I've started wearing flannel lined pants when it gets below freezing, they really help.

Tennessee "extreme cold" is the equivalent of New York "nice fall day".

You will need to be more specific about your definition of "extreme cold".

I have tried all of them and the best and warmest thermal out there is ECWCS. Designed by the armed forces in the 80's for our troops.
go to any army navy surplus and look at the thermals there I think mine were made by rothco either way they are the best and you can get 2 sets for what one pair of under armor pants would cost you.

I have both, under armour and ecwcs. The only way the ecwcs is better (imo) is if you get the complete, five piece set. I'd rather wear under armour, personally. The grid ecwcs are decent, though.

For me wearing jeans, wool socks, t-shirt, sweatshirt, and a pair of coveralls I have not really gotten cold even in sub zero. I wear my thinsulate gloves under a pair of shooting mittens. And this sitting on a stump waiting for a deer to shoot.
In most situations cold is not really a body thing its a brain thing.

There are a lot of good products that will keep you warm. What you do not want is anything made of cotton.... It will hold moisture from your body, then become what feels like a layer of ice around you...... Not good. I have also found that good socks and footwear are very important. Wick away type socks are well worth the $$ as cheap socks will hold moisture then give you that nice feeling of having your feet in ice. When you lace your boots up, you want them to stay on your feet, but you don't want them to be too tight as not to give your feet a little room and to keep the blood flowing. Keeping your head warm is another area of concern. Wearing a large plastic garbage bag will keep you warm as long as you are up and moving. However, the problem is it doesn't breath, therefore all your body's moisture is trapped in the bag and that bag could literally quickly become your coffin. Basically, if you have a place like Quest Outdoors or someplace that specializes in Mountain climbing, etc., they will be able to help direct you towards products that will work well and hold up well for you.

Justin Charles makes some decent stuff--it's wool. I usually do wool or capilene. Patagonia is my choice for Capilenes.
