1. UA Cold Gear 4.0 Underware (tops, and bottoms)
2. UA Cold Gear Capture
3. UA Cold Gear Hoody

I'm sold on the UA stuff, I've yet to find something better. I'm a huge freeze baby.

The base is most important. Cover your ears/head, and keep your feet warm also.

I'm also a fan of a Muff with a few hand warmers, as I don't like wearing gloves (unless very thin)

Keep your feet head and neck warm and you should be ok with what you're wearing

I forgot to mention i wore my white knuckle fleece beanie which kept my head toasty with my hood to my sweatshirt up...my head was fine, but my feet did get cold.

I told my wife how excited I was because this weekend I managed to stay warmwithout shaking all weekend - in the mid 30's.
My hike is about a mile in so I don't even dress up until I'm under my tree. All my clothes are tied onto thepack. On the hike out I'm wearing sweat pants, a long sleeved shirt, and a warm cap. I'm a little cold at first, especially if it's windy, but anything to keep from sweating. Under the tree I take off the socks (theyare damp just from sweating)and replace with 2 pair of dry warm wool socks, replace the t-shirt with about 5 layers.Head gear is a fullknitted head cover and then a fleece cover on top of that. I hope the same works forthe 20's because I don't think I could wear much more.

I don't usually wear too much

Nike cold gear undershirt
maybe tights or long underwear
poly propylene tops and bottoms
camo on top of that
if it is real cold i will put on a pair of jeans and a camo sweat shirt also

When its cold and windyno matter what underlayers you wear, make sure the top is windproof and you'll be 10x warmer than without a windproof layer.

Absolutely right.

Today I did another all day sit. Conditions were close to yesterday's as in my previous post. 15mph wind, high in the mid 30's, and I had 5 layers on yesterday but was ffffreezing. Today I just added a windbreaker right underneath the outermost layer(windbreaker pants also)and voila, night and day difference!
