The 3.0 gear was recommended for me by a friend, as I do a lot of ocean fishing in the Atlantic during the winter months as much as I do during the summer.
I was a little leary of putting out the cash, because of how light in weight this product actually is.
When put to the test, it has far exceeded my expectations...VERY WARM and DRY!
I went as far as placing an order for the "bottoms" (leggings) as well and am now waiting for their arrival in the mail.
This was not a purchase, but an investment!!!

This base layer is bar far the warmest item of clothing I have ever owned. As a coach, I am out in the elements a lot and this was without a doubt the best purchase I have ever made. Typically, I have to take it off when I come back indoors, because I start sweating with it on. If you are outside for long periods of time in the cold, this is a MUST.

I'm a skinny person and with this as an inside layer, my body is pretty warm. Since I'm skinny (5'7'' and only 127 lbs) and is not in shape, I get cold easily. There are several times where I still a bit of chill while wearing 3 layers (a regular tshirt, this underarmor shirt and a hooded sweater. Not sure about the degree of coldness, but I live in San Diego and the several times that I get the chill, I'm guessing it was about 40 degree or so. I would buy this again :)

As one may expect from their HeatGear, the UnderArmour ColdGear manages perspiration really well. Occassionally, what I encounter in the field is warmer than predicted or the workload is more vigorous or extensive than usual. I'd guess that you already know the risks of sweating in cold weather.
All my winter beanies and base layer down to the ankles is UnderArmour. I may have to buy stock in this company. I recommend the #1,#2, & #3 base layers, I use them in combination to give me 4, 5, and 6 equivalents. This is covered with appropriate layers of easily removed fleece, giving me all the warmth I need in a North Dakota winter without sacrificing breathability, flexability, or being held back by a weight of clothing.

Weather was cold and nasty the whole season, this is the greatest thing since wool !!! Light and the only thing that ever got cold was my nose. I'm 60 yrs old and have tried everything to hunt with. Some people don't like the skin tight feeling, Mine was like a wetsuit for diving, but I like that. BUT I was never cold and never restrained for movement, in any shooting position.
My temps were 0 in the morning to 25 degrees and wind of 25 to 35 miles per. This is good stuff.
I had the unders for my legs too. Had the full body coverage. Worked great for coyote hunting too. Sitting in
3 below zero snow for 20 minutes at a time.
