    I have to admit I have become an Under Armor addict!!! I love everything they have but have to buy it sparingly as it is expensive!!

    I do love the way it feels and fits but am wondering is it really that great? sometimes I catch myself buying it just because of the guys in the ads look so fuckin hot in it!!! And of course I think I might look hot in it to! haha

    What do you guys think? Is the quality of under armor woth the price or are we paying for great marketing tools and great models?

    Yes, I just got four loose fitting T-shirts for working out in and I love them. Definitely worth the price. After all, to buy a Nike, Adidas or Reebok shirt is not much cheaper. Cotton t-shirts are too hot and start feeling heavy with sweat after my 3 mile run.

    I have been a fan of UnderArmour gear for years. I have tried other types but for playing sports (mine is Volleyball) they are the best!
    There are other similar brands, but UA seems to have better overall quality and lasts the longest. YES I think they look and feel hot as well (in the sexual way not heat) icon_smile.gif

    I recently bought a couple of new "heat gear" compression items. They're noticeably tighter than the ones I bought last year, So, they do stretch and thin out with time.

    Anyway, I wear them a lot as the "base layer" in cooler weather. I just wish they came without the logos. Oh, and I didn't like it much at first, but I'm coming to like the fit of the "boxer jock" they sell.

    Edit: They do seem uncomfortable when the body hair gets long... I suspect that it causes extra friction. They feel great when it's trimmed or shaved though.

    I received a shirt as a gift . I can't wear it. I really dislike the synthetic hot felling on my skin. My Nike wickable etc. also a gift is even worse. I guess I sweat to much for these fibers.

    I definitely prefer their muscle shirts for working out over a cotton T-shirt. Their fabric doesnt cling to the sweaty skin.

    UnderAmour is good stuff. Comfy, and lasting. I've had some of my stuff for 8 years and it's fine.
