Patagonia Men's Capilene 1 Graphic Crew
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.

love patagonia capaline
This works great. I use it in the spring when im hiking and skiing corn, or road biking in the heat of summer it breaths and cools and keeps the sun off my arms so I dont need to put on lots of sunscreen. I would use this any time I think I might be hot and getting lots of sun. I also love the versatility for a wide variety of activities it works for and it feels like silk.

Extremely comfortable. Warm when it's cool and cool when it's warm.

best base layer out there
I love these shirts. perfect first layer for what I use them for - saltwater flyfishing. Light, silky, and very comfy. Dries quickly and, unlike other shirts of this type, doesn't have a weird odor after use. I've completely made the transition to synthetics while out on the water in my kayak, and Patagonia does synthetics best. The Capilene 1 is the best!
