    advice on this base layer?

    this Terramar Polypro Base Layer Crew seems like a good price

    i currently wear undershirt, a heavy flannel style waffle shirt, and a helly hanson warm jacket

    this keeps me warm enough (even at 20 degrees today), but the waffle long sleeve shirt is quite bulky, and if the temp jumps of a bit during my ride it feels quite heavy

    anyone own this? thanks

    I don't have this one but I have a polypropelene shirt. It makes a good base layer because polypropelene is "hydro phoebic" meaning it releases water. If you wear a cotton layer above it most of the perspiration will be absorbed into the cotton leaving a dry layer against your skin. Also Polypropelene is a good insulator and is light weight. I have been using an Under Armor type garment made by Nike (because it is cheaper) as a base layer lately as it works in a similiar way. As it gets colder I will go to my poly garment.
