Patagonia Women's Long-Sleeved Capilene® Cool Daily Shirt

True To Size
July 10, 2020

Comfy and Cooling

The fit is generous but tailored rather than boxy making it more flattering. Sufficient arm And torso length; sits just right, below the waist so no gap when leaning forward or bending over.

Light weight shirt for sun protection

I purchased this shirt with the intent to use it for some extra sun protection during the summer and am very happy with it. Its light enough to wear in 90+ degree weather without overheating and easy to bring along on any trip.

July 10, 2020

Comfy Fit and Works

I love this shirt so much I bought a second for me and a gift for my daughter. Bought it for the sun protection, which works well. Ive worn it boating and hiking and have stayed comfortable and cool. Fit is not too tight but not too big. Sleeves are a bit long on me but they stay rolled up.

what's not to love

what's not to love about Patagonia!!

July 10, 2020

Wonderful fabric and design

I love the fabric. It feels soft and I wear it to protect my skin from the sun.

July 10, 2020

Light Weight and great sun cover

Got the Navy Blue and Feather grey, love the colors. I am ~5'4", 125-130 lbs and these fit perfectly. They are nice lose fit (not snug but not baggy). I wanted something I could wear for my bike rides in Boulder CO and these are the best sun cover plus feel breathble. Have been using these for my evening walks as well and will buy again!

July 10, 2020

Cooling and sun protection!

I purchased this after a Spring sunburn while biking under the Colorado sun. After wearing it running, hiking and biking I bought 3 more! It really does cool when you wear it, better once you start sweating. I don't wear sunscreen under and no burns. I bought some for my boys for boating and fishing and they love them too. They are loose fitti... Read Moreng and I really like that as I think the air flow is important for cooling.

July 9, 2020

Cool and comfortable

I ordered two of these shirts. They are comfortable and cool even on hot days. I wear them anytime I will be in the sun. Love these shirts!

July 9, 2020

Very pleased. Ordered two.

At 5'1" and 112, I probably could go with an x-small, but I was so pleased with the fabric and comfort that I didn't want to return the small. I wear this shirt a lot. Cools and protects in the heat. Love it.

July 9, 2020

Great shirt

This is the perfect shirt for boating/surfing when youve been in the sun all day and just want some relief. You stay cool, are protected from the sun, and the fit is great. I sized up to a M for a looser fit. Pairs great with baggies for a water friendly outfit.

July 8, 2020

Great invention!!

This is my first piece that has spf protection, as I live in CA I thought I would need one for super lightweight, and feel amazing on the skin.washed it twice so far and they hold up pretty well. I would purchase more in the future, if the price was a bit cheaper. Otherwise, summer must have piece!!

My go-to tennis shirt

I wear this to play tennis outdoors for optimal sun protection. The material is great in the sense that I don't overheat--even in 90+ degree weather--and it doesn't snag with my tennis elbow band on top of it. (Velcro can really take a toll on fabric.) My only complaint is that the neck opening could be slightly smaller. I had a fly fishi... Read Moreng top from Patagonia that kept me cool, and protected the base of my neck, but this top does not. Please start making a non-hooded SPF shirt again with better shoulder/neck protection. :-) In the meantime, this is a good alternative as I own 5.

July 1, 2020

Comfortable and great for summer!

I wanted a long sleeve shirt to protect me when running in warmer weather. I adore this shirt! It is a favorite now. I want to wear it for every run! I debated on getting it becuase of the price, but so worth it. I may buy in every color now.

June 29, 2020

wonderful top and color- blue. Love this top for walking and everything else.

Great Patagonia quality- no surprise. Have been wearing Patagonia for 25+ years.

June 26, 2020

Love it!

Love it. Just beat skin cancer (Merkel cell carcinoma). I feel this is my shield from the sun. The shirt breaths, comfortable and now purchasing for family members

June 26, 2020

Light weight

Love this shirt! You can wear during AM morning run, or as under layer for skiing/ snowshoeing. I prefer sizing up for this shirt as I like it to fit loose. This is my go to for all seasons.

Purchased this shirt as a base layer for going out on the water. Love! Very comfortable, the material breaths, And youre getting sun protection.

Great protection. Great Fit. More Colors PLEASE!

