ISO: long sleeve UPF shirts to ride in

We can't seem to find these anywhere. Ok, overstating it a little. Let's say we've found very few. We found some on Patagonia's website, but the Under Armor website doesn't seem to turn up much, nor does amazon. We looked in store at Academy Sports and Target and come up empty.

Where do y'all find non-jersey riding shirts with UPF protection? Looking for ones that are not super fitted/compression with UPF 50 or more.

Try this for cycling jerseys: 11-Gear Ginger (Go a size UP if you want more relaxed fit)

For casual shirt look at the Columbia Omnishade Silver Ridge collection. I get them online or in limited color choices from a nearby Cabella's store location. REI has them too.

Both choices are knit material, very cool, breezy, and sun "proof". I have two of each and find myself going to them on any hot day. I wear them exclusively all summer. Did a 14 hour ride from sunup to sundown last month on a blistering hot day with the 11-gear and not even a red glow to any skin.

I hope you like PLAID!
