Great shirt. Super comfy and light. Packs down small and fits true to size. Im probably technically a M but I like my T shirts a little more snug and sometimes I feel like their shirts are a tad large. Only issue with the shirt is I wore it camping last weekend and had three separate locations have a small thread come out which left little holes....

Warning of Wearing on Long Runs or w Running Vest
I have ran 3 ultras in my Patagonia High Endurance gear. I bought this tee to wear for an upcoming ultra and wore on one 10 mile training run. After the run I have SERIOUS chaffing burn in R armpit. I have never chaffed their (or anywhere else) on a run. The other issue is that after only the one 10 mile run, that the shirt has visible piling where... Read More the lower running vest strap goes across my body. I wear my merino wool shirt (from other maker) and it has never had this issue.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on our Capilene Cool Merino Shirt. We're sorry to hear that you experienced chaffing while wearing it, it could be that a different size could make all the difference. As far as the pilling is concerned, friction will always be the main culprit, and unfortunately that is not always avoidable. The good news is a sweater stone usually does the trick!

6'1", 175. Originally ordered a medium since that is what I wear in almost all of my Patagonia shirts. Fit was definitely slim and a bit tight across the chest. It would have been fine for active wear and using as a baselayer but I wanted a little more versatility from a casual standpoint. Large fit better in the chest if not just a tad l... Read Moreong in the torso. Shirt is super soft and breathes well. No stank after 3 hikes on consecutive days. Love the blend. Haven't had it long enough to comment on durability but have not had any issues.
I'm all for a super lightweight shirt but this was so thin it was sheer.
Hi Caleb, we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We are sorry that the fabric was not to your liking. Our products are backed by Patagonia's Ironclad Guarantee so you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it. For a comparable baselayer, the Men's Capilene Cool Daily Shirt may be worth consideration.
I bought this t-shirt for my husband. You had them a few years ago and couldn't get the merino wool for a while. I am so glad they are back - this is positively the best men's t-shirt ever made. They last a long time even with daily wear and they always look immaculate. Never a wrinkle - the fabric drapes and has a low sheen- it covers an... Read Mored the fit is perfect. If you want to look you very casual best - wear this shirt. I also like your woman's longer down vest. Covers your backside and longer under tops.
Ive bought previous versions of this shirtusually when I see a color that inspires me. The last one was a few years ago, in a dark loden green/turquoise. This one is a deep rust. The fabric is greatfeels mostly like merino, its soft and moderates temperatures and perspiration well. And I deeply appreciate being able to find XS at Patagonia to fit m... Read Morey small, slender frame. Unfortunately, they typically run out of stock quickly enough that I don't even see them before they're gone. I still have the previous shirt, and there's no comparison in cut and execution. The older shirt I would describe as a tailored T-shirt. The seams are flawless and smooth. The neck is a better fit, and lies perfectly flat, as do the tops of the sleeves. The sleeves are noticeably longer, which I prefer. For many years now, the sleeves on Patagonias short sleeve shirts, in general, remind me of what was available at places like Pennys when I was growing up in the midwest. I thought they were too short and tacky thenstill do. Short sleeves that come up just shy of the cubital crease look and feel much better to me. Shirts that end with the deltoid just don't work for my taste. You emailed me, and asked for a detailed review, and this may be more than you bargained for. But while Im here, lets talk about color. The colors you choose for women's clothing are great, but for some reason you seem to think that men should be stuck in drab, depressing Microsoft blues, reds, greys, black or moss. Or maybe a screaming chartreuse or Microsoft orange for variety. To me, this is mistakenly giving men the short end of the stick. Loosen up! My recollection is that Patagonia didnt suffer from these tendencies in the Kris McDivitt days, and there was a very distinct shift at some point after. But I wasnt paying attention that closely. Because of the general quality Patagonia has tended to offer over the years and appropriate sizes for the small people, I tend to rely on them more than others. But I think there are some ruts that could be departed from, and I imagine youd be surprised at the reception. Could be mistaken, but you asked. Now that I'm finishing up, I see that the page has removed apostrophes and em-dashes from my review. Hopefully, that's not intentional.
Great summer shirt
I'm not built for humid heat, despite having lived in the tropics and places with miserable summers like Atlanta. So, I'm willing to splurge on lightweight, hot weather clothing for daily use and for travel. My shoulders are on the upper end of most mediums, so a large fit for me. The shirt dries quickly and although the mercury hasn'... Read More;t gotten too bad yet, it seems to work well enough that I plan to buy another.
Wool for the Summer
I've been wanting to give merino t-shirts a shot for a while but never pulled the trigger because of their high price tag. Once Patagonia came out with them I decided to give it a go and I'm stoked that I did. These are super soft, lightweight, and don't build up odor even after wearing multiple times. Like others have said -they are... Read More quite thin and don't exactly scream durability, but time will tell. I'd also note that they are definitely slim fit, so if you're like me and mainly looking for an everyday t-shirt, I'd go a size up. I tend to prefer a looser fit so I returned the Medium for a Large and I am about 5'8", 150lbs. Overall, great shirts for being active and travelling in warmer weather!
Decent Merino Tee
Pro: --Merino wool --Fits great --Great construction Con: --Too expensive --Too thin Overall I like it, but I just with it's a little heavier.
Thank you for the review on our Capilene Cool Merino Shirt. We're glad you have had some positive experiences with it. The weight of the shirt was designed to help with keeping you cool and the shirt breathable. We're not sure what you were intending on using the shirt for, but if you wanted something warm and heavier, we'd recommend checking out our [thermal weight line](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-thermal-weight-baselayers).
Thin and easily torn
Tore this the third time I wore it when I was trying to take it off. It's a great workout shirt except it doesn't have a lot of stretch so when I was removing it I tore a hole in it. Bummer.
Hey Andrew, sorry to hear this tore while you were taking it off! Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it if you are unsatisfied with its performance.
Not sure what kinda of magic Patagonia uses to make these shirts, but they are warm and cool at the same time. Every time I pull over my head it feels like quality and luxury at the same time. Never retains odor and looks great in a casual setting. Treat yourself and add this to your closet. You will not regret it.
Nothing special but is a good shirt for any type of active wear. Due to how thin it is I wouldn't wear as a casual item as it is semi transparent and can show some nip outline. The shirt will absolutely help keep you cool and you can tell it is made of merino due to its ability to control odor. I think I still like the original Capilene cool b... Read Moreetter.
What happened with the stitching?
So glad to see the merino Capilene is back after a ?two? Year absence. Fabric seems similar to the old one, a good thing. The elegant stitching of the old style is gone, as is the offset style. The offset let you wear the T without abrasion from a backpack, and it looked much more sophisticated than this one. I tried a few other brands while the me... Read Morerino Capilene was not in production, didnt like that they were heavier or had boring stitching. This new model has the same stitching, and I dont like it.
