About Rock Climbing T-Shirts and other Shirts:
Climbing shirts complement the requirements that are mandated by gear like climbing backpacks and harnesses. A good shirt is more than a utility piece though, ideally you want a comfortable shirt that looks great and makes you feel like a badass in addition to being abrasion resistant and durable.
Advancing textile technologies means that climbing shirts are only getting better, and wearing the right clothes for adventure can get you noticed in more places than the trail. I wore a climbing shirt out on the town the other night and, after a stranger complimented me on it, I was challenged to a tree climbing competition. Little did my opponent know that in addition to having the right climbing equipment for the job I have the added benefit of a prehensile tail, which increases my balance and gives me an extra gripping appendage. Long story short, I won 5 dollars thanks to wearing a cool climbing shirt.
