Any suggestions on all of this and what kinds of Pants.
Best setup is splash pants (IR) and either capeline (Patagonia), thick skin (IR), or Union Suit (IR).
Why wear 3 layers when one will do? There's nothing on the market that's warmer than expedition weight capeline or the warm IR stuff. Personally, if it's really, really cold, I wear the capeline. But, I can't tell a difference until it's a long day and I'm spending time in the water or portaging.
