Just a side note, I get cold pretty quickly and would much rather be too hot than too cold.. Hopefully that doesn't cause too much of a problem.

I may very easily have forgotten something, so please point that out. I won't take any offense to your suggestions and comments! They're much appreciated.

I also have not bought a lot of these items yet, so they can very easily be changed if you have any ideas for cheaper items that are of equal or better quality!

** means that I have not chosen a specific item, and I am open to any and all suggestions!
