Anybody wore 'CoolMax/Wick Dry' clothing (namely T-shirts) whilst out in the searing heat on a typical excursion?
I ask because i find cotton t-shirts very uncomfortable and 'heavy' when it gets saturated with sweat (which doesn't take long for me!) if i'm in the heat with little shade all day. It also takes ages to dry so am looking for alternatives.
I bought one when I got back from Rome last year (North Face make) but haven't had chance to use it yet and am planning to go to Egypt in the summer which is a lot hotter and probably less shade.
I did a day in the ruins in Ostia (nr Rome) which had little shade and swore i'd never were cotton again if i was to go an excursion like this as I was just soaked all day!
I know they say natural fibres is best but are any of these modern synthetice materials from the likes of Columbia/North Faces/Beghaus etc with all their fancy science labels attached any good?
