    More on wicking base layer stuff

    Go to Campmor.com and do a brand search on Duofold. They have some really good deals on Coolmax and Hydroduct tshirts and stuff. Hydroduct is almost the same as Coolmax. Very good wicking. My every day under-jersey shirts are Duofold Hydroduct. Varitherm and Thermax are also similar fabrics just generally slightly heavier weights and more for cooler weather layers, generally long sleeves and tights.
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    I ordered some l/s zip mock turtlenecks from them last week ... I have a couple of the short sleeve ones I got last year when I was running and they are very good quality.

    My other cheap experiment for this winters base layers was to pick up a couple of merino wool light sweaters off ebay. I got 3 of them with a delivered price to my door of under $10 each. I think they will work pretty good, but I have really long arms so there will be several inches of exposed wrist.

    Me, too, Paniolo. I'm 6'0" and wear 30" inseam pants, but 35" sleeves! I'm generally wearing arm warmers as it gets that cool so I can adjust the length.

    haha, sounds simular! 6'2" 32" inseam and I like 36" sleeves, but it's hard to find even 35's! Arm Warmers are our freinds On a bike a couple of inches of wrist or ankle doesn't feel the cold too much ... at least at the levels I deal with in Austin TX!

    I'm 6'2" with 36" sleeves, I found a base layer that has sleeves that actually make it to my wrists with plenty to spare! Oddly enough I found it in the kids section at Walmart. Itís a ďStarterĒ brand size 16/18. It was slightly thicker than the similar shirts in the menís section, the sleeves are as long as the menís XL and the body was the same as the menís L. $9.99us

    I was going to buy some but I tried my xl from last year they are baggy but still ok. I like them as a base layer and a cotton long sleeve teeshirt over it. thos works pretty good down to about 40 degrees. plus it is cheap to buy 5 sets for commuting.
