Does it's job!
Got it because there are days I just want something to throw on and cover my arms and shoulders during the summer, and that dries quickly if I sweat or need to hand wash and wear it the next day. It does that well. Im 5'7" 120lb and usually between XS and S. Got the XS since I wanted a more fitted look. Since it is more fitted I think it ...

Perfect summer hiking shirt
I got this shirt for a backpacking trip where we were going to be exposed and in the sun most of the day. This shirt was perfect. I normally cant hike in long sleeves because I get too warm but I wasnt overly hot and the sun protection first rate! I was also happily surprised that the shirt didnt reek after multiple days of wear. My only regret is ... Read Morethat I didnt buy the version with the hood, but the color I wanted wasnt offered in that style.
Light, Breathable Sun Shirt
I wear this shirt just about every time I run in the Texas sun and heat. I love it! The material is light and breathable, providing superb protection from the sun without feeling hot or constricting. The shirt dries quickly, and I never feel like the material is clinging to my skin, even when drenched in sweat. The fit is a little loose and airyfla... Read Morettering enough to be worn in casual settings like a post-COVID afternoon at the brewery.
LOVELY AND LIGHT!
This is such a cool shirt! It's light weight, dries super fast, and I love this design. Really, you can wear it for anything you want--hiking climbing, gym, running, get a beer with your buddies. Honestly, I'm not sure if it's really true to size. I got a small and I wear a 36C bra and my waist is 25 inches but it's not tight an... Read Mored for me the arms are perfect. This T is definitely is not constrictive, but if you want a form fitting long sleeve T this isn't snug, but I think it's still flattering. I'm getting another one of these! Race ya!! LOL!
Keep cool / Sun protection
I spent 8 hours under the hot, humid sun on the shooting range. Moisture wicking helped with the sweat and humidity. Sun protection prevented sunburn. Long enough to tuck in and stayed tucked even though I was shooting in a variety moving positions including around-the-world drills on the ground. I bought three of these shirts for a week of heavy t... Read Moreraining and they held up as expected.
cool cover for summer running
Living at 7,000 feet with intense sun, I needed coverage for my arms for my early morning summer runs. I had not found a fabric that was cool enough until I bought the capilene shirt. Plus, the crew neck provides more coverage than a V neck. I now have three of these shirts - white, grey & pale lilac. Love them.
Light Weight Sun Layer
This is one of my go to shirts when I know Ill be playing outside in the sun-whether its for a long hike, a day of climbing, mtn biking, etc. I live in SLC, UT. It gets HOT here but this shirt is so light weight that I often forget im wearing long sleeves. Its also supper soft. Its a little more fitted than the other sun hoodies (I have multiple be... Read Morecause I have fair skin) -still super comfy but more flattering. 10/10 recommend.
PERFECT for CO Hiking
I absolutely LOVE this shirt. It has been perfect for my late spring/early summer hikes in CO. I've worn it as a base layer under a shell when it's been raining and sleeting and have stayed warm. When the sun comes out, I don't feel hot and like to leave it on to protect my skin from the sun. It's so light weight and not tight f... Read Moreitting so even when I wear a tank underneath I don't feel like I have a bunch of layers on. The breathability is awesome. I just wish it came in more options with graphics!
Great Lightweight Baselayer
The Long-Sleeved Capilene Cool Daily Graphic T-shirt is the perfect top for warm-weather hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling. It is truly moisture-wicking and fast-drying, and can be worn for several days without needing to be washed. Patagonia, please make bottoms in this material!!!
Soft and great fit
Great fit! I wear this on the water kitesurfing. It fits great! It is lose but not baggy and is extremely soft! Great for hiking/ throwing over wet bathing suit. Do not put this in the dryer! I did that by accident! It is fine however the logo has curled up a bit from the heat!
This is a perfect shirt for pretty much anything. Hiking trails, exploring water, or just having a day of sun exposure. It really does keep me cool or just warm enough depending on the outside temperature. I love the goat and "eat local" design. I am 133 lb and 5' 9" and the size small fit loose and comfortable.
Like Mary Poppins- Pratically perfect in every way!
