    Are the Target / Wal Mart brands comprable to the UA? If so I'm gonna have to try them cuz the uniform store and Dick's Sporting Goods is popping me for 25 bucks a shirt.

    While we're on the subject, this has been the hottest damn summer I can remember I do it all...the UA shirts....baby powder....febreeze, but after a 12 hour shift this summer, I can't stand to be around myself when I pop off the ol' kevlar girdle

    I powder up with baby powder under my vest and did the same with the shorts. Trust me when it's 80-85 degrees with humidity through the roof you will do anything to keep cool!

    Anyway, with the powder and shorts it felt like my cheeks were sitting on satin pillows all night and someone was fanning my nether regions with a palm frond.

    If you like the shirts try the shorts.
    that post made me giggle...

    I bought a ribbed Cool-Max shirt just the other day. I wear it under a blunt-trauma vest, and though I find it keeps me dryer, it feels a few degrees hotter than a t-shirt. It also stunk like nobodies business after just one shift.

    Needless to say, I'm not very impressed.

    I normally wash my regular t-shirts daily and my vest once a week, and I've never had a problem with odour.

    I wear UnderArmour under my sixty-pound vest in the 130 degree heat of Iraq. I wash it by hand and line dry it in the sun. I have no problems, notice no odor, and they show little wear and tear.

    Maybe you need to change your diet or soap or shower schedule or something. It could be the water or detergent, but you said everything else smells fine.

    It's made in Hawaii but sold in the mainland....the stuff really works to curb body, foot, breath odor!

    I use it because I go outside a lot and believe me it works

    Do a google search on it.....

    I just picked up a couple at target on sale, they were Champion brand. Work very well. I have to go back and get some more.

    Check out: Vest Guard

    ..Also, there is a line from Japan that carries T-shirts that work very much the same way as UA, but have an antibacterial component. Interested? They have Men's and Women's styles. Check out: Zeo-Line

    Southladeputy: Try spraying some Fabreeze on your vest panels, your carrier and maybe even your shirts. My wife washes mine with just plain detergent and I have never noticed an odor.
    I can feel for southladeputy. I am also from South LA (that's louisiana) and know that there is no humidity anywhere in this country like that along the coast of the 85 degree Gulf of Mexico.

    I work in the ******* of America (southeast CA--112-115 Deg. avg in July and August). I have use the Merona, Under Armor and the Champion brands. The champion is the coolest and longest lasting of the three.

    Also--try hanging them to dry in the sun. The sun tends to kill many odor causing bacteria.

    But does it keep you cool like Under Armor does? That's the main reason I love UA. I'm going to be trying the C9 brand (by Champion) that they sell at Target; look for a review in this thread soon.

    I can't remember the name of the stuff but I saw some kind of detergent in a running store made for synthetic fibers.

    I know it wasn't this stuff but the product is probably similar. I found this on a google search.
