As the weather turns fall-like in Mass, I like to wear long sleeve tees under a golf shirt as a base layer.  I prefer compression style and Hbe used the Under Armor ones but they always have that annoying logo AND our expensive

Anyone have any good experience here at a relatively reasonable price point for a white long sleeve base layer?

I’ve got a Nike one and multiple Under Armour compression mock shirts. I like the under armour better. Reebok makes them too, but I don’t think they’re all that much cheaper.

Layer 8 are good and pretty cheap. Can be found at TJ Maxx for around $10. They offer different weights as well.

I don’t like the compression for cold weather. I Buy the “fitted” stuff. As long as it’s warm, either way will work.

Anything works really. C9 from Target, Starter from Walmart, and as above plenty of stuff at TJMaxx, Marshall’s, Ross etc.

It's actually the opposite, Cold Gear is for cold weather and heat gear is for warm weather.

To answer OP - The best is the UA Fitted Mock, tight enough to keep all the warmth, not too tight to compress or impact swing.

Perfect under a golf shirt, as a base layer with a pullover, or sometimes I just wear the mock with an insulated vest on days between 40-50

I love the UA base layer. I wear them all winter long. They work well for golf because they seem to move freely.
I bought a couple a few months ago because they were cheap. Summer shoppers don't need warmth

Same for me. Fitted over compression. Unfortunately I don’t think UA makes the fitted any more.

I like the thick compression stuff from Marshall's.  Feels very tight and restricted but by the time you drive to the course, it loosens up and it's all good.

There are a ton of brands that make undergarments to keep you warm and are suitable for golf.  Unless you are playing in snow, don't go crazy.  Some of that stuff is way too effective for golf.

I hear your comments about Under Armour but for me, UA were the guys that pretty much got compression gear into golf, there is a reason why.
