Default Do I have enough layers?

I am trying to dress properly this season and am not sure if this is enough to keep me warm. I have Under Armour cold gear for a base layer (top and bottom). I have a Smartwool sweater, and Special Blend jacket/pants.

My question is do you think this is enough to keep me warm? I'm 5'7" about 130lbs so I don't exactly have a lot of fat or natural insualtion So I guess is do you think what I have will be enough? If not, what would you add as a another top/bottom layer?

Dude its all preference, and of course depends on the weather. I usually just wear a tshirt and a shell jacket. Maybe if its really cold I'll throw a hoodie on under that.

i consistently go with, starting in and going out, UA Cold gear and north face base layers--> a regular teeshirt-->Hoodie--->Coat and pants. i also wear wool socks, and under armour hood, and a beanie.


when you go boarding you can always take a layer off, sometimes you cant put one on though.

Ya I have the UA hood and UA coldgear socks as well. Sounds like we both wear about the same thing, except you wear about a t-shirt more.

I usually sport midweight longsleeve baselayer, like patagonia capilene 2 and then my snowboard jacket, which is insulated. This is good to like 10 degrees, any lower and I'll throw a light weight fleece on and neck warmer

Pants are always 686 smartys and lightweight baselayer.

I normally wear a t shirt, hoody, and jacket and end up either taking off my jacket or hoody during the day.
I prefer wearing gym shorts under my pants instead of sweatpants.
However I will bust out my ua mock turtleneck and leggings when the temp drops below zero or close to it.

Pretty much the only thing on my body that ever gets cold are my toes.

It all depends on weather and the person, but based on what you said you're wearing, you'll be fine (unless you're always cold like my GF).

as mentioned before it is about preference but what you have sounds about like what I'm usually wearing. I could probably do with less but like others said you can always take something off.
