They come with a "Key" logo on the back of the neck, leading me to believe they can be silk screened. But I haven't had any done yet.

How do there long sleeve shirts preform????

We use Carhartt work force short sleeve shirts. They are very light and we stay cooler when wearing them. I'm considering getting long sleeve made up.

Any names of those companies?

Yeah. I mean I'm no johnny come lately. And I'm also not a 40 year old stuck in my ways. 22 years young. I feel like the polyester won't let my skin breathe

I ask cuz I actually purchased one once (perhaps too small, IDK) and it felt like I was wearing a sausage casing. NOT good. Yes, I'm stocky...and I prefer loose fitting clothing as opposed to some kind of spandex-y thang.
hah, ya i got the grub worm look too. This has always amazed me. What is wrong with long sleeves, work pants, boots, and a wide brimmed hat? Get the darn sun off of your skin!

a nice pair of jean shorts and a wife beater will help more.

I wear those long-sleeve Columbia UPF shirts (the ones that look like they're for fly-fishing), tucked into jeans (which have a SPF of about 150!), a belt, a boonie hat, and work boots. You can't be too careful with the sun in my opinion.