I have nothing but love for these shirts. They are my go-to option for summer fieldwork. I would love a few more color options (sans graphic) to add to the 5 I own!

June 26, 2020

Light and silky

Purchased for lightweight sun protection and cool morning walk/runs. It delivers. I like a roomy fit, so bought a size up. If you want a more fitted look buy your normal size.

June 25, 2020

Please more colors

Hi, I have 3 this long sleeves, and I love them. Could you please make more colors, well at least bring that green color back!!

June 25, 2020

Love the fit and comfort.

Roomy and breathable.

June 24, 2020

Blocks the Sun

As a 6 mth Merkel cell carcinoma skin cancer survivor, I don't go outside without it! I feel more at ease with the protection of your shirt to continue to block the sun's harmful rays. Thank you for an incredible product. I have a few and now are getting them for my family members.

June 21, 2020

Really keeps you cool!

I recently went on a backpacking trip with my friends (while social distancing). I wore the blue capilene and didnt notice how hot it was until my friends said they were burning! I also wore the shirt for two days and it didnt have an odor. I have this long sleeve in black, grey, and blue, and Im quite impressed at how cool it keeps me!

June 21, 2020

Perfect Long Sleeve Layer

Perfect fit. Lightweight close to skin layer for spring skiing and cool morning runs. Love it!

Perfect shirt for sheltering in place

Great shirt. Fits perfectly. Cool in recent 90 degree heat. Great fabric. Washes easily in cold water and it dries quickly. Comfortable and good range of colors.

June 17, 2020

Great sun protection

I bought this shirt to use for sun protection when running and hiking in Southern CA. It is lightweight, breathable, sweat wicking and provides total sun protection. The fit is slightly loose and not slim . I love it and have it in 3 colors.

June 17, 2020


The shirt is great for outside and is breathable.

June 17, 2020

Protects from sun

Purchased this in white. I wear it while hiking and climbing in 80- 100 degree weather. Works great for sun protection and to keep me cool. I wear this a couple times before washing and it holds up fine to smells. The only thing- the white stains easily and I don't know how to get it clean properly. Currently, I'm washing this through the... Read More normal washer/dryer and the dirt, sweat, and stains seem to stay on this fabric. This is a huge downside, because I have only had this shirt for a couple weeks and it seems very dingy. Would not recommend this in white, but recommend the product for the sun protection benefits.

Thank you for the comments and we are happy to hear the functionality of this shirt is working well. Nonetheless, we know those stains are likely frustrating. Please visit our product care [page]( for info on stain removal and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Nice length, loose fit, my goto shirt for pretty much everything from running to biking, to hanging out at home.

June 17, 2020

Too Large

I was surprised by the sizing as I always have worn your shirts in a medium. The quality didn't seem the same which saddens me. I have loved your shirts and hope you will change back to how they used to be.

Comfy soft

Super soft no irritating seems. Bought two for rashguard use but have worn for walks as well. Cool fabric.

June 3, 2020


I purchased one shirt for a hike. It kept me cool and covered. I purchased two more.

June 1, 2020

Please carry more XXL options!

I love Patagonia. I love this shirt. I don't love that you only offer XXL in a few items. Please, make more size options! Would love to see some more colors in this too since the XXLs are almost sold out!!!

May 25, 2020

Summer Comfort / Sun Protection

This shirt is my go-to in the sun and when temps reach over 70°. The feel is light but silky. The cut of the neckline is perfect (not a fan of v-necks or low cut shirts in the sun.) Moisture-wicking isn't even noticeable; it's just an effortless but cooling process. I have the graphite blue and only wish there were more primary color opti... Read Moreons as I loathe kiddie pastels. Super reliable and the color/sizing/seams remain the same since day one despite the fact that it endures the extreme cycles of my washer/dryer almost daily. Great investment.

So much nicer than the old Capilene Team Crew!

I rarely buy anything full price but I wanted a white, "slippery," thin shirt to wear underneath my Micro-D 1/4 zip fleece. This is perfect! Soft as silk, without the annoying, scratchy sleeve seams of the old Capilene Team Crew shirts. Slides under sweaters and fleece more easily than the Mainstay LS shirt. I love that the sleeves are no... Read Moret skin tight. Also, the white color is perfect - not see through at all. Now if Patagonia would just make this shirt in a mock turtleneck, which would be perfect for wearing under itchy, wool sweaters!

