Adidas Climalite t shirts.

I bought one of these a few weeks ago and have been really impressed with it. I haven't
worn it biking yet but I wore it today to cut the grass in 90 degree heat with high humidity and
it kept me dry and fairly cool. They were on sale at TJ Max for $12.99 so I went back tonight
and bought 3 more. These fit me fairly snug but not as tight as a bike jersey but I think they
would make a great shirt to cycle in.

How are the pockets in the back to stash your phone, snacks and supplies? :|

I guess they are only good if you want to ride your bike. If I want to eat and talk on the phone I just stay home.

I picked up some Nike running shirts in that high viz a few years back, they have made great shirts for short rides.

I guess if you only ride your bike around the block you don't need your phone or snacks.

Gee, I might ride 70 miles, and still don't use a bike specific jersey with pockets. And on a 30 mile ride, I don't even bother with snacks.

Impressive.

I have some of the Climalite shirts, and a few of the Champion versions. Excellent for walking/hiking, too flappy for cycling. If they were fully form fit, I wouldn't bother with them at all. At that point, just wear a jersey with pockets. It's not about saving money, people. I have several jerseys that cost less than $20.

Bike Forums, the place where bike weight is no big deal, but you must have pockets for snacks.

Back pockets are unnecessary...I wear cargo shorts with lots of pockets and a small camelback backpack which gives me plenty of room to store extras.

If you were ON your phone, you wouldn't need a pocket to stash it in.
