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.

Ms Capilene® Cool Trail Shirt

Kinda Large
October 20, 2023


Good size material very good

September 16, 2023

It's a t shirt you will always want to wear

I have 3 of these, collected over a few years - These are so comfortble and cut so well that I pretty much don't bother with any of my other shirts anymore! I'm 6ft and 76kg and like a large for the baggier feel. Worth every penny!

September 3, 2023

Fantastic shirt!

I love this shirt! I got three of them and they’re great for outdoor activities. I like that the ‘split’ at the bottom of the sides is filled in with material too.

September 3, 2023

Great Travel Tee

Very lightweight. Great travel shirt. Can wear multiple days, wash in the sink, and dry overnight. Perfect when traveling with just a carryon.

August 23, 2023

Cool and light weight, great fit

Maybe the best fit I’ve tried from Patagonia, very lightweight, perfect for hot weather

August 18, 2023

Great Trail Shirt

Really does actively cool better than typical cotton t-shirt. Also dries quite quickly, when soaked with sweat. Great trail shirt overall!

August 17, 2023


More like a regular cotton t-shirt than the daily, which surprised me considering it’s called ‘trail’ I’ve found sweat shows through very strongly, so I won’t wear it ‘on the trail’ or for working out. Perhaps in winter under a jumper.

August 14, 2023

Great MTB jersey

I have three of these, bought them as MTB jerseys but they are also great for running and hiking. I am a skinny 6', I can fit a Medium but prefer the slightly baggy fit of the large. These stay soft after many washes, overall a great shirt.

August 13, 2023

Comfort tee

Nice comfy tee shirt,

August 12, 2023

Superbly comfortable

The Cool Trail Shirt is wonderful for trail workouts in the summer here in North Carolina. It allows good moisture transfer and is very comfortable fabric that is easy to care for.

August 7, 2023

Capilene Cool Trail Shirt

This is a fabulous t-shirt. It fits well and is very attractive. The fabric dries very quickly. Would buy several if more colors and inventory were available.

August 4, 2023


First Patagonia capilene shirt i have bought. Fits well and I have used it hiking and running so far. Great quality as always from Patagonia and large fit was true to size. Does a great job as a baselayer or running top...will wear it for most activities I'd imagine.

August 1, 2023

The Cool Shirt for Hot Weather

I light this product for it’s wicking away sweat when walking or hiking in hot weather. I have three of these shirts, and they hold up well, fit loosely and hold their color.

Amazing, really well made, couldn’t be happier

July 28, 2023

Good as always

I have quite a lot of these shirts now and this one is the last. I has a bit different feel to it, but better different which is nice. Working its job, after a whole day has no smell whatsoever, so in my opinion - best shirt ever.

July 26, 2023


The material of this shirt is a bit thick and feels soft but plastic-y. It doesn't breath/wick particularly well. I keep searching for the right Patagonia t-shirt, but the search continues.

Best bit of kit in my bag

Silky smooth and super comfortable, this kept me cool and dry whilst hiking, even with a decent sized ruck sack on my back. Almost instantly dried when taking a break so kept me warm too. Most comfortable base layer I own.

Delighted with my men’s capilene

Delighted with my men’s capilene t-shirt and the excellent service!

May 22, 2023

A little too narrow over the shoulders

I am a slim person with rather wide shoulders. L has too much body for me. M fits my body perfectly, but would need a little more width over the shoulders to be perfect.

May 22, 2023

Awesome T shirt

Great T shirt and fits perfectly. Already have like three of them. It’s a go to piece of clothing.

The perfect all round sport shirts

It's a really light weight quick dry sport shirt

May 10, 2023

Excellent all-purpose exercise shirt

I use this shirt mainly for exercise, and it's the perfect weight and fit for the job! I also own a few of the capilene wool blends, which for me personally felt a bit too thin. Those are great for the blistering heat, but tear a bit too easily and leave little to the imagination. This trail shirt feels like a much better balancing point bet... Read Moreween lightness and durability/opacity. The only thing I'll say -- if you're a heavy sweater, everybody with eyes will know! I guess it means the moisture-wicking is working as designed, so no complaints here.

May 9, 2023

Extended sizes for the win!

I was so excited to see this shirt in my size. It fits great and has an a relaxed but fitted collar. So often larger sizes have massive collars making them unwearable in my opinion. The construction is top-notch, and material has been great for hikes and runs.

May 7, 2023

Great shirts

I love these shirts. This and the cool daily shirt are the only ones that I ever wear.

