Under Armour Iso-Chill Technology Keeps You Cooler

Under Armour’s revolutionary Iso-Chill technology has been keeping athletes (pro or amateur) and outdoor enthusiasts cool for over 20 years. You really have to feel it to believe it. How does it work? It starts with the performance baselayer apparl. Sweat-wicking technology is a key part of staying cool on the pitch, slopes, field, and more. But a base layer can be the wrong idea if it is too warm. Think about a hubmid afternoon on the lake, or 18 holes in August. Heat causes fatigue – and your body will have to work harder to keep cool. This is inefficient because that’s energy you could be using for locomotion. Don’t reach your VO2 max too soon – that will negatively impact your endurance. It also means you’ll be both mentally and physically fatigued – and that’s not good for performance either. But that’s the sort of situation that Iso-Chill was designed for. How does UA Iso-Chill work? It changes shirt construction all the way down to the threads. A proprietary yarn that literally pulls heat away from the body [Read more …]

And for CrossFit style workouts (functional fitness) you need “high-intensity leggings” – that can stay put in the right place while you move around. But what if there were one versatile bottom that could support a woman through all these movements? So, while soft, comfy bottoms are a woman’s #1 choice – they are often [Read more …]

Secondly the “siping” is [Read more …]
