Casual and Running

The capilene material is very comfortable. I use the hoodie for casual wear around the house and now working from home. I can also exercise/run in this as well.

July 10, 2020

Spot on fit

I keep coming back to Patagonia for there quality and fit. From their jackets to summer wear, the fit is always perfect and product is so hard to clean.... because I cant take them off!

July 10, 2020

Super Comfy

Great light-weight super comfy piece that provides protection from the sun.

July 10, 2020

Great fit, love it

Perfect fit for my body type (511, 200lbs), I wear it casual, a week or longer, take it out on hikes and it remains odor free. Love it!

July 10, 2020

Use in all activities

This is my favorite article of clothing. I live on the beach and wear it to cut the chill on cooler mornings and block the sun, but not heat up, during surfing, running, hiking and biking. I liked the darker color in the mens shirt so purchased it rather than a womens equivalent. It fits perfectly well. A great option for going from beach to ocean ... Read Moreor for mountain adventures. I could wear this shirt every day.

July 10, 2020

Super versatile and lightweight

Bought this for a trip to the Alabama beach and wanted something super lightweight with UV protection. The Capilene is exactly what I was looking for. Since the beach trip I have also used it hiking and biking in Colorado and it could not be a more perfect breathable layer.

July 10, 2020

Loose but not baggy

At 62 173lbs the fit was perfect for me. Its great in hot humid weather, drys quickly and is loose fitting but not baggy. Wish there where more colors.

July 9, 2020


I like the fit & feel. It is one of the most comfortable garments I have. Wear it for multiple uses. Active and casual.

July 9, 2020

Light,breathable and sun protection

What more could you want? True to Patagonias description, fits great,looks good and simply does what they say it will. Perfect on my kayak!

July 9, 2020

Cool but cozy

Great for a day at the river fishing or kayaking. Hoody allows for warmth when windy and good bug blocker. Super comfortable

July 9, 2020

Comfy Occasions

I title this comfy occasions because it can literally be used for any occasion you want to use it for, and be comfy! I wish I had more clothes that were this comfy. I find myself wanting to wear it all the time which is a good sign for a product.

July 9, 2020

comfortable sun protection

love the color and very comfortable even when it is sweltering:)

July 9, 2020

Versatile and cool

This is a perfect for sun protection. It keeps me cool yet covered. The hood fits well (not too tight) and protects my ears, back of the neck, and balding head quite nicely. I loved it so much after just a couple weeks I got another one. I especially love how versatile it is through changing climates. From hot, dry sun to chilly mountain nights it ...

Basically perfect, minor issues

I've had this hoody for about three weeks now and the only time I haven't worn it is when I'm washing it. I'm even wearing it right now. It's the most comfortable shirt I own and it has performed perfectly on a bunch of different hikes in different environments. Great as a light base layer in the cold, and also keeps me c... Read Moreool and protected from the sun in high heat and high altitudes. I'm 5'10" about 170 with an athletic frame and a Medium fits perfectly. I wish there were more than four colors to choose from! This isn't really Patagonia'a problem, more of my personal preference, but I only like the blue one. I want to buy one or two more but I don't want three of the same color, so more variety would be nice. Also it would be cool if this hoody had thumb loops like the Tropic Comfort, but that's not a total deal breaker for me. Definitely get it, you'll love it. I've already recommended it to friends and bought a couple for my girlfriend's mom and sister.

June 29, 2020


The perfect sun protection. Lightweight and breathable in hot temps. Just might have made the Tropic Comfort II obsolete!

June 27, 2020

Warm in winter and cool in summer.

I own 12 different styles of these shirts. They are perfect for the summer and great for the winter. And all activities. Seriously love them.

June 27, 2020

Simple and Functional

This is quintessential Patagonia gear - simple, functional, and well-made. I just used this on a weeklong camping trip in northern-Michigan along the shores of Lake Michigan and it performed well in both chilly weather and warm weather. It is also a great sunblocker and a surprisingly capable windblocker. The hoody is simple - no zippers, no pull-s... Read Moretrings, no pockets, no frills - just the basic essentials. That simplicity is really what makes it so special. Overall, just a fantastic piece of equipment for the outdoors. I am 5'10" and 165 pounds and the medium fits extremely well.

June 26, 2020

Comfortable. Dries fast


June 26, 2020

Lite, cool & sun block

Very light weight hardly know its on! Cool to wear and blocks the sun better than sun screen! No restraints, feels like climbing without a shirt!

