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 Men's Capilene Midweight Zip-Neck Top is a versatile baselayer that will keep you cozy and comfy from opening day at the ski resort to closing weekend. The smooth Polartec Power Grid fabric wicks sweat and dries quickly to keep you dry, which is the first step to staying warm. The fabric's brushed grid backing traps heat to maximize warmth without adding bulk, and it's 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, and a Polygiene treatment keeps odor at bay so you don't offend your skiing partners on the drive home.
