Patagonia Women's Capilene® Air Hoody

True To Size
October 3, 2020


I wear my hoody for everything from travel to cross country skiing/hiking. The hood ads a layer of warmth and it can always convert to an attractive neck covering.

New favorite top!

So warm yet so breathable. It's my new favorite piece of clothing. I'm an environmental scientist so I need functional clothing in the field that keep me warm and allow me to move. My hair is short so this shirt keeps my neck warm whether the hoop is up or down. When riding my bike, I can pull the hood under my helmet to keep my face, ear... Read Mores and head warm. It also is just flattering enough to wear as every day wear. I like my clothing to be versatile, like my life, and this shirt meets all expectations.

Best All Purpose Outdoor Piece

I love this top (so much I ordered another one that wasn't on sale). This top eliminates additional clothing I would normally have to wear such as a hat and buff. The sleeves are long enough to cover if I raise my arms, and the material is very comfortable, warm and wicks well. I also usually put on a cami underneath and it isn't bulky or... Read More uncomfortable, yet still form-fitting. It doesn't stink like polyester either if I sweat or wear it for multiple days on a camping trip. It also doesn't pill and seems really durable (I got velcro from a glove stuck to it in the washer, and it was still fine after pulling it off). I use it primarily for hiking in the coldest conditions up to about 65 degrees, but also to wear out and about for non outdoor activities because it's so flattering. Can't wait to try it nordic skiing! Every time I wear it on the mountain someone compliments me on it (so much so my oblivious husband even said something about all the compliments). I also love that it's made from recycled materials. I'm 5'6" and 117 lbs and the small fits perfectly. Please always have this item available after (if) I wear out my other two items!

Simply the Best

This is the second capilene air hoody I have purchased. Absolutely the best fitting,best temperature control and warmth article made! Love it and will by more.

September 2, 2020

My favorite base layer!

This hoody is flattering, adorable, comfortable and allows air flow while keeping you warm. Ive worn this skiing, hiking, while sick with a fever (and didnt feel cold or hot!!!). I have two of these, one to wash and one to wear. Note: the Cap Air Crew fits differently than the Hoody version. Im an XS in the Crew and a S in the hoody.

Soft, light, warm, breathable, functional

Worth it! Capilene Air Hoody is soft, breathable, lightweight, keeps you warm, wicks if sweaty so you don't overheat. The hood turns into a balaclava. I wear it as base layer for coaching rowing on the water. Waiting for a sale to order more!

June 17, 2020

Best Layer

I love this layer. I enjoy the warmth of wool although it can make me a little itchy, but this piece is so smooth and warm it's like cotton. I bought one for running and another for snowboarding with the hood. I'm stoked on not having to add a balaclava to my list of gear, since the hood has nice coverage. All around great piece, all seas... Read Moreons and outdoor activities, you won't regret it.

Super Warm


March 29, 2020

warm but way too much pilling and too fragile

Pros: Looks better than other baselayers. Warm. Light. Cons: Pilling beyond belief. Durability questionable at best. Bulky. I bought this in navy before a 3 month trip to Chile, figuring that it would work as both a baselayer for outdoor time and a sweater for city time - looks much nicer than my cap 4 hoody! Ended up only wearing it in town. Aft... Read Moreer 2 wears, I started to notice the pilling. It's worse than any sweater I've ever owned. After wearing it a couple more times, I found a hole in the back. I don't know where the hole came from, since I haven't actually worn the hoody for anything except sitting around indoors. I definitely wouldn't expect this thing to hold up to any real outdoor use. Not the quality I was expecting from Patagonia, especially given the price. Sticking with regular old Capilene from now on.

Hi Megan, thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We're truly sorry to hear about the way the hoody has worn out after such little use. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

Great shirt

I had to get an xs because they were out of s, but it is stretchy enough that it still fits just fine. Very light but warm. I am extremely sensitive to wool, and I can feel a little itch, but it is very mild and doesn't bother me.

March 8, 2020

Love it!

I love this layer!!! I want to keep it and continue to wear it, but unfortunately the first time I wore it I noticed a hole in the armpit. Super warm and comfortable for all the outdoor activites.