June 26, 2020

Light, fresh, easy

Solid choice for a packable, comfortable, lightweight shirt.

June 26, 2020

Going back for more

Light material, fit is excellent

June 26, 2020


This is a most exceptional shirt! Waiting for a sale or %off email and will buy the rest of the colors! Doesnt stick to your skin when you sweat, loose and airy but fits well at the same time. Doesnt have that unflattering fall on my chest like some thinner shirts do!

June 26, 2020

Perfect fit and comfort

lightweight, super comfortable.

June 26, 2020

Keeps me cool

Light weight top. Great for running on cool mornings. I dont overheat.

June 26, 2020

Lightweight and crazy comfortable

I love this shirt. It has truly become summer here on the Western Slope of Colorado with the sun blazing down on us.

So comfortable

It is very comfortable for cool to warm day. It is smooth and soft to skin as underwear, and stretches without restriction over undershirts.

June 26, 2020

Most comfortable light weight hoody ever!

Love this light weight hoody! Put in on in the morning and wear it all day and the next if you wanted to. It almost feels like its part of your skin, so comfortable your hardly know its on. Two thumbs up!

June 26, 2020

Very cool on a hot day

Love it

Great sunhoodie

Ive had sunhoodies from a variety of companys. The Patagonia version is the best. Lightweight, soft, keeps the sun out! Its great

You need one of these

Awesome...please make more colors!

Ultra light comfort

Great shirt! I've been wearing it every day since I got it... perfect for that evening chill. 6'2 -195lb Got the light gray, liked it so much I went back for the darker one.

June 26, 2020

Great shirts!

The Cool Capilene hoodie and t-shirt have become two of my favorite shirts. I have two of each and where them regularly for any outdoor activity from walking to biking and climbing. They breathe exceptionally well, dry quickly and have a nice soft feel. I am 5'8" and 150#s; with Patagonia shirts, I am always right on the cusp between a sm... Read Moreall and a medium. With the Cool Capilene, I went with the medium to give myself a little more movement and am glad I did.

Flexible summer comfort

Perfect shirt for outdoor summer adventures in heat and a base layer for spring/fall months. Breathable, soft, comfortable

June 26, 2020

Favorite Summer Shirt

Very light weight and cool even in the sun. I am wide in the shoulders and chest, the XL fits perfectly. It's so comfortable and I have gotten several positive comments. I went back and bought another, I highly recommend.

June 25, 2020

Comfy cool!

I wear this sailing and paddling on SF Bay. MTB on the trails. Great SPF factor and lightweight. Im gonna order another one!

Cool and clean

Decided to make a concerted effort to be outdoors as much as possible during Weird Times 2020, while keeping my skin out of the sun. Im a big person, 63 and 215#, and while I usually borderline large and extra-large, I opted to size up into the XL to stay loose without being baggy. I bought one, and was so happy with it that I bought two more. Now ... Read MoreIm staying cool and dry during my familys daily hikes through nearby conservation areas, and I dont stink this hoodie up like I would a cotton t-shirt. Historically Im not a hood-up kind of guy, but I like the fit of this hood on top of my cap, keeping the sun off my neck. Looking forward to a full summer of this.

June 25, 2020

Good long sleeve summer shirt

I wear it comfortably during the hot summer. Perfect for outdoor protection.

June 25, 2020

super light

Love the shirt. Light, dries quickly, keeps me protected from the sun. Thumb holes keeps sleeves down in proper place in any activity. Hood adds extra protection when I need it from the sun.

June 25, 2020

Super cool on a hot day

I just wore this on a 100 mile bike ride in the sun it did it's job! And didn't stink that bad afterward!

Best Long sleeve shirt hoody ever!!

I absolutely love this hoody, Ive since bought two more and I wear them every chance I get

Great for biking.

Perfect Summer Sun Shirt

This shirt is perfect for wanting sun protection and not wanting a heavy layer. It fits into my bag with no issues so I can always carry it with me if I end up with more sun than I was planning on. Sleeves are a perfect length (just past the end of my wrist) so I don't worry about my arms being exposed as I push a stroller.

June 22, 2020

Money well spent

It is a great substitute for sunblock for those of us who will only ever dream of being tan. A more V shaped cut would improve the look, but the slight aesthetic adjustment is my only suggestion.

