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?

These are cheaper:

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.
