I've used Under Armor Heat gear for a while and am very happy with it. I use it under my vest in the summer to help keep cool.

How does the 5.11 Wick tight and loose crew t-shirts compare? Do they do a good job of keeping a user cool and do they hold up as well as Under Armor?

Also looking at the NIKE Pro gear, but it seems a little over priced even compared to the UA.

all of them are 100% polyester ,, most of the time. i know guys that use the target,walmart brand stuff and its just as good. your really paying for the name and maybe color!!
ive got stuff from target/walmart /alpine designs few others sides the cut of the shirt or thickness they all do the same job ive noticed.

Read my review of PolarMAX's XGO in my Red Rock thread.

I prefer the 5.11 tight fit shirts for use under armor. For me, the armor seems to shift less than with the UA shirts.

$.02 from a 5.11 dealer that owns and wears both.

I did not notice any of the tight gear on your website.
