    SPF shirt/jersey comparison

    Ok took first ride in born3 mt goat jersey, so here is the comparison with solumbra cycling shirt.

    Mt Goat Jersey
    ===========
    SPF 50
    no mesh work under pits or under arms and no venting in back
    standard 3 pocket back
    extra generous sleeve length
    fair colors: not quite bright enough for safety

    Cycling shirt
    =========
    SPF 30
    mesh work under pits, arms, and venting in back
    standard 3 pocket back
    muted yellow and white: again not bright enough for safety


    Evaluation.
    --either top works well for 65 to 85F temps.
    --cycling shirt can be used as an overshirt up to 80F
    --above 90F, mt goat jersey is cooler. It doesn't make sense. Temp was 94 on ride home and felt like low 80's. I think it is because the SPF 50 blocks more of the radiant heat so it doesn't feel as hot.
    -- cycling shirt can be pressed and wrinkles easily
    -- mt goat jersey cannot be ironed but bold patterns cover wrinkles

    -- high temps, mt goat jersey wins. Moderate temps, I'll probably go with the cycling shirt else I would be wearing the same top every day.

    They said on their web site that custom jerseys are a possiblity. I'll check it out and see. I agree solid is better.
