Patagonia Women's Capilene® Air Crew Neck Shirt

True To Size
April 11, 2022

Cozy feel with great mobility.

This is a warm base layer that is so comfortable (I love the bottoms too). You don't feel any seams and the mobility is great for active wear as well as lounging around. I usually wear a small in Patagonia tops, but this item was very snug, and the wool was a little itchy with the tight fit, so I exchanged for a medium which feels great.

Love it

I want to wear it every day all day. It is perfectly cozy. Not too hot, not too thin. It looks great standing alone, but fits nicely under layers. The length is great for being physical, it doesnt ride up your back. I plan to winter hike with it as a base layer. Before next winter however, I may wear it out as I dont want to take it off!

March 13, 2022

So comfy & warm

I bought this as a snowboarding base layer but ended up wearing it day to day because its so cute with leggings and cozy. Went back to buy it in another color and it was sold out, next time!

outdoor mainstay

One of my favorite layers on the trail. Fabric is great at dumping heat while channeling cool air to the core. Perfect if you're heading out in 40° and coming home sweaty in the 70°s. I have the hoodie and the crew which both get plenty of use. The hoodie I've had for about two years and it just keeps getting softer and more well-loved. T... Read Morehe crew is newer and by comparison the hoodie is clearly holding its shape and defending its title as one of the most dependable layers in the mix.

Super soft

Super soft shirt and I love the color. I'm 5'5" and 115 pounds and the XS fits great.

February 15, 2022

Nice base layer

The top fits perfectly: not too snug, not too loose, and I love the cable knit pattern. From my experience, wool base layers are itchy on my skin, but with this one it's not bad. I still wear it with a tank top underneath though and it does keep me warmer than other types of base layers.

So comfy

Really comfortable and with cold weather its the perfect shirt

February 6, 2022

Functional Light layer

Love this light weight capeline. Great for travel and transition to hike and walk and ski! Great layer with vest. Love the longer length for my height- 59.

January 27, 2022

Nice and Toasty

Though I am not convinced at the durability of the material (and how long it's going to last before snagging on a zipper or the many other things out there) this top is super warm. It looks small, but stretches and fits at a "slim fit" but comfortably... not to tight anywhere, just tight enough to the body to layer.

January 24, 2022


I love this shirt, it's super comfortable, super warm, and I don't get stinky sweaty in it. Perfect for casual wear, and for playing winter beach volleyball since the sleeves stay put.

January 19, 2022

super warm

I love the bright blue color and I love the shirt. It is the second of this one that I have had/. I would highly recommend it

January 8, 2022

Perfect layer for winter / snow sports

This is my go-to base layer for skiing and hiking in the winter. I also have the hooded version for colder days when I want something up around my neck. It is soft and feels very light yet does a good job of keeping the warmth in. I layer with one other wind proof piece and then my insulated jacket on cold days. Its perfect!

December 31, 2021

Just right warmth

Its soft which is important to me. I first got an xxs which is what I usually wear from Patagonia. But it was a little too tight. Xs is just right.

December 27, 2021

warm and comfortable

I bike commute year round in Minnesota and was tired of my synthetic base layer and decided to try this instead. So glad I did! It is warm, soft, comfortable and wicks away sweat so I don't arrive at work feeling damp. Love it!

December 19, 2021

Light weight, so, so warm!

I bought one and like it so much, I bought another one from Backcountry; I visited my daughter, she loved it so much, I came back here and got her one, as well! Great product!

December 7, 2021

Love the fit, hate the pilling

I like the texture of the fabric and the fit of this shirt. The length is just right, it doesn't ride up, form-flattering without overly constraining movement. It never goes to town, though. One needs a sweater shaver to address the copious amounts of pilling. This shirt is relegated to trail-only use, when it shouldn't have to be.

