Want to feel like you’re sporting knight’s armor out on the football field without being bogged down by excess weight? Under Armour’s new Gameday Armour technology provides the extra protection you need as an athlete who plays the game hard, without extra heft. The pads aren’t just protective; they’re also waterproof and quick-drying, allowing you to stay dry and cool for four quarters or more. (So bring on overtime!)
Gameday Armour comes in a 5-Pad Football Shirt ($75, available at Dick’s Sporting Goods) that protects your ribs, back and shoulders, and a 5-Pad Girdle ($75, also at Dick’s), which helps protect critical areas south of the border like your hips, thighs, and tailbone. Saddle up with both and you’ll be better insulated from big hits and little knocks alike out there on the gridiron.
