Thermal base layer for snowboarding? (alternatives to UnderArmour)

As title says, I am looking for a base layer for warmth insulation; similar to UnderArmour ColdGear without the UnderArmour price.

Any suggestions? Does MEC have anything like this?

Mec offers great first layers along with marks work ware house at an even more fabulous price.

Running shops offer great alternatives to pricey base layers and check out sugoi as well.

Even try walmart, they offer great apparel without the hefty price tag

Go to Costco and check out Paradox brand base layers (Shirt and pants).
They have them every year during and before winter. I've been buying a set every year and they're great.

I think they are around $15-20, which is very cheap compared to your typical name brand base layers.

MEC is a bit pricey, but the fabric is great and fit is true to size. Its around $100 for top and bottom :S its pretty much long johns and a thermal longsleeve lol I have had mine for 4 years and still look brand new, so quality is no problem with MEC.

they are sorta tight but it depends on your build.. im 5'10 150lbs so it doesnt really fit tight on me but if you got 20+ lbs on me you shouldnt have any problem.. btw they fit quite large (arm length and legs) so if your close to 6' tall. I would recommend medium for both shirt and legs.

Find a friend that works for some kind of sports store and get Under Armour at 50%.

Get one of the UA balaclavas too. I love mine for cold weather sports.

I can't believe no one has posted about Helly Hansen.
FANTASTIC stuff! I got one as it is warm and comfortable but wicks (sp?) moisture away.

I have two and it has lasted me three years.
Plus OP, if you are looking for tight fit; there is a version that is.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.
