Ws Capilene® Thermal Weight Zip-Neck

True To Size
April 24, 2023

Perfect piece for me

Keeps me warm on my morning walks, lightweight, soft and cozy.

March 19, 2023

Not Thermal

With thermal Im the title and based on reviews I thought this shirt would be much warmer. Its only good as a base layer and needs additional layer to be warm in weather under 55 degrees. Also not a fan of the thumb band. Much prefer other brands for thumb holes that have sleeve cover hand. Returnee shirt

Response from Patagonia
March 22, 2023

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review Mary. We are very sorry to hear that this zip-neck did not provide enough warmth for you. Please note, this is meant to be a baselayer so it is meant to be worn with other layers depending on the temperature you are in. With that said, we would be more than happy to pass this feedback along to our Product Design Team so they can take a deeper look into the thumb loop construction.

Use it daily, fall through spring (Alaska)

It's your capilene zip-neck base layer shirt. I have 3, and I love them. Caveat: the size has changed. My 1st one (10 yr ago?) is a M and fits fine; but when I ordered my newest (last yr), a M was too big. (Your exchange system is A+. ) Reason the size has changed: the fabric between the raised "nubs" is thinner than 10 yr ago, so it... Read More stretches more. PS: I used to hike/climb/run/ski, but at 80, I'm down to short walks :-(

Breathable but cozy top

This winter weight top is great for outdoor activities--snowshoeing, hiking, etc. Breathable and moisture wicking. Love the zip turtleneck--very versatile. For my height, sleeves and body are a bit long, but they work.

February 9, 2023

Want to love the top, but very inconsistent sizing

I want to love this top. I have the hooded version in a medium from last year, and it's pretty fitted. It's my favorite top for cross country skiing in cold weather. I was so excited to get the zip-up version this year. I ordered the same size (medium) in the sound blue. It was backordered, so it took a few extra weeks to arrive. Unfortun... Read Moreately this years medium hangs on me like a burlap sack, and it will be too lose to wear as a baselayer. Because of the backorder delay, all of the smalls are sold out, so I can't exchange it.

January 25, 2023

Good fabric but shaped like a tent

The color and the fabric are great but the shape is like an oversize tent. I am returning it.

January 22, 2023

Too small

I love this product. However, it run toward the very small size. I wear a medium in any other brand but not in Patagonia.

January 20, 2023

Not as thick as previous products

I returned because not the product I was expecting. I was looking for a thick warm base layer. This was too thin and large.

January 13, 2023

Flattering Fit

I bought my first one in green and then my second one in blue because I liked the first one so much (purchased at REI). These are flattering and comfortable. I wear them paired with a R1 Daily Jacket (I have three full zips) and love the color combos. These are quickly becoming my preferred outfit (I'm retired). My only complaint is the the ar... Read Morems are a bit wide for a base layer and the elastic for the thumbs is irritating -- but easily snipped out.

January 9, 2023

Surprisingly and Deceptively Warm

I bought this as a gift for my daughter. She works on a dairy farm and is out in all kinds of weather. She shared with me that when she took it out of the box she thought to herself, "This shirt is so thin, there is no way this is going to keep me warm." It is now her go-to shirt for working on the farm.

January 1, 2023

Warm and light weight

Warm yet light weight. Stretchy so that you can move about freely and do activity comfortably. I would not rate this a warm base layer if worn alone. The opening at the wrist is very wide. I am not a fan of using the elastic thumbholes, elastic Thumbholes are not comfortable. Would prefer a tighter fit at the wrist instead.

December 16, 2022

Perfect single or multi-layer shirt

After stealing my boyfriends version of this, I bought my own. I typically wear XS/S and ordered a small which is my standard Patagonia size in jackets, vests and fleeces. The S was close/ form-fitting. Since I was after a more relaxed fit, I exchanged for a medium which I am pleased with. The length is a bit longer than necessary. With a long-tors... Read Moreo, I still have a lot to tuck in. I wish it was an inch or two shorter, but there wont be any drafting happening with this shirt! The Borealis green is a beautiful jade! A great staple for years to come whether in the kitchen or out in the wild!

December 3, 2022

Love Boralis Green color

I bought this because I'm a fan of the Boralis Green color (and I like to be warm). This base layer is great in all respects (length, width, color, fabric, warmth) except the sleeves are baggy around the wrist -- on me (size medium) there is 2" of extra fabric, and the silly strip of elastic band doesn't work at all - it hangs down w... Read Morehen I don't use it, and when I hook it around my thumb it's irritating (I ended up cutting it off). I also find the neck to be a bit loose for a base layer, so some chill in coming in on places I didn't expect. But aside from that I really like it and bought two.

November 24, 2022

If you run on the cold side......this is the ticket

I'm perpetually cold and my Patagonia layers are the only solution. More colors and patterns please. I wear this as the first layer on a daily basis. Perfect weight for traveling and every day. Breathes. Every day starts with this layer. Love the new color coordination. More please.

