Default Second Layer

There are lots of threads about base layers (under armor, etc.) and outer layer (jackets, shells, outerwear), but what about the second layer?

Do you guys just wear your hoodies? I already have a hood on my jacket and I'm not pimp enough to have double hoods

depends on what temps you ride in.
I ride in -10C - -30C weather, so the second layer for me is a high quality fleece garmet.

For a mid layer you should look at synthetic or merino. I have a lightweight fleece.

A basic rule is to never wear cotton (hoody) if you are wanting to stay dry/warm. I will wear a base and hoody once it starts to warm up though, because then I don't have to worry about freezing my ass off.

My mid layer right now is an arcteryx covert fleece. Expensive shit but very well worth it.

UA Cold Gear Hoodie is what I wear. Its not cotton and is very warm with a base layer either UA or HH. Just stay away from Cotton.

I am usually fine in a patagonia #3 baselayer and my lightly insulated jacket, but for really cold days, I drop to a patagonia #1 or #2 baselayer (thinner) and add this new bad boy r1 hooded fleece, the hood fits under my helmet and covers part of my face.
I am pretty much a patagonia whore when it comes to baselayers and fleeces
