    Base Layer Shirts

    Any recommendations for reasonably priced quality base layers?

    Thanks

    For my money, I like the Champion stuff at target. Sure its super cheap, but it works and you can buy a dozen for what an Assos piece would cost you. Other than that, I'd say ProBikeKit has deals on Craft stuff fairly often.

    Oneil or the many other surfer type rash guards. Under Armour didn't last me very long before the finish started flaking off in under a year. The material reminded me of when one get's a sunburn and the skin starts flaking/peeling off.

    I have some UA gear that has lasted for years. I never put mine in the dryer. Do you?

    I've had good luck with the Sport Works stuff at Wally World. I wear the skin tight long sleeve shirts all year long. Even in hot weather they're nice and cool. Plus I get extra sun protection.

    I like Nike Dri Fit shirts. Mine all come from Ross, TJ Maxx, etc... for no more than $12. They don't always have them but when they do, I stock up.

    Nope. This was the Heat Gear with UPF 45 rating. Cool water gentle cycle, hang dry. I thought it was because I may be overstretchig the fabric so I got a large size also...did similar just before the one year mark. If this is the UPF coating flaking off, thumb down.

    The O Neill has 2+ years on it.
