Patagonia Men’s Capilene® Cool Lightweight Shirt is designed for movement and high exertion, Patagonia Capilene® Cool Lightweight is our lightest, fastest-drying, best wicking technical fabric for hot days. It moves moisture quickly and breathes exceptionally well to keep you cool and dry across the full range of active, high-output agendas. Made of 100% recycled polyester double knit (heathers have 37% recycled content; stripes have 83% recycled content), Capilene® Cool Lightweight has a smooth outer face that glides easily in any layering system; it feels weightless, airy and free on the skin and with Polygiene® permanent odor control you won’t stink up the celebratory beerfest at the end of your long run. Details include a classic go-anywhere crewneck design, set-in sleeves for chafe-free comfort and total shoulder mobility, a slight drop-tail hem for a stay-put fit under a harness or hip belt and a clean, snag-free woven label on the front-hem. It’s Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, which means the people who made it earned a premium for their labor.

Capilene® Polyester Baselayer
Made from moisture-wicking polyester, Capilene® synthetic baselayers wick moisture away from your skin, breathe efficiently and dry fast to provide the foundation for any layering system for any pursuit. Designed for fast-forward, aerobic activities, they’re quick to wick and quick to dry. Capilene polyester is made from recycled polyester (30% recycled content or more) and is also machine washable.
Patagonia make four Capilene fabrics for different levels of exertion and temperatures. All Capilene fabrics have achieved bluesign® approval; have an updated and consistent fit in each fabric weight; and use Polygiene® technology to control odor in the garment. They are the best baselayer option for high-sweat activities and wet conditions.
Polygiene® odor control permanently protects your garments from smelling like a middle school locker room. Sweat itself is odorless, but it creates the conditions that bacteria need to multiply, and some of those bacteria produce odors. Polygiene permanent odor control stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, so you can wear more and wash less.
Active only on the fabric surface, Polygiene permanent odor control does not interfere with perspiration or with the skin’s natural bacterial flora. Polygiene particles are more than 100 times larger than nanoparticles and therefore are too large to penetrate to the skin’s barrier. Polygiene-treated fabrics have received Medical Class 1 approval in Europe, the same class that includes bandages.
