Super comfortable, and of great quality! Have yet to be disappointed with any Louisiana Sportsman clothing.
I bought my husband one of these cool breeze shirts this past summer to protect him from sunburns. He love the shirt so much that we ordered several more over the summer. He now has one in every color! They really are nice and cool and do provide great protection from sunburn. I would highly recommend them.
My husband and I spent the day on the water and didn't think about putting on sunscreen and I got extremely sun burnt. I had one of these cool breeze shirts in my bag and decided to put it on for the ride home. I could not believe it, but when I put this shirt on I could actually feel my skin cool down instantly. This shirt is amazing!
a. The Cool Breeaze yarn is specially constructed in a flat shape to increase contact with the skin; it is also channelled or grooved to permanently move moisture from the skin, and is derived from elements which noticeably increases the cooling effect on the skin: these elements from which the yarn extruded, are designed to absorb and remove heat from the skin at a higher rate than other synthetic yarns. ( The yarns have a higher “thermal effusively" than usual synthetic yarns)
b. The difference between the cooling effect of a regular synthetic or natural yarn and the Cool Breeze is noticeable to the touch, when the fabric is dry: and this difference increases substantially when you sweat and when you are exposed to wind or your move from a static state to an active state. All of this is clearly exhibited in the new ASTM D 7984 test which rates Thermal Effusivity of any material. Thermal Effusivity is defined as the capacity of a material to conduct thermal energy. As an example, if you touch an object made of metal in a room at room temperature, it will feel much ‘colder’ to the touch, than a wood object in the same room at the same temperature. The higher the Theramal Effusivity co-efficient, the greater the capacity of the material to conduct thermal energy and the ‘cooler’ the effect.