March 30, 2023


For the last 10 years I have been wearing merino wool t-shirts, I am slowly phasing out the wools for cool trail shirts. The durability of the cool trail is superior to merino.

March 19, 2023

Awesome shirts, run small

These are my favorite shirts to do any sort of physical activity in. I much prefer these over the capilene cool daily shirts, as they feel a bit more like a regular cotton t shirt and look nicer. They are also more durable. If you have muscles you'll need to size up in these.

March 3, 2023

Breathes well

Love everything about this shirt. Breathes really well. Dries quickly.

February 9, 2023

It's a T-shirt

I buy T-shirts from Patagonia because it's a sustainable company and a moral company. I like the shirt and the color. What else can you say about a t-shirt?

February 9, 2023

Nice fit, nice feel, well-made

Like it. Great for running, doubles as casual shirt while traveling.

December 29, 2022

Top t-shirt

Another of my best t-shirts for sports, the mountains and adventure travel. Super comfortable and light.

It is the 6th I have bought of this excellent T-Shirt! I use it in summer and winter!

November 9, 2022

Great T-Shirt

This T-Shirt is just great!

October 13, 2022

Nice casual shirt

This is the heaviest capilene shirt I've found from the past few years. A little thin, and a little clingy, but it fits well and it's comfortable. I really want Patagonia to bring back the 2012 Polarized Tee. It is almost perfection.

October 6, 2022

Different Material than other Cap Cool Shirts

I was pleasantly surprised that this is a slightly different material than the other cap cool shirts. It is woven in a way that feels a little thicker but is still extremely breathable for hot days.

But, you should stick to the original cap cool if you are looking for a river/sun/beach oriented shirt because they feel slightly lighter and are slightly more comfortable while wet.

September 10, 2022


Well made shirt. The fabric was heavier than I expected which will make it more durable backpacking, but also warmer. It's a bit heavier than the Cool Daily Shirt. and I expected the reverse. (Could have read the specs more closely!) I expect it will last a long, long time.

I sweat in anything but not as much in this and it’s comfy,a few better colours would be good

New fabric clings like a plastic bag

While I'm glad Patagonia uses recycled material, the material used for the latest version of the Cool Trail T clings like the wet plastic bag that it is. Ever have a cheap thin plastic shower curtain cling to your body while showering? It's kind of like that. The size is true, the cut is good, and the guarantee can't be beat. But com... Read Morepared to my 2019 version of the Cool Trail T, this latest model just clings when wet/sweaty. In fact, it even clings to itself when dry and folded! Sadly, this one has to go back and I'll hope that Patagonia switches to a softer, less-clingy fabric in the next iteration.

It's not like I remember Capilene

I visited Patagonia website recently to order some additional Capilene tee shirts for upcoming travel. I already had a blue Capilene that is now over 10 years old. Remembering how well it worked in hot and cold conditions, keeping me comfortable and dry while also keeping its shape and size through many washings, I decided to order two new Capilene... Read More in M. When the two shirts arrived, I was disappointed with the cotton-like feel, the thinness of the material, and the too-tight fit. The shirts were nothing like my good old Capilene. I worked with Customer service to set up an exchange for the Large size. I received the Large shirts in reasonable time, but my opinion did not change. Patagonia has moved to a different material with its new line of Capilene- and it is nowhere near the quality or appearance of my old favorite. I won't buy any more of these.

August 17, 2022

Light Tshirt

One of the best tshirts I have, light, super well made

August 14, 2022


Lightweight shirt for casual outdoor walks

August 12, 2022

Favorite t-shirt for running

Love this shirt's feel, even running with a vest for longer distances and racing ultras. It's comfortable, not super-fast drying but just right for fall and spring temperate conditions.

August 12, 2022

As always great quality product

Very lightweight. Quick dry and good feel.

August 12, 2022

Best all purpose

Surely the best for sleeping, wake up run or hit the trail. Easy to wash and dry on the go and re-wear.

August 11, 2022

Great All-Season MTB Shirt

A great all-season shirt. Has good weight to it for fall and early spring riding, but I've been using it in the North Carolina summers and it's thrived there too. The fit is athletic without being too slim, allowing a lot of airflow when riding which I love. Sweat wicking and breathability are on point. The shirt is much more of a grey co...

Capilene cool trail shirt

This shirt is perfect in hot weather.

July 31, 2022

Not for people who sweat

Feels great when you put it on, but terrible moisture management. Retains sweat, gets super wet and clingy, and sweat then drains down onto your shorts. Capileine cool daily works better, as do (cheaper) shirts from other companies.

