Comments about Patagonia Capilene 2 Bottoms (Men's):
I bought my Capilene 2 bottoms out of fear, fear of spending most of February in South Dakota. Moving in and out of doors, preflighting and refueling a helicopter, I didn't want bottoms that were too thick or bulky. The Capilene 2 and 3 both fit this bill. In temps down to 10 degrees F, The Capilene 2 was the clear winner. It was barely noticeable except that I was warm. But from +10 degrees F down to -20 degrees F, the Capilene 3 bottoms were better at keeping biting winds rolling off the South Dakota plains at bay.
I ended up exchanging my first pair of Capilene 2 bottoms for a size smaller than recommended on the sizing chart. The waist band and fit were too generous.
I found the Capiline 2 very versatile, light weight, easy to care for, and excellent for most of my applications.
- Feels too big
- Feels true to length
