Versatile and awesome
I've used this as a mid-layer (over a capilene cool tee) for two thru hikes now - The AT and PCT It just works great. It wasn't too warm like most other fleeces, and the zip is great for venting. Whenever I would work up a sweat it dried off surprisingly fast, and the hood is the perfect thickness for me. I'm still using the same one... Read More, with only 2 minor tears. I used it today as a stand alone layer for a 40 degree trail run and it worked great.
I prefer the last generation
This years top doesn't fit around the neck as nicely. Its too loose and lets drafts in. It also gets in the way of zipping jackets to the top. Its also missing the breast pocket that was useful when needing a little body heat along with the pocket.(keeping a phone warm or a powerboat of sorts). Meh I like the old one better!
Thank you for your feedback on this and we are sorry that this is missing the mark in some aspects. Your satisfaction with our product is always guaranteed so if you'd like to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) this back to us, please feel free to do so.
My absolute favorite go-to cold weather active layer.
Patagonia's capilene thermal weight layers are so phenomenal. The cut/fit is great, really comfortable, no bulkiness, the thumb loops are incredibly welcome, and the fabric is much warmer than one might think just holding it, but with an outer layer and/or shell it really does provide incredible warmth, but even more importantly to me: incredi... Read Moreble breathability. I tend to run hot and sweat easily during medium-to-high output activities, so I absolutely need breathability in cold weather and the cap thermals breath SO well and I'm able to perfectly manage heat buildup. The cap thermal hoody I actually use as an outer layer over a t-shirt a lot hiking/trekking in cool weather. It's also served plenty of days snowboarding, but if it's cold enough to warrant needing the hood on the mountain, I'm likely wearing the crew neck version with a wool one-piece hooded union suit I have and use that hood. Love the chest zip picket on this too. Only improvement I can think of: I wouldn't mind seeing this hoody version have a slightly longer sleeve cuff and incorporating a thumb hole in the cuff instead of the thumb loop. I think it would complement the hooded version nicely since it's designed to provide the most standalone warmth of all the cap thermals.
The thermal zip-neck base layer is great for running in very cold temperatures. The combination of the seamless hoody and high zipper keeps the wind and the cold away from the neck. When worn under a running jacket the base layer is warm but will not result in overheating. I bought a medium size but should have bought a small as I think this item w...

Amazingly Versatility - favorite piece on the PCT
I brought this on a 500 mile hike of the Washington section of the PCT. Wore it to sleep in and early mornings and evenings setting up and breaking down camp under the Houdini shell, perfect combo on trail. Love the hood to hold warmth. Size medium perfect for me - 5'10" ,170, 42 chest 32 waist. Thumb loops so nice to keep sleeves down wh... Read Moreen layering. Could use one more inch in sleeve length. Wore it in trail towns casually - find myself reaching for it at home all the time. Breathes well and drys fast!
Best purchase I made for Kilimanjaro
This is an excellent base layer. I just returned from a 12 day trip to Africa which included a 7 day hike to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro. This is the one piece of clothing that I wore all 7 days. It was breathable yet kept me warm. The hood kept sun off of my neck in cooler weather and allowed me to bundle up in the coldest weather (12 degrees on summit... Read More day). I wore this at night to sleep in, along with capilene base layer pants. It worked great. AND, even after 7 days, smelled great. Great piece of clothing.
AMAZING performance piece - uh,where's the pocket
This is an AMAZING performance base layer for aerobic activities!!! I wear this for trail running along with a nano puff vest in temps down to the teens and have absolutely no issues with warmth or heat regulation. I have yet to find a base layer that serves the same functionality. I love that I don't have to worry about a beanie and can easil... Read Morey regulate the heat and ventilation by removing/replacing the hood and zipping/unzipping without having to stop running of unzip/zip a pocket to stuff a beanie in. I'm getting ready to buy another one,but noticed the chest pocket has been removed!!! What?? Bring it back (pretty please)!!It IS NOT an urban compatible piece. When I first got it,I tried wearing it out around town under a vest and it just looks and functions a bit weird. If you leave it partially unzipped,the flaps flop around and look strange. Who cares what it looks like if you're on the way to do something amazing,but sitting at the pub it will definitely stand out.
