    what clothes for 20-40 degree weather

    Just curious I'm looking to update my clothing and looking for something that will work well for down as low as 20 or a little below that and up to low 40's. I have a set of good base layer under armour cold gear. Looking to add some layers looking for any advice on what to add. Thanks

    Depending you what you want to spend. I woulds say. Sitka Gear Fanatic line will cover you perfect in those temps . Or the Sitka Stratus line will work. Or if you dont want to spend that much. Predator camo makes a few items that will work for you . Send me a Pm if you have any questions on any of this gear.

    Wool is the best I have found. Minus 33 layers are excellent. The key in those temps is not to sweat and if you do, get the sweat away from your skin. The UA is a good base layer (over priced but good). Then wool layer(s) Then a wind blocking outer layer should do it for you. I really like Cabelas brand Wooltimate series for an outer layer when its 40 or less.

    I am not sure if the brand matter so much as does the hunting conditions. Will you be sweating, hiking, hunting all day, will you have a pack to stow your extra clothes. I use all technical moisture wicking layers to stay warm and dry and my outer layers are my camo. All my hunting is spot and stalk so i have to shed layers as the day warms or i start exerting myself.

    Fleece...manufacturer doesn't matter, camo pattern doesn't matter and personally I wouldn't get goretex. The sweat can't get out as fast as they say it does. Fleece is warm, light weight and breathes well. You might consider a light weight vest and a jacket to go over it. Layering is the key to hunting in various weather conditions. The vest under the jacket keeps your core warm without bulking sleeves. I keep a Cabelas space rain jacket in my pack just in case it rains.

    honestly as said above layers are best, but i still think it all depends on what your are used to, for me as long as i am able to keep my feet, hands, head and face warm, the rest really doesnt matter, ill go out on a late season hunt with hat gloves mask, dry wool socks but be in the same gear as i hunt with in early season just with some baselayers under it

    Layers and moisture control are most important at those temps. I would walk to the stand in a thin layer of merino with gloves and hat to keep the sweating to a minimum. Once the stand was setup I would add the layers as needed. Taking you 20 degree temp, I would add a long sleeve vintage wool shirt/jacket, then either a wool or down vest, and then my ASAT Ultimate jacket. For bottoms I would add my ASAT ultimate pants and if really feeling cold I might add another layer of loose fitting wool bottoms before adding the pants. Once sitting in the stand I would loosen my boots a lot so as not to restrict blood flow and if necessary change into drier socks. I will also put on my balaclava and if necessary a beanie to go with it. Lastly don't forget your hands. I have normal light weight gloves and then put them into either my hand muff worn around my waist or something new I will be trying is the Grey Wolf Woolens gauntlets the fold back out of the way for the shot.

    Side note I mention ASAT because its what I have, but any decent jacket with wind blocking properties will work for you.

    Honestly I think the fundamentals of layering are easy. However the selection of clothes and brands is endless.

    You want a wicking base layer, and insulation layer or layers and a layer to protect you from the elements like wind and rain. Depending on the weather condition you add or remove the insulation layers.

    Layer 1 Wicking - Wool is my favorite
    Layer 2 Insulation - Fleece, wool are my favorites
    Layer 3 Element protection - wind blocking garment of your choice. Waterproof if you will be hunting in wet climate.
