i switch between polypropylene long underwear and microfleece underwear for really cold days, work pants and my insulated overalls, usually a polypro long sleeve shirt, work tshirt, fleece sweater and my double lined work jacket over top. gets the job done!

Whats this polypro you speak of?

its synthethic material, wicks the sweat off your body a lot quicker so you dont get so cold, got it for mounteering like 7 years ago and its the best stuff i have ever bought. usually costs about twice the price of the regular cotton stuff.

polypro is nice stuff -- keeps you nice and warm, but it needs to be in contact the skin to be most effective (ie. go free-balling & no undershirt)

Buy a nice pair of shoes & socks -- oh and a warm beanie / hat to stop heat loss.

lol ya i know it sucks, i'd give that a try, could even double them up (polypro and fleece). i wouldnt recommend them for under your bunker gear, they dont hold up to heat very well since they are really just a type of plastic

Helly Hanson makes nice stuff. Base layer and thermal layer. Old school wool Stanfields work great too!

+1 on the Helly Hanson.

I work outside in northern Alberta and i don't know what I would do without my Helly Hanson Base layer. The cost is a little higher, but it is well worth it. I also wear winter coveralls which make a huge difference, but I was surviving -20 days with the base layer a sweater and normal coveralls.

The trick is breathablility especially if you are wearing the stuff & being active. Sweat is what makes you cold. I dress differently depending on many factors. Wet cold, dry cold, moving, standing, etc. I will swap my layers out too, mid day, socks especially if I'm moving a lot. My outer layer, coat & pants are insulated but with vents. You open them up to let the moisture escape, especially if you are moving. You can shut em down when you stop moving.

Check the labels or description of what the item is made of. I do not use any cotton whatsoever since it holds moisture. Not good! Most Under Armor Type shirts are 100% polyester. Most wicking material is a mix of polyester & spandex. The spandex lets it breathe better. Socks with Merino Wool 80% & up with a mix of spandex & polyester work the best imo. All the winter training with the Mountain Division taught me something.

It doesn't have to be expensive either. I shop Target, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Dick Sporting Goods, Gander Mtn or Kohls-brand for my layering stuff. Believe or not, Kohls, Wal Mart & Target have UA knock offs for 10-15 bucks that works just the same as the $50 UA ones. (more mod money). Happy Shopping
