How ever you feel the most comfortable. If it is hot out then only the armor. If cold out then a jersey over. It is all personal preferance.

By the way, is boady a new company?

I usually wear a GARNEAU DRYTEX T-SHIRT under my armor, then a jersey over the armor. So actually I have 3 layers on. If it's cold it keeps you warm, if its hot, it does a good job of wicking away sweat and helps keep you cool. Not to mention...Have you ever tried to wash body armor? Not an easy task. I wear a 661 Pressure Suit.