Used this a BUNCH on high output, long hikes in the mountains as a BASE, MIDDLE and OUTER layer. Love it best right on my skin with a layer like the Patagonia houdini. Great thermo-regulation, breathability, warmth, wicking and drying. The way it's knit is impressive and it creates this seersucker like wave to the way the fabric lays. I imagin... Read Moree it helps trap warmth while letting vapor out. It's a bit sheer when stretched because of this, so it's not perfect transition to casual wear but much cuter than most technical shirts. Unless you look really closely, it looks like your standard knit sweater. Also seems easy to snag so keep in mind when using as an outer layer. (I only have one snag so far.) LOVE the hood. Eliminates the need for a hat and a buff. I love this piece. It sparks joy! ;)

February 24, 2020

Lightweight but not lacking in Warmth!

This is my go-to base layer this season (in fact, I've bought three this season alone, and I'm wearing it as I write this!) Though slightly sheer and seems like it wouldn't hold up, this layer has survived 45 mph wind rides, sub-zero temps on the slopes, and is perfect for those chilly mornings at the crag. The hood is the perfect fe... Read Moreature, especially if you forget your buff on the slopes. The length is flattering, and the long sleeves are perfect for someone with my height. I'm 5'10, 130lbs, and wear a size Small. Works great by itself, or underneath another base layer for perfect warmth in the coldest of conditions. Well worth the investment!

February 21, 2020

So sad, but true

This is an updated review. I was in total love with this product over this past year as I wore it. Its so warm, lightweight, attractive,....but...I had to remove the pills regularly on the sides and under the arms, okay I can handle that. Then the elastic in the hood began to disintegrate and leave little black pieces all over the front of my neck.... Read More I was so sad!!! I washed it sparingly on a hand wash cycle with gentle soap and laid it flat to dry. For what you pay for this premium base layer I would hope it would last more than a year. I really hope this piece will be improved because I miss it in my favorite things to wear in the winter!

The PERFECT layer

I got the Cap Air when I was finishing up a thru-hike of the CDT two years ago, heading into a snowy Glacier National Park, and it has been my favorite baselayer for everything ever since. Paired with a rain or storm shell and a micropuff, you'll stay comfortable in just about every condition from blizzards to torrential downpours to just bein... Read Moreg comfortable in your sleeping bag at night. It's cozy and soft like a sweater (I'm pretty picky and usually love the softest cotton to sleep in), is durable (it's traveled the CDT, the Hayduke Trail, and hundreds of miles of running, backpacking, bikepacking, and skiing missions in between and still looks new), and doesn't hold odors like fleece layers do. It's great for activities where you're sweating a lot or in damp conditions because the wool stays warm when wet. The warmth to weight ratio is also hard to beat. I've scoured just about every ultralight brand and nothing comes close to the Cap Air. Just bought the leggings in size small and am in LOVE and just got the mens top in size small (I wanted black and it fits perfectly--I like baselayers a little loose, they're more comfortable and keep me warmer). HIGHLY recommend for your next adventure.

February 15, 2020

Excellent for travel

I love this as my base layer for cross country skiing. Also I take this top for travel. It is lightweight, packs easily, and it is a great layer if the temperature gets cold while touring.

February 10, 2020

Very warm. Excellent Baselayer.

I first invested in the Cap Air Crew a year and half ago. I have loved it so much and wear that piece a lot. The sleeve did get snagged in my puppy's mouth (my fault! But the amazing iron clad guarantee swapped it out for a new one despite my preference to repair and keep on wearing) and a tiny hole started at the neck from the washing machine... Read More (this one I managed to sew up myself). So yes, it is a more delicate piece due to the very fine wool construction. Despite that, it is still my warmest layer (and I get cold easily!) and my go-to during the extreme temperature drops. I have loved my Cap Air so much that I invested in a second one - this time the Cap Air Hoody to have that built-in buff to keep my neck warm. LOVE this extra feature. Like the sweater itself, the hood is light, airy, and not restricting at all. I'm not gonna lie, I haven't worn either the crew or hoody for active pursuits like nordic skiing, although I know they would perform really well. I use the Thermal Weight crew tops for skiing and hiking. I think I have just preferred to keep these Cap Air layers as sweaters for work/going out. Regardless, they are very versatile and magical layers - I never overheat in them, but I also stay toasty warm. Zero bulk, very airy, and fit very close to skin without any restriction at all! I am 5'1, 95 lbs and wear XXS in all the Patagonia baselayers. Usually XS in everything else Patagonia.

