No i don't but i will offer an opinion. I would much rather have the wind stopped on the outside layer and a base layer that loves to breathe.

I do have one. It's a great piece of kit. The Craft stuff is very warm and having the (breathable) windbreak just before the skin can make for some useful layering options, particularly under a regular jersey. I wouldn't have several, but I also wouldn't part with my one.
thanks cast, that helps a lot considering i live in place where in only gets under 30 degrees for maybe a week out of the year. most of the winter i'll be dealing with temps around 40, which i'm guessing only requires one windless baselayer
Hey check out the daily deal on aebike.com
they are selling that for 33 and 4 shipping....

^^That's actually a different product. Hell of a price on a damn good product though.
I have the Descente one. It's VERY nice under a fleece jersey when temps are in the 40's, although otherwise their use is somewhat limited.

I have the old style turtleneck version. Awsome peice of gear. I got the matching long johns too. Orginally got them for year round motorcycling, but the turtleneck got more use on the bicycle.
That Craft top is great. I have one with windstopper, and one without. I have found that having this windstopper layer that close to my core does not cause any problem, like buildup of moisture. There is enough space for the vapor to escape.