Thank you so much for leaving this review! We are also very sorry to hear that this item did not fully perform the way it should have. Please know you are always welcome to [return]( an item at any time if it does not function the way it should.

July 31, 2022

Great material

Shirt fits really well, for working out it’s quite fitted over the sleeves and chest so not great for chest based exercises

July 31, 2022

Capilene Cool Trail Shirt

Feels like Cotton with a relaxed fit, it keeps the sun off and wicks sweat. A perfect warm weather tee. Very happy with it and very likely to buy another in time.

Fabulous Attire

These shirts are ideal for a variety of activities.

Good fit and lightweight

Happy with the shirt color and fit. Would buy again. Though they do feel a bit different (maybe not quite as cool-feeling) than the long sleeved hooded capilene shirt I've had for years.

July 16, 2022

Best damn T ever...

This shirt is absolutely the best type of synthetic T I ever found. Most of the efforts by others to accomplish this seemingly simple task usually either choose the wrong fabric (too hot, doesn't breathe, sticks to skin, etc) or completely screw up the cut or all of the above.

The best tech tee ever. Fits great, feels soft and breathable, doesn't smell and looks pretty much like a regular cotton t shirt. Literally checks all of the boxes

Unnecessarily changed the design

As said in another review, I've been wearing Patagonia Capilene shirts for at least 15 years. Ever since they changed the naming scheme of these shirts (e.g. Capilene 1, Capilene 2, etc) it's been difficult to parse exactly what each shirt is. This particular Capilene Cool Trail Shirt has been unnecessarily changed from the original des... Read Moreign. The seams are still in the same place but the fabric of the shirt is no longer reminiscent of the Capilene fabric that I'm used to. It's more of a soft heathered cotton feel rather than a sweat-wicking synthetic feel. Also, I've been purchasing XXL sizes from Patagonia for as long as I've been a customer ... the XXL version of this shirt is way shorter than anything else I've ever purchased ... even shorter than regular XL. Maybe someday Patagonia will get back to what they used to do. Maybe supply chain issues are affecting what they can vs. can't manufacture. No hard feelings against the company here but I typically support companies that I can expect consistency from. I'll be looking at other clothing companies for a sweat-wicking synthetic trail shirt because it seems like Patagonia has just gone in a different direction with this one.

July 5, 2022

Perfect for cycling

I picked up a couple of these for a cycle tour of France. I wanted a casual tee that I could cycle in all day many times over. These tees fit the bill.

The Cool Trail T-shirt has become my favorite shirt to wear. Fits perfectly and is superbly comfortable, especially here in Florida where the heat and humidity are so blooming high.

Performance wear that feels like cotton

Patagonia Capilene has become my favorite shirt for hiking. The shirt dries and wicks likes a synthetic, but feels like cotton.

The shirt has managed to keep me cool in both dry and humid climates. Overall just a great performing comfortable shirt. So far I have only purchased the short sleeve version (x4), but I am tempted to buy a long sleeve version as well.

Love this very comfortable shirt. I would have given 5 stars except for the uncomfortable care labels that were difficult to remove with a seam ripper. I wish they would change to polyester labels.

May 25, 2022

Great shirts

I wear these shirts in the swamps of Florida - SUPER humid and hot. They are very comfortable, very lightweight, and stay as dry as possible in those conditions.

All I Need

Super lite. Sleek feel

Completely See-Through

Do not buy this shirt. Its completely see-through. Thats not an exaggeration. I would attach a photo to prove it if that was an option. I love Patagonia products, so this one was surprising and disappointing. Again, entirely see-through. It's basically a mesh shirt.

Perfect shirt for night runs

Slightly heavier than the cool daily shirts, the trail shirt is perfect for running when its not too hot, and great as a base layer

May 6, 2022

Merino alternative

I wore two of these on a two- month road trip, each for a week between washes. Two months of backpacking and sleeping outside with sponge baths and occasional shower. And no stink. No holes. They're very comfortable, soft but durable, and they are as resistant to odor as my merino clothing.

May 6, 2022

Great shirt!

Amazing quality, fit and feel - I wear this shirt for everything. Definitely can't beat the quality!

Light and easy

Light. Feels good on skin. Folds easily and tightly. Dries quickly. Highly recommend

Simple, functional.

I wore this shirt for about three months straight while on a NOLS trip. Worn it on probably 50 other days in the backcountry too. It keeps me cool, keeps me comfortable, doesn't chafe, doesn't get too stinky. Wear it at home plenty too. Would recommend.

