First, thank you for this list. Your experience + Richard and Roger's data have really been a huge help in hammering out my winter gear closet.
You said you bring lots of glove liners of various weights. I discovered last winter that as you said, there is no magic glove system, and I had cold, wet hands for my two trips. This winter, I was thinking of 3-4 pairs of thin merino liners to swap out, a pair of MLD Event rain mitts, and a MYOG pair of VB mitts as the core of my handwear, supplemented by different weights of fleece mid-layers depending on the temps expected(OR PL 400 weights, midweight powerstretch gloves, OR snowline mitts, and so on) What are the weights of the liner gloves you bring? I had 50wt power stretch last winter that I couldn't get dry (over 24 hrs)using your system, which is why I'm leaning to 3-4 pairs of thin merino this year.
Thanks to you and/or anyone else who can advise me.
