HOT CHILI'S !!!   One of my old sponsors!! :o

Can't thank the company enough for putting stirrrups on underwear for skiers!!!  Makes a big difference in your boot.

They also work well but for long johns, I prefer all silk.

;D LBH, If I didn't know this was a fishing forum I would seriously wonder what's up...Hehehe.

For cold rainy days I like my BPS Gore Tex rain gear. The jacket liner keeps me warm and the pants over jeans work well too. The only complaint I have is the fleece liner and the shell rubbing together create static if I wear them on a non-rainy day.

well, as a skier, I'll say that the lip of the leg on long johns in your ski boot can be very painful. When you are talking about a performance fit where hours are spent getting that thing as tight to your foot and calf as possible. The Hot chilis stirrup made a world of difference to us skiers. Eliminated that painful lip.

silk,...well,...I just like silk,lol. Seriously though. Very warm, very thin, helps all clothing layered above it slide well also. No binding w/ silk.

34 degrees this morning.  We just got the air that brought snow to some parts of the country earlier this week.  Heading to the lake in 1/2 hr.  Where's my silk,lol.  Gonna need it today.

there was a frost last night. My mom goes to leave the house and calls me out ot scrape off her car??? I was like funny mom, its October. I go out there the thing is covered in frost. Come onnnn. I am going fishing today. I dont have any of this fancy stuff i just layer up. T shirt underneath two longsleeve shirts, underneath and sweatshirt and then if its snowing or is below 40, I will wip out a jacket to top all of this stuff off. For pants just long underwear underneath and then pants. My legs don,t normally get cold. But I have fished before where I cant even feel my hands. KU it might be a good idea to start up a company that makes gloves that keep you warm and are still able to fish in them. :o

I have a pair of Shimano neoprene fishing gloves that keep my hands warm in the winter. They are very light and thin and do an excellent job of keeping your hands warm ,I actually forget I have them on after a while. They have the tips of the fingers with slots in them so you can expose your fingers to cast and then cover them back up. Best $15 I ever spent.

I have done a good bit of hiking in cold weather. One thing I learned was to keep my boot laces snug but not tight. The same goes with the cuffs on my jacket or shirt. When you have your gear on too tight around your ankles or wrists you decrease your circulation. Its not much but your hands and feet get cold a whole lot faster.

Just my 2 cents :o

(No need to have $190 boots and cold feet ;))

lbh sounds like hes broke the bank on his outdoorwear.  hes gonna need to pick up some extra shifts or something to cover his silk/north face expenditures.  i love the north face gear and would like to own more of it but man is it expensive.  if i still skied much id probally bite the bullet.

do you use some of the same stuff for skiing and fishing lbh?  when skiing i usually just where a thin shell on the outside so i suppose it would work for fishing as well.

I am still trying to figure out what I want. It's insane all the different brands/types/etc

I think I want the BPS gore-tex bibs, some boots/shoes that wick away moisture to keep my feet warm and dry, and a BPS gore-tex jacket. I can then wear my fleece pull-over under my jacket, and normal pants under my bibs.

As for my hands, well I guess the old warmer packs will have to do. I have my head and face covered.

Any thoughts on this idea? Will my pants hinder the gore-tex wicking capabilities?
