Hi Hybrid,

I have tried both brands but it was for ultimate frisbee. You can order online for Under Armour and I used to do that with a couple of people. Please do order the "Heat Gear" which is meant for use in tropical countries like ours.

As for Skins, the material, skins is much thinner and more breathable as compare to Under Armour. Maybe its a salespitch/placebo effect but me and my teammates reckon that though Skins don't last as long, they seem to help us recover quickly. To give an idea, we played competitions over the weekend (frisbee is quite a shag sport) and wearing Skins really helped.

Noticed your location is in Manila. You there most of the time?

Many many thanks for your input.

I boought an Under Armour compression shirt when I went to Korea with my wife two weeks ago. Tested it last sunday and it was okay.

Haven't bought a Skins but saw it when I played with Tituman last year I think.

I think compression shirts are cheaper in Korea than in Singapore.

Lastly, yes i am from Manila, Philippines

a fellow "Hua Chiao" too

Hi there. I have Skins, Under Armour and Mizuno. Of the three, I like the Skins the best. This is becos it has the best compression n is more breatheable than the 2. On the downside, it usually last abt 1 years if u use it once every week. It also costs more than the Under Armour n Mizuno
The Under Armour is of thicker material and less breatheable n the compression is less than the Skins, but comparable to the Mizuno. In terms of costs, it is the cheapest of the 3. Not sure abt durability becos I don't use it enuff to tell.
The Mizuno is somewat between the Skins n Under Armour in terms of costs - abt s$ 70 frm Golf House when on offer.
The ones frm Korea r cheap compared to the Skins, Under Armour and Mizuno, but there is very little compression in it. I ordered one frm ebay and had it returned becos I don't think u can classify tat as compression wear.
My 2 cents worth. Hope that helps. Cheers/Loy

Second what loy said. Anyway think i saw somewhere on the forum that there is going to be a shop at Raffles that carries underarmour.

Hybrid I head up to Manila once in a while for work. Maybe can think of bringing up the set next time. Cheers!
