    You're a dork if you wear both at the same time, I don't care how hot it is.

    No dork factor if you do it in the Pacific Northwest.

    yet another Vote for Alertshirt.com

    I have 4 t-shirts from them... they are great (moisture wick).

    The yellow and orange are BRIGHT! The red shirt is not bright at all.

    Another vote for alert shirt. I ordered 2 short sleeve shirts (lime and orange) that I received this week and I'm really pleased by how bright they are and how well they wick. I'm planning on ordering some sleeveless and long sleeve ones, but I'm waiting to wash the ones I have first to see if they shrink after washing them so I can see if I should order the same size or one size up.

    Okay, I got the Royal Robbins shirt Saturday, and checked it out today. Darned if it doesn't work. The real test is those juicy moments after you get off the bike, and it kept on working. They really, really could have used buttons on the pockets instead of that infernal velcro stuff.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    I prefer looser-fit jerseys in the heat because the air flow refreshes me. For the same reason, I prefer jerseys over t-shirts because the zipper allows me to regulate the air flow. Although I sometimes wear sleeveless jerseys, for the same reasons as above, I'd avoid going shirtless entirely because of the increased risk of sunburn and cancerous skin growths.

    On hot commutes (over 85 degrees agound here) I throw on a cheesy orange coarse mesh safety vest I got for free. Tacky but better than leaving work bare-chested.

    I just got two shirts and a pair of shorts from walmart yesterday, must be a new brand I have never heard before. It was in the sports section of the cloths, they are designed to wick away all the moisture and fit tight (I think underarmor is like this?) anyways reminds me of the 1 jersy I have feels like the same material just abit tighter of a fit (I may have gotten one size too smal) but for 6$ for this shirt vs the 60$ for a jersy its a no brainer.

    The shorts are the same brand, and reversable a bright orange on one side (great visibility) and black on the other if I so feel the need for matching cloths or weaing them around the house.

    I can get some pics and more info up later im at work now, I will definitly be getting more of these and save my money isntead of getting the bike specific stuff like jersys and padded shorts. I would use those only for epic rides and because of the pockets in the jersy.

    Another vote on the Alertshirts, for wicking. I just wish the collar would stretch out some.

    I just picked up a knockoff of those Columbia fishing shirts (complete with back vent). Going to try it out this weekend. I just realized that if I wear the shirt with the right shorts, I might get mistaken for working at the park or at a zoo.

    I don't live in that part of the country, but I've ridden my motorcycle all through the Southwest. What worked best for me, even on 100+ degree days, was a long-sleeved white cotton t-shirt. At every gas station or convenience store, stop, take it off, soak it, and put it back on. The evaporation will keep you quite cool. At least for a while.
