RE:Something for this time of year....
I wear Simm's Gore-Tex no matter what time of the year. I have yet to get a cold. I wear Simm's Polartec lined long underwear under a pair of of fleece pants. I had a problem with my feet getting cold, I was just wearing fleece lined smart wool socks. This problem went away when I started wearing large wool socks over my smart wool socks.
Im not super toasty warm like I am if I am wearing my 5 mil bootfoot but that is a small sacrifice for better mobility, no sweating and overall super comfortableness...if thats a word.
