Polyester shirt - uncomfortable?
Tried my first Yonex 100% polyester badminton shirt. It was very light, but oh boy, it was not comfortable. With that, I meant it doesn't absord my perspiration and I felt hot. Isn't the shirt designed to feel comfortable, or are there different types of polyester shirts?

my personal comments on my dri-fit polyester tops:
ashaway, apacs, proace - value for $
kason, victor, mizuno - very comfortable

It may be that you just don't like polyester shirts (I don't at all), I prefer cotton as it absorbs moisture (but it retains it too). I know I'm in the minority as most people don't wear cotton, but I really don't like polyester - I find it doesn't absorb sweat and actually makes me feel even sweatier, for me poly shirts just dry quickly when I stop playing.
I have a nike dry-fit - its very light and cool feeling, but not absorbent. I can't comment on Yonex, but not all poly shirts are the same.

i personally prefer Adidas ClimaCool clothing over Yonex VeryCool clothing because i don't see much difference in performance but the Adidas is half the price of Yonex.

yonex "very cool" design technology is suitable most especially in hot and humid countries.

Cotton t-shirts work very well for me, though it usually gets very heavy towards a 2hr session.

To be comfortable, shirts for badminton must have, first good absorbency, and second fast evaporation of the water/sweat held. For hot and humid countries it may surprise you that the best shirts are the very expensive cotton polo shirts. They may cost US$100-US$150 each but they last a life time.
But such shirts are not very suitable for cold climates because of their too rapid evaporation, which tend to cool the body down rapidly, leaving you with a rather cold or chilled body. In which case you can use the cheaper cotton polo shirts or even polyster shirts.

Nope i do not. I am not the one doing the laundry, so i guess i shouldnt be so mean as to wear so many pieces in one session.

For me, I use Yonex shirts and shorts, with Very Cool. They have Very good heat dissipation and absorption. The ones I am using are the models which are made in Japan.
