Freeze-Out

Anyone tried the freeze-out stuff from Bilt? I know the quality of their gear has been in question here a lot, but these are just undergarments to stay warm. Seems like it could be good stuff to have around as the weather gets cooler, could even be helpful off the bike.

Was wondering if anyone has first hand experience before I spend the money.

Buy Under Armor instead.
Better quality and warmer.

I have freeze out balaclava and gloves' liners.. and quality is good, warmer than I would think,
the only thing I did notice is the balaclava elastic band around the viewing area (eyes) kind of sometimes is pushed back by your helmet as you put it on, I guess is one of those faulty 1 size fits all, kinda thing, good gear for your $$$

You want cold weather thermals under your normal riding gear, theres no need for special motorcycle thermals.

Buy underarmor. I've used it on winter mountain hikes and its great for the 'cold' weather we get here. Better than the Chili's. I prefer the one with the turtle neck upper, works great with a neoprene baclava.

Get a marino wool balacava, nice and soft, warm even if wet and dosn't feel like a wet suit.

I have the freez-outs - pants, jacket and glove inserts.
I ride from League City (96) to Galveston (30 mins on average). Leaving the house, its cold (some weird draft till I get close to 45), but once I get on the frwy it will get a little warmer. I cruise 70-80mph.
I rode the other day when it was in the 40s, they did their job. Today...it was comfortable at times, but then I would get those cold drafts and it felt like the wind was cutting right through all my gear. I even had thermals on underneath. By the time I got to the island, I was upset on how cold I was (for buying "cold - gear" I expected to be warmer), my hands started to get stiff from the cold, but thank it is warmer on the island, plus I am riding slower. If you ride more than 30mins, depending on your tolerance / bike, I would consider something else.

I just bought a long sleeve shirt from CG and it really works. I rode yesterday, so it was a good test.

Thanks everyone for the input. I assumed under armour was better. I guess the decision I have to make is whether or not it's enough better to pay over twice as much for it. I was at the outlet yesterday, and that stuff is pricey. Anyone know somewhere that has it cheaper?

What did you buy, if you don't mind me asking?
