Under Armor quick question, need an answer quick!

The guys are going to REI for lunch and I want to try the under armour stuff you guys have been saying good things about.

Long sleeve cool shirt for the summer? And what about pants/shorts? What do you recommend for under leather stuff, we are leaving in just a few?

I like the pants and long sleeves....but only wear them at the track. Not sure how they would do on a day ride....

I've got long sleeves and pants, and they're perfect - spring or summer. Nice and cool and slippery. You'll love 'em. They do run a little small - they sure ain't baggy!

Re: Under Armor quick question, need an answer quick!

yeah, they are pretty snug...compression type....

It's a bit disgusting really....but they work awesome for pulling the leathers on and off....

Re: Under Armor quick question, need an answer quick!

It helps if you have the Terrell Owens physique (I don't ) because they are truly form fitting (only a factor when you have the leathers pulled down or off).

ditto... Though I do wear the shorts in a pinch... The long pants do make the leathers peel right off.

Re: Under Armor quick question, need an answer quick!

This brings up an question that I have wondered about since I started using the UA stuff.....

Since they are so slippery, will your armor stay in place if you fall?

Anyone ever crashed with their UA on?

I guess if your leathers are tight enough, it should!

Re: Under Armor quick question, need an answer quick!

Just bought a long-sleeve version for this upcoming weekend. Had a couple of the short-sleeve but my main problem seems to be peeling my leathers off my arms. I just wear regular nylon athletic shorts.

I've crashed in Nike ACG running tights (long top and bottom) and there was no problem.
