Insulated underwear first layer.
Regular camo jeans or button down shirt second layer.
Possibly a third shirt if very cold. I actually wear those performance shirts that most wear fishing because they dry fast. They are thin. Breathe well. And i can delayer easily.
Insulated bib.
Jacket with insulated liner.
Full headcover facemask.
Neck gaiter.
Beanie.
Liner socks.
Giant wool warm socks.
Ultra insulated boots a size or two larger.
Thin liner gloves.
Heavy over gloves.

My toes get cold first so i have the biggest warmest boots they make. They look like astronaut boots. But they are the warmest i have found. I can sit in a tree stand about 3 hours in zero degrees (hunted Wisconsin and Ohio and Illinois a lot). The rest i just dont get that cold.

Nothing special. Most of my gear is 10-20 years old.

I use SKRE extreme mountain gear. Clothing brand. Cheaper than Sitka. The layering system works wonders. Super light and great fit for bow hunters.

Following this description, apparently no pants is ok. ;-)

Definitely layering is the way to go... I agree that the feet are the first to go. When I hunted Mn... I used toe warmer packs but they don't last super long in rubber boots.. maybe 2 hours then the use up the oxygen. I also tried the boot covers but they didn't help too much. Seems like once your boots start getting cold you can't really warm them up by putting a cover on them.. get the best boots you can get with the most insulation.
