    I love my SmartWool long underwear. I got a pretty good deal on it at REI-outlet.com

    My favorites were old time trap door cotton long johns. Not the best for warmth, but very comfortable and no bunching at the waist like two-piece long johns, where you end up with extra layers where they meet at the belt line.

    For warmth, I have found the best is a thin polypropylene against the skin with a bulkier wool or cotton over that. The poly allows moisture to pass away from the skin, to be absorbed in the next layer. Wool is the best second layer, because it will pass moisture on out without losing bulk. The outer shell should be water resistant and somewhat loose. Personally, I normally just use jeans treated with Scotch Guard. You have to be talking pretty cold to make good use of this get-up, though.

    The same is true for your feet. A thin poly or nylon sock, with a wool boot sock over that, and outer foot wear that is not too tight.

    I use Academy's brand of underarmor. Much cheaper and it is awesome. My hubby also uses this brand for riding dirtbikes in the winter.

    I use Pepper brand. They are thin, breathable, comfortable,and affordable! They are thin enough to wear under a pair of breeches, yet plenty warm!

    I'm allergic to wool, and used to sweat in the poly blends, but silk works well if it is not super cold. Also cool-max works well for me. Either one is thin and not bulky, and I wear fleece breeches over the top with tall Stateline tack riding boots. Up top is a turtleneck with a sweatshirt and sweatjacket over that. I usually have to start peeling off a top layer once I get moving well.

    However, I am in the south, so I only need the thermal layers on the really cold days, when it is 15-30 degrees

    The problem I have is keeping my fingers from freezing and still be able to hold onto the reins...any ideas??

    Cuddl Duds...love them. Wore them today - it was in the 50's so not really cold but I wore those with a short sleeved shirt and a wind breaker - was just fine in overcast skies and misting rain.

    I have these too and can't complain.

    Truthfully though? If you're riding in truly cold weather, especially if it's damp/windy, the best investment you can make is a pair of leather full chaps.

    When it's truly cold here (the other day, wind chill of -10*F), I wear my knockoff under armor, my jeans, and my chaps. Not enough layers to be bulky, but I stay toasty warm.
