Under Armour (UA) was founded with this worthy goal—to launch an athletic clothing line designed to keep you cool, dry and light, no matter what outdoor activity you are engaged in. The HeatGear line was created to be worn during the warmer seasons and the CoolSwitch line is to be worn during the cooler seasons. UA HeatGear wicks sweat, regulates body temperature and is manufactured with the most versatile and breathable fabric. UA CoolSwitch uses an exclusive coating on the inside that pulls heat away from your skin so you feel cooler and can keep active. The moisture transport system wicks sweat and dries fast, keeping you feeling clean and refreshed all day long. The anti-odour technology prevents the growth of odour-causing microbes so you feel and smell fresh during workout sessions. In addition, you stay safe in the sun with the clothing’s 30+ UPF protection.
Hook, line and sinker
Under Armour launched an appealing line for men—the Chesapeake plaid, short-sleeved fishing T-shirt. Men can enjoy fishing in comfort; this shirt offers a loose fit and breathable material, manufactured with 100 per cent polyester. Catching fish is the fun part, gutting is another story—UA ensures this fabric contains stain-release material, keeping blood, guts and dirt from penetrating. The HeatGear fabric lets nothing stop you from fishing all day long: rain or shine—cast your line!

Plaid is popular—so you can fish in fashion or wear this shirt hiking, canoeing or driving on a long trip.
Cast your line, ladies
Under Armour launched a new line for women—a CoolSwitch tank top with a crossover back design consisting of 88 per cent polyester and 12 per cent elastane. It’s perfect for gearing up the quad with ease, loading up the tackle box and heading out to your secret fishing hole.
The UA logo appears on the front with a reflective coating, visible to all. The scoop neck welcomes the cool breeze, and with the slight drop-tail hem, you can enjoy the outdoors in comfort. The mesh side paneling is designed for extra ventilation along with the large sleeve opening for extra mobility and range so you can cast out your lure with precision.

Comfortably chic ‘n classy

The wind blows freely through the polyester/elastane tank, adding to the coolness factor.
I find the lightweight material feels incredible on my skin, and this UA tank offers an absolutely cute sense of style. The dropped armhole is designed for extra mobility and range so I can cast my lure at a great distance.
