Under Armour Storm Technology

How can such a young company overcome the sports market in such a short period of time? The answer mainly lies in the completely innovative approach, and the patented technologies they have developed. The featured technology that was utilized for manufacturing this pullover, is the proprietary Storm technology that has been proven to be extremely functional.

This technology is developed in three different levels of protection, intended to keep athletes dry, and protected from wind and cold in the harshest weather conditions. Storm 1 Technology, which is the featured technology of this Under Armour pullover, is intended for garments that are intended for lighter weather conditions, such as light wind or rain. It features a water-resistant finish that has the capacity of repelling water so that it rolls off the garment without preventing the air-flow. The garment, in this case, the pullover, is lightweight, very flexible, and provides four-range movement to allow golfers to produce perfect swings. It is more or less made for drizzles and cooler temperatures, but if you need something that will protect you from the wind and heavier rain than consider garments that feature Storm 2 or Storm 3 technologies.

The pieces of clothing that are made with the use of Storm 3 technology feature a water-resistant coating that has the capacity to repel water, but it is intended for heavier rain and sleet. Unlike Storm1, Storm2 technology delivers wind protection, and it is intended for colder temperatures to protect you from the cold air and heavier rain. Even though the coating is denser, it doesn’t prevent the flexibility nor the breathability of the material, so golfers can easily swing better without feeling tucked into too many pieces of clothing. Mind you though that it is still water-resistant, so eventually, it might let the water in, but the exposure to rain is longer and it is harder for the water to penetrate into the material.

Storm 3 technology delivers windproof garments, which differs from Storm1 and Storm 2 technologies. This technology is used for making garments that are needed for the coldest and the harshest weather conditions during the winter period of time. It completely protects you from very heavy rains, showers, snow, sleet, and strong winds.

Materials

Materials are important, they determine the overall characteristics of the garment, and they are mainly responsible for the level of protection that you'll get. However, it is never just the material since the technology that processes the material attributes additional features that deliver the desired performance. This Under Armour pullover is made from fleece that has an under layer for additional protection. We know that fleece is one of the lightest and softest materials that mimic the quality of the wool, but its weight is just a fraction of the wool's weight. It is recommended for colder weather conditions, and when one mentions fleece, you get the idea that it is a thick material that will make you feel warm.

However, this Under Armour pullover is neither thick nor does it give the impression of being wool-like. Thanks to the unique technology, this Heathered fleece is made by 100% polyester fibers that are made of similar color so that they deliver a muted shade effect. The micro thick fleece used for this pullover is flexible enough to allow golfers to produce full-blown swings while retaining its insulating and water-resistant properties.

The inner layer of the pullover is very soft, brushed and warm, and many reviewers claim that it retains its softness even after many washes. The quality of any fleece garment is seen precisely in this capability to keep soft and protective, which is one of the key characteristics of this pullover.

Look

When it comes to the looks of the Under Armour Storm Pullover, everyone agrees that it has a very refined and elegant note that makes it perfect for versatile settings, and can be worn on different occasions. It speaks class and style with sophisticated elegance and sports appeal. The ¼ zipper that goes up to the ribbed collar additional emphasizes its minimalistic sporty elegance. The Under Armour logo is unobtrusively placed on the left chest area as if trying to hide behind obviously stylish pullover. The Heathered pattern creates the effect of color transgression while keeping the same color fibers with different shades into one unity. The cuffs and the hem are ribbed too, a perfect solution for creating a neat and at the same time, protective design.

Versatility

When buying clothes, we usually buy them for a very specific setting or purpose, and often keep to it. However, we can all agree that we love the possibility to extend the use of our golf clothes to more than just golf courses. Indeed, golf is definitely one of the most elegant sports out there that speaks fashion and style, and many golf apparel companies pay special attention to the design of their golf clothes as their opportunity to promote themselves on and off the course.

This is understandable as many of the polo shirts, jackets, pullovers, and pants are frequently worn outside the course, from the office setting to a night out perfectly fitting in. So, if you just consider the use of this Under Armour pullover, you instantly realize that it can be worn almost elsewhere, and you can still look elegant and trendy at the same time.

In addition to the classy look, the way it is made gives it several functions. The microfleece material gives it a sweater-like feel, so any time you feel like wearing a sweater, the UA Sweater Fleece Golf Pullover can just fit in. However, it is not the sole function, since this fleece pullover is not just an ordinary pullover. Thanks to the Storm 1 technology that we have discussed above, you can use it as a jacket that keeps the light rain off, without getting easily soaked. Just, make sure you don’t confuse it with water-proof, as this pullover will eventually get soaked if exposed to water for a long time or under heavy rain. Finally, the super stylish looks it has will provide you with the opportunity to stick to it when going out, when heading to your office, or when you’re traveling. All in all, it is one of the most versatile pullovers that fits in every setting and occasion.

Regarding its length, it does run a bit longer, and the length of the sleeves is a bit longer too compared to the standardized measurements of similar models.

Performance

So, why is this pullover particularly suitable for golfers since it has such a versatile use? Every golfer knows that to be able to produce a full-blown swing, you need clothes that can be flexible enough for unhindered movement.
