what to wear under 1 piece suit

Do most people where that under amour type material underwear? I was looking for it in the store today but only found the kind that stops above the knee. I'd like to find some that goes below the knee and covers that area on the back of your leg behind the knee because that area gets sore. Where can I pick up some cheap clothing like this? I'd rather get it in store instead of online if possible. Only place I've been so far is Kohl's since I was in there for other stuff.

Yep, Under Armor it is. You can find the leggings but you will need to go to a sports store. Most Targets, Kohls, Walmarts and such only carry the shirt in long and short sleeve in their generic make which are just as good. The leggings however are gonna be found in Dick's, Sports Authority, etc.

Buying these types of items on-line is not a bad thing. eBay is a great place to get under armor at a great deal - as long as they say in package or with tags. If you would like to try some, find me at a track day. I have something like 10 short sleeves, 12 long sleeves (both in cold and heat gear) and two different types of leggings as well. The socks are great under boots as well. Their long socks come up to the knee so they do not bind near the calf wear the suit and boot meet; this may cause a stop in circulation causing cramps - not good while riding.

As for sizing, I am 6'00, 200lbs and have no problem with a large legging and tops. You can judge from that sizing if you need to go medium or XL.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

RS Taichi Mesh suit. (Kushitani makes one too)

I like it better than under Armour, and I've done any number of trackdays with both.

I wasted a bunch of time looking for UA long sleeve top and pants and decided it would cost almost as much as the Psycleskins suit I purchased. I have zero regrets buying the Pyscleskins.

Under armor (or any spandex brand) shorts and a long sleeve shirt. The long sleeve shirts make it easier to get your suit on and off and it won't make you any warmer.

I just bought a cheap sleeveless shirt and shorts that are mesh and moisture wicking. I've only done the one day with them, but it seemed to work ok.

I used to wear biker shorts (padded butt) and a long sleeve UA shirt. Slipping out of leather while sweaty is hard WO UA. I found buying a size smaller than normal worked well also.