June 21, 2020


Perfect morning layer to walk the dog, also great bug layer in the summer

June 21, 2020

Perfect warm-weather long-sleeve

I love this so much I bought it in every color they make. Incredible product that's super breathable, not too hot when it's hot out, but a warm layer to add in the summer when the sun goes down.

June 21, 2020

Great Sun Shirt

The Capeline Cool Daily Hoody is great! So soft and comfortable and does a pretty good job of fighting odor. I wish they made these in the same fabric as the Capeline Cool Trail for a more casual look, that way I am not wearing the same fabric everyday

Just a nice simple and comfortable sun hoodie

Love this hoodie. Super lightweight, comfortable and cool. A note on fit for those who are slim with broad shoulders. I'm 6'0 165 (slender build) and have wider shoulders. The Medium felt fitted, more like a slim fit and the hem was about an inch shorter than all my tees and would ride up on me due to width. Even if wearing by itself the ... Read Morehem would be a little short for my liking. I also got the L and the fit is nice in the arms, shoulders and hem but is a little wider overall so fits somewhat baggy for me but that's ok b/c I bought for hot days and prefer more room rather than being fitted and clingy. So if wearing over a t-shirt, which is what I was going for, and you have a similar body go for the large. A super perfect fit for me would probably be something just in between but the L works much better than the M for me and still love the hoody. Simple and super comfortable.

June 20, 2020

Protects from sun and keeps you cool

I live in South Texas and it gets very hot out here, rather than apply sunscreen every time I step out I decided to buy a few of these shirts and give them a try. The hoodys material is soft, wicks away moisture, keeps you cool, and doesnt leave a strange odor. Great for working out, lounging, or heading to the grocery store, extremely versatile!

June 20, 2020

Perfect Fit

I'm 5'8", 145lbs; in-between a size small and medium. So finding a good fit is almost impossible. I read this shirt ran a little larger so I purchased a small. It fit perfectly in every way (neck, chest, waist, sleeves) and actually looks tailored to my size! It's very comfortable and light weight. It does well even against the ... Read Morehot and humid Texas summer. The hood could be a little "deeper" so it covers the sides of the face better and a there could be a few more color choices but that's the only criticism I have. I haven't owned it long enough to comment on durability.

June 19, 2020

Id wear this shirt every day if my wife wouldnt leave me

I bought a few just so it wasnt obvious I was wearing the same shirt all the time. Definitely the most comfortable shirt I own.

June 19, 2020

Perfect warm-weather long-sleeve

I love this so much I bought it in every color they make. Incredible product that's super breathable, not too hot when it's hot out, but a warm layer to add in the summer when the sun goes down.

June 19, 2020

Extremely comfortable

This might be the most comfortable piece of clothing I own. When it's hot standing in the sun, it cools you down, but when it's a little chilly, it somehow feels warm. Like magic, only real. The fabric is a little bit thinner than it looks in the photo, but it's perfect.

Light and Comfortable

Hoping this review helps someone stuck choosing between the day hoody options. Was having trouble deciding between this Capilene hoody and the Tropic version. Having now tried on the small size of both (I'm a slim 5'10") I can tell you this has a slimmer fit, slightly shorter sleeves, and a more form fitting hood. I won't miss ... Read Morethe lack of thumb holes but I do wish this hood was slightly baggier to help block the sun when I don't have a hat (like the Tropic one does).

June 17, 2020


Super comfortable and breathes easy. Highly recommend.

Good shirt.

This is a good shirt. Worn it several times hiking and working outside. The sun protection is awesome.

Much Inproved!

I have the 1st gen of the Capilene Cool Hoody, and the latest Spring/Summer 2020 iteration is a big improvement. The material is thinner and breezier yet retains all the same features and durability. The fit is also much improved with a longer hem, better cut, and WAY better hood. I wish they had more colors tho, the blue hue is extremely light so ... Read MoreI exchanged it for the gray.

June 17, 2020

Ok, but.....

Shirt is comfortable and fits great. Bought it for running, but I I have not enjoyed it in that regard - too clingy. Unfortunately even with casual wear the shirt picks up strong body odor and certainly only good for one days use.

Hi Roy, thanks for your review and we're really sorry this hoody isn't performing as you expected. Please feel free to return it back to us under warranty if you were looking to do so, but haven't already. Your feedback has been passed along to the appropriate team.

Comfortable summer long sleeve

This fabric is really awesome. The size is a pretty spot on for athletic build. Bought this shirt for kayaking and fishing but wore it running on a hot day to test it out.

