Even though winter has not yet showed itself around here, this is what I usually wear:

HEAD
- Buff windstopper or the insulated hood ski jacket
- Buff windstopper (2) around my neck and over my nose (I love these things)

TORSO
- Icebreaker Merinowool base-layer and sweater
- Either a primaloft insulated gore-tex ski jacket
- Or a down liner with a gore-tex hardshell (more versatile)

LEGS
- If it's -10C or colder some merinowool leggings
- Waxed windresistant hiking trousers (quasi-casual looking)

FEET
- Smartwool hiking socks
- Leather hiking boots (Hanwag Yukon)

HANDS
- Gore winstopper gloves (up until -5C when winter preogresses)
- Gore-tex skiing gloves with fleece inner gloves

The perfect gloves are a bit of a personal quest of mine. I'm going to experiment with a few different liners this winter to try my personal best combination.
