Designed to manage the extremes of high-output exertion, our Capilene(R) Midweight fabric hits the sweet spot of weight, breathability and wicking that is the essence of versatility worn alone or with additional layers. It keeps you dry and comfortable when worn during high-exertion activities in cool-to-moderate temperatures and insulates beneath a shell in cold weather. Constructed with a Polartec(R) Power Grid(TM) fabric, it has a smooth face for easy layering and a brushed-back grid that aids in wicking as well as warmth. The fabric has 33-66% recycled-polyester content and is treated with Polygiene(R) permanent odor control. Features include a flat waistband with brushed inner elastic for next-to-skin softness, a gusseted crotch for mobility and flatlock seams to minimize chafing.

The Patagonia Women's Capilene Midweight Bottom is a versatile base layer for cool to cold weather hiking, skiing, and even sleeping. Polartec Power Grid fabric is a polyester/spandex double knit with Polygiene permanent odor control. That sounds ridiculously fancy, I know, but all you need to know is it's soft on the inside, smooth on the outside, and stretchy to follow your every move. The soft interior with a gridded pattern wicks moisture away from your skin, then dries nice and quick for constant comfort. It insulates against the cold temperatures you find yourself in and that smooth exterior allows additional layers to be pulled on over top without a hassle. The flat waistband won't bunch or get in the way of the pants you pull on over top, they just hug your hips and kiss the skin for warmth. That sounded really cute.
