Under Armour Cold Gear is always the first thing I throw on this time of year. I am a firm believer in UA. After those, I throw on a light fleece shirt and my Rocky fleece lined pants. Another two layers of UA on top, then my Whitewater Outdoors Sherpa Pro Series bibs and I'm ready to roll. I add a UA fleece vest if really cold and then my Rocky fleece jacket. I've added enough quality clothing that I can finally hunt cold weather without being cold!!!

I always wear UA as the base layer against my skin, then a regular long sleeve, thermal(s), then another long sleeve, then my coat. My coat has sleeves that zip off and i always bow hunt with the left arm unzipped so it's not gonna be in the way of my string.

Cabelas silk baselayers, then a layer of regular thermal underwear (long-johns)... then my normal hunting pants and shirts, and bibs/jacket outerlayer. Baselayering is one department that I am really lacking in, but I don't think it has ever been a make-it or break-it item for me when it comes to hunting. I'm pretty warm-blooded.

UA cold gear then another thermal base layer. Next is boiled wool pants and either a fleece shirt our UA hoodie. Last layer was just a shell. Since I got the timberfleece 360 for Christmas I need to figure out my layering again.

For days in the mid 20's to low 30's, I wear UA base layers, a UA cold gear mesh loose fit shirt, UA Hundo Fleece, UA 1/4 zip hundo camo fleece, then my outer layer UA Cumberland Jacket. Down below, I usually wear UA cold gear, a pair of thermal bottoms, and my cabelas windshear fleece pants. One pair of wool socks. I stay nice and toasty in my stand, especially if I have a beanie on my head.

This stuff too. Not as good as the above but still better than UA.

I have some thin base layer which I cannot remember the brand. Came from Dick's or Gander. Medallist? or something like that. Then I wear the Rocky thermals over top of it. Can be found at Rocky Mtn Outlet or Walmart. Then I throw on my regular hunting gear. I have some pants that are killer in the cold. Fleece lined and waterproof. Just got the Cabelas windsheer Legacy Fleece for Christmas top/bottom and will probably try these the next hunt with the two layers of base. Feet are still my issue. Have some 1600gr thinsulate boots from Sportsman's Guide and really think my wetland Muck boots are warmer. Haven't figured that one out yet. Hot hands in the boots are my next step.

well you have to consider that the clothes are built for you ( size, shape length etc) ...and they will last you most of your lifetime...

my plan this year was to really get some good camo gear. I am tired of buying cheap stuff and mix matching everything together. I went togander on sunday and got some mid weight stuff with the gander name and it seems really thin to be mid weight. I think am going to take it back.

I like the rocky stuff alot, they seem to make some really good clothes. I have some rocky stuff for Baselayers but it doesnt seem to really keep you warm.