November 14, 2022

Great shirt BUT

Really like this top. Fit isn't too tight. I would rate it as a relaxed fit instead of a slim fit. My big beef is that my zipper doesn't easily zip to the top. The shirt came with some fraying on the inside of the zipper, and the fraying interferes with the zipper. If it wasn't for this issue, I would be happy with the shirt.

Hi Denise! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with fit of the zip-neck. It features a slim fit for east layering. That said, we truly appreciate this feedback and we'll share it with our design crew.

Great fit, warm and good quality

Have purchased many of these over the years. For me, this one is the best fit and best quality Ive had.

April 27, 2022

Great everyday wear!

This is my 5th zip-neck capilene base layer from Patagonia, I love them and wear them all the time!

April 23, 2022

Go-To Hiking and Backpacking Top

Super soft on skin, great length in zipper, use this for all my day and long-distance hikes.

March 29, 2022

Great layer

Love this layer. Very soft, breathes well. I use it for hiking and it's a good top layer for when it's in the 50s, and a good base layer when it's colder. It has small thumb straps I really like as well to keep it down on my arms/hands you can use.

March 19, 2022

Fashionable comfort

Not only can this be comfortably worn in your sporting pursuits, but is perfectly acceptable for more formal engagements. The runways of fashion are at last getting the message.

March 17, 2022

Just right

It is not too warm and the fabric is thin. Still comfortable. Good for layering.

March 15, 2022

See through

Very disappointed. Returned shirt. It was not thermal weight as described. It had a bizarre alternating row design - a row of practically see through material and then a bumpy row of fleece. Guess they thought it was innovative and releases heat. Should be marketed as lightweight. Definitely not the shirt to be wearing under layers on Mount Washing... Read Moreton in the winter!

Whats with the darts

I loved the material and the color and was so happy with it until I tried it on. The darts made the whole fit very odd. Not a big busted woman. I returned it because of the darts.

March 10, 2022

Love it!

This is a wonderful, warm base layer that I wear outside when I'm active (running, walking) and also around the house. It's thin, cuts the cold, and is just really comfortable. It's less precious than wool and was recommended to me by a Minnesota relative who has had several sets of these base layers for more than 20 years. What more... Read More could you want?

March 5, 2022

Very disappointed

I got this shirt for Christmas - less than 3 months ago. I love how it fits, however I have not worn it more than 5 times and it already has 2 holes in it around the stomach area. It has been gently cared for and laundered properly. I expected more out of Patagonia and I am very disappointed in the quality of this shirt.

Light weight soft warmth

Light as a feather and warm. Waffely very soft fabric. Fits nicely thru body. First time Ive seen mini thumb loops which are fine and work when needed. Only thing Id change its a bit long for me to tuck in neatly and Im not short.

February 21, 2022

A bit light and runs big

I expected this to be warmer. The material is nice and it is good when worn with 2 mid layers and an outer layer. But it does nothing on its own, wind blows right through it (even the slightest breeze) The size also runs fairly big. I usually wear a small but I wish I got this in an X small. It is very loose around the arms, underarm, torso, and a... Read Morell.

January 22, 2022

Yes, it's cozy warm, esp. if active.

I am a 73 yr old woman who walks/runs about 30 miles a week in Montana. This top is a perfect mid-layer for me but the sleeves are way too long. I usually wear a large (am a 42B bra size) but have to go to XL in your tops. Weird sizing.

January 11, 2022

So far so good

I have worn it twice while skiing, by itself under a ski jacket and have stayed warm in 25-30 degrees F. Its comfortable, and not too constraining. It has thumb hole loops which are appreciated. It runs slightly large, and is definitely long enough to tuck into pants.

January 9, 2022

Got if for Christmas

and it only comes off for laundering! I have worn this daily since Christmas! It is incredibly warm and deceptively light, never traps odor even after it has been slept in, night after night. It washes well and dries in a few minutes. This garment has saved me so far, as I have a bad intolerance to the cold. I would buy this again in a minute!!!!

December 27, 2021

Perfect weight and fit for outdoor activities

Love this shirt and just go my second one. Its light weight and really comfortable but still warm so good for running, hiking, biking or ski base layer.

November 16, 2021


Love everything about this. Slim fit, comfortable material, and not too long. A good base layer for mild autumn weather.

A jacket-dress?

I am 5'4 and wear a medium in pretty much everything. This jacket was way too long on me with long sleeves so I ended up returning it. Nice color though!

Thanks for the feedback! This one does run a little longer. We're happy to provide all garment dimensions in the future.

Warm, Great Three season shirt

I have a couple of these Thermal weight shirts. They are great for skiing on cold days. However, also great on rainy, windy, damp days in the spring and fall. Fit true to size. They wear well for many years. I wish Patagonia made them in some fun colors besides the boring colors they are known for.

February 26, 2021

Great fit and comfort

I bought this shirt for a layer for hiking and skiing. Love the weight of the product, like the fit its long enough, not skimpy. Its also a flattering fit.

