    Does anyone have any experience with the Under-Armor cold gear when it gets wet? I am on a sailing team and want to get some good thermals for sailing in, but many of the thermals don't really keep one warm once they get wet. I am looking at getting some of their mock turtleneck compression shirts like this:

    Men's ColdGear

    and some bottoms like this:

    Men's ColdGear® Action Leggings | 1000525 | $49.99 | Under Armour® USA

    These would be a base layer underneath foul-weather gear, but would still get wet occasionally.

    I think the moisture wicking ability is the key - stick with 100% poly - avoid cotton longjohns they absorb sweat and other moisture and will just chill you to the bones!

    Even if they wet your body heat will dry them fast.

    you will be fine, the cold water will move to the outer surface rather rapidly. Keeping you warm.
