So for all who don't know, Under Armour is a brand of underclothing made for performance sports. As my skier friends constantly whine, it's very rarely on sale, and is almost always on the exclusion lists of TSA coupons and the like. At my Marshall's, they had a crap load of Under Armour (as well as Under Armour knockoffs made by nike and others) for sale.

Most of it was the traditional artificial fabric garment made for performance sports. I saw tons of l/s shirts, and the occasional short sleeve shirt as well. THe L/S shirts ran for $17.

THey also had gray, cotton feeling shirts, for $15. I picked one up to test it out.

Hopefully, this will help people out as there are rarely sales on Under Armour.

PS This was at a West Phoenix AZ Marshalls (Loop 101 and McDowell)

Thx for the tip OP! I will have to check out my local store

Thanks OP>>> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0>

what was the retail price of the shirt you picked up?

LS Heat Gear = $29.99

We sell under armour at the store where I work, there is nothing real special about it other than the name. If you can get it for half prce it is a good deal. I work at an outdoor specialty store. I have used Patagonia, Under armour, Helly Hanson, Duofold, and Kenyon. I am very active and find if the design properties are similar it all performs the same. You need to purchase to match the activity.

You going to ask her for pictures next? Sheesh buddy, take your flirting elsewhere. This is a SERIOUS deals forum. Btw, if you're a SWF in your 20's, I'm just kidding.

Yeah, I have one. They basically take polyester and and add a spandex type of product. I've compared alot of these "dry wicking" clothing and found that they are pretty much the same, including Under Armour.

The next level ones have silver woven into the fabric and make the clothing "odor free" because the silver kills the bacteria that makes sweaty clothes smell bad.

thanks. will check it out. the gray UA stuff is pretty decent. I think it's discontinued though now that they have Tech T's and loose gear.

why not by the one's made by champion and starter for under $12 already. Under Armour is a name brand IMO. Just like levi's. I can get 2 pair of wrangler's for the price of 1 pr levi's and they hold up just as well.

I think Under Armour is sort of like NIke's dri-fit. Anyway, my body is not like T.O. so I can't wear this kind of stuff. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border=0>

If you're a runner, may I ask what type of shoes you wear? The argument could be made that a top pair of asics, NB, Adidas, Nike, or whatever else is fundamentally the same with a pair at Payless. THey might have different cushioning or flex technologies, but in the grand scheme of things, are roughly the same. The runners I know tend to be extremely picky about the shoes they wear, often never switching brands, or even models of shoes. A big part of this is the perceived mental advantages within wearing something which one is completely comfortable with.

So anyways, I know that Starter makes shoes (poorly), as well as mock Under Armour. If the Starters are $20, but there's a pair of nice (fill in the blank) shoes on sale for $35, which would you pick? And to think, the price difference here between Starter and Under Armour is only $4!

The thing about under armour is that it is designed to fit EXTREMELY well, and show off all the muscle definition you have. But all too often the only people I see wearing this stuff are lanky people with no definition or people carrying way too much weight.

looks good!

The founder of Under Armor graduated from Johns Hopkins. I know, because he came back our department to talk about it.

Bascially the under armor is woven polypropylene, polyester, lycra blend with a light soil prevention surface modification. He talked about how they marketed the product and how he managed his supply chain from overseas, while only going to China twice a year.

It is the same as any polypropylene-based wicking clothing. Less polypropylene (the cheap component) means more soil prevention. I bought a pack of 3 long sleeve polypropylene undershirts for $8 from Macy's a while back. They wick sweat and they don't stain easily.

UA is expensive, because you have to pay for the ads.

He also played football for UMD, the Terps. In fact the Terps are the first team to wear Under Armour Jerseys.

Ours had only women's sizes. Had gone to get some for my husband and wondered if he still might be able to fit in one, but like a poster above said, they are very form-fitting, and the women's versions are definitely made for women. This was a couple of weeks ago -- don't know if they still have them, and I think everything they had was long-sleeved.

Wish we had a Marshalls here! Our family uses UA under our dobaks when we do TKD. We have tried the Starter and other similar brands. I like the UA the best because of the fit of the women's frequency tees and it doesn't feel as heavy as the generic versions we've tried.

He graduated from Maryland, not Hopkins... I used to see the guy on campus quite a bit. He's from the area and the headquarters for UnderArmour is in Baltimore I believe so that may be why he was up at Hopkins...

Osei is correct, I believe he was stated as a Maryland alum on the site bio...

The F&F deals at Champs usually bring down the UA price to like $17.50 and that usually is your best bet to get it under the retail of $24.99 for the base HeatGear...

WILL YOU PROTECT THIS HOUSE?!?!?!!


sorry someone had to do it.

