"Good advice here - my .02 (from selling most of the above to cyclists) Polypropelene - warm, high wicking, low moisture retention - ranges from being very good to extrmely good depending on the quality. Some are low enough on water retention to…"

"Yup. Merino base layer. Kathmandu, or other adventure stores (when on sale) are good. Also, check out the women's underwear areas in dept chains (Target, Kmart etc) - they often have some good ones they don't look too lacy) ;)"
