Default No insulation jkt - do I have to add another layer(loc - Michigan)

Hi all. I have just bought DC Angstrem jacket. Like it very much, but there is no insulation at all. What would you, guys, suggest to add for SE Michigan(Detroit) weather? Something basic like UnderArmour Cold Gear long sleeve or something warmer? I have no problems with cold(I'm from Russia's Arctic Region), but still want to be comfortable. Thank you.

Under Armor cold gear is all I wear under my coat. If it gets above 25 or so, I sometimes even have to unzip my coat because I get a little warm. The stuff is crazy good.

And you, like me, have non-insulated jacket also? I'll definitely try Cold Gear, thanks.

No, mine is insulated. As long as your jacket stops the wind, though, UA cold gear should keep the heat in.

Yea non insulated jacket is fine, just wear good thermals and if its really cold throw on an heavy cotton teeshirt or fleece over top of your thermals..

What are good thermals besides UA ColdGear? Because I would rather pay less for the same performance. I'm not hunting for brands and fashion here.

I bought some knockoff brands and they were useless. The Nike brand stuff wasn't any good for me either. The UA Cold Gear is honestly worth the money. I know a $60 shirt is steep, but you won't need to buy anything else. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for input. Not good that UA has no strong competitor. Hence the price.

I think the problem is that their competitors just can't match up. The cost isn't going toward a name brand or anything. It really is a stellar product. I own 2 cold gear shirts and 3 regular shirts as well as 2 hoods. Used it for 3 years now and never considered buying anything else.

I'm starting to sound like a salesman so I'll shut up now.
