I love this jacket and with a TNF Fleece you are set.
Living in the Alaska Bush I use this Jacket always. I have a 20min walk to work and it has been as los as -40 this winter & I layered this coat with a underarmor top, t-shirt, TNF Fleece and this Jacket. I had the vents inzipped and had to unzip the jacket to let a little hot air out so I wouldn't sweat (plus I was walking).

This is an awesome Jacket, BUT I just noticed a 4-inch rip along the stiching of the liner. Makes me wonder about the care they take assembling the Jacket since I have only had it 1.5months. Manufacture defect I believe and the company agrees so i am returning this for a refund, untill I find one my size then I will definately purchase it again.

This is a great boot I am in the Alaska Bush and have to walk to & from work (20 min each way, Ice & snow covered streets - they have to be so people can ride their snowmachines to get around). the coldest I have used this boot is -15 thus far and my feet have been just right (not too toasty & nowhere near cold)
I have also just been wearing regular socks or a coolmax (moisture wicking sock) which seems to work fine so far.
As it gets colder I will wear a wool blend for extra warmth - which I have done even though I didn't need to and my feet still didn't over heat & stayed at a good comfortable temp.

I got the womens equivelant for my wife and she loves them so much.

These boots are good grip - heave duty - & I love the height which is just a couple inches above a regular short winter boot, this height seems to offer good support round the anckle for any unexpected slips in the snow or ice; Even though you probable won't slip cause the grip feels pretty secure.

I saw these boots at Sportsmans Warehouse for $149 and a couple other places cheaper than $149.
At these cheaper places they also ship overnight for free and free shipping to Alaska & Hawaii (might take a few extra days though)
I just wish Backcountry would ship free to AK & HI but maybe for a $100 min. I guess it's ok if Backcountry doesn't want the market because we know where to go for good winter gear without paying shipping and the sale price is usually the same or $5 difference which shipping will be more than $5.
Make sure you shop around. I still love the gear backcountry has.
