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.

Best Shirt Ever
I have tried my best to buy this shirt in every color that has been released; it is simply that good. It can be worn for any activity, it fits great, the feel is soft and smooth, and it does a fantastic job of wicking sweat and drying quickly. I highly recommend the Capilene Daily Shirt, buy one right now!
Fantastic shirt, runs small
I have several dozen Patagonia products in Medium. I'm 6'1, 170 pounds, not exactly huge and generally Mediums are a perfect fit for me. Not this one though, it was so tight across the shoulders I couldn't wear it. Same thing happened with the Shearling Button Pullover, just too tight across the chest and shoulders. Super disappointi... Read Moreng in that case since the large was so gigantic that didn't work for me at all. If the size is right this is a terrific product!

Extremely large sizing

A lightweight option for Summer
I purchased this tshirt for my roommate, an eternally hot and sweaty guy who needs lightweight options to stay cool, calm and collected! I recommend this top not only for its cooling features, but for its quality of material and lovely unique colors! Will be purchasing more items for birthdays and Christmas!
Love these shirts
Never thought I would find a shirt that could surpass my love for the original Patagonia Nine Trails shirts crica ~2015 / 2016. To me those shirts were the apex of fit, feel, comfort, and performance in all weather conditions and all activities - mtn biking, running, fishing, hiking, camping, lounging, chasing kids around the yard, etc - without lo... Read Moreoking too much like a technical tee. I understand that Patagonia is constantly tickering to improve product performance, sustainability, and their supply chain, but after the first couple iterations of the Nine Trails shirt the material got too thick and did not perform well in hot weather (just did not breathe as well). It wasn't until the current version of the Capilene Cool Daily Shirt came along that I found a shirt that I would put on the same level as those original Nine Trails shirts. And I love them for all the same reasons - I can use them for any and every activity, be comfy doing it, and not have to worry about looking out of place as a I transition from one event to the next, i.e. from riding the bike, to taking my kid to ball practice, to sitting at the coffee shop with my wife.
Perfect in every way
Fits great, looks great, feels great, works great...what more could I ask for? I've purchased 5 capilene shirts over the years, including multiple generations/versions of this one. It's clear that Patagonia listens to their customers and constantly improves their product, because this is the best one yet! Love it.
I live in the desert, and these are my everyday wear for most of the year. They are light weight (and therefore cool - as cool as a shirts going to be, anyway.

