on the cheap, you can use any fleece jacket for a mid layer (although, the thicker, the more insulation). I do suggest you get one with pit zips, as they come in extremely handy if things get warm. I'm using a fleece under my thin shell outerlayer and this combo has surprised me with how warm it's kept me through some pretty cold/windy storm conditions.

(btw, I tried the Under Armor Coldgear compression wear and didn't like it. It was too tight and the inner material relatively raspy. If that's all you got, then fine, but there's looser, more sheer fabric, and more comfortable underlayers available at most stores that are cheaper than UA and just as moisture wicking and warm.)

+1...the r1 is awesome. I wear a hoody version. Underneath I wear Patagonia cap 3 or 4 if very cold.

Montbell for the no frills, super warm win. I have one of their down sleeping bags and an ultra-light down jacket. They are both two of the best pieces of camping/cold weather gear I own.

The only problem is the brand is made for tiny Japanese people so if you are super tall or overweight I'd think the fit would be weird.
