I can't believe you used the words cheap and heely hansen in the same sentence!

Tesco thermals are fine, I use them underneath a Tesco fleece.

AvatarMicrofleece is the way forword, I've had mine a while, and even though my cag is starting to give at the wrists a little ( i think I've got anorexic wrists ) my fleece stays pretty dry even when I've gone over...

You've just set my therapy back a good few years.

To be fair it was Hayden "lightly jogging" in said get-up that inflicted the most damage. That and the lunging....oh god...

AvatarI use helly hansens and they are reletively cheap but they've been letting me down recently probably coz they aren't prowool ones, or it may be because my dry cag isn't that dry anymore, so I have bought myself an elephant thermal top which I have heard will make you feel like you are in a tropical country. We shall find out this weekend when I use it for the first time but i'm expecting good things. As with most things the more you pay the better it is so if you go for the cheap option it will probably either wear out really quick, not be very warm or lose all heat keeping capabilities when wet.

I paddle all year round in boardies, helly, sometimes a microfleece, and then old Palm Cag. You get wet, but that is the point of kayaking. Have admittedly never done a winter week in this gear, but have run some January rivers, and swam, in this attire.
