    Looks great. Quick question, what's the Pike C-2 like? I've been toying with the idea of picking one up.

    Thin but warm merino wool, just right for wearing under an A-2 .

    Don't mean to bombard you with questions but what's the sizing like? I'll probably order from Aero but I'm unsure about which to go for.

    I take a size 40r and went with a medium. They fit quite snug but I suppose they have to,being worn underneath a jacket.

    Thanks Mark. That really helps and the photo of just the sweater is just what I was after. I think I'm probably a large then. I've asked Ken as well so we'll see if he confirms my suspicions!

    Goodo! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, I love mine . Well handy when the temperature dictates neither hot nor cold.

    Whole outfit looks good. The boots and bags do add a nice touch.

    Went for a wee walk - Eastman Anj-4 and A-10 gloves. Gloves don't offer any warmth if temperature drops below 6C but at least they look good. What do you think fit-wise?

    Looks fine to me.

    It's funny but I find A-10s comfortable down to about -7 Celsius but below that and I need to swap them for some of my more Arctic gear if I'm going to be outside for a long period of time. Saying that I live inside the Arctic Circle now and have become pretty acclimatised to the cold and +6 Celsius would be too warm for me to wear A-10s!

    I wore the A-10 gloves once at -2C and I could feel my fingers stinging from the cold. I took the gloves off and my fingers started warming up :D. It probably has something to do with me being on the lightweight side..
