It DUMPED here in the Wasatch yesterday! So, between my 8am mid term and 12:20pm class today, I headed up to Alta to get some pre-season touring in. I cruised up in a pair of shell pants and my Patagonia Capilene 3 Bottoms.
Patagonia Capilene 3 Bottoms are great for those of us who get cold legs when kickin’ it in the outdoors. Even while touring, my lower body is always cold. Top half, I’ll be in a short sleeve shirt, but my bottom half seems to always require a bit more insulation. Patagonia Capilene 3 Bottoms appear to be just the right weight for me, from touring to keeping warm on the downhill as well.
Patagonia Capilene 3 Bottoms
- Mid rise waist fits nicely compared to other bottoms. You’re not dealing with fabric all the way up your rib cage, but there’s enough there to get the job done.
- Gusseted crotch allows for a great range of motion, ideal for that back and fourth touring motion.
- Sizing runs on the larger size. At 5 foot 3 inches and 110 lbs, I needed an extra small to get the waist to fit just right. I’m usually a small in bottoms, not an extra small.
- Great wicking! Moisture is drawn away from your body very efficiently.
