"We Entertain When It Rains"  



Here in the Northeast, weather conditions can change quickly. It was snowing on Oct 30th but 65F the next day.  We need outdoor clothing that can perform in all types of conditions.

The new line of AllSeasonGear from UnderArmour promises to do just that...be comfortable when it's warm out and keep us warm when the temperature drops.

One of the ways UnderArmour met the challenge was to design their gear with fabrics that will quickly wick away perspiration from the skin.  Some of the key features of their new Metal line of AllSeasonGear like the Mock-T shirt is the SilverPoly liner mesh, the FLATLOCK seams, and microfiber fabric.

Of course, there were no sewn on label tags to irritate the neck.  The sizing information was actually attached to the outside of the garment, away from the skin.  Nice.

The microfiber fabric used for the front felt as smooth as silk, but has the stretch properties of spandex.  The FLATLOCK seams not only provide comfort, but also stretch in all directions just like the various fabrics you may layer on top of it, providing no interference with the movements of the user.

Large vent area under the arms help with the ventilation and moisture control.  The stitching and cut of the fabric reduces chafing by positioning the seams away from contact with the arms.

The grey mesh back allows for four way stretch, fast heat exchange, and precise fit.  This garment will not bunch up underneath the top layer no matter how vigorous the activity.

We look forward to trying out this gear in our FirstUse report.  Check back to see what we thought of its performance!

Performance undergarments have been a pretty quiet clothing category until UnderArmour entered the market.

UnderArmour almost single-handedly elevated the entire segment with their innovative approach to a piece of clothing that most folks had been ignoring for decades. 

In retrospect, the underlayer is probably the most important layer for temperature regulation, comfort, and performance of an athlete...weekend or otherwise.

In this FirstLook review, we'll examine the UnderArmour's new Metal AllSeason garment itself and see what makes it different from your basic cotton T-shirt.

In the FirstUse report, we'll let you know how well it performed in a variety of activities.
