Not to rub it in anyone's face who is still dealing with snow...but here in florida it's been up in the low 80's during the day so I'm starting to have to think about what to wear to ride in when it's hot. Currently I ride in 'riding tights' and a tank top when it's hot. My instructor/barn owner is very 'traditional' in that she always wears tan breeches and usually some sort of professional looking shirt. I asked her today, since it was 80 and she was wearing a long sleeve shirt, if the shirt helped keep her cool. She said not really but at least it keeps the sun of you. It was one of those shirts they make for, like, fishermen and maybe golfers...it has vents and such in it and it's also supposed to be UVA resistant and all that. I've been thinking about getting one of those. I don't think long sleeve, but maybe in short sleeve. So, I was just wondering if anyone found anything that was comfortable to wear in warm weather, 'professional looking' and maybe helps keep you cool?
This is what my instructor was wearing today except the long sleeve version...this is the one I'm thinking about getting for myself Columbia Women's Eddyline Short Sleeve Shirt - FREE SHIPPING at Altrec.com
