Stay warm this winter with Under Armour Cold Gear...
Under Armour’s unique ColdGear synthetic fabric is the ideal choice when the temperature drops, effectively dealing with both the external conditions and your body’s core temperature. Forget about the mid winter freeze, with Under Armour you can keep looking smart whilst feeling warm & protected!
The Under Armour base-layer technology is light and comfortable, yet still keeps you both dry and snug. The double-knit fabric construction, combined with warm fleece next to your skin, ensures that you are not cold when the temperature drops but also will not overheat. The Under Armour Second Skin compression fit can improve performance and minimise fatigue by keeping muscles warm during rest periods, increasing blood flow, warm-up speed and muscle efficiency.
The (water-loving) Hydro Phillic brushed polyester fabric forces water out towards the outer Water- Phobic layer, which promotes fast evaporation without the loss of valuable body heat. It prevents the formation of microbes and odour and has an effective four-way stretch to ensure ultimate manoeuvrability and comfort.
The specialist ColdGear fabric is another innovation from a company renowned as being the forefather for performance baselayer clothing. Launched in 1996 by Kevin Plank, a former American football player from the University of Maryland, the fabric was based on the idea of creating a superior t-shirt that would offer compression benefits and effectively deal with perspiration.
The idea was a garment that worked in harmony with the human body to enhance performance and regulate temperature — a concept that is still at the forefront of the company’s design. Today there are three complete ranges to cope with different weather conditions: HeatGear for hot weather; ColdGear for cold below 55 degrees F; and AllSeasonGear for the rest of the year.
There are ColdGear garments to suit all sports and activities, including a complete Under Armour Golf ColdGear range featuring jackets, tops and vests. There is no doubt that UA is famous for its base layers, but its ColdGear Golf collection does’t end there. There are mid-layers, waterproof jackets and golf trousers to ensure that neither you nor your performance will suffer when the weather takes a turn for the worst.

The latest Under Armour now online at Function18...
Under Armour has become an extremely popular brand amongst golfers worldwide.
Due to their popularity, Under Armour are now recognised as experts in temperature control technology. The company have developed their golf apparel to suit all weather conditions – hot or cold. With winter fast approaching, the full Under Armour Cold Gear autumn / winter range is now online at Function18.
This year, Under Armour introduce the new Cold Gear Infrared technology across a number of garments. The Infrared technology consists of a soft, thermo-conductive pattern thats applied to the inner layer of performance fabrics. The ceramic pattern is designed to retain a larger proportion of natural body heat produced and dissipate it around the body for a warmer thermal feel. This mechanism allows the fabrics to be lighter when required but still offers a higher degree of thermal protection. Under Armour claim it to be "the best insulation system ever created"
Worn by the likes of PGA Tour superstars Hunter Mahan and Ross Fisher, the Cold Gear range provides the ultimate protection in cold and wintery conditions but without sacrificing style – a must for any keen winter golfer!
The popular compression base layers are designed to increase the blood flow through to the muscles during performance, increasing muscle proficiency and decreasing the early onset of fatigue. Smart technology also means that this compression system wicks away moisture from the body, leaving you dry and comfortable out on the course, no matter what the conditions.
Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are set to go head to head
World number one McIlroy and 14-time major winner Woods, the world number two, have been drawn in the same group at the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final. It means the world's top two players will play each other at least once in the new and exciting £3.2m eight-man event.
Head-to-head matches will be fought out in a medal matchplay format, with the lowest strokeplay score over 18 holes winning a point.The winner of Group One will play the runner-up of Group Two, and vice versa, in Thursday's semi-finals with two players contesting a huge £935,000 first prize in Friday's final.
Oakley’s McIlroy and Nike’s Woods will not face each other until the final game on Wednesday, by which time they could already be through to the semi-finals."It's something I am looking forward to," said McIlroy. "Tiger has been a hero of mine growing up so to compete against him is a dream come true."This will be the first match we have had head-to-head and it's a match I would really like to win."
The 23-year-old Northern Irishman, who almost missed the start of his Ryder Cup singles match after a time mix-up at Medinah, added: "I haven't touched a club since the Ryder Cup so I am going to get to the course a little early to hit a few balls and see if it's still there. And I will make sure I am in the right time zone."
The World Golf Final is not deemed an official event on either the European or US PGA Tours.
Under Armour launch Coldblack
So how exactly does the Coldblack technology work?
Invented by Swiss material specialist Schoeller, the fabric is designed to reduce heat build-up and reflect the sun’s rays. This is accomplished through a special textile finish that reduces absorption of heat rays that normally occur in dark coloured fabrics, while dually reflecting back those harmful and damaging UV-rays.
Coldblack will be endorsed by US Tour star Hunter Mahon and is now available online for purchase at www.function18.com
