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 Capileneor 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.

Cool Shirt for Exercise
Bought Capline 1 T-Shirt for exercising and warm weather hiking / biking. We won't have warm weather for a few months, but loving it for working out. The shirt run a bit smaller than a typical t-shirt. I'm 6' 2", 180 lbs with a slim build. A large is borderline snug, but very comfortable. These shirt weigh almost nothing and breath great. Don't know about durability yet (I'd keep away from loose Velcro hooks) but the build is great and I'm expecting years of good use. Looks sharp also.

Best T there is
Smooth and comfortable, great temperature regulation, dries in a flash. Looks good in the backcountry and in town. The fit is athletic. The best T there is.

Excellent lightweight baselayer
I own an extensive collection of Patagonia's Capiline baselayer garments, from Capilene 1 to 4. I puchased the Capilene 1 T for summer hiking/backpacking, to be worn under my hiking shirt. This is an extremely comfortable and light (but durable) garment. It is excellent for backpacking, due to its light weight and ease of washing. Patagonia also does a great job with odor control, which I have found to be a problem with cheaper products.

Great wear for humidity
Commuted on my bike wearing this shirt on day with record dew point of 82. Moisture transfer was excellent. Dried quickly. Have not worn it for extended periods without washing.
