    I love polyester shirts

    Yup. I used to simply ride/wear cotton or regular t shirts, but since I bought a North Face polyester Ts with their vapor-rub fabric, it's like a whole new level of comfort. It's light and fresh. Keep the sweat out and breeze in.

    I really love the fact the fabric is not prone to sticking on the skin when humid and it's so light so don't notice it when carrying a back-pack or under a jacket. I feel so much better with this then cotton, I think I'm gonna swap all my T's for polyester ones. I could wear that everyday. Plus they look real nice and fit good.

    Only downside is the price... Awwww... money again...

    Switching to non-cotton shirts is like day and night comparing to cotton ones.

    If you have Macy's around, I'd recommend going there and checking their clearance section.
    Last time I got 4 adidas tech shirts for about $8 each, and they are awesome.

    The cheap ones usually won't have any anti-stink technology. Still a good deal, but when you find yourself sweating on the trail and wonder who let the dogs out, it's time to de-stink it. Regular washing won't do the trick. I use sink the stink you can find it at any scuba shop.

    I usually wear the C9 stuff from Target which is pretty good and very breathable. Just picked up a (thin) fleece-lined polyester shell for $20 that will compress into my Camelback Rogue. Bonus.

    I find that white vinegar works pretty well at removing 'premastink' from my jerseys.

    I just picked up a nice ibex wool jersey at their annual tent sale. It is really nice, but I would never pay full price for one. I do think I"ll try to pick up more wool stuff as sales pop up at sierra trading post or at the tent sale next year.

    ya, sears carries the Nordic Trac brand. they go on sale for like 8 bucks all the time. there are a few different weaves and weights that they use and make for great options.. super tine light with a looser weave to an almost heavy tighter weave that's great for the cooler days... Like them better than my X gear stuff which was 10X the price
    Going to try and bring Trail Tire TV back. go take a look... http://trailtiretv.blogspot.com/

    If you guys have a TJ max or even BJs carry name brands at a discount.

    Champion C9's from Target are better than the Wally World ones, and nearly as cheap.

    Layer 8 performance tee's can be had from TJ Maxx super cheap, great product every bit as nice as NF or Under Armor.

    I'm all about equal quality, less price. I find gently used ones a lot at Goodwill, figure I'm gonna trash 'em anyway $2 sure beats $30.
