Bringing the best of R1 and Cap 4 to create a super performance-based under layer for the serious athlete
Designed specifically for snow sports, the Capilene® 4 Pro Zip-Neck combines tried-and-true R1® fleece for core warmth and Capilene® 4 fabric panels for breathability.
Instant warmth for the steeps and backcountry. Designed specifically for snow sports, the new Capilene® 4 Pro Zip-Neck is our warmest and most breathable baselayer top. Combining two exceptional technical fabrics to create hybrid warmth zones, its core and sides are made of Capilene 4 (3.8-oz Polartec® Power Dry® High Efficiency™ fabric) for superior warmth, breathability and moisture management, while its chest and shoulders use R1® fleece panels (6.8-oz Polartec Power Dry fabric) for additional warmth. Soft, stretchy and compressible, this piece features hidden elastic thumb loops, a smooth face that glides beneath layers, a brushed-fleece interior that’s soft next to skin and Polygiene® permanent odor control. Other details include a tall collar with an anatomical shape for maximum coverage and warmth, a tuckable length and a long center-front zipper backed by kissing welts for skin comfort. Fabrics are bluesign® approved.
Capilene® Polyester Baselayer
Made from moisture-wicking polyester, Capilene® synthetic baselayers wick moisture away from your skin, breathe efficiently and dry fast to provide the foundation for any layering system for any pursuit. Designed for fast-forward, aerobic activities, they’re quick to wick and quick to dry. Capilene polyester is made from recycled polyester (35% recycled content or more) and is also machine washable.
We make four Capilene fabrics for different levels of exertion and temperatures. All Capilene fabrics have achieved bluesign® approval; have an updated and consistent fit in each fabric weight; and use Polygiene® technology to control odor in the garment. They are the best baselayer option for high-sweat activities and wet conditions.
Polygiene® odor control permanently protects your garments from smelling like a middle school locker room. Sweat itself is odorless, but it creates the conditions that bacteria need to multiply, and some of those bacteria produce odors. Polygiene permanent odor control stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, so you can wear more and wash less.
Active only on the fabric surface, Polygiene permanent odor control does not interfere with perspiration or with the skin’s natural bacterial flora. Polygiene particles are more than 100 times larger than nanoparticles and therefore are too large to penetrate to the skin’s barrier. Polygiene-treated fabrics have received Medical Class 1 approval in Europe, the same class that includes bandages.
