Before my last bike was stolen (2003 R1), I used to wear a UA hood under my helmet on colder days. It' worked great, but I also had a full face helmet. If you have an open face moto helemet, one of those neoprene ones might work better.

I am wearing one in my avatar. Started wearing UA when I played football, never looked back. Seriously, nothing else compares. They keep me completely dry and warm unless I am nearly inactive and it is exceptionally cold. They also don't fit too tight. Wearing some form-fitting hoods can make your nose or ears sore from being pressed down all day, but after 10 hours on the mountain, I don't hurt much at all from them.

+1 for under armor.

Agree on all counts. But, IMHO UA cold gear, girdle, and football pants w/full pads can get kind of cumbersome. I only break out the UA cold gear for football when it's really cold. What posistion did you play?

I started at safety, but I got moved to corner because I was kind of lanky. The teams we played were confused as to how to handle a 6'3 180lb cornerback. That was all years ago in high school. I wish I had kept playing after that. Would have been a blast.

You?

HAHA. Awesome. I actually never played in high school. I started playing flag football during college. After that found a local group that plays recreational (but full contact/pads) 6-Man. I dunno if you know much about 6-man, but it is totally different than a full team game. It's much faster, and scores are way higher. Anyone can carry / advance the ball. It's like a great combo of rugby and american football. Super fun. Since it is more recreational, everyone switches positions a lot. I'm not that big (5'10, 160), so I basically end up anywhere but the line. Speed is my strong point, so I often end up running the ball, or safety type position. QB sometimes, but my arm ain't that strong. I had a stint as kicker last year. Holy freaking disaster. Haha. The fun part is that everyone knows that everyone else has to go to work on Monday, so no one is really trying to kill each other with hits. That said, I am still really sore after every game.

EDIT: It's actually a real shame that there are not more full-contact adult rec football leagues. You can play baseball, hockey, basketball, etc for the rest of your life if you want...but if you want to play football beyond HS or college, your more or less stuck in flag leagues. That is a shame.
