if you want to feel dry in the winter, get some merino wool base layers. you'll feel dry almost all the time, and even keep on wearing the clothes you worked out in after your workout, that's how comfortable and dry wool is.

polyester is garbage, and leaves users prone to the wet out you are experiencing. the synths, although they do dry fast, don't provide a dry feeling while wearing them.

I used to think synthetics made great base layers -like, back in the 1980's! but not anymore.

it's wool for the base, polyester for the midlayer, and a simple wind shell for the top. If I'm not wearing cotton bombing around town, that is.
