Under Armour was an early player on the moisture-wicking activewear scene with their legendary Heat Gear, which keeps you cool and dry, even in the Singapore heat. We’re big fans of their leggings and sports bras – particularly in the new Vanish collection, which is super-silky, stretchy, and dries faster than ever without absorbing sweat. You can usually score some pretty sweet deals at their outlet, too.
