When its real cold, I wear my artic shield bibs and jacket, throw in some hand warmers, toe warmers and even the body warmers that stick to the inside of your shirt and I am good to go.

It's not October gear, but it's not that bad actually.

Coldest I've hunted in here is 3deg.

In those (or anything CLOSE to that) I wear:

Muck boots (Woody max)
Wool socks
Patagonia silks on the bottom
UA coldgear on the top
Fleece pullover (top)
Wolfskin pants (unlined)
Predator fleece vest
Wolfskin jacket (unlined)
Fleece stocking cap
UA coldgear facemask
UA coldgear gloves

I also use a HSS hand muff with hot hands inside.

Rarely have issues with my feet, body or legs getting cold. What KILLS me in temps <20deg is my hands....if I have to hold my bow for extended periods of time.

Since I work construction outside all year and we might be the only idiots that will be out there when it's 15 below. I bought this under layer called chili pepper, it's made for skiing and outdoor stuff like that. Then i wear jeans over that and then my camo suit pants. For the top I wear a fleece and my hunting suit jacket over the chili pepper top. For socks their called wigwam which I like the best or get a sock that is a marino wool. When it's that cold out I wear my Lacrosse ice king boots which are winter boots. when it's above 0 I'll wear my hunting boots. I will start sweating at work at 15 below but Just sitting for hunting I can stay warm enough to be out there all day.

Naturally temps depend on how I dress, but when it's extreme, like below zero I wear the following:
Thermax
UA 3.0 Cold Gear
Merino Wool Underwear
WolfSkin with Comformax wind barrier

I really think wearing a Good Wind Barrier is one of the most important steps in dressing proper for cold weather sets.
