How are you planning to use the three-layer system? If you are hiking strenuously or climbing mountains, you will probably find that you are overdressed and soon to be overheated. If you are standing around, then three layers might be OK.

Experienced active hikers learn to dress light to avoid overheating and excess sweating. Then when you stop, add a layer which absorbs the sweat and you'll be nice and dry when you restart activity.
