Sure! Here's what I wore, in order.

Top layer:
LD Comfort, electric vest without collar, light fleece pullover, Aerostitch Darien jacket

Bottom layer:
LD Comfort, Aerostitch Darien pants

On the first 2 legs, when the temps were tipping below 20 here and there, I wore electric chaps. They kept my legs warm, but I didn't wear them the rest of the trip after that. I don't usually have trouble with legs or feet getting cold. Anyway, I wore those over the LD Comfort, and under the riding pants.

During the coldest legs I wore the "Aerostitch Ultrasuade Triangle" to cover my neck and chin. I am a big fan of this product.

I recently bought new boots, and this was the first real trip with them. They were great. Alpinestars Waterproof Scout boots. I have a large collection of gloves, but wore one of two pairs the entire trip. Lined leather. Not waterproof, but that wasn't necessary this trip.
