Can we talk about UA's new $100 pajamas, please?

I'd like to have a discussion about Under Armour's new "Active Recovery Sleepwear" which uses "infrared technology" to "helps your body recover faster, promote better sleep, reduce inflammation & regulate cell metabolism".

https://www.underarmour.com/en-us/womens/tb-12-recovery-sleepwear/g/3c39q?iid=hero

At the hefty price of a hundred bucks per piece (just tops or just bottoms) i'm scratching my head on how this technology is supposed to work, why it's so dang expensive if it doesn't, and what this means for further garments using this technology.

Discuss. Share thoughts. Would you buy them?


p.s. i hope this isn't an issue since MFP is now owned and operated by UA, but i gotta call it like it is.

    Um, I definitely would not buy them, i'm pretty sure I have almost the exact same pair of pants from target $6.99.

    I cant imagine anyone spending that much money on a pair of pajamas that are IMO not even cute.

    IF this technology actually works, I'm curious as to how it works in shorts and tank top form...I feel like for full body "recovery", you'd need a onesie (who knows how much it would cost!). I'll stick with my Soffee shorts and Walmart tank tops.

    I would be in for a magic recovery onesie. :D

    I'm generally too cheap to buy regular UA though, let alone this.
    I'm glad I saw this thread actually, because I had a pop up about an article on this yesterday, but no link to the product and nothing about it being UA (I should have assumed though). I was like cool but what is it..?!
    I remain skeptical. And I think it would be hot.

    Is this in regards to the 'article' labeled 'Sleep like an Athlete for a month'?! Laughable. This is an advertisement, NOT an article. Scroll down past the article and read the comments - pretty funny.

    True, "article" really isn't the right word lol.
    But I didn't see ANYTHING about what it was/where to get it. Pretty poor advertisement.

    Looks like woo, but it's way cheaper than a good set of PJS so whatever.

    I looked this stuff up. TB12 technology seems to mean nothing more concrete than that Tom Brady put his name on it. "Far Infared" reflecting ceramics woven into cloth are a real thing, but there has been a single study, not replicated, which found it might potentially do something for muscle soreness, based on observations of amphibian tissue. Basically all it is, is heat. It's pretty silly but if you worship at the altar of Tom Brady, it could be worth it to say he endorses your high-tech pjs.

    In case anyone is interested, here's the link: https://www.underarmour.com/en-us/womens/tb-12-recovery-sleepwear/g/3c39q?iid=hero You'd have to hold a gun to my head to make me buy these....LOL

    I see in that ad Tom Brady and Misty Copeland.

    I'll only buy that if it actually comes with Misty as part of a package deal.

    Yeah, if the PJs guarantee I'll either a) wake up next to Tom Brady, or b) wake up looking like Giselle, then I'll consider them.

    UA=Overrated essentially though most brands have become ultra expensive. I went to Nike the other day, and the price for running shorts was $40, and the shorts were on sale

    There's a similar technology being sold in sheets and mattresses. Similar sales pitch. Since it seems completely implausible to me, I'd have to see a properly executed study done that showed positive improvement.

    Don't think I'll hold my breath.

    Not wasting my money on that. I have better things to do, like pay my bills and actually eat.

    There's a similar blanket - I saw it 2 days ago on Kickstarter. Would be neat if it actually worked, but... $$