Read Moreetic. This is especially nice on multi-day desert trips when you can't wash. When you can wash them, they dry very quickly. Expensive for a t-shirt, but worth it. They also work ok as a base layer for snow sports.
Functional poly shirt
Wildly different sizes between L and M in this shirt. Large was gigantic on me. Kept the medium but need about 3/4" - 1" of length. Material is great and actually nice that Patagonia makes a shirt that doesn't have a huge back logo. How much I wear it will be determined by how I tolerate the fit. I would like to buy more of these shi... Read Morerts if I could get a size between an M and L.
Cool looking cool tee
I live in a tropical urban jungle island and this tee is my favourite daily wear. Similar tees from other big brands like Nike and Under Armour irritates my skin and they smell easily, but not Cap Cool. The fit is perfect on my shoulders and not tight around the waist. Wish they come in Black again
I wear a variety of Capilene Cool T shirts in long-distance running events. In 45 years of marathon running, they are the most comfortable shirt I’ve worn —- providing even a smoother ride than racing singlets. They are a little pricey for a middle-class guy like me. But for some things in life, I find it worthwhile to dig a little deeper.
Great shirts, weak stitching
I LOVE these shirts. They are the most comfortable thing to wear when it is hot and humid but you you need a shirt. The material is perfect. The cut is perfect. The thread used for stitching sucks, it is not abrasion resistant in the slightest. Even my (plastic) sunglasses hanging on the neck of my shirt for a few miles wears right through the stit... Read Moreching. Use some more abrasion-resistant thread please, Patagonia! Make these things last like they would otherwise.
Base Layers even in the office!
Not a life changing event - but moved from V necks to crew neck for my "T-Shirts." I've loved the Capilene White T and enrolled it (and a few more for daily changes) into the line up. Now each day starts fresh and just a bit more comfortable then my old cotton friends. What would I change - NOTHING (except maybe all the TAGS on the i... Read Morenside bottom of the shirt - perhaps a "perforation" so I could tear them off without cutting too close to the seam). It's all good! Thanks!!
Bought this for my partner who likes very basic colors (white, black, gray) but wanted to try a more technical fabric (instead of Hanes cotton). He usually wears a medium but in this shirt the medium was way too big and baggie, so exchanged for a small. If you prefer closer fitting shirts (not tight but not loose and hanging) maybe size down.
My husband loves the t-shirt. We love the high quality fabric. Except that for an extra large the t-shirt should be a bit bigger. But aside from the size being on the small side, my husband said he would buy it again. Please add an extra inch or 2. After all it is an extra large. We would buy every color if made at least an inch bigger.
Soft, cool, lightweight, ultra comfortable. Fabric moves with you. Quick drying and odor control. Colors are more attractive than they appear in the photo having a grain, not just solid. ( X-Dye) Its hard to tell your wearing a shirt. What more could you ask for? One more Patagonia garment you want to live in daily.
I don't even know how many I have!
LOVE these! Probably have around 20... Multi colors. I live in the Mid Atlantic area. I wear these shirts usually as an under shirt most of the year. On the coldest days, I'll go wool. When first buying, thought of the Cool Dailys as only a hot weather item. No... pretty much all year! Some shirts are several years old. They fit, and feel gre... Read Moreat. I am older, but more active than most of my age group. I'll describe the fit as, 'close'. If I had the classic beer belly, the medium would be too tight. I run speedy dogs in agility... In respect of that, I have to stay in shape! The shirts are great!!!
The material is flexible, smooth
The material is flexible, smooth but good as a layer in cold weather. Fit is great. Odor control is pretty astounding in response to heavy workouts. I use it as a first layer in 3-4 layer situations. Would be great for climbing as it flexes well. Always loved Capilene. This is a great use of that material.
Another great product fr Patagonia
I have every color made now, something about the fabric that 'just works' for Utah's diverse climate. I can e mtn bike for 28 miles, stop and it wicks itself. I can wear it as a base layer and stand at 11,000' at Snowbird, totally comfortable, no itch. Probably the best value product that Patagonia makes. Color's last, neck... Read More doesn't sag.
Got it mixed up with the "cool trail" fabric. Didn't realize that this would be so nylon-ey in appearance and feel. Unlike the cool trail, which has a softer, more cotton-like appearance, this can't really pass as a casual shirt. Always looks (and feels) like workout wear. That said, it's well-made.
Feels like Im wearing nothing
I love these shirts, feels like Im wearing literally nothing! Do they dry faster than cotton, Id say maybe. You really aren't gonna tell the difference. But the fit and feel makeup for their overzealous sales pitch. I will be recommending. Best for fishing, skating, anything under the sun. Twice as durable compared to a cotton Tee.
Not your dad's white t-shirt...
The perfect base layer that can be worn on its own or layered depending on your needs - its the upgrade your dad wished he had when he was your age. Comfortable, material has a nice hand and the fit is great. You can't go wrong, my only complaint is I should have bought more. What are you waiting for?
