    It isn't sweatproof, but doesn't hold sweat like cotton.

    I went to gym and almost died from heat exhaustion.. Not the best shirt...It does "wick" moisture away but not heat!

    How do the NRA shirts compare to these:
    http://www.abetterholster.com/products.htm

    I'm in FL and would be wearing either under mostly t-shirts and golf shirts.

    Also, how's the sizing on these shirts? I'm about a 40" chest/34" waist/5'9". I'd like it to fit snug but I don't want it to be too tight (especially after a few washes).

    Any other similar shirts/concealment ideas out there to consider for those of us in warm weather and light clothing? I'll mostly be carrying a Kahr PM9 or small 3" .45 1911.

    Thanks for any input.
