Dad and I are heading up to Prince George, British Columbia for a Grizzly/Moose combo guided hunt for the end of October - beginning November 2010.
As for gear I could really use some help on what would be the best route to go with. Im unsure of temperatures at that time of year but I would assume it would be between below freezing and in the single digits (celcius). I tend to sweat/heat up ALOT so I have to watch what gear I get. What I'm looking for are the following and would like some opinions on other gear:
-considering going with Under Armour cold gear 2.0 top. I have HH tops and bottoms and they work well for posting but may be to hot for walking as they are the warmest of their line.
-considering going with some Berber or Fleece sweaters/vests. Not sure what make or where to get. Maybe Cabelas brands???
-I just bought Columbia Wool Jacket and Bibs. They seem really heavy and bulky and probably wont be able to do much walking in them. I do want something quiet and I really like wool, fleece or berber. Need something silent for stalking. Waterproof isn't a main concern as I will purchase a packable rain suit.
-Looking for a packable rain suit and I read a review on here and was thinking of going with the Cabelas MT050 or somethingl ike that IF it's packable.
Basically what I think (may not be right) is wearing a base layer good for hiking, fleece/berber midlayer sweater/pullover with a windstopper (windshear) and I think a good vest overtop would be good for extra warmth (wool/fleece/berber) but with no winshear as I dont think I would need to layers of windshear. Am I on the right track? I'm so nervous about going on this trip and having the wrong gear...could really spoil the trip especially with it's costing $$$$$.
I know this is a lot to ask but I am doing my homework by searches and reading posts but any more help would be much appreciated! Thank you!
