I wear underarmour. top and bottom. Makes putting on/taking off leathers way easier.

Any other off-brand compression gear should also work just fine, and probably be cheaper than UnderArmour.

You need to wear long sleeve/long pants tech compression (like under armor) for 2 main reasons:

a. It wicks sweat away from your body. You will then benefit from evaporative cooling as the air moves through your suit and when you take off the top in the pits if there is a breeze. If you wear anything cotton it will just become soaked with sweat and make you feel gross.

b. It allows the leather to move over your body. Leather will grab onto your sweaty skin if you are wearing short sleeves/pants. This will make getting the suit on and off really difficult. The UA will also allow the suit to move a little on you and you move around on the bike.
