    Lightbulb What do you wear under leathers?

    For those who race/have been to a track day, what do you wear under your leather suits?

    I know a few guys who wear undies and a t-shirt or singlet. I know the Psycleskins are supposed to be really good but don't want to invest in those just yet. I have long 'Skins' pants so I'm thinking that will do a similar job? And then just a singlet or t shirt..

    Cheers

    Undies and a singlet. Although now I bought some fake skins I wear them... Makes it much easier to take them off after a long, hot, sweaty ride. They were just the $40 cheapies off ebay... Work great!

    Alright cool, skins and a singlet it is! It currently takes me about 2-3 minutes just to get my legs out of my suit after a ride so hopefully the skins will simplify this! -_-

    RE: What do you wear under leathers?

    Do skins help to keep you cool at all? Or will I be better off with a singlet?

    I'm going to set up a few fans in the garage I'm in for the track day and my suit has awesome ventilation so shouldn't be too bad. I only get hot when I'm sitting at traffic lights but this won't be a problem at the track!

    skins stop the leather sticking to your skin which I think makes you hotter.

    I got some Alpinestars skins which are sweet!
    They feel very comfy as well. Beats any thing else I've tried.
