Ms Long-Sleeved Capilene® Cool Daily Shirt

True To Size
September 28, 2023

Great feel

I love the shirt. It is light weight which is great for travel. Comfortable and great to wear when active. As all Patagonia products is very high quality. Only issue the sleeves are a little long for a 5'7' person.

September 25, 2023

Multi use layer

Big fan of the cap cool shirts now after avoiding poly for a while. I went a size up for a baggier, breathable fit - i usually am a patagonia L but went XL with this. Works great for SPF protection in the warmer months, and i love it as a light extra layer over a merino t-shirt for xc skiing in winter. Great color, minimal branding, feels like silk... Read More, much more durable than merino for roughin it.

loose around the neck

I normally wear an XL for casual wear but when doing activities in the sun I like a looser fit around the body. When you jump up to the XXL for some reason the neck area also gets wider don't know why that is but it makes it look very sloppy. This is the 2nd time I buy a XXL of the Patagonia Men's Long-Sleeved Capilene and both times the ... Read Moreneck was too sloppy also letting more of your neck get sun burnt.

Dry Comfortable

I used this in a very hot weather in Europe, it was cool to touch, felt very comfortable, and looked great

September 5, 2023

Great shirt

Great all around shirt. Can use as a primary or base layer for active sports and simple but stylish enough to wear for at work or after at the bar.

Sleeve length

Received this shirt with logo as a gift. Loved it. Ordered the same shirt and size with no logo in blue. Fits perfectly in the shoulder as does the logo shirt but the arm length is a good 1-1.5 inches longer. Not a big deal but surprised.

August 23, 2023

Love the five shirts, short

Love the five shirts, short and long sleeved which I purchased. All Capilene Cool Daily and for active use in sports in which I participate. Would love to see a leader in the Outdoor Industry, such as Patagonia, use tear away tags rather than the four or five irritating nylon tags at the waist of the garment.

August 21, 2023

Favorite shirt in my stable!

I own multiple long and short sleeve version of this shirt and they are my go to every day. Feel amazingly soft against the skin, lightweight and perfect sizing.

Capilene Cool - Daily Wear LS Shirt

Outstanding casual, multi season, layering piece.

August 9, 2023

Super comfy!

I like the feel of the material on my skin. I also like that the sleeves cover my wrists. I can wear it for sorta dress or pajamas or 30 mile bike ride.

July 10, 2023

Not durable

Would not recommend these for backpacking or hiking. They're comfortable, but will not last more than a couple trips. Tears easily and stitching falls apart

Super light, Dries Fast

Have always been a fan of cotton t-shirts so The switch was an experiment, and it turned Out to be great. Soft, really light weight, and it sure dries fast. Will purchase more. Same goes for the short sleeve version.

Go to top in tropical weather

Great in tropical climates for sun protection and overall comfort

Super comfy material !

Im loving these shirts!

Very comfortable.

Put it on go. Checks all the boxes for functionality and still looks good on.

Most comfortable shirt Ever

This shirt is amazing. Super comfortable and cool in the sun. Easily the most comfortable shirt I have ever worn.

May 9, 2023

Go to shirt

I have nothing but praise for these shirts. They fit my body. In an XL the shoulders hit me at the shoulders. The length is just right. Not to tight. Comfortable. The quality is THERE. I love these shirts.

Billowy Perfection

I am 5'11" and about 200 lbs with a bit of a belly and the XL fits perfectly. I bought 2 and will probably buy more. I have the R1 Air in XL as well and the fit between these 2 is a bit different, probably by design. The R1 Air fits snugly while the best way to describe the Cool Daily Shirt is a more regular fit and it sort of feel silky ... Read Moreand billowy. It may be the most comfortable shirt I own, and I got a compliment from my wife which is rare. There is a really long tag inside the bottom of the shirt that I cut away with scissors but they should have made it tear away or omitted it all-together. There is a little well designed loop inside the collar for hanging the shirt which I really don't notice but I generally hate tags or anything in the collar area but this one is fine. This would layer well under a puffy but probably not well under a fleece like the R1 Air, which is probably designed to work best as a base layer anyway.

