    UA is by far superior IMO. Buy one set that will last a long long time or buy a set that lasts a couple of years. My UA has been worn 20 plus days a year and i have had it for at least 6 years and still looks like new.

If you can find a source of Merino wool within your price range that's the ticket but if not I second the Cabelas suggestion. Also remember that most base layers(including Merino) come in different "weights" and you'll want the heavier for more warmth.
    You can wear a thin merino wool base with a heavier over and create a micro-climate. I really prefer it to any synthetic and it doesn't stink-up like them.
    The problems of today cannot be solved the with same of thinking that created them.
