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

Great Shirt, Drying Cord needs revision - breaks after wash
I love these shirts and will keep replacing them as I wear them out. I live in Florida and can wear these on the hottest days and feel cool, and I can wear them in cool airconditioned spaces and feel very comfortable. I wear these in the ocean because they dry very quickly and keep my fair skin from burning up. Buy these, but don't expect the ... Read Morecord used to dry these shirts to hold up. They need a revision and strengthening.
Material science is top notch! Nips might say otherwise!!
First off I just wanna say I haven't had a bad product from Patagonia (yet). Lets first discuss the pros!! a) color matches University colorways and is perfect for tailgating in the cold! b) fit is loose with this line but fits my athletic bod perfectly! I would say true to size! c) use case: to hiking in cold temps! Even as a baselayer for... Read More skiing/snowboarding! b) thin but versatile I need to test it out on hot days but I see this as a fall/winter piece mostly! CONS: a) if you nip out this may not be the L/S for you! b) piling may be an issue but a special stone can be purchased to relieve this! c) great fit at the top but loose at the waist! - if you have a longer torso this would be great on you! - shorter torso may look wonky unless you have a built upper body!
All Is Well Save the Sleeves
Love this shirt except for the cuffs which I can't pull up much past my wrists. They're just too tight. Maybe with a little wear (and hopefully no tear) I'll have them around my elbows, but not new, not now. I'd love this shirt forever more if you guys just did the sleeves like you did on the sun shirts (with the thumb holes!). ... Read MoreNice and loose, please. Bonus points if you make a version with 3/4er sleeves. In light blue. with feet on it.
Fit review only
I have a 44" chest, 34" waist, 16" biceps (relaxed), broad shoulders (50" circumference), 33" sleeves. The XL fits perfect. Good through shoulders and chest. Not tight, not baggy, but just the right amount of room so the shirt won't stick to me when I start to sweat. Sleeve length long enough to not uncover my wrist ... Read Morewith arms raised over my head. Body length long enough also. That's a fit review only. Haven't worn this outside yet. It's too hot out!
Cool in Wool
The long sleeved Capilene cool merino shirt is a perfectly balanced light weight wool layer. I recently took it on a multi day canoe excursion and it provided perfect coverage from the sun while still being comfortable enough to paddle all day. As a bonus, it dried super quickly and didn't get that awful smell that synthetic knits get after a ... Read Morefew hours of sweat. I've recommended it to quite a few people already.
The perfect sunny day shirt?
Ive been wearing my shirt now for a week and I dont want to remove it. Ive layers it under a light tee shirt to contrast the color when I go out on the town. At the beach and in the hot Florida sun, its sublime. It regulates my temperature perfectly and the cools the suns effects on the skin and it lets the right amount of breeze through. I use thi... Read Mores as a base layer for mountain biking as well and think it may be the perfect base layer in any weather. The soft feel of the fabric is unlike anything. No wonder they are selling out of each size quickly.
Perfect casual shirt. More colors?
Amazingly comfortable shirt. Dozens of Patagonia purchases for distance running, I use this more for casual wear than as a base layer. Wear with sweats around the house or with jeans out - you wont take it off. The fit is slim and perfect. Have both l/s and s/s. The short sleeve fits 1000x better than the horrible boxy, loose fit of the Road To Reg... Read Moreenerative tee (the single Patagonia purchase Ive made I would describe this way). Anyway, for the Capilene Cool Merino shirts: Perfect, More colors please!
Pretty sheer fabric
Normally I feel that Patagonia sizes run large. I am 61 170 lbs and usually find I am a Patagonia medium. This one seems a tad smallish but what you might expect in a great baselayer shirt. The fabric is quite light and clinging so it is a bit too sheer for me. Although I am fairly well built, at my age I dont think many want to see me in something... Read More so transparent . I have this same criticism of a lot of performance shirt fabrics. My favorite so far has been the Cool Trail shirts which have a cotton weight feel to them. If I like it you can probably bet it will be discontinued. Haha.
This is my first merino light long sleeve from patagonia and its perfect in every way. I have an outdoor voices merino long sleeve and this absolutely trumps it. Thank you patagonia for your attention to detail. Lightweight for fall and spring layer and even in the summer for under 80 temps. Bought two colors just so I could make sure I had enough
The perfect shirt doesn't ex......
I wore this shirt while hiking in the southern Utah desert for 8 miles in 80 degree, sunny weather. This shirt keeper me cool and comfortable. It's super cozy and works well as a warm base layer as well. I'm so glad Patagonia found a way to source wool from a more sustainable method in order to bring merino wool base layers back.
I have a 260 Ice Breaker shirt which is nice in winter but wanted a lighter wool. The Capilene Merino is perfect for spring weather when around the house. Surprising it hold the heat really well while riding my bike,much better then my light weight Castelli wool top which I love too. The Patagonia top is the most versatile of the two.
This shirt is very soft and very solid for the price point. To be 65% merino and 35% polyester, it has the full capabilities of merino wool (wicking, preventing smell, and temperature regulation) and the lightweight feel of polyester. The Sage Khaki color is slightly lighter than on the site, as well as with a little dash of jade. Depending on your... Read More height and arm length, the sleeves offer lots of coverage; for me, they stop right at the radius on my wrist. I have worn this for work, riding bikes, around town, and the shirt still has several uses before it will have to be washed.
Took a gamble and brought this as my shirt for a 7 day bikepacking trip without testing it prior. It did wonderful in a range of conditions (drizzle/windy/sunny and 30-60F) and performed nicely as a base layer when it got a little too cold/windy for it to be worn alone. This shirt is more fitted (than say the cap daily) which is great for being a... Read More base layer. It packs small and is quite light for what it provides. But with that, this is a thin material so if you run cold and/or are in conditions below 25F then youre going to need a heavier base layer. I strongly recommend the cap air in that case. Oh and no smells :) Highly recommended as a technical shirt all the way to an around the house shirt.
Lightweight & Comfortable
Purchased expecting weight similar to past season's Nine Trails long-sleeved t-shirt, but is much thinner and stays comfortable into a higher temperature range. Back to the closer fitting collar, which is personally preferred, but not noticeable as the fabric is exceptionally smooth and comfortable. Size was exactly as expected for a medium.
