What to wear under pants?

I've only used "ski" type pants before that had a little built in insulation, and have been fine in pretty cold conditions with just a base layer under them. I have since gotten some "snowboard" pants that don't really have any insulation, just some mesh on inside. Seems like it might not be enough with just a base layer, maybe it will be.
Before my trip out west I'd like to get everything I need. No real way to test this here in FL as it's been 80*... What if anything do you need to wear as a midlayer for uninsulated pants?

I ride in shells and I'm fine down to 20 at night with just a base layer and some b-ball shorts on. It's mostly important to keep your upper warm. Your legs are putting a ton of heat anyways since that is what you are using while boarding.

Then again, my socks come about to my knee pads and my knee pads come about to my underwear so I have two layers on my whole bottom half.

I wear just a base layer if its cold, like below 25. Below 15 I go to a mid-weight base layer. Below zero I add a fleece sweatpant to my base layer.

Under Armour Cold Gear. I have a top and bottom and wear them almost all the time...and almost always ride with all my vents open.

I cannot stand wearing cotton anywhere when I snowboard.

A mid layer on your legs isn't usually necessary, even if you're from Florida (I live in Georgia). I have worn 'warm up pants' before, but now usually just wear a base layer and shell.

Whatever you use should be:
1. Not very thick
2. Not water proof.

You might be better served by wearing boxers under your base layer (or impact shorts over them), maybe throwing on a pair of soft volleyball pads for your knees (make sure they aren't too tight) and calling it a day. Between shorts, knee pads and boots, there won't be much of your leg that isn't covered by 2 layers.

Knee pads? What the???

Anyways

I have a 5k pair of DC pants that I wear inbounds around here.

I always have an airblaster ninja suit on and if it's going to be in the 20's or lower, I wear a pair of workout track style running pants. Basically the same material as basketball shorts.

So a base layer in the ninja suit, a mid layer in the workout pants and then my outer layer of my pants.

And a mirrored setup for my upper body. My legs personally have less over heating issues then my upper body but as long as you have vents, you'll be good to dump off some heat.

With the weather we've been having, it's been in the 30's a lot so you may only need a base layer and an outter layer.

I'm slightly cold blooded and you probably are as well, coming from Florida.
