What do you use to keep your leathers from getting all funked up during the summer? Both Underarmour and Wikmax are supposed to wick sweat away and keep you dryer and cooler. Plus I'd imagine they keep your leathers from getting nasty. Anyone use this stuff, or do you just cruise around in your underwear and leathers? My suit has a mesh liner in it which keeps you from getting stuck once you start to sweat, but the liner isn't removeable, so I don't want it to get nasty.

Last summer I just wore boxer breifs and a T-shirt underneath my leathers. I tried moisture wicking underwear but it was just too hot... really depends on the temp... but so far my leathers still smell like leather.

Thanks...I think I'll pick some up and do some before and after testing in the heat. Wonder if they make socks? That's probably more essential for me, gotta keep the boots fresh.
