Kids' Capilene® Midweight Bottoms

Runs Small

Runs small

My kiddo is 4'3" and 52 pounds (kind of slim) and this runs as a very slim fit compared to other Patagonia pants. She doesn't love the tight fit but the next size up wouldn't stay up around her waist.

Weird fit bring back the old fit

I am a short woman who has bought several pairs of these over the years. I guess its been a few years since I last bought these and Patagonia changed the cut. This year I don't fit in my usual XL nor the XXL, the new cut pulls in weird ways and is really uncomfortable. Please bring back the old cut!

My daughter loves it

Fantastic base layer for kids. My 5-year-old daughter loves it and wears it all the time. The stretch makes sizing easy and I believe my daughter will wear it for a long time.

Poor fit

Sloppy fit for base layers. Inadequate waistband. Seams odd.

Fits my 6 yr old perfectly (maybe a tad large, but he is growing too quickly). Capilene is our preferred base layer for skiing, hiking, and fly fishing. He has no complaints

Cozy and toasty

I bought the kid's xxl and finally got something that fits perfectly. The bottoms are comfy and warm and I bought two pairs so I don't have to go without while I wash one pair . . . I get to wear them all winter. Hooray

kid's capilene, medium weight bottoms

I'm short 5'1" and small 106 lbs. l (and old) but I decided to try a kid's size. First I tried XL and it was too snug. So I tried XXL and it fits perfectly. In fact it's so comfy I'm going to order another one.

Perfect for layering

My six year old son is very tall and slender. The size small fit him perfectly. He says theyre warm and comfortable. The midweight bottoms appear to be very well made, and look great. My son uses these to layer in the city during Pacific Northwest winters, and during our frequent trips to the Cascade Mountains.

used to be great, redo unusable

I have bought and worn and loved these for years, always in kids xl . The new version is too short from crotch to waist, feels scratchy, has lots of vertical seams. Total change, total disappointment. Sigh,

Grateful for Kids' Capilene Base Layers

Super glad Patagonia makes the same high quality base layers for kiddos. Decided this year my son deserves the same awesome base layers for nordic skiing. He is 6 and on the smaller side - about 3.5 feet and the XS fits perfectly for him. Will be worn every single weekend under his Tribbles Pants - now if only you guys could make Tribbles for Youth... Read More!! He is definitely outgrowing his 5T Tribbles!!
