Ms Capilene® Midweight Crew

True To Size
November 27, 2023

Fabulous mid layer or wear alone!

Super comfortable and super soft! Best midlayer for activities in cold weather!

November 16, 2023

Great shirt

I use this shirt almost everyday (I have 5). It is great as a layer or as a stand alone shirt.

November 8, 2023

In for the long haul

I have some capilene shirts that are over 20 years old and they are still going strong. My only gripe with Patagonia is that they don’t make some of my favorites any more.

November 2, 2023


I'm a Northern Michigan golfer. Short season that this garment extends. First use was a 37 degree day. 3 layers...could swing and was never cold. My season may extended even further.

November 1, 2023

Nice base layer

Good for cool fishing days in the fall when you need a base layer with some warmth.

October 31, 2023


Lightweight, comfortable and warm. Great quality. A bit tight around the neck and I'm not a big person. But I still really like it. Yes, the tags are annoying but they are easily removed.

October 31, 2023

Good piece of merchandise!

This shirt, a Capilene Midweight Crew, is a robust, warm shirt. It's perfect for when the weather cools off in the fall, as it inevitably does.

October 16, 2023

quickly becoming my go-to LS black sleeve shirt

Took me a while to decide to buy it but I had a trip where I needed to take less. This fit the bill and I found I'm wearing it all the time now. Can't recommend highly enough.

September 8, 2023

New Favorite for Me

I wear my cool daily, long sleeve shirts frequently in the spring and fall. This capilene midweight fabric is spectacular. 3D weaving makes this piece Super warm for a midweight long sleeve. I wear it underneath my R1 1/4 zip for skiing all winter long. An absolute personal favorite.

August 30, 2023

My favorite base layer!

The midweights have become my favorite base layer set. They are very comfortable and most importantly not itchy. The fabric is smooth and is easy to layer over as well as being attractive enough to wear on their own. Fantastic base layer.

August 29, 2023

Good looking and true fit,

Good looking and true fit, very pleased

August 23, 2023

Great durable shirt for lots of activities

Got this several years ago for running and I've put it through a lot. It's my go-to base layer for cold weather runs, hikes, XC skiing, or long backpacking/road trips. I really like the grid texture as it helps insulate during high activity but also wicks sweat away very well. Great in fair weather too.

August 20, 2023

The men’s capiline tops are

The men’s capiline tops are one of my favorites. I have so many of them and they are workhorses on so many levels. Please make them in more colors

The Longest, Most Annoying Washing Instructions

I cant tell if I'm putting on a shirt or a washing machine instruction display. Really: do you need all these instructions woven into the seams of every thing you make? If I cut them out, the seam unravels. If I cant remove them all, their jagged edges remind me that they are all still there. For a $100 work out shirt that is perfect in so man...

Great running shirt for shoulder seasons

I'm 5.8" 152 lbs and the small size fit great. This shirt is neither too tight or loose which makes it great for running. The sleeves weren't too long and moisture management is great. I wear this shirt standalone when temps are in the 40-50F range.

March 20, 2023

Good Product

I have several capilene tops that I wear all the time. Perfect weight for layering or wearing by themselves in warmer when it's warmer.

March 14, 2023

Excellent shirt & wonderful customer

Excellent shirt & wonderful customer service. Was on sale for half price & I ordered two. Because the second one got stuck in delivery purgatory, Patagonia sent me the second free of charge. So I got one free. No where else would that happen? It's a rhetorical question. Have been buying Patagonia since before it was Patagonia and will ...

simple and nice!

This version is huge improvement over the older first-gen versions. No more stink, for real!

February 26, 2023

Capilene is a must have

Capilene is a must have if you enjoy being comfortable doing what you do

February 26, 2023

Really comfortable

I love their midweight base layers. I Work in a factory setting that can fluctuate from really cold to hot. These are super comfy and work great in both conditions.

February 24, 2023

Good shirt

A little tight but i have broader shoulders and think it will become a little looser over time. Love the material though and can tell its high quality. The length is good on the sleeves and chest.

February 23, 2023


I love this base layer. The fit is slightly slim which works great for me and to keep it closer as a base layer.

February 20, 2023

Great quality

I am a fan of Patagonia clothing, having used it for decades. It outlasts other brands and performs quite well. I am especially keen on their company ethic.

February 15, 2023

Too tight in the arms and chest

The model wearing the size medium is 6'1". So I got the small but it's way too tight in the armpits, and too tight in the upper arms as well, and a bit in the chest. It's too bad, I love the item but can't possibly wear it. I'm of average build, slightly broad.

