Will I be warm?

Ok so I know I'm new to the forum and starting a new topic but I have been working on my layering system for this year as appears to wearing an all in one style jacket with a synthetic shirt underneath. This summer I purchased an air blaster ninja suit as a base layer, am arcteryx atom sv mid layer, a marmot soft shell, and an arcteryx stingray goretex shell. I'm wearing burton cargo pants, smart wool socks and a helmet. My question is will I be warm in the north east. I live in CT but frequently go to Vermont and massechusetts to snowboard. Just feels so light and unmarshmellow-like. I wasn't planning on wearing the soft shell and the atom sv together. I do tend to run very cold though. Any advice?

You might actually be too warm.

I ride in the NE also and when it's 0 degrees I wear, something like the ninja suit, a thin mid layer and a down vest, and a shell.

I know it's possible to be too warm. But I'm usually the one shivering in a group of people standing outside while everyone is talking about how nice it is. When I layer up with just the ninja suit fleece and shell it feels like if I were on a mountain I would freeze my tits off. Is this just because I'm not used to such a layering system ?

imo the softshell is sort of silly in that setup. if you have an atom sv under a shell jacket you'll be fine. hot even.

Yeah, you should be good. I ride in New Hampshire, and there's always one or two days where that wouldn/t be enough. If you wear leggings, a long sleeve, sweatshirt, and jacket you'll probably be sweating. I was wearing just two sweatshirts on monday because I forgot my coat and I was a little warm, and it was right around 32 degrees all day. Keep an extra sweatshirt in the car. It's better to be over prepared than under.
