Learned a very important lesson today about suits

They are hard getting out of. Just got a nice used suit which fits snug, but took like 15 minutes of me flopping around to get it off... didn't help of course that no one was home to help me get out of it. Does wearing a long sleeve under armor shirt help?

UNDER ARMOUR!!!!! i can't stress that enough.

no matter the temp is outside....i'll always have the under armour long sleeve and long pants on.

make sure you don't get the loose fitting under armour, get the one that sticks to you like white on rice. it makes getting in and out of the suit a piece of cake. the under armour also breathes VERY VERY well. you won't get hot under the suit.

Did you get them big enough for a back protector??

Also I think UA is overpriced take a look at T3K. I've got both and they are real close to each other and super cheap from ebay. http://search-desc.ebay.com/search/s...&frpp=50&fts=2




.............. also if you need some help I'm right down the road from you big boy.

And yes, the I have a full length back protector with the suit, to not have one would be crazy.

So, I'll be heading out to Sports Authority and look for a set of UA gear and give it another try.... maybe baby powder would help too... would keep me dry and smelling nice.

Just wait until you are real hot, real sweaty, real tired and trying to get it off.
Panic and claustrophobia can set in

UA FTW. Make sure to get the long bottoms, it is way easier. I don't ride without them.

AGreed, +1 and all that. House of Pain is right on the money on this post. I need to get the bottoms next. Been using the tight long sleeve for a while now.

Okay, so which UA shirt to get? Just the standard longsleeve tee? Obviously I want to get the tight fitting stuff right?

i wear the mock turtleneck long sleeved one to avoid any chafing between the collar and my neck...plus it kinda shields me from the neoprene that I am allergic to

...that is when i don't forget it at home...

the tighter fitting stuff......their loose gear will be like wearing a normal long sleeve shirt.

trust me, i have both, and the loose gear stuff makes it uncomfortable.