March 24, 2023

Just perfect!

I wear these shirts on a daily basis and they also make a great base layer for colder weather. I wear both the long sleeve and short sleeve shirts and will buy more once there are more colors! Love them!!!

March 18, 2023

Excellent quality

I purchased a couple capillene shirts for my husband for Christmas. He wears this shirt under his work shirt for hours every day. He is impressed with the quality and feel of this shirt against his skin. It is comfortable and the fit is right on. I ordered two more recently! I definitely recommend this shirt.

March 17, 2023

Buying more of these

Love the fit and feel and finish quality of this shirt. I will buy more... more great job!

Great for multiple wear uses,

Great for multiple wear uses, especially for sleep in an intentionally (on principle to conserve energy) cool home (53 degrees F).

Odd fit, long sleeves for short woman, stretched out cuffs

I've written other reviews on this shirt. I won't buy it again. Based on reviews, I think Patagonia ought to make different cuts, for tall slim people, tall thick people and shorter shorter armed thick folks too. So another thing I hate... The cuffs stretch out and will not stay up. Maybe if I was bigger muscled like I was when younger. B... Read Moreut now the extra 3 to 4 inches in length and the loose cuffs frustrate me so much! I want to take a pair of scissors and hack the sleeves shorter! I will eventually get my sewing machine out and hem the sleeves. I also think the shirt needs some extra torso length, even for my short 5'4" height. And bigger at the hips.

Perfect Fit

Perfect fit and looks good under a bomber jacket when out on errands.

February 27, 2023

Great fit for the larger torso

Perfect fit for 50-52 inch chest and long torso at xxl size. Love the feel and cut.

February 26, 2023

Very comfortable

Very soft and comfortable and makes a great base layer or a good lightweight shirt over a t-shirt.

I want more of them

Great shirt. Drapes nicely and feels great. Gets a little stinky compared to wool but otherwise it's aces.

Light weight but just right amount of warmth

This is a perfect layer for anytime year round. Like something a bit more warm in much colder conditions though.

an essential shirt

I bought my first capilene shirt about 4 years ago now i have 5. I travel all over the world for work. Airplanes are either hot or cold and these shirts keeps me balanced. When I get to my destination it works great for sun protection either at the beach. Or also works great to keep me a bit warmer when it is cold as a layered shirt. You can wash i... Read Moret in the shower at night and it will be ready the next morning and not stink.. 100% great shirt.

February 15, 2023


Great quality and very comfortable to wear. The only reason I didnt give it five stars is because the neck is a bit looser than I'd like.

February 15, 2023

Great, just one thing

This is an excellent shirt overall. Soft, light but durable, wicks moisture/controls odor. It's probably versatile enough to double as a daily wear shirt, too. There's just one thing, and it's a minor enough issue that I don't think it's worth docking a star. For the way the shirt fits overall (which is good), the sleeves ... Read Moreare slightly too short, IMO. Certainly not enough that it's not wearable, I was just expecting a bit more coverage considering it's a utility type shirt. Another than that slight issue, it's really great.

Very Comfortable

Love my Cap Cool Daily long sleeve shirt. Comfortable shirt that I layer with my Patagonia Sleeveless Down Vest. 30+ year customer that's always satisfied with its products.

Light and comfortable

First time I have purchased this shirt. Very light and comfortable, and fits well!

Extremely versatile

Perfect as base layer or just a top on cool days. Excellent product.

Real good quality. Controls body

Real good quality. Controls body odor well when wearing it for a few days at backcountry huts. Looks like it will out last me.

Gr8 all-around

This shirt fits like second skin. The material is soft and extremely comfortable. Can be worn throughout the year, by itself in the spring an summer and with other garments in fall an winter. U'll be happy with your purchase.

Runs small

I usually wear M size products but this one unfortunately runs small, the fabric is great though.

My return to Capilene

My body chemistry caused a falling out with Capilene 20+ years ago when I could not tolerate my own amplified body odor.

