Under Armour has taken some gear down the road to spring practices at College Park to test out some new gear including cleats and a "no-grab" jersey.
Walker Jones of Under Armour explains that being just down the road from the Terps campus allows them to bring their latest and greatest gear to practice to see how it holds up in the real life lab.
This week they were testing out jerseys (we know what your thinking), cleats, and arm sleeves and, as with all their products that they test, Jones explained that they wanted to see how durable they were, how it fits, and if it provides a competitive advantage. There's no better place to do that than the field.
