Personally, I prefer polarfleece next to my skin. It wicks moisture well, and for me, is warmer than any of the other synthetics. I have different sets of base-layers made of different weights of polarfleece, from 100-weight to 300-weight.

Once it cools down, I use Kuiu and First Lite Merino wool base layers.

Merino wool is great, I use merino wool socks on long distance hiking trips and it takes a couple days for them to start smelling, a cotton sock starts to stink quick and you can never get the smell out.

I would suggest checking out Serria Trading Post and looking at the Icebreaker merino wool line. You can get it cheap, especially if you sign up for email alerts...typically they send you a 30% off coupon. No tax and cheap shipping too.

Polypro or the best............SILK.

Laugh all you want, but it is the best moisture wicking fabric known to mankind. Light also.

I wear silk boxers when I am on a long haul with the bike, no sweat means.........no chaffing and uncomfortable riding.

You must have the UA 1.0 base layer. It is hard to rid the smell out of. I found that the 3.0 is easier to descent though I don't do a lot of walking in the top. It works great keeping you warm.
