For the record, my UA is black.

IMO whomever invented that coldgear must have made a deal with the devil. There is no way something that thin and light should be that warm. If there is a better brand out there, I'd like to try it.

I hate to admit it but UA = worth the price.

polypropylene


I have a lot of polypropylene and I still wear it, but it does not come close to UA coldgear, in my estimation.

For the record, the label on my coldgear reads: 63% Nylon, 23% Polyester, 14% Elastane. Just in case anyone wants to make some of their own.

Oh...thanks. And why do I keep saying "for the record"? Weird.

I just talk this stuff up in hopes that they will sponsor me anyway. So far, nothing.

Thin, light weight, and warm is what attracts me to UA. It is expensive but from what I have read about it there is nothing else like it. I have a short sleeve UA shirt I use for work, it is the opposite of the cold gear it keeps you cool when the heat is on. I like how it is from fitting and the way it feels so I think I will spend the extra $$$ money and invest in the cold gear. Thanks for all the great tips and advice!

I bought some UA a few years ago.  Not sure what grade I got though  (1, 2, or 3).  I believe it is the 3 though because it was specifically tagged for cold weather.  I have to say that it has worked pretty well.  I find that I don't get as cold as I used to. 

Having said that, my problem is my feet.  When my feet start getting cold, the rest of me gets cold.  Thank God for those Grabber foot warmers.  They have practically eliminated my cold feet issue. I cannot recommend them enough.  I stock up on these things prior to every season and I never leave home without them.  They cost a bit more than the toe warmers but I find the toe warmers don't provide enough warmth on the really cold days.  I have used them even with uninsulated boots and remained warm.
