Under Armour

I realize UA clothing and hunting gear is EXPENSIVE, but that old saying "you get what you pay for" is true with this brand. I do not have any cold-gear camo in UA but let me tell you what, their clothing line is about as comfortable as it gets. I have a light weight camo shirt I wear for bow hunting and/or turkey hunting and I have 3 UA cold gear compression tops as my base layers. I also have 3 pairs of the compression bottoms. I realize the cold gear camo pants and coats are up there in price... but seriously, I would have to say they are probably worth it. Will I be buying any of it? Probably not anytime soon, but I strongly believe it is superior to anything else.

Now that said, I was thoroughly disapointed today when I went to Bass Pro wanting to buy a fitted, camo UA hat they had ABSOLUTELY NONE. I about fell over in disbelief. ALL their UA hats were extremely thin in material and had snap back (I hate snap back hats). Supposedly that's what UA is going to this year is what the boy told me there are BP. BIG MISTAKE if you ask me.

Thumbs up

I don't have a lot of UA stuff, but do have a pair of light gloves from them that I love. They get worn pretty much every day that I deer hunt, from warm October days to the coldest January ones (under heavier gloves). I am prolly due to but another set as they have been repaired about three times where they've ripped a bit.

I have a lot of UA polo shirts and shorts and they are the most comfortable clothing made. Gfd...I'm like you...I wait until the stuff goes on a sale and then buy it up. I have found a lot of it at Marshall's which is a clothing store where they sell recalled items or factory closeouts/overruns.

I bought a pair of UA 800 gr hunting boots at Bass Pro only because they were marked way down, I'll let you know how they perform.

Not a fan of UA stuff here. I have one of their hooded sweatshirts and it is lousy. You sweat inside the thing so much that you can't wear it outside or you get chilled. I've looked over their shoes at Sportsmans Warehouse and they look just like another me-too-made-by-somebody-else fare. Just seems like more hype than substance.
