Medical professionals will always recommend wearing a sun hat , UV clothing, taking frequent shade breaks, using a UV umbrella for portable shade and drinking plenty of hydrating fluids. Recommendations are for sleeves that are loose enough for some air flow. As for the color debate, it appears dark is not an issue as far as staying cool in the deserts. Nor, would we suppose, it be an issue around the pool or on the boat either.
The heat and the hazard: Thank you, I constantly tell my freinds that wearing my coolibar tops is actually much cooler than being exposed and just using sunscreen. Sunsafe clothing is the first layer of protection in our house and should be for all; I am a melanoma patient but my husband and son now wear coolibar sunblock hoodies when we are out in the sun Disneyworld , parades etc , swimshirts when beachside etc.
The coolibat shirts are actually whisper light and cool and much more conf than being exposed. My original melanoma was on my back, then I got a secondary one on my left arm, from years of driving with that side exposed through the window glass. Now I wear Coolibar shirts or a jacket over a regualr shirt every day. While I most always opt for protective clothing, just this past weekend I wanted to take a walk in the sunny, warm weather with a tank. Within minutes, I was succumbing to the heat on my skin, and pulled on my long sleeved zip up jacket.
And because I basically lived outdoors growing up, I now am paying with multiple visits to my friendly dermatologist to have skin problems taken care of. My experience, too, is that covered skin stays cooler than exposed skin.

Previous 1 2 Next. Suggestions for lightweight long-sleeved summer shirts May. So I was wondering if anyone knew of some good lightweight shirts that are cool enough to wear in the summer heat? I know I typically settle for the hundreds of hay scratches on my arms and legs from wearing shorts and a tank top rather than wear long sleeves when its 80 or 90 out.
I do have a history of melanoma in my family and even though I'm pretty diligent about sunscreen, wearing long sleeves when I'm riding and gardening would be a good idea. Also, please suggest shirts for men too, not just women. I was helping my dad plant his garden this weekend. It was in the 80s and he had a sweatshirt on. Obviously he was sweating a lot and I think some nice lightweight shirts would be a good Father's Day gift.
I live in these shirts in the warm months: I'm sure if you dig through Columbia's website you will find a long sleeve version. The best thing about these shirts is when you get wet hosing down a horse, as your shirt dries it doesn't get "wet horse" smelly.
The Colombia sun shirts are really good-http: They hold up well too. ETA the bargain basement at Cabelas often has them for much reduced prices I live in shirts similar to the Columbia, but from Sun Precautions. Bealles Outlets have a different brand than Columbia, less money and are just as nice. I wear them year round and love that they dry so quickly, but offer great sun protection. If it's in your budget, going with the specialty UV protection styles given is your best bet. If you get something which is long sleeved but not UV protecting, still use sunscreen - the material just gives you added protection, but isn't necessarily enough on its own!
I love my long sleeved Old Navy tops with stretch jersey material on the sides - they are nice enough to wear to work, but are light enough to wear around the horses. There was a thread about them at one point - the parent company had two much more expensive lines with the same shirts, one of which was a horsey line. Right now I see other lightweight shirts but not those specifically, but I tend to fit well in their tops compared to other brands.
A neighbor of mine has a upf 50 long sleeved shirt with an ice collar to help keep you even cooler specifically designed for riding. Will get you the ordering info. I always buy a size larger than I need - the 'tent factor' makes a big difference, too! PS - I live in Houston, the land of the totally unreasonable summer!
I don't like the new styling of the Columbia sun shirts, they changed the front pockets into tiny useless things. You can often find things there for very little. I buy used mens dress shirts, lite cotton or silk.
I wear a tank top under and then knot the shirt at my waste. I find they work just fine. But then I use tons of sunscreen. My life motto now is "You can't fix stupid! Libby There is a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness". I also used to wear my husband's lightweight wrangler western shirts-any time I had the chance I would just soak it in cold water creek crossings and wring it out then wear it until it was dry again. They're a very lightweight cotton and were very cool-worked great until they invented the SPF clothing Ooooh, I had no idea such things existed!
I'm having a terrible time with eczema on my forearms and it seems to get really angry after sun exposure, I'm going to have to give these a go. Mosey, learning about cooking with tequila and sun protection shirts!
Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering There is a crack in everything That's how the light gets in. I just bought a nice Nike Dri-Fit summer long sleeved shirt in a technical fabric. For a short sleeve shirt, this is one of the most comfortable I've run across. The material is very soft and under-sleeve mesh vents cause fresh air to flow into the shirt whenever the arms are moved: I even wear mine to church.
We're a small country church. Of course, there's always Tractor Supply. The inherent vice of Capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
Might be available at Farm stores and I did see them at the Meijer's stores last year on sale. So cheap that I bought a TON of them, enough for years!
They are like regular mens shirts, long tails, collars, long sleeves, no stretch. Opaque fabric, so no sunburn thru them. They do wear well, last for a long time. Best choice for "farmer's tan" if you like that look! I use Bullfrog Gel Sunscreen, which doesn't make my face break out. All the cream ones give me problems, even the best brands. I just got some of the "newest" Bullfrog gel, which is SPF 50, and did a great job with the sun on Saturday and Sunday here.
