What kind of mid layer do you use?

This is in regards to temps colder than say 25 degrees. Out in So*Cal I'm used to wearing a long sleeve shirt and T-shirt under my shell and totally fine with it. However this year I'll be doing most of my boarding in SLC, Colorado and Whistler. I will be buying a wicking base layer, but curious what you guys use as a mid layer in between the base and a shell.

Thanks

I went to Mountain High last week on Monday and it was Buttfucking cold. 20-30F. it never gets that cold here in So Cal. Not often at least. I had a compression base, thermal mid (I know, cotton but it's a tiny hill I wasn't going to die) a Northface shell and liner and I was still chilly. Definitely need some wool mid's for my Denver trip if it's cold and still I might have to add a layer.

I really like hot chillys as a base layer. I find it very warm. However, one of the best things I ever did was go find a WOOL sweater at goodwill that was like five bucks. Wool is a fabric that is very good at keeping you warm even if your sweaty and damp. I hardly ever leave home on a trip without it.

My mid layer is usually a hoodie with UA cold gear as my base layer and that seems to do the job on days with the temp below 25.

Just a hoodie, usually. I have several Nomis Lumberjack hoodies. They are double bonded flannel which is quite warm but lightweight.

My favorite baselayer so far has been Polypropylene (until it melted in the dryer). It spreads out the moisture more than polyester (which is what most base layers are made of). I wore that with a polyester mid layer and a layer of fleece. I hear great things about merino wool but still haven't tried it.

I use some ploypropylene long johns, with a t-shirt over it, and then my jacket. Never too cold to ride with that combo for me. Although, I just bought a Ninja Suit, so my layers will be changing.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Airblaster merino wool ninja suit for my base
EMS lightweight fleece
Riding shell and pants

This combo works for me even when it gets extremely cold. Anything over 25/30* and I am definitely not wearing the fleece
