This is one of those times where backcountry or REI would be super useful since you could return the item if you still sweat up a storm.

I rode few times this year when it was really cold(17F with windchill of 3F) and I was still wet afterwards. Problem is if I don't wear a mid layer, it's too cold because my outer shell is just a shell without any insulation.

Any suggestions on a good mid-layer that breaths well?
