Wearing a mask is, pretty much, the normal thing to do these days. Problem is, having a mask on can make it difficult to properly function when you’re engaged in high-volume activity, like your regular workouts. If you want to make the most of your workouts through the rest of the cold season, you might want to check out the Under Armour ColdGear Sportsmask Mock Long Sleeve, which reinforces the outfit’s winter workout garment with a built-in mask that’s designed to be comfortably worn even in the middle of intense training.
To the unfamiliar, Under Armour released one of the more popular sports-oriented masks out there, which allows you to do your part in keeping that pesky virus at bay while being able to train without any added difficulty. Whether you’re running, cycling, or towing a car by hand through the parking lot like a superhero straight out of a comic book, that mask lets you do any workout with a mask without any discomfort or constraints on your breathing. Well… they took that mask and built it right into a long-sleeve training shirt, so you can always have your mask on standby.
The Under Armour ColdGear Sportsmask Mock Long Sleeve is made from the outfit’s ColdGear fabric, a dual-layer blend of polyester and elastane that’s characterized by a high level of warmth, a brushed gentle interior, and a fast-drying external shell. Because of the elastane blend, it boasts four-way stretch that moves comfortably in any direction, while the fabric’s sweat-wicking characteristics will keep you dry inside even through the most grueling training. It also boasts anti-odor qualities that should prevent it from stinking like your socks after a long day of hiking.
It has a streamlined fit that’s meant to be neither too tight nor too loose. Given that this thing is sized for fit individuals, though, you might want to go one size up if you’re still in the process of trying to lose some of that fat you gained during the lockdown period.
Of course, what makes the Under Armour ColdGear Sportsmask Mock Long Sleeve unique is the integration of a functional sports mask that you can use to cover up your nose and mouth, so you don’t have to spend your training session feeling like a douche just spreading whatever’s in your system all over the place. That mask, by the way, has a water-resistant outer layer made from 100 percent polyester, an insert made from polyurethane, and an interior lining of the mask cut in the outfit’s Iso-Chill fabric, so it feels cool against your skin.
According to the outfit, the mask stays off your mouth, wicks sweat, and allows normal breathing, while making it hard for moisture and droplets to come through. The mask, by the way, also comes with stretch loops that should fit most any size and shape of a person’s face, while a bendable nose bridge makes it easy to secure it across your face.
The Under Armour ColdGear Sportsmask Mock Long Sleeve is available now, priced at $80.
