Thumbs down I melted my light base layer :( Suggestions for cheap replacement?

I loved this base layer, North Face Hypoglycemic with hollow noodle technology (something like that ). Anyways I got it off Steep n Cheap with a big order for, well, cheap and to replace it is 50$ CND. Any suggestions for a very light base layer that is not too expensive? In the future I shall read the tags before drying.

Bonfire fusion base layer $25 on trusnow.

Maybe try backcountry, evo or dogfunk and see if there are any heavily reduced ones. I'm a big fan of Dakine base layers. They are warm and wick moisture well IMO. I've also got a button team base layer which is also pretty damned good as well.

Two of the Dakine ones they have advertised for the guys, I already have, and am sure I got them for something silly like $10ea season before last...

I have a sessions lightweight as well, I wouldnt recommend it though, they pill fairly easy and feel cheap.

Costco got merino wool top and bottom for 39.99 each. Bought some and they seem great for the price.

Walmart carries lightweight Polyester base layers for $9 a piece. Sams Club may have Omni wool base layers for ~$20. Merino wool and poly mix but they are more mid weight.

i have a couple of Under Armour base layer i wear for snowboarding. if it's not too cold, i would just wear a normal UA gym short sleeve shirt. if it's really cold, i wear the long sleeve cold gear compress (from the hockey section). both really lightweight and draws the sweat away from the skin.

Ya but probably cotton and basic polyesters from Walmart. I can live with that but I liked the amazingly light feel of the hollow noodles.

Well, don't feel too bad, last week I melted the ass off my pants. I didn't think floor heater grills got that hot
