    I'm talking about the kind of sportswear usually worn by athletes for cold weather situations

    Under Armour, Nike, Hell even Uniqlo makes stuff similar to it. i just want advice for those who have used some form of the technology and how warm it keeps you

    i work in an ice box and constantly go from cold to freezing and what i find to work best is thermals plus a few layers.

    Cold gear by UA. I dont know if it works that well but a lot of people I know use it.

    I wonder how effective the Uniqlo heat stuff is...

    I use the Starter base layer stuff from Wally World. Had mine for over 3yrs and haven't had any problems. Kept me warm for IM football, paintball, work w/ slacks on, etc. AND it's less than $20 a piece
