I need to get some of that stuff as I always wear cotton, and sometimes it punishes me. Most hikes take place during one of the 300 sunny days we experience here in Arizona, so cotton is just fine...but every once in a while, such as a pre-dawn ascent up the Flatiron with no sun to speak of, cotton turns ugly on me.JamesLyding wrote: Upper: I always wear an REI or UnderArmour shirt as my base layer, and frequenly a long-armed upper layer of whatever brand. It's much better to have shirts that breathe as-opposed-to cotton t-shirts that absorb every drop of sweat.
