Under Armour?

Do you wear it and do you like it? I just bought an XL short sleeve under armour shirt and will be playing open hockey tonite with it. My past experience tells me its going to be to tight and not let my skin breath or cool off. last time I wore a Medium size and I thought I was going to pass out I was so over heated.

Believe me when I say this, Under Armour is THE comfiest clothing I have EVER worn.

I have my loose gear for hockey, my heat gear for hockey, a golf shirt, touque, hat, socks underwear, basically anything that I've found from them that could be useful, I've bought.

I have 2 Under Armour hockey shirts (They say 'Under Armour hockey' and I generally where them for ball hockey, and while they are a "little" on the tight side, they are amazingly breathable.

Under Armour isn't made for the 6'4" 280 pound hockey player.

worked good tonite, i stayed relativley cool, but not as cool as I would have with no shirt under my shoulder pads. Its a little warm sitting on the bench. I didnt know they had Under Armour hockey shirts.

I LOVE MY UNDER ARMOUR!!! probably the best investment ive made.. the stuff feels great when u find the right fit... I'm about 6'1" 200 and a large is fine for me.. but the stuff just sucks the sweat off you and breathes really good....

Yeah I love it. I like any of these vapor wicking shirts and stuff, I got all sorta brands, they all work the same so if UA is too much there's decent stuff at stores like Target for less. The tight ones and the loose baggy ones work for me, dont care which. So much better than a cotton shirt...though all my sweat goes into my pads instead being soaked in a cotton shirt.

I also love my Under Armor. Though I must admit it smells something awful when I'm done playing!

Very True, it does get pretty rank after a few games
