    Microfiber undershirts?

    Does anyone out there (mostly in hot climates), have any experience with these under armour tank tops for IWB CCW? I've been thinking about taking a trip out to Wally to check them out.

    I carry a Glock 21 in a C-TAC whick is a closed decision! I currently use cotton wife-beaters as undershirts, but when I move to FL, I just can't see that continuing.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated! - Oh and I did do a search. Couldn't find a thing.
    Above all else... Prioritize.

    I bought three Sam's Club underarmor-clone Tshirts that were advertised as "Moisture and Odor Management Tshirt"s. They were absolutely correct in their advertising. It was an extremely hot day, and I tend to sweat alot anyways, but I stayed pretty cool as the shirt just wicked away any moisture and odor...
    The people that I work with, were not as pleased at the performance of my shirt, wicking away my odor all over the office...

    Now I only use them to run and exersize...

    Odor is the main problem with the synthetic materials in my experience, as well.

    I use the wal-mart version of the under armor shirt. Here is a bad pick of my setup.



    Here in KS it has been getting to 95 degrees and it works real well.

    Good luck.

    I bought a few of these clone shirts at Wal-Mart and elsewhere to wear under my vest when I'm out working. They work great! When I'm done working, off comes the vest and I can wear the microfiber shirt tucked in with another shirt covering the holster or just pull out the microfiber shirt to use as the cover-up.

    I have an Underarmor and a Nike shirt of the same design. I wear them on days when I have a long outdoor assignment in hot weather. They work as advertised.

    A normal cotton undershirt will get saurated with sweat when worn under body armor and will sometimes bunch up under the body armor, which is very uncomfortable. Not a problem with the UA and Nike shirts.

    I'll look for the walmart brand.

    Post New Ones Out Now

    Not sure of the name of the company.

    They have ionized SILVER woven into the threads and the Silver kills the Bacteria AKA the Body Odor.

    Big Help ...I Know...since I can't remember who is producing them but, something you might want to watch out for when you're shopping around.

    My underarmor works great, but you'll smell like cat piss.

    i'm 6'2'' and 240 lbs with and average gut. I find the underarmor type shirts to be a bit uncomfortable. I wear the XXL but its still pretty snug on me making it uncomfortable. How are the rest of you guy making out with those shirts? Should I wear a size larger than I normally wear?

    I'm 6'1"... I was 248lbs, now about 215lbs...

    I bought the loose gear one about 2 yrs ago and was not too thrilled...

    A few weeks ago I bought the tight fitting HEAT GEAR to wear under my other T-Shirts or work shirts....

    I LOVE 'UM... I never thought I'd like the tight ones since I'm not a skinny guy... But they feel really good...

    On that note... Once its time for bed it is a welcome feeling taking it off...

    Based on that, I am definitely reconsidering whether to purchase any.

    Not trying to be cruel here, but I had the same problem with odor, then I changed from a liquid shower soap to good ol' bar soap ZEST, no more odor problem. And to further gross you out, my shirts stunk so bad that my cats wanted to piss on my shirts if I left them on the floor. Since switching to the bar soap, no odor problems.

    Does anyone know if any company makes a microfiber tank top? Not a sleeveless but a full tank-top. I usually wear t-shirts with a tank-top undershirt and would like to keep it that way. If not I might experiment with making one from a Walmart clone. Thanks.
