Patagonia Capilene baselayers are intended to be worn under your clothing as your first layer of defense against the elements. The innovative Capilene fabrics are capable of wicking moisture in order to quickly dry and perhaps more surprisingly is the polyester fabric’s ability to stay warm while wet. Availability in four unique Capilene fabrics means you’ll have no problem finding the appropriate Patagonia Capilene for whatever the conditions happen to be where you are or where you’re going. These baselayers by Patagonia are 100% recyclable and composed of at least 50% recycled polyester. Those with intense body odors need not worry as Patagonia Capilene baselayers boast their innovative Gladiodor natural odor control system which works by killing bacteria with molecular spears while simultaneously absorbing odor inducing chemical compounds.
