In air and water temps a few degrees above freezing:

- breathables
- oversized studded boots
- capeline sock system
- polypropelene undies
- lined ski pants or quick dry light pants
- gortex jacket
- kangaroo
- heavy shirt
- t shirt or polypropelene undershirt
- fingerless neoprene gloves if necessary
- Filson waterproof fedora

(this is what I'm wearing in my Avatar)

When air temps are at freezing or below and water temps are near freezing:

- all of the above except
- 5mm neoprenes instead of breathabes
- an extra sweater or polypropelene undershirt
- baseball cap worn under the hood
