    Base layers look close at sierra trading post.They have merino wool all the time by RED Ram and Smartwool,,prices can't be beat.Also watch Camofire.com.I bought all my stuff from those 2 spots over a years time before my last trip.

    I love the base layers and socks, beanies are ok. I think you can do better for outer layers, never tried the boots, but a buddy has some warm weather ones that he likes a lot. I work outside all winter, so between work and hunting I pretty much live in the base layers.

    I really like the cold gear base layers for certain applications, namely ones that don't require much movement, as you will sweat a little in them. The heat gear compression shirt is really nice for seriously hot weather, I think it does an awesome job of keeping me very cool.

    Other than that, I'm not overly impressed with their gear.

    I like them a lot or similar type products. Only have one Under Armour brand. Wife goes to the thrift store and bring the stuff home. It really helps keep you warm. I have started wearing it to work when it's extra cold. The fact that it wicks away and drys quickly is a big bonus as I tend to be a sweat hog when it's warm. In warm weather I use the boxer briefs so it's not so clammy when I stop sweating. She got me a Merino wool under shirt, at the thrift store, and it was excellent too. She has a green light on any others she finds. I don't care for the tight fitting, skin tight, UA shirts. I find them uncomfortable, plus they accentuates my spare tire. Not a fashion item for me, but practicality as they work. Love em. Will never go back to cotton.

    I like the lighter cold-weather base layers from UA. They dry fairly quickly When I move a bit and get sweaty. I have a pair of heavier long-john base-layers, and only find them ok. Never tried anything else (except a cap I found in a clearnce bin, which I like). I think its too pricey and would only buy it on sale, but it doesn't go on sale much. Last few summers, Gander has been clearancing a little bit in July.

    I think the UA stuff is a hype deal it is heavy and I think there is much more effective outerwear out there...for pretty much same price you can pick up kuiu Sitka or kryptic... That's where my money would go personally
