Gear Advice: Shirt (Short Sleeve, Wicking )
I tend to like short sleeve shirts, even in winter (I'm odd that way), but when on the trail, there are a few things to consider. Avoid cotton, and stay with a wicking fabric so they will help to keep you dry when active, and will dry out quickly after washing. Loose fitting shirts are better when hiking.
I run a variety of generic wicking tee shirts, but tend to favor the ones we had printed for a Philmont trek.
