A use and abuse must-have for groveling up a chimney pitch or liberating an untracked line through gnarled pines. Our Capilene Midweight fabric hits the sweet spot of weight, breathability and wicking that, worn alone or with additional layers, is the essence of versatility. 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? fabric, it has a smooth face for easy layering and a brushed-back grid that aids in wicking as well as warmth. The fabric is bluesign(R) approved, has 93% recycled-polyester content and is treated with Polygiene(R) permanent odor control. Features include a long center-front zipper for venting, internal neck tape for next-to-skin comfort, full underarm gussets for unhindered shoulder mobility, elastic thumb loops for secure hand coverage, flatlock seams to minimize chafing, offset shoulder and side seams to lie smoothly beneath pack straps, and a drop tail for additional coverage.


The Patagonia Men's Capilene 3 Midweight Zip-Neck Top is Patagonia's most versatile baselayer for the athlete who wants to wear the same thing while he climbs, runs, backpacks, snowboards, and skis throughout the year. This is Patagonia's fastest wicking performance baselayer that can stretch, breathe, and dry for extremely difficult climbing and trail running situations. When winter comes, the smooth jersey face glides smoothly under layers for incredible warmth on cold ski days.


When you're facing the first pitch in the early dawn chill, you'll be comfortable in this zip-neck midweight layer that keeps you warm and dry during high-exertion activities.
