Base Layer: Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Yes. Under Armour offers apparel that not only every hunter wants, but every hunter needs. Start with UA’s ColdGear apparel with new Capture Scent Technology. The UA base layers keep you warm and dry by wicking away sweat and help to destroy odor-causing bacteria with its new Scent Technology. Doesn’t earn a perfect 5 star rating because it’s a bit pricey.
