Mid Layer

After buying a AK Hover jacket I realized that since its just just a shell im going to think about layering different. In the past since my jacket had Premaloft lining I could simply where the jacket and a base layer.

Any ideas what would be considered the best base layer? Something breathable for colder days. What about a down vest?

smartwool lightweight or midweight, or Patagonia capalene for baselayer

Patagonia R1 fleece, nano puff vest or jacket for insulating mid-layer and you're good for anything.

For a mid-layer, I've used the R1 Full-zip by Patagonia (Patagonia Men's R1 Full-Zip Jacket - Free Shipping on Patagonia orders over $49 at Moosejaw) for the past couple of years and have really like it.

For a base layer, I recommend merino wool products - Ibex, Icebreaker & Patagonia again.

any lightwieght merino works great as a baselayer(icebreaker, smartwool, stoic). quite a few people use Under armor coldgear. the a light or heavy fleece or light down jacket for really cold days.

i use a breathable shirt then a stoic heavy merino turtleneck for warm days and then throw a light fleece over that from about 30-20 deg or a heavy fleece for anything colder.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

I use my Ninja Suit for a base, then I throw on a non-cotton tee and my shell. If it's balls in your stomach cold out, I'll throw on my shell's internal jacket. That's the advantage of a three-in-one though.

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

Guy at my local snowboard shop the ninja suit isnt going to provide warmth as much as keep you dry by wisking away moisture. You find the add good heat i take it?

I do. I could see why one might say that, but it's definitely not a problem I have. I much prefer it over my traditional polypropelene 2 piece set. Plus, as an added bonus, it's impossible to get powder down your back or pants when wearing a one piece base layer.

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