True To Size
July 11, 2020


Amazing quality of shirt. From a hot day on the beach to deep jungle, this shirt keeps you cool. The UV protection is a huge plus.

July 11, 2020

Comfortable fabric

This shirt fits very well and the fabric is very comfortable. It is lightweight, feels cool, and keeps my arms from getting sunburn when working outside all day.

July 11, 2020

Super versatile

This shirt works really well in both warm and cool temperatures. I wanted something super light and durable that I can take with me as a technical layer on hikes or wear while walking around town during a sunny day. Highly recommended if you're looking for a layer that can adapt to different scenarios.

July 10, 2020

Great for hot weather kayaking

Love this shirt for kayaking. It's barely there, almost like silk. When the going gets too hot, I squeeze a wet sponge over me. A medium is perfect. I'm 165 lbs. about 5'10"

July 10, 2020

Ultra comfortable

This is now my go to summer shirt. Not only is it the most comfortable shirt I own it is also SPF 50 so I don't need to worry nearly as much about the sun when in a kayak or on the trail. The shirt stretches and gives where needed and I was pleasantly surprised about how well it breathes.

July 10, 2020

Perfect subtle shirt

This shirt has clean lines, an athletic cut, and is very comfortable and well made. It's a simple piece of equipment that makes day to day time in the hot Texas sun more pleasurable.

July 10, 2020

very nice cooling properties

love the fabric and cut of the shirt. Soft and cleans up nicely.

July 10, 2020

So thin and breezy!

So close to the feeling of not wearing a shirt at all. Even after a hard run this shirt dries quicker than anything else I own. It moves with me without fail.

July 9, 2020

Cool, comfortable

Daily shirt is just that, daily. I could wear this and be comfortable, keeps me cool even in hot weather and humidity. Dries quickly and easy to pack.

July 9, 2020

So versatile

I love this thing. I work out in it. I sleep in it. It is crazy soft. Being a redhead, I love the long sleeve sun protection without being too hot. It dries very quickly and has also become a go to top for sleeping. My toughest morning choice is hood or no hood. Only complaint would be please give me more colors!!

July 9, 2020

Awesome shirt

Great shirt. Super comfortable. Breathes well and comfortable to wear in a warm, even hot weather. Ive already bought a second.

July 7, 2020

new favorite shirt

I wear a medium in T-shirts and a small in button-down/dress shirts, and a small fits me perfectly. I'm 5'9" and about 165 lb. I originally bought this after getting super sunburned a couple weeks ago with the intention that I would wear it primarily for watersports and backpacking, but I like it so much that I have been wearing it ... Read Moreall the time. It's very breathable, enough so that I can wear it on sunny 95F days and still be comfortable in long sleeves. The only thing I wouldn't wear it for is outside work; it's very thin and I doubt it would be particularly durable in rough applications.

June 30, 2020

Very comfortable

Comfortable and hip outfit for outdoor wear, especially for sun protection. I love it.

Wear only Capilene in the summer. Stay cool with UV protection

Perfect for cool morning and bright sun.

Perfect, Cool, Keeps Sun Rashes Away

Im a woman, Ive read the reviews for the womens capilene long sleeved, and was discouraged to buy it. I look over to the mens capilene long sleeve shirt, saw it was loose fitting (what I wanted).

Best summer shirt

It is the most comfortable shirt I've ever worn outside in the summer. It wicks my sweat, lets me feel the breeze, and keeps my skin out of the sun. It fits large like most medium shirts, my build seems to be in between small and medium.

May 25, 2020

Summer necessity

If you're buying this product you might as well buy 7 (depending on your laundry schedule). This is my go to shirt for the summer! I usually don't do the long sleeve route, but since this product is so soft and comfortable I don't notice it at all. I have the hooded version as well. I tend to not use the hood very much. Awesome shirt... Read More 10/10!

A little short

I want to really love this shirt...but...its a couple inches too short. Man, if this was a tad longer Id probably where this shirt 24/7 365 because it is super comfy!

April 18, 2020

Shirt could be a touch longer

I have 4 of these shirts, which are absolutely my favorite shirts. The one thing I would suggest, to make the shirts perfect, is if they were 1-1/2 longer. Whenever I bend over, my lower back is definitely seeing daylight. Other than that, I think they are great.

January 15, 2020

Prefer this fit over woman’s version!

I chose this long sleeve over the women’s due to its true crew cut neck and relaxed fit. The women’s is just too low cut for me personally. This shirt is ultra soft and comfy, great for any outdoor activity! I liked it so much I bought two! I just wish there were more color options.

January 3, 2020

Great shirt 👍

This shirt is made for performing at a high level. I've been wearing this shirt to the gym for awhile now and can't believe how comfortable and cool I feel when I'm breaking a sweat. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the sleeves wear just a bit short on my arms. I don't mind rolling my sleeves up though be... Read Morecause the shirt looks great either way. Highly recommend this product! I'm 6'2, weigh 195lbs and wear a size M.

