Very light, comfortable, effective
I've tried a few sun shirts, as there are many on the market now, and I really like what Patagonia has done with their Capilene. I might actually like the previous generation better, as it was a bit softer, but this new material is super light, super breathable, and fun to wear. I wear it out, to bed, on the water, in the water, and around the... Read More house.
Fabric seems nice, but the XS was way too big for me. The length covered my butt and the armholes were too big and under the arms had too much fabric that stuck out away from my body. Bummed as I was looking for a new running tank. For reference, I'm 5'1", 100 lbs, 32A chest. If this came in XXS and a shorter length it might work. Wo...

Thank you for this feedback, Ryan. We're passing it along to our product designers along with your suggestion for a racer back. In the meantime, thank you for returning a product that you weren't going to be happy with. Please let us know if we can help you find an alternative!
cool and loose good for summer
Its long and a tad loose, which contributes to its coolness. I was actually looking for a mid weight vest type that comes to the waist that I originally wore in winter, circa 1980-90 but it's not made any longer. I wear it close to skin all winter and will try the merino wool version.
Perfect tank for workout
This is my second tank of this style. I bought it because the fabric is soft and breathable and it covers my sports bra nicely. I use it for walking/hiking in hot weather and will use it as a layering piece if we finally get cool/cold weather. The fit is true to size and is long enough to be comfortable over shorts that are not high-waisted.
Replacing all my other tanks
Since purchasing this in black, I've bought 2 more colors and decided that all my other casual wear tanks need to just be donated. I love these with a skort, skirt or shorts. Can easily be layered, order/sweat resistant, breathes but keeps your temp just right and is SUCH a flattering fit to show off shoulders. The Beta bra works perfect under...

Please never stop making these! Perfect Tank!
I have purchased several of these specific Capilene tanks over the past 2 years and I wear them every day--literally. I have relegated all other tanks to the back of my closet and these Capilene tanks are my go to for everything. Please continue to make them & bring in new colors. (over 60, athletic, 5'2", 120). I've never had an... Read Morey problem with the arm holes, as I've seen other reviewers mention.
Perfect In Hot Weather
The fabric makes this so very comfortable for gym workouts and any activity, the blue color is very nice and sizing is good for me as I did not want tight fitting. My only suggestion is that the shirt gaps a bit in the underarm area, perhaps because I did order a large rather than medium.
Another review complaining about the arm holes!
I love and own many Patagonia Capilenes. This is the only one with a fit problem for me! Like several other reviewers, I found that the bottoms of the arm holes have way too much fabric. They jut out sideways from the body. It's an awkward look, and more importantly an uncomfortable fit for me. For sizing context, I am small but muscular, wi... Read Morede shoulders, long torso. I hope Patagonia will fix this design issue, because I could use about five of these tanks!
I purchased two of these tanks to run in. So far so good. Its light and even after tons of sweating during double digit miles, this tank was comfortable and cool. It didn't bunch up or bind, and the price is great. The thing I like best about it is that my bra straps don't show. My back and the back of my shoulders are completely covered.... Read More
Excess fabric on bottom of armholes
I like the fabric and style. It fits me perfectly BUT the fabric on the bottom of the armholes is excesses. The excess fabric puckers out and looks unsightly. I purchased the same style and size from REI and there is no issue with the armholes. I will have to return for another style, unfortunately.

Hello Pat, thank you for your review. That sounds like an unique fit issue, thank you for bringing it to our attention. If you have not begun a return you, you can start one [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Comfortably cool/light material but not see through
Great tank tops. Usually wear XS but sized up to Small to be more casual and glad I did. Bought one in every color. They're light, no see through, armholes are perfect, don't show my bra or bra straps and don't ride up. Wear 34C and I needed extra room in the chest so it doesn't pull across the shoulders. Good quality, well made... Read More and reasonably priced.
Comfy and functional
I have a few capiline products from Patagonia, and the reason I keep coming back to them is they're a perfect blend of function and comfort. They last forever, maintain shape, and do exactly what I need them to do. This tank is the perfect summer piece for my biking, yoga, and general activities.
Cool in warm weather and not bulky
Bought these tank tops in 3 colors. Perfect for wearing to summer dance class - keep me cool, don't ride up, and have room in the armholes without exposing my bra. All the seams lie flat and not too low cut. I wear a regular bra underneath and the straps stay under the tank straps and are never exposed even under vigorous movement. No sweat sp...

