Great lightweight bottoms
I used these on a mt hike under my hiking pants and felt warm and comfortable the entire time. The fit seemed a little loose at first but I never noticed it as we bagged our peak in the local mountains. Patagonia quality is first rate and I expect these to last a long time. Excellent baselayer for active outdoor adventures in a cool climate.

Patagonia makes some fantastic baselayers in the Capilene 1,2,3 and 4 versions. This is the lightweight version and is a comfortable shirt to wear, looks good and does a great job of wicking moisture. Not a warm shirt on it's own but works great as a baselayer. Patagonia considers this a slim fit but I think of it more as an athletic fit, fits snug but not tight. It is not compression fit like some other baselayers.

I have used these for the past couple weeks now since Fall has hit and I really like wearing them. In the morning they make the 40 degrees completely bearable and they don't make me too warm when it's 65 and I'm working. Just what I needed for work, hiking, snowboarding, and being out when it's chilly.

I was looking for a base layer for cool weather hiking but don't like compression clothes like Under Armor. So I decided to get these based on other people's reviews. I was more than pleased when these arrived and I tried them out. I am 6'3" and 185 lbs. These fit just right on me and exactly how I wanted them: Not too loose and not too tight. This allows freedom of movement. They are warm but breath so you don't sweat a bunch. If you do sweat, they wick away moisture. They are also extremely lightweight which is great for packing them at all times just in case you encounter unexpected cold weather.

Patagonia Capilene 2 Bottom
Lightweight, quick drying, great for aerobic activities when the mercury drops. I have had mine for five years and when they do wear out, I can recycle them through Patagonia. Can't beat a good performing baselayer that also has a conscious for the environment.
