Any experience with undersuits???

I use different long sleeves ones for the torso and they work great but always have problem with the lower part of the suit when putting it on and taking it off, especially on hot days...
What do you use for under pants?? Looking for a good option to avoid the sticky pants I found this

Any suggestions???

Under Armour or equivalent from the sporting goods store works fine.

Road Racing World did a great article on under suits, and the Ride Smart Taichi came out on top. I know a lot of folks that use them and love them! They seem to last a long time too. It was supposed to be very cool (temperature, not Fonsi), and did a good job of "wicking" away sweat.

Personally I use a long sleeve Underarmor shirt with the Underarmor shorts, and I've had great luck with them for about 4-5 years. I like 'em, and I think I'll continue to use them personally.

I prefer the Under Armor over the Kushitani undersuit.
It doesn't bunch up and keeps me cooler imo.

Well, no need to say more... UA it is, plus a pant is cheaper than the whole suit... Thanks for replying...

....Teknic undersuit is the way for me. That or under armor (or equivalent) will do the job. Tried both under armor and their equivalent from reg store and couldn't tell the diff (equal to me except for the nifty logo for ua).

I've been using the undersuit by Komodo. I really like it and it does not seem to bunch up at all.
