My first set was Under Armor 2.0 base layer, but it's expensive. I found another online which I feel is just as good and far cheaper. I simply use these, under my bibs, vest and jacket, and am generally comfortable at all times.

I'm cheap.
Plain ol flannel lined jeans for the cold days. Makes less packing for the overnight gigs too. Bibs off, and I'm good to go.

The answer depends on if your bibs have insulation. Klimates are insulated right?

Anything that isn't cotton. Jeans are the worst possible layer. Fleece is a great choice.

I stay away from jeans too. But I have some outdoor pants thats 65% polyester/35% cotton that works very well. Very comfortable and doesn't trap moisture like typical jeans do.
And merino wool is my preferred base layer

Also got some cheapo fleece lined softshell pants that was so comfortable that I used them until they were totally worn out.
Went to buy something to replace them and found some from Missing Link. Bummer - gets soaking wet in no time. Most uncomfortable garment I've ever bought

If you have insulated bibs winter bike pants are great. I have some Nashbar ones and even in my shell pants they are enough to 0F. Below that I wear some fleece. Most people over react and wear too much which IMO is way worse than not enough...as long as it isn't ridiculously not enough.

I have Klim Storm bibs and jacket (non insulated)and have been wearing Klim 2.0 and 3.0 base layers. Anything under 20F I wear inferno mid layers and typically have to open up the vents to avoid getting too hot. Tekvest helps keep the heat in as well.

Jeans/cotton are warm until they get wet from sweat or melting snow or water....then it is the worse possible thing you can be wearing.

Not something you want to get stranded wearing with todays alternatives available. Something to think about. Your milage may vary.

I used the Klim 2.0 base,Klim Everest Jacket and Transition pants for the mid,and Klim Kaos for the outer layer.

Never had an issue,and I actually got a little too warm come 1-2 in the afternoon,after riding since 7am.
