I have 2 pairs of UA Cold Gear that I can use as a base layer.

I've never tried a Base Layer + Shell, but I would think it wouldn't be warm enough on a -15 C day.

1. For a base layer, is UA Cold Gear sufficient or should I look at something else?

2. If I need a mid-layer, what do you suggest for a mid-layer?

3. I have a this jacket.

What pant/shell would you recommend?

Sport Check has these pants:

Men's Freedom Insulated Pants.

They are listed at $200 with 20% off. I have another coupon for an additional 20% off bring it down to ~$120.

Should I pull the trigger?
