The correct Under Armour shirt for hockey?
 
Would anyone know which style of long-sleeve t-shirt is considered the best for hockey players? Is it the Heat Gear model, Loose Gear, Cold Gear?

I use loosegear and i like it, but I believe coldgear is also an insulator.

i nearly hyperventilated wearing a shirt thatw as to tight and didnt let my skin breath. I think loose fit would be good

You should go with loose gear.

I use a short sleeved heat gear shirt, and its great.

KingChris 05-16-2006 12:58 PM

They have the All Season LS that works great, the Heat gear is to thick.

Thanks! :bow:

Actually there's a "grip" version of UA that helps keep your pads from shift around too much.

Nike version:

I personally waer the heat and loose...and I have a buncha other brands too, I like them all.

I wear one of the Nike Dri-Fit shirts and love it. It's not one of the super tight ones. Which I why I like it so much.

night-timer 05-17-2006 05:51 PM

Thanks a million!

I've got a Nike joggers shirt, probably similar to UA products, but it's starting to get a bit grotty. UA stuff looks a lot better.

I'm the type who rocks a "lucky" t-shirt under his gear every time I hit the ice. Are these shirts really worth it and do they make a difference?

Canadian Chris 05-18-2006 12:24 AM

The answer to that is yes...I've got 4 of the heat gear, 2 short sleeve and 2 no sleeve...

I haven't tried that "grip" version yet though...may be worth looking into...

but the stuff is magnificant!

I Actually just bought Under Armour batting gloves for baseball the other day too....*drool*....

Loose gear is not ment for hockey. Heat gear is for people who does workout.

I use the tight fit. Works fine. Infact, it absorbs sweat better then the loose fit.

Anyone know where to get the old school blue ringer shirts you see NHLers wearing. I noticed Peca wearing one last night. Never saw them in stores though.

Kardi 05-18-2006 08:42 AM

a loose long sleeve is what i go for, nothing is worse then skating at very fast speeds and being cold

I see a lotta guys wearing stuff like this...cept I didn't notice what Peca had. Do believe I saw a couple guys with this type shirt on...Ehrhoff for one I know.

The Tikkanen 05-18-2006 05:22 PM

Itech makes a shirt like that, blue with mesh arm pits. Works just as well as the dri fit but breathes better. Most of the Nike Dri-Fit stuff they make for baseball works well too since it is made to keep them cool. I've also found the tight stuff makes me too hot. http://www.greatskate.com/acb/showde...5249&CATID=188

you guys rule, thanks.
