Looking for advise on winter layering system.
I have a Arcteryx Rho AR Top for my baselayer, the Arc’teryx Gamma MX Hoody for my midlayer, and then the
Patagonia rain/wind for my othershell.
Will that block the wind and keep me warm while I'm hiking in 0 degree weather? But what about when I'm standing around or at basecamp?
I feel I'm missing something. I've looked at the Mont-bell Alpine Down. I'll be in the White Mountains (NH) climbing Mt. Washington, and then in Yellowstone the first week of March. I am assuming conditions on Mt. Washington to be below 0. I would like to stay with a down jacket. What's the difference between a Parka, and a Jacket? Isn't 800 fill, 800 fill?
