Best lightweight shirts and pants for hot climates?

October 18, 2011

So get a load of this:

I’m going to the Peruvian Amazon in December for a week, the height of their humidity/rainy season.  There Will Be Mosquitoes.  I’ll be on malaria meds the whole time (thank you, western technology and income!), but some of you KNOW how miserable mosquitoes make me when I’m unprepared for them.


I know what DEET is, and I’ll bring, like, a paint bucket full of it.

That leaves clothing.  I’ll need some long-sleeve shirts and long pants to wear that won’t drive me crazy in the (canopy-sheltered) heat.

Can you give me some suggestions for brands and websites at which to shop for this loot?
