With its innovative, seamless, 3-D knit structure, Patagonia's Capilene Air Crew offers amazing warmth and comfort. An airy blend of 51% merino wool and 49% recycled polyester wicks moisture, resists odor and dries in a flash.

Patagonia says:

Capilene® Air is the most advanced baselayer we’ve ever made. It has the greatest range of warmth and comfort of any of our baselayers, insulates even when wet, dries quickly, and resists odors for day after day use. Made from an airy blend of 51% merino wool from New Zealand 49% Capilene® recycled polyester, Capilene® Air feels light and soft on the skin and stretches naturally to move with the body in motion.

We create the soft 18.5-micron-guage-yarns used in Capilene® Air with an innovative airblasting technology that dramatically increases the yarn’s loft while reducing weight compared to traditional wool yarn. Our seamless 3-D construction eliminates chafe points throughout the entire garment and nearly eliminates wasted material. Soft, stretchy elastic knit in the cuffs and hem keep the garment positioned where you want it and add skin-pampering comfort for extended use. With a gender-specific box-stitch texture to trap warmth and allow airflow.

The Capilene Air Crew is Patagonia's most advanced baselayer yet. Constructed from both merino wool and recycled polyester, your basically getting the best qualities of wool and synthetic in just one baselayer. It looks like a sweater with it's 3-D knit structure, but it's not thick like a sweater. Besides look, the only quality it actually shares with a sweater is warmth.

The material feels light and soft on your skin and stretches with you as you move. It offers amazing warmth and comfort, even insulating when wet and will resist odours for multiple use. The neck and wrist hems are soft and stretchy elastic knit so it feels comfortable if you want to to roll up the sleeves.

It's one of the most expensive baselayers on our website but the comfort, breathability and warmth it offers makes it a great versatile piece. I was a little unsure at first about the high price tag for a mid weight baselayer but after researching the technology put into it and actually trying it on, it's now on my wish list.