April 30, 2020

Love it, make other colors!!

Love my Pineapple yellow shirt so much buying a white one. PLEASE make this in lt green, lt blue, lt pink!!!

April 29, 2020

So Comfortable!

I am a little obsessed with this shirt. It feels great and fits perfectly. The material is so comfortable and it does a great job when Im outside sweating or just sitting in the office. Absolutely worth every penny and I will definitely be saving up to get some more.

Patagonia Women's Long-Sleeved Capilene® Cool Daily Shirt

Don't like X-Dye. That is a more masculine look. Please offer solid, nicer or brighter colors. I would buy more if colors were better. Nice comfortable relaxed fabric. This is regular fit, and ample, not slim fit.

Need More

Shirt is pretty decent. I own it in short sleeved and now got it in long sleeved as a gift. Unfortunately, what I've noticed with most of Patagonia's clothes is the women's cut have some mysterious slight scoop neck (contrary to popular belief, a lot of women don't like that). So yay! My sports bra creeps out occasionally. That&... Read More#x27;s fine though, I can handle a little scoop in a well made shirt. However, when coming back to buy more (it really is a nice shirt, wicks well, etc) the colors are blue - the one I own -....white....gray....and black. Hmm. Hop over to the mens section and what do you know, color choices appear. Might have to suck it up with that boxy, slightly too long men's shirt, just to wear something not monochromatic. Please offer some more color choices Patagonia, your loyal female customers will buy them.

Wife loves it

Bought it for the wife as a first layer when walking. Itvwasca hit.

Terrific shirt

I love this is so wearable - for underlayer or dress it up. Perfect fit, fabric and style!

December 16, 2019

Great shirt

Truly a shirt I could wear daily. Room to move but still nicely shaped. Just what I was looking for!

December 5, 2019


These are THE BEST shirts! So light weight and breathable. Quick dry. Sun protection. Can be worn multiple days before washing which is great for the environment too.

December 4, 2019

My new favorite shirt!

I absolutely LOVE this shirt, so much after wearing it I purchased more in different colors and have already recommended it to my friends. It’s perfect for every day, yoga, the gym, travel.

December 4, 2019

Sadly, women’s cool daily NOT like men's

I visited my local store to ask about the fabric of the cool daily and they had the men’s in stock which felt like cotton, but is a performance fabric. YAY, just what I wanted, and I was assured the women’s version would have the same fabric. Ordered it, and DANG, when I received it, it was the same slick, silky feeling performance tee I already ha... Read Moreve. Truly bummed, because then I had to return it to the store or pay the extra shipping - which I hate doing - oh AND I had already gone to the store to find it in the first place!! Wish the stores could stock at least samples of what’s online? If you’re looking for performance tee that feels like cotton, this is not your shirt!

November 26, 2019


The shirts are supposed to be black... but they’re almost brown. I ordered them for a trip so I did take them with me but didn’t wear them. I have a couple old ones and they’re still black. These new ones are not the same quality as far as color. Really disappointing. Here’s a pic of the old one on the top, new on the bottom. And it’s larger.

So soft and light

I love this shirt. The fabric feels is so soft and light, it’s amazing next to skin. I have it in two colors. The gray is lovely and perfect for sun protection on a hot day. The blue is vibrant and beautiful. It’s ideal for just about any outdoor activity spring, summer and fall. It keeps the sun off, is lightweight and dries quickly. I’m 5’4” 120#...

The tops are exactly what I was hoping for. They fit well , breath well and wash well. They keep their shape.

Fabric defect

I bought 3 of these shirts in the spring of 2019 and loved them. This fall, I ordered the black and the white shirts. The fabric is defective--it has permanent creases that won't come out. Please go back to the fabric you used in the spring of 2019!

Favorite Running Shirt

Just wore this for the New York Marathon on a cool day with sun and wind and it was perfect. Ordered it after getting one free in my race packet and wearing it in the Grit Series half marathon in cool to hot conditions. It feels silky, looks good enough to wear anywhere and works, my new favorite long sleeved shirt.