Wanted to love this!! :(
This tank is exactly what I was looking for for hiking in the summer - perfect material, length, colors, and coolness. Sadly the shirt is made with strange amount of extra fabric in the armpits that flop out and chafes. I tried the size down, but there was still extra fabric and then the shirt was too tight on my chest! I really want to get this sh...

Poor quality control
I have this tank in grey and order two more in different colors. I have to exchange both. The arm hole are different on each tank and the two new ones are misfitting. This is a quality control issue.

Hi Susan, we're so sorry to hear that about the quality control issues with the Capilene Cool Daily Tank Top. We'd be happy to help out with a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). We'll also reach out to you privately just in case you need further assistance.
Too tight around the chest
The blue color is so, so beautiful! And the fabric is so silky! I loved the look of this tank but am sadly going to return it, as it is too tight on me around the chest (mainly in the back, at chest level). Very odd, as I don't have a large bust and have never before in my 54 years had to return an item because it was too tight in the chest.

We appreciate your feedback on the fit, style and fabric of this tank but we're sorry it wasn't working for you. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) you with a return!
This tank top is comfortable and light weight, a good length, and I am overall very happy with this purchase. I am just over 5'9" and weigh 163 lbs, and fit somewhere between M and L in Patagonia gear. I ended up buying this tank top in a M so that it would be more form-fitting, although as other reviewers have mentioned, there does seem ...

Amazing for travel
I brought this tank on a trip to a tropical climate it was generally upper 80s with 80% humidity and I wore it more than half the days because it was so great. Super lightweight, breathable, and most importantly, didnt stink after sweating in it. I sink-washed it after every 2-3 wears, and it was good to go. Super highly recommended for warm weathe...

armpits are strange
5 feet tall about 116 pounds. Size A cup. Ordered the small. Great color blue, great material. Didn't wear for use as I ended up returning it. Everything fit fine, length, chest area not tight around the core. Material under the armpits kind of flopped out. Only way for it to flop back in place was to put your arms down. So, unless you didn&#x... Read More27;t put your arms up, it was unsightly. I really wanted to like this because it was perfect for warm hikes and I think generally looks nice until you life you arms up.

Best active tank, can wear with vest !
I love this fabric so much. I have the t-shirt, and was skeptical to try the tank with my running vest for fear of the chafe. It works (at least with my vest)! The fabric is great, it wicks without becoming a soggy leaden mess dragging you back down the trail. The grey color is fine, would love some faster colors though, maybe even a garish novelty...

I bought this to wear for several different outdoor activities with my family. Ive been working out, and also spending more time outdoors, and this tank has so many great versatile features.

I needed a tank that wasn't all "racer-back"-ish because I can't put sunscreen on my back by myself!

I wear this Every Day
I love these cap cool daily tanks and wear one every day. Dont care if the sun protection is not there as I can choose not to be in the sun.

I love this tank! My niece had the daily shirt so I purchased two of the daily t-shirts for myself. I liked them so much, I ordered another t-shirt and two tanks in different colors. They are the perfect weight, so soft, and fit very well. I prefer this tank to the Capilene Cool Lightweight Tank, softer, better fit.
Wish this fit the way my old one does.
The fabric is fantastic. Super lightweight and cooling. I love the "high neck" that this tank has too. HOWEVER, the underarms of this tank make this completely unwearable. No matter how I pull/stretch/readjust this tank, the underarm fabric sticks out away from my body. Maybe it would work for someone with larger boobs (for reference I we... Read Morear a 34C). I have a previous version of this tank top in a size medium (I bought a small this time) and did not have this issue with my old tank. Very disappointing because I want to love this tank top.

