Default Best layers for uninsulated monosuit

Hi,

I've been mountain riding with insulated bibs and non insulated jacket and now I would like to switch to a non-insulated monosuit to avoid the times where snow comes up into my back.

What are the best layers you guys are using under your monosuits? Also, its been said to avoid cotton. What material should I be looking for in terms of a sweater to wear on top of my base layer.

Thanks,
Mike

All I wear is a Klim 2.0 bottom and a T-shirt and Klim mid layer. I thought I would be cold, but I wasn't.

I do polyester under armor sweatpants and a turtle neck under armor base 3.0 in almost all conditions. Go lighter on the top if its over 25, and a second layer of some sort of polyester if below 0. I am normally a bit chilly on the trail, but never cold.

Honestly, it's a little different for everyone and what is "comfortable" for them.

For a top, I always start with a heat gear style t-shirt like under armor, then typically a jersey over the top of this. Then it depends on the temps for the day. If its really cold, I'll use my Klim heavy mid layers. If its normal then I typically wear a Klim mid layer that is lighter.

For the bottoms, if it's cold I wear one of a couple different base layers and then onto a Klim mid layer. Again just depending on how cold it is. If its normal, then I just wear my mid layer and don't worry about the base layer. For me, my legs rarely get cold, so, I'm usually pretty good there.

I should add that over the top of my shell or onsie, I do wear the BCA Mountain Pro Avy vest. When I changed from a tekvest to the avy vest, I literally had to start over with layering!!! Having the Tekvest under the shell is a lot warmer then running the vest on the outside, just something to keep in mind as well.

Merino wool base layers are the best IMO. Seem to naturally regulate temp the best. Then you can go from there for a mid or something heavier if needed.

MICRO FLEECE synthetic polyester fabric

http://ezinearticles.com/?Advantages...ial&id=4421416

POLARTEC is the most well known mfg of fleece

Pic the brands from no name at $10 for a long sleeve shirt to a similar sled name brand like KLIM cost ya $40 pants are similar price.

Fleece best qualities of wool but with two great differences - both the weight and the cost will only be a fraction of what a woolen product will be priced at. This in particular is fantastic news for anyone who is allergic or sensitive to wool.

Polarfleece has a better technology than many of its competitors; its fabric is made in such a way that its innumerable air pockets work to trap body heat, so keeping you warm and insulated hour after hour. Their breathable velour fabric helps to increase the flow of air and so keep you dry and very comfortable especially during an outdoor excursion. To tell which fleece is of a quality worth paying for, feel it with your hands. A good one will be soft, thick and plush, and light will not pass easily through it.

Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/4421416

Go to ebay type size and polarfleece or generic microfleece


Would do 2 layers for shirts and one pair of pants or shorts


Or if you got money moreno wool https://www.woolx.com/pages/what-is-merino-wool


And if money is no object LLAMA !

No monosuit here, just uninsulated bibs and coat. Polyester fleece pants are all I wear for bottoms. Haven't gotten cold there regardless of temp. Long sleeve under armour cold gear top for a base with a MX jersey over that. Klim mid layer in my tunnel pack if it gets cold, or just to peel my sweaty jersey off and put on something dry for the trail ride home.

The Klim is actually my least favorite....so I wouldn't get hung up on a brand for base layers. Buy the merino wool base that fits well, and that you can get the best deal on IMO.

That said, I see Klim has a merino wool offering this year....so I'll grab one of those to try.