Love this Capilene long sleeve shirt. Casual and comfortable but very classy looking. My new favorite shirt.

Scratchy Stitching

While I wanted to love this, as I really wanted a super silky soft base layer for winter AND summer wear, I couldn't keep it on for more than 5 minutes as the stitching around the neck and shoulders was incredibly scratchy and irritating to my skin.

Long sleeves, short waist hem

I'm a gal, liking loose clothing and have over 100 vintage Silkweight and Capilene 1 shirts. I love love the ones made in the early 90s. They were soooo silky, utterly a delight to wear. As the years went by, the fabric got less soft and silky and now I guess this Cool Daily is the closest. And the sizing got bigger. This newest model has slee... Read Moreves which are made for tall folks, so 4 inches too long. I hate the long sleeves. I'll have to cut off and hem the sleeves. The shirt oddly is not all that long in the body. I do like the self fabric neck collar versus the old ribbed neck. I do like the Cool Daily short sleeve versions, in men's XL and womens XXL. I like the larger neck in the women's version.

January 5, 2023

Long sleeves, hate it with a passion

Sleeves are 4 inches longer then last capilene 1, silkweight models. I have over 100 vintage and used capilene shirts. I hate this shirt. Ought to be different models for different arm lengths. Going to have to cut off and hem.

Soft comfortable fabric

I selected this item for my husband to take him out of his comfort zone. Not his normal styling. And he was surprised when he liked it. I love the softness and the fluidity of the fabrication. Decided on size medium on this style for him because of the fabric. The medium was perfect.

December 29, 2022

Great Gift

Purchased this for my son for Christmas he really liked it

This is exactly the right weight for winter in Northern California. It's the most comfortable shirt I own. I wear it for days on end, and sometimes ad pajamas. I can't say enough good about this product.

I have one comment for

I have one comment for you. I bought several years ago the Capilene Base Layer - Lightweight. One of the features of this base layer was the thumb loops. I'm usually using several layers of clothing, so the thumb loops were very helpful. You should bring those back to this particular layer.

November 12, 2022

Awesome Desert Shirt

I am in between a medium and a large in typical men's T-shirts. I first tried a medium but I found a large fit me better because it doesn't stretch much, so even though my arms were the right length, when I raised my arms the shirt rode up on my belly. I think it stretches less than a cotton t-shirt and is probably meant to be worn loose.... Read More Once I got the size dialed I love it. It is a perfect material for the sun and hot weather.

Good shirt, but not like the original

I like this shirt, but the older versions had a strap at the end of each sleeve that allowed you to hook it onto your thumb which was great when you pull on a sweater on top. If you have the previous versions of this shirt, this new model does not have that feature, which is unfortunate.

October 25, 2022

Used for more than my intended purpose

Initially I purchased this for hiking and active outdoor recreational pursuits. But I began wearing while working around our small farm.

Perfect for warmer days fishing. Light weight and keeps you cool. Excellent for under layer on colder days.

Nice , comfortable, thin, long sleeve shirt.

I love the cool daily shirts- both the long sleeve and shirt sleeve. I wear them every day. Very comfortable. I only wish Patagonia would offer a greater selection of colors.

October 9, 2022

smooth and does not stink

BTW - as a personal choice I do not recommend, nice to let others use thier own uninfluenced choices. happy to see the non-stink additive works on the newer Capilene, can wear it a bit more between washings. Washing/content Tags on inside side seam have to be removed right away and completely - they are very scratchy.

September 30, 2022

Breathable and doesn't collect odor

This shirt is 1,000 times better than Nike's Dri-fit shirts that look the same. It's extremely breathable and you can tell it's high quality. I wore it over the entire weekend (lazy weekend) last weekend, and I swear this shirt did not have an ounce of odor on it. 10/10.

September 19, 2022

Exactly what I wanted

Wanted a long sleeved Capilene to wear while traveling/ on vacation. Easy to pack, light enough for summer yet it will keep you warm & looks good to go out in. Used it exactly for that on my recent end of summer vacation to the shore. My second Capilene shirt, both are go-to shirts. Cannot be happier. Fit was spot on.

