Run in it, surf in it or layer it with a lightweight shell. Capilene Lightweight is Patagonia's lightest-weight, fastest-drying and best-wicking baselayer. The fabric's subtle grid pattern sits lightly and comfortably on the skin; the smooth outer face glides easily in any layering system. Highly breathable for high-exertion and warm conditions, the fabric is bluesign approved, 100% recycled polyester with 35-UPF sun protection and is treated with Polygiene permanent odor control. Features include a self-fabric collar with internal neck tape for chafe-free 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.



I use the shirt for backpacking and trail running. Would recommend it to anyone seeking a comfortable lightweight long sleeve.


Super light (3oz) yet surprisingly warm...a perfect base layer!


I'm a big fan of Patagonia, and I've been wearing capilene for years. I think this is the thickness that used to be called, silk weight. It's thin, and light, and dries quickly when wet. I use it mainly for layering under another shirt, but I also just wear it alone. It's easy to get it snagged on anything it touches, contact with Velcro will do a number on it, or wood, it'll still work, but it will have a snag or a run in it.
