Used these in my boots last year at Lees Ferry first week of January (had to walk through snow to get to the water) and worked fantastic!

I've even put heat packs in my pants pockets inside my waders and I think that helps keep me toasty too.

Patagonia thermal weight base layer pants and top. fleece over that and wool socks with sock liners. Columbia bugaboo infrared over that all and balaclava. No gloves because they are always wet. Hot hands or what ever hot packs you like... in socks and pockets.

i get cold as ****... and i quit because of it.. so anything people can add... and whisky is a staple on the river... so a good flask is a must.

My favorite cold weather gear is anything insulated with PrimaLoft. It's light, it's packable and most important: it retains around 90% of its insulating value when wet.

Weather

Keep a eye on the weather at Navajo dam, this will help you plan what to pack. Pack for the worse if you see storm cell coming in... E