January 7, 2020

Really warm and good looking

I love how this top feels on - it is super lightweight and very warm for its thickness. The neck is loose so does not have the constrictive feeling of a turtleneck. The only thing I don't like is that the fabric does not seem hardy - i have threads coming loose after only wearing twice.

Great for everything!

I love the capilene air hoody! I use it for snowboarding and bike commuting in the winter and it keeps my neck nice and warm and fits nicely under helmets when needed! It also comes down over my hips which is nice for tucking in to snow pants or having a little extra warmth in that area! I’ve never had a better base layer.

Capilene Air Hoody - So cozy!

Great piece! I had been looking at this for a long time and finally took the plunge..glad I did, it is so comfortable for casual wear but will also be great for skiing & hiking too!

December 31, 2019

Fantastic layer but see through

Love this layer. I’ve barely worn anything else since it arrived. The hood is comfortable as a turtle neck (something I worried would choke, but doesn’t). Only problem is that the fabric is sheer and quite see through. I wear a vest over it. Perfect ski layer for both alpine and Nordic. I would have many of these if they weren’t so sheer.

Capeline Air Hoody - my favorite piece ever!

W’s Capilene Air Hoody (5 stars)

I’ve owned the Capilene Air Crew for two years and I wear it all the time, so I decided to get the hoody version. I love it. It’s super comfortable and soft, wicks moisture really well, and keeps you warm. It’s great for higher intensity exercise but when layered it’s also good for resort skiing, etc. The hood is awesome because it’s a built-in lay... Read Moreer around my head that I can pull up under my helmet, or when the hood is down I can just use it as a buff. The only challenge is that pulling the hood up somewhat restricts what you can do with your hair, if your’s is longer like mine. I’m 5’6” and got an XS, which is the size I generally order from Patagonia; it fits me really well.

Best Product Ever

My new Capilene Air is perfect. I bought it for a ski layer, but have found myself wearing it all the time. A cozy layer for around the house, a walk with the dog, even found it great for sleep wear when the temp dropped and my head was cold I just pulled on the hood and was toasty warm all night. I got the large. I'm 5'8", 155 lbs. ... Read MoreAppreciate the long length in the arms and torso.

lightweight but cozy

Love it. The fit is perfect, material is soft and cozy. The integrated hood is terrific.

December 18, 2019

Best base layer ever

The Capilene line of base layers are just awesome. The hoody is extra special because you can pull it over your ears for an added layer of warmth without having to have a hat. The material is lightweight which makes it very comfortable but it is also very warm.

December 16, 2019


Honestly the hoody looked so good right out of the package I was torn on if I should wear it to dinner with a nice wool skirt or out skiing. Since I ski way more than I dine out the skiing won and I could not be happier. Super light but super warm. It is soft and moves freely during activity.

Paired with vest on a chilly Wyoming morning six mile trek into the Mt Leidy Highlands and in a light snow did not need a shell. It seems to be able to adjust it's protection base don my exertion level. Will be ordering another and one for my husband too. He tends to over layer and regret it a mile into the trip. I think this will be the ticket to keep him cozy and regulate some of the heat he generates. Thanks again Patagonia!

Love this

Patagonia continues making stylish, functional, great quality gear. I had to make myself wash this since I’ve wearing it non stop and didn’t want to be without it!

I now have 2 capilene air hoodies. The first one is 3 years old and still like new but I wear it so much I wanted another.

