Two words: Wind Shear.

Awesome technology. No matter what you get, make sure at least one layer has Wind Shear. I can hold my arm out my truck window doing 75 and not feel anything. Really helps keeps the cold out.

It's a lining Cabelas offers in some of their hunting apparel.

For stand hunting I would consider getting a heater suit. It is like a sleeping bag.

For one, it gets down to 15 or so everyonce in a while. But I do hunt in Ohio yearly..

One word, Coveralls. Nothing keeps you warmer than a pair of coveralls.

I dress in layers. Nothing big and heavy. I start with performance wear like under armour, medium weight. If real cold a larger pair over those. Next a light shirt with a heavy sweat shirt. Next I have a camo sweater jacket plus a jacket liner. The outer layer is a light over sized jacket. The key is to have everything loose fitting. For my feet I have 800 gram insulated boots plus Artic shields if needed. I could go lighter on the boots with the shields. If your feet get cold a couple hand warmers in the Artic shields will keep them warm. A good hand muff make big gloves unnecessary. For my legs I wear insulated bibs. Coveralls are to bulky. Under Armour face shield is nice. I like the hinge. We are required to wear blaze orange so I have a orange cap and 2x orange vest. I also where a light orange shirt in my layers. So if I need to track or gut a deer and I take a couple layers off I still have orange. I hike in about 20 minutes to my stand. I pack in a couple of my layers, bibs, artic shields, sweater, liner, so I do not over heat on the way in. Last year I sat comfy all day in -10 to 15 degrees. I got out once to help my son gut his deer.
