    I have 2 shirts from them and there sooo nice... The benefits are that there thin and the wind goes right through them... It feels like your not even wearing anything, the fabric is sooooo comfortable, I love under armour!

    They wear it under their regular jersey so I assumed it would make you hotter.

    I'm pretty sure it wicks moisture away from your skin. Its nice stuff, but very expensive. Nike makes a line of gear that is very similar.

    like GotMojo? said, the underarmour works as a wicking base layer under your jersey so it actually keeps you cooler by pulling the moisture away from your skin. i have several Defeet Un-D-Shirts that do the same thing. awesome stuff.

    I've been pitching UA to friends for the past three years.

    Got Cold Gear first and wore it when it was -37 celsius outside with just a hoody over it and I wasn't cold. Actually forgot that it was cold except that my ears were a little chilly :P

    But as for the Heat Gear... excellent stuff. I swear by the stuff.
    I've got 2 t-shirts and one cutoff. They're great stuff and as I did for my friends and family... I suggest it to you too
