Soft, stretchy, breathable and compressible, Capilene(R) Thermal Weight is made of Polartec(R) Power Grid(R) fabric with a smooth face that glides beneath layers and a brushed-fleece interior to warm your core, wick moisture and feel smooth against your skin. It also has between 30-92% recycled content and Polygiene(R) permanent odor control to keep you welcome among friends. 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. Product features include a two-layer hood with internal neck tape for next-to-skin comfort, a high collar with anatomical shaping for warmth, a locker loop for hang drying, full underarm gussets for unhindered shoulder mobility, elastic thumb loops for secure hand coverage, flatlock seams that minimize chafing, offset shoulder and side seams that lie smoothly beneath pack straps, and a minimal drop tail for additional coverage.

Designed as a next-to-skin baselayer for performance in cold climates, this versatile piece is warm and breathable enough to wear as a light midlayer or fleece during active pursuits in transition seasons.

The Patagonia Men's Capilene Thermal Weight Zip-Neck Hoody is a warm baselayer for the coldest adventures. The warmest in the Capilene line, the Thermal is a stellar choice for those venturing into the alpine, and even fairs well for those that just tend to be really cold, even when below the tree line. Polartec Power Grid(TM) is the mastermind behind this cozy layer, smooth on the outside and open grid on the inside, allowing you to layer like a champion while maintaining enough breathability and moisture-wicking as your intensity heats up. A hood for head warmth and a 1/4 length zipper to release excess heat and you're set for the day.
