    Anyone try Gorgonz workshirts?

    I saw these at the store. They are supposed to be good for hot weather - dry quickly and be cooler overall. Since I sweat like a pig I'm interested in trying them out. Anyone ever used them?

    I had never heard of them, but I did some poking around and see that they put out a hi-vis shirt as well.

    Worth trying for $19.99

    I actually have one of these t-shirts and I do cycle in it at times. It does pretty much what it says. It is cool and feels light and comfortable. It also dries quickly when wet. I do not know when and where I got it , but it is a decent shirt. Good to ride in on those hot days. It's not all that stylish since it's only a gray t-shirt. Some of the "team jersey guys" may not approve of it. I would think that 20 bucks is a little steep though. I must have got mine before these shirts started catching on and was cheaper, I wish I had purchased more.

    Do you remember when you got it, as in, how many times has it been washed? Shrinkage?

    This is my 3rd summer commuting with them. They work just as well as the more expensive brands(Under Armor,CoolMax) and are still in great shape after many washings.

    I just ordered some generic long sleeved performance t shirts from Cabelas. $10 each. I want something cool and I like long sleeves, even in hot weather, for sun protection. As long as I keep moving I can stay cool.

    I have had it 2-3 years and it has not shrunk or faded. but I admit that I have not worn it that much until this summer when I got my bike. My wife got it at some mall in Virginia. She does not remeber which.

    Well, Virginia's a bit far away for me, but that's pretty good if you've had it for two or three years and not had any fading or shrinking.
