Capilene(R) Lightweight is our lightest-weight, fastest-drying and best-wicking baselayer. The fabric's subtle open-grid pattern sits lightly and comfortably on the skin; the smooth outer face glides easily in any layering system. Highly breathable for high-exertion pursuits and warm conditions, the fabric is 100% recycled polyester that wicks moisture to keep you comfortable and dries in a flash. Polygiene(R) permanent odor control means less washing and longer wearing, and because it's Fair Trade Certified(TM) sewn, the people who made it earned a premium for their labor. Features include a self-fabric collar with internal neck tape for chafe-free comfort, full underarm gussets for unhindered shoulder mobility, elastic thumb loops to help cover hands, flatlock seams that minimize chafing, offset shoulder and side seams that lie smoothly beneath pack straps, and a drop tail for additional coverage. Fair Trade Certified(TM) sewn.

The Patagonia Men's Capilene Lightweight Crew is a lightweight base layer for staying comfortable and layering up. In the sun or hidden beneath thicker layers, the light base wicks moisture and dries quickly, for all day comfort. When hitting the trail on your daily run, you're getting 35 UPF protection from the sun, while out on the slopes you're getting next-to-skin comfort and extra warmth. Crazy how one little bit of polyester double knit fabric can do so much. Underarm gussets and off-set shoulder and side seams put movement at a maximum, even when wearing a pack. And Finally, a shirt without the stink, Polygiene permanent odor control deters scent from sinking in so you can wear it for another day.
