Carry a large enuf backpack to stuff in a full insulated jump suit to immediately put on once your on stand. Dress fairly light for hike in to avoid getting overheated and sweaty. A good wicking base layer, with a goretex fleece outer garments. Bring extra layers to add if needed. Good boots add toe heaters once on stand, LOOSEN boot laces once on stand to improve blood flow to the feet! Lots of heat paks for mittens where you can poke fingers out when needed. And a thermos full of hot chicken broth!
