I wear capilene here in Chicago pretty much all winter long, every day. It is the best base layer around in my opinion. The thing that is nice about it is that you can buy different weights of it. You can buy lightweight all the way to what they call "expedition" weight, which is to say that they go from silk thin to basically a light coat in thickness. I wear the midweights here in the dead of winter and I am rarely cold.
The stuff isn't cheap, thirty eight dollars for the shirts, but I have had all of my capilene for a long time, my oldest pair is about eight years old. I need to throw some of it out, but it's just still so warm!
