We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

Not "butter soft" like they were a couple years ago :-(
Since I basically live in these as my pajamas during pandemic, I recently purchased another pair. Unfortunately, they do not have the "butter soft" feel that my pair from a couple years ago has. I'm not returning them, but I'm disappointed. :-(
Great Fabric Update
I replaced a couple aging pairs of midweight Capilene bottoms with new midweight offerings. Thus far, I feel the new bottoms are a step above the previous product. The material has changed to the newer diamond-shaped pattern and the waistband is now that of the Sender Boxer Briefs (a MUCH needed improvement). I haven't worn the bottoms in cold... Read Moreer weather just yet, but I reckon them to be as warm or a shade warmer than my old ones. The newer bottoms fit just as the others did (I'm a medium in both), but these appear to be a wee bit looser in fit. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the newer product. They're very comfortable, do a great job of wicking moisture and managing stink. I also have a midweight top in the newer fabric and all the above holds true for it as well.
I bought these to replace an older pair that was getting some holes from years of abuse. The newer fabric seems more durable, but still comfortable. My main issue with the newer model is that Patagonia seems to have gone to a more "generic" fit than in the past, with a higher rise and shorter legs. This design change was probably a busine... Read Moress decision to make their product more marketable, but it's annoying for us tall skinny folks with long legs. The "higher rise" really means a lower crotch, which translates to a limited range of motion in the legs. The fit isn't a deal-breaker, but just be aware that they'll probably ride up your calves a bit when taking big steps or sitting down.
Kept me comfortable and pleasantly warm to wear all day
MY original sets of capilene base layers (Manufactured in Ventura, CA) have been slowly wearing out. (Especially since moving to the PNW in 2016) I wear the bottoms continuously thru the Fall and into the late Spring.) I have purchased these as a replacement for these original sets. They have proven to be both comfortable and very durable. I expect... Read More these newer sets to be just as comfortable and durable.
Warm, functional, updated
The pair of Capilene Midweight Bottoms that I purchased was through a Patagonia sale 2 years ago. They are size M and I am 6"0', currently 160 lbs. These fit perfectly right now, but they were quite tight when I was 180 lbs. 2 years ago. The fit was slightly small, but it appears that has been adjusted in the newer rendition of this layer... Read More. I also, notice a slightly scratchy feel that is not as soft and stretchy as other Capilene I own, but I see that too may have been adjusted in newer styles. Mine had a waffle grid pattern, and I see that there is more of a diamond pattern in the current photos. It looks softer just from the pictures, ha! That being said, I love this layer. They are suitable for me for now, and being on sale they were a steal. They keep me warm on cold morning hikes, and runs, as well as late night climbs and at camp. They've only ever really been too warm rather than the other way around! Not a bad problem to have. Would purchase again!
Great Materials, Baggy Fit
I got size small and medium to try out, and found that the waist and leg lengths of the medium fit perfectly. However, the long underwear was not form fitting at all in the calves and thighs, which is what I had been looking for. If patagonia made mens long underwear out of this material, that was form-fitting, I would wear it in a heartbeat.
Warm and comfortable
Ive been pretty much living in these since I got them. They function as great to hang around the house as they do as liners under your hiking pants. The midweight is perfect for the Seattle area in the fall and winter. I am 63 220lbs, athletic thighs and the large size was on the money.
Great quality, dries very slowly
I am a commercial fisherman in Alaska and I bought the mid-weight pants and the half zip top. The items were very comfortable and the material felt really nice, but moisture was a huge problem. The garments seemed to soak up most of the moisture, which did leave me fairly dry but the items were SOAKED. It would take 24 hours on average for the item... Read Mores to dry even hanging in the engine room leaving me without base layers to wear.. honestly would not buy again, another crewmember had a cheap pair and they outperformed patagonia
Waist band rolls up - Thigh area very loose
Alpine Patroller - Trying to return this base layer. By the end of a shift the waist band is rolled up and does not hold base layer up. Other brand offered to Pro Alpine Patrollers does not have this issue. Lays flat for full shift - very stable. Separately, the thigh area of this base layer is very loose. This creates a bunching of fabric that is ... Read Moreuncomfortable. I am 205lb 6ft 1in.

After a month or so
I wear these long underwear every day for work, doing construction. They don't itch or bunch at all, I can't tell I have them on (except that my legs stay warm). It hasn't gotten very cold yet, daytime highs in the 20's or above. I have a very low body fat index, so I need all the help I can get! I'll be interested to see ... Read Morehow long the knees hold, since I kneel on the right (and wear holes in my pants there). I love the feel of these, though, and appreciate Patagonia's priorities and way of running their business. That, and the fact that I expect these will last, justified the price.
Ms Capilene Midweight Bottoms
Overall a well made, comfortable base layer. Outer clothes slide over the material with ease. Don't feel a tugging sensation on knees and the comfort and warmth is top notch. Only reason for the 4 stars is in the product description it claims to have a locker loop for hang drying and the sage khaki didnt come with that feature. It doesn't...