If this becomes too much please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it under warranty. Your feedback has been passed along to our Design team.
Excellent performance, one odd feature
I am an avid runner, and I love this lightweight top--it is cool and comfortable for long runs in a very sticky climate. I have two, and they are by far my favorite running tops. There's only one problem with them: they're really big under the armpits. It's not just that the armholes are too big, it's that there's too much ... Read Morefabric, and it curls over in a weird way. The performance is great, so I'm happy to keep them, but this odd flaw makes them unwearable for anything other than exercise. I'm 5'6 and slim, and S fits well with a bit of room.
Armholes Too Large
The material is nice and thin. However, the armholes were very large and loose fitting. It gave the top a sloppy look. I put on my hydration pack and realized that I would have some issues where the shoulder straps rubbed my exposed skin. Unfortunately, I returned the top.
Light summer top
I like the higher neck line. It is a hot weather tank. Very light weight. I bought two, a S and an XS. I like the XS better. I am a bit over 5'3", 108 lbs. The length is good, as I wear them with running or yoga tights. They are a bit shiny, although not dramatically so. Now, please make these in organic cotton! Then they would be perfect... Read More!
Too high a neck line.
Too high a neck line. Fabric too shiny. I much prefer a previous capaline light weight item purchased from you that had a more open weave and matte finish. The neck line makes it too hot for my climate except for a couple months a year (if i ever cools down that much again!)

Hi Joan, we're sorry you were unhappy with the fit of the Capilene Cool Daily Tank. As with all of our gear if you're unhappy for any reason we're more than happy to return or exchange it for something that may work better for your needs. Check out the Women's Fluer Tank Top, https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-fleur-tank-top/54933.html?dwvar_54933_color=BSBL&cgid=root. It offers less coverage around the neck and in the back.
I want this tank in all the colors!
I ordered 2 of these recently and love this tank! It fits well and is great for hot Florida. I find myself waiting for them to come out of the wash so I can wear them again! I have worn them casually, for hiking, for yard work and to workout. It doesn't cling when drenched with sweat and never feels hot. I am planning to travel with them too a... Read Mores they will be nice for layering and dry quickly. I'm waiting for the black to come back in stock in my size to order a couple more. I am 5'7", 130lbs, straight and slim build, 34C and the Small fits great. I could probably wear an XS, but I like a little room for air movement in this hot climate.
Purchased one at a local
Purchased one at a local store for wearing while playing tennis. Loved it. So I ordered several directly from Patagonia. Summertime in Alabama is crazy hot, but these tanks are quite comfortable. Also like that they’re not too long like so many tops are. And the slightly higher neckline is a plus. Definitely recommend.
Lightweight fabric, stretchy
I am 5'4", 44 C chest with a big ribcage, muscly curvy body, and big shoulders, about 200lb. I really need super soft, stretchy, loose and comphy clothes because of Fibromyalgia, and chronic pain. I like this top, much better then versions made in the 1990's, as the fabric is stretchier, lighter weight, and the top is much longer. Bu...

Wonderful Tank Top
Because the Capilene Daily and Cool Daily in an XS fit me perfectly in both the short and long sleeve versions, I had high hopes for this tank top.

The size medium is perfect for me. I like things a little on the loose side, but this is not overly loose. = I can do downward dog without the tank falling down around my neck.

Lightweight, daily tank top -- but weird armpit fabric flare
It's lightweight and high cut so you can wear this on your next outdoor activity as well as a casual office environment. I wish it was a little bit longer, but being tall that's my main gripe with a lot of tops. One star off due to flaring fabric in the armpit area but it will likely work better for larger-chested women.
