    Default UV Blocking Breathable Longsleeve Shirts?

    I'm looking to pick up a few UV blocking long sleeve shirts but was looking for some input from beyond if anyone has a favourite light weight, moisture wicking, sun blocking shirt they like? I'm looking for a relaxed fit with decent durability that breathes well. Im targeting something I could work outside in on a hot day and not just end up in a huge puddle of sweat as a result of the shirt. I typically wear a large in T shirts but have a few long sleeves that I size up to an XL.

    Right now I'm looking at the True Werk B1 hoodie which is the next gen to their T.5 hoodie that's got great reviews on social media. That being said I've never seen anyone without an affiliate link mention them or wear them so I'm not totally sure on real world wear or sizing.

    Also considering the North Face Men's Class V Water top but I'd rather not buy anything from them if I can avoid it.

    I've tried underarmour and Nike athletic shirts but even their XXL sizes are far to tight for me. They would be way better as a base layer versus a stand alone shirt. Are there any other ones with a relaxed fit I should consider?

    Unless it's an 80's mesh, cropped football jersey it will block UV.
    I'd stop searching under that gimmicky category and focus more on sweat management.
    With that being said, any shirts that I've worn that claim to be "moisture wicking" get wicked, baked in, eternal onion pits long before they wear out. That smell makes me hate life.

    Look for "fishing shirts" and you'll find a broad selection.

    They evaporate the moisture and retain and concentrate the smelly body oils.

    Still better than cotton. I used to wring the sweat out of my cotton workout gear after a workout.

    Outdoor Research Echo Hoody or Astroman Sun hoody. All i wore in Cook Islands and NZ. Astroman is less prone to pilling.

    I like the Columbia PFT or whatever they are called. $25 at the outlet down south. Would not pay $80 or whatever they are here.

    You ain't getting a sunburn through any shirt. Get something in white to keep you cool

    Bass Pro has a number of these long sleeve fishing shirts, which really is just tech wicking materials.

    Something that is a bit more form fitting would be Rash guards from any surf company - quicksilver, ripcurl etc..

    I've got some Dickies shirts from last year I wouldn't mind replacing myself, Columbia PFG has a consensus of sorts here - any other brands I should consider, or is that the best option for xl shirts?
