What does everyone use to layer for cold weather(I am talking about 30 degree and below.) Less bulky the better and needs to breath to. O ya money's tight so the less epensive brand new things I have to buy is better. I have Cold Gear that is my base layer. I figured I needed some type of good windblocking layer next. What does everyone else use for these kind of temperatures? Thanks

I wear UA all-season gear as my base, then I wear a long sleeve cotton shirt, then (most importantly) I wear a turtleneck to keep my neck warm and to block the wind. Then I have my coat as my final layer. If it is really cold I will put my insulated liner in my coat as well.

If money is tight....man you wasted good cash on Cold Gear.

Middle layers windproof? What purpose does that serve? I woud want windproof outerwear....preferably water resistant.

Fleece is a great middle layer....a vest is good for when it is not bitter, a jacket/shirt when it is colder.

Most overlooked item? Sweated feet. Take pair of socks to change into if feet will sweat on walk in...will keep you on stand much longer.

My feet are my biggest problem, I found that a polyester/nylon (moisture wicking layer) sock under my wool socks work the best for me. But my feet sweat just sitting still even if they are cold.:confused:

ON stand...lightweight polypro as base, followed by heavy military polypro, fleece layer if needed, followed by good insulated coveralls. Fleece baclava w/wool scarf around neck. Insulated cap on top. arctic shield or boot blankets for the feet.