Response from Patagonia
December 10, 2021

Hi Laura, thanks for taking the time to write your thoughts on the Capilene Air Crew Neck Shirt and we're very sorry to hear it has begun to pill. Pilling can be inevitable with knit garments as it is the nature of those fibers, though as you mentioned, a fabric shaver should do the trick to get rid of it and help it look good as new! To prevent pilling in the future, try washing it either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get upbraided. Of course, if you aren't satisfied with this product, you may consider sending it in for [warranty evaluation](

My favorite shirt

It's excellent at thermoregulation, soft, and durable. I own two, and my current strategy is wearing this at work (I like to think I'm pulling it off with a pencil skirt or tucked into dress pants) or while hiking, though I had to delegate one exclusively to hiking only after it got scruffed up (but didn't rip!) after I recklessly ba... Read Morerreled through some thorny and dense underbrush while hiking on a poorly-defined "trail". To clarify, the only defects with the shirt that I caused by badly mistreating it are minor cosmetic ones that don't impact its ability to function as a fantastic base layer

thin material, not warm

would not recommend for base layer as material is super thin and not warm

Response from Patagonia

Hi Paula, we're very sorry the Capilene Air Crew Neck Shirt didn't work for you and that you didn't find it warm enough as a baselayer. If you're looking for an alternative, you may want to consider checking out the [Capilene Thermal Weight Crew](

Warm and stretchy and soft!

I bought this to replace some super worn out base layers. It is perfect. I am usually a straight up medium (5'3", 150#, carry my weight in my mid section) but I ordered a small in this because I loved the purple color and it fits great.

November 16, 2021

Comfortable and warm

Its so comfortable I never want to take it off. Perfect base layer

Absolutely beautiful color but crazy itchy. For this price I was so disappointed. Returned

A cold old lady LOVES and APPRECIATES this item!

This is my 4thCapilene Air Crew shirt...I really AM most cold blooded and need base layers that take good care of me...and this is THE ITEM. I wear them all day every day now that November is here. It is light, good colors, easy to keep clean...and sincerely important to my well being at 87!! Thanks patagonia, for being the good company you are!!

Stylish and comfortable

I already owned the black sweater and loved it so much I purchased the blue one. I love that it's warm, yet stylish. It's my go to sweater.

I most often wear this shirt as a top (not only as a layer), and like my tops loose. The material is soft and holds its shape and texture well so it stays tidy-looking!

Lose the tag, Patagonia!

This is an amazing shirt. Its warm, breathes well, has no seams or tight corners that chafe BUT it has a cloth sewn-in tag that makes absolutely no sense for a base layer.

My Absolute Favorite "Sweater"

I absolutely love this garment. I use it as a workplace appropriate "sweater" in the office. I use it as a hiking layer, as a baselayer for skiing, and as a "put together" sweater for drinks out on a weeknight. The best part? I can wash it in my washing machine and set in the sun to dry.

Warm and soft!

I bought this for a trip to Iceland and it worked beautifully. This top is very warm, thin (so you can easily layer) and comfortable. I highly recommend for cold/windy temps!

September 16, 2021

Super warm

A loose knit base layer that is lightweight, warm and stylish. Can be worn as a casual sweater.

Best ever

I love this. Its Very handsome, super comfortable, all-weather.

Warm and comfortable

This base layer is fitted and will work perfectly when hiking in cooler temps. I am tall (5'9") and the sleeves and top are a great length. I can't wait to use this for an upcoming trip to Iceland!

Great for on or off trail

Perfect outer layer for late spring through fall mornings on the trail. Versatile enough to wear out to dinner. My new go to shirt,

Very comfortable, light but warm

I love this shirt, I use it for everything actually. My daughter gifted me my first one, but I had to buy another one. Thank you !!

The softest most comfortable wool base layer ever!

I absolutely love putting this sweater on. it is soft, warm, cozy, casual but yet dressy. Great to layer or wear on its own. One of my favorite pieces of clothing I own!

Snagged first time I wore it

Purple is nice bright color, lightweight and perfect for layering. However snagged on my first time of wearing. At this price, I expect a better product. This was a disappointment.

Response from Patagonia
March 16, 2021

Thank you for your review on our Capilene Air Crew Neck Shirt. Unfortunately, there isn't any knit that isn't prone to snagging, the loose fibers make it more susceptible. With that said, all our items are backed by our Ironclad Guarantee, so if you find that you aren't happy with your purchase, you're welcome to [send it back]( for warranty evaluation.

