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.

This material is extremely soft but not delicate or silky - it's durable but super soft. Also, doesn't seem to be too thick so it isn't a hot material, great to wear in hot/warm weather. I often wear medium in other brands but definitely wear a large in Patagonia and it fits well.
Multi purpose top
My husband is obsessed with his capilene tops from Patagonia, so I decided to snag one too. Its amazing! Feels so silky and cooling, breathes well, dries quickly, and washes well. It has held up well to backpacking in humid and hot conditions, travel, casual wear, a run and a couple washes all in a short span of time. I love the turquoise color too... Read More. Im 5ft 4, 32C with a narrow build and the small fits well, but the shoulders might be a smidge tight.
Great fabric and design!
Perfect shirt for hiking. Love the fabric and logo design. I wish it were taken in slightly at waist for a less boxy fit. Cap sleeves could also give the t-shirt a more flattering look while not losing practicality. Overall, great shirt for being active outdoors.
Super comfortable shirt
I first bought this shirt as the long sleeve version since I live in Texas where the sun is very hot in the summer. This shirt breathed so well and had such good sun cover I decided I needed the short sleeve version as well. The fabric is super soft and well made and I will be purchasing more of these shirts.
I look fly af
Comfortable. A little baggy but cool. Florida runner any cool clothing is a life saver literally! Done miles and miles in these shirts and have never had a problem and the sweat isnt noticable so if you need a beer before a shower you can easily hit up the local bar and your shirt will still look fly!
Patagonia Review: I have several of these shirts in both short and long sleeved versions. I am very happy with the way they fit and wear. True to size, the shirt moves with you on all kinds of adventures. Fabric repels odors-even BO for me anyway-meaning fewer washes needed between uses. Quick-dry for an overnight wash while on the road. Great f... Read Moreor travel, daily wear or whatever adventure you have in mind!
My favorite shirt
I love, love, love these capilene shirts. They are lightweight, flattering fit and wash beautifully. I have about 8 of these shirts and wear them constantly. They are perfect for exercise, hiking, backpacking, yardwork, literally anything. They don't hold odors or dirt. They're awesome. I'm 5'6" and 130lbs. I like the mediu...

I have been traveling through Southeast Asia and this shirt has been amazing. Great at sweat-wicking and dries quickly after being caught in unexpected rain. Odor control is on point too!

Cool in warm weather and not bulky
This time I bought the Root & Grow shirt to add to my collection of these wonderful shirts. Love the natural color and nature inspired statement. I pair these shirts with my Island Hemp Beach pants - perfect for dance class, casual strolls and suitable for casual dinners. Sized up to medium again. I'm 5' 1" and 107 pounds.
Light and comfortable
I own this shirt as a long sleeve and wear it as a rash guard/sun shirt because it's so light and breathable. I was going on a long backpacking trip and knew I wanted a no fuss lightweight shirt to pack with me but didn't want to get too hot from the sleeves. I'm super happy with this shirt and will likely purchase more over the year... Read Mores!
Soft but Hard
The fabric is amazingly soft to the touch (great for my skin!) but the T is sturdy and doesn't seem "snag prone" like some fabrics. I'd give it 5 stars, except I can't get more than one active day wear without having to wash. My sport (Trap Shooting) isn't listed - but this was extremely comfortably under my shooting v...

Super Summer Tee
I try to stick with natural fabrics, but night sweats forced me to seek a lightweight wicking quick-dry sleep shirt, and this one is perfect! I like it enough to pull it on for hiking as well. That sweat underneath the backpack dries MUCH more quickly with this shirt than a cotton tee.
Perfect Layer for Summer
A great layer that I wear for all sorts of activities. These used to have an SPF rating (and then they were recalled because of possible lower-than-rated sun protection), but I still wear this as a protective layer when hiking or running in the sun. I also pull it on over a tshirt when I need a tad more warmth. Love it.
The best shirt period.
I have three of these. I'm not a minimalist, but I definitely only rotate through about 6 different shirts for running and mountain biking and this one takes up 1/2 the slots. The fit is great for me (someone who is a large small or a small medium), the length is perfect, sleeves, shoulders loose enough to have mobility, but snug enough not t... Read Moreo get in the way. I'm 5'7", 140 lbs and a size small is perfect. The fabric is nice, breathable, not quick to smell bad, doesn't pull or snag with use of hydration packs. I often get a couple of wears before washing depending on how hot and sweaty I get on my rides and runs. Colors and graphics are fun and varied (hence my collection of three). My only minor gripe is that sometimes in the heat of the summer (granted I'm in the Southeast US so it's sweltering), the shirts hold a good bit of sweat. In a way, it's not bad having extra moisture around to feel cool while on the trail, but post run, I have to air out the shirt or give it a good squeeze. All in all, this is the finest athletic shirt I own and I hope Patagonia makes them the same way forever!
Wicks more effectively than performance fabrics
Wore this for the first time while on a several day backpacking trip in the Alps in 70-80 degree heat. Of all the shirts I had, this was the only one that didnt leave my back soaked from sweat. Super soft fabric and nice color too. Will look to add more as my old shirts wear out.
Love this product and fit... I wear these shirts constantly for exercise and work in the field. As a larger chested woman who appreciates roomy tops with lots of movement my only request is for more availability and options for the size XXL! For a while I thought XL was gonna have to be it and I finally tried an XXL and it was perfect! The option i... Read Mores often sold out or not available in certain styles.

