    When we are in outdoor sports, for example, hiking ,climbing ,caving ,camping ,we must have a quick dry t-shirt or shirt. Why we need a quick dry t-shirt not a 100% cotton t-shirt or shirt? Some people think that I prefer 100% soft cotton t-shirt which is more comfortable to wear.no other material except pure cotton.

    First I explain why we prefer a quick dry material t-shirt or shirt to a pure cotton t-shirt.as we know that, when we play a sports, we will be sweat,if we wear a pure cotton t-shirt which will absorb the sweat, maybe you think that is good ,that is why I prefer 100% cotton t-shirt .but no, if the cotton t-shirt absorb the sweat, it will make the t-shirt wetting, you will feel uncomfortable if you wear it with one or two hours and more it may be caught a bad cold. By contrary ,if we wear a quick dry t-shirt or shirt which will drain sweat to surface of t-shirt, and then the sweat will volatilize to air ,your t-shirt and your body will be Dry and clean, you feel comfortable , you maybe more enjoy your outdoor sports.

    Maybe you ask why the quick dry t-shirt have the function? Yes, quick dry t-shirt is not an ordinary t-shirt as we bought in clothing shop. Quick dry t-shirt is made of quick dry material. There are some quick dry hiking long sleeve t-shirt to reference .generally there are seven quick dry material.

    Because 100% cotton t-shirt or shirt can't dry as quickly as quick dry shirt.Different materials.

    When you are in outdoor sports,your pores are opening,if the clothes can't dry quickly,moisture will do into your body, it's easy to get a cold.
