Thermal Gear and Layering...

If you could make a wish list of layering and thermal gear that you would want what would it consist of???? Im going to dry top and dry pant route and would like to know what some of you think is the best layering...

please explain what you would be wearing right now if you were wearing dry top and bottoms or even what you wear under your drysuit....

i know im getting the ir union suit, but i know thats not going to be sufficient enough layering...

you can always go with a wetsuit under the drytop, those things are crazy warm.
I use a drysuit and normally just wear a pair of poly pro underneath with a pair of wool socks if it gets cold I will add another layer and if it is really cold then I wear a fleece.

I wear base layer thermals, wetsuit, fleece, dry top/pants- in that order. Then wool socks and hat. When it's really cold, I've worn my snowpants over it, but the union suit should cover that.
