Designed for comfort during high-energy activities, the midweight Patagonia Capilene Midweight long underwear bottoms wick and breathe to keep you warm and dry in cool-to-moderate conditions.


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. Features of the Patagonia Women's Capilene Midweight Bottom Polartec Power Grid fabric has a smooth face for easy layering Fabric's brushed grid pattern next to skin provides superior warmth, breathability and moisture-wicking Performance Flat waistband has brushed inner elastic for next to skin softness Gusseted crotch for comfort and unimpeded mobility Flatlock seams to minimize chafing Spandex for stretch and ease of movement Fabric is bluesign approved