Response from Patagonia
October 15, 2021

Hi Lowell, we're so sorry to hear about your experience with the Men's Capilene® Cool Trail Shirt. Pilling can be more noticeable on this item. To prevent pilling, we recommend washing that item either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get abraded. To remove pilling that has already occurred, a sweater shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new again. Of course, if you are not pleased with the performance of your Capilene® Cool Trail Shirt, you are absolutely welcome to send it in for a warranty returns evaluation under our Ironclad Guarantee,

I also appreciate the torso is slightly long at the back so the shirt doesnt expose your lower back when reaching or bending. It also packs up tightly in your pack. Recommend fully.

Great Fit, Feel. Pilling after 3 Days

Bought these for hiking, as they are Trail shirts. Love the fit, the feel and the colors. But they quickly (3 days each) are pulling on back and around shoulders. Dont seem like a trail shirt. Will probably return.

We're sorry to hear about the lack of durability on this shirt. While all knit fabrics are subject to pilling, it sounds like this is an extreme case and it may be due to the straps and material of the backpack. Your purchase is covered by our [Ironclad Guarantee](, so please reach out to our Customer Service team. We'll be happy to help return it under warranty!

Great shirt

Perfect base layer for warm weather. Comfortable.

Patagonia style

Nice looking and fits well and I like the color

August 30, 2021

Lightweight and breathable

I have a few of these Capilene shirts and I love them while hiking in hot weather. Breathable and comfortable.

Nice shirt

wish is was an inch longer since I'm 6'4"

Comfortable fit and decent wicking

I am buying up light weight wicking shirts as I am going on an extended trip to India when restrictions are lifted. These shirts are able to handle 90 degree summer days here in Colorado with no problem. Now that they dont make silkweight capillene anymore this is a functional replacement. Overall this is a good shirt for high perspiration days and... Read More is a good base layer if you are going to be layering in cold weather.

Safety Is More Than Just a Dance

Great shirt for being active and the bright color is good for workouts near auto traffic.

August 21, 2021

Super comfortable

Looks good and very comfortable, however starts to look worn after a handful of washes.

Hey William! Thank you so much for taking the time to review this shirt. Due to the jersey like nature of these shirts they are prone to pilling if met with friction such as in a wash with abrasive materials. We recommend you wash these on a delicate cool cycle and hang to dry. All of our gear is covered by our Ironclad Guarantee and you're always welcome to return it if you see fit.

Great quality light material

I purchased 2 of these for hiking, climbing and gym work. They feel great on the skin and very light. I would highly recommend and will be buying again.

August 15, 2021

Thin material

This recent batch of Cool Trail shirts is a miss. Same cut as previous purchases but the material is see-through. The black t was the worst. Going back.

August 3, 2021

Ideal for hot day exercise

I wear the T for playing pickle ball, also for walking. I've come to really like these hot weather T's because they are light, look great and absorb perspiration exceeding well without corresponding bad odor. I have at least such T's and would buy more.

August 3, 2021

Super comfortable

Lightweight and most comfortable shirt I own.

August 3, 2021

Versatile shirt.

Having been a fan of Patagonia Capilene base layers, I bought one of these, and really enjoyed the feel, and the fit. I'm a Clydsdale, so XL was the right fit. You can wear these for work, play, and really good for nights in the sleeping bag, as they don't bind the way cotton t-shirts do for me. If they last as long as my old base layers,...

I got this for trail running and hiking but was so impressed with the quality and fit that I dont want to get it dirty yet, so right now I wear it casually

Cool travel t-shirt

A great t-shirt that is great in warmer climates. I use it for hiking & running, so the looser fit allows the t-shirt to breathe. It's a regular fit, so sizing matches up with the P-6 tee.

July 28, 2021

Purchased two

Shirt feels cool as promised. Material is high quality, style impeccable. Truly glad could find an ethical and ecological option to purchase. Bought one for myself and after that another one for my dad.

July 26, 2021

Nearly Perfect

I really love the fit. Its not too narrow at the waist, and it doesnt get too smelly, like a lot of performance fabrics. Only down side is that its pretty shear.

July 26, 2021

Cool trail shirt!

Love it, my go to for working outside.

Static Cling Machine

Been purchasing Patagonia gear for years and can't recall ever having a bad experience. Like the look and fit of this shirt but it is a static cling machine. No matter I do, it comes out of the dryer all wrinkled, clingy and unwearable. I tried using anti-static spray, but that didnt help much and made the shirt smell bad. I finally just had t...

