What do you guys like for the winter? I have always turned to Carhartt for my gear.

I too wear Carhartt's.

They are made from thick material, it seems to last longer than regualr jeans, or 'knock-off' type jackets, bibs or the like.

Long johns, jeans, turtleneck and a flannel shirt, I carry my Arctic weight Carharts with me as well (bibs and jacket). I ve been wearing them the last couple of days trimming trees down by the lake in the wind and they've kept me nice and warm, and I haven't even dug my long johns out yet!!

Now if they could only make them in camoflauge for hunting.....

LOL!

Carhartts are just plain cold! They wear like rhino skin but they are not warm at all..... even my "Arctic" version jacket! When I was a lineman, winter punished me in those things until I turned to man-made materials. The man-mades will tear easier but they are light and darn warm! The trick was to get a thin "synthetic" jacket as a liner and then put the Carhartt over it for the abuse and abrasion.
As for boots, anything with gore-tex or the like and Thinsulate! Lightweight, warm, and agile to walk in. Canadian style packs boots are clumsy, cold, and heavy. Polypropylene underwear is good too!

Polypro thermals with waterproof skipants, thinsalate snowboots ($40.00 Walmart). Polypro thermal top with cotton shirt and thermal hooded sweatshirt. Carhartt on seat next to me (cant wear it or i'll sweat like a pig) rain jacket behind seat. All this stuff no wonder I plow with the window all the way down most of the time!
