I am not a big fan of the Walmart, but every now and then I find something like this Hi-vis wicking shirt. I WILL be getting more.

No jersey here except for some charitys I rode in.

Dont ever need the pockets!! and since Im not worried about weight ever I ride with a handlebar bag and panniers or a acorn/carradice style saddlebag to fit the event.

pockets wouldnt work for me anyway, glasses, cell phone, keys wallet...

I have a bunch of 100% polyester High end golf /tennis polos that I buy at discount stores like tj max , Bells ,Marshalls

I just bought 4 shirtrs at marshalls (2) light avacado green (1 )orange and one perrywinkle blue for $9.00 each

these same shirts in the golf or tennis pro shop sells for $35-50 each!! I saw the same shirt at a big chain store yesterday for $39.99.

I try them on and find the ones that fit a little long. if you want a serious wicking fit buy a size smaller.

4 shirts for less than the price of one jersey works for me but thats my style too as I prefer the polo casual look to the jersey , I do wear bike shorts though .

the same discount stores also have at any given time plenty of 100% poly or technical material shirts without collars and with long sleeves as well again all in the 9-14 dollar range cant beat it.

names like Nike , under armor, columbia, and other big names (forget the Xmarts ) hit the discount stores

I bought two pair of under armor insulated tights at marshals last year for 11.00 each dicks had them for $42.00

I think you are confused about whom is acting ignorant, impertinent and presumptuous on this thread.
I agree with ILTB. Rare occassions should be celebrated.

I picked up one of these a few months ago to try it out, I figure it might be good for touring. Only 12 bucks or so.

Huh? That's exactly what I keep in my pockets for quick access. Wallet, cell phone, keys. At least for commuting anyway.

Target has similar products. If I had the $$ I would by the nice wool and all of that. But I am struggling. I can by 10 of these basic quick dry shirts for less than one of the wools.

I've found something better than cheap Wally-World performance T's, soccer jerseys. They are long and brightly colored.

I picked up 2 at Ross for less than $20.
