Last month, I was sent to New York to conduct a special football training for some middle-school kids in the Bronx. It took me only a few hours for the whole preparation and the training itself, so I decided to take a walk around the city and visit a few sports stores afterward.
I was expecting to have a lazy walk with window-shopping, and actually, it had been like this until I found a small local football shop that was selling the football gear of my favorite brand. What’s my favorite brand you ask? It’s Under Armour. I didn’t count the time I had spent in the shop, but eventually, I ended with the whole pile of great football gear.
My Under Armour Football Gear Collection
And this is what I’ve bought and what I think about the products after using them for a while:
– UA Spotlight Men’s Football Gloves appeared to be very comfortable. They reduce twisting of the fingers and provide decent support for the hand. Also, they are seamless and made of Heat Gear fabric, so my hands remain dry during the game. I have been using them for three weeks so far, and feel very happy with this purchase. I made this decision by reading the reviews at shocpro.com. Hope, they will stay in such a good condition for a while.
– UA Gameday Armour Arm Sleeves also seem to be a very good choice. They are very light and comfortable. Since the fabric absorbs sweat I feel completely dry during the game. A few days ago I was hit while practicing and fell down on my elbow. Thanks to the armor sleeve my elbow didn’t get any particular damage, so it really gives decent protection and makes you feel more secure about your health and life on the field.
– UA Home & Away Chin Pad Pack was on sale, so I’ve bought it only for $6.74, which is half of the regular price. The chin pad is very soft, constructed in stretch neoprene and Heat Gear fabric. It gives extra protection and comfort for my chin, so I like using it both for the training and the games.
– UA Armour Fuse Chin Strap was the last item I’ve bought that day. Even though I have another Under Armour chin strap, but I could not resist to a very generous offer (I bought it only for $5 instead of $20!). I haven’t used this one yet, but it seems to be very strong and convenient. The internal foam pad is removable and washable, which is very important to me, as I like keeping my things clean.
I hope my review can help other people to choose their football gear. Under Armour is not the only sports brand I like, but when it comes to the football protection, I prefer to buy the products of trusted and well-known companies.
