UnderArmor ColdGear gets the thumbs up from me. I've been wearing it running and xcountry skiing so far this year and it's always warm and dry.

No No No, you guys are all wrong. SMARTWOOL long underware is the best. I use it at work, and while skiing. Sometimes I'll layer with cappeline (sp?) goto [url]www.smartwool.com[/url]

silk long johns are great, very warm and very thin...they're the best for a first layer.

Wow, thanks guys, looks like I have some options here, but I am now wiser than when I started! I am going to look into all of these...

I'd go silk for the first layer, then poly pro on top. It's hard to beat polypro's. They wick moisture away from your body. One important tip to stay warm is to keep from sweating. If you get too hot and sweat, you will soon be cold and you can't get warm until you can dry off. Layers are the way to go. It traps heat in pockets of air inbetween the layers, and you can always take off a layer if you start to get too warm.

One more for Patagonia capilene. REI makes some pretty good generic as well.

This seems to be the overall favorite...Maybe I should buy one of each type mentioned and do some testing [:)]

Another vote for Patagonia Capilene. The stuff is excellent. I also wear their expedition-weight blue long undies (kinda like fleece?) if it colder than Capilene, which is only when I am duck hunting in February or in a blizzard snowskiing. I live in Alabama for God's sake!
