Protect the ocean so it can protect us
Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Excellent by itself or as a base layer
I love the silky feel of this fabric as compared to the (less silky) feel of the other capilene and wool-based fabrics currently on offer from Patagonia these days. This fabric works much better as an under-layer. And I think this fabric dries faster than those other fabrics as well. I can't guarantee that, but it seems that way to me. Highly ...

I have 4 of these, two hooded and two unhooded. Different colors. They are soft, comfortable in texture, and fit well, except maybe too tight around the neck. I do not like them as a base layer under a mid layer for strenuous activity. They don't seem to wick as well as some other capilene fabrics. Which is my primary complaint. Even worn ...

They work for non strenuous casual activity, but are not optimal at hiking, which is what I primarily do.
I've been wearing these shirts for 20 years
I now have three of them since they don't really wear out, although I have used the Patagonia repair/replace guaranty on other items, and it really is take it to the bank. The designs are good, the wicking is great, the commitment to the environment is more than good--would I recommend it to a friend--yes in fact I did last week.Good job Patag... Read Moreonia!
Solid shirt, but cut too big.
Fit is good across chest and shoulders, but its pretty floppy below that. Awkward fit will limit its usefulness in my life, unfortunately.

Thank you for submitting this review, Jeremy. If that fit turns out to be too bothersome, please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this shirt.
This is a great garment for all things water. I recently wore it on a three day canoe trip in Olympic National Park. It did a great job at keeping me protected from the sun, warm in the shade, comfortable in the wind and never got sweaty during a hike, all while being quick to dry after splashes and a quick swim. I cant wait to take it on my next a... Read Moredventure and put it to a new test. Snorkeling perhaps?
Just not my cup of tea
Just not my cup of tea. An OK shirt but a little smaller than most of the mediums I wear, the fabric didnt really float my boat, and I wasnt in love with the pattern.

Great material, bothersome fit
The fit is just too long and baggy for me. I'm 6' and 150lbs, and wear size Medium in the standard Capline Cool Daily, which fits me perfectly, but this is a more relaxed fit. It's good in the shoulders but way too long. Whenever I crouched or bent over the back of the shirt would get caught over my backside.
Whoever titled the "Long-Sleeved Capilene® Cool Daily Fish Graphic Shirt" hit the nail on the head; especially the "daily" part. It is absolutely my daily shirt for many reasons. The shirt is super comfortable; it's cool in the heat and sun; it drys in a minute. You can throw a raincoat or R1 over it when the weather chang... Read Morees and be comfortable as can be. I have shirts from several generations and have yet to wear one out or have to toss one that's gotten manky. They are Spartans! The only thing I would change is to revert to a longer sleeve length like some of the old ones. The newer generation is a tad shorter and there's no real upside. Especially when you're extending your arms mountain biking or casting, for example.
Hey Patagonia, fix this!
I am a woman who loves fly fishing. Why do I have to buy a man's shirt to get the fish print on the back. It's a great light-weight sun-blocking shirt. I'm sure men love it, but did you forget women who fish?

