Great shirt for intense workouts!

These shirts are wonderful for short, intense workouts like trail running, hiking the Manitou Incline, or mountain biking. They are comfortable and flow quite a bit of air. I like my shirts baggy, so I ordered my normal size. I have a bunch of these shirts.

For all-day endurance comfort in activities like hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, canyoneering, etc, you may also want to check out the Terramar CoolMax T-shirt made from 100% polyester with a soft cotton like feel (STP item # 7606T). They don't flow as much air as the above shirt, but are wonderful for all day adventures. I think I own about 10 of these shirts.

If you are looking for an all around, every day t-shirt, I also like the 15% cotton/85% polyester Terramar Dri-Release t-shirt (STP item # 2691K). The small percentage of cotton adds a bit to comfort, while the polyester still provides good wicking capability for hot summer days (but not quite as much as the CoolMax shirts). I now own 14 of these t-shirts for every day usage.

I've had good luck with the Terramar brand of shirts. They seem to hold up well over the years. I wash them in cold water and try to avoid using a clothes dryer on any synthetic clothes. Instead, I let them air dry on a drying rack which seems to work well.
