My third try with the Under Armour shirts was to get a size medium of the UA Tech shirt. I got size medium because I was under the impression that this was a compression shirt, but it turned out it was a regular loose fit shirt.

So the size medium was a little too big. It will be fine as a regular workout shirt, but too big for a base layer when I’m cycling.

What did I do? Immediately ordered another one in size small! That’s how much I liked it! (Being on sale for $14.99 also factored into my decision!)

Here’s the sales pitch for the UA Tech line:

  • “Feels like cotton – performs like Under Armour”
  • “Performance stretch for freedom of movement.”
  • “Microfiber polyester for moisture management.”
  • “Flat seams for durability and comfort.”
  • “Signature Moisture Transport System to keep you dry.”

From what I’ve seen with my shirt, it lives up to the hype.

The comfort and fit are the best I’ve ever had from any sort of athletic top. The material is very soft and comfortable – you could work out in it, sleep in it, whatever.

Also, with the raglan sleeves and flat seams, the shirt doesn’t bind your movement at all. You don’t feel any of the seams or tight spots or anything.

The fit is fairly loose, like a regular t-shirt – just like the other loose fit Under Armour shirt I got. So both of my UA Tech shirts (size small and medium) will be alright for training, but not really suitable as undershirts.

The color I got is awesome as well – green. It’s pretty bright but not ugly.

I haven’t been too rough with this shirt, but so far, durability seems good. For being so soft and light, you’d think durability would be on the low side.

My final verdict is…

I highly recommend the UA Tech t-shirts for general workout apparel. They feel great, fit great, the fabric is super comfortable, and really, the shirt is just plain awesome.

Go with Steel Stretch for your compression shirts, but grab a UA Tech shirt from Under Armour for a comfortable workout shirt with a loose fit (for those days you don’t want to show off your exact physique.)
