    Undershirt w/ armor ?
    by far, the best thing to wear under your armour is Under Armour. the stuff is AWESOME - but a bit pricey... get the Under Armour "Heat Gear" - it's tight, so it won't snag - just don't wear it without your armour as you'll look like a flamer.

    Undershirt w/ armor ?
    Do most wear an undershirt of some sort w/ upper body armor ? If so seems like you would have to use a breath-able shirt or you would become too hot. I tried on a 661 Assault and Azonic Z-6 w/o an undershirt and it was kinda uncomfortable. I saw a guy the other day w/ a tee shirt under his armor and it looked soaked w/ sweat.

    to me the Z6 is very comfortable without a shirt underneath....sometimes a little nipple rub, but then I just wear a well ventilated tank top

    LMAO @ nipple rub. I'm only lettin you slide on that cause I surf too (not very often) but I know what a session of paddling without a gasket will do to the nips. Still funny though....hahah

    Second vote for Under Armour....awesome gear.

    Ouch!
    ...bad memeories of bleeding nipples after a Dana Point surf session...

    Some kind of wicking shirt under the armour is a good idea.

    if you put band aid's on your nipples you can avoid the nipple rub w/o wearing a shirt. i personally wear like an under armor tank top shirt. definately the way to go.

    D-feet makes undershirts for 30.00 buckeroos, but if you go to Wall mart they sell undershirts for 7to 10 bucks. There made to pull the sweat away to like XC jerseys. Come in diff. colors to. Look for a lazy Z logo on the coller. I wear it anytime i use my armor, & a lot of the guys i ride with use them too :cool:

    I dont think nipple has been said enough in this thread. Also, Nike has their new pro apparel out that is seamless so it wont snag, pretty tight stuff, just like underarmour. (sorry, i work at a sporting goods store and they make us learn all about this sh!t).
