    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.

    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.