Response from Patagonia
February 22, 2023

Hi Ron! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear the crew was too tight in the arms and chest. Feedback like this is crucial to improving fit for future seasons so we'll share this with our design team. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

February 14, 2023

Great base layer

Comfortable and warm base layer. Use it mostly for skiing currently. True to size. Keeps you warm and manages heat/sweat well.

February 12, 2023

New favorite shirt

Fits great. True to size.

February 11, 2023

Great function and fit

As always with Patagonia products, a great fit as well as function. Keeps me warm without causing me to overheat, even when doing strenuous work.

February 11, 2023

"Most Best" Baselayer

Capilene has been my go-to baselayer for decades. It is the gold standard.

February 9, 2023

Gr8 shirt

I don't have a single bad thing to say about this shirt. The fit is perfect for me. Not skin tight nor is it baggy. Sits just below my waist line. Oh and the hang loop is thumbs up.

February 9, 2023

Super comfortable

Great, light base layer. I bought two and basically live in them with or without a second layer. I did expect it to provide more warmth, being described as a mid weight base layer, knocking off one star. Still, its a favorite, super comfortable garment.

February 7, 2023

Great Travel Shirt

I order one of these and I plan to add some more to add to my travel clothes. Great fit and was comfortable all day, it makes a great first layer to be warm in cooler months.

February 6, 2023

best base layer

Fits well, breathes well. Thumb loops work perfectly when putting on the next layer's shirt. Crew neck is a nice change from the zip up version, I have multiple of both. Warmer than silk or tight poly. It's a must-have for me in cool to cold temps.

February 3, 2023

Bring back the waffle knit!!!

I don't understand why you replaced the waffle knit with this. This product is very mediocre.

Best Cold Weather Base Layer

Material and workmanship excellent and fit exactly true to size. Always great for cool to very cold weather.

January 26, 2023

The best

I have several of these and wear them as an under layer to work every day in the winter.

January 24, 2023

Excellent base layer

I have two sets of the capilene mid weights(tops & bottoms). I find that I use them more than my merino base layers. I particularly like the odor control. The tops have a good sleeve & torso length, & stays tucked in. Very comfortable against the skin, & slides easily under layers. Dries quickly if wet from sweat. For the bottoms I ... Read Morelike the high waist, leg length is good. Overall a very nice base layer.

January 21, 2023

Perfect weight for base layer or along in milder weather

Great base layer for various activities. Ware it mostly with just a vest around the house & add a hoody for outside walks or treadmill in the garage.

January 21, 2023

I use as a sleep

I use as a sleep under shirt. When worn under fleece, it provides perfect warmth.

The cut is slim, the

The cut is slim, the fabric is thin and not as substantial as previous iterations. I love the idea its from totally recycled materials but fear it wont last due to the flimsy nature of the fabric > talk to me in 5yrs, Ill tell ya how it does

January 19, 2023

Perfect mid weight shirt!

This beats the first generation by miles. It will catch snags easy, but I really like this base layer, which you can also wear a shirt alone.

January 19, 2023

Great base layer and great

Great base layer and great to wear by itself.

Hubby loves wearing the shirt,

Hubby loves wearing the shirt, warm for its weight, on his trail runs.

January 11, 2023

Great but the tags??

I love this material. My favorite base layer. Knock off one star because of the three huge tags attached to the inside of the shirt at the waistline. It's like a mattress sized set of tags and Patagonia says they don't recommend cutting them off b/c it'll void the warranty!

January 8, 2023


I take blood thinners and seem to be cold much of the time. I wanted a lightweight inner layer that would be warm and comfortable. This shirt fits that description perfectly. My wife says that it washes well (doesn't dry it in the dryer, but it dries quickly). The price is a little high for an "undershirt" but hope it will hold up fo... Read Morer a few years!

January 8, 2023

Perfect next to skin.

Perfect next to skin layer, listed as midweight but feels lightweight. Great for high aerobic activities. Previous version I had was a bit short in length but this seems perfect.

January 7, 2023

Like the camo look , comfortable, warm without being too much so

Fit is good , which at 5foot 7 inches and 200 lbs , is not always easy . Sleeves fit well , I did not have to alter the garment. ( which I do if sleeves too loose ). Great for winter , soft material , good action fit , like the camo look .

The best!

i have been wearing patagonia for over 20 years. their products do not wear out! Fit is great, looks really good, very comfortable!

January 2, 2023

Perfect base layer

I hate being too hot. This base layer provided the perfect level of warmth for winter hikes (temperature in the high 30s, low 40s).

