Ah, yes, the great debate. I can just tell you what works for me.
I have three bags - a 20 degree, a 5 degree and a -30 degree. Step one is
choosing the appropriate bag. I have a bit of extra room in the bags - that
is, wearing clothes doesn't particularly compress the bag insulation above
and to my sides.
Beyond that, I ordinarily start off in t-shirt and underwear. If it gets
I'll go to (in order) socks, longsleeve or longjohn shirt, longjohn pants,
knit cap, fleece pullover with hood. I've never been in a situation that
system couldn't handle. The fleece pullover with hood is great because it
keeps the neck area warm even if a bit of cold air slips in.
