Under Armour® ColdGear® Infrared Scent Control EVO Mock for Men
Not worth the price
I have to agree with the other reviewer. This stuff is not worth $75 each. It also is not sized correctly. I wear an XL shirt size in everything and a 38 in waist. I am 6'4" and I held a XL shirt up to me in the store and could tell it was way too small. I know that it is supposed to stretch but this XL was the size of a normal small. I bought the 2XL shirt and after doing the same with the pants decided to go with 3XL. The 3XL pants are almost too small and too short. The 2XL shirt is way too tight and restrictive and too short in length and sleeve length. I wore the pants and left the tags on the shirt for a return and exchange. I usually wear my old Army issued "polypro" cold weather top and bottom and that is what I am comparing to. I used the pants as base layer and wore loose fitting cargo style hunting pants and my polypro top with my hunting shirt and coveralls over this. It was 38 degrees this morning and my core and arms were fine but my legs were freezing. It really felt like the under armour "cold gear" was absorbing all the cold air it could and channeling it directly to my skin instead of trapping my body heat. For $75 each for top and bottom and all the hype about cold gear, infrared, heat trapping, etc etc, I was expecting a lot more from this item. I would never recommend this to anyone unless you plan to continuously stay on the move. It seems to do ok when I was walking around but it is terrible for sitting still. It is also $20 higher than the exact same garment in non-camo colors.

This stuff is excellent. It stretches almost indefinitely so nothing ever comes untucked or exposed. Scent control seems to work, too, since I've gotten closer to deer wearing this stuff than ever before.

I recently purchased the complete set (Top, Bottom, Balaclava and Gloves) of the Under Armour ColdGear Infrared Scent Control under garments to be utilized for hunting in Western Kentucky. I wore them this morning for the first time with the temperature at around 34 degrees. I have about a half mile hike to the Stand I used this morning and I was a little concerned that I may have overdressed as the ColdGear, as advertised, was truly trapping & holding my body temperature. However, after getting settled into my Stand at about 5:30, that all began to change after about 15 to 20 minutes. After I had been motionless in the stand my skin temperature naturally began to decline. As this occurred, the material in the garments utilized to trap my body heat began cool off as though they were absorbing the cold morning air and radiating it into my body. My legs, arms, back and neck became increasingly chilled as the morning progressed. I was wearing one of the gloves on my left hand, but had to wear an ordinary un-insulated Brown Jersey glove on my right hand in order to accommodate wearing my Release. At around 7:30, I was digging through my backpack looking for the other Jersey Glove because my left hand was so cold. At 9:00, I couldn't take it any longer and called it a morning. If you're a hunter who's on the move and active as you hunt, this line of products may work for you. However, if you're hunting from a Blind or a Stand...It's not going to be a wise choice! I returned mine this afternoon!!
