Looking for an extremely light weight layer similar to the USGI fleece. I have the older black version. Looking for something lighter and able to compact more to be more ruck friendly. Something to use under both gortex and a BDU type shirt. Under 200.00. Anybody have any suggestions?
Check out the PCU L2 gridded fleece. It is a very versatile insulation layer. Since it is gridded, it breathes really well, but still keeps you warm. Best when worn under a light jacket. Unless you want to ventilate, then expose it to the wind. Works best in moderate weather, around 20-30 deg.
Also, check out the L4 windshirt. It is extremely lightweight, and is surprisingly warm. Especially when working hard. It also breathes well, but cuts the wind as well. Works great under a cammie shirt or other light jacket. Works best when you are on the move, in moderate, windy conditions.
You can find them both pretty reasonably on ebay. In fact, for your budget, you could almost get 2 of each.

I have a gander mountain branded “heavyweight” performance fabric that has sort of a turtleneck collar. No neck zipper or pockets like the fleece. It is thicker than general compression stuff. More like polartec 100 ( where the black fleece jacket is 300). I love it.
I heartily recommend the Minus33 brand line of Merino wool under garments. I’ve worn various weights and configurations of them at several tactical training outings now and they have been durable and comfortable.
The Minus33 Merino Wool Men’s Ticonderoga Lightweight Crew might work for what you’re describing.
