I predict it's going to look something like this:

I bought a pair of UA Base 1.0 leggins. They fitted me fine, but there was a problem: every time I crouched down in them (as if on a landing or something when boarding), they would go down. So I returned them.

The reason I bought them in the first place was because the boxers I wore last season kept sliding up my waist and it was a hassle to get them back down again. I just want something that stays where it is! Sometime I just can't win.

...Until now. Compression shorts ($10 from Walmart) + sweat pants for cold days (also $10 from Walmart) = finally, an ultimate base layer that stays in place!
The best part is that on warm slushy days I can just go without the sweat pants.

You save $35. You get removable layer. It stays in place. You get happy face.
Quite simple, really.
This is a tasty burger.

New member - been snowboarding since 87 yeah I'm old. I hated compression gear until I got use to it and being in te upper age group, I don't go riding without eithe UA pr my set of skins gear. Defiantly reduces fatigue at the end of the long day let alone the warmth factor.
I used to use UA thermal
But Two years
Ago I sported the extra cash to spring for both top and bottom skins a200 thermal. It's helped with both my knee injuries and muscle soreness. I wouldn't ride without it. Now I won't go riding with just the skins and nothing else but a pair of skins pants and long sleeve compression shirt keep me fatigue free. I was a total skeptic on the stuff and now I don't go without it. Skins is on the pricier side of the spectrum but for durability I've had excellent luck and money well spent.

I do like UAs think 2.0 thermal
As well on the really cold days.

I also might add if your sore after some serious terrain park riding using skins or other compression gear back home to recover really does help. Huge difference the next day. If your just cruising and riding low key its overkill but if your mountain side for a weekend straight breaking out compression gear for a few hours at home relaxing is really recommended. I should note that I'm a head instructor in the Midwest and usually spend my days and weekends mon stop riding and homesly compression gear keeps me going after a hard weekend or busy lesson times. It's worth every penny but it does take a bit to get used to , on to bunching I've had bunching issues with cheap comp gear but UA therman and skins do a really good job and holding form and not moving up or bunching. Just my two sense.
