Impossible to answer, being comfortable temperature wise is completely dependent on the individual. Most people would freeze to death dressing like I do. I went two seasons out here in CO wearing nothing but softshells with at most a light base layer and light fleece long sleeve shirt underneath. Subzero temps, whatever. I've just always been naturally hot natured.

Let's just say for the average individual though I'm relatively warm by nature too

A fleece between the Capilene 3 and jacket is a good idea; or at the very least a fleece vest to keep your core warm.

You could always bring the fleece to the mountain and leave it in the car/locker, and grab it if you get cold.

I have a fleece type zip up from uniqlo but it might get wet

Doesn't sound like you have a mid-layer in that mix

They only get soaked if your falling a lot and your crap hangs out under your jacket. Tuck it all in, and tighten your belt. You don't want to have drafts. Keep your neck covered if it's windy, and not just with your jacket. A solid merino base layer will always be beneficial under everything because if you sweat, the capliene will pull it from the base layer and away from your skin and thus you stay warm and never feel wet.

Ps. Snow is not wet when it's that cold.

Goddamnit I thought the capilene WAS the base layer.


I'm screwed. Should I rock the northface or that other fleece (in the photo)
