Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Built with a soft brushed interior and deep front zipper, this stretchy base-layer top keeps you warm yet lets you vent during high-energy activities in very cold weather.
Every classy lady has a little black dress in her closet, and every class-act outdoor chick has a Patagonia Women's Capilene 3 Midweight Zip-Neck Top in her mountain wardrobe. This versatile number is made with Polartec Power Dry fabric, so it is moisture-wicking and quick-drying, and the zip-neck makes for easy climate control. To ensure that you won't be odoriferous (never a good idea in a little black dress either), the Polygeine odor treatment keeps smelliness at bay. Like the little black dress made with cutting a rug in mind, the stretchy Cap 3 is loaded with functionality. The slim fit slips beneath other layers, the straight hem is cut long enough so you can tuck it in, the offset shoulder seams merge out of the way of pack straps, and the thumb loops give you secure hand coverage. Wear this midweight to the mountain and prepare for a few jealous looks.
The range of light, with its water-polished granite, twisted yellow-barked pines and beckoning passes inspired this multifunctional zip-neck. Summer, winter or shoulder season, 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.
