New from Under Armour: Tactical Base Layer System (Underwear)

Press release: “The UA Tactical team—” Wait. Under Armor has a SWAT team? I know the cops have militarized like Communist China but when did underwear manufacturers tool-up (so to speak)? “[UA] understands that situations can change from one extreme to the next.” One minute you’re baking, the next you’re serving croissants. I mean freezing. Sorry.  So, “Designed specifically for the tactical professional, UA’s new Tactical Base Crew and Pant system incorporates the proven ColdGear® moisture transport system with a fitted design that’s contoured to the body for cool weather comfort and protection without the restriction of compression garments.” That sounds distinctly Edwardian in a nudge-nudge, wink-wink sort of way. Or do UA mean post-surgery garments? Apparently not. The UA TBC and P are perfect for . . .

the patrol officer or convoy security operator. Under Armour Base 3 fabric keeps vital areas warm while strategically placed Base 1 panels mitigate high-heat zones. UA’s new Tactical Base Crew and Pant will keep you dry, warm and energized through any level of activity.

How does a base layer system (a.k.a., underwear) keep you energized? Actually, strike that. I don’t want to know. Or do I?

Anyway, despite the fact that UA’s new base layer system was specifically designed for beat cops (so to speak) and convoy security officers, civilians can buy them. In fact, they can buy thousands of them. Clearly, this is a tragedy in the making. Something must be done!

So we contacted UA for some test and evaluation BVDs. Watch this space.

    Alert Mikeb! Tactical underwear available to non-military. Next, there will be no background check required. Shame on anyone who stands by and allows this to go unchecked. Tactical underwear should be in the hands of our soldiers–not fugitives, crooks and civilians.

      How about hunters? Or maybe I qualify, I’m getting one to wear at work. I have a retail jewelry store which is on of the most dangerous occupations outside of security and law enforcement. I am neither a fugitive nor crook.
      But in your most wise opinion I do not deserve any protection. If you feel that all faith should be put in the government move to Chicago. They will tell you everything you need to know and believe.

    Sorry Robert, I’d rather see an article on the Panzerhaubitze 2000 than underwear on a gun blog. While the latest German self-propelled gun is a bit of a reach for the interests of many readers here; it is a gun.

    This post is useless without buxom models in said armor underwear.

    Ahhhh…. but the 64 cent question is will this be legal to own in NJ, MA, CA? Will permits be required? Background checks, etc? (LOL)

      They will only be legal in CA if they have buttons.

        In NY only if concealed and only while to and from the range.
