The helmet for me was and always has been Bombardier BS2V with electric shield.
Joe used something else and it did not work. Zox Snowmobile helmet. Not good!
No electric gear. I rode at -61C without electric gear. I believe as many do that at anything colder than -35C they do not work.
The fleece is Mil Spec polar teck fleece.
For hands, the Hyppo Handz are the single most important piece of equipment.

Hope this could help.
what a cool trip!!!

interesting that heated gear is not desired on an extreme cold ride
