Long sleeve performance shirts are typically made of cotton, but some are designed with moisture wicking material. These shirts can be layered under jackets, hoodies or other types of shirts to provide added warmth. The long sleeves are typically light weight and can be pushed or rolled up on the arm.

Some great sporting and recreational uses for this type of wear would include hunting, fishing, running, soccer, volleyball and even bike riding.

When you purchase in store you have the added bonus of inspecting the fabric first hand. Online you have to rely on other consumers comments, so you know exactly how thick and stretchy the fabric is. Some cotton is preshrunk while other cotton is not. It is important to also have a thorough understanding of the size chart. You may be a medium for one brand but a large for another. Long sleeve shirt measurements should include the length of the arms as well as the body of the shirt.
