What are your thoughts on this under armor?

http://stores.sportbiketrackgear.com/Detail.bok?no=21

I got the suit in last night and tried to get out of it. The suit fits snug, as I was wearing a shirt underneath with some shorts but ! It was a pain in the to get out. Will this actually make it a lot easier to get out?

Also, another question, does the suit typically fit very very snug to the pelvic area?

Komodo has a nice inner suit liner that is very inexpensive compared to others out there. Also, the Walmart version of under armour is cheap and effective to help get in and out of suits, especially in the summer.

my Teknic suit rides up in the crotch when im standing but that doesnt matter. if it feels good when ur on the bike (where its intended to be used) then its all good. but if it feels tight there too then you might wanna go up a size or 2. just my opinion.

that underarmor looks like a good idea though. my knee hairs keep getting pulled from the suit when i move around. :(

Go to walmart. Long sleeve and long pants knock off underarmour. You can get 4 complete sets for the price of that thing.

+1, UA Heat gear long sleeve top and leggings for summer, UA Cold gear long stuff for winter

Works like a champ, and makes getting out of the leathers WAY easier then wearing nothing, but the UA itself is a beyotch to get outta at the end of the day...

I wear a long sleeve UA and UA shorts.

Your suit is tight in the crotch because it's made to be comfortable in a riding position. That's why you see most racers with custom suits kinda hunched over when they walk.

Tight in the crotch? Yeah, pretty normal.

Some folks will take a new suit and condition it with saddle soap and leather conditioners too.

Eventually, it will "break in" and not be so stiff or tight in places.
