Rated3out of5byA7DavefromNot 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.
