Lives up to abuse

I have several long sleeve and short sleeve Capilene 1 base layers that I run in. This was my first time trying a Capilene 2...and I love it. I went on a two hour trail run this morning with temps at 48f and typical Pacific Northwest rain. I never felt wet as the shirt moved moisture from sweat and rain away from my skin the entire time. The shirt left my body feeling perfect...like crawling under a down comforter late at night with the heat turned off. It has a soft feel, and manages body temps well. When the wind picked up, I didn't suffer from chills as the wind tried to cut through me. Great product and plan on picking up another one...or two.

I have owned a couple of versions of Capilene 2 including the latest iteration. I've worn it, around town, as an undershirt, skiing, climbing, backpacking and it never lets me down.
This past summer I even used it as a towel to dry out the inside of my tent after an awesome storm caught me in the open. The next day I put it on wet and it dried out so fast I was amazed.
The new model fits kinda tight at first but it has formed to fit me since I first got it. I am a size small 5' 11" 150lbs.

A must for cold weather activities

I wear this top about four days a week and definitely when the temperature is cold in the morning and then a mild warmer change during the day, I like to use a top over a dri-fit tee and then layer a windproof jacket over the capilene. It is also excellent for very cold days even down into the twenties as a base layer for heavier jackets and down. This top is also great for an early fall hike as it is warm enough for the cool mornings and yet light enough not a weight down your day pack.

great base-layer/ shirt + thumb loops!

Very nice fit and comfortable. Unlike some of the more 'silky' baselayers out there, this one has the wonderful capilene feeling-- like cotton, but also substantial in terms of wicking and warm. This is a capilene 2, so it is really good as a base on fairly cold days (10F) with a vest and shell, or as a stand alone shirt on 40F days. And maybe the best quality of all is the great thumb loops that make layering easy.

I've already used this on some good snowshoe hikes, so it has earned its place.
Vestal Mike at Campmor on 12/12/2013

Light and breathable.

Knew it was meant to fit as a tight base layer, so went up a size to wear as a loose base or properly fitting mid. Know that capilene has come a long way, but still holds a smell more than i'd like after a few wears. All in all, would absolutely buy again when more go on sale. Love it, but can't justify the price at full.

Awesome piece

The Capilene 2 top is one of my favorite baselayers. It provides the perfect amount of stretch. Some baselayers that I have are too tight and are uncomfortable, if I go up a size I find them to be too baggy. The nature of the Capilene 2 fabric allows it to mold to the body without too much tightness. Great multipurpose piece!!!

Solid baselayer

This baselayer is choice! It feels so good next to my skin, and it is a flattering cut for someone built more like a stick than an inverted pear!
Teed at REI on 10/10/2013

Good item

Good for stand alone for hot or cold as well as a base layer for activity.
