Patagonia Capilene 3 Midweight Zip Neck

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

A use and abuse must-have for groveling up a chimney pitch or scrambling high above timberline. Patagonia's Capilene Midweight Zip Neck 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 Power Grid fabric, it has a smooth face for easy layering and a brushed-back grid that aids in wicking as well as warmth.

- Mountain Gear refers to the men's version

Stay dry and comfortable when you're groveling up a cold chimney pitch or scrambling high above the timberline with the light and durable Patagonia Capilene Midweight Zip-Neck long underwear top.

- REI refers to the men's version

The Patagonia Capilene Midweight Zip-Neck Top is a versatile baselayer that will keep you warm and comfortable from opening weekend to closing day. The smooth Polartec Power Grid fabric wicks sweat and dries quickly to ensure that accumulating moisture won't give you the chills. The fabric's grid backing traps heat to maximize warmth without adding bulk, and stays breathable to keep you from overheating on leg-burning runs or warm spring days. The 1/4-length zipper lets you quickly dump excess heat when you're working your way up a steep skintrack, while the Polygiene treatment keeps odor at bay so you don't offend your skiing partners on the drive home.
