Cold Gear is for cold environments and is meant to keep you warm. Heat Gear is meant for warm environments and is meant to keep you cool.

If you're like me and sweat like a pig under your C/A, I'd suggest wearing a HeatGear top. If you don't wear hockey socks, just UA pants, then wear some ColdGear pants.

Better yet, just go to Wal-Mart and pick up some generic sweat-wicking clothes for 1/5th the price of UA. Then buy yourself a couple cases of beer, a couple pizzas, and sit back with your buds and watch a movie.

I found that the cold gear retains too much heat under the CA. I also found that the full length arms are more comfortable for me but prefere shorts rather than the full leg. Bottom line is what makes you happy.

I agree with this post.

UA is all marketing. Polyester and lycra is polyester and lycra, there's no magic to it. No amount of commercials on sportscenter or giant billboards changes that.

If you're wanting to stay warm, nothing works better than good old military-grade polypropylene thermal shirts.

I should clarify, I play a fair amount of my games outdoors, thus the cold gear recommendation. I wear the same indoors and it's not an issue for me. And, I agree with Mike, the long sleeve version for the shirt, but full length for the pants.

+ freaking +, and the OP sounds like he has fallen for it.

I will admit to having a few RBK lycra shirts, but at $10 a pop shipped, I was foolish to pass them up.