You have all bought into the hype and advertising. You are still paying too much even if you buy this at Marshall's

I thought it was WE MUST PROTECT THIS HOUSE?

I've saw a lot of UA at TJ Maxx stores around my house as well. Marshalls is too far of a drive for me.

I do a lot of winter backpacking and camping with the scouts, plus hunting and fishing. My kids where Underarmor but as a true Fatwalleter, I went with the cheap stuff ($6 for the long sleeve shirt and pants). Very lightweight and you can't believe the warmth. I'd buy Underarmor if they came down to $10 bucks simply because I "perceive" they are better quality but I doubt they perform any better...just hype.

Can you link to some of these? My problem with these Under Armour/wick style shirts is that they truly reek when I'm done working out. Plus, for all the "we don't absorb sweat" ads, I can literally wring out my shirt and have tons of water fall from it when finished, same as cotton. Now I like the T-shirt style ones (looser), not the tight-fitting ones.

At least the silver stuff could help with the smell.

I've tried Under Armour, Nike, Champion, the EMS brand TechWick, and 1 other, and I don't notice any difference. My friend (avid skier) swears by Under Armour, but he's one of the more brand-conscious people I know.

Marshalls and TJ Maxx are owned by the same coproration.

Clean the stuff you have with shampoo to remove oils from perspiration. hth.

As someone who is training for the LA Marathon for the second year in a row (did not run it last year due to injury, nor this year because of a wedding), I can tell you that shoes make the difference. Just going in and picking up a pair of shoes that "feels" comfortable may cause you problems in the long-run (bad pun, I know). Many people have issues with pronation or supination when they walk and run, and the proper shoes can correct this and help reduce the number of injuries to your knees (along with stretching and proper nutrition).

If I could find a pair of Payless sneakers that compared the quality of the $95 New Balance that I bought this year or the $105 Brooks from last year, I would. But I prefer to go the stores specifically designed for runners and get the quality that my feet deserve. Believe me, if there were a pair of $30 running shoes for sale at one of the running stores that did the job, I'd buy them over the $95 ones if they were comparable. Since that rarely happens, I'll go with the big names.

anyways, I always liked the way UA felt, but $30 for a shirt is ridiculous. As a previous post said, Nike makes a very similar if not the same fabric that does the exact same thing. Dri-fit is a different line, it's more for air ventilation and the material is different (has bigger holes). Either way, I never work out without these kinds of materials now. Cotton is just too restrictive, heavy and sweat absorbant to work out in.

BTW, Marshalls and Ross carry the Nike, Addidass/Reebok, Champs version of these for $10ish

green for you.

Hahaha. Being a Niners fan, TO's antics are pure entertainment now <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif" border=0>

I'll have to check out a Marshalls for the UA stuff. They make great base layers for skiing since the normal skiing stuff is usually a little too warm for my liking. Thanks, OP.


I have every single type of under armour imaginable and let me tell you...it is NOT the best quality. The loosegear shirts are not as soft as Nike DRI-FIT ones, and I was really dissappointed at that. They are somewhat thicker though, so if you do not have sensitive skin, you may prefer UA. For me though, it irritates my skin a little bit, the way wool sweaters do.

As for the heatgear, turfgear and coldgear...if you are looking for compression for the summer or sports, heatgear and turfgear are great. Coldgear is by far the thickest compression shirt I've ever seen, but again it isn't as comfortable (read: smooth) as the heatgear or Nike's products. Nike's compression tops are generally twice the thickness of heatgear and turfgear so they're a bit excessive in the summer.

I'm really a fan of UA mesh shorts though, they're the softest sports shorts I've ever worn... The Tech tee is just a regular baseball type T-shirt with some spandex blended in so it's somewhat stretchy...

Thanks for the tip on the DRI-fit.
I've got a UA loosegear shirt, and it's better than the 3 Starter ones I have (chafing around the neck). I'll have to try Nike's stuff.

I agree about the shorts though. UA is the softest.

There is this thing called graduate school people. Someone can be an alum of more than one college. Furthermore, I used under armour when i played football 3 years ago. Football was the original intention of under armour and for that it truely is the best. The other brands are not as form fitting and do not work well underneath pads. If you play a paded sport under armour rocks. If you are just a runner or some other sport that isnt football or lacrosse there is no point in getting under armour over another brand. Under armour has just expanded into other markets because they can, but this stuff is the only choice for football players.

You are correct sir. "WE MUST PROTECT THIS HOUSE!!!!!!"

Skipping 3 Messages...
today I went to Macys in Newport Mall at jersey city of NJ.
there is 65% off on UA underwear.
I bought a brief and a tank at 4.6 and 5.52.
the original price is 20 and 24. so it turned out 77% off.

don't know whether it is available in every Macys store or not.