Guessed right

Sizing at Patagonia is a matter of educated guessing. This shirt is not slim fit and it was roomy, but it is the right size. I also bought shirts that were slim fit and they also fit correctly, but were tighter. I have bought clothing before that was exactly the same as something I had purchased before and the sizing was completely different. Very ... Read Morefrustrating and annoying.

Light weight feel

Nice looking T. Clean look and seems well made. Easy to move in but not baggy. Feels light on the skin. Fabric is thin but that helps it breath. I need to buy a couple more. I like the forest colors.

July 20, 2021

Cool & dry, as advertised

This is my second of these T's. So far they've done duty as a primary T for hiking in Bali, Vermont and Montana, and as an under-jersey shirt mountain biking in Vermont. They are light, relatively cool and yet wear well, with no degradation of the first one after a couple of dozen wear-wash cycles. All thumbs up for these.

July 20, 2021

Good size/quality shirt

This shirt fits just right (not too tight or loose). 5'10" and 175; 40R. Weight is good even in high humidity. Just wish more mediums were in stock right now. Could also wear this casually with shorts...

cool trail shirt

wicks well but probably better for cooler weather. Its a bit thick for warm/hot temps

Very nice fit and somewhat transparent. Mango color.

Best shirt ever

Comfortable, Well-Made Shirt

I love this shirt. I wear it as often as I can. The wool is super comfortable, the shirt is durable, and it fits every situation from cragging to hanging out at the office. Highly recommend.

Comfort and Style of a T-shirt with Tech. Performance

Super comfortable in a wide range of temperatures. This is an article of clothing I don't think about after I put it on.

July 13, 2021

Excellent T-shirt

T-shirt is lightweight, fits well, and is well made. Only downside is frightful price, especially when shipping charges are factored in.

July 11, 2021

Great fit, but not made for all activities!

As with all Patagonia the fit and feel are spot on for me. However I used these over a week of 5-7 mile day hikes and had quite a bit of pilling. All located where lumbar pad and wait belt contacted the shirt. So now they are relegated to just hiking and backpacking shirts.

July 10, 2021

Solid shirt.

This is the lighter weight Cap t-shirt that came out after the everyday cap shirt. Very breathable and comfortable when active, great for hot humid conditions. In my pov its too thin for everyday wear unless you live in a topic humid heat zone. Good piece of kit.. now if Patty could just improve their zippers I digress.

So soft and light. I haven't washed it yet. I hope it does not break in the washine machine.

Pilling like crazy!

After only a few washes, the fabric is already showing significant pilling.

Response from Patagonia
July 9, 2021

Hi Quyntin, we're bummed to hear this! Unfortunately though, pilling is something that can be common with knit garments. Luckily, there's many products that can leave that shirt good-as-new such as a sweater shaver. Nonetheless, we guarantee all our product and welcome you to [send]( this back.

Perfect multi day shirt

Love these shirts . Got one as a gift and bought another one after my first use, which was hiking in the Grand Canyon. Dry quick, and keep me cool which is perfect for someone like me whos body temp runs hot. Not only great for hiking and climbing but great casual wear as well. Worth buying

Really awesome shirt! Amazing fabric! High quality and very comfortable. Wish there were some more color options. I have 2 now and very pleased with them both!

Great All-Around Workout Shirt

Super impressed with this shirt--soft and comfortable, breathes well, dries quickly. I use for mountain biking and trail running mostly, but it's just a good-looking t-shirt aside from its tech functions. It's tough too--I took a nasty bike spill recently onto a rocky trail; the fall road-rashed my back and elbow really significantly, b... Read Moreut the shirt just had a couple small tears. I patched them with tech tape and they're good to go. I think the vast majority of other shirts would have been demolished beyond repair--I loved this shirt even more when I saw how little it had been impacted!

Very comfy

Feels and looks like cotton, and acts somewhat like it. Doesn’t dry as quick as real polyester material but nevertheless it’s a soft and fresh shirt to wear.

New fabric is not good

Just ordered two of these shirts to add to the few I bought back in 2019. I will for sure be returning these new shirts, the new updated fabric that Patagonia switched too makes it feel like you are wearing a very expensive trash bag. The older model of these shirts were great, super soft and breathable and quick drying. These new shirts feel like ...

The Perfect Tee

I love this shirt...fabric, fit, price. This would be a great shirt to hike/backpack in but it's also a great everyday tee. For now I'll continue to wear as casual wear but as time goes by, I'm sure it will become part of my hiking gear.
