    Default 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?

    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.

    Same, I also have a Adidas ClimaCool T-shirt and it works very well. I haven't had a chance to try a Yonex VeryCool so I can't comment on them.

    You pretty much got it right. I use poly polo golf shirt for golfing and they felt great. However, when I wore my Yonex ones indoors, they felt hot. Not absorbing the moisture at all. Yes, they are genuine. Got a couple as prize from a tournament. The supplier sells true Yonex equipments.

    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.
