      go ahead and burn a couple of holes in those high dollar shirts and you find out why most guys use old pocket T's.

        underarmour specifically states to keep their gear away from heat, fire, and open flames. there is a reason for this.


        this board sure has lost its edge.. geez.

            Nothing like being burned twice, and longer! Ah Jeff!

                The helmet has no UV protection (unless you wear it backwards) and that hard plastic thing is NOT a nose guard.....

                          I'd definitly wear a shirt over that stuff.


                          Here's some of what I found

                          Marines Ban Under Armour

                          Marines conducting operations outside forward operating bases and camps in Iraq can no longer wear synthetic athletic clothing containing polyester and nylon, Marine Corps commanders have ordered.

                          The ban on popular clothing from companies like Under Armour, CoolMax and Nike comes in the wake of concerns that a substantial burn risk is associated with wearing clothing made with these synthetic materials, officials said.

                          When exposed to extreme heat and flames, clothing containing some synthetic materials like polyester will melt and can fuse to the skin. This essentially creates a second skin and can lead to horrific, disfiguring burns, said Navy Capt. Lynn E. Welling, the 1st Marine Logistics Group head surgeon.

                          Whether on foot patrol or conducting a supply convoy while riding in an armored truck, everyone is at risk to such injuries while outside the wire.

                            10 years ago when I was working in a forge shop (steel not $) no synthetic fabrics were allowed in the shop due to the burn risk. In fact, all the hammer operators wore cotton long underwear year round to protect them from the red hot scale knocked off the metal they were forging.

                            I know when I weld it's cotton with no frayed edges for me.
