    Ben my current layer setup is underarmour cold gear for the top, and when I am wading in Canyon Lake in the cold AZ winter I wear sweats under my breathable waders. When I moved to AZ 2 years ago, I got rid of my cold weather clothes not knowing one day I would need them all to fulfill my addiction to the outdoors.

    I like azwanderings on facebook, and I look forward to all of your updates on facebook.

    I shared this giveway, and nice words to my friends on facebook.

    Ben- my current base layer is a wool poly blend by Duofold which I don’t think they make anymore. After that I wear various combinations of fleece and sweaters depending on the weather and activity.

  5. mr blur

    duofold and underarmor. I used to have some capiliene but that seems to have been misplaced. misplaced long underwear? are you kidding me?
    both light and mid weight…

    does this give me one chance? I dont do the facebook thing…

  6. GSFeder

    Thanks, Ben.

    I currently have some cotton thermal bottoms, but I’m waiting on some back ordered fleece pants from LL Bean. On top I wear a wicking SS or LS tshirt with various weights of fleece or even a duofold wool & polyester top. My merino wool Buff is the bomb.

    I hope the stuff you’re offering is not the same set you tested!

    Hello, Ben! Thanks for this great opportunity and also thanks to the folks at RedRam. My base layers have been used for years, probably, time for more updated technology for me. I use some Columbia Poly material for pants and some fleece knock off’s for the top.

  8. FoulHook

    Current setup is thermal cotton top & bottom. It gets chilly sometimes. Although I do have some electric socks for my feet.

  9. Gary

    My base layer is nike or under armor. I would be willing to try redram. Ben we need to fish one of these days.

  10. Marc Nielsen

    I’m a big guy 6’2″ 200+ lbs so in Arizona I don’t typically use much baselayer. If I think it will envolve any type of activity this is especially true. That being said, always that light weights on the bottom half, up top light to mid weight base layers.

  11. Chuck

    I am still using 1980’s vintage Bellwether expedition weight (not 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0) polypropolene. It has become pretty scratchy over the years and to minimize it I use a dryfit shirt under the top. It is good for a day or two but the BO become pretty bad after about the 3 day. It is warm though, just not the most comfortable anymore.

  12. Jimmy

    My current base layering is some off brand polly thermal. I usually wear fleece over the top of that for really cold situations.

  13. Allison

    Followed you guys on twitter, too.

    I currently wear all REI brand baselayers and a heavier weight sherpa baselayer.

  14. Bernard Yin

    Baselayers can vary but above all must be wickable. It seems obvious but cotton thermals of yore weren’t inherently so. I favor either silk, merino or synthetics and presently own synthetics. A good baselayer product is an essential part of the outdoorsman’s wardrobe for certain. Merino is fascinating stuff and is being tried in a lot of interesting ways. Heck, there are even merino-lined wetsuits. Very curious about REDRAM.
    Posted about AZ Wanderings at Media Needles facebook profile too.

  15. Wandering Blues

    My base layer is a pair of my old 9oz cycling tights and a poly/lycra l/s t-shirt. I should up grade, but I’m too busy casting flies!

  16. MeLikeFlyFish-FlyFishGood

    I have some 20-year old PolarMax top and bottoms (poly/lycra). Also mix in a UArmour top and an old, dressy merino wool sweater that busted a whole… so now it’s an outdoor layer.

  19. BrookfieldAngler

    My current base layer consists of some running pants, under my jeans. On the upper half, it usually consists of a t-shirt, a thin long sleeve t-shirt, a sweat shirt and then a coat. Not idea at all…I NEED THESE!

  20. Matt Harrison

    Basketball shorts, or if it is cold, some nice golf-club pattern pajama pants. I know, I need a real base layer.

  21. Landon

    I currently use fleece wader pants by Cabela’s and Sportsmans’ Warehouse under my waders and a wool sweater

    While hunting I use Cabela’s MTP medium weight or Indera fleece military weight

  22. Jonathan

    I wear Smart Wool for a base layer, then fleece pants over that under my waders. Wool socks are important too.

  23. Jonathan

    I dusted off my never used Twitter account to follow the Backcountry Journal.

  24. T. Chris

    Posted this site and give-away on FB. I would also twitter, but I haven’t figured that one out yet. 🙂

  25. cofisher

    Ben, since I only get out minimally in the winter, I’m not well prepared. I wear underarmour on the bottom and t-shirt, long john top and a flannel shirt, all covered by a down coat. I was already a fan on Facebook of both Wanderings and Backcountry Journal,shared this post on Windknots Facebook Page and posted to Arizona Wanderings page.

  26. Eunan

    my current thermal set up is a pair of Puma running leggings paired with a canterbury long sleeve rugby undershirt. both topped off with fleece (bottom) and wool on top.
