    They are not jerseys but try the web site Tan Through Swimwear and Shirts for men and women direct from Cooltan!. They may have something that would work for you. It's worth at look just for the models.

    Alternate jersey one day, arm warmers the next. That way the tan evens out over time.
    Speed solves all problems, except for those things it makes worse.

    Thank you. This looks like exactly what I was looking for. I would say thread closed but Mr. Smarta leck will not let this happen.

    Why not post this thread in the women's lounge. They have ways of dealing with this stuff, although you may end up with a tandoori tan on your cags.

    Necessity is the mother of invention. It's just hard for me to believe that this hasn't been thought out and pushed to the masses. Nike, Adidas, NB, and a host of other sports companies have R&D departments up the wazoo. It's not like it is uncommon. The "We can put a man on the moon" argument comes to mind. As to the "why" question? Because I ain't the only one who does not like this!

    Thank you for the tan-through tip. If only the big companies would follow suit.

    Is there any difference in tanning rays vs. burning rays?

    Referencing the rays being emitted by the Sun, here. I mean, isn't this kinda like asking, "how can I go swimming but not get wet"?

    Jimmy needs to learn to enjoy the sun. If jimmy got more sun he wouldn't be so upset.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    Maybe get one of the roadie jersey like team sky. There pretty much see thru so they must let sun in.

    Froome models racy new Team Sky kit... and it leaves little to the imagination | Mail Online

    Just what everyone needs....a jersey that allows tan lines to look like you had skin graft surgery......all over your body.

    Because he's looking for someone who can make him laugh, likes the theater, enjoys going out but is also happy with quiet evenings at home.

    So much to worry about when riding;

    Tan lines, panty lines, how to keep your cheese cold, mean people, bears, socks matching frame stickers, helmet hair, junk angle, spandex bulge, body odor, and getting that proper amount of facial stubble for the rugged MTBer look. Sheesh! It's a wonder I ever get out of the house!!