Cool even in 89 degrees + humidity

Got this for a kayaking trip in Florida. I sunburn easily but the UPF 50 kept me in good kit and even though the shirt has long sleeves, I didn’t overheat. Going to use this running as well - super soft and comfortable.

October 17, 2019

Silky soft

I love my long-sleeved Capilene Cool Daily shirt so much I bought two more! Perfect for layering. So light you can barely tell you are wearing it! Great camping and hiking companion.

This fabric is amazing. The shirt cut is very comfortable. Live in the humid and hot Southern part of the USA, and this shirt is in constant rotation.

lightweight, breathable, UPF protection..favorite shirt

this is a great shirt. I use it to go jogging outside when the sun's out. very light and cool and doesn't stick to sweaty body. also priced less than other competitor UPF-rated products. I think it would be great for hiking, too

September 27, 2019

Great shirt

I got this shirt because I love wearing long sleeve shirts even when it's a little toasty outside. Of course, it is not as cool as a shorter-sleeved shirt, but the capeline cool definitely does a great job of not clinging or making you feel like you're going to overheat. All in all, love it.

I cover my arms because of my religion. The Captilene Cool daily is a great summer solution, especially when I’m wearing a sheer over layer or a shorter sleeve top, I don’t get too hot.

This shirt is awesome! The fabric is lightweight and comfortable. The sleeves allow for full range of motion without bunching up.

Light but warm

Wore this on a breezy August day on a boat off the coast of Maine. Didn't feel sticky when it was hot and gave me some sun and cold protection otherwise. Really like it. Will have to get a couple more in other colors.

September 3, 2019

Best hot weather shirt ever

I love this shirt so much I have two. I run very hot, and it keeps me cool hiking in 90 degree weather. I have arm tattoos that I'm trying to keep out of the sun, and generally am trying to protect my skin from the sun more, so I literally wear this shirt every camp and hike trip. I love it so much!

September 3, 2019

Great cool weather shirt

I love this shirt! The fit is perfect and it is very comfortable. I also love the versatility - I can wear it in a variety of temperatures.

September 3, 2019

To review or not to review...

Excellent quality but I ordered a Large (because I have a jacket that's a Large) and, surprisingly, that was too big -- really baggy with too-long sleeves. And I didn't love the Viking Blue color. I returned this item and ordered another Capilene option in Medium.

September 2, 2019

Great shirt

Light-weight, quick-drying. Excellent for sun protection. I have used it for tennis, gym workouts, cycling, and at the beach and pool.

Too tight when I run

I like everything about this shirt except for the sizing and purpose. It is a running shirt and I have only worn it once since it is too restricting when I run.

Passed an epic test

I bought this shirt specifically for a rim to rim hike in the Grand Canyon in August.

I wore that shirt down the North Kaibab trail, thru the Box, jumped in Bright Angel creek, then the next day got up and hiked out of t... Read Morehe canyon on Bright Angel.

August 19, 2019

Liked it just not enough to keep it.

I ordered medium and it was slightly baggy for my 36A chest, which may be just the fit some are looking for. I could feel the seams in the shoulders just a bit more than I wanted to.

Beautiful shirt (Capilene cool daily shirt)

It’s true to size. I ware a small to medium shirt, I wanted this shirt to be warn over my base shirt, for a little extra warmth! The shirt is soft and comfortable! I do love it!! the only thing that would put it over the top is if it had thumb holes so it would not be able to pull up on your arm if you were riding a motorcycle or mountain bike!

Not a bra for larger sizes

I'm still looking for the original camisole shelf bra Patagonia used to sell...I loved it and this one is definitely not it. While it's comfortable, the straps move toward one's neck and there is just not enough support for anyone who requires a D cup. I would recommend for one who is small breasted, but not for others.

I like my clothes to fit a little loose (reference 55+, 5’4”, 150) Large is perfect - a little long on the arms but I like that for the added sun protection on the top of my hands when the sun is intense. I’d like to see it in Navy Blue!

Great Product!

I love this shirt! I have fair skin and it's exactly the coverage I need. I've it running & kayaking.

Great Shirt!