Versatile Warmth

I have two of these crew neck shirts. It has the feel of a sweater and can be worn to add warmth for a walk as easily as be dressy enough for a business Zoom call or causal night out. I like a roomy fit, so bought a size up but, runs true to size.

February 28, 2021


I play lots of paddle tennis. Tho the weather is often cold, one can become very hot from playing. Love how this shirt sucks sweat. Just right. Warm but not too warm. I love this shirt and have bought others. Main go to for winter play.

Super warm and awesome at wicking.

I have recommended this top to all my friends and they love it too. It is all you need when you fat tire bike or skate ski (or any other sport that you warm up fast) in the winter with a light shell.

Thank you for making this in XXS!

I am so thankful to see XXS sizes available. This top is so soft and comfy, LOVE it (and love that it fits perfectly).

Best throw on ever

Purchased two last year at the home store for a weekend trip to Ojai. Truly the BEST. Keeps me warm when needed but never too hot. Easy to stuff in your bag for when needed. They have kept their shape thru numerous washings/dryings too. Just got a third and will order more in the future!! This is my go to piece.

February 8, 2021

Soooo comfy

As soon as I put this shirt on, I knew I would love it. It's stretchy and soft, the shoulders fit great, and the sleeves are long enough for my long arms. On a recent trip, I wore it a few days in a row and it stayed smelling fine - in contrast to my 100% Capilene wear which tends to trap odors. I also like the neckline - though it's not ... Read Moreas flattering for casual wear, its high design is warm and practical for active pursuits in cooler weather. The torso is also long enough not to expose anything when I'm reaching (something I appreciate since I have a bit of a belly these days).

Great for skiing!

I wore this cross country skiing and it was wonderful! The fabric is very comfortable, warm and wicks moisture very well. I was hesitant due to price but am so happy with the purchase.

Really like this!

I was a little skeptical because this is a thin, lightweight shirt, but it's really effective in keeping you warm without bulk.

Lightweight breathable warmth

Our daughter gifted this in a Medium which usually works for my 135 lb 56 frame. Since its super-stretchy it did fit - as a clingy base layer. But i also wanted to wear it without covering it. And the M revealed the muffin Ive gained during Covid lockdowns. So I swapped it for a Large - which works great: close not clingy. Very comfortable! Love it... Read More!

Love the color

Feels soft as if it has cashmere in it (which it doesnt). Nice and long to keep the small of your back warm. And the color pops.

January 7, 2021

comfort and fit

e shirt is super comfy and warm and fits so nicely. It does not cling when worn as a shirt, but fits nicely under a turtleneck sweater for extra warmth when needed. I love this. I was afraid the wool might be itchy, but it is not at all.

January 5, 2021

So soft

Perfect fit. True to size. The sleeves hit me mid hand which is perfect for cooler morning walks and they push up and stay put easily for when it gets warmer. Color is pretty - hardest part for me is determining if this shirt should be used as casual wear or for workouts/active wear. Such a dilemma!

January 3, 2021

Love it

I didn't realize I could like a baselayer so much. I find that I reach for this shirt almost every day- whether for skiing, running, hiking, even for Zoom work calls! I am 5'5," 120 lbs. and the S fits well.

Only base layer you need

I bought this base layer bc it looked soft and flexible online. WOW! I havent taken it off since. Its warm and soft and I can wear it for days without needing to wash it. I want to return other base layers I bought separately bc theyre unnecessary now that I have this. I ordered the pants version recently.

More than a baselayer

First off I love this garment (I have in black). I've worn it as a shirt, a baselayer, and a sweater. Size down if you really want a formfitting baselayer. Great temperature regulation and looks put together and was perfect for my month long winter Europe light backpack trip. I wear it all the time as it takes a lot to really get this thing gr... Read Moreimy so it doesn't need that many washings and doesnt' hold onto smells (or so my family tells me!) Does attract dog hair and after heavy use has pilled slightly, BUT I bought a Sweater Stone (as was recommended by staff) to fix that right up which it mostly did. Caution: be VERY careful when using a Sweater Stone on this fabric because I pretty easily tore two small holes in the front, which considering the price is a HUGE bummer and reduces the versatility of the garment (still functional for keeping warm but not great for looking good). User error and c'est la vie. I will try to nab another color when/if it ever goes on sale and recommend to anyone looking for a truly wearable garment. Would love it in primary colors, earth tones, neutrals, everything. Mock neck would be great too. I could just go on. Great for people who really value their material objects, as it is just great design. Bury me in this.

