Does anyone have a lead on something like the Swrve modal long sleeves? Either in tee or polo form would be good. Something plain, not fitted, summerweight and not cotton. I don't like riding around with skin on show when the sun is out.
Even better if you can think of something that might circulate in the second hand markets.
I see that morvelo overland do a plain ish tech tee but there's no info at all on fabric composition.
Long sleeve merino would work very nicely.
Sharing this link is not an endorsment but looks kind of interesting and on sale, Black Sheep adventure long sleeve..
Personally have some swrve modal and icebreaker tees. Spendy but a long sleeve icebreaker fits the description, might find some second hand
Also dhb worth a look.
I have one of those blacksheep adventure merino tees and it was really nice at the beginning but hasn't lasted well at all. Looks nice though
I'd like to see more merino shirts, with a collar etc to protect neck.
Anyone know of a good one? Howies used to make one, but mines falling apart now sadly after many years and miles.
Appreciate all the recommendations. Kind of always assume merino will be too hefty but I guess it's not the case these days especially with summer weight. Will report back
Supernatural on sports pursuit have some, also icebreaker. Depends a little on if you want a jersey or weave though. Can also get polos
Vulpine make a nice long sleeve polo
Any recommendations for cycling t shirts with single rear pocket?
I've got a couple of these, which I rate https://www.sportpursuit.com/catalog/product/view/id/1980526
Some heavily discounted PNS stuff on END at the moment.
My favourite cap is my "POC Resistance Pro XC Cap" Which is like 90% polyester and very lightweight.
Obviously they don't seem to make them anymore, sold out, etc, blah, anyone know of anything similar?
Doesn't look like your typical cycling cap shape. What about the Patagonia duckbill cap?
Castelli AC or Le Col Pro Air
I think Castelli made a super lightweight mesh cap in the past, maybe CDC as well? Oh I think MAAP have a mesh one
Chapeau make some caps made out of a lightweight mesh too. Some particularly budget friendly options in the outlet. Had one for a few years and find it useful for keeping sweat out of my eyes in summer.
I have a cap from Patagonia which is similar if not identical, and it's not suitable for cycling. The bill of the cap is not rigid, which makes it easily pocketable, but also means it flaps down in front of your eyes on windy sections or descents.
Good suggestions all, thank you.
Galibier have a mesh cap at the minute. Good price too
Cadence made mesh caps pretty much all mesh except for the peak and the front panel
Not particularly stylish
