View Full Version : What kind of shirt is extra-cool/ventilated ?

On hot summer days where the sun just bakes i found that polyester adidas climacool shirts are just as useless as regular cotton Tee's as the sweat just overwhelms it and after 20 minutes... i was carrying about 5lbs of absorbed water on my chest..

So my solution right now is to really practice with sunscreen topless...
(Show off the muscle a bit:oops:)

but I cant see this as a permanent solution as skin cancer is a main concern and I'd really love to avoid/prevent getting cancer ...

Any shirts thats even better than climacool? I know that pros use the same shirts but I dont know how they are adapting to it

Nike Dri Fit works good. Some of their shirts have UV protection.

I sometimes wear Hanes. Its hot livin in AZ.:oops:

Look for the stuff that actually has ventilation, not just climacool. I have a few nike shirts that have the entire back ventilated and they are amazing in hot, humid weather.

Just so you know, shirts alone don't prevent cancer.
