I never have, but notice a lot of people do. Why? It seems like it would be really hot wearing a shirt under it.

Uh, I always thought my jersey was a shirt. Why wear two?

I wear a sleeveless shirt to wick moisture off me, then a chest protector, then jersey.

I have always worn a shirt underneath my jersey. I currently wean an Under Armor heat shirt, kidney belt, jersey, chest protector.

+1 with the Under Armor shirt. I have one for the Summer and a long sleeve version for the Winter.

What does the under armor do??

I can't imagine wearing one for MX!! I give myself mild heat-stroke about once every 30min at the tack! lol

No undershirt, most are cotton and don't do a good job of wicking moisture. I use a synthetic jersey and add layers over the chest protector depending on temperature.

I wear the under armor below the jersey it just feels better to me.

I have always worn a long sleeve undershirt for MX. Yes... its hotter then crap. I only do it for one reason... self preservation. Call it a rash preventer.. I seem to crash often enough that the little bit of extra protection to keep me from getting all scraped up... seems to be worth the heat endured.

I figure I sweat off a little more weight that way as well. :smirk:

Same. Prevents a rash from chest protectors too.

+2 for the Under Armor. I wear a cheaper Nike version under a compression suit. I was worried that the long sleeves would be too hot, but any air passing by feels like a air conditioning. I don't know how it works, but it does. Of course it's a dry heat in California, so maybe it wouldn't work so well in the south.

obviously temperature is the key factor here. we ride year 'round out here and pretty soon it gets cool enough for another layer. NEVER a cotton t-shirt as it gets wet and holds cold to your body. under armor type wicks away moisture and dries fast. it beats adding a light jacket if you dont need to. same with underarmor leggins' too as it cools down.

i wear skins. not sure if that counts as a shirt but i cant tell the difference temp wize between wearing them and not wearing them even in 40C heat. plus when i take my jersey off i dont have to sit around topless like a dbag or stink up a fresh shirt.

edit: do you guys get fit chicks jogging in skins over there without realising that it's actually underwear? its freaking awesome. god bless the skins inventors.

Under Armor is great, It feels good, helps with the rubbing of gear, it breaths fine, and it helps with the sweating alot..... most of the military out here prefer wearing them
