Stuff I Like – UA Highlight Delta

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Dudes like comfortable shoes too, and these are some of the most comfortable I’ve worn in awhile. While I don’t spend as much time in my feet as I used to, I do find myself attending at least one trade show per month. I began wearing them last Fall and these were awesome at SHOT Show.

Despite the mid height upper, the Highlight Delta is essentially a running shoe. The heelcup and lacing system lock my heel in place and the instep is plenty wide. However, the uppers are mesh, so I’ m not wearing these when it’s raining or if it’s sandy because it will just end up in the shoe. Having said that, they breathe very well on hot days.

The Stealth Great colorscheme is murdered out, with tone on tone UA logo, so these won’t stand out in a crowd.

-Breathable mesh fabric with seamless construction is both lightweight & durable
-Molded heel cup offers a form-fit that keeps the foot from sliding
-Ribbed ankle collar provides a snug, bootie-like fit with an extended cut & unparalleled support
-Soft foam inside ankle collar stays comfortable against inside of heel & ankle
-Lacing system features deeply cut eyestays built to move freely with the foot
-Two-piece Charged Cushioning® midsole pairs a soft, plush layer of foam on top of a layer of dense, harder foam for the ultimate blend of support & comfort
-Solid rubber outsole covers high impact zones for greater durability with less weight
-Deep flex grooves provide extra flexibility where you need it most
-Offset: 10 mm

UAS Men’s RLT Boot from Under Armour

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

I’m always on the lookout for new kit, even if it comes from the most unlikely sectors. UAS is a new line from Under Armour which is more luxury than athletic wear.

As I own a pair of UA Fat Tire boots and love them, the RLT immediately caught my eye. Although it’s quite unconventional looking, the Fat Tire sole offers both cushion and traction.

For some, the RLT may be a choice for a duty boot. It’s available in Black, as well as a Tan color which is called Partridge along with Dress Blue, although the toe seam detail may be an issue.

Stuff I Like – Under Armour’s Fish Hunter Cargo Shorts

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

I’m a big fan of Tigerstripe so when I found these at a Sportsman’s Warehouse during a recent trip to Bozeman, I picked them up.  

Made from a DWR treated, 30+ UFP, Salt and Chlorine resistant fabric, the shorts are very comfortable. In fact, I’m wearing them right now. There’s a little bit of mechanical stretch. They are board short length and feature cargo pockets on either thigh with snap closures as well as mesh-lined front slash pockets and a single rear pocket. Very comfy.

Fat Tire Shoe Coming Fall 15 from Under Armour

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

The Fat Tire is a new hiking shoe coming Fall 2015 from Under Armor.


Integrating the Boa closure system, the Fat Tire offers a custom fit at the twist of a dial along with rapid donning and doffing. It also features a GORE-TEX upper with a Cupron infused fabric liner as an antimicrobial. This sits atop a UA Charge mid-sole for cushioning but probably the most striking feature of the Fat Tire is the Michelin sole. The Wild Gripper outsole offers lugs at the bottom as well as up the edge of the sole to improve grip while scrambling up the trail. Coming in numerous colors including UA’s Ridge Reaper camo pattern.
