cool, wicking shirts that don't feel wet?

I'm looking for a shirt that has all three of these: (1) feels cool when I'm overheated and (2) made of wicking material that dries quickly and (3) feels dry to the touch even when wet. Polyester and other synthetic cycling jerseys are cool to wear and wicking, but feel wet. Thin merino knits will wick moisture and feel dry even when wet, but I find them very warm. [more inside]

Recommendations for dressing out of a backpack?

For the next two months (possibly longer) I need to live/work out of one bag. I'll be traveling for most of that time, with places to stay (no need for a sleeping bag or the like). What I need to figure out is clothing. I'm bad at clothes. I know there are great wicking fabrics and lightweight travel garments out there, and that they're improving all the time. (I'm ready to do sink laundry every evening.) As of spring 2013, how can I best use my 26 liters of space to keep myself clad? [more inside]
