big 5 sells silk long johns. (they also have some synthetic ones that i also bought for my survival & firearms schools.)

i bought the silk long johns, and am very happy with them. i mostly use them under my sport bike leathers. dont go to the expense of buying lands end.
its about 15.00 a piece for the breeches and top. keeps you dry and wicks away the sweat, also keeps you cozy.

The wife loves silk longjohns. I'm not easily chilled, as long as I have a decent jacket. Hard to keep me out of my Jerusalem Cruisers, even in the occasional Alabama snow.

I spend a lot of time outside in the weather and one of the best forms of "insulated" clothing I have found is your run of the mill 6 dollar a piece Jersey Sweats from Walmart. Im sure there are better high tech under garments but for 6 bucks you cant beat them! Just dont get wet...

They polypro has been standard issue for some time the Polartec is issued to some units . The Polartec is out standing it is what some may call under silk. It control moisture very well
I will say that when you hit extreme cold the old polypro work well just a bit bulky. I have many pair of both in the box.
The Polartec we were issued had the thumb hole it kept the sleeves fro riding up the arm I still wear them when riding in cold weather also made a better fit with gloves