December 30, 2022

I LIVE in Cap Midweight Crews for 3 seasons

I really don't know what I would wear day to day in Fall, Winter, and Spring if Cap Midweight Crews did not exist. If the weather or occasion dictates, I layer over them. Of course I have more in the closet than midweights but I am throwing these things on all the time. I do be miss older versions that had a more stylized neck with a little tr...

December 28, 2022

Great Piece

Great baselayer. I tend to run warm and usually get too hot in the heavyweight tops, so this fits the bill. Cozy and lightweight for layering!

December 27, 2022


Absolutely the best baselayer out there! I have 2, perfect for layering for hiking, skiing, camping and everything in between!

December 27, 2022


Husband loves it! He got the camo colored one. Very happy!

December 26, 2022

Great layer

Feels great against skin and terrific under a heavier pile item. I thought it would be heavier but am pleasantly surprised by the warmth - will be good for all around use. Normally a S or slim M, this is loose in slim M and a touch long.

December 26, 2022

Very Warm and Comfortable

This is warm and comfortable as you'd expect from most base layers. What makes this better? The thumb straps! The sleeves have little straps that go around your thumbs so as you're pulling on your other layers, the sleeves stay in place.

December 24, 2022

Great piece of clothing s

Great Baselayer Perfect Midweight

Used daily as baselayer for skiing. Usually with an R1 air as next layer. Often wear this combo for work too. Slim fit in large is perfect for me; love the thumb hooks for initial layering.

December 20, 2022

Very well built

It fits well, is durable, and is warm for its weight. Very happy and plan on ordering more in additional colors.

December 13, 2022

Light Weight

Great build quality and fit, but not a mid weight.

December 10, 2022

Runs long in the arm length

During the Michigan winters I like to typically wear two layers on my arms when in the house. The XL size fits my chest and waist fine, but is a bit too long in the arm length.

December 7, 2022

Comfortable and nice layer

I like the fit, I'm 6'1" and I got the XXL so it would fit loosely and be easy to tuck in when layering. I also wear it casually as a comfortable shirt that is a little baggy and light weight.

December 5, 2022

Tech-Casual Crew-Neck

Opening the package on this base layer Crew-Neck you can quickly tell it is shirt technically designed for warmth. It does not disappoint in the warmth category as a base layer.

Perfect garment

I wear this instead of a long sleeve T-shirt. It has a comfortable fit and offers warmth when needed. This garment has a wide temperature comfort range and provides warmth outdoors without overheating when I come inside. For me it is a perfect base layer

November 8, 2022

Excellent general purpose shirt

I have been wearing these shirts for decades. As a forester, hiker, backpacker, and climber, I have found that they outlast most other outdoor clothes and help maintain heat balance.

Very soft and comfortable, consider sizing up

May 28, 2022

New and improved!

I have been wearing Capilene for years. This new shirt is significantly improved. Patagonia has improved its sizing; I am 61, 175 lbs, and this shirt in large is perfect for me. The texture makes the shirt warmer and more comfortable. Patagonia is still the gold standard, and this shirt demonstrates why.

May 16, 2022

Poor quality stitching

I've had numerous threads in the wrist hole openings come undone and pull out. Seems like the manufacturing on this product is extremely sus, just can't recommend Patagonia anymore the same way you could a few years back.

Does the Job

Good fit, great base layer and snag free.

This is a much slimmer fit compared to an R1 Air of the same size. Because of that I only wear this as a base layer.

Comfy but Not Tough as Nails

I love the Mid Weight Capilene fits snug, soft against the skin. Great for strength training in the gym or wearing around the house/farm in cool weather. One pick...the fabric will snag on a rough edge and strands of fiber will loop. Cut the loop and you got yourself a hole. So great garment, but not tough as nails.

Comfortable but short sleeves

Sleeves come a little too short.

Excellent!! Consider ordering a size up

I usually wear L with all Patagonia (regular fit) Patagonia. All slim items- I size up! This one is a great piece and no difference. I ordered in xL and its awesome

May 14, 2021

Just right!

I cant say enough about mid-weight Cap Crew! These are my pajamas, my go to first layer, and comfortable enough to wear from the 60s down to the frigid temps.

April 6, 2021

Nice baselayer

Im 63, 185 and have a slim/athletic build. The Large fits well. Sleeves are long enough though the body could perhaps be a bit longer for my height. The material is warm but also pretty thin for a mid weight piece. Works well as a base layer. Works well alone so long as there isnt a cool breeze - cuz its gonna cut right through it.

April 5, 2021

High Quality Material

Purchased my last Capilene Midweight Crew ~10 years ago and loved it. This one is just as good, if not better. Expect to have this one for 10 years, too.