Comfortable and surprisingly warm!

Great baselayee! I also bought the mens version for my husband which he loves as well! Keeps us warm skiing!

Bring back the old design

sadly, i can't wear the air/wool so am stuck with Capilene and this top changes annually, and not for the better. it no longer has the trim stitching under the torso, that gives you some definition of being a woman, comes in not so fun colors anymore, and also just runs baggy and super long. also XXS and XS were exactly the same when i tried t...

January 18, 2021

A bit lightweight

This top is lighter weight than I expected. I went out with it and a vest and the wind whipped right through my arms. I'm not crazy about the color.

Excellent base layer

I'm in NYC and have worn it out running as both a single layer and as a base layer depending on the weather conditions---temperature, rain, wind. The fabric does a fantastic job of wicking away sweat and keeping me warm and dry.

November 22, 2020

Soft on the skin

This Capilene shirt is instantly warming, soft and a Goldilocks fit....not too tight, not too loose. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it needs help in the smelly department.

Perfect base layer for a variety of activities (or lack thereof). Comfortable and perfect for layering

November 10, 2020

great layer

I have several of these. They do feel lighter than the mid-weight and are nice for layering.

I love this zip neck top. I bought it to replace my old one. It ran much bigger than my old top. I originally purchased a medium (the size of my old top) which I returned for an extra small. The extra small fits perfectly. I usually do wear a 4. So...the old top may have just run very small.

Not what I expected

I ordered this item with the bottoms and found both to be very sheer, meant to be worn like long underwear, which I didn't need so I sent them both back. Nothing wrong with the shirt, but it was too light weight for me, needing to be worn with a heavy outer layer.

Comfy, warm, and stylish

Super awesome quarter-zip! It feels light and packs up small but keeps you nice and warm. It's very cozy and feels great against my skin even if I don't have a layer underneath.

Ws Capilene® Thermal Weight Zip-Neck- LOVE it.

I have had the same merino wool under-layer for 20 years. It served me well- but was a bit too small at this stage in my mid 40s :) I love this one! It fits perfectly and is so comfortable, warm, but not too hot. For reference, I am 5'6" / 135 lbs. It hits below my hip; the sleeve length is a tad long, but I like that.

May 8, 2019

Weird cut - did sizing change?

The cut is really weird, too wide in the chest area and narrow around the hips. Were they going for a raglan cut, or what? I have always been between a size S, or M if I wanted a looser fit. (I am 5.6 at 120 pounds). This top runs large and even size Small is wide around the chest. Returned.

What a fantastic shirt this is! I have a lot of medical issues that leave me extremely sensitive to cold.

Just what I was looking for

I've been wearing a crew-neck UA baselayer for a couple years when I ski that I really like, but find it's a bit thick and very fitted.

Good fit

Although this was thinner than I expected for thermal weight,so far it has performed well for warmth. I like the fit,it is form fitting but not tight. The thumb straps are helpful for when I'm pulling a top on over top.

So cozy

I am always cold indoors and I love this top. It also performs well on hikes. I am petite (5'4") and it hits me at mid-hip,which is perfect.

Warm but Thin

I bought this as a warm under layer; it works as advertised; it is very warm and still quite thin; was able to transition and use as the only layer under jacket for spring; also is attractive for apres ski

May 27, 2017

Great Top

Great for early to mid Spring,at least in Alaska. Very comfortable.

Okay for the price.

Not very happy with the half zipper. The material sags around the zipper making the collar poor fitting. The burgundy color is also very disappointing. Will not purchase a similar item again.

March 18, 2017

Too thin and long

I really wanted to like this,but it was too thin and waaaay too long. I am 5'6'' and 130lbs,32DD and curvy hips and tried a medium. This was blousey below my bust and tight around my bum. Fit well in the bust and shoulders. It was almost long enough to cover my bum,like a tunic. Since it's meant as a base layer,the longer length... Read More would mean that it would either bunch up or hang down below other layers.

March 18, 2017

almost too warm

i work outside with horses,and this base layer keeps me very warm--best i've had. for indoors,it's too warm. wish i owned five more of this.

Thin but solid under-layer

For the price,the layer could definitely be a bit thicker (it's a bit see-through),as I can't believe it costs the same as the W's Better Sweater. However the sizing is right-on for me,and the fit is very flattering. I will definitely get a lot of good use out of this product!

February 25, 2017

My favorite top!

I absolutely love this top for cold weather. The waffle fleece inside traps the heat without the bulk of a heavier fleece. This top is very lightweight for how warm it is.

I am buying my third one of these. They are light weight but amazingly warm for the weight - and conversely cool when you need it to be. Very good looking also,I wear it for going out as well.

I Miss "Expedition Weight"

Hi. I have loved the expedition weight thermal tops for years.

So comfy, I kept them on all night. I had tried other heavyweight base layers, but I found them too bulky under my clothes. I can't speak highly enough of these. They are amazing!
