Armour's global headquarters are located in Baltimore,
Under Armour was founded in 1996 by Kevin Plank, a then 23-year-old
former special teams captain of the University of Maryland football team.
As a fullback at the University of Maryland, Plank got tired of having to
change out of the sweat-soaked T-shirts worn under his jersey; however, he
noticed that his compression shorts worn during practice stayed dry. This
inspired him to make a T-shirt using moisture-wicking synthetic fabric.
Plank soon perfected the design creating a new T-shirt built from
microfibers that wicked moisture and kept athletes cool, dry, and light.
Under Armour received its first big break in 1999 when Warner Brothers
contacted Under Armour to outfit two of its feature films, Oliver Stone's
Any Given Sunday and The Replacements.
Products manufactured by Under Armour include athletic shoes, t-shirts,
jackets, hoodies, pants, leggings, shorts and accessories such as bags,
gloves, caps and protective gear.Under Armour also produces American

plain, old-school cotton hoodies. Built to perform, UA men's hoodies &
sweatshirts are lightweight & quick-drying—without sacrificing warmth.
