What he said about moisture wicking long sleeves is true. It seems wrong but it works.
Ask any trackday rider or racer. Those shirts are common in the pits and that's for a good reason. They work.

I switched over to a full wicking pants and shirt. I'm happy.

I remember the first time I tried on the new style long sleeve fishing shirts a couple years ago.. instantly felt 10-20 degrees cooler putting on a long sleeve shirt that seems like it would be hot vs. a tank top or short sleeve shirt. I own about a dozen now.

MOTO-D... definitely the best bang for your buck and arguably the best thing going regardless of price

I have some under armor but the Moto-D suit looks promising. Have you tried both? Moto-D advantages?

It's one piece. That definitely helps. Definitely better than having separate tops and bottoms.. It is a little more slick than your typical Under Armour stuff so a little easier on taking leathers on and off . Although that part of it I would say is somewhat negligible. It unzips from the bottom if you have to go to the bathroom. It's not too tight it's not too loose. Very comfortable. As far as how much cooler it will keep you. I wouldn't say that it keeps you any cooler than any other name brand using the same type of material. It does have the little things that go around your feet so they won't pull up while you're putting on your leathers. Kind of wish they did the same thing around the hand as well. Honestly if you want to compare it to any other legit one piece under suit. I can't honestly say that the material itself is any better. Unzipping it from the bottom is definitely a plus because not all suits have it. The biggest selling point is the price. The price can't be beat it looks like. Any other major name brand is $50 to $100 more for the same type of suits and in a lot of cases dont unzip from the bottom.. Their socks are made with the same material but have little grip pads on the bottom so your foot doesn't slide around in your boot... it holds up well in the wash. Like I said. I would rate it with the best suits out there but for the price tag kind of hard to pass on..

I have a MOTO-D suit and love it. However on the really hot days the best purchase I have ever made is a stacool vest. I had it tailored to fit snug and the ice packs really keep your core temperature very cool. Only wish they had something similar for head/helmet.

In the equipment is very hot, it is difficult for me to drive dgem, so I prefer night trips to moto.
