If you can afford it, buy every single piece of clothing made of 100% Merino Wool. From your socks to your Hat. It is amazing the difference Merino makes.

I'm a mixture of old and new. UA as a base. Depending upon the temp either fleece or wool (I also have different weights of wool from Army surplus to King of the Mountain) as the insulating layer. I often wear a Walls insulated rain parka and bibs, or an old Woolrich down parka with insulated bibs. When it is really cold I have an insulated wool parka and bibs. I use a nylon wind breaker over the insulating layer and under the outer layer.

Hands and feet are important. As I age I find my feet and hands tend to get cold first. My old felt lined pac boots work just fine combined with liner and wool socks. I also spray my feet with unscented anti-perspirant deodorant to prevent sweating feet.
