Why Athletes Dominate in Under Armour Team Uniforms and Apparel

Posted by Brooke Tomasetti on Tue, Oct 13, 2015 @ 07:00 AM

Under Armour consistently churns out new, impressive athletic apparel and uniforms.

More recently, Under Armour's ArmourGrid technology, used to create the new football jerseys for teams such as Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Maryland, and Auburn, is touted to be 'ungrabbable.' This 'toughest jersey ever made' is created with strong, super-durable fabric that has 4-way stretch in the side sections, sleeves, and shoulders. The material is designed to keep players cool, comfortable, and mobile.