Its almost as good as the Tropic Comfort Hoodie II. I wear this in all situations, just want more color options.

Great For The Sun

I got this for when I am out in the sun all day, for things like hiking, picnicking, being at the beach. It works great - helps with the heat of the sun and feels nice out, even in direct heat. (I wear it because I don't like sunblock, but want to protect against skin cancer)

Love everything about these shirts - super comfy, cool, versatile. Would like to get many more!

Amazing lightweight hooded long sleeve!

I was skeptical about these sun protection long sleeve shirts because usually they run hot no matter what. I was wrong about this one! I did some tests after buying this to see the effectiveness before I bought more. On 3 separate occasions, I did a 8 mile run (80F), 2 hour mountain hike (90-95F), 45min HIIT (80-85F), all under clear Southern Cali... Read Morefornia clear summer sun. I did all the activities while wearing a hat and with the hood up. I did not wear any other base layer under this top. This performed amazing. It didn't keep me cool, but it also did not retain heat. I was not bothered by the long sleeve aspect of it, nor the hood since it so light. Sweat wicking worked well, and I didn't overheat. Not bad patagonia, not bad at all. I will be purchasing more. I am 6'1 170lbs and have lanky arms whch makes it hard for me to usually buy any shirt. My true to size is Medium Tall, but most companies don't make tall sizes. I bought both a Medium and Large (too baggy) to test. I kept the Medium. With that said, I would say size down because the length of the torso and arms are long. Only negative thing I can say about this hoody is that the hood is super lightweight and flimsy, and will flop around or get blown around by a slight breeze. I don't mind it because I'll be wearing it with the hood up all the time to protect my neck from the sun.

April 29, 2020

Compare with Tropic Comfort, both good

I like this shirt as well as the tropic comfort 2. This one fits a bit more snuggly, feels lighter, and has fewer added details (hood button, reinforced hem, etc). Check out the model photos for each item, they're pretty accurate. I'm 6'0" 175lbs and the medium fits me well in both styles, but the TC is just designed to be a bit... Read More more baggy.

Essential piece of gear

This shirt has worked its way into my essential gear category from saltwater to alpine lakes.

I'm 6'1'' and 180 lbs usually wear a medium but I got a large so I can wear it over a R1 baselayer but I can comfortably wear it under a ski shell or jacket.

It's a sun shirt

5'10", 43" chest and broad shoulders. Sun shirts are a staple of those that recreate for work (and those that don't). I typically need to purchase a new one each season so I don't offend clients' olfactory. Typically, I try to find the best deal so I have worn a number of brands at this point. I would say if you prefe... Read Morer Capilene to other brands you will love this shirt. It's light, doesn't cling, the hood is generous. Fit is standard for Patagonia. I like my summer base layers looser fitting so I sized up. Ended up that the Large fit my chest and shoulders but bellows nicely at the waist. I really can't stand clingy shirts when I'm hot a sweaty. It will retain stink over time, but I have yet to find a shirt that doesn't. My only complaint and I recognize it may be mine specifically. The armhole seam is tight. It can ride up into my pits which becomes noticeable under a pack. All-in-all great shirt, can't go wrong if you need this type of base layer.

Should be could called Gold!

This thing is amazing. Worth its weightlessness in gold! Wore this every day on the Arizona Trail for 115 miles. Super lightweight, protected from the sun.

This thing is among the best of the Patagonia gear that I own.

PCT Approved

I wore this top pretty much 24x7 for 6 months while thru hiking the PCT this year (and it had seen about 100 miles before I started).

Apart from being faded by the sun the only sign of wear is a small hole in the right shoulder (and it was a tough trail this year, with a lot of snow, blow downs and overgrown trail). Some experienced hikers say don't buy expensive tops as they don't last while thru hiking and I certainly saw a lot of hikers fashioning tops with more holes than fabric - however, they obviously don't know about this top. I would definitely buy another, but my current one is still going strong.

Beat the heat, protect your neck, look good doing it.

Somehow this hoody makes me feel less hot than wearing nothing at all. The hood is a good size and stays in place. Keeps me from getting sunburned. Very handsome.

This shirt is a staple

This shirt is a staple for everything I do, it's the perfect layer for keeping you cool and protected from the sun and wind.

I sometimes sleep in it too.

My new favorite sun shirt

I’ve been using this shirt over the summer to fish and climb. It’s the coolest long sleeve shirt I own but in South Carolina it’s still a ls tee. Still better than wearing sun screen. Def recommend.

