I bought one and compared to my walmart $6 cheapos the UA was a complete joke! Felt like I was wearing a garbage bag!

I've also contemplated going to long sleeve button up shirts, and long pants always. I know it's supposed to be cooler if you are covered up but I've never found that to be true. I'm 32 now though and I've got to start keeping the sun off of my skin more... Sun screen just doesn't work as I can't ever get into a routine of putting it on every day, sometimes 2x a day.

For shoes I've been wearing Vasque hikers. I also have a pair of redwing steel toe boots. I wear a 15 though and the steel toe boots look more like clown shoes and are pretty hard to get around in! Not a big fan but I paid a freaking fortune for them! Next time I'm going with the murells. The Vasque ones just aren't holding up like they should.


Jason,

The Performance Fishing Gear fishing shirts work good. Long sleeve, button up, it breathes and lets the wind through. It looks good and professional too.

I wear crocs to walk around in. If I am actually working, I am in chemical resistant boots. No point in putting on fancy shoes if I am only going to be taking them off. Those chemical resistant boots are also never worn into the cab of my truck either.

Try that in the south, where everyone around here wears sandals and crocs, and you'll have a crowd of about 100 making it a point that you don't get up off the ground.

Back to the topic on hand, jeans in the winter and fall and shorts in the 100+ days with 80-100% humidity.

I could outrun them with in my leather boots while they're slipping and falling out their crocs.

They make some pretty good boat shoes for cannoning and such, but I wear hiking boots and long, lightweight, pants for mowing/working.
