Hey everybody, 

I will be going to Alaska sometime this winter or next and I'm trying to figure out my clothing system. I realize that the Windcheater is basically a wind shirt with no insulation, and that it is not waterproof. But I am curious what the coldest you all have had it is with proper layering underneath and a Coyote Ruff? Has anyone used it sub -10 degrees? If not, what would a good jacket to serve the same purpose for colder weather be, seeing as the Mountain Parka is still on the back burner?

On the move at those temps (almost always on snowshoes or skis) I'm wearing just a light base layer and a light active insulation jacket (OR Ascendant) w/ the Windcheater over the top.  When stopped I add an appropriate parka, usually just throw over the top of everything as when I'm ready to go I can just strip it off and go.  If I'm going to be stopped for a long time (or at camp), I'll put the Windcheater over the top of the parka.

I do a similar thing to mtwarden. Used it in temps down to -30c in various parts of Canada. Used with various different types of mid and base layers. But it is a fantastic item of clothing. It is my shell layer for anything other then heavy rain.

The windcheater will serve you well no matter what the temperature provided you layer it properly.  It took me a while to figure out that I really only needed base layers underneath it while moving and that the heavy layers I would want for more stationary activities go over top.  (Make sure your heavy insulator is sized large enough to slide over the windcheater easily.)  Coyote ruff is a game changer in really cold weather.  I'm not "Alaska-north" but we just finished a patch of -30C/-20F weather and the windcheater is daily wear.
