To be fair, though I used old school long johns and extra clothes until my inlaws bought me the good stuff for xmas
I may upgrade later on, but for the amount of winter ball I play this budget setup didn't cost me much (about 20-30$) and it works to about -10C. After that I don't enjoy it as much.
Common sense is the key here. If you get wet, swap your clothes, if you don't have a warm, dry spot to take a break, don't go out at all unless you really gear up.
