I have Capilene 1 pants and shirts in black and blue, and they work great as a silk weight baselayer. They are really plain though, and I wanted something with a little more pizzazz for running, wearing alone, or for the beach. The mango color of this shirt is great, bright, but not too bright. I use a medium as a baselayer, but I got large for this one, and the fit it a little looser, great for what I'm doing. Cap 1 is great for running and hiking. It wick sweat like crazy, and if it gets wet, it dries quickly. The only thing I wish Patagonia would change to make their regular Cap 1 even better is to use stretch material for the neck band. You have to be a little careful with when putting it on or taking it off so you don't stretch the neck out of shape.