Love the weight and feel of this shirt. It is lightweight enough to wear in warmer weather to give sun protection but also is good as a layer when there's a little chill in the air. I bought this shirt for a recent trip to Alaska and wore it on many mornings and during hikes.

Lovely light weight and functional tops

The material is silky to wear, attractive to the eye, and seems breathable, esp for sun protection fabric. I like the cut and style also.

Great LS for Summertime

I recently went on a 2 week trip to Colorado, and hiked most days. This shirt really got a workout! And didn’t stink after a few days of use. It was cool enough to wear during the warmer afternoons, while keeping the sun off my arms. The sleeves are actually long enough for my ape arms. It fit great through the torso without being too clingy or too... Read More baggy. I’ve had sun shirts from other manufacturers that were so thin I wouldn’t wear them without another T or tank underneath, this one worked great on its own or layered over another top.

Best UPF 50 Shirt Ever

The Long-Sleeved Capilene Cool Daily Shirt is the best UPF 50 shirt I have ever worn. It's lightweight and soft. It also wicks away sweat, dries quickly, and the sun protection is effective. I am 5'2" and 113 lbs. The XS fit perfectly - great length (not too short and not too long), not too loose and not too tight. I will definitely ... Read Morebuy more.

Outstanding Shirt

I took my shirt on a 6 week bike trip. I only took 3 shirts but this sun shirt ended up being worn almost everyday. Excellent sun protection and even when it was 105 I was still amazingly cool. Love this shirt and am going to buy one for my husband!

Based on the reviews, I bought 2 of these long sleeve tees for a hiking trip to Switzerland recently, and could not be happier. I loved the fit, feel, sun protection, and odor control for high sweat hiking. Will definitely be purchasing more colors.

My new favorite shirt

I love these shirts so much I now have 3. They are lightweight but seem very well made. I think they run true to size, but ordered a large to have a nice loose fit. They are great for hot days where I'd like protection from the sun on my shoulders and arms and work great for casual wear or a trail run. The sleeves are stretchy enough to pull u...

These shirts are the BEST for summer!

I love being able to cover up and protect against sun while not being too hot. They're silky and comfortable and flattering. My favorite!

Cool daily; needs a hood!

I’ve worn my BFs cool daily hoody and got spoiled. It is so cool in the heat, it’s uncanny. I liked it so much that I bought the women’s version. I really prefer the higher cris-cross neck of the men’s shirt, and the hood much better for my fair skin. The men’s sleeves were long- but covered the backs of my hands just perfect! More coverage equals ... Read Moreless sticky sunblock on my hands, throat and sides of my neck. I will buy a men’s small and hope it fits! I’m 5’4, 114lbs, average in most ways, and a small (wms) fits me comfortably loose.

I've used this shirt as a base layer snowboarding in Wyoming, and I've used it to stay protected from the sun working in Missouri. This shirt has become my go to field shirt. I work about 8 hrs a day in the sun in a hot and humid environment. This shirt keeps me cooler than my short sleeve shirts, does an excellent job at protecting me fr...

Keep Cool Capilene woman's shirt, a yes vote

At last! a long sleeved sun block shirt I can wear comfortably in the sun in the summer. At 77 years old, after years in the sun, my arm skin is like brown leather. Being a fair skinned red-head, that's not a good sign and the skin doc said its beyond time to take precautions against the sun, especially since I'm outside almost every day ... Read Morein the sun. I've tried other sun block shirts and they are just too hot in the summer, I strip them off, down to my sleeveless under shirt soon after venturing out into the orchard. But with this Patagonia shirt, the medium size is roomy in the sleeves (important) and the body and cool overall while protecting me. Being a light solid color (white or aqua) it really shows the dirt but that rinses off the fabric pretty easily (for me it would be better if the shirt were patterned to show less dirt). I must buy more!

New fit

The fabric on this shirt is my favorite, it’s very soft and never itchy, and feels cool in hot weather. It does not dry as fast as some of the other base layers but I prefer this soft fabric to the others. I like the crew neck of the new design, but the designers took away the armpit gusset? The fit is not flattering anymore, plus the whole shirt l... Read Moreifts up if you raise your arms. I tried this on in the store but didn’t buy, I’ll stick with my old version.
