Great Baselayer
I really like this baselayer. I have worn it climbing in sub-20 degree weather and also in 50 degree hiking. Very soft next to my skin unlike a few other baselayers I've trid. It also wicks well. It isn't warm but if you wanted warm, you'd buy a heavier weight layer anyway. I prefer to keep a thin breathable layer next to me. I really like the front zipper to help cool off when needed. I think the fit is pretty true to size. I'm 6' and 162lb with a long and thin frame. I prefer things slightly loose so went with the large. I think the medium likely would have been just fine as well if I wanted more of an athletic fit. Highly recommend.

Patagonia Capilene 2 Zip Neck
This mock turtle, 1/4 zip shirt is now one of my favorites. It's form fitting with a bit of stretch so it is very good at wicking. I find that I can use it as a base layer and also as a casual winter shirt. I'm 5 ft 11 in, 190 lbs and an XL fits perfectly.

Love em
My son wears these like a t shirt. The style adds a step up so he can look put together. Perfect for staying warm without the bulkiness of always having to wear a jacket if outside walking between classes.

Love this base layer
This works perfect I have been using this same style for 18 years and find it very versatile from a base layer in the winter to a extra just in case layer in the summer.

This is my second Capilene long-sleeve base layer. My other is a 3. I give a 4 for Comfort only because I think for this lighter-weight shirt the neck is to long. Others may like it.
