Good undersuit for your 1-piece?

What do you guys wear under your 1-piece?

Just got my 1-piece in my mail and trying to figure out whats the best thing to wear under it when I attend track days this year or wear it on spirited rides.

Certain material that helps slide the suit on and off easier than others?

Re: Good undersuit for your 1-piece?

There are a few companies that make 1pc undersuits, I've heard good things about the Moto-D undersuit. I personally just wear a long sleeve under armour shirt and a pair of under armour leggings.

+1, but the Nike version. Keeps you cool and dry on warm days and helps the suit slide on a tad easier.

Just get some tight athletic leggings from Kohls. I got mine for <$20. Just as good as the expensive Under Armour ones.

For upper body, a long sleeve compression shirt as well.

I tried compression shorts for my first few track days, but the full leggings are way better.

I bought the 2 piece Alpinestars undersuit and it works great.

Picked up the reebok stay cool gear in long sleeve and long pants from dicks for half off when the season changed. Works great!

Re: Good undersuit for your 1-piece?

Thanks guys. I was thinking Under Armour, but I'll definitely look into Nike, Reebok and some of the cheaper stuff too.

Gonna have to shoot by Dicks one of these days and see what they got.

Re: Good undersuit for your 1-piece?

I have Under Armor but they are pricey.

I recommend a two piece set for warm weather and a two piece set for cold weather.

The few times I wore just a tank top under my one piece suit I felt like the thing would never come off.
