Cold Weather Under Armor

Recommended Posts

Hi all,<br><br>

I already have my standard under armor on the way. I did want to ask about cold-weather under-suit. Is everyone using a plain black neoprene wetsuit for cold weather TK gear? Just want to be sure I have all the right things for trooping.<br><br>

Thanks,<br><br>

Question ... I see you are in Alabama - why would you need cold weather gear?

 

Most of the time you will be too hot and need to shed body heat - not keep it in as UA ColdGear is designed to do. Unless you anticipate trooping outdoors in winter or late fall/early spring, I would personally hold off on that purchase until the actual need arises.

Agreed, Brian.  Unless you are Trooping in Antarctica, I would steer clear of neoprene, Jon.  I have Trooped in 55 degree weather with just my regular compression suit and still managed to sweat a bit.   This is the type of under suit shirt you will need:  https://www.amazon.com/DRSKIN-SABB01-Compression-Tight-Running/dp/B00RMI80GE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480602395&sr=8-1&keywords=black+compression+shirt+men   and pants:   https://www.amazon.com/HEAD-Mens-Compression-Black-Large/dp/B011RTG4QQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1480602478&sr=8-3&keywords=black+compression+pants+men

 

If the logo shows under your armor, you may have to wear them inside out or take a black Sharpie to it.  They also make these in a one piece, but personally I prefer the separate top and bottom, just in case nature calls.

As the guys say, you WILL still sweat, even in colder weather. Keep the joints moving as much as possible on cold troops, or you can find they kinda seize-up due to lack of mobility in armour.

Just wear black thermal compression gear. If you wear a neoprene suit you'll drop.
