I wanted a new long sleeve jersey for trail running this summer. It's a perfect weight for summer in CA, when it might be a little cool in the mornings, but heats up quickly. The sleeves are nice and tight and don't flap around, and slide up easily and stay there. The weight is perfect for providing sun protection with not being as thin a... Read Mores possible. Works under my hydration vest perfectly. The only thing I don't like about it is, it's a little short in length. If I hold my arms up, you can see my non-6 pack stomach. But my other, heavier jersey (not Patagonia) is too long for my liking, so it's hard to get things just right I guess. I'll probably be buying another one of these once it wears out.
Great material but misshaped neck
The lightweight material is perfect for summers here in Moab, UT. It keeps me cool while also keeping the sun off my skin. I am always wearing either this Cap Cool lightweight long sleeve or my Cap Cool Daily long sleeve when I am mountain biking in the summer. The only issue I have with the shirt is that the collar/neck is not round. It doesn'... Read More;t lay in a nice circle around my neck - instead, it is bunched/puckered. It's not just a one off either because I ordered 3 or these shirts and they all have the same - to me - unattractive neck. Luckily, the buff I wear around my neck hides it. If the neck could be made better, I would give this item 5 stars.
Nice shirt but snags?
Its a nice shirt. Very comfortable and keeps me cool. The only problem is that I noticed a couple of snags on the back.
Hi Craig, thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We're sorry to hear that a few snags have appeared on your shirt. We'd suggest laying the shirt flat to dry after washing to reduce the change of future snags. With that said, if more appear and you become dissatisfied you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it under warranty.
good fit but not great material
this is the best fitting of all capilene cool versions but I have one from few years back which feel like silk and the new ones feel totally different and not in a good way, weight feels heavier too and i notice slight pilling. The material is a step down from the older gen.
Sleeve hem came undone. Otherwise nice shirt. Maybe not really for mountain biking though.
This shirt was advertised as a casual mountain biking shirt. I bought it with the M's Dirt Craft Bike Shorts and the outfit looks great. This isnt really a bike jersey - the back is not longer than the front - and the material is as light as advertised. (Great for hot days ) Unfortunately the hem on the right sleeve came undone after about 3 b... Read Moreig hikes and a few MTB rides. I have not contacted Patagonia yet - probably will try to exchange for another one. I have the color SUPX and it is nice and bright. Love the shirt, too bad about the hem. 4 stars I guess?
We're sorry to hear about the hem on that sleeve and we hope you reach out to us so we can get you an [exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). We're glad the shirt has been awesome otherwise!
Great fabric but short sleeves
I first bought the "Capilene Lightweight Baselayer" the year before they discontinued it. It was the best hiking shirt I've ever owned - super lightweight/cool fabric that protects from the sun. The fit was also perfect with slightly longer sleeves to accommodate arm movement without pulling up (along with thumb loops if needed). The... Read More current design has the same great/cool fabric, but the fit changed. I comfortably wore a small size before, but now even the sleeves on the medium are marginally too short (fine when walking, but too short to bike or climb). To make matters worse, the thumb loops also disappeared. Overall, I just really wish Patagonia would revert to the old style, or add the "baselayer" option/fit to the product line. These are easily the best long sleeve cool hiking shirts out there, but I'm sad that I can no longer buy them if I wear out my old one.
I've ordered these shirts in the past and was completely satisfied. I recently purchase of 3 and the workmanship is very inconsistent and not comfortable. The fit of the collar is extremely loose and with the rest of the shirt fitting slim it is very uncomfortable to wear. I use these shirts for a variety of circumstances; exercise, hiking and... Read More casual but I am not sure at this point whether to look for alternatives.

Long sleeve lightweight capilene
Perfect in 40 to 90 degree weather. Considered baselayer, I wear it as outerwear so bought it in size XXL for a looser fit. I bought two of these initially to fit as baselayer. Loved it so much I bought two more in XXL. Wore it for two weeks in Switzerland and France lasr week. No other top needed!
Sweet Spot Achieved!
I've been long searching for a warm-weather shirt, with long sleeves, that will be (1) super light; (2) comfortable on the skin; (3) easy to put on & take off; and (4) doesn't smell. Each product i've tested - including Arcteryx's and other Patagonia products - failed in one (or more) of these categories. Enter the "Coo... Read Morel Lightweight L/S." Bingo. I wore it on my motorcycle (under a protective armor) - a breeze. I ran with it - a joy. I wore it for long hours - no stink. This is the one.The real deal. Kudos Patagonia! Just looking now for more on sale... (good luck with that!).
My husband loves them. Based on descriptions and reviews, as well as our satisfaction from our other Patagonia products, I knew he would. Lightweight great for our hot Maui summer, great for our current visit in Wasington state, and will be perfect for Nor Cal in a few days. They look beautiful on!! Just after I ordered two, he said he needed to ge... Read Moret some other shirts for sun protection (he was removing a heavier weight shirt) I said: "I just ordered you two from Patagonia". We plan to get more, as well as gifts for the other men in our life (our kids). I'll be looking for the female version.
We are so glad to hear that this has worked out well. Here is a link to the [women's version](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-long-sleeved-capilene-cool-lightweight-shirt/45695.html?isSearch=true&dwvar_45695_color=COB).
Lightweight sun protection that dumps moisture
I live in a desert climate with 90 to 100 deg summer temps and lots of sun. This shirt is the best sun protection/cooling combo run shirt I own, and now I own several. 6’ 175 size medium for Patagonia shirts like this described by Patagonia as regular fit where I otherwise where a large in the shirts listed as slim fit
great sun shirt
Very good sun shirt. I have bought a number of these in different colors. Very cool to wear in high heat and sun. The fabric feels smooth. These are great shirts that i wear all the time, however the fabric is not as durable as the normal capilene daily (which is nearly indestructible). I have ripped the fabric with aggressive use (playing ultimate... Read More), but under normal wear it seems fine. Sizing is great, right in the middle, not tight, not loose. I will buy again.
Didn’t particularly care for the
Didn’t particularly care for the fit or the feel. I have several daily wear short sleeve capilene cool shirts and really like them, by the LS shirt wasn’t the same fit (tighter) and didn’t have the same feel.
We're sorry to hear this! Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it back to us for a refund and let us know if you have any questions.
Everything you want, nothing you don’t
Extremely soft and comfortable and lighter weight than the competition. Didn’t notice it at all on 1.5 hour runs. Have yet to test it on longer efforts. It dries faster than anything I’ve ever worn and helps me stay cool as I tend to run pretty warm. Love this shirt! I am 6’0” 175lbs and medium is perfect.
Please bring back the old Capilene 1
I wear Patagonia Capilene t-shirts every day... but it’s the "Capilene 1” that Patagonia used to sell. I tried this new version and immediately returned it. Where an L fit me perfectly in the old shirt, the L now won't stay tucked in (shorter by more than an inch) and the XL is saggy and baggy. The fabric has a creepy feel next to your sk... Read Morein. No thanks. Please bring back the old Capilene 1.
