You cant beat layering.
A fleece liner is a must for me. Fleece dries quickly and doesn't hold moisture.
Wind barrier of Gortex is my outer layer on wet rainy days.
And i also like those battery heated vests. The battery seconds as a charging pack for my cell phone. The heat the vest gives off is enough yo take the chill off. I wear them pretty much every fall to late winter outing now.

Thanks for posting the results Hank. Unfortunately, we get a lot of spammers on here and ask a single question and then ghost on us. Since you're upland hunting, have you considered layering for your jacket/shirts? Upland hunting can mean a lot of hiking and layers would be nice if you get too warm from all the hiking.

I use layering too. Hard to beat if you're hiking a lot, even in cold weather.

To add
i use Duluth Trading post polyester long johns and top. I start with light wt. Duluths underwear doesn't hold moisture and that is key to staying warm.
I also wear a pair of knee high Jobst sock followed by a good wool sock.
i pretty much wear Mucks Woody knee high neoprene boot year long.
If really cold I'll switch to sorels.

Then i wear a chamois shirt. I have light wta to heavy wt as it gets colder.

And dont forget your hat. Ball cap toKromer cap late winter
And i like neck gaters. Gteat to wear when i sit.

Most times when i walk in my shirt is open my coat znd vest strapped to my pack as i want to dump body heat and not sweat. Moisture makes you cold.
As i cool down i start layering.back up.


I also have fleece fingerless gloves and i use Hot hands gor hand warmers. I aleays have a few packs in my pack.