November 19, 2020

Perfect for mid temperature days

I wear this one when I don't need anything around my neck if I'm going to be working and getting warmer. I wear it next to my skin for maximum breathability. If it is super windy I add a vest. I love how comfortable these are.

So disappointed!

This base layer is super warm, but only after one wear and wash (I hand-washed and air-dried it) it developed a hole and it pills so badly all overit looks terrible. For how expensive it was, I was really hoping it would hold up longer. Super disappointed. :(

Response from Patagonia
December 4, 2020

Thank you for the feedback on that and we're so sorry to hear about the pilling after one wear. Sadly, we do see pilling happen on knit garments and it can be unavoidable in many circumstances. With that being said though, you can usually remove those at home or you are always welcome to [return]( anything you aren't happy with.

So light and stretchy

Great lightweight yet warm, stretchy and flattering base layer. Bought both XXS (Dark Green) and XS (Bright pink) for my 32A 103# frame.

But there's a lot of tall skinny climber chicks out there with money to spend on well-made technical clothing.

Best Baselayer/Product EVER.

Really thrilled with the quality, fit and comfort . I am long of limb and it is so nice to find garments with length to spare. I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for. I'll be wearing my Patagonia for years to come!

This is a game changer. I was a bit hesitant on the warmth vs cooling as I work in remote lodges and it can be very cold, but I'm also moving around a lot. It's like I'm wearing nothing at all! The wind doesn't transfer throughout it and the warmth stays in. When I am very active the sweat is instantly wicked away. I've wor... Read Moren it for 5 days now and it doesn't stink (Not a lot of access to laundry) If you're on the fence about this like I was- buy this and add it to your permanent collection because it is WELL worth it!

Warmes baselayer ever!

Nice looking snd very warm. Perfect!

November 27, 2019

Another staple

The cap air is incredible. Perfect for cold weather running. Anything above 45 degrees and you might get hot. Also transitions well for causal or work wear because it looks so nice. I will be buying another!

SO WARM. I run cold

SO WARM. I run cold so I wear it under lots of things in the winter, even just running to the grocery store. I get warm but not stinky-sweaty.

Love it!

This soft warm top is so comfortable I want to wear it all the time. It's also great looking, with lots of texture and nice details like the slightly darker trim around the wrists and the gently rolled neck opening. I usually wear it over a light weight T while road biking or for yoga and often get the comment, "Nice sweater! Where'd... Read More you get it?" I'd wear it out to dinner too, but don't want to spill food on it. With a windbreaker on top, it's unbeatable for warmth. I'm 5'6", weigh about 115, and the Small is a great fit. For a more rugged fabric, try the capilene thermal weight crew: good for climbing/mntn biking, can be washed several times a week with no special care, and is very warm.

Love this base layer!

I was so excited to get this, and really fell in love with it off the bat. I'm in between small and medium sizes, but the medium just had a little too much material for me. I'm 5'2" and 143lbs but slim build on top. The material is soft and I haven't had issues with itchiness either. Really pleased with the purchase and wou... Read Moreld definitely buy this again.

the best I have ever found.

These Capilene Air pieces are the best. They keep you from getting sweaty while keeping you warm and comfortable. They have become my go-to tops for almost all my activities. Can't go skiing without this layer & my cold weather mountain bike riding is much more comfortable without overheating. This top is easy to wash and dry and has heald...

Soft and Warm

Love love this new base layer! It’s light as a cloud and very warm. I used it for the first time on a horseback ride in 40 degree weather and was so pleased. It washed beautifully too!