September 16, 2022

Love the feel of this shirt!

This shirt hangs well and feels great.

Comfortable, Cool looking and Easy Care

I love these cool daily shirts, I must have bought 5 M T-shirts that are true to size, and this size L long sleeve - I am usually a medium, but I wanted something loose to lounge in and this slightly larger L size looks and feels GREAT - these cool daily's are the best

September 6, 2022

Great fit & feel

Terrific fit and comfort. Soft, not heavy. Can be a base layer or worn on it's own in warmer temps. Versatile, can be worn for just about any activity.

September 5, 2022

Do it all shirt

Comfortable shirt. Runs short in length. I had to go to a size larger. I will buy more.

used these every day I am an artists and wear these to most all things including openings. maybe better colors? also seem to wear out on tummy area--not a fat guy!! like them a lot maybe make some that are a little bit more ready for something a little more uptown to wear.

Sun protection

Cool, calm, collected. Sweet shirt for sunny, warm days. Keeps the sun off and the awesome in. Go for it!

August 8, 2022

Protects against the sun while staying cool in the heat

I picked the black color to minimize nipple visibility since the shirt is so thin. Despite the black color, the shirt still remains fairly cool in the summer sun.

Good lightweight base layer

Being from the south I need a light base layer and this one is very good. It seems a little heavier than those I was able to get a few years ago but still the best I can find.

All rounder

July 12, 2022

So Cool

This really brings you body temp down while keeping the sun off your skin. It is smooth on the skin, and not tight anywhere on the body, no restrictions. Would recommend to anyone out in the summer sun wanting to stay cool and not need sunscreen.

July 11, 2022

My favorite shirt

This shirt is amazing. I've never felt a fabric like this... so light, so soft, so smooth, but keeps the sun off completely. Comfortable all day and night, can't recommend it enough.

July 10, 2022

Could live in this thing

I could live in this thing. Will be buying more capilene products. Wore this on the beach every day. Great sun and wind protection and quick drying.

Comfortable fit

Super nice, lightweight shirt that gives me the sun protection without being suffocating! Highly recommend!

July 5, 2022

Cool Daily is a great name for it because I wear one everyday.

I have several that I rotate. I wear one almost everyday. I pretty much do everything in them. I find them exceedingly comfortable and just the right weight.

July 4, 2022

What I like most about

What I like most about this shirt is that it feels so cool in really hot weather. I wear long sleeves in summer for sun protection, and some of my shirts don't handle the sun and heat as well as these. They have a nice silky feel, and are absolutely comfortable. I have two and will be getting more.

Very light weight

Very light base layer or warm weather top. Nice fit, I have M with a 34 waist and it wasn't too tight or loose.

Feels dry all all of the time

I love this fabric and wear it continuously spring summer and early fall. No matter the activity level I feel dry and cool. My only wish is that it be a couple of inches longer so it would tend not to ride up. Still a great garment.

May 17, 2022

Sleeves are quite short

The sleeve length is quite short. When arms are extended, it rides up several above my wrists. It does not fit at all like the Mens Capilene Midweight Long Sleeve Crew Shirt. The selves of this shirt are much shorter.

Awesome shirt

Great shirt - very comfortable - super whisking with the sweat and super comfortable to mountain bike. The thinned and fit makes it easy to layer as well. Pairs well with the R1 for when there is a bit of a chill on the ride. Thanks Patagonia for the inclusive sizing - please keep it up it is greatly appreciated!

May 9, 2022

Super lite and comfortable

This shirt has been great on its own or a layer for hiking, mountain biking and climbing. I have bought 3 pairs - a few more different colors that are on hen darker side would be great - worth the money.

