I find that UA cold gear works well if you put a thin layer of something cotton directly over it as the wind passes through quite well. But don't get it too tight, as it gets a little annoying after awhile. And if you haven't shaved in awhile, or have a beard, CUT THE TURTLE NECK OFF.

I like it. It has kept me warm from Alaska to North Carolina and quite a few places in between. It is meant as a base layer though so don't expect it to stop any wind. I have not tried any of the cheaper stuff to see if it is comparable.

Not in my opinion.

I have the pants and the top (cold gear), thankfully I got a good deal on them. I dont ever wear them. My experience with them is that they keep me warm while I am moving about, however, if I sit for periods on the stand I would get cold. Also, I am quite a hairy dude (legs, chest) and the UA annoyed the hell out of me. Itched like crazy. They are great for some but not for me.

I will say that I dropped some coin on the UA camo gloves and really like them.

I haven’t had much luck wearing under armour.I small game hunt and this requires plenty of walking. I either have a light or heavy top next to my skin with a fleece pullover and then my Gore-Tex jacket. Within a few hours my back is soaked from sweat. I peel off the under armour and just wear the fleece next to my skin. This year I’m trying Smartwool as a base layer in a lightweight nts. I’m hoping this combination will work for me. Also Patagonia capaline is a great next to the skin base layer.

Military surplus ECWCS. $25 for the hoodie, top, and bottoms at the deer expo this spring. Military stuff is the best hands down. Save yourself some money.

For warmth, I really like the Rocky stuff I bought at Walmart. It says med weight, but it is very warm!

Under Armor is the best investmentI ever made for hunting,I own three of the Cold Gear tops. The thing is I sit alot and I never get cold with the UA on. I do know though, that when I do walk around a ton the UA tends to become wet from all the sweat.Overall though if you like to sit and want to stay warm than I think that there is nothing better.

UA cold gear works for me. I layer UA cold then some Rocky stuff on top. Very warm as I treestand hunt. Is it worth it? Way over price. Does it work? Yes. Since I layered with UA and fleece combo, I managed to stay warm for the past couple years. Before that, I was shaking.
