Default thermals??

Which are better to wear as thermals? Underarmor or Patagonia capilene 2?
I was leaning toward underarmor because i could use it for jogging in the cold, but i wasn't sure if having compression fit for the session would be comfortable

Capilene all the way if you want synthetic.

Compression fit won't be comfortable if you have never worn this type of snug fit. However, you will quickly come to love it. You'll get used to it as soon as you start jogging. You forget that you even have it on. Another reason compression fit is good is because it puts pressure on your muscles which helps combat soreness.

Patagonia and UnderArmor are both great. In fact, my sis in-law wears a UA base 1.0 under a Capilene zip neck.

Again, both companies make great products. You can pick either or with your eyes closed and you'll end up with good shit. If you want a Merino Wool base layer, look at SmartWool. They make 100% Merino Wool products and they are excellent quality.

A real Scotsman would wear a thatched kilt with no base layer!

This is easy... the patagonia stuff is 10000000% better than the UA gear. I have had both and the UA stuff is good but not great. The Patagonia stuf is the best base layer I have ever owned. If you don't want to go synthetic their all wool line is great also. Spend the money and go for the patagonia you will not be disappointed
