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.

Ws Capilene® Cool Merino Graphic Shirt

Kinda Large
July 25, 2023


This shirt is so worth it! It is my go-to shirt for any activity: running, biking, climbing, hiking, farming. It dries quickly and does not stink because of the wool blend! I easily wear it three days in a row for running no problem. My one complaint is that the armpit area wears faster than the rest of the shirt, likely because I wear them running... Read More on repeat. I do not know if this is because of where the seam falls, but hopefully a redesign could help that issue! Regardless, I still recommend the shirt because it does last for a long time.

I got the green color. It was completely see through.

Light and versatile

Its been nice to wear this from mountain biking straight to meeting up with friends. It doesn't hold odor like synthetics and colors are attractive. Super light and drys quickly.

June 26, 2023

Perfect T-shirt

These lightweight merino shirts are heavenly. I live in San Francisco, and they're perfect for running in any temp. The fit is wonderful, and they look great too, so sometimes I just wear them out too.

June 12, 2023

New favorite

I have been a big fan of the Cool Daily shirts both long and short sleeve and have worn them regularly. I feel like the merino version is a must add to the collection. After getting my first one I immediately bought another one. They are a bit spendy for me so when I see one on sale I grab it and will continue to do so. This shirt is soft and comfo... Read Morertable. The fit is perfect. Its great by itself or part of layering. Highly recommended! 53, 105lbs.

Pinholes in shirt after one wear

I love the shirt but after just one wear (didnt even wash it yet), i see little pinholes in a few spots. I can see it start to pill. I am a huge Patagonia supporter but disappointed in the quality of this shirt. Perhaps i just got a defective one. Would be willing to try it again.

We're sorry to hear this shirt isn't holding up as it should! Thank you for this feedback. We are reaching out to you about returning it under our warranty.

Nice and light

The material is very light weight but in the same token pretty sheer such that I can see my sports bra thru it. Had the material been more concealing I would have kept all 3 that I had ordered.

Comfortable wool, great warmth

I have switched most of my active wear to merino wool, heavier in cold weather, lightweight in warm weather. The wool is not scratchy and wicks moisture well. Can't beat natural fibers.

March 8, 2023

So comfortable!

I wanted wool for backpacking. This t-shirt is so soft and comfortable! I can wear it as base layer in cold weather, an a t-shirt when warmer. Glad I got two!

March 1, 2023

Super Comfy - a love!

Love this shirt so much when I'm hanging out at home, going for a walk or to the gym. Definitely will be packing on all vacations.

February 18, 2023

Love the material, not so much the fit

This shirt performs great, as you would expect a merino/poly shirt to perform. Wicks well, no smell, plenty soft, dries quickly. The length is fine, not crazy long like most Patagonia stuff. Short sleeve length is good. Neckline is pretty good but still a bit wide for my liking. (I truly miss the old style capilene from days gone by that had that p... Read Moreerfectly modest V-neck.) Where this shirt misses is that it's a trim fit. Just make this a regular fit like all the rest of the capilene t-shirts and be done with it. Do that, and it's a really great shirt that I would purchase in multiple colors. As is, I'm likely one and done. If you like a trim fit, this could be a great shirt for you.

February 3, 2023

No itch and no stink

The wool isn't itchy and so far, no stink even after a few wears before washing (although it is winter now so I'm not sweating as much as in the summer). I wash in cold and let it air dry and I have not observed any pilling.

December 23, 2022

Great All-Around Layer

I love the long sleeve version too. The lightweight capilene shirt was my favorite until this fabric. It adds warmth when needed and cools just as well. Best moisture wicking while feeling great against the skin. May take a wash or two to soften up.

October 24, 2022

Great merino do-everything shirt

Fantastic ultra-lightweight merino baselayer. Works well on its own, or as a baselayer. Wicks really nicely, and holds up well to smell. In fall weather (less sweating), I can easily wear it multiple days in a row. I am typically a small, and this is a bit loose for a more relaxed fit. I would size down for a more trim fit.

October 12, 2022

No stink!!

I bought this shirt and immediately took it on a 10 day mountain bike trip where I only washed it once. I rode in it nearly every day and it barely got smelly even tho I did! I usually wear a small in tshirts but opted for a medium on the recommendation of a friend, totally worth it. For riding it is much nicer to have a bit more room in the pits a... Read Morend torso. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a shirt that can take a beating!

Super Comfortable

Very lightweight yet breathable. Does not smell after sweating. Easy to wash and dries fast. Compact. Perfect for outdoors activity.

Light and quick drying

Starts pilling after a couple of hand washes

Amazingly comfortable and quick drying. I own 3 of these T-shirts and I brought them on safari with me for a month. I hand washed and let them drip dry overnight. After about 3-4 hand washes with gentle soap, the material started to pill. How does a such an expensive T-shirt start looking like a used thrift store purchase after a few hand washes? T...

I'm saddened and disappointed because they are so comfortable and perfect for trips when you need them to pack light and dry quick.

Hey Luanne! Sorry to hear the Women's Capilene® Cool Merino Graphic Shirt started pilling so quickly for you. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed, and you're welcome to send in your item for a return. Pilling is natural and you may see it in garments made from wool and/or polyester. Hand washing can cause pilling as well due to the friction from rubbing the fabric between hands. For helpful tips on how to remove the pilling, click [here](

i live in this women's capilene merino line

I wear these tees daily. I've washed this particular tee over 200 times since I first bought it this past Spring '21. I wear it as a base layer, I wear it as a workout tee. It's just a great fabric, perfect weight. I always wash in cold water and always air dry. I love the sheer fabric. When I see others wearing it, I always admire i... Read Moret. It looks great; accentuates a strong physique.

super light and soooo comfy

Love it. So comfy to wear as a layer under my jumper, soft on the skin and super light. Great base layer for winter walking, looking forward to wearing it in the spring for casual days, spring running and walking

Quality ?

How is this expensive T-shirt look ruined after two washes on gentle cycle and not even go in the dryer. I thought this was to do sports ? Disappointing

Still Holds On To Odor :(

I'm sad to report, though this is a wool/capilene blend, the capilene's ability to hold onto odor totally decimates any ability that the wool has to minimize odor. It holds onto odor just as much as my other capilene cool shirts I run in. :(

Light colored shirt is see-through

I received as a gift and love the fit and feel, but the light blue shirt is completely see-through. I can read the product tag through the shirt. I will return.

Love this new t shirt.

Best of both worlds, great fitting, keeps me cool and looks great. Love the merino blend, this just became my favorite T.

As other reviewers have noted, this shirt is slightly sheer and you need to take good care of it due to the fine fabric. But the drape, fit and quality are super.

Great shirt, just be careful when washing

This is actually a great shirt for for all the sweaty outdoor actives I do, but the material was way more delicate than I anticipated. The shirt ended up getting 2 holes in it after the first trip in the washer. If you are going to purchase this shirt, be sure to hand wash it instead.