A few years ago my dermatologist gave me two choices: either never go outside in the sun again or completely cover up every time I am outside. Since I don’t really want to spend the rest of my life getting more skin cancer cut off I decided to opt for finding a long sleeve that I could tolerate in the summertime. After trying many different brands ... Read MoreI bought my first Patagonia Capilene Daily long sleeve and it instantly became my favorite sun shirt. It is comfortable, soft, breathable, durable and light (almost feels like you are wearing nothing). It wicks moisture away and dries quickly. The stretchy light material makes for easy full range of motion. This shirt is perfect for extended backcountry trips (it takes a lot to make it smell bad). This shirt is also versatile-water sports to trail running to climbing to light base layer in winter-this shirt does it all. I am 5’3” and 140 lbs. I initially bought a medium and found it to be too loose so I sized down to a small and the fit is great.
Lightest weight sun protection!
I’ve been spending a lot of money lately on sun protective clothing as I have a history of skin cancer and I now live in Hawaii. These are the lightest, most breathable tops I’ve purchased yet. Coolibar wishes. Plus, I admire and want to support Pantagonia for what they stand for and what they are trying to do. Hurrah!
Comfortable and great sun protection!
Love this shirt! Bought for mountain biking in the hot Colorado sun, it provides great sun protection while feeling cool and wicking away sweat. I would say it runs slightly on the small side, so if you are debating between sizes, size up. Love the fit, just loose enough for comfort while still flattering. Plan to buy more for outdoor fun!
Will be ordering more!
I’ve worn this shirt the past three days straight! I was initially torn on sizing, between small and medium based on reviews and the relaxed fit. My measurements fell between the largest small and smallest medium. I am so happy I went with medium! It is not as “relaxed” looking as the photo of it laying flat. Medium was hung very well, and I’d be ... Read Moreworried about the small being too clingy especially on my arms. I am 5’7” and 145 for reference, 34B chest. Great sleeve length. I highly recommend this shirt! Wish I ordered it earlier in the summer. The fabric is so nice and smooth, seems durable so far. Will be ordering more!
Great sun protection and love the colors
The long sleeve cool capilene shirts are great for the sunny Idaho summers when I hike and want sun protection. It beats having to reapply sunscreen all the time. I also love the unique colors. The M was a little snug in the armpits so I got the large which is somewhat loose but comfortable.
If you don't have this shirt, then you're missing out. I wear it in direct sunlight in 90+ degree weather (in White) and not once did I feel overheated or regret wearing long sleeves. The sun gets too brutal for my skin, and it's a blessing to own a shirt that protects it
Love the Capilene cool shirts!
These spf shirts are like butter. Extremely soft and light weight. I live in Florida and need to wear long sleeve’s to protect myself from the sun, even when I walk my dog. I’m obsessed with these shirts. I love the graphics and look forward to new patterns. Keep them coming.
Feels like you are wearing nothing
I recently had a spot of melanoma removed from my leg, and have since gotten a lot more serious about sun protection. I'm not a lover of sunblock; I'd rather protect my skin with clothes when possible. I have tried a few different brands of summer weight long sleeve shirts, and they are ok. I finally decided to try the Patagonia Capilene ... Read MoreCool and NOTHING compares with this shirt! It is SO lightweight it feels like you are wearing nothing. I have not tried running in it. But I am in the Midwest where summers are real hot and real sticky, and I have three active kids so we are always outside doing something fun, and this shirt is amazing. I would buy it in every color if I could. I wish there were more options for protective summer weight pants...the back of the calf, where I got Melanoma, is apparently the most common place for women to get it! So Patagonia, we could use some pants options that are as awesomely lightweight as this shirt! Side note: I don't know why people think it runs small. I got a size Small (I usually wear a size XS) and it fits great but is still plenty loose enough to not be clingy (in my opinion a clingy shirt is the last thing you want in heat!)
Tight in Armpits
This shirt has a really unfortunate fit- the body stays loose yet the armpit seams are super tight. For example- the XS was perfect everywhere (mildly relaxed, still close fitting) except the armpits which were unbearably tight. So I bought a S and the armpits were a bit better but still snug while the body was looser than I would have wanted. The ... Read MoreS lasted a week before I returned it- the damn armpit seams were driving me crazy! I loved this shirt otherwise- infinitely soft and cozy. If I went up to a M, I’d be drowning in it. Such a shame. I’m trying the men’s XS (only available here) and hopefully that works.
I bought this shirt with the hopes that I would feel cool in Florida, yet have sun protection. I’m a mother of two, and since buying this shirt, I have worn it 3 times in 1 week! (Yes, washed!) I love feeling comfy, and a little more stylish than just wearing gym clothes on my days off. I pair it with chino shorts. I have a long torso, so I can go ... Read Morebetween sizes. I feel that the medium is perfect for me. It’s not super form fitting, but it hangs really well and I’m glad I went with that size.