I like the slim fit and the thumb loops, for casual wear this makes it quite cozy even when worn by itself. As a baselayer it does great, used it with a Nano Puff when it was below 30 outside and was quite comfy. I love the feel of the way this is woven, though be warned if you have cats that their claws will easily cause pilling (or catch threads... Read More). I wish it came in more colors, love the versatility.

love the company and what they stand for. but everything here runs big. I'm 5'9", average build and usually wear a medium but I'm always a small with Patagonia. However, some smalls are tight at the armpits, like this one. Mediums are way too wide.

This is great feedback! The Midweight Crew is a slim fit, which is likely why it feels tight. You'll want to check each product to see if they're "slim" or "regular" or our most generous "relaxed" fit for guidance. Feel free to reach out to our [Customer Service]( team if you'd like any measurements.

Already love this shirt. Amazing technology. Runs a little tight as it should. Keeps you dry and warm but then doesnt make you sweat when you warm up. Highly recommend. Terrific quality. Designed extremely well.

Not as good as previous versions

I bought this same layer back in 2016/17. It's one of my favorite baselayers. Perfect fit, comfortable, looks good, and works for any season. I figured I should buy more since I like it so much. However, the newer model feels much different. It feels a bit thinner, but the main issue is the sizing. It's much smaller. Very tight around the... Read More armpit area. I'm 5'8" 160lbs so I'm not big. If you're around that size I would recommend sizing up. It's still a good layer and I will use it, but had I known this beforehand I wouldn't have bought it

Good layer but tight fit

I bought this same layer back in 2016/2017 and it's one of my favorite layers. I decided to buy a couple more hoping it would be the same thing. Unfortunately it runs smaller than the other one. It's pretty tight around the armpit area. I'm only 160lbs so I'm not big. A medium shouldn't be this tight on me.

Go larger if you have an athletic build

Keep in mind if you are a broader athletic build you will need to go a size up

Great product. Keeps me warm all day at work.

Basic layer

Great fitting and warm

The fit is a tiny bit snug but in a good way. The feel of the fabric is very comfortable and the thumb loops make it nicer. I've been wearing it on and off alternating with the warmer weather capilene long sleeve.

Warm and comfortable

It fits nicely and its comfortable! I like hiking in it as a under layer.

I wore this out and bought a second

From the first snow (Central Colorado) through June, this bad boy is on my body every day I'm outside in the hills. Hot on the skintrack? Strip down to this, it looks fine. Sunny, but breezy up there at 12,000? Put it under the Pati Triolet shell, you're comfy. Mid-winter powder laps with a high of 5? Basically a requirement.

Nice addition to not having to wear outerwear like a jacket!

I have about five of these base layers....however, no matter when or where I shop I can't get a large in camo. The store where I shop or online is ALWAYS out of size large every since 2019.

Warm but doesn't feel good on the skin.

I like the warm of this but I wish it is more soft like merino wool blend. Also just like other patagonia cloths for me, small is a little too small and medium is too large.

Comfortable & Warm

An added perk is the loop in the collar for hanging purposes.

Fantastic product. Super warm. Well made... What more could I ask for?

Bought this for hiking the pct. It was what I wore at night and on cold mornings. Amazing product... Nice fit. Solid quality. A+ would recommend.

almost perfect - with a little tlc.

I like this shirt! Fit, fabric and features are all good. The thumb loops are handy for layering without the sleeves pulling up.I did need to problem solve one issue. The shirt maintained a sour smell after washing. Pre soaking in 1 cup white vinegar before washing solved that problem.

Great quality, all day warmth!!

I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a quality base layer. I frequently use this shirt for skiing and hiking. It's mid-weight is perfect for colder weather because it is easily layered but definitely warm enough on its own under a t-shirt and my coat. On warmer days its breathable enough that I have enough of a layer on to st... Read Moreay warm but not over heating! The matching mid-weight bottoms are just as amazing.

A better product.

This is lighter than the product from last year but that makes it even more versatile in my opinion (and I have three of the 2019 version). The cuffs are not as loose. The shirt functions as a second skin, just awesome.

Great but for the tags

For whatever reason in the last year or two Patagonia has started putting 3 tags on the left side of the shirt near the waistline. This is fine if you are not tucking in the shirt but in the PNW im using these as a baselayer and tucking them in and then the tags create a hot point. I can and do scissor them off but that will sometimes leave a littl... Read Moree nub that also rubs. No clue why Patagonia has made this design decision as they arent making it w/their capilene Air Crews, for example. Anyway, great shirts, i wear them all winter long but the tags knock off a star.
