A first layer for aerobic activities in a wide range of temperatures, the Patagonia Capilene® 3 Zip-T top is highly breathable and dries quickly.

  • Patagonia has reinvented its Capilene 3 performance base layers by making them from partially recycled fabric and improving durability, stretch and dry time
  • Smooth exterior of Polartec® Power Dry#&174; polyester slides easily under layers, and its brushed interior feels soft against skin
  • Gladiodor® natural odor control employs benign amino acids to help keep funky scents at bay; plus, it's nonpolluting, safe and durable
  • Zipper is backed by a draft flap and tucks neatly into zipper garage
  • Raglan sleeves and single-piece shoulder panel merge out of the way for increased comfort under a backpack, ski bibs or wader straps
  • Side seams are positioned a bit forward to prevent chafing under a hipbelt
  • Contoured, slim fit minimizes bulk to create an easy-layering garment that won't restrict your movement
  • Hem is long enough in back to stay tucked in
  • Flatlock seams are non-bulky and supple
  • 100% recyclable through Patagonia's Common Threads Recycling Program—simply return your worn out item to Patagonia

Rated3out of5byfromNot Comfortable.I have worn Capilene for years. I have Capilene snap-t's older than my 24 year old nieces... I have been trying to replace some of my 5-10 year old capilene base layers (expedition weight and medium weights with the new versions and have been disappointed. Yes, it does what it is designed for, but the feel on my skin is miserable. Particularly in winter when our skin is dry, the material pulls and grabs at my hands and arms. Not soft or pleasant at all. Until the material changes I won't buy anymore (after buying 3 in the last year) and I will be getting rid of what I have. I'm going to try the "R" series as they seem softer and don't have the "grabby" feeling of the capilene. Been a huge fan for many years, but not now.
