Default Base layer to keep you cool and wick sweat?

What a decent base layer that will keep you cool and wick sweat? I always tend to overheat in my jacket with underarmor.

Same problem here. Do you have Coldgear Underarmor(the thick stuff)? If you do try getting the Heatgear compression a size or two to big and it will work well. If you want something different maybe the nike style underarmor, some of my buddies swear by it.

Anywhere from 30* to 5*.

I used to overheat all the time too. Getting a 20K Waterproof/brethability jacket totally helped.

I am new to snowboarding but have a long background in snowmobiling, and yes we sweat our asses off riding hard through the trails.....down to about 10 degrees I use just a lightweight base layer from REI under my jacket....anything colder than that I have a very thin micro fleece layer that I add.....either way the REI base layers work way better than UA.....I have both, actually sell UA in my golf shop and prefer the cheaper, lighter stuff from REI

I'm going to try the Eddie Bauer First Ascent base layer this season. The whole First Ascent line seems like pretty legit gear. It's all super lightweight and seems very well made. The Black Friday sale had everything 40% off so I decided to pick it up.

I like the REI stuff a lot, too. I have a midweight mock turtle neck w/ the zip up collar. Perfect and only $36. If its really cold or i'm running outside, i put a skin tight Craft base layer under it and its really warm. The REI stuff is form fitting, but not skin tight.

Really? what else are you wearing with your underarmor? in 30-40 degree weather I wear just the underarmor and my jacket, 30-15 degrees - underarmor a plain thermal and jacket and in freezing temps - underarmor then fleece and a jacket, if I ever get warm I just open vents or open my jacket. I wouldnt trade my underarmor for anything else because it does such a good job keeping me warm in extremly cold temps.
