under armor (trying to keep warm while riding)

has anybody tried the Under Armour Metal Coldgear Mock Mens under their jackets to keep warm? cause my Komodo jacket has this really thin Vest Linen that doesn't really work well at keeping me warm, plus the jacket is perforated through out the arms and chest. OR is there a company that makes Linings for Jackets? any advice would help.

I've used a thin Columbia wind vest under my perfed jackets with good results.
Try The Sports Authority or REI.

I have found that a loose pullover jacket, that is absolutely windproof works gear over a mesh jacket. Mine is Columbia sportswear but anything that stops the wind, lets the mesh jacket and all that trapped air act like an insulator.
Works good down to pretty chilly then I have worn a ski jacket over my perfed leather jacket.

I've had the underarmor pants since last season, they work great. I just picked up the shirt today, I'll let you know how it works in about an hour or so.

I use my rain gear as an insulating/wind-blocking layer in a pinch. Works real well, and is meant for riding so it doesn't flap around like a poncho.

When I'm headed out and know it's going to be cold, I layer up - tight turtle neck, then long-sleeve shirt, then t-shirt. Long Johns (top and bottom) work well, but they can be a little irritating next to the skin so when I wear them I put them over a layer of generic UA (made by Danskin, sold at WalMart for 1/5 the price).

One day I'd like heated grips and heated gear, but that's a pipe dream.

something easy to do it you get caught out in the cold w/o gear, is to put a newspaper in the ft of your jacket, acts as great windbreaker.

The newspaper thing sounds like a pretty good idea, thanks.

Check out Academy, they sell something like "polar fleece" for something like $15 or $20. Works well but that's with a turtleneck and a leather Dainese Monza leather jacket which also has a insulated liner. For extra warmth I use the rain overcoat as it blocks ALL wind. I bought a fleece type balaclava from cyclegear but was a a pain to use because of my glasses, and made my helmet uncomfortably too tight.

Legs, polar fleece stuff, longjohns, jeans or warmup pants with Icon under armor, or leathers. Last year I was riding daily in the cold, and yes heated glove inserts do sound nice. One thing is for sure, you do remember what COLD really is.

I spent December through May of 05 with nothing but my bike(no car), and had a job that had me at work at 5:00. So, no matter how cold or wet, I was riding to work.
Academy has silk underwear(like long johns). Silk is the way to go. Its as sheer as under armor, works probably just as well as is only $20 for a top, $20 for the pants. These will keep you pretty warm under a jacket.
Cabelas also has some really nice, thin and warm undergarments.

Also, try a silk or synthetic balaclava mask under your helmet. Keep your ears and nose warm and uses your breath to keep your whole head warm. Super nice.

And lastly, get a pair of silk gloves. I know, i know, all this silk sounds girly and expensive, but its really pretty cheap compared to under armor and adds tons of heat without hardly any bulk. If you wear a pair of silk gloves under your normal rising gloves your hands will be happy.

yeah the bottom line is you need some long johns or under armour. something warm like a sweatshirt. and then something the wind cant break through like a leather jacket.
