I am sure this has been asked before but just in case it hasn't.
New to AK, moved here last winter (OCT 08) and now am living in Glennallen. Experienced -30 last winter in Chugiak with my East Coast Jacket (LL BEAN parka) and did okay with that. I know that in Glennallen I am to expect -50 and maybe -60 so I wanted something a lil' bit warmer than the LL Bean jacket I now own.
Mostly will use the Jacket for hiking /hunting /and just basic everyday survival. Kinda looking for the ultimate utility do everything winter jacket.
And while you guys are at it, maybe throw in some winter pants, gloves, hats, etc recommendations.
