    Here it is stuffed into a plastic bag. This is a size large. The squares are 1 inch.

    I recently added the cap 4 bottoms to my collection to replace my fleece pants. I find them equally as impressive. They come in at about 5 ounces for the medium size.

    "I went to Patagonia store near me and tried both mens and womens, and for me the mens fit better. I hope men feel as free to buy women's models as women feel to buy men's — it's not always the case that the label matches the body :)"

    I'm a guy, 6'2", all legs, and I cycle a lot. the Women's L Under Armour tights, and the Women's L GoLite Paclite rain pants fit my thunder thighs better than any men's sizes, and still conform to my 32 waist. Best fit ever! I use measurements, not gender keywords, when I shop online.

    Cheers!

    On a recent backpack where the daytime temps remained in the 30's, I was perfectly comfortable hiking with a Byrnje merino wool fishnet t-shirt base, a Cap4 hoody and a Houdini windjacket. At camp I added a Rab Meco 160 longsleeve zip t and a WM Flash vest. I was extremely impressed with the layering test, especially combining the fishnet base and the Cap4 Hoody. I was comfortable and never felt overheated or sweaty.

    I was looking at the bottoms, but couldn't tell if it was the same fleece used in the hoody- I know take it it is?

    thanks

    I'm thinking more along the lines of just pants for summer- I wear shorts, but bring a pair of Cap 3 bottoms for camp or if it happens to get really cold- the new Cap 4 bottoms might be better suited yet and lighter

    <– no pjs for this guy :)

    I'm assuming they do-makes pi$$ing a little easier, the Cap 3's that I pack do- just have to be mindful that my junk doesn't fall out :)

    @ Mike M, the Cap 4 bottoms are the same material as the hoody.

    And yes, they've got a fly.

    And they fit just like typical long john tights.

    now I just have to insure I get the right ones, as alluded to above the old style Cap 4's are still being sold by many vendors

    if you act fast, you can probably pick up the new ones direct from Patagonia.com for 30% off right now. Use the promo code "DEEPSNOW" Should be good through Tues.

    The Patagonia Capilene 4 1/4-Zip Hoody, style 43665, has vanished from Patagonia's web site.

    "Sorry, we could not find this product on Patagonia.com. It's possible that we recently sold out of the item or that we no longer carry it."

    The non-hoody version is still there, style 43655.

    I love my Cap 4 hoody, glad I got one for Xmas before they vanished.

    Patagonia treats the Cap 4 Hoody is a seasonal item. They product a run and sell in Fall & Winter… with a few that might linger into spring. Expect to see it back Sep or so. My understanding is that it sold very well last year.

    Heads up to those who can't wait for the Cap4 Hoody: it is back in stock for the Fall '13 season at $120 at Patagonia.com. Right now you have to call or Live Chat a salesperson to get it since it is not on the website yet. Black, purple and Forge Grey are this year's colors. Quantities might be limited in some sizes while they get the shipments in. Ordered one for myself today!

    Anyone who can wear women's size L or XL in the Cap4 hoodie check out 6pm.com,
    they have 3 colors from $60 to $77. There are also some Cap4 non-hoodie zip neck.
    Just make sure you're looking at the newer gridded style (9% spandex) from last year and not the older non-gridded style (6% spandex).

    My Women's 1/4 Zip Cap4 Hoodie from about 6 years ago had a loose relaxed fit hood. I was able to modify it for a better air tight fit, but it still is not the balaclava type fit of my R1 Hoodie or the hood that I have seen on the newer men's Cap4 Hoodie.
    The Women's Cap4 Hoody on sale at 6pm.com seems to have the looser fitting hood. If you look at the picture with the hood up from the back, it looks floppy.

    YUP!

    Huge fan of Patagonia here, but a lot of their fabrics are no longer proprietary. MEC makes several of the same products using an identical fabric [Polartec Power Dry] for 50% of the cost while being made in Canada and not some country where people make $0.10 a day. Fit is very good or virtually the same. This is one of those occasions where you're paying for the name.

    "The sizing is very strange on the MEC, not to mention the fabric is not that nice against the skin. I tried to like it but went with the Patagucci. Much nicer for me."

    The fabric is IDENTICAL – Polartec Power Dry. Not in all instances, but certainly in this one.

    Sizing/fit can be different, so that I can understand. Fabric is exact same.

    Hey, sorry to resurrect a super old thread, but Dave, I was wondering if you ever got around to cutting out the second layer in the hood of the cap 4, and if so, if it's worth doing it or better just to keep it as is. Thanks!

    Not worth doing, thing works well as is.

    I actually bought a LS crew and sold the hoodie. Fantastic sub 40F baselayer, and I liked the low profile neck better. I am considering buying the one piece for this winter.

    Thanks David. I just ordered a Cap 4 Hoody and Marmot Thermo Hoody to see which one I like better. Planning on using it as a cold weather mid/outer over a thin wool base. My Mec Vega works nicely like this, but is a touch too warm at times.

    Btw am I the only one who finds it uncomfortable next to skin because of a cold spot in the lower back ? Same experience with Cap 3.

    Is it because the fabric creates a bridge over the lumbar area and the fabric doesn't make contact with your skin? Because that happens with me sometimes, but it never bothers me or gives me a cold feeling.

    I also noticed Patagonia has a new "Pro" version of the Cap 4 zip-neck that blends some of the R1 material.
