Most of the mid layers I've seen look like lame fleece jackets a middle-aged geography teacher would wear. I'll do that if I need to, but figured there have got to be better options.
I realised that Nike do Dri Fit t shirts and mid-layers for other sports.. Surely - as polyester items designed to wick sweat - they'd be perfect?
Thinking a couple of of their Dri Fit Swoosh t shirts, plus a Dri Fit sweatshirt for a mid layer.
I wear a Nike Dri fit long sleeve (either as a base or mid, depending) and it's great. But prepare for it to stink like holy hell. Happens with my UA gear as well. It's because bacteria from sweat adheres to polyester/synthetics, even through washings, from what I understand.
It can be resolved by soaking in white vinegar prior to wash however.
I've also worn the Dri Fit tees on warmer spring days.
