KNOW YOUR TECH breaks down the scientific technology used in your favorite sneakers and activewear. Let’s demystify your next purchase: today’s technology is Under Armour HeatGear. UA HeatGear is a lightweight material which helps to keep athletes cool and dry in hot weather and conditions.

What is it? A fabric utilized by Under Armour in a variety of apparel, footwear, and gear. Ideal for wear in hot conditions (recommended for 75°F and up), Heat Gear is a great choice for athletes looking to stay fit in the summer weather. The moisture-wicking material keeps athletes cool and dry, whether you're on a sweltering outdoor run or grinding away in the gym.

How does it work? The featherweight fabric utilizes moisture transportation, which wicks sweat away from the wearer's body and filters it through the material, where it is then evaporated. HeatGear is also constructed to be highly breathable and quick drying, helping athletes stay as comfortable as possible in otherwise unbearable conditions.

Bottom line: Whether you're seeking compression training gear or comfortable game-day apparel, HeatGear is your solution for comfortable spring and summer fitness.
