I find that unless it's below freezing or I'm going for a 2+ hr Z1/Z2 ride I don't need any base layer at all with my Gore Xenon SO jacket or else I melt. In hindsight I may have been better sticking with the Airjack I returned as it has a more breathable back so probably would've helped with regulating temperature a bit more.