Capilene Cool Daily Shirt

Great shirt. It’s comfortable and I use it as a base layer and on its own. Great sun protection when I’m fishing and a great shirt for work or play.

November 22, 2019

Cool daily

The cool daily is a silky shirt. Smooth to touch. Runs true to size. Looks great. Can be worn as a layer or on its own. Feels durable. It's dry literally as soon as you pull it from the wash. It's a great shirt. I need more.

November 18, 2019

Love These

I have Cap Daily hoodys and Cap Daily long-sleeve shirts. So, so comfortable day in, day out. They breathe/wick very well, protect from the sun and never smell ripe when worn for an extended period. A favorite to wear just about anytime. I'm 6'/190# and the large is perfect.

November 6, 2019

GREAT for the Sun

Live in Florida, and GREAT for outdoor activity. The 50+ UPF is a must here in Florida ... bought long sleeve

Cool Shirt

Great product, comfortable and easy to wear. Good for days at the beach for protection...

nice replacement!

this is truly a daily tee...I bought 2 to replace a silk weight version I put through the ringer for 16+ years...highly recommend as a base layer or everyday wear depending on temps and activity.

Extremely lightweight yet provides amazing amount of warmth! OK for me while Indoor / outdoor comfort for dry weather between 40-55 degrees comfort with no top coat, hoodie etc.

Capilene Long Sleeve

I super love this long sleeve. It works great under a warm hard shell or rain jacket or adds just bit more warmth under a hoody. It is effectively dry after the laundry is done.

Hi Hoy, we're sorry about the fit being an issue with the Capilene Daily Shirt you ordered. We 'd be happy to return or exchange for and item that works better for you. We'll reach out to you with more information on how to get that shirt back to us.

Feels so good!

Feels great, nice and light for hot weather.

September 30, 2019

Comfortable, soft, and love the sun protection

Very comfortable to wear, one of the best skin feel of any shirt I've had. Completely different from basic polyester shirts. The UPF fabric has helped both myself and my wife. She can get sun rash issues on her arm but wearing these shirts have helped with that. Sizing wise when I tried it in store the small fit better than a medium (I&#x2...

Long sleeve Capilene

Could not ask for a better product. I have 2 of the Ms Long sleeved Capilene Shirts and could not pick a better active wear product for Phoenix hiking, biking and for everything.

September 19, 2019

Great for most uses

I use this shirt usually as an undershirt (under a pilot’s uniform) for its SPF while sitting in a cockpit in the bright sun all day. For this purpose it had to not have any logo or design or words on it anywhere (except below the belt). It works great for that, though the sleeves are a bit short for me (my fault though as I am only 6’ tall but hav... Read Moree 36” arms). Recommended for most moderate and upright activities, meaning not for water wear, climbing or yoga (too loose for those). Two gripes: the tag on the inside lower left pokes me (solved with scissors) and it comes with WAY too much packaging, especially considering Patagonia’s admirable environmental consciousness.

September 16, 2019

If Only My Wardrobe Only Consisted Of These Shirts

I'd probably be the happiest person in the world if I only owned these as my shirts. Perfect for anything - River Trips, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Fishing, Under the jacket for skiing, or even casually at work or out on the town. I'm in love. Thanks Patagonia.

September 12, 2019

Too boxy

I would give this 5 stars except for the fit. The M is the right length but is way too loose/baggy, the S is the right trim but is too short. I would love to see an athletic cut for all the capilene cool tops.

Good shirt, a few issues

Pros: the shirt is incredibly light, and does an excellent job of blocking the sun as a single layer. It is cool, even in hot sun. I like the lack of distracting logo too. Cons: the sleeves were too short for me. I’m an average hiker in the backcountry (tall and lean) so I ordered a small. The torso fit well (even a bit billowy In the wind) but t... Read Morehe sleeves could have been at least an inch or two longer. The biggest problem was aesthetic. I ordered a white shirt (for maximum sun reflection) and it got dirty! Just from the dust of backpacking for 5 days, my crew had a running joke that I had a different shirt for each day of the trip because it kept getting darker and darker. I would definitely order one of the gray-tone colors next time to hide this. It did not wash out either, even after twice in the machine.

Great piece to have on as a lightweight base layer. Works great in the sun and keeps you cool...

Fantastic shirt

I use this for mountain biking. Long sleeve protects from the sun. The light material keeps me cool all ride long. My Patagonia gear is hands down better than my mountain bike big brand clothes. It's not even close.

September 3, 2019

Good for tennis in Florida

I bought the shirt for summer tennis in Florida. It's good for that purpose, keeping the sun off my arms. I wish Patagonia would make the shirt with a collar, so I could get more neck protection. And the sleeves on the large size are long for me (5-9, 170).

