Finally willing to go $200 to $400 for a nice setup. Thinking gortex or generic. Something thatís not too bulky I can trout fish in now thru January. Thanks for all suggestions.

I use an under armour base layer, a under armour hoodie. On top of that I wear Bass pro shops 100mph gore-tex bibs and rain parka. When I fished Bass tournaments regularly year round I stayed nice and warm with this set up as well as DRY even in the hardest rains. Even stayed warm and dry running 70 mph across the lake in 40 degree weather. Anyway, that's what I use and what I'll continue to use!

My Columbia one piece ski suit that I had for a long time is fantastic. I also have a Walls insulated work suit that works good and is warm but the Columbia blocks the wind better and is waterproof.

After reading this earlier today, I went on ebay, and bought myself a Mustang float coat. Everyone needs to ask themselves what happens if you should end up in the water with all that winter gear on, especially if you fish alone. Get yourself geared up for a cold day of trout fishing, or duck hunting, jump in the deep end of a pool, and see how long you can tread water. First thing that you will probably re-think is those lace up boots.

This is exactly why I wear Mick Boots! Slide them on and off with ease. Not only that but I have wore them all. Rocky, wolverine, timberland, several different lacross boots and the day I put a pair of Mick Boots on my feet I never looked back. Super warm, 100% dry and they are the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. They feel like tennis shoes.

Got up this morning, went out on the pier to lower boat to go trout fishing and changed my mine. Hands where about froze in 5 minutes and the waterway had a 2 to 3 foot chop with white water on top. Wind was blowing 30 or so it seemed. Would have had to wear so many cloths it would have not been fun and might be bad if you feel in and would have got soaked. I will Try again another day. If you went today I hope you got a limit of 27"ers.

Layering is the best option. Start with silky/breathable underwear. Then add a breathable mid-weight type layer. Then add a breathable outer weight layer. Then put a Mustang survival suit on top. For socks wear a breathable light weight under SealSkinz outer sock. Make sure you buy boots one size larger than you need to account for the extra socks. Same is true for your hands...layer with waterproof outer layer. Lastly don't forget your head with a beanie or full baclava. Bottom line is you need to plan on falling in the water and surviving! Links for some of the items below...

Spend the money on good quality items and they will last you for many years and keep you warm and dry!

To your point, we were layered up for January duck hunting 2 years ago. Insulated water proof boots with the works. My son, 12 at the time, knew everything and I told him to watch it in the flooded swamp we were hunting. He took one wrong step and was chest deep in a blink. If I hadn't been near by he would have drowned.

Light weight grundens bibs, Aftco 10K waterproof jacket on top, extra tuff boots. Layering underneath depends on temperatures. Extreme cold like blue finning or trout fishing may have snow gear underneath.

Layering is the key, I usually start with marino wool, then next layer with an outer layer after that that is both wind proof and water proof. I also wear muck boots, I have several boots in different thinsulate levels depending on the weather to keep my feet nice and warm.

Take the advice on survivability in case something happens.

Baffin Trapper boots. Used to use them Bluefin fishing. Rated to -70 and super comfortable. And they won't mark the deck.

I second the under armor cold gear for a base layer. Never was a fan of the big name until I tried them. They breath, and they over lap well at the waist.
I also layer whenever I go out.
Grundens on top.

I picked up a pair of the Huk bibs, great wind break, waterproof and allow to layer as necessary from 80 in the summer to cold in the winter.

Check them out.

If you want waterproof you will need something pvc. Thatís the only thing that will keep you truly waterproof. I have tried many different brands of waterproof materials and none will truly stand up to the waterproof abailities they claim.

^^^^^This. That's why you see all the commercial guys, duck guides and locals wearing that type of gear.

Thanks everyone for the feed back. Sounds like I need to keep doing what Iíve been doing. Iíve been Layering and then using my Calcutta bibs. And I too love my muck boots. They just got right.
