I am in need of new cold weather gear. My old wool gear has run its course.
What are your experiences with clothes?
Any manufacturer / style you could recommend.
I don't mind spending money on gear that will last me 10 years.

Take a look at http://www.riverswest.com 10 years warranty. If it needs repaired they will send you a replacement while its fixed. Had mine 5 years wind and waterproof, warm and quiet. Never had a problem with it so far.

Wool, Polyester or Down. Pretty much anything Polar-tec or similar (polyester fleece) has worked very well for me. The Wooltimate fleece that Cabelas sells works well (wool/polyester blend). When things get really cold it's hard to beat goose down.
My biggest gripe with winter apparel is finding good socks. Their are a bunch of supposed "wicking" or "wool" socks out there that are junk. It's amazing how many crappy socks companies sell and then people wonder why they have cold feet.
