    Has anyone used the cooling shirts that claim to wick away moisture and cool the body?
    I see several brands for sale that claim they are effective.

    Walmart carries a line of shorts/shirts (marketed as golf apparel) with this fabric. The shirts are $15. Dont know if they are the latest tech ... but they ARE much better than a cotton T. I would easily recommend them.

    I haven't found anything that works good in the deep south. The closest is Columba's fishing shirts or the Bass Pro Shops copy.

    UnderArmour ColdBlack is my favorite "cooling" shirt. I have Columbia fishing shirts too, but these serve a different purpose.

    I've tried the Columbia and the Under Armour.. I currently wear and swear by the shirts I buy at Walmart.. Name in the collar is "GEORGE" They are a wicking shirt and they work better then any of the others I have tried. These shirts are $12 and some change. I have paid up to $60 for name brand shirts and non of them have come close to the comfort these shirts give me in the heat.

    For those of you who don't know me.. I vend at shoots, I'm outside in a tent all day.

    I've got a wide assortment of various styles and brands. The one I have found to work best is the Under Armour Charged Cotton T-Shirts. Actually all of the moisture wicking shirts work to an extent. Some are just a little better than others.