Nice when it's new

Warm, soft, beautiful and comfortable. BUT... it's not going to stay nice long. I've had this just 12 day and have worn it a ton. The crazy weather in AK this last week has allowed me to test it in all kinds of conditions. It's too hot running in 30 deg and warmer, perfect for skate skiing in the teens, awesome for bc skiing in 20-30... Read More deg with a shell on top. I love how I can pull up the hood or just the neck to protect my face, and it's more breathable than a buff. It won't stay nice long. It's already piling under the arms from where my arms lightly rub against my shell while bc skiing. Size is pretty true, but slightly larger. I'm 5'6" and 120 lbs. The small is just slightly loose, which is fine. An XS might be better but I have long arms. For the price, I would not buy this again. Patagonia needs to make the outer part of the shirt MUCH more durable if they want to market this to women who actually do things. For this price I want something that's going to work and also last (and look good) more than 12 days.

This is the best thing I have bought for myself in a long time. It's soft, warm, flattering, layers beautifully, and the hood--why aren't there more hoodies like this?

Absolutely love it!

I've never worn such a warm, comfortable fabric. This is my new favorite adventure piece by far. The extra material for the hoodie/buff can be annoyingly snug when not in use, but it is so nice to have when it's windy.

Function and style

Beautiful dark blue with a unique patterned weave that looks like it will be durable in addition to looking great. This is a crossover item -- I can wear it to the office as well as on the trail.

I bought the pants last year and was amazed by their lack of bulk and abundance of warmth. The hoodie is perfect for the cold as a base layer. The material is soft and thin while being deceivingly cozy! I would live in it if I could!

November 8, 2019

Soft (really), light and warm

This hoody is everything I hoped for. I wore as a base layer on a cold walk day and it was very comfortable, soft and breathably warm. Although the "hoody" design looks odd out of the box , it is cute worn and keeps the wind off my neck. This can be dressed up with a nice pair of jeans to go out. The first time I wore it I got compliments... Read More. I bought 3 of these after seeing how cute it was on my daughter and I definitely would recommend.

The Best Baselayer On and Off the Mountain

I love how warm this baselayer is and how good it looks. I wear it around town all the time and for hiking and skiing. I feel like it's too nice to wear paddling or biking, but I could.

Favorite piece of clothing

This sweater is worth every penny. It can easily be worn as a regular sweater, then go straight to a run or ski. It is super soft and lightweight. I love it!!

Great snug fit. Slight scratchiness

Great snug fit. Slight scratchiness to the fabric, but I find that with any wool. Very warm. Hood is perfect for under a hood/helmet.

Great weight to layer lightly or heavily. Long lasting...everyone in our adult family has ended up getting one over the years because they are so versatile.

This is a cozy piece

This is a cozy piece that will be functional for a variety of purposes. I love the dark green color.

I chill easily so was looking for a lightweight hoodie when traveling to cooler locales. Unless I was in really cold weather, I would be too warm. I have sensitive skin.

Ordered this Hoody for my wife and she loves it. Warm and breathable, from morning runs to evening mountain bike rides, this is her go to layer for cool Fall outings, and I'm sure it will be a favorite this winter for the skin track.

October 11, 2019

Incredible technical performance

This piece has blown me away in terms of performance. It has among the highest warmth-to-weight ratio of any piece I own, and fills a gap of being a very warm, but still comfortable and light, first layer. I'm especially impressed with its wicking; compared to sometimes-clammy wool, it dries rapidly, though still retains the smell-protection. ...

Capilene Air is My New Favorite Fabric

Last year I was doing a hut to hut ski trip and a friend of mine was going on and on about her new favorite shirt. So I went home and bought an Air Capilene crew. I recieved it and wore it for 5 days straight. I was so worried that they might change up the fit or the fabric that a month later I bought another one. And now they have brought out this... Read More new one with a hoodie and I'm wearing it as I write this. And I bought the tights as well. It is truly a versatile fabric. Really light but very warm. Wonderful against the skin.

This is my new favorite piece of clothing! It's so soft and warm. I got the forest green and absolutely love the color. This hoody is so versatile that I'm wearing it all the time - as a warm mid-layer for all sorts of outdoor activities, but also in town or to the office.

