Default Cold weather gear - what do you use?

Let's say it's zero to 25 out, that range. You're going shooting, clays or targets, and are going to be outside for 2 to 3 hours. What do you wear? What works well to keep you warm?

Humm? Zero degrees? I will be wearing a very light shirt and house shoes. I will be reloading shells for a better day to shoot.

LMAO!!!!!!

well since anything below 25 degrees is not likely, it depends on whether it's sunshine outside, or windy. windy and overcast or drizzle, i'll be inside.

25 degrees and bright sunshine and little or no wind, usually a light jacket and thin gloves are usually enough for me.

Layers. Synthetics in layers.

Danner thinsulate lined boots, Thorlo socks. Polypropylene long underwear on the lower half, Columbia long sleeve dry fit shirt under wool flannel shirt fleece jacket with a Gortex shell. A wool felt Stetson or a fleece beenie. I have a few gloves I rotate around.

I have found Rocky and Mossy Oak from Walmart to work well. They have thermals that are fleece lined and slippery on the outside so they don't bunch up with the friction under my clothes. Bottoms I just wear them with jeans, the top I throw another long sleeved shirt over and my Schmidt (Carhart style jacket) from tractor supply.
The most important thing for me is keeping my feet warm, wool socks with my Ariat leather hiking boots.
Then next important is my ears, I wear a hat with sharpa lining and the ear flaps that I can snap up if I'm wearing ear muff style ear protection.
I havnt found the perfect glove yet though, I probably have a dozen pair. I just take my thinnest pair and layer with some plastic medical gloves underneath.

My husband splurged on Under Armor cold gear this year, shirt and gloves but he's working 7 days a week and hasn't had a chance to try them outside yet. In my opinion, the gloves still felt too bulky to have much dexterity with my fingers.

Well that would be a dang heat wave in these parts

For shooting suggest lots of lose fitting layers. Thermals and jeans or insulated hunting pants/ Carharts

If it is that cold, and I AM outside, I would surely be wearing handcuffs or a coffin. BRRRRR!
