    Unlike Bigg Dogg and lionheart, I love them. After wearing UA, I HATE wearing cotton under my vest.
    Same here. I am kinda old fashioned and never dreamed of wearing spandex type stuff. I also got one for a birthday present from my wealthy sister. I wore it(UA) and will never wear anything else. It does let my armor slid around more but The dry underarms ect is a good trade off. The cold weather UA I really like. No jacket required.

      I recently switched from UA to the 5.11 tight crew and i like them a lot more than the UA. They are also cheaper.

          After reading this thread, I decided to dig up some of my under armour shirts and give them another whirl. I have noticed that I do sweat more than with cotton shirts. They say they "wick" away sweat, but where does it wick it too? The shirt is tucked in and it doesn't just pool up at the bottom.

          I like they way they look, and feel when you first put them on but the ones I have turned from white to grey real quick. Adn like mentioned, 25 bucks a pop for the cheapest ones is not worth it unless they are spun from gold thread.

            I'm torn on the issue, hearing that the shirts make you sweat even more is not good to hear - especially working in 118 degree Arizona. What exactly is the bonus of UA in this climate? i'm just not seeing it.

              I'm guessing your vest carrier, no?

                SAme here BUT the shoulder velcro on the vest, the undeside sticks to the shoulder area of the shirt. It sounds like its ripping or un-velcroing all night ling. I wear them but I dont pay for them. I dont have a 22 y.o.'s body anymore and dont or cant wear the actual heat gear, tight stuff. I get loose gear and its ok at best.
                I like a regular cotton t shirt.
                I got nothing for now

                  I started using them when I worked in Qatar. It could hit 135 there and wearing a bulky vest caused me to sweat so much I looked like I just came out of the ocean at the end of the night. The underarmor was worth its weight in gold. Cotton felt clammy and didn't do my skin any favors. I didn't sweat any less in the UA, but my skin didn't break out and I didn't feel so clammy.

                    The UA wicks the sweat away from the body so it can evaporate faster. However the sweat trapped under your vest has a hard time evaporating. So you will feel a bit uncomfortable regardless. The shirts don't feel heavy and soaked like Cotton T's do.

                    In the spring/summer months, it doesn't matter what I have on, I sweat terribly. If I'm stuck on an incident long enough, I'll have sweat come through my uniform shirt where ever my vest doesn't cover. I hate this job in the summer.

                      No. I noticed that my carrier gets wet when sweat soaks through a cotton shirt. When I wear the UA, my vest carrier does seem to be drier but I get a slimy sticky feeling at the end of shift on my skin. Like it was all trapped inside.

                      I haven't worn them for a long length of time so I wouldn't know if it makes me break out but I can see how that would clog pores.

                        Let us not forget the “cold-gear” under armor. I’m currently in Alaska and loved them when it sunk to -30/40 degrees this winter. I just got a lateral cop job in Nevada. I got lots of under armor “heat-gear” in the closet. It should be interesting. My first summer will suck. I Lived in the Desert before, but was working the jail then. I didn’t need to sweat the heat (no pun intended )

                          Don't wear them. They make me feel like I'm wearing a wetsuit. However, I do have some of the longsleve "Starter" Mock turtle necks for winter use.

                            I like the loose ones better, also. The tight ones may wick away moisture, but the reason you have so much of it is that the tightness has rubbed off your deodorant. I might be drier, but I stink more. I think the loose-cut wicking is the best of both worlds.
                            If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

                              I don't like how they make my chest look pink in the "V of death" area.

                              They're pretty comfy though. Usually during the winter, I could get away with wearing a UA shirt, a cotton shirt, my vest, and a short sleeve when it was in the 30's outside. I HATE wearing a long sleeve unless I absolutely have to.

                                I got some nice ones at Target...$10 each...grabbed 4 of them for every day of work. They have a nice tight collar as well so it looks professional under my vest. Nothing is worse than a wet cotton tshirt that is wrinkled up under your vest.
