Patagonia Men's Capilene 1 Bottoms
Silky-soft Capilene 1 is the lightest of all our technical baselayers. A master at managing moisture to keep you cool during active use in warm to sweltering conditions, it also helps protect from the sun and acts as an excellent quick-wicking baselayer beneath heftier Capilene or wool insulation when the mercury plummets. Made from 100% post-consumer recycled (and 100% recyclable) Capilene 1 polyester, with Gladiodor natural odor control. Made in USA. Common Threads Recycling ProgramResearch shows that the environmental impact of recycling worn-out Capilene base layers into new polyester fiber is significantly lower than making that same fiber from virgin materials. Taking into account that worn-out garments are diverted from trash incinerators, making new polyester fiber from recycled garments results in an energy savings of 76% and a CO2 emissions [greenhouse gasses] reduction of 71%, versus creating that fiber from new raw material. Capilene Core PerformanceCapilene base layers afford quick-drying, next-to-skin moisture management for all activities in all conditions ? from high-altitude bivies to sun-soaked water sports.

Essential winter wear
I am very impressed with these. Very light weight and extremely comfortable. When I wear them I forget that I am wearing them. The fit is very good. I plan to buy three more pairs.

Won't hike without them...!!!
I bought my first pair of Pataongia Capilene 1 bottoms when I was hiking the Appalachian Trail. I bought them as an extra layer to deal with the cold weather. They turned out to be my best investment of the entire hike..!! They work great by themself or under a pair of rain pants. They wick away moisture effiently and dry quickly. They fit great, and are very comfortable when I'm running or hiking. When I'm hiking I always them in my pack, they are great to sleep in on warm summer nights..!

Patagonia never fails me
I hesitated to buy these but I thought they might be good to wear under work clothes in moderate conditions. They are extremely thin and don't provide a ton of insulation - but that's the point. I wore them through a cold rainstorm under Patagonia Rock Guide pants and it was a perfect combination to keep me cool and dry. The problem with 'trying' Patagonia stuff is that I never end up sending it back!

Excellent Patagonia product, fits a bit loose, but that may make them more comfortable for most people

Great product - I will purchase again.
These have a great fit and feel. The perfect base layer for cool weather hiking, but I plan to use them for sleeping.
