    If I may be so bold as to ask what make of jacket and trousers you are wearing in these pictures, particularly the goretex trousers. Im looking for something to withstand those blizzard conditions. Do you wear only a baselayer under the trousers or 3 layers in total. Thanks.

      Hi Darren, we wear Mountain Equipment goretex jacket and salopettes, and ME Tecnopile leggins underneath, both a really good combination.
