I have probably 5 of these and they are hands down my favorite. After each have taken a good beating with working out / skiing / MMA even ... they have maintained their shape and size. Great athletic fit and doesn't wrinkle easily. Absolutely a great product from my favorite brand. Patagonia previously carried a Silkweight-Stretch version of this and I wish they would bring that back as well. Patagonia ... keep up the great work ... God bless!
A silk-weight capiline base layer is the foundation for any outing for me. It is comfortable and breathes well. It wicks and wears well. My only issue is the change of the sizing. Having worn this layer for more than ten years, the same product, same size, has changed considerably. I know that the cuts change - and they all fit - but it is a point worth noting that the L of today is a lot bigger than the L of several years ago.
Bought these for hiking/backpacking/trail running. Fell in love with the fit and comfort. Ended up buying four more pairs and now wear them as work shirts, everyday shirts and for adventures. Amazing wicking properties, keep you cool, but do hold odor. Invest in a better diet and your shirts won't stink!
I wear these shirts (past and present versions) as regular undershirts. Best to wear with a sturdy overshirt in an activity where it might get snagged on vegetation, etc. I usually take a small shirt size; in this case size S fits, pretty snugly, size M also fits, more loosely. If you wash in a high-efficiency front-loading washing machine, be sure no detergent residue is left, because residue reduces moisture-wicking effectiveness. If freshly washed shirts begin to feel a bit sticky in daily use, throw in washer for a rinse cycle.
