Does anyone have any regular clothes made out of cool max? Like sports
shirts or even casual shirts? I got coolmax soxs and some cycling jerseys. I
been looking for cool looking shirts that you can wear in public that don't
look like cycling jerseys with pockets in the back. Long or short sleeve.
Maybe I could just buy some bulk coolmax and take it to the tailor.



Anybody find anything like that online?



Thanks,



Bruce

Havn't found online, had no need to, Wally world sells pull over shirts and
shorts (Starter brand) priced $11.50-15.00. Store also sells coolmax socks.

I don't know where you are, but if you have an REI around, I believe there
is a lot of Coolmax stuff you are looking for. Also, Nike's Dri-Fit is very
good and there are polo type shirts available, especially in Collegiate
gear.

My "stealth" cycling outfit is a pair of Haggar slacks 60% polyester 40% rayon,
and a decent looking golf shirt 100% microfibre polyester. Light wool dress
socks and nice stiff black leather dress shoes stuffed into Mt.Zefal toe cups
for a cool ride and ready for the office. Cool and comfortable.

A lot of places sell Coolmax Alta t-shirts, www.sierratradingpost.com often
has them for $10 or so. I got a Coolmax polo style shirt at Eastern Mountain
Sports, I don't know what their (inter)national coverage is, this was a few
years ago, perhaps other camping suppliers.

Camping supply and travel stores sell street clothes made from Coolmax and
other synthetics. They are comfortable in a wide range of conditions and

you
can hand wash/drip dry them when travelling or camping.


Post some web addresses for any online stores you know of.

The shirts I have for hiking, running, and cycling are not specifically
"Coolmax," but they are light-weight, polyester sweat-wicking fabrics. I
have an REI MTS T-shirt and a running shirt that's almost a mesh, and
shirt from North Face that's more solid. I really really really like the
almost-mesh shirts, much better even than my Coolmax jerseys.

The running shirt and North Face "hiking" shirt came from Garts, a big
box discount sporting goods store. The REI shirt came from a brick-and-
mortar REI store and it's currently what I wear just about everyday for
cycling (it washes and dries quickly).

I couldn't find my specific shirt but its very similar to this one,
except mine has a zipper on the collar to open up the front a little.

It's not Fab-approved (the REI logo is extremely inconspicuous), but it
works very well for me. My shirt is "Mango" orange for visibility.

For more formal or stylish shirts, you can also try suppliers of tennis
clothes, like www.tenniswarehouse.com or holabirdsports.com; most of the
major manufacturers have a wicking synthetic. I like adidas' climalite.
