It is starting to get hot here and I am thinking about wearing an Under Armour shirt to stay cool. Have any of you used UA?

I would answer your question with my own question. Does under armor look professional?

I'm not sure what your situation is, how old you are, etc. but to be professional you must present yourself in a professional manner. I'm located in Texas and the humidity today was unbelievable, which only added on to the actual temperature. And besides all of that, I know I wouldn't look too good in skin-tight under armor so I, personally, would stay away from it for both reasons mentioned above. You can find various types of t-shirts that just have that "certain" type of material that you can wear during the summer and not get as hot. Stick with the obvious (light colors) and you should be fine.

You do what you want. I'm sure you'll use good judgment. Good luck to you in your future endeavors.

go shirtless, the housewives love it! Unless you have a beer belly, than wear a 2xL shirt...

Just kidding...

I am not too high on the importance of a uniform, I believe your final product will speak volumes and be the number one determining factor as to whether or not you will continue in this biz. I know there will be dozens of my fellow owners come crawling out from under their respective rocks with the above sentence but most (MOST) people don't care about uniforms. They want a good job, they want good value (not a cheap job!).

UA would be good, are you going to wear that as your only layer or as a under shirt to a tee shirt to keep you from gettting to hot?

I have both hot and cold under armour. The cold gear works great! I am not a big fan of the hot gear but if you get it get a light color. UA also makes a loose gear which would probably be a better choice and Im sure you could special order to get your name put one it. this way you still look professional

I wear them under my bullet proof vest. Helps keep you a little cooler by pulling moisture away. They can get kind of expensive for the shirts. You also have to consider how professional you'll look. Most lawn guys around here have small beer bellies would'nt look good. When I mow, I usually wear one under my co. shirt. Hope this helps.

I bought 2 of the loose fitting last week to try. I have had cancer and my doctor wants me to keep my arms covered as much as possible. So I went with the long sleeve--LOVE them! I will be buying some more this week. And yes they are pricey. I'm going to have my local imprinter to put my company name and logo on them--they will look professional.

I wear the light blue hot gear long sleeved. Whether is 60 or 90 degrees all day. Love them also. No matter what its hot out but it seems to be better than any shirt ive ever worn.

Boy you must cut the lawns in the bad side of town to need a bulletproof vest. lol Actually I have the same plan of working in law enforcement and lawn service work on the side.

I wear an U/A type shirt as a base layer and then wear a long-sleeve cotton company shirt over it.

You probably already know this.... U/A is nothing more than expensive polyester, look at the the label. You can buy 100% polyester t-shirts at retail stores for 1/4 the cost of U/A.