November 23, 2019

Love this sweater

Love this sweater. Slim, flattering fit. I am a dress size 6 and bought in medium. Good quality, lightweight yet warm. I wear to work. Thin enough to wear under blazer. I intend to purchase in more colors. Would recommend.

November 23, 2019

Great piece!!

Lightweight, warm, and is nice enough to be worn as a sweater Im 5'7-135 lbs. The small fits-probably like its supposed to, but I opted for the medium so I could also wear it like a sweater.

November 22, 2019


Very light weight and seemed that it would be warm for weight but I wanted to wear next to skin and was too itchy for me so I sent it back.

Sorry to hear the Capilene Air was too itchy for you, but we really appreciate the great feedback, Ona! In the future, we're happy to [help]( you [return]( the item to a Patagonia-owned store or to our main service center for merchandise credit or a refund, so don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Love it!

Not super soft, it is wool after all, but much softer than lots of other wool garments out there. The structure feels great. So light and breathable and yet so warm too. Amazing. I will be using this for work, casual, going out on the town and of course epic exercise adventuring - it really can do it all! 5’7” 140 / straight build and the medium is... Read More perfect. Snug but plenty of room to move and stretch and nicely long (hits mid-butt pulled all the way down).

November 22, 2019

Love the Air

Got a medium bc that's all that was left, but could have probably used a small... great price for the thermal air... love, love, love

MT hiker

The capilene air crew met my expectations and more. It is soft and warm, great as an underlayer or comfortable on its own in warmer conditions. Lightweight and warm, can't beat that. I was previously a fan of the merino wool top, that has been discontinued, and this is the first time I have found an item to replace it for warmth and comfort.

November 22, 2019

Great top

This is an amazing top. Works for long underwear but can also pair with jeans. Very warm. I plan to buy in every color.

November 21, 2019

wish I knew about this earlier

great fit, great feel and the perfect layer for cold nights or but also breathable if worn as a layer for cold weather activities

November 21, 2019

So comfy!

This top has been super comfortable and warm as a base layer. It looks cute on its own too. I have both the top and the bottoms and the top seems to be holding up better than the bottoms.

November 21, 2019

So warm (and soft)

Love this top - it fits nicely and is very warm.

Too big...

This top is super warm! But, way to big. I am 5'7", 130 lbs, I ordered this top among several others in small and they were all too big.

Hi Kristina, thanks for writing us a review. We're sorry to hear about the disappointment with the crew. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

I bought the Capilene Air Crew. It is warm, yet light. I will wear it often in the winter. I like the crew neck, so many winter shirts are too low around the neck and don't keep me warm enough. This crew is not too tight, it is just right.

warmth and comfort

so far love it I used it for light walks and hikes around the our town in the Rocky Mountain, in 0 F degrees and it was pretty awesome. My only concern and question is how well it will last over time.

November 9, 2019

It’s so fluffy

Cozy but also a solid layer. I stayed warm with just that layer at 45* weather

November 7, 2019

Great quality

I bought these to match the bottom base layer and the top is awesome. Super warm and incredibly comfy

One of the warmest base-layers ever!

Magic Top!

Wore this on a multi-day backpacking trip through the Grand Canyon and it was so comfortable/versatile/warm/cool/quick drying! New favorite top. I'm 5'3", 125 pounds and the small fit well.

fantastic sweater!

Perfect fit and very comfortable , light and warm

October 31, 2019


I was not expecting to see so many finishing flaws in the shirt such as loose threads. In addition, it runs very small. I am 5'0 and weigh 115 pounds - I ordered a medium and it is snug except for the sleeves that go beyond my fingertips. I washed it and hung it to dry and it shrunk so now I cannot wear it at all.

We're sorry to hear this shrunk and that it has some loose threads. As always, you are welcome to [return]( it back to us under warranty. We went ahead and emailed you a free shipping label in this instance. Thank you for your review!

Stretchy, soft, and warm

My new favorite. 5'3" 125lb size small is perfect fit. You may need an undershirt - the material is sheer so a dark bra makes the shirt see-through if you aren't wearing layers over it.

I have this crew in the gray and I LOVE it! I live in Montana where the winter is brutally cold. I used it for running, skiing, hiking, and mountain biking last year during a record breaking winter!