Super Versatile

I bought this shirt to take on a trip to Mexico where I knew the weather would be hot and sunny, so wanted a shirt that would give me some sun protection but could still be used for sport or to be casual. Truth be told, I bought two: one for running on the beach each morning and the other to wear around town. The shirt worked great for all uses, bu... Read Moret what sticks out most is the comfort of the shirt and the fact that I could run in it every day and the shirt just seemed fresh and clean even though I was sweating a lot in it. It's incredibly comfy and just a great all-around shirt. Don't hesitate to buy several!

Most comfortable base layer

I like the feel of this fabric and how it seems dry no matter what I have been doing. Delighted to see these in XXL now but could stand a couple more inches of length in the body. Even so it is by far the most comfortable base layer I have in any season

The Go To Shirt

Super go to shirt. I can wear to work (carpenter) for a few days in row w/o getting to ripe. Really good feel to the material and really well made with a clean fit

Very nice

Looks good and dries fast

beautiful and comfy shirt

This is exactly the shirt I was hoping for. I like the shirt so much I bought a second one exactly like it.

Soft, comfortable, and stylish

These shirts are extremely comfortable, and lightweight. The light and breathable material makes them very useful for all day wear in varying temperatures. I ordered three of the short-sleeve and three of the long-sleeve. These are now the only shirts I wear outside of work.

I got two of these, but wear the white much more than the blue. I use it for cycling because of the cool quick-drying fabric and high sun protection factor in Florida. I have worn it as a rash guard for the SPF in the water. It is light enough to wear as a LS SPF t-shirt if worn under a SS shirt and it looks good. I take it on every trip. The capil... Read Moreene, just like wool, seems to 'know' what level of warmth your body will need. Looking for an excuse to get another one.

Great fit, material and feel!

I love these shirts! They feel great and work as great base layer Or perfect to block the Sun

Go to LS shirts

My go-to long sleeve layer in CO and AZ, regardless of the temps. Perfectly comfortable in snow or stupidly hot temperatures, and the best part? They're a regular fit, which is a rarity in todays slim/athletic market, so they also make a great knockabout town top as well.

Capilene cool daily shirts are must haves. Super soft, quick drying, no funk. I wear them as base layers in winter for running or nordic skiing (dry next to skin) or as a casual shirt in the warmer months. Great for travel: they roll up in a compact bundle and no wrinkles.

Very comfortable

Very comfortable and a beautiful color. Sleeves are a bit long otherwise a loose comfortable fit.

Long Lasting

I usually chuckle when, a week or two after receiving a piece of gear, a request for a review comes in. It's use over many years is the proving ground. In this case I've worn a similar version of these capilene, lightweight, base layer shirts for those many years and commend their quality most important to me: long lasting usefulness. I c... Read Morean't recall one of these shirts that has actually worn out. They get holes burned in them from grinding or tending a fire, after ten years or so they loose some of their shape, work stains will ruin their presentability, may need a hole stitched. But generally, as most P. gear I have previously or currently own, is the hold up for a long time of hard use. Design changes that would make these shirts work better for me: longer in the torso to stay tucked into pants, longer sleeves to keep wrists covered even when reaching.

Great tee shirt

I use the cool daily shirt as a lightweight base layer. It is comfortable and keeps me dry and warm during winter walks.

March 15, 2022

Comfy again!

The old capilene Ts were very comfortable but eventually even they wear out! Bought two replacements last year and they felt like wearing the chopped up water bottles theyre made from! But they learnt and this one is great, Ill be getting a couple of short sleeves

March 15, 2022


The day after wearing it, I went back on line to order more but they were out of my size... super light, great for layering - I'll be buying more!

March 15, 2022

Sweet spot in the lineup

Bought this, a lightweight and a merino. Lightweight is great for sleeping in or as great base layer under my R2 tech. The merino is warm but a little thin and nippy. The daily is just right, feels great on its own on the beach or as a base layer in the winter

Great shirt

I just love these shirts. They keep you warm without bulk, move your sweat from your body, and never smell. Wonderful piece of gear.

March 13, 2022

Super comfortable

Love this shirt. Wear it as a base layer. Thanks for bringing it back.

