i have the DC volt jacket in green. best. jacket. ever. i barely even use it because it keeps me too warm most of the time (im in socal so its sometimes high 40s/low 50s).

it has 3 layers of insulation i think. it also has a built-in ski mask that you can put on or stow away. if i need to, i just wear a t-shirt and this jacket and i'll be fine.

hey guys, i just bought a pair of Burton Pointer Pants (Shell) and they are no insulated. I'm looking for a super warm base layer. People have recommended Under Armour 3.0 and Columbia Omni-heat Heavy Weight. I'm located in Vancouver and the average temperature on the mountains are -2C to -10C. This is my first shell so i'm looking for advice!

Thanks,

I just use any sweatshirt, i prefer non-cotton, and a long sleeve shirt or flannel. For my legs I just wear UA's cold gear compression leggings. If its really cold i'll throw on some sweats. I have a shell jacket and insulated pants I tend to layer up on top. And more layers the better really never just rely on one layer if its cold. What layering does is create air pockets that your body then heats which keeps you feeling warm. more air pockets the better. however compression material tends to wick and distribute sweat so that's good stuff too.

Odlo - some Swedish or German brand.

I played hockey in an unheated indoor rink where the outside temp was -20C with just the Odlo long sleeve top and bottoms under my hockey gear and was not cold.

I used UA base 3 at 15F deg temps with just the UA and shell outer layers and was just fine.

Anything Merino wool. I have a merino wool base shirt and its awesome I love it keeps me nice and cozy. I was looking at the airblaster ninja suit with merino wool but they are a bit pricey and my legs dont often get to cold.

Thanks,
Depends where you are riding around Vancouver. Local hills I just wear a cheap base layer bottom I got at Sears (yes seriously) and my 686 shell pants do the rest. Maybe get something better if you are going interior or Whistler but for Cypress/Grouse/Seymour i'd concentrate on staying DRY!
