This sun shirt (UPF 50) is too hot to wear in the sun and it does not breathe

Verified Buyer Reviewed by John High Sierra from Davis, CA on Saturday, May 17, 2014
I ordered several Columbia Silver Ridge shirts to wear this summer in hot sunny Davis, CA. I already own six pair of Columbia Silver Ridge pants and I wear the pants every day because they are so comfortable and because they have so many large pockets. The Silver Ridge shirts, however, are too hot to wear in warm weather and they do not breathe (they are made from nylon fabric). When I received the Silver Ridge shirts I put one of them on during a mild 68 degree afternoon in Davis, CA. Within minutes I was perspiring heavily due to heat build up within the shirt and I felt compelled to take the shirt off to keep from overheating. I love the Silver Ridge pants and I wear them every day. The Silver Ridge shirts are too hot for me. If you are looking for some UPF rated shirts that are high quality and that are comfortable in hot sunny weather try some Coolibar shirts. I have several Coolibar shirts and they are very high quality very comfortable shirts.