Sun Protection That Lasts All Day

River guides, whitewater kayakers, fishermen, and ultimate frisbee players who want to save their skin without all the chemicals will love this lightweight layer that protects the arms, neck, and ears from harmful UV rays. It’s my new go-to base layer for whitewater kayaking on bright sunny days.

Awesome Hot Weather Hoody with 1 problem

These capilene cool shirts are my favorite hot weather outdoor material. The way the material handles sweat, sun, and humidity while maintaining a good feel on the skin is incredible. They do have a big issue though - the fit. I have multiple version of the Capilene Cool, and every single one has the same problem of being too short. I am 6’3” 175lb... Read More with a tall torso, if these shirts were any shorter I couldn’t wear them because my waist would be exposed to the public! Size Medium. The hoody version also has extremely short sleeves when compared to the tropic comfort hoody. I have another capilene cool shirt in Large and it is also very short.

Ms Capilene Cool Daily Hoody

Great hoody that only gets more complements every time I wear it. I've worn it in the Midwest at carb day for the Indy 500, I've worn it on the coast in Oregon, and I just wore it for two days straight in the Hoh Rainforest on a 40 mile backpacking trip.

Loved it so much, l Bought a Second

Great shirt! Perfect for sun protection even on the hottest days! I’m 6’2” 200 lbs....bought a large and it fits perfectly.

I love this hoody! Super soft against my skin and with the minimal stiching, there are no issues when wearing a backpack all day. I just completed a section of the PCT and wore the same hoody all day, every day and there was NO SMELL!!! Also, I love having the sun protection. Great job Patagonia.

Best shirt ever.

I wear this to the beach and kayaking all the time. Keeps me cool and the sun off. Fits great. I love it.

Great shirt

Easy to carry, light weight layer. The material is very comfortable and breathable. Haven't used the hood yet, but seems like really good insurance for late hike warmth.

Go to shirt

This shirt is so comfortable and performs well in just about any situation. I’ve slept in it, exercised in it, had chill brews in it... the list goes on. Get you some.

No more sunscreen!

Wearing this hoodie to roof in the PNW this summer. I wear a baseball cap and pull the hoody up all the way then spend all day on a hot roof. I come home without a farmers tan and without the tips of my ears being sunburnt. Haven’t worn sunscreen all summer. Shirt is lightweight and breathable, easy to work in.

Cool and comfy!

Best shirt for everything summer. Wish it came in more Caribbean colors.

Best sunny day shirt ever!

I never pictured myself wearing a long sleeve hoody on a sunny day, but here I am wearing it EVERYDAY. Seriously, I took the 'No Stink' challenge and wore this shirt for over a week until I spilled mustard on it before washing and it made me a believer. Lightweight fabric, (Incredibly so,) that breathes but also provides as much sun prote... Read Morection as you need. Hiking, mountain biking, on the river and pool side, it really is the all around one shirt you should own.

Best Sun Hoody Ever

See title. This shirt is the best, i have 3 colors. I live in sun hoodies and these win.

cool daily hoody

Fits well, nice layer for sunny hot Texas summers and Colorado high altitude sun.

Ideal summer protection . Sized

Ideal summer protection . Sized correctly for 5 ' 11" ; 200 lbs.

Perfect for a sunny day hike

This has become my go-to summer sun outdoor gear. The material is thin (but still blocks the sun), super soft, a little stretchy, and cool. Even on a hot day in full sun, I don’t overheat — and in fact I put the hood on to further block the sun. It also does a great job keeping mosquitos from bothering me. I like it so well, I bought a backup! I’m... Read More 6’2”, 175 lbs and the medium fits me pretty well. That said, I do wish the sleeves were an inch or two longer. I think the large would have been too big, but didn’t try it.

Sun protection 👍👍

I love the cut and the functionality of this hoodie. Great sun protection for time in the high mountains. The only thing I don’t like about this hoodie is that I make it smell horrible after only an hour or so of wearing. Alas, synthetic fibers.

Love not wearing your 50+ UPF surf wear instead of sunscreen

I purchased a couple of your 50+ UPF shirts for my recent trip to Hawaii and they kept me protected from the sun better than sunscreen ever could. Great product that protects me from the environment and protects the environment and me from the chemicals in sunscreen.

