Winter is inching closer, and for guys who spend time outside, that means it’s time to break out the heavy jackets, wool socks, and outdoor boots. But even with the best outer layers, the biggest problem is one that lies beneath—sweat. One of the most common problems guys face when trying to bundle up is sweating underneath all those layers, which can actually make you colder if the fabric doesn’t dry quickly. Thankfully, one of the most popular sporting apparel brands makes a shirt specifically designed to combat this, and it’s on sale right now.
The Under Armour Men’s Cold Gear Fitted Crew is on sale at Amazon for as low as $31—up to 43% off the original price of $55. While the price of the black shirt offers the best value, other colors are also discounted to various degrees. Regardless, this long-sleeve base layer has earned an average of 4.8 stars after over 600 ratings with the vast majority giving it a perfect five stars.

Under Armour’s ColdGear Fitted Crew is made from a dual-layer polyester and elastane knit fabric that allows it to shield vital organs from cold, expel excess sweat, and stretch in every direction. It’s lightweight and doesn’t add to the bulk of cold weather or athletic apparel. But the real kicker here is how the shirt is sewn: Each seam has been specifically placed away from high-touch areas that could cause rubbing and, ultimately, chafing because there’s nothing worse than being cold and uncomfortable.
The concept behind Under Armour’s ColdGear was game-changing. It gave guys an option for a base layer to wear in cold weather that would keep them warm and dry, wicking away the sweat that inevitably occurs while warming the body without restricting their motion. It’s been a favorite among football and soccer players as well as their spectating families during the fall sports season. It’s also a favorite for guys who have to shovel in the winter, guys who work outside, and anybody who enjoys cold-weather hobbies.
This ColdGear collection has done so well for Under Armour that it’s offered in a mock-neck shirt to better protect the neck, men’s leggings that fit under any type of pants, and multiple types of compression shirts for a closer-to-the-body fit.

Customers have gone wild for these temperature-regulating layers, citing their non-restrictiveness, heat retention, and versatility. One shopper went as far as describing how well-rounded these shirts are with the “p” word. “This is absolutely one of my favorite garments. It’s extremely comfortable and warm but not hot. It’s sleek, soft, stylish. Perfect for chilly or mild cold weather, or when you simply want to ‘bundle up.’ Perfect fit. Perfect, perfect, perfect,” they said.
One shopper even relied on it to keep warm in Alaska. “Wore this as a base layer for our trip to Fairbanks Alaska,” they said. “We did rent outerwear rated to 20 below but we were comfortable at 24 below with this as the base layer with a sweatshirt under the rented gear. It also works well in my unheated shop at 20 above with only a sweatshirt over it.”
Some customers find this ColdGear shirt so comfortable they fall asleep wearing it, which is fine except it seems to affect their dreams. “I fell asleep on the couch with it on and dreamt I was a baby kangaroo in its mother’s pouch hopping through the great plains of Australia. The sights were as beautiful as the feeling of wearing this garment,” one customer said, unnecessarily.
Frigid temps are just on the horizon, and the worst thing you could do is get caught without good layers. At almost 50% off at Amazon, now is the time to grab an Under Armour ColdGear shirt. These are virtually never this affordable in brick-and-mortar stores, so take advantage of this great deal while it’s still active.
