Thought I'd give an overview of what I'm wearing during the day on a -20°C windy day. From head to toe on my body while skiing:

Icetrek Sabine Hat, made for Icetrek by Satila of Sweden
Julbo Aerospace goggles. These have not fogged/iced once, they are superb for up here.
Icetrek Guru neoprene facemask
Buff
Smitten merino thermal top
Mont Adventure Equipment fleece jacket
Mont shell jacket with wolf/wolverine ruff
Mont underwear
Smitten merino thermal pants
Mont fleece pants
Mont shell pants
OR merino liner mitts
Icetrek Kelvin polar mitts, by Satila
Lum-Tec Combat B watch
SealSkinz socks
Baffin Endurance boots
Flexi Oversize Ski Bindings
Madshus Epoch skis
Climbing skins
Icetrek Atlas sled harness

Below all that is one shoddy body!

-20°C today, mostly overcast and windy. Skied another 22km.
