What do you all think of underarmor products? I have a few things in the lineup.I am with mixed opinions, and I was just wondering what some other thoughts are.
The Army is actually issuing the undershirts and compression shorts. The shorts are great, as the really reduce chaffing. The shirts don’t work as well as they are intended to. They are worn under BDU tops (sleeves down), so they don’t really get a chance to evaporate. On the plus side, they are easy to wash in a field environment, just rinse them out, hang them up and in a half hour you have a clean shirt (well, clean to field standards anyway).
As far as gym gear goes, once again, mixed feelings. It looks cool if you have the right frame for it. My gut shows more than I like, but my shoulders and arms look tight. I’m not out to impress anybody, but looking in a mirror
during a workout is motivation. As far as function, I can’t say it keeps me cooler, but it does disperse sweat better than a cotton tee.
The products are generally overpriced. I don’t know if they are made differently than others or if it is just a brand name. I bought a few off brand shirts from Walmart ($14 vs $30) and they seem to be the same. Is this stuff just glorified spandex.
