    I bought this hoping for a good alternative to wide brim hats and sunscreen. I'm 6'1, 170 lbs, and this fits perrrrfectly. Loose in the torso without being baggy, just the right amount of elastic in the cuffs and waist, and sleeves that are long enough. I don't buy into the whole "industrial athlete" marketing crap, but I'm willing to overlook that dumbness for exceptionally well fitting work clothing. And the sun protection for my head and neck is awesome. I hate being in the sun, so I find myself putting the hood up anytime the sun would otherwise be beating down on my head and neck. I'm sure it looks odd to see someone with a hood on in 100 degree weather, but I don't care, the concept is genius, and I feel cooler with the hood up than with the sun blasting my skin. Getting ready to order a second because I've been wearing this one shirt every day since I got it. This brand has me rethinking everything I thought I knew about work clothing, and now I'm questioning my loyalty to Carhartt. Definitely going to try the Truewerk work pants next. Questions for the Truewerk the marketing dept: has any market test really shown that purposely misspelled names translates into more sales? Does the whole "industrial athlete" thing really appeal to tradesmen? Because if you can't quantify that it does increase sales then you should drop it. And I'm adding this opinion because I nearly didn't buy your products because, for me, this type of marketing makes it look like you're trying too hard, and sometimes companies that try too hard in marketing do so because their products are meh.

    I usually (for years) wear long-sleeves when working in the sun. Some people often neglect the heat-load of the sun on bare skin. Also, there's the UV protection without having to 'grease-up'. And, don't forget, sleeves offer a bit of physical protection with abrasive work.
    From what I've read:
    Some modern fabrics don't actually absorb moisture (sweat) into the fibers, unlike cotton. Fabrics like polyester and similar materials effectively increase the evaporative surface area to provide some cooling benefit, also unlike cotton. Moving warm perspiration away from the skin and to the outer, higher surface area of the garment is what makes the garment 'feel' cooler. Any thin, loose fitting garment will help with staying a little bit cooler. And, the wicking action of an appropriate fabric can further enhance the cooling effect. When the fabric textile is milled with a fine texture, it becomes comfortable on the skin, which IS like cotton.
