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

^^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.
