Just got on with an ambulance company, looks like I'll be spending the summer running BLS calls on 12-hour shifts.

My problem is that I'm a fat bastard. I'm working on it, and making progress, but I don't want to be a sweathog on the rig if I can help it. Nobody likes a big smelly fat guy.

Who can recommend a good undershirt to wear beneath my uniform rig to help with the sweating? Is Underarmor good? Is there something better? Any help is appreciated.

Underarmour Heatgear is the way to go. And if the company requires a V-neck shirt under the uniform, Underarmour sells those as well. Good luck.

:cool:

Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out.

And thankfully, we don't require v-necks, because I have about as much body hair as Ron Jeremy and in a v-neck I look like a Hungarian pimp from 1970. The only thing missing is the gold medallion.

You might wanna purchase a few extra uniform shirts and extra undershirts as a possible alternative. A quick change between runs will make you look and feel better.

+1 on that.

:rofl: That's a problem? I'm all self-conscious now! :supergrin:

When I worked EMS about 10 years ago I was 5'10" and 315 pounds. Multiple uniforms (or at least under/t-shirts to change) and/or UnderArmor are my recommendations.

Hose off a couple times a week too. That helps. :tongueout:

+1 for the Under Armor Heat gear! Just started wearing them recently myself. They are a bit on the costly side, but they do work nice. Bryan
