We've never been excited about a face mask before, but these are truly unprecedented times. Under Armour has been working on this year's new problem: "how do I train safely, at my best, while being required to wear a mask?"
Based on Under Armour's enormously popular new design, they seem to have cracked it. The high-tech UA Sportsmask is officially in stock in both the UK and the US stores. Below, you can find out where you can get one, how to get one and, of course, what's so good about them.

Under Armour UA Sportsmask: What's so special about them?
Under Armour have created a seriously high-tech piece of kit, a world away from the flimsy disposable masks many of us are currently using. To start, the UA Sportsmask consists of a trio of layers: fabric, foam and custom Under Armour iso-chill.
The fabric is said to be light, containing air pockets to create the mask's structure. It's supposed to hold its shape, staying off your nose and mouth to allow you to better breathe through the mask.
The second layer consists of open-cell foam, which works two ways. The first is the breathability, allowing air flow to escape the mask. The second is the moisture-wicking technology, which keeps sweat and virus-carrying droplets out.
The final layer is Under Armour's iso-chill technology, used in its other workout gear. This stretchable material feels cool against the skin and has undergone an anti-microbial treatment. Stretchy earloops and sides completes the mask. More colours are expected to be available in the future.
The three layers work together to create a cooling, breathable, comfortable-fitting mask that keeps COVID-carrying droplets at bay and doesn't interfere with heavy breathing during workouts.
