Our warmest, most breathable Capilene baselayer is made with low-bulk Polartec® Power Grid™ fabric with Polygiene® permanent odor control and is Fair Trade Certified™ for sewing.
The first choice for alpine climbers needing next-to-skin warmth, exceptional breathability for aerobic sprints and a heat-trapping hood to thaw out cold belays. The micro-grid fleece interior of Patagonia's Capilene® Thermal Weight provides the greatest warmth combined with the greatest breathability of any baselayer in Patagonia's lineup. Soft, stretchy and compressible, Polartec® Power Grid™ fabric has a smooth face that glides beneath layers and a brushed fleece interior to warm your core, wick moisture and feel smooth against your skin. This fabric also has 30–92 % recycled content and is treated with Polygiene® permanent odor control. Product features include a two-layer hood with internal neck tape for next-to-skin comfort, a high collar with anatomical shaping for warmth, a locker loop for hang drying, full underarm gussets for unhindered shoulder mobility, elastic thumb loops for secure hand coverage, flatlock seams that minimize chafing, offset shoulder and side seams that lie smoothly beneath pack straps, and a minimal drop tail for additional coverage.
