally awesome!

August 22, 2019

Great tank!

Soft material, washes well, holds the shape. Runs a bit large, the first one I ordered were too big in the arm holes. Great colors!

August 21, 2019

Super cute and versatile

The material is very soft and comfy. The cut is perfect so it goes well with both sports shorts and denim shorts. I'm 110 pounds and xs fits me perfectly

August 15, 2019


Poorly cut, ill fitting and too thin material. Definitely would not recommend.

This shirt is cut well and pretty comfy, but I din't get any sort of "wicking" from it. I like the cotton feel, though! It's pretty lightweight but it shows sweat and does not dry quickly. If you are looking for quick dry, look to the capilene cool daily shirt.

August 10, 2019

Very satisfied

The material is different but I like it. Love the way it hangs on my body and the fit is fantastic

August 10, 2019

Lovely tank top

I love this top for Barre3 class! It keeps me cool while looking good. Loved it so much I bought another color. I get lots of compliments whenever I wear it. Highly recommend!!

June 28, 2019

My Favorite Tank, Ever!

I want more colors!!! I like my tank tops to be a little flowy, i really don't like stretchy tanks tight against my stomach. But that tends to mean that the flowy tanks are super cute but not functional. This tank is the perfect solution! Cute, flattering AND functional! And the fit is just right. I climb both inside and out in this tank, and ... Read MoreI wear it out sometimes. I am 5'4 - 160 and I wear a medium.

June 26, 2019

Just right

I was looking for a light, airy tank for summer trail running and track workouts. The x-small was a perfect fit for my athletic frame: 5’4, 120 lbs. It’s not too loose or tight and doesn’t hang down low, so I can pair it with shorts that have a 2.5” inseam. The navy is a pretty heathered blue.

June 24, 2019

Gorgeous tank

I would own a hundred of these, but two will last me a long time, so I guess that will do. Flowy and breathable, but with a solid fit around the top that doesn't budge during activities. Lovely colors (I got the Mako Blue and Classic Navy) and they fit perfectly over the Barely Bra, without showing any straps. Highly recommend. I'm 5&#x27... Read More;8" and 130lbs, the small is just right.

May 18, 2019

Love this tank

Perfect - Fits nicely and not tight around the waist but also doesn't feel baggy. I wear for crossfit and running.

May 9, 2019

Just what I expected

Love the fit of this tank, it does gap just a bit under the arms but it’s totally not noticeable unless you’re pointing it out. Lightweight, color was exactly what I wanted and the neckline makes it feel like more than just a regular tank top. Can’t wait to wear this hiking in Colombia!

May 5, 2019

Glad I did

So, I was really reluctant to purchase this product. Not that I didn't think it'd be great... but it is a fair amount of $$ for a little bit of material. But, I was going to be in SE Asia (read hot an humid) for work and needed a top that was going to look nice, wear well, travel easily, and not look gross when things started getting swea... Read Morety... day after day of not washing. And well, this top exceeded in all expectations. I would recommend and most likely buy another one if I was going back again for longer... but the beauty of the product is that you shouldn't need tons of them if they're doing their job right (I do like switching up my color of the day though). Only docking this a star because it's still spendy for a tank top... but well worth it.

April 16, 2019

My go to tank!

I love this top, it goes perfect with jeans to go out to dinner, or pair with activewear for a day of climbing. Fit is perfect for my body, too.

April 15, 2019

So comfortable and flattering!

I wear this tank top almost every time I work out. It’s great for running, hiking, casual wear, literally everything! I am really short so I was worried about the fit because most tank tops don’t fit me well but it’s super flattering!
