If my base layer is fuzzy for comfort, the fabric of a fleece mid layer sticks instead of sliding. That leads to needing the insulation layer to be nylon lined. Is that all the choices that I have? So I need a base layer with a flat surface on the exterior just to accomodate the mid layer fabric? Is that why vests are so popular, nylon interior and no friction from no sleeves? Anyone know where to get a reversible microfleece/nylon jacket with pit zips and no heavy knit cuffs for a mid layer?
With a heavy base layer, are you only wearing the insulation layer at lunch or in camp so friction between layers doesn't matter?
