Patagonia's most advanced baselayer, featuring their innovative 3-D knit structure.
The Capilene Air Crew insulates even when wet, dries quickly and resists odour for day after day use. Made from an airy blend of 51% merino wool from New Zealand 49% Capilene recycled polyester, Capilene Air feels light and soft on the skin and stretches naturally to move with the body in motion.
Patagonia creates the soft 18.5-micron-gauge-yarns used in Capilene Air with an innovative air blasting technology that dramatically increases the yarn’s loft while reducing weight compared to traditional wool yarn. The seamless 3-D construction eliminates chafe points throughout the entire garment and nearly eliminates wasted material.
Soft, stretchy elastic knit in the cuffs and hem keep the garment positioned where you want it and add skin-pampering comfort for extended use. With a gender-specific box-stitch texture to trap warmth and allow airflow.
