Base Layer Preferences

What's your preference for base layers under leather? Short sleeves and shorts? Long sleeves/long pants? I'm going to pick up some stuff this week and am curious about what works best.

I guess I wasn't clear enough in my post. I'm going to pick up some UA, Heat Out, or similar. I'm more curious about the lengths that people are using.

I would get full length bottoms or at least ones that go past the knee's my leathers rub my knees raw. As for the shirt, just a t-shirt would be fine. Assuming you're getting the UA.

I use full UA heat out pants and long sleeve shirt, its easier to slip in and out of the leathers this way when ur sweaty.

You can't go wrong with UA. As far as shorts and pants go, it depends on what is more comfortable with you. I rather not wear shorts that wick sweat away and have my legs sweating during the summer so I tend to go with the pants; however, if it was about a month ago when we got 70 degree weather, I wear the shorts instead. It all boils down to your preference. I would recommend trying both and see what you like better.