My Favorite Shirt!
I love this shirt. This is the second one I have purchased. It is my go-to shirt for outdoor activities when I know I will be getting wet/sweaty and will be in the sun. I sized up and got a large because I prefer these kinds of shirts to be a little baggier. The large is perfect for me (5 ft 6 in, 145bs). I would definitely purchase again.
Great for all conditions
I work outside in streams/rivers all day and have come to rely on this shirt throughout the summer (also the trail tank, but that's another review). Comfortable without being tight, keeps wiping my sweat away, not super hot or clingy. I do manage to stain these shirts surprisingly quickly, but I think that's more my problem than the shirt...

Lot better than the old ones
I bought these given that the summers in the DMV area have become more humid. I was not happy with the Capilene cools that I had bought a couple of years ago, and had returned them. These are terrific. They do "stink up" unlike merino blends, but they take a lot longer than the old ones did. These also feel really good--does not stretch o...

Love the ridge pattern.
This is an awesome tee - light, comfortable. I especially like the new ridge design. Just enough pattern to break up a plain tee. Keep the new colors coming! Appreciate having more variety! I usually wear a large in base layers, and sized up to have a looser fit.
Perfect for Warehouse Work
Obsessed with these shirts! I work in a warehouse in Central Florida and deal with unloading trucks, moving boxes, packing orders, etc. all while dealing with the heat and humidity. The shirt feels weightless and breathable the entire time. I ordered this one in a medium because I wanted it to fit more loose but it still sits perfectly on my body. ...

Beats the Heat
The product is light and comfortable, even in high temperatures.

This is the fourth capilene shirt I've bought in this style and the satisfaction is never ending. Sized up to a medium for comfort and ease for dancing.

Love this shirt
This is my new favorite shirt! The fit is great (I am 5ft 10 and kind of lanky.) Got size medium. Its long enough to not ride up without being so long that I want to tuck it in. Very light and breathable for the summer. This will be a shirt I wear for years and years.

Capilene Cool Daily LS and SS shirts
Love these shirts in long and short sleeves! Super soft, wick well, great for aerobic activities where I'm doing a lot of sweating. Use them for mountain biking in cold and warm weather and they are great. Please make more colors with mountain bike-specific graphics!
Great shirt uneven sizing

Extremely comfortable and breathable
I have several of these shirts from Patagonia because 2 or 3 just isnt enough! Ive gotten many compliments on them too.

I was looking for a casual shirt and grabbed this one impulsively just before checking out. As soon as I got it, I was afraid the color might wash me out. I tried it on and immediately ordered two more. It is unbelievably soft, comfortable, and flattering. This fabric is awesome! Love that it is not cotton so it will dry quickly.
New Favorite Tee
Holy smokes I wish I would have discovered these years ago- I'd have my closet full by now.

Love this material! Very comfortable and cooling. This shirt runs large. My usual size is small (54, 124lb) and this is pretty baggy on me. I have a capilene cool long sleeve shirt thats about the same fit. If you want a more form fitting shirt Id go with a size down at least.
My go-to t-shirt
I love this shirt. I have 3 that I have ordered one size up because I like a looser fit. I wear it for my fitness walk, working out, leisure and as a super comfortable layer under sweaters and sweatshirts when its cool. It is a favorite to tuck into my carryon when I travel.
Literally the Best Van Life T-Shirt
My husband and I have lived in our converted van for 18 months. We literally only wear these t-shirts. They are amazing! Weve been really hard on them.

Comfortable Sun Protection
Purchased one of these shirts last summer because of the sun protection. I now have several more. They are more comfortable than regular t shirts because they wick in hot weather.
