Patagonia Men's Capilene 1 T-Shirt

Silky-soft Capilene 1 is the lightest of all our technical baselayers. A master at managing moisture to keep you cool during active use in warm to sweltering conditions, it also helps protect from the sun and acts as an excellent quick-wicking baselayer beneath heftier Capileneor wool insulation when the mercury plummets. Made from 100% post-consumer recycled (and 100% recyclable) Capilene 1 polyester, with Gladiodor natural odor control. Made in USA. Common Threads Recycling ProgramResearch shows that the environmental impact of recycling worn-out Capilene base layers into new polyester fiber is significantly lower than making that same fiber from virgin materials. Taking into account that worn-out garments are diverted from trash incinerators, making new polyester fiber from recycled garments results in an energy savings of 76% and a CO2 emissions [greenhouse gasses] reduction of 71%, versus creating that fiber from new raw material. Capilene Core PerformanceCapilene base layers afford quick-drying, next-to-skin moisture management for all activities in all conditions ? from high-altitude bivies to sun-soaked water sports.

Reviews - Patagonia Men's Capilene 1 T-Shirt

Super comfort
Great all around shirt. Great for training, hiking, biking, and even as a great night time sleep shirt. I have used this as a bottom layer for desert hikes, where I have worn a Solumbra long sleeve sun shirt over it. Wicks sweat very well, and dries super quick. Oh and if you chafe easily, then this is the best shirt I have ever had where I never come out with a rash, especially around where the shoulder harness rests. Just a super shirt.

Great Hiking Shirt and baselayer
I bought the Capilene-1 T shirt to be my primary hiking shirt for hikes in Florida and for backpacking trips on the Appalachian Trail. I've tried numerous other brands of synthetic, wicking T shirts, but the Patagonia Capilene 1 is my favorite. I've used them for hikes in temperatures from 50s to 90s. It serves very well as a base layer for cool weather, and as a wicking T shirt for hot, humid weather. For colder weather down into the 30s or 40s, I would go with the Capilene-2, which is also an excellent baselayer. I prefer the Cap-1 for warmer days and hot, humid weather. The fabric dries quickly from rain or perspiration, and is very lightweight. I'm 5'6", weigh 160, and the Large size fits me best. I recommend the Cap-1 shirts for backpacking trips also, the material and seams hold up well under backpack shoulder straps.

Cool Shirt for Exercise
Bought Capline 1 T-Shirt for exercising and warm weather hiking / biking. We won't have warm weather for a few months, but loving it for working out. The shirt run a bit smaller than a typical t-shirt. I'm 6' 2", 180 lbs with a slim build. A large is borderline snug, but very comfortable. These shirt weigh almost nothing and breath great. Don't know about durability yet (I'd keep away from loose Velcro hooks) but the build is great and I'm expecting years of good use. Looks sharp also.
