    There were a few of my Florida brethren on here this summer talking about a kind of shirt that drew the sweat away from the body and kept them dry despite the humidity. With the colder weather coming and snow work right around the corner, I'm interested in finding some of these shirts. Anyone know what these are called, where I can find them? Being drenched with sweat while working in 20 degree temps isn't the most ideal conditions for good health.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have heard of some athletes wearing some called
    under armor
    I think, for this exact purpose.
    Maybe look it up and find something about them.
    I think they may be a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.
    Hope this helps.

    The big company that makes them is bodyarmor. But if you go to any out door store(EMS,Dicks,Sports Aurth and so on) that has hiking equipment. They will have the same stuff. If you go to a hunting store i believe they now have this for very cold usage. I wear the same in the winter as summer. It works for me.

    It sounds like a shirt I have that's made out of "CoolMax". You can usually find them at an outdoor equipment store like fastpitcher mentioned above.
