I've got a pair of Greys underlayer type things. Top and legging type bottoms. They're thin but very warm. Made of suitable materials they definitely do stop me from sweating like a beast while I'm mountain climbing rock marks. I don't think you ned to be too 'make-specific' with these types of things, but getting yourself a proper base layer is definitely a great thing to do!! Under my waders, they're quite often all i wear. Have just started now wearing a pair of tracksuit bottoms and a jumper over them - but down to about 5 degrees C, these have done the job nicely on their own. I look like a pansy and quite often have to hide behind the car when I'm changing, but they do the job!!

I have been using "green godess" thermols made by Cormoran.

Any fleece material seems to work well (fleece socks by Snowbee are good).

Marks & Spencers old man thermals. I'm not sure that they actually market them under that description!!
They do an extreme conditions range that include merino wool. i've used them for cycling through the winter, really good. and cheap!!
from memory the long sleeve top is about £15

Missed this one - what we wear under waders in hot and cold weather is a subject I am starting to look into more and more.

Seems that the Helly Hansen baselayer stuff is very good, going to see if I can play around with some of that gear.

And then if it is really cold (like recently), I do tend to wear a really lightweight fleece bib and brace I have had for years - worn it so much that the knees are starting to wear out, will have to get a new one.

Increasingly I am looking more and more outside of the fishing world to find really good clothing items to use for bass fishing - I know that Simms and Patagonia are awesome, but I want to see if some of the gear from the technical outdoor market will work well for us at more reasonable prices.

Lots to find out.

Hardy Greys often say to me that a lot of people who reckon their waders are leaking is actually because they are wearing things like a pair of jeans under them, and all the sweat that gathers makes them feel to wet that the customer is convinced it has to be a problem with the waders.

You bring up a good point Henry.

If you don't wear a wicking material, breathable waders are doomed to failure.
Another big factor is the (DWR) or 'durable water repellent' on the outer skin.

Without this, and it breaks down over time, the transmission of the water vapour
through the multiple layers is hampered.

I believe many aftermarket sprays are available to treat your breathable waders.
