    Riding Shirt recommendations!

    Looking for some new riding shirts. I don't want anything with logos or front zippers.
    It obviously needs to be a performance fabric that wicks and breathes etc. I am also looking for a shirt that is a little longer than a usual shirt cause the jumping and moving tends to cause regular length shirts to ride up. Also, leave out the mesh knit shirts. They snag on everything velcro.

    I use the cheap coolmax shirts from costco, when I'm not wearing a proper freeride jersey.

    I use Nike Cool Gear, and Underarmour t-shirts... Both breath really well, and fit like a normal T.

    The cheap synthetic t-shirts from MEC. I used to wear cycling jerseys [3-pocket], but the Camelback made that less cool.

    just curious...why the aversion to zippers?
    there are plenty of fairly low-key and nondescript jerseys to be had with the added benefit of being able to 'vent'.
    the zippers are barely noticeable if you want that 't-shirt look'
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    I got a deal on some Fox Racing Attack SS jerseys and was happy with them all last summer.

    The Fox base jersey is a nice, simple and clean jersey with only a small foxhead logo, personally I prefer the other Fox jerseys with the sunglass wipe. If you want basic, inexpensive, but performs and looks good, then take a look at Zoic....

    Yeah, OR mob out in a cut off t-shirt. That way the ladies can see your guns when you're steezing hard.

    check out those oakley shirts, REALLY good prices, and I love the ones I have. I have the ones with the 1/4 zipper, which is great to help keep cool, they were $27

    I like the Fox Attack jerseys due to the fact that they are super lightweight and very cool in the hot summers down here. They also have a sunglasses wipe which is handy. These do have a small logo though, so that may not be your style.

    For almost entirely logo-free, hot weather shirts check out Mountain Hardware. They make a few different tshirts out of very lightweight wicking material that dries really fast for cheap.

    Same here, although I prefer the Rbk shirts because of the way they fit. You can usually pick these up for about $15-$20 at most sporting goods stores.

    REI Sahara Tech Tee

    Recently I came across these

    http://www.rei.com/product/732432

    breathe well, soft (not tech-y feeling like some materials) and has done well for me as a basic top when riding. Worth a look...
