    It's expensive, but it will be the best gear you have ever laid hands on. I have a parka and rarely am out in weather cold enough to be comfortable! Usually it is too warm unless I am just standing around (forget riding a snowmachine!).

    That's what I am afraid of. Generally, if I am out, I am moving... So a no-go for anykind of activity huh?

    I can't speak for the bibs, but I have the lightest weight liner for my parka and it is REALLY warm. If they build their bibs the same way I would venture to say they will be warmer than what you want.

    I think you are probably right. I prefer to layer anyway... If anyone is looking there are two pair of bibs for sale on Craigslist, size small.

    I always wanted a set, but could never afford it.

    I have the boots, bibs, parka, mittens, and baclava (sp). Without question, they more than ample warmth. Have used them at -40 ice fishing on Chandalar Lake with a 30 knot wind and was fine.

    The only draw back to their gear is the bulk, but that is what provides the warmth. So if bulk doesn't bother you, they are the best thing since sliced bread to me.

    You've seen me eat. There's no way I can fit into a small anything. :-)
