Patagonia Capilene® Cool Trail Shirt

£35 www.patagonia.com

The Capilene® Cool range is designed to keep you cool when working hard in warm conditions. For a cooling t-shirt, the fabric was thicker than I expected, but it worked. In even the sweatiest situations, I didn’t overheat and after being worn for several days, it didn’t smell sweaty. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable allowing you a great range of movement and the scoop neck helped with air movement. It is lusciously soft next your skin, feeling like brushed cotton rather than polyester. The flatlock seams meant there was no chafing, especially when wearing a rucksack. It comes in a range of colours so you can choose one to suit your wardrobe.

► Verdict: So soft, you’ll want to wear it every day.

► Best for: A comfortable option when you’re busy in warmer climates.