These shirts are excellent, that's first. This is the first shirt that was long. When I put it on it dropped below my crotch, I normally wear a large in these. So when I switched to a M I'll wear it as a actual undershirt. They're very soft and deal with perspiration pretty good. In my opinion you guys perfected the t-shirt!!
The material and comfort are unsurpassed, but the t-shirt is about 2 inches too short. I have a normal torso, large size fits me in all the Patagonia line, but when I put my arm up to just touch my head the shirt exposes my midriff. If you're like me and like your shirts tucked in, then stay away from these. If you're a "let it all h... Read Moreang out" kind of guy, then these are really comfy otherwise. Different strokes.
Good until you wash it
It was good until I washed it. Deodorant stains do not come out. They actually bleed through to the outside of the shirt, and while the shirt dries quickly when new, it failed to dry after washing. After every time I wore it (after washing), the sweat never dried until I put the shirt in a dryer. While my first review gave this shirt 5 stars (I had... Read Moren't washed it at that point), I now give it one star. I emailed Patagonia to find out about the Ironclad Guarantee, but they never responded. I guess it is just marketing hype. I went and purchased a $12 shirt, and it performs just as well.
Great All-Around Shirt
I've bought this shirt in three different colors. It's perfect for working out, but it looks nice enough to wear as casual clothing. It definitely looks like athletic clothing, though. The neck is a little loose, but not in a way that it looks bad. I'll definitely buy more of these.
I love and hate this shirt. I wear this shirt daily as a undershirt and love the light-weight and feel of the fabric. This shirt will discolor over time. Mine started to show signs of discoloring at about 18-months. I hate that I love the shirt and have to replace them every 1-2 years.
New Favorite Daily Shirt
Got a couple of these as summertime hiking shirts and liked them so much i ended up getting a handful in white to use as daily work undershirts, then a couple in long sleeve for good measure. They are soft and smooth to the touch, breathe exceptionally well, and my favorite thing about them is the way they drape. They don't hug the skin like m... Read Moreany tees tend to do on my soft bulky body. Instead they lie on the shoulders and chest and drape nicely from there, giving my flab a nice place to hide. Honestly, these shirts are ruining all other tees for me. I want everything I own to feel and fit like these.
Great for Everything
Huge fan of this shirt and am planning on buying a couple of more. I have tried a few different activewear type shirts and this is by far my favorite. The fit is perfect on this not being to tight, but also not being so loose that I am wearing a tent. It is very lightweight and is never restrictive when moving around. The material feels great, ... Read Moreand works just as well. Both in the gym and on runs it does a fantastic job of wicking away sweat and drying right back out because it is so breathable. At this point I love the shirt so much its gone from just a workout shirt to a daily wear.
Breathable and doesn't collect odor
This shirt is 1,000 times better than Nike's Dri-fit shirts that look the same. It's extremely breathable and you can tell it's high quality. I wore it over the entire weekend (lazy weekend) last weekend, and I swear this shirt did not have an ounce of odor on it. 10/10.
Improved my time and comfort
Was wearing a couple of super thin wool Patagonia t-shirts for my Grouse Grind (North Van, BC) hikes. They're good, but I though I'd try a cap cool t. Wow! Not sure what the t does with my sweat anymore. Hike so much cooler that I credit the t with shaving a couple of minutes off my time and making it so much more comfortable. Absolutely ... Read Morelove this shirt. Who knew a t-shirt could evoke such feelings and results?! Thanks Patagonia/Yvon for another great product and for trying to help people and the planet. We don't have a lot of stuff, but our values dictate that our clothes and bags are Patagonia.
I wear this shirt as a base layer when it's cool, or as my main breathable activewear for hiking and running. I just ran a marathon in one and it was perfect for 50-65 degrees, no chafing (dry climate, limited humidity). I have 4 now, and I love these as my go-to-shirt for almost everything I do.
Super silky feeling
I bought these after having such a great experience with the Capilene Cool Daily Hoody. The hoody sold me on the fabric so I decide to try the T shirt. It did not disappoint. The fabric is the biggest selling feature for me as it is lightweight, great sun coverage and feels great against the skin. It's probably the nicest feel of any performan...

First wore Capilene (expedition weight) on hike of the 100 mile wilderness (Maine) in November. I was blown away by how well it preformed against the cold. This is a much lighter version to help combat the heat. I just love how well this fabric performs and how comfortable it is to wear. I'm a fan for life. Thanks.
Lite and Strong
Great shirt for summer hiking and backpacking here in Western NC where it can be pretty humid. I prefer this to the Cool Trail Shirt because it's lighter and breaths more readily although it might not last as long. Seams are well sown and resist unravelling. I'm 5' 11" and 170#.

I've had a capiliene cool daily hoody for a while now and it's one of my favorite shirts to wear, so it was time to pick up a short sleeve for warmer days when I want a bit more sun.
