You’ve been asking about it, and now it’s finally here: the Under Armour (UA) Women’s ¼ Zip Job Shirt. A comfortable combination of practicality and style, it is the first women’s-specific job shirt of its kind. Comprised of UA’s Charged Cotton®, its flattering, form-fitting cut and Princess seams create a slimmer, more streamlined silhouette than job shirts that were designed specifically for men.
To ensure the job shirt meets all your expectations, we sat down with Volunteer Firefighter, EMT, and TheFireStore employee Amanda G. to get her expert opinion.
Q: As a Volunteer Firefighter / EMT, what are some of the major perks of the job shirt?
AG: “I’ve been wearing this job shirt for about three weeks now, and I love it! You get to look like a girl without losing any of the functionality of what the guys wear. It easily tucks into bunker coats well and offers many useful features, like extra side-stow pockets that allow ample room for safely storing job-related equipment. The job shirt’s left-arm pocket offers convenient storage of pens and pencils, and a radio clip on the shoulder allows for easy, quick access. Side radio pockets can be used to house them when not in use, and microphones can be strapped to microphone holders.”
Q: What other uses does the job shirt have?
AG: “It does not have to be station-specific and can be worn casually, too. It’s designed to be worn in any weather conditions. The job shirt’s interior traps heat, so you can keep warm without the bulk. That same lightweight material also improves mobility, so I still have a full range of motion.”
Q: Would you recommend this job shirt to other female firefighters?
AG: “I would highly recommend it to any female in the emergency services field. I wear it because it fits perfectly and it functions in all capacities that I need it to. Additionally, I can wear it casually or I can wear it formally. So, it is incredibly versatile, modern-looking, and, best of all – comfortable!”
