Women’s Under Armour Cold Gear

There are advantages to being a female athlete: more endurance, a greater tolerance for pain and the ability to look good doing it. That’s not to say that there aren’t disadvantages, which is why women’s Under Armour Cold Gear is necessary if you want to train during the winter months.

Women, in general, are more vulnerable to the cold than men are. This one of the drawbacks to having less muscle mass and a smaller body size than men, both of which lead to women having less ability to regulate their body temperature when the weather gets cold. On the upside, they tend to tolerate heat better.

But for the winter months, proper workout gear is essential, which is where women’s Under Armour Cold Gear comes in handy. Just dressing up in a bunch of heavy clothing, the usual method, isn’t going to work if you want to get the most of your winter workouts.

The problem is the matter of heat regulation; as you exercise, your body produces excess heat. The usual way to get rid of this is by sweating, but when you are bundled up in winter clothing your body can’t dissipate heat properly.

Women’s Under Armour Cold Gear is designed to allow your body to be able to maintain the right temperature, which means that you’re both more comfortable and able to perform better.

Basically you want to dress in layers, which allows you to keep more air around your body, producing better insulation. Generally speaking, you need at least two layers of women’s Under Armour Cold Gear for optimum results, and sometimes three or more.

The first layer is base layer, and here you want something that is tight fitting, like the leggings or compression shorts that Under Armour offers, but able to wick away moisture.

Your next layer is something heavier and somewhat looser, and your final layer, which is optional depending on what you’re going to be doing, is your shell layer, which protects you from the elements.

A good layout of women’s Under Armour Cold Gear would look something like this:

Base Layer Bottom

For this layer, you want something that fits snugly, so that it can keep the moisture off you. This will help to keep you both warm and comfortable. You’re going to be looking at women’s tights as your base layer.

Outer Layer Bottom

This layer is designed to provide insulation, so what you want is something that is loose enough to be able to keep a layer of air in between layer. It should still have the wicking capability, but fortunately all women’s Under Armour Cold Gear does. You’re going to want something like the Frigid pants for this.

Men’s Under Armour Cold Gear

As any man who has exercised outside during the winter, or just needed to shovel snow or chop wood can tell you, keeping yourself at the right temperature is tricky, which is what Under Armour Men’s Cold Gear is designed to help you with.

Staying cool is easy; just wear a tee shirt and hope that frost bite doesn’t kick in. Staying hot is easy too, just swath yourself in bundles of heavy clothes and hope you don’t pass out from it. Staying at a temperature where you’re comfortable, where you can get the most out of your workout, takes some work.

Fortunately, Under Armour Men’s Cold Gear makes it a whole easier. The Under Armour brand is generally associated with sports where the people are wearing nothing but Under Armour, but they’ve been able to apply the same technology they use to keep you cool while you workout to keep you warm in the winter.

The trick to all this is proper layering, which doesn’t keep you warm or cold but instead keeps you at the proper temperature which, as mentioned above, is much harder to do. But if you have the proper layers, in the proper order, you can allow your body to do what it needs to regulate your body temperature, regardless of the weather.

Proper layering with Under Armour Men’s Cold Gear basically consists of three layers. The first layer, called the base layer, is a layer of tight fitting clothing composed of a fabric that moves moisture away from your body.

The second layer is the mid layer, which consists of looser fitting clothing that allows you to trap air between the layers to provide insulation. Actually, the mid layer may actually be mid layers, since it’s possible that you will need more than one layer if dealing with extreme cold.

The last layer is the shell layer, which may not be needed all the time. Basically, this layer consists of materials, usually water proof or water resistant, and designed to keep the elements away from you. Obviously, if you’re outside but not playing in the rain or snow, you won’t need the shell layer clothing from the Under Armour Men’s Cold Gear line.

A good mix of Under Armour Men’s Cold Gear products would look something like this:

Base Layer Bottom

Here, you’re going to want something tight fitting like the Under Armour Men’s Cold Gear Leggings. You want it to be snug so that it wicks away the sweat.

Outer Layer Bottom

This is going to be looser, so any of the Under Armour Men’s Cold Gear pants over top of the leggings will be the job just fine.

Base Layer Top

Like the above, you’re looking for something that keeps you from getting drenched in sweat, like the Under Armour Men’s Cold Gear hoodie.

Under Armour Cold Gear Review

Under Armour has gone from being an obscure product for hardcore athletes to a power house brand in seemingly no time flat. The original Under Armour product was a compression shirt that was designed to wick away sweat and moisture from the body to let an athlete be cooler and more comfortable, but the line has rapidly expanded to include everything from jock straps to shoes.

This also includes expansion into the winter gear niche with the Under Armour Cold Gear line, which is supposed to keep you at the right temperature, neither too warm nor too cold, while keeping you dry. But whether it actually does that is what this Under Armour Cold Gear review is all about.

Of course, if we’re going to do an Under Armour Cold Gear review, we should probably talk about what exactly the line is. Basically, it’s a full line of clothing that encompasses everything from leggings and under shirts to heavy jackets, all of which are specifically designed for cold weather use. Under Armour also has the Heat Gear and All Seasons lines which are pretty much exactly what they sound like.

In this Under Armour Cold Gear review, we’re going to rate the line, as a whole on three different criteria: fit, comfort and effectiveness. These are the qualities that we feel will give us the best picture of how close the line comes to hitting the mark.

Fit

This is actually a little more important than you might imagine which is why we’re listing it in this Under Armour Cold Gear review. The reason for this is that the way the clothes fit is actually essential to them working the way that they’re supposed to.

The base layer needs to be close enough to the skin so that it can wick away moisture, while the mid layer needs to loose enough to keep air in so that you’re properly insulated. If either of these doesn’t fit right, then you’re going to lose effectiveness.

Fortunately, the Under Armour Cold Gear line fits really well. The only caveat is that while the clothing is generally meant to fit fairly snugly, it does run small, and so you should consider that when you’re buying.

Comfort

This is a fairly subjective thing, but it should be a part of any comprehensive Under Armour Cold Gear review. Basically, the whole point of Cold Gear is to keep you comfortable while you’re exercising. Despite the intentionally snug fit, we found that the whole line was almost stupidly comfortable. You could probably wear this stuff as pajamas and save on your heating bills in the winter.

Effectiveness

Ultimately, though, none of that matters if the gear doesn’t actually keep you warm.

What we found when we were testing the clothes for this Under Armour Cold Gear review [http://www.fitnessboxblog.co.uk/under-armour-cold-gear-review] is that the products work as advertised; we didn’t get sweat soaked, too warm or two cold no matter how hard we worked out.
