The Patagonia Menís Capilene Midweight Zip Neck is one of the most versatile layering pieces on the market today and is perfect for cold to moderate temperatures.
Functional both worn on its own and as a base layer underneath other jackets and outerwear, this is a wonderful garment for mild, early fall afternoons and bone-chilling, chest-deep winter steelhead adventures. The capilene midweight fabric is lightweight, breathable, and has incredible wicking abilities. Manufactured with Polartec Power Grid fabric, this capilene baselayer has a smooth face for easy layering and a brushed grid pattern next to the skin, which provides superior warmth and moisture wicking capabilities. This piece also features a long center-front zipper, which allows for maximum core ventilation, and offset shoulder seams to eliminate chafing under pack straps. Even better, this garment has 93% recycled-polyester content and it has been treated with Polygiene permanent odor control. If it bears the Patagonia name, you know it has been constructed with environmentally friendly materials and practices.
