WET T-SHIRT?

Cotton may no longer kill: The fabric that's been anathema to good outdoor layering is getting an overhaul. Cotton Incorporated spent the last two years designing a hydrophobic yarn that pulls moisture away from the skin, allowing it to dry twice as fast as traditional cotton, absorb half the water, and stay chafe-free when sweaty. Time will tell whether the resulting fabric, which Polarmax used to make this TransDry Cotton T (from $45; polarmax.com), can hold its own against merino wool or synthetics, but our first impression is good.
