Patagonia's lightest-weight, fastest-drying and best-wicking baselayer, with Polygiene permanent odor control and Fair Trade Certified sewing.

Patagonia says:

Some of the best days are the sweatiest—like when you start full throttle in the morning and end wandering by headlamp to find the trailhead. We make our Capilene Lightweight, our lightest-weight, fastest-drying and best-wicking baselayer, for days like this. The fabric’s subtle grid pattern sits lightly and comfortably on the skin, while the smooth outer face glides easily in any layering system. Highly breathable for high-exertion and warm conditions, the fabric is 100% recycled polyester with Polygiene permanent odor control. Features include a self-fabric collar with internal neck tape for chafe-free comfort, full underarm gussets for unhindered shoulder mobility, flatlock seams that minimize chafing, offset shoulder and side seams that lie smoothly beneath pack straps, and a drop tail for additional coverage. Fair Trade Certified sewing.

 Fair Trade Certified™ 

We pay a premium for every Fair Trade Certified item that carries our label. That extra money goes directly to the workers at the factory, and they decide how to spend it. The program also promotes worker health and safety and social and environmental compliance, and encourages dialog between workers and management. Fair Trade is one of the first tools we’re using at Patagonia to raise workers’ wages, improve their standard of living and move them closer to earning a living wage.



 Capilene® Polyester Baselayer 

Made from moisture-wicking polyester, Capilene® synthetic baselayers wick moisture away from your skin, breathe efficiently and dry fast to provide the foundation for any layering system for any pursuit. Designed for fast-forward, aerobic activities, they’re quick to wick and quick to dry. Capilene polyester is made from recycled polyester (30% recycled content or more) and is also machine washable.

We make four Capilene fabrics for different levels of exertion and temperatures. All Capilene fabrics have achieved bluesign® approval; have an updated and consistent fit in each fabric weight; and use Polygiene® technology to control odor in the garment. They are the best baselayer option for high-sweat activities and wet conditions.



Patagonia's Capilene Lightweight T-Shirt is a lightweight technical tee that is breathable, high wicking and quick drying. It is perfect for warmer conditions and high intensity activities. The soft, silky feel of the fabric make it comfortable even when you have been working hard and sweating for a while. The tiny grid design increase the breathablility and its ability to wick sweat away and dry quickly.

There are offset, flatlock seams on the shoulders reduce the risk of chaffing while wearing a pack. The inclusion of Polygiene stops this t-shirt from smelling too bad after exercise and I found it was still fresh to wear the next day after a night of wild camping which is great.

Super lightweight and breathable

I like this top as it's unbelievably light and airy. Breathes well and dries super quickly. However, I have experienced some chaffing from it when running in warmer conditions - which is where I would have expected it to be at its best.