Thank you for your review on the Long-Sleeved Capilene Cool Daily Fish Graphic Shirt. While we do have graphic sun protective shirts in our women's line, check them out [here](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-long-sleeved-capilene-cool-daily-graphic-shirt/45205.html?dwvar_45205_color=RCPE&cgid=collections-sun-protection-womens), you're correct that we do not have this specific fish graphic available. We'll pass your feedback along. In the meantime, if you need measurements we'd be happy to help you decide on which size to buy for this specific shirt, reach out to our customer service team.
Great shirt, but doesn't breath as well as others
This is another high-quality shirt from Patagonia. My only complaint is that it doesn't breath as well as my other Patagonia shirts. However, it is important to note this fabric is a "High SPF" protection, so I'm sure that's a factor. My recommendation would be to sew vents into the underarms and sides for more air flow, th... Read Moreereby keeping the High SPF protection on the areas the sun shines.
Perfect shirt (except for mountain biking)
Remember this is an airy super comfortable shirt with an incredibly light weight, but it is not for any sport where you may fall :) This shirt was not a good choice when I took a tumble on the bike (I should have worn elbow pads that day). Love it for everything else.
Pure magic skin feel and durable
The breathability, fit, and skin feel of this 100% recycle material (cool daily Capilene) is amazing. A great shirt as a single layer! But I also love it as a base layer (silky skin feel). Would love to see a mock turtleneck version for under wool sweaters.
Best fishing shirt ever.
I bought this shirt for my adult son who moved to Houston this year. he is an avid fisherman and will only wear this type of shirt while flyfishing. It will keep him protected from the sun and yet keep him cool. I buy from you because you recycle and care about the earth
My Favorite Shirt
I found this shirt a few years ago and it was one of the best purchases Ive made. This shirt is cool in the heat and warm in the cold. It fits and looks amazing. Since my first purchase, I have ordered three more and love all of them. I have wrecked many times while mountain biking and I havent ripped the shirt. It is very high quality and I defini... Read Moretely recommend it to anyone.
Saves me a lot of sunscreen when I go hiking, running or at the beach. I usually wear medium, but I chose size L for flexibility and comfort specially when I sweat the cloth does not stick. Really cool in summer and I could walk or run for hours in the sun, despite heat and humidity
The large was too big in the body of the shirt so I returned it for a medium which was a much better fit. I should have done the same with a capilene hoody that I bought a few years ago. But I liked it so much that I just wear it in the bulkier size. It's perfect for cool nights at the beach. I'm a fit 6' 185 lbs and your sizing char... Read Morets suggest a large.
Rip after first wash
Had a rip in arm put after first wash. Less than impressed.

I bought one of these at a small outdoor outfitter shop in the NC mountains and I liked it so much that I recently bought another. I bought a large because I like my shirts to have a looser fit and the large in these is probably closer to an XL.

I love the capilene shirts and use them almost every day. I wish Patagonia would keep the sizes consistent from year to year though. The XL is much longer than prior year versions. It fits perfect except it feels like the sleeves and body are a couple inches longer, which is too long for me since Im not 6 ft 7 inch. Same goes for a few other Patago... Read Morenia items I picked up recently, too long. Past year XLs were perfect sizing wise, therefore had to ding a couple stars from my favorite shirt.. thanks!
the perfect garment for hot climates
Perfect garment to wear in the warm weather of Spain and South America. I have several clothes that I have used in Spain, Argentina (Cuenca Del Río Paraná) and Brazil. It is a relatively fresh garment, which protects from the sun and UV rays, as well as annoying mosquitoes.
Great Set of Gear
I love my Cap Cool Daily shirts. I use then for a wide variety of activities. I workout in them, lounge around the house in them and use them for when I am on the river. The odor control works great, and its nice spending a day on the river and not getting as bad of a sunburn with the help of the sun protection in the shirt.
I first heard of the golden dorado on a Patagonia fly fishing video. I’m not going to say that I vowed that day to buy the first garment that that fish showed up on. But the first day I saw that fish on a garment, I bought it. OK, cool fish. But the shirt is even cooler. I like to say about the best sunwear that it’s like wearing an air conditioner... Read More, only lighter. Patagonia tends to do this better than anyone else whose shirts I’ve used. And this one may be doing it better than any Patagonia garment I’ve used. Easy drape, plenty of flex, moves moisture with alacrity. The hood would’ve been nice but perfection is elusive 😁😎
I bought 2 of these shirts as gifts, to my husband and son who are outside fishing a lot. They both love them! The material is super soft and of course the logo they also liked...Patagonia we find stand behind their products. These shirts are well made and will last for years!
Kayak Fishing shirt
This is my go to kayak fishing shirt. It is light and perfect for a day (or two) of fishing. I am 6’2 and I purchased the XL and I love the fit. It dries quickly, doesn’t smell at the end of the day and does a good job protecting me from the sun.