March 12, 2022

Super comfy

Perfect for daily wear, work and play

February 27, 2022

Very nice fabric. I wish the neck of the shirt was a tighter fit.

Shirt has great fabric and fits well but I was the neck of the shirt was tighter. Everyone makes these T shirts will sloppy neck fits and the look terrible.

February 23, 2022

Very comfortable

I wear this as a base layer or as as casual tee. In both cases it keeps me warm and comfortable. It washes and dries well too, i.e., keeps its shape and no wrinkles.

February 20, 2022

Strange fit

The fit is really strange. Too baggy in the arms and torso, but too short. It's impossible to layer this shirt under anything because the arms get pushed up and you can't tuck it in.

Hi Jonathan, thank you for taking the time to send this review. We're sorry to hear the fit of this shirt isn't working for you! If you haven't returned it already we'll be happy to help you [return]( it.

Versatile and comfortable

I'm wearing one right now. Perfect as an undershirt, but also by itself (with pants, obv). I bought 2 so I can wear them more often. Great.

February 16, 2022

All weather

Love these shirts! I have 5 of them. Wear them alone or as undershirt. Great for layers.

These are great shirts. I have three of them and will be getting many more. As soon as my older lightweight capilene shirts wear out, I will also be using these for other activities -- outdoor ice hockey, cross country skiing, hiking, etc. Why don't you use this same material for lightweight bottoms that were discontinued a while back?

Good Looking

Thin and comfortable

This is a nice, thin, and soft long sleeve shirt that breathes great.

November 4, 2021


I have several of these shirts I use for hiking in warm weather. I LOVE the old ones. The fabric used with this new shirt seems more sheer and consequently the shirt has no body or shape to it. Very disappointing.

Love the light borealis green

I have the capilene cool daily shirt in both short and love sleeve and wear for walking dogs, running trails, and lounging around house. They do not retain odor, feel great against the skin (so soft), and are breathable. I love them so much I started buying for my husband. Latest purchase was the borealis green and the color is gorgeous! Please mak... Read Moree the short sleeve (and other products) in this color!!!!

Size could be improved / please offer in slim fit

Please make this in a slim. I normally wear large in the mid weight capilene which comes in slim fit and it fits perfect. I bought the large in regular fit on this and it was huge (slim not offered). So I bought the medium and its too short in sleeves and body.

May 13, 2021

Great lightweight shirt

Fits true to size. Great lightweight shirt for hot, humid weather.

May 11, 2021

Nicer material than older Capilene

This shirt fits good and feel better material wise than older (20+ years) Capilene shirt. Fits is good will see if it can stand the use over time.

May 9, 2021

Same great Capilene shirt at a more affordable price

The fit, material, and everything else is the same as the graphic versions of this. I own a few of the graphic ones and it's refreshing to have the plain versions which is more versatile for matching with multiple outfits. Great stuff at a more affordable price.

Super comfortable shirt, Hemp is the future.

I love this shirt, its nice, strong and good for the environment. Hemp is the future.

May 3, 2021

Comfortably warm ( but not too warm)

Now I have three of these and I use them for a whole slew of activities. Skiing , running, biking, camping , and work . And after putting it on I never give it another thought. Very durable .

This layer shirt is super comfortable and light weight. Works well for sun protection too. This version has looser sleeves than in the past, which you may or may not like better. Great purchase!

April 19, 2021

Super comfortable!

These shirts are super comfortable and I only wish there were more color options!

Great sun protection, almost not there

Super light and breathable, while offering good sun protection. Fit is good, with stretch for high movement activities. The antimocrobial finish works well to prevent the synthetic funk. And with all Patagonia products, I feel better choosing recycled, fair trade production. A really great piece of kit.

April 15, 2021

Next to naked

Light, wicking and nice odor management. The sun protection is also great. I have used it from running trails under the Colorado sun to ski touring on spring days. Slightly fitted in the chest but fairly relaxed through the body. I love how the neck isnt too tight. There is a bit more room in this compared to the capiliene base layer in the same si...