September 1, 2019

I love these shirts!

We recently traveled to the South (U.S.) in July and as I'm very sensitive to the sun but knew we'd be in extreme heat and humidity, wanted a shirt that was protective (long sleeves) but not hot. These shirts were all that and more! Feels like you are wearing nothing--or maybe something made from spider webs--they are so light and comfort... Read Moreable. Sometimes Patagonia stuff is cut too narrow for my broad shoulders and aging body, but these are not in my correct size (about 135lbs, 5'6", long-waisted, and a medium fit perfectly--even the arms and, like I said, I have broad shoulders. I'm also a 32DDD and there's no pulling in the bust). I've ordered several more and always take them when I travel. Was most recently on the Washington coast--these wash out in the sink and dry overnight (or faster), don't stink, take up NO room in a suitcase or any type of bag, and it's great to have the versatility of a long sleeve that works in heat or cooler weather. Cannot say enough good things!

August 31, 2019

great all around

I have been wearing these for the last couple of weeks. nice hand, light, great all around: biking, office, in the shop, everyday life.

August 28, 2019

Love my cap cool!

Great shirt to wear every day either by itself or layered with a base layer for warmth!

August 22, 2019

Better than being shirtless

On hot days, wearing this shirt outside keeps me cooler than wearing no shirt at all. It is surprisingly lightweight. It wicks moisture better than anything I've worn while also preventing your skin from absorbing heat. If you lightly dampen it before putting it on, it feels like an air conditioner every time the wind blows.

August 22, 2019

Sooo dope!!!

Absolutely love all y’alls gear. Fits incredibly, is comfy, and your brand is something I can get behind! Oh not to mention the style you’ll have if you buy Patagonia!

Ms Long-Sleeved Capilene® Cool Daily Shirt

I have several of these because they are an amazing piece of technology. I wear them instead of sunscreen on my arms. They feel cool on my skin in intense heat. They make a great base layer in cold weather too. They wear like iron but are soft as butter. I like the colors, especially the blue.

August 18, 2019

Handsome, Well-made and Functional.

My first 4 pairs of these shirts and I LOVE LOVE them. They are much better than the Trail version. Very soft, well-made, functional, practical ..... for every activity. My use of them - wear them to work with a solid white crew tee, to the gym, cat walking, running around in town, etc etc. Keep making them and add more colors.

August 16, 2019

Fantastic Layering Shirt

I have two these shirts and where them regularly. They are lightweight, breathable, and great for layering. I will likely buy more of them, but they need to be washed so infrequently because of the material they are made of that I always seem to have a clean one. Also, they are super soft and cozy. :)

August 15, 2019

Great hiking

My son uses the shirts for his hikes. He loves them.

August 15, 2019

Great shirt

I'll be purchasing another as this is perfect for hot sunny days when you need full protection from the sun and would rather avoid having to cover yourself in sunscreen. It also dries quickly and is one of the softest shirts I own.

August 15, 2019

Year round multi talented shirt

I have several of these long sleeved shirts. I particularly like this generation of material for its weight and feel. I use these as sun shirts when I am on the water as well as anytime I am exercising. I also particularly like wearing simple white shirts.

Great, but better if slim fit

This is an awesome shirt for hikes, runs, wandering in cities, or chilling at home. Unfortunately it doesn't come in slim fit like the capilene lightweight cool, but that shirt has other problems: it frays easily. This shirt is the way to go, but if you are slim it will be a little baggy.

August 13, 2019

Just what I was looking for

This long sleeve base layer has been exactly what I was hoping for. I have been wearing it all summer for hikes in the NH White Mtns and looking forward to using it all year round.

Sun protection that dumps moisture

I live in a desert climate with lots of sun and 90 to 100 deg summer temps. This shirt is super lightweight, full sleeve sun protection that moves moisture really well.

I love this shirt!

I really love this shirt! I bought three different colors so I can wear them whenever I am in the sun and need a light shirt. It is so comfortable and soft that it feels good to wear all day. The sweat wicks away fast and it is good to go in the water with. It is light and thin and just wonderfully made! Thank you!

As Good as Ever, Maybe Even Better

My original “flyweight” shirts, as they were once called, have lasted for twenty years and are still in regular use. The new shirts seem to be made as well as the old ones, with some improvement by adding a bit of stretch. These are terrific garments, worn alone in summer or as a silk-like base layer in winter.

Lightweight comfort

Using this shirt for UV protection in the west Texas heat, and it has performed well. Light, fairly stylish for performance wear, and comfortable enough to wear around the house as well. Has a fairly slim fit, so order up if you're on the larger side of the equation.

July 29, 2019

Too short

This shirt is good, and has the potential to be great. The material is very comfortable. The "Feather Grey" color has a subtle, flattering texture. I wish the torso and sleeves were longer. I also wish the neck opening was not so loose. Hopefully they will change those things in the next version.
