Under Armour Fall 2013 Gear Review
At Boston Fitness Magazine, we’re big believers in interval training for conditioning. Under Armour gave us the opportunity to test out their new Micro G Monza running sneakers. These things are built for high speed training with constant foot contact in mind. If you’re looking to hit your 100 meter, or 400 meter sprints, these kicks are ideal. The Micro G heel cushion is designed to absorb impact and rebound your foot into forward momentum. The Toxic Six sneakers are still available and super popular. Our last review broke those innovative running shoes down here.
The 1/4 Zip T-Shirt we tried was perfect for a night-time run, or to wear under or over a t shirt or jacket, or by itself. The T-shirt is the same material that started the performance apparel revolution, but it’s a “layering” type of T. It is a loose fit T to give you range of motion and it has flatlock seams to allow chafe-free movement. Lastly, it has odor-blocking technology to prevent the growth of bacteria and odor!
For the females, we tested the fitted, dual-layer EVO ColdGear contruction long sleeve Infrared V-neck. The Infrared shirt uses a material that absorbs and retains your own body heat to keep you warm on cold days or night time workouts. Also, the Run Stretch Woven Capri’s were purely built for running. The fabric is super light, but it is gridded for durability.
Under Armour hasn’t been around quite as long as their competitors, but it seems like most of the competition is taking notes on what UA is up to these days. Their new Fall line is full of awesome gear and new technologies to help us enhance our performance and comfort. Great stuff.