Capilene hoody

Use it while fishing . Great sun protection. I love it

Absolutely Amazing

Female here- I’ve had a men’s small now for awhile and I absolutely adore it! It’s rather baggy on me (I typically wear a W’s XS- so it is technically true to size), but so incredibly comfortable and I basically just want to live in it. It’s super soft and lightweight. Washes easily with no issue. And I haven’t had any issues getting too hot outsi... Read Morede in it, even with as hot as it’s been getting here. I’m also incredibly excited a women’s one has been released!

Fantastic piece

Not much to say. It's super comfy even in very hot weather, buttery soft, and WAY better than sunscreen. I've worn it for about 3 days straight without developing any stink (an impressive feat for my sweaty and generally smelly self). FWIW - I'm a 6'2" and a 36 sleeve, and the sleeves on this hoody fit me fine. I wouldn&#... Read Morex27;t hate it if they had another inch on them, but they're more than adequate. Highly recommended.

So Light So Comfortable

This hoody is my daily driver at work. It is very comfortable, and unlike my other Capilene shirts, the Capilene Cool doesn't smell after a long day in the office.

Fantastic Shirts

I own two of these and could own a closet full. They work as advertised SPF-wise and are cool in warmer climes. As opposed to another review, the material is very soft on the skin, they breathe very well and they move freely when under a shell. Tremendous post-hike/whatever shirt. I’m 6’/190/old athletic and the large is perfect.

May 28, 2019

Great shirt but odor control total fail

The fabric feels soft, non chafing, and comfortable. Great sun protection and good for a wide temperature range of conditions. However the anti stink does not work in my experience, at least if worn for endurance efforts that take multiple hours. You'll still stink. Great shirt overall though and my choice for trail runs.

May 22, 2019

Almost perfect

Nice fit, versatile, soft and comfortable with good sun protection. Thumb loops and a button on the collar to secure the hood would make it perfect. Oh - and please get rid of the scratchy label on the hem.

May 9, 2019

Just what I was looking for

Super light breathable material, with a nice hood. For long days on the bike this is perfect because I’ll forget to reapply sunscreen. Pull up the hood for neck protection. I’m 6’5” 190 and the large fits perfect, just like all the other Patagonia things I’ve got.

May 8, 2019

Versatile hoodie

This hoodie was a great purchase. I’ve worn it running outside, hiking and as a coverup at the beach. It is fitted so size up if you want to layer underneath.

May 8, 2019


This is a great fit for someone who likes a hoody and a little long sleeve action but tends to overheat even in a lightweight sweatshirt. It will also be great at the pool as the afternoon stretches into evening. Looks nice, too. A new favorite.

May 8, 2019

Cool and comfortable

This shirt is exactly what I was looking to get for the summer. It is super light and the material is very soft so it feels like you aren't wearing anything at all. I have only gotten to wear it a few times on warmer days so far but it has kept me cool while being in the sun each time. I will definitely be purchasing another as I will probably... Read More be wearing these all summer long.

May 8, 2019

Light Weight yet durable

Though super light weight, this piece has stood up to bushwhacking like a champ. It's a summer staple that can double as a winter base layer- no problem.

May 8, 2019

Awesome “hoodie”

I love this long sleeve hoodie. Versatile, fits great, and comfortable.

May 8, 2019

Awesome Awesome Awesome

I live in these shirts. The only bad thing I can say about them is the Patagonia tag is on the bottom of the shirt and it is made out of a rough material that can irritate your skin.

May 7, 2019

Excellent lightweight hoody

This hoody is comfortable, lightweight and cool. It fits true to size and is comfortable. I've spent hours in the sun and found that it provided good (though not complete) sun coverage. It is cool in hot temperatures and I have found it versatile for running, yoga, soccer and lounging. It's gotten sweaty several times before needing to be... Read More washed. I liked the first one so much, I've bought all four colors.

My new favorite

Perfect fit + silky feel + Patagonia tech = my new favorite

Nice shirt

Really nice baselayer/shirt. Very light material that catches the breeze well. Billowy but not so much so that it obscures your feet (for climbing). A little concerned with the durability and a little bit bummed there are no thumb loops. I really like the fit of the hood too, assassins-creed-esque but not too baggy that it gets in the way of eyes.

He’s obsessed.

My husband just opened the package, put it on, and hasn’t taken it off since. That is huge. He says he wants pants to match. It’s super soft, cut perfectly, and the hood fits great. I think the colors could be better, but he’s really happy and looks great in it.
