CapileneŽ Midweight is the perfect midlayer for athletes who do a little of everything. A bit more substantial than Lightweight, classic Midweight manages moisture over a wide range of temperatures. The fabric's brushed interior retains heat, while its smooth jersey exterior makes for hitch-free layering. The fit is contoured without feeling restrictive.
Certainly the best baselayer available, Capilene keeps your skin dry and warm. Soft and comfortable I will wear no other baselayer...ever. Capilene is positively the best from the Joshua Tree to Everest.
I've comfortably worn this over a wider range of temeratures than any other single piece of clothing I own. I bought this as a base layer for backpacking, but ended up climbing in it in cooler weather. It has held up amazingly well through serious abuse including shimmying up rough sandstone slots and arm-jamming in basalt. Well worth the price (on sale for $28).
