Heat out gear

Anyone tried this out before. I always see the shirts and pants in the cycle gear catalog I get every month. As hot as it's been lately I'm curious to see if they actually work. for 19.99 I might just go ahead and buy one of the shirts and see if it works.

I got the long britches and short sleeve .

Only worn them a couple of times, but they seem to work.

How long they last is still up for grabs.
For $30 a set, it is worth a try

I've got the Heat Out long sleeves and they work well. I bring them to work and put them on on the way home. I got the helmet liner too, but I think it actually made it worse. I believe it only works when it is worn over bare skin, so maybe it'll work better if I had no hair on top. Also, I get worse helmet hair wearing the liner, so I don't bother with it anymore.

I handwash mine with woolite. I doubt it'll last too long if I toss it in with regular laundry.

Will look up the Chapion stuff at Academy Bevo mentioned.

I have 3 sets of heat out... long sleeve and long pants...
I wear them under my leathers...I first had a one piece A* suit ($100) but hated having to go pee in them...
got the two piece heat out and notice right away they were a velcro magnet, everytime I put stuff on something would stick to the heat out... after a couple of washings that stopped... I wore the heat out to several trackdays and several TMGP race weekends.. they worked well enough I went and bought two more sets.
some of the guys who bought them and wore them for trackdays and cmra events did not like them.. so they do get mixed reviews.

93F is the magic number. It was 95F when I left work yesterday and while it wasn't unbearably hot, it was definitely uncomfortable - even with mesh jacket over Heat Out. Then it dropped to 93F when I exited 59. Right away, the breeze felt cool and my comfort level went up several notches.

This explains it very well: http://www.ironbutt.com/ibmagazine/i..._62-66_Hot.pdf

Maybe because I'm riding the Harley but it is not that hot yet to me, I'm still wearing the same stuff from winter. Have not pulled out summer gear yet But it's about that time when I see 95.

I got a bunch of the shirts and the helmet one. The helmet cap sucks donkey .


The shirts I love them for the price! I wear them to work all day (shop doesn't have ac) actually wearing one right now.

I found others that are about the same price but not compression shirts like the heat out gear at ross/marshalls. Avia I think is the brand, feels real nice and cheaper but they come in hideous colors. The addidas brand is cheap there too.

I know a few that have them.....they LOVE them.

a lil bit of water, a couple of frozen bottles of water and they are good for about 300 miles.

Not too sure on the backpack model.