Amazing product for everyday use in cold climates! I live in New Hampshire and wear this under my clothes on really cold days. It is so light weight, but keeps me SO warm! I love it. And the head cover looks good worn down around my neck when I don't need it. LOVE THIS SWEATER.

February 5, 2019

I underrated this

Ok so. When this came in the mail I was like "wow for the price this seems like a piece of crap". It seemed thin, and I was didn't think it was going to keep me warm. No. It is surprisingly so warm. I am a freeze baby ok, but I sweat when I'm wearing it. And, the hood is AMAZING!!

I am 5’5”, 129lbs and bought a medium so I could wear it as a base layer and over the top of tank or long sleeve T. This has turned out to be the most versatile piece of technical clothing I own.

It feels featherweight on...skims my body without being tight...and on top of everything else its pretty. Oh, and it washes up like a dream. You wont regret your purchase. I just bought my second one.

Beautiful and Practical

Like a few others mentioned, I was on the fence to purchase because of the price point. However, I'm so happy I splurged because this is a great sweater that can be used for both athletic and regular activities. I wear mine to work. I work in a cold clinic and wear this on the job.

I was hesitant to buy this due to the price, but it is well worth the price. I just got back from a run in the usual awful midwestern winter day - cold, cloudy, windy and damp. I wore this as a mid layer under a soft shell jacket and was very warm while running. It was also dry when I took my jacket off, inside of my jacket - not so much.... I real... Read Morely bought this as a base/mid layer for skiing, but I can see it will get much more use than just skiing. The hood is great, it will fit under my helmet like a baklava, down the hood will replace a neck warmer.

Great in the field

This proved to be an excellent base layer on a snowy, chilly November field survey in a Michigan cold-water trout stream. I spend a large portion of time working in the field (often in cold-water trout streams) and this was the first chance I had to "field test" this layer. It was great! Did not get too cold or warm. Held up great to the ... Read Morechallenge! I like the cowl neck hood and use it often to simply keep my neck warm. The snug fitting hood is great to pull up all the way if the wind starts to blow for extra warmth. I regularly wear this as a primary layer so elected to order one size up (L) so it wouldn't be too snug.

This baselayer is ALL TIME.

I love this baselayer. I got it in the green color, which is epic. It is feels so nice on the skin and is warm and breathable. The hood fits really well under a ski helmet. I love everything about this top and am probably going to order the long sleeve version without the hood as well. Highly recommend!

Best base layer ever

I got this as a gift. I threw it on for a walk with the dog with a Nano Puff over it for a test. I have a bad habit of over dressing and it was 28 degrees. While I got warm on my walk, I never got hot. The layer is light and breathable. The description is slim fit, but since this is woven, it stretches quite a bit. Pricey, yes. But I can see this b...

Best clothing article I own

This hooded sweater is the best thing ever. It’s warm but breathes super well (you can even see through the weave), doesn’t hold smells (I’ve worn it for a week straight without feeling the need to wash it), is one of the softest things ever, and looks cute, too. Thanks to the weave pattern, it can be dressed up, instead of just being a layer for o... Read Moreutdoor activities. I’ve had lots of people comment on how much they love my sweater and then they’re shocked when I show them to neck is actually a hood and it’s meant for the outdoors. I’ve worn it hiking and skiing, for traveling (great temperature regulation while flying), as well as around town with a pair of jeans. I love this shirt and plan to buy another one (or two) in the near future.

Merino for Tall

I love the concept of the materials and purpose of this piece, but Patagonia has rewritten the code for how their garments fit women. I'm 5'4" and still have the shape of a gymnast, but the model in this video is 5'9". Too long, sadly I will have to return.

Inspired and brilliant

I am always looking for the best base layers for running from fall into winter. I want my core body temp to stabilize and to be warm but not hot and feel comfortable not confined. This inspired design- which is basically a stretchy base layer burka! - is brilliant! And the funny thing is, it’s also really good looking. You could wear this with jean... Read Mores and look clean classic and smart. Or you can run with it as your base and be set. I want this in more colors- I have navy. Hoping there will be some other fun color options. Love love love this! Bravo Patagonia.
