Decided to write down the gear I'm using now - as most of these things went through a few rounds of trials and changes. If you have questions about any of these items - feel free to ask.
Gloves - Hestra Ski Cross - BackCountry
Pants - Arcteryx Stinger Bib - Moosjaw
Jacket - Arcteryx Alpha SV - Moosejaw
Helmet - Salomon Hacker (blue) - physical store
Goggles - Anon M2 - Backcountry
Skis - 168cm long, 75mm wide

Sidas Pro Set Warming System
Base layer - duofold tshirt
1st thin warm layer

Not recommended - Intuition Power Wrap. Was very uncomfortable and hard on my feet, lost 3 days trying to break it in.
Apparently the boots I bought at the end of last season in London are too big for me. They were my size - 26, but apparently you usually buy a size smaller.
