We are working on them now. We thought we had it all set but the quality of the shirts didn't work out. The shirts looked good and the price was right but they were way to easy to pick. Once picked the shirt would run like a pair of hose

We should have something in a week or so to share on the sythetic line but know we are working on it.

Also as a side note look for hats coming soon! I always carry a hat in my tank bag to cover up the helmet hair. We will be doing some neat stuff.

Thanks to all who have ordered. Also thanks for the nice words about our ADV shirts and service. By the middle of Sept. there are going to be a few more goodies so keep checking the site.

Thanks again, NCbub

Great. I suggest the hats that do NOT have a formed crown. That way it can get squished and will not look goofy. Know what I mean?

I had the WARP-II shirts printed on polymesh long sleeves, they are available from PortAuthority (one of the common garment catalogs screenshops use) as "Sport-Tek" Dri-Mesh, # K368 (long sleeve) and K468 (short sleeve) in a few colors (white, grey, black, navy). I see they now have a new stretchy version of this material, # T255 "Compression"...

here's some more...

the K368's were about $3 more per shirt than top quality beefy-T long sleeve cotton.

my local screen shop hadn't printed on these before, they melted the first test print under the cooking lamp, so they had to watch the run closely, but they came out great.

Thanks for the info. I'll check on those, they look good and the fit seems nice.

Thats the type hat I like as well. Put it in a tank bag for a week pull it out and it still looks good. We will have some for folks to look at by next week I hope.

a few people didn't like them. I remember a couple guys complaining that when they wore them on hot days, they got serious BO.

I find they keep me nicely cool in dry heat under a touring jacket with open vents as long as I'm moving...

an XL fits me just about the same as the typical XL cotton shirt.


edit: oh yeah. in the art for printing on the mesh, leave plenty of holes in the ink for breathing. use textures or screens over solid areas. big solid painted areas tend to get sticky. dieter did the warp-ii design very sparse for that reason, and I color matched it to the shirt

I've got one of those, and they're a great shirt for riding.

CA Stu had a pretty good idea for a shirt. Link

Hey DeWayne, While your looking into Hats, PLEASE, PLEASE look at the Flex-Fit Caps, or one that is made for large heads. I have a Big Noggin and rarely find a cap that fits well. I have found the XL Flex Fits do OK. Just Asking for us Cranial Challenged people.


Boojum!

Same here. I persevered through several screens of that lousy software, including setting up an "account" to assist the data-miners, all to no effect.

Next!

I thought it unfortunate that I was unable to complete the process satisfactorily enough to purchase a few ADV shirts. But to add insult to injury, I have now recieved a PM that more or less accuses me of being a financial deadbeat and of thread-crapping in relating my experience.

Hey, way to help out your customers! If they can't negotiate your website, don't offer to help out, just insult them! That'll teach them!

Of course, I've already been spammed by the site software that insisted on setting up an "account" to better serve me.

In closing, I would suggest that if this site lends its good name to commercial enterprises such as this, and I wonder in passing just what "Part of the proceeds go right back to Baldy", then they ought to be vetted for quality assurance.

Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa!
Apologies are in order to Azkiwi. We here at Ink,Inc. have sinned. It seems we have responded to a legitimate post about a problem with an order by insulting our customer. If we would have removed our heads from our asses long enough to look at Azkiwi's order, we would have seen the obvious processing problem. It was in no way, shape, or form due to his financial position or information provided. We apologize for any embarrassment we have caused. In the future we promise to actually look at all the information at hand to solve any issures before we go shooting off our supersized mouths.

Once again, APOLOGIES!