Best Baselayers I've Owned!

I am someone who is always cold. Always. I was a bit skeptical at first when I saw this sweater but ended up reaching for it every day and bought more colours so I didn't feel guilty about wearing the same shirt every day.

SO warm & lightweight

I am chronically cold due to an illness that caused me to lose a substantial amount of weight. I was looking for a warm base layer for everyday life that wasn’t bulky. This fit the bill. It made me so toasty. It’s pricey, but definitely worth it. If I can afford another, I’ll buy one bc I think I’ll be wearing this every day during my New England f... Read Moreall & winter. Thanks!

Runs a little big

I bought this top to use for layering during longer bike rides. It keeps me perfectly warm and was so soft. I ordered a large thinking it may run small but really I could’ve gotten a medium, the arms are a little long too. I’m a 10/12 size and 34DD.

Expensive garbage

I’m hiking the Portuguese Camino right now. This is my go-to sweater bought specifically for this trip, but won’t be as soon as I’m back in Canada. The 3-D weave although you might THINK it’s great, is completely worn off and pilled up where my pack sits and looks like crap.

The Capilene Air Crew is light and snug. It's warm, but breathes for me well. Well done Patagonia!

Love the Air crew

I love to layer this and it feels nice against the skin. XS at 106 lbs is just right.

September 10, 2019

Favorite Baselayer

I bought my first Cap Air Crew last winter and found myself digging through my laundry basket every time I went skiing and decided it was time to add another to my rotation. This is also a piece I wear casually since it looks so much like a regular. Great ski day to Apres piece!

August 9, 2019

Great Base Layer

Capelene Air Crew Long underwear is the first base layer containing wool that has not caused any skin irritation or itchiness on my skin. It is so comfortable, flexible, and nearly weightless, Yet, it certainly keeps you warm. The open weave and texture is quite an ingenious invention. Congratulations to the Patagonia fabric engineers.

June 26, 2019

Classic all-around piece for looks and performance

I would call this a light sweater. It's so nice, I haven't yet worn it for activities involving sweat. But that time will come while traveling and adventuring! The cut, fit, material (soft, no itch and no chafe for my sensitive skin) and features are all high quality and functional. Hugs in all the right places for my taste.

June 25, 2019

Fit and texture are great

I thought this would be a good layer for chilly riding conditions and luckily, I was right. I ended up buying 2 for a 4-day bike-pack tour. I slept in it, wore it when it was damp from dew. I also wore it on the 4th day without washing it and it was just fine. Great casual sweater and was not itchy or too hot, except in direct sun while exercising ... Read More/ riding uphill. Got tons of compliments from other riders, too! Style points.

Can’t live without Capiline Air

I used my leggings and top all winter and now am using them into spring. Went on a road trip south and was able to throw them on during chilly nights. They are warm when you need them to be but they vent if it’s a bit cooler. I love them. The texture is interesting but I personally loved it. I will be getting another set going into winter!

The Everything Shirt

Capeline Air. A fine merino sweater destined for adventure. Is it expensive? Yes. But I wore this recently for 5 days straight. It was laundry day, but I was busy.

Well it is nice, but it's SO nice you can wear it as a base layer all the way to a fine sweater over a collared shirt for a PTA function ON THE SAME DAY. tldr; buy it, no regret.

April 12, 2019

Looked terrific...before I wore it.

I purchased a black Capilene Air crewneck and a navy Capilene Air hoody (fall 2018). I wore the crewneck twice before a large hole appeared on the front of the garment.

Best thing ever

This is the softest, warmest, most breathable baselayer ever. I’ve worn it almost every day this winter, from skiing to working in the shop. The fabric is a little delicate, but it’s still worth the price. And yes, it pills, but I appreciate it’s functionality enough to overlook that. I want 5 more. Please keep making this product!

March 8, 2019

Great idea. Looks terrible after one wash.

I loved the feel of this baselayer. It's warm, but stretchy (unlike heavier Capilene). After one wash, the top was totally pilled. After three washes, it had a handful of holes in the fabric.
