I like merino wool for my base & mid layers. Anything with gore windstopper is great for blocking the wind. I love my polar tec fleece. It does a good job of blocking the wind, is warm, sheds water pretty well & dries fast when it gets wet. When is cold & the wind is blowing I wear my Sitka Stratus beanie. By far the best & warmest stocking hat Iíve ever worn. I have a Sitka Jetstream jacket I wear for wind. Itís warmer than you think it would be, but maybe not enough for you in Montana in November. I wear it into the high 30s if Iím moving around. For a light puffy I wear the Scheel's store brand & havenít been disappointed. I wear it into the low 20s. Colder than that I wear my duck hunting parka.

Are sitting and glassing all day or are you putting in miles and miles?

Wool! Specifically Alpaca for head and hands but then Merino for base layer against skin. Heavy pants and coat/shirt. It's heavy when wet but you're still warm. Can literally take any weather that mother nature throws at ya. If you have a decent rain shell to keep yourself dry in the really bad stuff, then you can just enjoy the hunt. Have fun!

Costco sells a puffer vest that's really warm.

Wife just found that Sitka offers a 40% first responder discount. Best discount we can find so far. So starting to look at their warmer clothing options.

I did a November late hunt in CO and purchased a set of insulated Sitka bibs. That did the trick. If you're a veteran, Sitka will give you 40% off on your purchases. You have to produce your DD214 and you get the pro pricing.
