RC Under-suit recommendations

Post by Foxtrek_64 » Wed Jul 08, 2015 7:52 am

I'm getting my armor in about 2 weeks from Talon over at TZA (going with an RC build). I was thinking on just making a WalMart run to go grab some compression gear, but I'm at a loss as to what I should use as pants. Cargo pants could work, but I'd think they'd be too baggy, and most have a giant seam running down down the outside of the leg. Yoga pants were another option that came to mind, but I fear that may be a bit restrictive and might hold the wrong look. My third option was to go with a one-piece under-suit, perhaps grab a black jumpsuit from a Halloween store (e.g., half-mask Vader or a ghost). Or, I could go with a morph suit without the head/cut the head off, but then, like the Yoda *snickers* pants, it may hold the wrong look.

Bad jokes aside, I was wondering what you guys have used for under-suits, and what your thoughts or recommendations would be comparing different types of under-suits.

Thanks for your help, ner vode.

I found this on Amazon. Based on the price, I went ahead and purchased it. It's a combo long sleeve compression shirt and compression pants, and with shipping only cost me $26 and change.

Long as the waist band logo is covered, those should be just fine.

I'm using a two piece compression when mine gets done. A few people have used the morphsuit sans mask, but regular top/bottom is the most common.

I use these;

Turned inside out you don't see any stitching

Oh and these are cheap!
And they stand up just as good as the Nike or UA brands for a lot less money!