Great piece and very versatile
The Thermal Weight material is a big improvement over the old capilene 4 material as itI can be worn over a wider range of temperatures. Its also more packable. I'm 6' and 178 lbs and the large is a perfect fit except the sleeves are too short. I wear a 33/34 inch sleeve dress shirt,so my arms are a bit long. Even so,when I hold my arms ... Read Morestraight out in from of me the sleeves ride up 2" above my wrist bones. Adding another inch or two would make it perfect.
This shirt is absolutely wonderful. The cut is perfect; when it's cold and blowy,I'll zip up the neck and wear the hood underneath my ski helmet. The top of the collar falls just below my lip,a perfect place to maximize protection while not getting soggy from my breath. I'm a very skinny guy and it fits genuinely slim,which is rad. G...

Perfect Base Layer
I bought this top for a deployment to Afghanistan and I could not have been more pleased with its performance. I wore this as my sole base layer under my combat top and that's all you need (at or around 35 degrees F). Not bulky which is great. I am 5'9" 180lbs and have a Medium.
Best baselayer. Ever. Perfect balance of warmth,breathability,low weight. Most cross-functional and versatile. Excellent stretch with hip coverage. Thumb loops are money. Great neck seal when zipped up/hood down. Best active combo award: as a mid layer between a LW Cappie t-shirt and an Airshed pullover. Smokin.
Excellent hoody that I would buy again
Everything about this hoody is spot on. The fit,fabric,warm (almost too warm for high intensity unless below 35 degrees--please make a lighter version),arm & torso length spot on,hood fit is perfect,thumb loops are small and work very well when using or out of the way when not using. The funk stays away for longer than other synthetics,but stil... Read Morel not as good as wool. But,with wool you get a short life span,the moth issue,and wool takes longer to dry. I would buy again in a heartbeat. I also own the air hoody. It is tough for me to decide which one I like better. This piece is slightly warmer and will probably last longer. I tend to wear the air hoody more as a casual piece around the house and this one for performance/warmth.
Gold standard baselayer
The Capleline 4 is the best weight that Patagonia makes. It feels more breatheable than midweight,but it is considerably warmer. It feels great against the skin,and wicks sweat like a champ. My only gripe is the fit,and really that's only because I recently have begun wearing the Merino Air Hoody. That piece has awakened me and shown me that... Read More not all baselayers need to be insanely form-fitting. So,if Patagonia made a Capeline 4 Hoody without a zipper,and that fit SLIGHTLY looser than usual baselayers. That would be baselayer perfection.
This is the single best piece of clothing I own
I literally wear this piece all the time. Whether it's dry-tooling an M9,BC skiing,a mountain rescue call,or slepping my 3 year old around on my back. The fabric is amazing and always seems to retain just the right amount of warmth and breath-ability. Fit is perfect and the increased stretch compared to other Capilene pieces just adds to its c... Read Moreomfort. The thumb loops are great for vertical endeavors or keeping things tucked when layering in colder weather. The hood is a perennial favorite of mine,from blocking out spin-drift whilst belaying,keeping the sun off my neck ascending,and most importantly a snot barrier when carrying my toddler around...:-). There are a few minor things that could be improved,like bringing back the small chest pocket and lengthening the zipper a bit to allow for better venting during aerobic activities. Otherwise,this is a must have piece for climber/skier/dad types.
Favorite piece of gear
I have the Cap 4 Hoody, and I carried it the entire time while thru hiking the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail over 2015. I changed a lot of gear and warming layers, but kept this hoody with me from the below freezing February conditions in Georgia to the 100 degree August SoCal days. It's lightweight and has an awesome hood. I used ... Read Morea down quilt for a sleeping bag and the hood was perfect to pull over my head on most nights and in the morning durning the trip. In colder conditions I would put a beanie over it with no problems. Like someone else said, the fit is slim, but I am 6 foot and 160 lbs and still wore a Medium. It isn't loose and I would buy a large if I wasn't buying it as a hiking mid/warming layer. Favorite piece of gear, I won't go backpacking without it.
Great piece, tighter fit vs other Slim Fit
I have the previous version that was called Capilene 4. For cool weather rock climbing or as an ice climbing layer, this is a great piece and is well designed and thought out. The only caveat is that the sizing is snug compared to other Patagonia slim fit garments, so for me it is less versatile--I can't wear it as a thin fleece, only as a ba... Read Morese layer (i.e. as intended). For reference, customer service confirmed for me that the garment chest measurement for a size medium is 37.5". By comparison, the new Merino Air hoody chest is 39.5", even though it is also listed as a slim fit.
