    Interesting contrast, it dropped about 20 degrees overnight and I wore the same stuff.

    Patagonia capilene midweight long underwear
    Patagonia capilene zip tee
    PI amphib tights
    Canari fleece jersey
    goretex shell jacket
    Nashbar lobster claw mitts w/polypro liners
    Polypro socks
    Lake MXZ300 boots
    LG power cap + helmet with LG cover
    Smith slider glasses


    At +10 F I needed to open the pit zips on my shell after the first hill, feet and hands were fine, head and face no problem. At -10 F the body core is still fine, feet and legs are good, my fingers are getting a little cold after 30 minutes and I definitely have a cold head. Serious icing problems on the eyewear, I use contact lenses and I know from skiing that at subzero temperatures I get problems with my eyes tearing and then freezing so I need to cover them with something. Add another head layer and time to go to goggles I guess.

    Wow that's -10C? or -10F...Regardless, you must have great circulation to stay warm on those temps...either that or heavy cycling on the ascents.
